It’d be easy to map current user I/O functionality to UART, i.e. treating a received char as remote control key and printing out same data that is output on character display. I’m not sure how useful that’d be, though.
While a fancy interface would be more preferrable, it would still be nice to map the current functionality to UART and print out the same stuff as displayed. It would make remote controlling the OSSC possible. Since I’m sitting so far away from the OSSC, I can’t even see what’s being displayed.
Using an ESP to send commands and parse the output, would provide at enough to make a small webinterface which can be used on a smartphone, displaying the same buttons as on the remote and showing the display output.
But I am right in the assumption that this still has to be implemented and is not part of the current firmware, right?
