How do you determine Roku model from an ECP app?

The Roku Remote app is able to determine the model of Roku players (e.g. Roku XDS Player, Roku 2 XS Player, etc.) it discovers. How is this done? I'm particular interested in determining which players are Roku 1 and which are Roku 2.

Thanks,

phil

My guess is that it is parsing the xml file provided on port 8060. Afterall that is the location address provided in the SSDP notify.

The only XML document returned by the player that I am familiar with is the Channel/App ID list.

Which XML document are you referring to and how do you retrieve it?

I thought the information might be encoded in the Serial # of the player or perhaps the MAC address of the player could be mapped to a model number. I have access to both the serial number and MAC address.

Hitting http://LOCAL_ROKU_IP:8060/ should return something similar to the following:

Thanks scyber and gonzotek! What you suggested gives me just what I am looking for. I don't know how I missed hitting the port with no command.

It's undocumented Smiley Happy
It would be nice if Roku bothered to include firmware version in that descriptor, hintity-hint

Including the firmware version information in the <modelDescription> element would provide added value rather than rehashing information from other elements like it currently does.
