Oraid is there a way to use Google Home assistant to run on.sh or off.sh. My home theatre setup is controlled by a Google Mini and Harmony Hub. Id like to have my poster monitor turn on and off when I send my Watch a Movie command on my Mini. I've been trying to figure out a way using tasker or webhooks. Though maybe you'd have some insight.

BTW I was able to add your Movie Icon to add to homescreen shortcuts on both Android and Apple. Not sure if this is something you want to add to future versions. Was easy to add to the index.php plus a manifest file.

Thanks I'll take a look at this.
I got it working using Tasker on an extra Android phone I had kicking around. My Harmony actions are setup in Smart things and Google Home. I created a routine in Google Home that when my key word is used, it turns on the activity and sends me a notification.
Tasker sees the notification and runs the commands I program.
A. Turns on Display using HTTP
B. Switch's Movie Now to Kodi posters or Coming soon depending on my Harmony action. (I have setup Watch a Movie, Watch TV and Play Xbox)
C. Loads my Yatse Remote app on the phone if watch a movie is selected.
Etc etc.

Works good for me, but there is alot happening.

Wow, there IS a lot happening :D

I don't know if you can integrate HA with the Harmony Hub, I've seen the settings, but didn't played with it, I just read somewhere you have to flash another (Logitech beta Developers) Firmware to use the HA features.

I've just installed the HA Bridge on the Raspberry I use for the MovieNow (not the best Idea as long we have to reflash the sdcard for the updates, but so I can learn some linux stuff :)

The settings for the individual "devices" (you create a virtual device and it acts like a Philips hue lamp) are really simple and 0rid did a great job in making everything really open and simple to understand!

You just have to take care of the "Map Type (Legacy)" settings, I have to set it to HUE Device, so Alexa sees them and interacted Tham like a Lamp that you can turn on and off

And for the Actions I use Power On and Off -

ON:
http://192.168.1.21/settings/display.php?ON <-- Activates the Screen (its just the link you can click in the MovieNow settings)
http://192.168.1.21/settings/display.php?VIEW1 <-- and then switches to the KODI screen

OFF
http://192.168.1.21/settings/display.php?OFF <-- Deactivates the screen

In this setting I can say: Alexa, power up kodiposter, and the screen goes on and it is switched to the kodi screen

Here are my virtual devices:

Every device has the link to power the screen on as first action, and then switches to the screen I would like:

kodiposter to kodi and kodi now playing
filmposter to the "offline poster collection"
musikposter to something I work on ;)

If you like I can try to write or find a tutorial to install the HA bridge on the Raspberry :)
But its really easy, just take care that you start the server with another port than 80 (MovieNow uses port 80 already)
