Re: Tracking channel change

Ok, it took a while, but I implemented what I wanted. I integrated the TV with Home Assistant and do polling of TV channel state (channel name, number, etc) every 5 minutes. The beautiful thing is that I didn't have to worry about data storage and retrieval or presentation - Home Assistant does that by default. Here are details for those interested: viewtopic.php?f=79&t=11882

The problem might be accuracy, since Home Assistant does polling instead of getting triggers on channel change, but the polling frequency can be controlled from within Home Assistant if needed, so it's not such a big issue.

Thank you all!
