Media control idea

I need to know if I am crazy in this idea i have.
I have kodi running on my shield in the livingroom, it is able to access my self hosted iptv i setup via ersatztv.
I can see the channels in home assistant via the kodi integration but it only shows what is currently playing in either a grid or a list.
I saw the recent post about the epg setup in home assistant someone did and was wondering if it would be possible to pull the xmltv and m3u files ersatztv generates and display those in an epg in home assistant that when tapped on a phone or tablet would call that channel on the kodi instance on the shield?
