Apple TV 4 IP commands

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there are any Apple TV4 IP commands available to control it from the ISY. I have successfully controlled my Yamaha Receiver and my satellite through the ISY. I can say Alexa turn on the TV. It turns on the TV, satellite and receiver. It also puts the TV and Receiver on the proper inputs and turns on the wall unit lights to a predetermined level. (movie mode). I can also say Alexa turn on the Food Network and it switches the channels. I have done only a few TV stations so far. I really would like to control the Apple TV through IP. I do have an option to use the Global Cache Itach to control through IR but would rather not.

That would be via airplay which requires a session token. It requires an external program on a server to manage it,

Here is an example from rehills: http://forum.universal-devices.com/topic/18417-do-i-really-need-to-build-all-these-resources/?p=175065

Thanks Paul. I think I will go the easy route. I already have a Global Cache Itach which I'm using for the TV and I will just use IR for the Apple TV4. Was trying to get away from using the IR cable on the front of the unit.
