I hadn't gotten that far yet. I still need to add code to grab the message and interpret it, then build the real reply. I don't want this port to be tied up for long because it is meant to allow handheld devices to request connections which will be fulfilled by other sockets on other ports. Once this socket receives a request, I merely want to ack it and close the connection. The TV will then build permanent TCP and UDP connections with the device using the info from the initial request. The 'daytime' code is just a placeholder.

Thanks for the tips! I have no doubt it's all in there, I just need to learn to use it. :D
