Eggplant Functional is commonly used to test on desktop, Android, and iOS systems under test (SUTs), but it can also automate a variety of other devices, with different connection methods. Video gaming systems and other set-top boxes and Windows phones are some of the other types of SUTs you can test.
Using a KVM-over-IP Device: A KVM-over-IP device provides a hardware-based VNC server solution for automating your SUT using Eggplant Functional.
Testing Set-Top Boxes: Use video capture devices combined with Eggplant Functional to test set-top boxes.
- Controlling Set-Top Boxes with LIRC: Some set-top boxes can be tested using the open-source Linux Infrared Remote Control, or LIRC.
- Testing Remote Set-Top Boxes over the Internet with Slingbox: Set-top boxes can be difficult to automate because of their closed nature. A Slingbox is a type of set-top box that connects to any other video-output device and streams the signal to your desktop in real time over a network connection.
