Sky launched an update to the iPad Sky+ app this week, which enables the ability to remotely control your Sky box over IP, if you’re updated to the new picasso interface. Obviously, I needed to figure out how it all works, and how I could write my own code to control it. Here are my inital findings.
The service is a DNLA/UPnP type thing, that runs on http://[sky-box-ip]:49153/
Authentication is provided simply by User-Agent. SKY_skyplus works.
More information is after the break.
