Philips TV


The philips_js platform allows you to control Philips TVs which expose the jointSPACE JSON-API. Instructions on how to activate the API and if your model is supported can be found here. Note that not all listed, jointSPACE-enabled devices won’t have JSON-interface running on port 1925. This is true at least for some models before year 2011.

To add your TV to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
media_player:
  - platform: philips_js
    host: 192.168.1.99

Configuration Variables

host string Required, default: 127.0.0.1 (localhost).

IP address of TV.

name string (Optional, default: Philips TV)

The name you would like to give to the Philips TV.

turn_on_action list (Optional)

A script that will be executed to turn on the TV (can be used with wol).

api_version integer (Optional, default: 1)

The JointSpace API version of your Philips TV. This is an experimental option and not all the functionalities are guaranteed to work with API versions different from 1 and 5.

When using api_version: 5 changing sources switches tv channels. Additionally this allows setting the volume level.
