So, new project time!
For ease of use (and to get a high WAF) I want to be able to control my home theater via voice, specifically via Siri (household is mainly Apple). My current setup is:
Panasonic Plasma (on used as a display, no aerial connected)
Rotel AMP (old 5.1 but love the sound)
Apple TV 4
Homebridge (Running on Windows 10)
Kodi (on a Pi)
I want to be able to do things like "Hey Siri, change the TV to Bravo" or "Hey Siri, turn on the TV and play TVNZ". Ideally I would like to use the Apsattv / MattH Freeview content I have running in Kodi. I have the TVNZ app on the Apple TV, but it's channel line is obviously limited and there are not enough apps to fill also the FTA content from Apsattv / MattH. I would prefer to utilise the Apple TV if possible.
So far I have tried to use the Kodi Homebridge add in with the Pi, but that doesn't work with Siri (at least I cannot get Siri to change channels, or do anything apart from change the volume).
I have Kodi running on the SmartVu but the thing is so damn slow it's annoying! And I don't know if (how?) I can hook it into Homebridge.
So, question is, what options do I have? I have considered getting a Harmony Elite and using that in Homebridge. Anyone tried this with Siri / homebridge?
Any other options I haven't considered?
