I found a workaround.

I had to create a virtual device first. And after that I had to map the ‘’ on’’ and the ‘’ off ‘’ buttons with event ( ex: publish custom topic: lgtv/set/launch com.itkey.plexclient )

Not sure it is the official way but it works.

Now I have almost full control of by lg B6 tv, without using the crappy harmony. I even have control of the tv with Alexa.

But I need to figure out how use the Sound tv as a dimmer ( I want to say to Alexa :set tv Sound to 25% etc.

And to completely remove the need of the harmony hub, I would like to be able to get sccès to my tv channels....but I do not see any way to do this since à have a cable box from my cable provider.
