Samsung TV plugin to control and read the TV

I’d really like to add a plugin for Samsung Smart TVs. I’ve looked at the Samsung SDK and APIs, but right now it appears to be beyond my skill level. Perhaps that’s true of others, since a Samsung plugin is missing, but I hope not.

I can control my TV via its IP, but I can’t read it, which is what I would like to do.

Thanks in advance, if anyone is able to do this.
