Write a Windows Phone app for WD TV Live box

I bought the WP7/WP8 app to control the WD TV Live box (the one by Steve Nesson) as there is no app for it from WD itself on Windows Phone platform. I find it difficult to use/less functionality available compared to the iPhone app released by WD and specifically does not have the volume control etc… I was wondering if there is documentation on writing an app for the WD device and if there is any information at all on it and if it is even a possibility for novice app developers like me to cook up a basic app with only functionality that I need for my own purposes?


I was looking for some info about it and I couldn’t get any…
