Can't execute command

See original GitHub issue

Hi. I’m trying to execute command samsungctl --host --port 8001 --method legacy KEY_CONTENTS but got an error

PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> samsungctl --host --port 8001 --method legacy KEY_CONTENTS
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "d:\program\python\python36\lib\", line 193, in _run_module_as_main
    "__main__", mod_spec)
  File "d:\program\python\python36\lib\", line 85, in _run_code
    exec(code, run_globals)
  File "d:\Program\Python\Python36\Scripts\samsungctl.exe\", line 9, in <module>
  File "d:\program\python\python36\lib\site-packages\samsungctl\", line 102, in main
    config = _read_config()
  File "d:\program\python\python36\lib\site-packages\samsungctl\", line 32, in _read_config
    directories.append(os.path.join(os.getenv("HOME"), ".config"))
  File "d:\program\python\python36\lib\", line 75, in join
    path = os.fspath(path)
TypeError: expected str, bytes or os.PathLike object, not NoneType


P.S. Also I can’t turn on TV when it’s off 😦

This isn’t my code…just trying to help. I would try the forked library which has added some wake on lan functionality which does work for my tv model.

Oh, I was using python script to WOL thru mac, not thru sending TV commands since most likely that will not work with my TV…

rboutotte@MacBook-Pro-2:~/samsungtv/samsungctl/samsungctl$ python
Enter IP address:
Found MAC: 38:01:95:54:53:13
Send WOL packet (Y/N)?Y

Problems are still here. This script asks only for IP adress, then shows an error abou get_macadress function and nothing happens. Nevermind. Thanks for your help!
