Topic: Getting Content ID From Launchpad

Hello,

I am playing around with the Hello World example.  I have a TiVo with Launchpad installed and w/content playing.  Discovery works fine, but when I try to pull back the current content via:

http://flingo.tv/cid/content_id?guid=&l … e_guid>

I just get an empty {} instead of the content ID.  I have the same problem using the Launchpad web demo.  Does Launchpad not actually broadcast the current content that is playing?

Thanks.

The API is not supposed to work in this manner. It is not applicable to Launchpad. Can you point me to the document you are referring to ? We will try to update it accordingly.

Thanks!

It made no explicit reference to Launchpad, although I could see Launchpad devices when using the /discover endpoint.

The syncapps API applies to TVs or STBs that have our Automatic Content Recognition (ACR), i.e., video fingerprinting.

I should've been more clear about that in the documentation.  (Yes, I wrote the SyncApps web page and implemented the API).
