Chowmain - Kodi Lite (XBMC) Driver for Control4

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Since the latest update the only bug is that the shutdown on power off doesn't work. I have been using the shutdown and WOL function.  Not a big one but if I dont do regular shutdowns I seem to have regular crashes of my Kodi VMs.

Thanks

Your dealer will need to capture this in some logs and send it to us for troubleshooting.  Best through the driverCentral ticketing system as that is manned by not just me but another 3 staff.

A really neat feature would be to have the "connected" status as a variable true/ false.

Sometimes I change the video device away from Kodi and after a while the Kodi HTPC shuts down. Then when I turn off the room Control4 doesn't send the command to turn "off" (which I send via a timer give the HTPC time to change the resolution back to standard,) and when I later turn the Kodi HTPC back on again it immediately shuts down because the command from last time is received.  Via such a variable I could program Control4 only to shut down the HTPC if it is still connected.

Our Kodi driver automates startup (via WOL) and shutdown (via Kodi's Shutdown API) of the driver on POWER ON and POWER OFF.  I strongly suggest you utilise that as it is designed to handle the power management of the device.  You should not program your Kodi HTPC to shut down at any other time as this will cause problems.
