MYTH PROTO VERSION (Myth Protocol)
Command arguments: <client protocol version> <client protocol token>
List arguments: none
30 MYTH_PROTO_VERSION 62 78B5631E
If the version number and client token given matches the protocol version number spoken by the server, and the client token associated with this version, the command will succeed. Otherwise, the command will fail. This should always be the first command sent by a client when it connects to ensure that it will be understood by the server.
The client token is a simple randomly generated string, unique for each version of the protocol. Its purpose is to ensure that the client has been updated to support the version it claims to use; this makes it a bit harder for people to write "bad" MythTV client code which just tries to "guess" protocol versions, without updating the client code.
