Mediaroom


The mediaroom component allows you to control a Mediaroom Set-Top Box (STB) from Home Assistant.

To add a Mediaroom STB to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
media_player:
  - platform: mediaroom

Configuration Variables

host

(string)(Optional)The hostname or IP address of the device.

Default value: Tries to discovery your device.

name

(string)(Optional)The name of the device used in the frontend.

Default value: Mediaroom STB

optimistic

(boolean)(Optional)In case the component cannot determine the status of the box, consider the box always ON.

Default value: false

Notice that all parameters are optional, and discovery should configure everything for you.

Using the Mediaroom component

The component has been developed for Portuguese TV operators currently using the Mediaroom platform, but should also work in other deployments in which the STB can be controlled remotely through a socket on port 8082.

In most cases (single STB) you just need to setup the platform and discovery will do the rest. In case you have more than one STB you are required to set the host in each one of the entries.

If the STB is on the same network segment as Home Assistant, it can determine whether the device is turned on or off. Without this, the component will fail to determine the Set-top box status, and you are required to add the optimistic configuration variable.

Example configuration with 2 STB

# Example configuration.yaml entry for 2 STB
media_player:
  - platform: mediaroom
    host: 192.168.1.64
    name: Living Room STB
  - platform: mediaroom
    host: 192.168.1.65
    name: Bedroom STB
