Hisense TV using VIDDA 7

Has anyone now successfully able to control their Hisense TV with Home Assistant. I have read various posts on the chat and it looks like something in VIDDA 6 prevented the original solution working. I have tried the work arounds but I cannot get RemoteNOW to connect to the TV. It locates it, just wont connect to it which is annoying.

I have connected it to Home Assistant via DLNA, however this doesn’t seem to work consistently and only has a few capabilities ( volume, on/off ).

I have had success in connecting Alexa Fire TV Cube to the television which is able to control channels, On/Off, Volume etc so I think there probably is a solution to use this as a bridge. My preference would be a Home Assistant direct solution though.
