[Sidefx-houdini-list] Command-line render

I'm trying to automate some Houdini processing, and would like it to be 
outside of Houdini, and with a single button (in a host application, or 
a python\batch file).
I found that there are a couple of ways you can achieve this, and most 
people recommended using hbatch, but I couldn't find an example I could 
use in a script or a batch file.
Using the hbatch command in a command prompt window (I'm on windows 
btw), works great, and I managed to render a specific rop from a given 
hip file, but I'm still looking for a way to automate it..

I'm looking for something like:
hbatch render -f "myHipFile" -rop /out/myROP
But I could be way off..

Appreciate any help you can offer!
