Finally, your “Movie Time” can now turn on the TV and switch it to specific input 😍

Oh my. I wonder if this will work via CEC HDMI to turn in my TV connected to the Apple TV.

It supports inputs? So then that can be exposed by the accessory?

Will this work only with the new TVs that support HomeKit? I have a Philips TV that has some kind of APIs to control it but turning it on is unavailable :(

You can write a homebridge plugin to bridge HomeKit commands to Philips’ API ;)

I did that but the power command is unavailable, it doesn’t support it for some reason. So I can just turn it off or change volume and etc.

Quick question, how are you implementing it? Where or how are you putting/passing the code? Is it an addendum to code else where? Newish to this and wanting to learn more, but also wanting to implement it myself.

If you have experience with node.js, you can use this as a reference and wire up to your TV.

Is there an LG accessory plug in published that uses the new rev profile?

I think the developer of homebridge-webos-tv is working on updating it to support this.

Oh man, this would be awesome. I wonder if it would work with old LG google TV's? There was an iOS remote app for it.

There is nothing on the technical side preventing people from doing that, although I think it’s unlikely someone is going to write a conversion layer for that specific TV since most of LG TV are running webOS now.
