I am looking for a simple way to get some control over my mediabox+tv in the bedroom. Downstairs i use a receiver, Logitech hub etc. But upstairs i wanna keep it simple, but i wonder how much control i could get and what is the best way to proceed. Right now i use a tv remote to control the tv and a mouse for the media box. I hope i can use my phone instead to control atleast 1 of the 2.
I use a mediabox and a philips tv. Both are plugged into a smart pocketsocket. The tv i have to keep turning on and off by remote i guess. And the mediabox i have to look into the possibility of Wake On Lan.
I have a rule that when power drops X amount the socket turns off. My Kodi / Media box has Wifi and bluetooth on it. Can i make use of this in ST? I would prefer to be able to control the mediabox with ST so i can also watch tv through an app. If it is not possible maybe i can just control Kodi with ST? But in that case i still need to have a mouse nearby to change tv channels if i watch tv through my tv app.
Any suggestions what to do? Or anyone with a similar setup? Any tips are welcome!
