Wondering if from the http://ip.address:8060 you can pull the firmware version installed from XML data. Working on a PHP page that pulls my Roku's information so then if I am not home (or in the middle of watching something, don't want to stop it) I can post information to RokuShawnS when needed (might share the code when I am done so you all with local webhosts can use it). I got it giving Model #s and Serial, which was easy. Just need the query to generate the XML, I got the PHP part down.
Basically I have it scanning to see what model I have output the Branding Name in bold, Generation number, Model #, and then the Serial. I just basically put in my URLs for Rokus (I have them in DNS, which is why I don't have IPs) in the code right now since I know them. This code depends on the Rokus to have Reserved IPs and you to know your Rokus' IPs.
