Hi. Trying to turn on my TV, but this command doesn’t help samsungctl --host --port 55000 --method legacy --key KEY_POWERON

I’ve got

PS D:\User\.homeassistant\new\samsungctl> samsungctl --host --port 55000 --method legacy --name remoteCmd  --key KEY_POWERON
Available keys

Note: Key support depends on TV model.

    Power Keys
        KEY_POWERON:                        Power On

How can I wake it up? Using Windows 10.

TV Model - UE-32EH53001 TV firmware version - 002007

some TV’s support WOL (Wake On Lan) some do not.

OK the script has been updated. the MAC address is stored in the config file now. and can also be entered manually into the config when the config is initialized samsungctl.Config(mac=‘’). while I was at it I said to myself. let me add a little more work for me to do LOL, so I added detection of the method as well as the connection port. this process will only work if the TV is powered on when you initialize the Config class. so now the only needed thing to be passed is going to be the host (IP address) of the TV. This is going to be the best mechanism to use if you are going to save the config data. the call to loading the config data will bypass the detection process. the detection process will cause the library to take a few seconds longer to startup.

I am trying to come up with a better load process for the config class. one that is not going to require 2 different chunks of code to be written to start samsungctl.
