I have been working on the samsungctl library. I only have 2 things I am having an issue with. And that is powering the TV back on. And getting application content to play.

It supports all Samsung TVs from 2011 to current. Including the H and J TVs and also the newest ssl
Connections.

Yes, been watching that as I'm now trialling Home Assistant to hopefully get rid of smartthings and saw link to it from HA's forums

Will you make a new plugin for EG once its all working ?

Thanks

Oh yeah. I am using the people over at Home Assistant as the guinea pigs to get the thing running right. there are a lot more people using the Samsung TV over there. Because of the short comings of Home Assistant it will not support all of the features that can be done with the TV like EG will be able to. But all of the tests check out for those features so we should be fine once i Alter the plugin for EG. Most of the work is already done there also. I really only have to plop the library into place in the EG plugin and make some minor changes to allow the discovery to work and for saving the config information.

I am also going to make the EG plugin work with the CEC+ plugin if it is installed. and if it is not and you have a cec adapter connected I will make it so it can use the CEC adapter. having the CEC adapter will take care of not being able to directly change the sources on the 2016+ TV's. and it will speed up the powering off and on process.
