TV One and Apple HomePod

I just added an Apple HomePod and connected all of my lights, blinds, SONOS speakers and my LG TV. I can control everything using Siri. I can turn the TV on and off. 

Is there a way to add my TV One media server to Apple HomePod? My goal is to be able to change channels, access my DVR etc. using Siri voice commands.

Thanks,

Kyle

I know the Fios One is supposed to be compatible with Alexa and Google, not sure about the Apple Home pod. If it can run Google and Alexa devices, it should be able to work with the Fios boxes.

I may be searching for the Holy Grail. I’m trying to get everything on one system. So far Home comes closest.

I have Phillips Hue lights, Hunter Douglas PowerView shade, SONOS sound system, LG OLED TV and the FiOS TV ONE box. On Alexa each accessory type seems to have its own app which Alexa tries to cobble together. The one thing that Alexa does allow me to do is Change the channels on the TV ONE box.

The Home configuration is much more elegant in terms of setting up rooms, scenes etc. It also allows me to activate accessories  in the car etc. The one thing I can’t seem to do is control the TV ONE box. I have the TV HOME streaming service, which I might be able to control through Apple TV, but it’s a pretty ham fisted streaming service.

The search goes on…
