    ive posted the 1st cut of a perl script which connects to lirc to listen for remote control key presses and then drives Hyperion to set colours and change brightness.

    Has anyone tried this ?

    Is there interest in building this into hyperiond ?

    I like the idea, but i am not sure if this may better placed in a Kodi addon (This is no solution for non kodi users i know) which sends the execution you like via json.
    If i have a look at the overall download statistics, not sure if the usecase is really (often)given inside hyperiond.

    OT: It is time to restructure Hyperion to split it up between extensions and core. To get as much extension as possible without to bloat up the core more and more :)

    Imagine if you could write extensions in Python.

    We can almost do it now if you call them effects !

    Well, for everyone that uses hyperion with multiple hdmi sources and runs kodi for example on a htpc, this could be useful. Also this way you can launch effects without running kodi, for ambient lighting purposes. That is the main reason I still run kodi on my pi, since it handles the keypresses and launches hyperion or effects etc.

    Thanks a lot. I use it with a cheap Chinese windows media center remote :)
