I don't want to have to buy another thing. I'd rather be able to use something I already have. And besides, I want a Wireless Solution so I can Control the Roku when I'm away from it and I don't have an iTouch or iPhone.

Re: Roku PHP Remote

Ill work on AJAXing it when I get home

Also, Any Idea how we can make something like a queue for requests for the keyboard, so its not all sent to the roku at once

I got the AJAX on the buttons working, its just the keyboard thats the hard part, I was thinking on everytime an onKeyUp event was sent, it would add the key pressed to an array that would be the request queue, so all the requests dont get sent at once, do you think that will work?

Here you go:

And also, if you go up too many times on the keyboard, will it go back to the previous screen?

EDIT: I also included a little telnet simulator

Re: Roku PHP Remote

well i am gonna let people play with this in the main forum.

the one im submitting for the beta will be with out keyboard for now...

i will mess with it more this week as well. but as is was if you hit the submit on the text part it was not sending the ip any longer...

I was originally using it for me to get the IP like this:
$ip=$REMOTE_ADDR;


maybe should go back to that or use a option if you use no ip or dyn dns... i figure we'll let the forum guys play with it and give opinions.

Re: Roku PHP Remote

Out of respect to you, dynamitemedia, I'll post this here rather than in the main thread you posted about the remote...

If I'm reading this thread and the main forum thread correctly, it seems that you're encouraging folks to expose their Roku's to the internet to use a web based remote... ?? That sounds like a very very bad idea to me, as it would allow anyone who knows their external IP to control their Roku. I'd strongly encourage you to, at the very least, explain this exposure in the thread, if not remove it completely, before the less technical forum members get caught out by someone more malicious.

Okay, I fixed it by adding a hidden form with the ip

EDIT 2: Are these the two keyboards that the roku uses?
