#143

Since I have python3.5, in CLI I ran:
PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python3.5/dist-packages:/srv/homeassistant/lib/python3.5/site-packages
but nothing changed, same error. Should I upgrade?


#144

just tagged the latest python-ps4 module and pushed to pypi.


#145

I can’t seem to make this component turn off the PS4, it correctly shows what’s playing on it tho.

Also, it will turn on the console, but it won’t start the game I select.

Ideas?


#146

theres still a lot of limitations and bugs in the python ps4-waker module so only lookups are working, the rest of the features still need a lot of work.


#147

Oh I see, thanks for the info!


#148

I could use some help with this component please!

I have it all set up, I can see what games I am playing and change games, however the power button is not working to turn the ps4 to rest mode, or turn it back on with the media player. I have created a switch that has on command “sudo ps4-wake” and off command “sudo ps4-wake standby” and they both work perfectly.

Would there be any reason that the power button on the media_player wouldn’t be toggling the power? But the switch works fine. I also tried to create commands turn_on and turn_off for the media player which toggle the switch I made but that doesn’t work…

hmm


#149

@hmn I tried this command and got this:

DEBUG:pyps4.ddp:send_recv_msg 192.168.31.151 [WAKEUP * HTTP/1.1
user-credential: <CREDENTIAL HERE
client-type:a
auth-type:C
device-discovery-protocol-version:00020020
]

But the configurator is erroring out:

I’m on HASSbian.


#150

I wanted my harmony hub remote to be able to turn on and off the PS4. Turns out with this component and a couple automations on home assistant, everything works! This component is solid. Hope it is integrated with home assistant at some point.


#151

Quick question, I’m in the process of segregating my devices from my main LAN, and putting them on an IoT network. I have this going for most things, but if I put the PS4 on the IoT network (Hass is on the main LAN), this component stops working.

The main LAN is 192.168.1.x
The IoT LAN is 192.168.200.x

Configuration file:

media_player:
     - platform: ps4
        host: http://192.168.1.15:3031
        ps4_ip: 192.168.200.17

With the PS4 on the IoT Network, this component doesn’t work. If I put the PS4 back on the main LAN, it works fine.

Just wondering if this is limitation (or something that just hasn’t be considered) of this component or if it’s an issue at my end somewhere :slight_smile:

For reference, my setup is designed so that components on the main LAN can talk to the IoT network, but the IoT network can’t initiate a connection to the main LAN itself.


#152

the ps4 uses udp and have connections going both ways, and uses broadcast as well so I don’t think you will have any success in splitting it


#153

Yep fair enough, maybe I won’t worry about moving the PS4 :wink:

I do have all ubiquiti equipment which has some decent options around this stuff, but it’s probably not worth digging in.

Thanks :slight_smile:


#154

hi All,

I am using ps4-waker to successfully wake the device from sleep.
But some times due to power cuts the ps4 is switched off and when i am out of town i cant get it back to work.
Any way to boot the ps4 remotely?


#155

the ps4 does not support wakeonlan, so the only way to control it is when it’s in standby mode


#156

Could someone help me with this error?

Currently the component only detects if my ps4 is running or turned off. Games aren’t being detected and I also can’t start / stop the ps4.

When I start / stop the ps4, I get this error message in the log file:

Does someone of you know a solution to this?

Thanks :blush:


#157

Now getting:

Failed to call info: {“status”:“Could not detect any matching PS4 device”}

After upgrading to 0.65.6


#158

No-one else?

Restarted PS4Waker and now also get this in the logs:

Failed to call info: HTTPConnectionPool(host='192.168.1.15', port=3031): Max retries exceeded with url: /ps4/192.168.1.17/info (Caused by NewConnectionError('<urllib3.connection.HTTPConnection object at 0x705a3770>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 111] Connection refused',))

The IP’s are correct…


#159

There is one problem with the python implementation.
I am running home assistant on a raspberry pi which has multiple network adapters.
With ps4-waker you can define the ip of the adapter that should be used with the following option
--bind <ip-adress>
Otherwise the connection can not be established.

This option is not present in the python implementation yet, resulting in the following error:
[pyps4.ddp] failed to send data using socket, timed out


#160

Hey everyone.
Set this up as per the awesome instructions above (amazing, thanks!) and got it to turn on the PS4 as part of the instructions.
However, when I get to Hass.io it doesnt show the status of the PS4 and I can’t turn it on/off.

I just get this error in my log:
2018-04-04 00:30:26 ERROR (SyncWorker_0) [custom_components.media_player.ps4] Failed to call info: HTTPConnectionPool(host='192.168.1.x', port=3031): Max retries exceeded with url: /ps4/192.168.1.x/info (Caused by NewConnectionError('<urllib3.connection.HTTPConnection object at 0x6fea8030>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 111] Connection refused',))

Any ideas what I may have missed?


#161

No, I’m getting the same, somethings broken in the recent updates I think.


#162

Is there anyone around who knows how to fix this?
