    Hi, I use AutoTools on android tv. I'm rooted (magisk) and there's no permission access handling happening like on my smartphone.
    So I have to give single permissions using terminal and pm grant.
    But for WRITE_SETTINGS permission this isn't working, I get above error.
    How can I give WRITE_SETTINGS permission using terminal?

    :( Can't we get any permission handling on android tv for all auto apps and tasker?
    Opening 3 dot menu in tasker and trying to grant the permissions results in a toast notification saying sth. like couldn't open a fitting app for this task.
    I'd like to choose the keyboard based on the apps I open. For some stuff on screen keyboard is really annoying since I have a bt keyboard for the typing. Null keyboard app is great but for some apps I'd like to have on screen keyboard.

    Having tasker and the autoapps fully working on android tv would be really awesome. I noticed that Join works great on android tv, there were even adjustments made on where the toast notification shows up :) awesome!

    Sorry, unfortunately I really don't think it's possible to get that specific part working!

    Hi again. I managed to get the permission :)
    In case you're interested and want/can implement sth. for android tv, here's the command that worked:
    appops set net.dinglisch.android.taskerm WRITE_SETTINGS allow

    ;)
