Any way to control the Samsung TV audio output from HomeKit?

Any way to control the Samsung TV audio output from HomeKit?

I mostly use the internal sound of my Q80T, which is not excellent, but good enough for most of the time, but for movies and music I tend to turn on the amplifier and stereo speakers. This can be done with a smart connector via HomeKit. What I want to achieve is to have a button or a Siri sound action that triggers 1) turning on the amplifier with HomeKit and 2) setting the sound output of the Samsung TV to the optical, to which the amplifier is connected. I know I have Homebridge installed and have found several plugins that allow me to control the TV from HomeKit, but there seems to be no way to control the sound output. Is there any way to do this on iOS?
