Table of Contents
1. Status monitoring :
1.1. JSON files:
2. Access to the CAM menu:
3. Electronic program guide

To activate the webservices, just enable the unicast mode with something like that:

unicast=1 : Activate the internal webserver
ip_http= : IP address for accepting the HTTP requests
port_http=8005 : Listening port

NoteWhen you use several card on one server you can use the template %card for the listening port. Ex: port_http=4000+%card. Ports higher than 1024 can be used by unprivileged users.
The webservices responses are not SOAP compliant, but formatted in simple XML documents (UTF-8) or in JSON. The output can be easily parsed in PHP for example.

Status monitoring :
There is no input parameters. URL : http://ip_http:port_http/monitor/state.xml

1.1. JSON files:
You can get similar information in the JSON files
  • http://ip_http:port_http/channels_list.json
  • http://ip_http:port_http/monitor/signal_power.json
  • http://ip_http:port_http/channels_traffic.json
  • http://ip_http:port_http/monitor/state.json
2. Access to the CAM menu:

These two webservices allow for accessing the CAM menu during streaming. This is usefull for checking rights or download status for example.
The file cam_menu.php is a simple demonstration on how to use these webservices in order to make a web interface with AJAX compatible with the most important browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer).
For using it, you just need a webserver (lighttpd, apache, etc.) with PHP activated. The web page accept one GET parameter: port_server. This is the unicast port setup for accessing MuMuDVB webservices.
The CAM menu is refresded every 2 seconds and buttons can be used to navigate in the menus. MENU, LIST and ENQUIRY MMI objects are supported.
Case when the CAM isn’t initialized:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<datetime><![CDATA[Mon Nov 1 22:08:17 2010]]></datetime> => Last update time/date
<object><![CDATA[NONE]]></object> => No object to show
<title><![CDATA[CAM not initialized!]]></title> => Message about CAM not initialized
Case when the CAM is initialized but there is no menu to display:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<datetime><![CDATA[Tue Nov 2 22:38:37 2010]]></datetime> => Last update time/date
<cammenustring><![CDATA[Aston Module 2.1800]]></cammenustring> => CAM model
<object><![CDATA[NONE]]></object> => No object to show
<title><![CDATA[No menu to display]]></title> => Message about no menu to display
Case when a object is send by the CAM to be displayed:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<datetime><![CDATA[Tue Nov 2 22:39:58 2010]]></datetime> => When the object was received
<cammenustring><![CDATA[Aston Module 2.1800]]></cammenustring> => CAM model
<object><![CDATA[MENU]]></object> => Object: "MENU", "LIST" or "ENQUIRY"
<title><![CDATA[Module Aston]]></title> => Object title
<subtitle><![CDATA[Carte num ro 544.193.724]]></subtitle> => Object subtitle (when an "ENQUIRY" object is display, show the number of characters expected in the answer)
<item num="0"><![CDATA[Return]]></item> => For "MENU" and "LIST" objects, contain the lines of information or the items to be choosen. The "num" attribute correspond to the key to press to choose the item.
<item num="1"><![CDATA[Consultation des droits]]></item>
<item num="2"><![CDATA[R glages]]></item>
<item num="3"><![CDATA[Information]]></item>
<bottom><![CDATA[Votre choix, svp]]></bottom> => Object bottom line
  • Second webservice allows for sending response to the CAM. There is one integer GET paramter: key. Possible keys: 0 to 9 (numbers), M for asking the CAM menu, C for cancelling an ENQUIRY object. URL : http://ip_http:port_http/cam/action.xml?key=X There are 4 king of responses.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<datetime><![CDATA[Mon Nov 1 22:13:30 2010]]></datetime>
Unknown key:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>

<result><![CDATA[ERROR: Unknown key!]]></result>
CAM not initialized:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<datetime><![CDATA[Mon Nov 1 22:13:30 2010]]></datetime>

3. Electronic program guide
The content of the EIT table (electronic programs guide) is now available via the Webservices.
To enable it, put store_eit=1 in your configuration file and get the file:
  • http://ip_http:port_http/monitor/EIT.json

NOTE: I don´t know the way not to appear these emoticon :p (its colon and p) SORRY !

Thanks for reading!

Very nice indeed. This will help a lot of people.

I used to use MuMu and they are a good solid platform + its FREE which is awesome.
