A few notes:

  • The receiver handles only one telnet connection and refuses others.

  • To be able to wake up the receiver, activate the “remote” setting in the receiver’s settings.
  • Play and pause are supported, toggling is not possible.
  • Seeking cannot be implemented as the UI sends absolute positions. Only seeking via simulated button presses is possible.
