    OK - here's my initial thoughts on design after thinking about it for a few hours.

    step 1 - Work on Direct control from Google Home/Assistant.
    *** create Activities within Google Home directly and Google Home will integrate via MPExtended. Eventually making this an App for all to use for their installs.

    step 2 - maybe a MQTT plugin for MP1 that will also integrate with MPExtended or MP Directly to provide status updates back to HassIO on current MP Client activity and possible control for automations.

    Gonna be a long track but hopefully we get somewhere with it.....

    here is a question for the developers - to get MQTT working, I am looking at using the basic log file in debug mode to produce the events needed to allow notifications of the MP1 Status of where it currently lies.

    example:for titan extended

    movies main menu - [2018-12-16 22:51:32,827] [Log ] [MPMain ] [DEBUG] - Window: MediaPortal.Plugins.MovingPictures.MainUI.MovingPicturesGUI init
    home - [2018-12-16 22:53:56,091] [Log ] [MPMain ] [DEBUG] - Window: WindowPlugins.home.GUIBasicHome init
    TV Home - [2018-12-16 22:59:09,426] [Log ] [MPMain ] [DEBUG] - Window: TvPlugin.TVHome init
    tuuring tv on - [2018-12-16 22:59:09,524] [Log ] [MPMain ] [INFO ] - tv home init:TEN HD
    watching TV - [2018-12-16 22:59:12,902] [Log ] [MPMain ] [INFO ] - tv home init:TEN HD done
    change channel [2018-12-16 23:03:43,052] [Log ] [MPMain ] [INFO ] - Channel change:9HD Sydney
    in mini guide - [2018-12-16 23:11:37,924] [Log ] [MPMain ] [DEBUG] - WindowManager: route TvPlugin.TvFullScreen:602->TvPlugin.TvMiniGuide:3009
    mini guide cjange - TVHome.ViewChannelAndCheck(): View channel=7mate

    Now is this a big no-no since there seems to be no other way I am aware of Also what MP2, is there are way to to implement this without using the log files?

    I know I'm 'out there' but HomeSeer integrates with Google Home directly - a lot less fuss and interfacing to it is a LOT easier (and more secure than most IoT things) it's stupidly flexible. OK, it costs money but it really is worth it in my view. I have a fee Android app which allows you to control it (voice or typing/selecting)

    I freely admit I know zero about MQTT (or even IFTTT) but I've never needed it!

    Good luck!
