Sharp TV Network Remote Plugin - Introduction & Installation

Introduction
This plugin allows Indigo to control Sharp AQUOS televisions via their network (IP) control protocol. Sharp's protocol is very robust and, as a result, this plugin is able to both read and set nearly every aspect of the television - from volume/channel through configurations such as picture mode, aspect ratio, etc.

v1.2.9 Released
Sharp TV Network Remote has been upgraded to v1.2.9, with the following changes:

  • Improved error handling to suppress a couple of unnecessary errors from hitting the Indigo log
  • Added support to auto-reconnect to the television whenever a connection is lost (e.g. power outage or network interruption). Previously the plugin would attempt to reconnect whenever the next command was issued, but this prevented status updates in the interim.
