Since Cisco seems to have deleted the entire existence of the legacy Tandberg video codecs, I’ve been unable to find documentation on the classic API anywhere. Luckily, I still have access to a Tandberg 6000 MXP and can write down what help is offered within it.
These are the classic commands available on an MXP 6000 running software F7.0:

I'll continue to update this list with more commands and examples of responses as time allows.

No, you just have to Google it 🙂

Thank you for the link, David. While the MXP guide does show you which classic commands are available (on page 42) it doesn’t seem to provide any help on what those commands do or what arguments they accept.
