Remote scheduling web api?

    Hi Guys

    I love the work you have done with the remote scheduling website.

    Is there by any chance an api I can hook into? I'd like to build an android application to use instead of the website and so ideally I'd quite like some raw objects like an epg tree in xml or something.

    kind regards

    There isn't for most of it but I'm willing to add what you need - JSON is probably easier for me to produce than XML if you don't have a strong preference.

    The mobile version of the RS website works ok on Android I'm told but won't be as good as a native app.

    To get a session cookie, you just need to post hpuser and hppass to any page then just pass that cookie in any future requests (the iPhone SDK handles that for you so I presume the Android one does something similar).

    Hi Af123,

    Json is fine by me!

    With the session cookie I should be able to figure something out.

    I'll have a think about the sort of information I'd like from the site. What information would be easy to set up?

    Everything I would think - schedule + pending events + queued commands, auto entries, epg data, top X programmes...

    Just wondered if anyone got anywhere with this?

    unfortunately I haven't done any more with this idea yet.
