Serial Number -> Model

Does anyone have an up to date mapping of Serial Number to Model?

I am working on a remote app for android that uses the SSDP discovery protocol to find devices on the local network. This protocol returns the serial number, but I would like to display a model to the user.

The best I could find was this older thread: viewtopic.php?p=332228 but it seems to be out of date.

Re: Serial Number -> Model

The SSDP response includes a Location URL for the device description.
You can then make an http request to download the device description which includes friendlyName, modelName, modelNumber, etc. ... trol+Guide contains some relevant tips as well.

Hope that helps.

Re: Serial Number -> Model

Yep, UPnP descriptor FTW!
Esp. after Roku made <friendlyName/> be the user-chosen/given name; much rejoice, peace and blessings be upon them. Seriously though, that classed-up the ECP/DIAL apps.

Any chance we can get the current firmware version added to the descriptor as well?
