        "name": "TV",
        "ip_adress": "XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX",
        "wol_adress": "wol://XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX",
        "startup_time": 15,
        "timeout": 5,
        "input_delay": 650,
        "api_version": 6,
        "api_port_no": 1925,
        "protocol": "http",
        "polling_interval": 30,
        "has_ambilight": true,
        "has_ambihue": true,
        "has_tv_channels": true,
        "ambi_poweroff": false,
        "ambi_poweron": false,
        "inputs": [
            {
                "name": "TV",
                "type": "TV",
                "position": 0
            },
            {
                "name": "Netflix",
                "type": "APP",
                "position": 0
            },
            {
                "name": "Youtube",
                "type": "APP",
                "position": -1
            },
            {
                "name": "DMAX",
                "type": "CHANNEL",
                "position": 34
            }
        ]
     }

The TV is registered as "External Accessory", it has to be added manually in Home app once. Just tap on "+" -> "Add new Device" -> "No code" and you should see your TV. The code is the same as the one your Homebridge uses.
