Async API wrapper for Samsumgs set-top boxes SMT-G7400 and SMT-G7401.

Project description

Build Status PyPI

Horimote ======

Horimote is an API wrapper for the set-top boxes SMT C7400 and SMT C7401. In the Netherlands these boxes are sold by a big Dutch cable operator under the name Horizon Box. The name Einder is a Dutch synonym for horizon.

I'd like to thank OrangeTux & kuijp for their einder work on horizoncontrol. This is just another shameless Python rip off. Focus on Horzion Box from Unitymedia Germany.


$ pip install horimote


horimote.Client controls the set-top box by sending bytes. These bytes represent the buttons of a remote control. You can find all supported keys in horimote.keys. The example shows how to send keys.

import time

import logging
from horimote import Client
from horimote import keys

# Enable logging.

# Replace IP with the IP of your set-top box. The port parameter is optional,
# by default its 5900.
c = Client("", port=5900)


# Wait a few seconds to let the set-top box have some time to start.

# Select channel 501.

# For selecting a channel horimote.Client offers a small helper function.

# No watch some TV...


The horimote.Client can also be used as a context manager:

from horimote import Client

with Client("") as c:
