Welcome to the AndroidTV driver for myServer 6.

AndroidTV is a highly popular media management content player.  Now, you can add a user interface within your myServer system where you can launch AndroidTV installed apps like Kodi, Plex or Netflix.

The AndroidTV driver is very flexible.  It works with most AndroidTV based media devices, like the FireTV stick.  You can choose which player you would like to launch.  Control the AndroidTV transport controls. And of course the user interface is completely configurable using myDesigner!

New is the ability to control an AndroidTV box to act just like a DirecTV / CableTV box remote control.  Use the sample androidtv.html webpage to try it.  The driver supports the keycodes defined here https://developer.android.com/reference/android/view/KeyEvent#constants

Since the SmartRemote handheld remote control uses AndroidOS, you can use the AndroidTV Driver to find and communicate with the remote control.  You can have myServer put the SmartRemote asleep (and black out the display) using the AV|324~SendKey~SLEEP command.  Perfect for Home Theater usage.

Big Feature:  As the AndroidTV boxes support "CEC" control, you can control a CEC compatible TV functions (Power, volume, input source etc) without need for the dumb TV to be connected directly to myServer (traditionally via serial, IR or TCPIP).  Simplifies the setup significantly.  Just plug a FireTV stick into the TV, connect FireTV to WiFi, and control the TV via myServer events and user interfaces.

How it Works:

myServer 6 connects to the AndroidTV device via ethernet (wired or WiFi).  myServer then looks up the coverart from our Internet sources. Since myServer also support many physical remote controls, the user can also use an integrated remote for the transport functions - even if the AndroidTV stick is not in the same room - even over the Internet!

 System Requirements:

  • myServer v6
  • Android OS device on same network as myServer 6
    • FireTV (running AndroidTV OS) stick installed and on same network as myServer controller.
    • Kodi (v17), Plex or Netflix application running on the AndroidTV stick.
    • Nvidia Shield
    • SmartRemote

App Installation:

  1. Shutdown myServer 6.
  2. Download and run the AndroidTV driver installer from Software Updater on the primary myServer 6 PC.
  3. Restart myServer 6.

Device types supported

Note: use these specific device type names when configuring your devices in the AndroidTV driver.  Once that device is assigned a Room, myServer will then create the correct associated device activation macro for that device type.

  • chromecast
  • firetv
  • shieldtv
  • signage (for Allonis's Digital Signage application)
  • smartremote
  • touchscreen
  • tivostream
  • tv
  • xaiomi

 The device must be assigned a room.  Not "Unknown" or "Whole House" for the macros to be auto created.

The Discovery command will attempt to find applicable devices and determine what type of device it is and add it automatically.

 

FireTV installation (example):

  1. Unpack FireTV4K Max stick and accessories
  2. Install batteries in FireTV handheld remote
  3. Plug FireTV HDMI into HDMI monitor
  4. Best is to use an ethernet adapter to FireTV Power connection and not use Wifi for reliability (optional hardware purchase)
  5. Boot the FireTV stick
  6. Click FireTV remote.  Click the Play / Pause button when advised.
  7. Select your Language / Market
  8. Wifi will search for your Wifi Access Point (if no ethernet connection)
  9. Select your Wifi access point and add your Wifi Password
  10. The FireTV stick will then download and install software updates from FireTV Amazon server (not myServer).  Do not disconnect from power during this upgrade.
  11. FireTV stick will reboot with latest OS installed.  Will make another check for Updates and install.
  12. You will be asked to either Login or create an account.  If you choose to Login, you will be provided an Activation Code to be used on amazon.com/code
  13. Once you register your device with your Amazon account via the website, the FireTV stick will try to login to your account.
  14. Allow the system to register the device to your account.
  15. You will be asked if you want to add your historic apps / settings.
  16. You will be asked if you want to enable Parental Controls.
  17. You will be asked what TV you are using.  If you are using myServer 6 to control your TV directly, then the FireTV doesn't need to "know" what type of TV you are using it with.
  18. After your TV choice you might be asked to check volume support by clicking volume up / down.  If you accept that this is working, the setup should then be complete. 

 

FireTV ADB Configuration:

  1. Ensure AndroidTV stick is on same network as myServer 6.
  2. Click on the My FireTV settings within the AndroidTV Settings menu
  3. Click on About AndroidTV about 10 times in a row.  This will enable Developer menu.  This only needs to be done once on the device.
  4. Click on Developer Options.  Click on Enable ADB.  Save. 
  5. You might need to enter a PIN to enter Developer Mode depending on the hardware.  try 3694.
  6. Restart AndroidTV stick to ensure your settings are in effect.

 

Nvidia Shield ADB Configuration:
Enable debugging
 

1. Goto Settings on the Shield.

2. Go across to About in Device.

3. Go down to Build and click on it 10 times until it says you are in development mode.
 
ADB over USB
 
1. Make sure you have performed the above steps "Enable debugging"
2. Goto Settings
3. Go Across to Developer options
4. Go down to Debugging
5. Toggle USB debugging to On
 
ADB over Network
 
1. Make sure you have performed the above steps "Enable debugging"
2. Make sure you have performed the above steps "ADB over USB"
3. Toggle Network debugging to On
When On, you should see a message "Enabled in (mac address IP address)"
 
Restart myServer
In a few seconds, you should see an acceptance request on the Shield screen.  Accept to allow the ADB communications from myServer (saved).

 

App Configuration:

  1. Configure your chosen app (Kodi, Plex, Netflix) as per that apps documentation

 

AndroidTV Driver Commands:

Use Command Builder to see the current supported commands and their syntax.

The driver natively knows how to launch  Kodi, Tablo, Games, YouTube and Prime Video. Additionally it supports a custom launch command that will let you integrate any new app you find in the future. (However, if it is an app with wide appeal still tell us about it)

To use the custom launcher the command looks like

AV|<<id>>~Launch~<<app name>>

e.g.

AV|12~Launch~monkey -p com.google.android.youtube.tv 1

notice you do not need to include the "adb shell" bits.

 

Some Tidbits:

The AndroidTV driver uses "ADB" (Android Development Bridge).  You can read more here: https://developer.android.com/studio/command-line/adb

This allows ability to control the Android application running on the AndroidTV stick.  It also allows control of a CEC compatible device (like the TV).

Long Press command is supported.

You can also use ADB to install / uninstall an application (like Kodi or myUI.apk) remotely on the AndroidTV device (like a FireTV stick).  Note there is also a Install Digital Signage...this is software that installs to a FireTV 4K stick that enables Allonis's myDigitalSignage system.

ADB is downloadable here: https://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

Note that ADB is already installed on myServer with the AndroidTV installation.  myUI and Kodi.apk and DigitalSignage are already installed to the myServer\downloads\apk directory.  Don't move these files directly into the downloads directory.  Keep them in the apk directory.

  1. On the myServer PC, shutdown myServer.  This is because only one instance of ADB can be connected to a device at one time.
  2. Download to the myServer\adb\files directory the app you would like to install. (note: for FireTV stick - download the 32bit Android version of the wanted app)
  3. Restart the AndroidTV box to clear any prior ADB sessions.
  4. Ensure ADB is enabled in the Android About Developer's menu
  5. From the myServer PC, open an Administrator's Command Prompt.
  6. cd c:\Program Files (x86)\Allonis\myServer\ADB
  7. type: adb connect <<IP address of the AndroidTV device>>   Sometimes you have to do this twice... 
  8. type: .\adb install <<path to apk file>>  example:  .\adb install files\kodi-18.0-Leia_rc5.2-armeabi-v7a.apk
  9. Your apk file should install on the AndroidTV device.  In a few minutes it should say "Success"
  10. Once your app is installed, you can do a "adb disconnect" to have the AndroidTV box release the Command Prompt device connection.
  11. Start myServer.
  12. Restart the AndroidTV device. You likely will be asked on the AndroidTV box if you want to enable ADB on XXXX device.  Select Always and Yes.  This should be re-enabling the connection to myServer's ADB instance.
  13. You can also "adb uninstall <<application name>>"  When you are ADB connected to the device.
  14. You can also do a "adb devices" command to see what devices are currently connected to your Command Prompt device (not the AndroidTV device).

 

For easy remote management of the AndroidTV box, try using Teamviewer Host app: https://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/mobile-apps/

You can install Teamviewer host initially via ADB (see above) and then connect via your desktop PC via TeamViewer.

CEC remote control:

 Connectivity via ADB

Confirm your device is connected ADB via USB:

ADB Devices

You should see the device(s)

If you run  adb shell ls /sdcard/ 

You should see the USB connected devices directory to confirm connection.

Ensure your device is also connected to the ethernet network:

sudo nmap -p- 192.168.1.41    Checks if any ports are open.  ADB default is 5555.  SmartRemote and SmartSwitch are on 55055

 adb tcpip 5555    If connected via a USB cable, sends ADB via ethernet over port 5555

adb connect 192.168.1.44:5555    Connects the computer to the ADB device via IP.

 You should be able to disconnect the USB cable and still issue ADB commands.

  === Few bash snippets ===
  @Source (https://jonfhancock.com/bash-your-way-to-better-android-development-1169bc3e0424)
   
  === Using tail -n
  //Use tail to remove the first line. Actually two lines. The first one is just a newline. The second is “List of devices attached.”
  $ adb devices | tail -n +2
   
  === Using cut -sf
  // Cut the last word and any white space off the end of each line.
  $ adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf -1
   
  === Using xargs -I
  // Given the -I option, xargs will perform an action for each line of text that we feed into it.
  // We can give the line a variable name to use in commands that xargs can execute.
  $ adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf -1 | xargs -I X echo X aw yiss
   
  === Three options below together
  // Will print android version of all connected devices
  adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf -1 | xargs -I X adb -s X shell getprop ro.build.version.release
   
  === Using alias
  -- Example 1
  alias tellMeMore=echo
  tellMeMore "hi there"
  Output => hi there
  -- Example 2
  // Define alias
  alias apkinstall="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X install -r $1"
  // And you can use it later
  apkinstall ~/Downloads/MyAppRelease.apk // Install an apk on all devices
  -- Example 3
  alias rmapp="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X uninstall $1"
  rmapp com.example.myapp // Uninstall a package from all devices
  -- Example 4
  alias clearapp="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X shell pm clear $1"
  clearapp com.example.myapp // Clear data on all devices (leave installed)
  -- Example 5
  alias startintent="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X shell am start $1"
  startintent https://twitter.com/JonFHancock // Launch a deep link on all devices
   
   
  Setting up your .bash_profile
  Finally, to make this all reusable even after rebooting your computer (aliases only last through the current session), we have to add these to your .bash_profile. You might or might not already have a .bash_profile, so let’s make sure we append to it rather than overwriting it. Just open a terminal, and run the following command
   
  touch .bash_profile && open .bash_profile
   
  This will create it if it doesn’t already exist, and open it in a text editor either way. Now just copy and paste all of the aliases into it, save, and close.
   
  alias startintent="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X shell am start $1"
  alias apkinstall="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X install -r $1"
  alias rmapp="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X uninstall $1"
  alias clearapp="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X shell pm clear $1"

Known Issues

Discovery: Uses Ping to see if a devices is live on that IP.  If alive, then uses nmap to discover open ports that might be used by ADB.  nmap doesn't traverse multiple networks.  So if device is a Wifi device, then it might not be discoverable via the ethernet network.

If there are multiple NIC on the myServer 6 controller, discovery will attempt to find ADB devices on all networks.

If the network is very slow, Discovery might not wait long enough for a reply to find the device.  This can be changed, but then Discovery will take signficantly longer to scan all networks.  Recommendation is to fix slow network problems or manually add the device.

Need to add full command line to top of command builder list for ease of use.

Have to restart myServer for new ADB added device to display in the PowerTesting UI.

 3/15/2023:  Driver update: Refactoring done to the code and we are seeing about a 100ms decrease in response times to commands with this update.

 4/12/2024:

Test:

Download this arm64 version from  github.com/lzhiyong/android-sdk-tools/re...s-static-aarch64.zip .
Unzip this to the /usr/lib/android-sdk/platform-tools folder replacing the files that are there. You'll need sudo for this.

wget  github.com/lzhiyong/android-sdk-tools/re...s-static-aarch64.zip
unzip android-sdk-tools-static-aarch64.zip
sudo cp platform-tools/* /usr/lib/android-sdk/platform-tools

Then ADB pair should work.

On the Android device make sure you enable Wireless debugging and click on ."Pair device with pairing code"
Note the IP Address & Port shown in the Pair with device dialog.

From the myServer controller's terminal window issue the command
adb pair ip Address and port from above.
for example: adb pair 192.168.0.124:45361

When prompted to "Enter pairing code" type in the pairing code as displayed on the Android device.
You should get a "Successfully paired to" message displaying a pairing guid like [guid=adb-R5CRC3LT5RK-jtXDDE]

Now from the Android driver in the Dashboard you will need to manually add a new AndroidTV device.
Select AddDevice from the command builder:

Make sure to select IP Port 0, and set the MAC Address field to the value of the quid from above. Your command should look something like.
AndroidTV|AddDevice~New ATV~192.168.0.124~0~AndroidTV~0~~adb-R5CRC3LT5RK-jtXDDE~Unknown

Execute the command to add the device.

When the AndroidTV device is using port 0 that will trigger additional logic in the driver to automatically go out and find the current adb port on the device and use that.
Once it finds the port it will connect to it.

Now, our experience with my Samsung phone is that each time the phone is restarted it will not automatically enabled wireless adb debugging. You'll have to remember to go back in and re-enable when your Android device restarts. Also, another added feature is that it will assign a new adb port every time it gets enabled. The driver has logic in it to catch the old port becoming invalid and going out and finding the new one.

This has been working fine here using my Samsung Galaxy phone as the test device.

Once it is connected then all the normal adb commands will work.

Lots of steps but the bulk of them only need to happen once.
