   {
    ...
    "wol_url": "wol://18:8e:d5:a2:8c:66"
    ...
   }
]

Application launch option for Android TVs

"accessories": [
   {
    ...
    "inputs": [
        { "name": "TV Mode" },
        { "name": "Youtube",
            "launch": {
                "intent": {
                    "component": {
                        "packageName": "com.google.android.youtube.tv",
                        "className": "com.google.android.apps.youtube.tv.activity.ShellActivity"
                    },
                    "action": "android.intent.action.MAIN"
                }
            }
        },
        { "name": "Netflix",
            "launch": {
                "intent": {
                    "component": {
                        "packageName": "com.netflix.ninja",
                        "className": "com.netflix.ninja.MainActivity"
                    },
                    "action": "android.intent.action.MAIN"
                }
            }
        },
      ]
   }
]

The: { "name": "TV Mode" } input default launch is "Watch Tv" command.

Credentials for 2016 (and newer?) models with Android TV

As per this project the Android TV 2016 models Philips use an authenticated HTTPS JointSpace API version 6. Every control- or status-call needs digest authentification which contains of a pre generated username and password. You have to do this once for your TV. We reccomend to use the python script philips_android_tv.

Here is an example pairing call for philips_android_tv :

python ./philips.py --host 192.168.0.12 pair

You can then add username and password key in your homebridge config, example:

"accessories": [
  {
    "accessory": "PhilipsTV",
    ...
    "username": "5l6n66UK7PYBVKAU",
    "password": "de8d0d1911a6d3662540114e1b3a5f29a473cc413bf6b38afb97820facdcb1fb",
  }
]
