API for Virgin TV 360 box?


Just moved from SKY to Virgin (7 days of pain !)

I had been using the SKY remote node for some integrations, so now I'm looking for a similar solution for Virgin. Does anyone have any useful info to share here, I couldn't find anything in the forum.

Thanks in advance :wink:

PS @Paul-Reed I wish I had seen your post first, same issues still apply an IP of router cannot be changed at all now.

Hi @smcgann99

Also a VM user.

The Tivo (v6) box uses a telnet server (I use it) - I have a V6 box, if its the same box they use for the 360 offering?

You can send IRCODE commands.

return {payload:"IRCODE STANDBY\r\n"}

see below

[{"id":"5f4f6c41.155fcc","type":"function","z":"b226f5b7.5674d8","g":"b8ba2d13.7dce","name":"ON","func":"return {payload:\"IRCODE STANDBY\\r\\n\"}","outputs":1,"noerr":0,"initialize":"","finalize":"","libs":[],"x":610,"y":320,"wires":[["2af4ad5.a73b652"]]},{"id":"2af4ad5.a73b652","type":"tcp request","z":"b226f5b7.5674d8","g":"b8ba2d13.7dce","name":"","server":"","port":"31339","out":"immed","ret":"buffer","splitc":" ","newline":"","trim":false,"tls":"","x":795,"y":345,"wires":[[]]},{"id":"5356d303.fc7ae4","type":"function","z":"b226f5b7.5674d8","g":"b8ba2d13.7dce","name":"OFF","func":"return {payload:\"IRCODE STANDBY\\r\\nIRCODE STANDBY\\r\\n\"}","outputs":1,"noerr":0,"initialize":"","finalize":"","libs":[],"x":610,"y":365,"wires":[["2af4ad5.a73b652"]]}]

I think the Tivo IRCODE commands are heavily documented - you may need to enable remote connection in the Tivo settings

You will notice to turn it off - I send 2 STANDBY - as the 2nd confirms your action to turn it off

From what I have read I think it may be a no go. This was posted - ‎22-06-2022

Unfortunately, we have no further news yet in terms of IP control of the TV360 boxes yet - please be assured that if and when this is available, we'll be sure to communicate this to you and all customers.

I don't think they publicly announced the V6 telnet server.
might be worth seeing if it connects?

or nmap :wink:

Yeah already tried telnet, just times out. There are no options on the box to enable anything.

However I think there are some integrations in HA etc, possible reverse engineered from a web app - so I think it should be possible from NR.
