I had some spare time recently  and spent it playing with my BO gear.

I reversed engineered TuneIN protocol and fetched all the data, as a result I don't need anymore TuneIN as I replicated it with a nicer interface and in-house control panel to control the radio and soon DLNA too.

Attached video is a fun part integration, I love planes hence scan the sky around my house, whenever A380 is flying over it stops the playback triggers an announcement on the selected BO gear and resumes previous playback.

BS9000 hardware control is implemented, now wiring bits to modern interface. First mock-up of what it looks when you choose in the browser which CD will be played.

Yep, I have seen this. Assessing wiring BO APIs into the new HomeKit class.

Are you using Homebridge and a customised node?

mczac:

Just completed text-to-speach module, so I will be tracking important twitter hashtags, follow Man United scores and interrupt music playback on BO gear when permitted with a breaking news on a score or news headlines.

Since Jose left this might happen more often now! Big Smile

Any chance you can post your custom node for HomeBridge on Git? Would love to play around with it

I'd be interested in too - I've been hacking around with pretty much everything in my house that isn't already supported by Homebridge, and my A9 mk2 is one of them.  I've pushed a very basic plugin for now (look for homebridge-beoplay in the npm repo), but would be interested in feedback and testing. The difficult thing is figuring out what would actually be useful to add into HomeKit as the AV support is sadly lacking.
