I would like to ask for the ability to control the box via the Ethernet interface.
This should include
- Transport control
- Power on/off
- Selection of file to play
The information should be two-way i.e., the box can be queries a to what is playing, what state it is in (playing, stopped).
This will allow the WDTV Live to be used in home automation scenarios and as a headless box (such as a jukebox) where a custom head-end can be used.
And of course, all of this needs to be documented and made available.
