Looking for some guidance on this one...

As has been noted, these models does not use Simple IP Control and, apparently, does not respond to normal Sony discrete IR commands.

I am trying to control this TV from an Elan control system. Their supported Sony IP driver doesn't work because it uses Simple IP Control.

I have looked through some documentation for IP control of this line and am able to use the application that Sony has on their website. I have also looked at trying to use Wireshark to see if I can capture the commands. I am trying to write some simple commands to turn on/off the TV and make sure it's on the correct input. The documentation says it uses REST API. From Sony: REST API uses JSON-RPC over HTTP. I am trying to see if I can emulate the commands from something like PuTTY before attempting to control from Elan. I did some searching to see what port REST uses. I got a few different results.

Can anyone help guide me in the right direction and, maybe, keep me from spinning my wheels more than necessary?
