Favourite list is almost here

I had to decide some timeline since many minor features keep creeping in my workflow.

guide
Experimenting with different features sometime little usability gems came to light:
with a “secondary” network remote it’s possible to “tune” to different channels while keep browsing the guide using the command:
http://_DVR_IP_:8080/tv/tune?major=_XXX_
where _DVR_IP_ is the dvr network address and _XXX_ is the channel.
That’ the command the I’ll use for the Remote’s favourities.

The Genie is (almost) out of the bottle

Ok, after deployed the new

IP receiver(s) interface I can focus on try to wrap my head around the GENIE support. Once a receiver is being selected I have to make sure to query the list of miniunits connected to the servers.

The command
http://:8080/info/getLocations
should return

{
"locations": [
{
"clientAddr": "0",
"locationName": "BONUS"
},
{
"clientAddr": "B4F2E8BA0C41",
"locationName": "OFFICE"
}
],
"status": {
"code": 200,
"commandResult": 0,
"msg": "OK.",
"query": "/info/getLocations"
}
}

Then I should be able to send commands directly to the sub-boxes adding the clientaddress in the queries…
At least in theory.
Any volounter out there that would help me test things out a bit?
