    Shutdown scripts for OSMC
    The default SSH user name for OSMC is osmc, password osmc


    • Key in :
    • cd /etc
    • sudo nano irswitch.sh


    • Copy and paste the following text into the editor window
      #!/bin/bash
      # this is the GPIO pin receiving the shut-down signal
      GPIOpin1=14
      echo "$GPIOpin1" > /sys/class/gpio/export
      echo "in" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin1/direction
      while true; do
      sleep 1
      power=$(cat /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin1/value)
      if [ $power != 0 ]; then
      sudo systemctl stop mediacenter
      echo "out" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin1/direction
      echo "1" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin1/value
      sleep 3
      sudo shutdown -h now
      fi
      done
    • Press ctrl+x to exit, y to confirm, enter to save the file
    • Key in
      sudo chmod +x irswitch.sh
    • The above RemotePi Board shutdown script needs to be registered as a service, key in
      cd /etc/systemd/system
      sudo nano irswitch.service


    • Copy and paste the following text into the editor window
      [Unit]
      Description=RemotePi Service
      After=systemd-modules-load.service
      [Service]
      Type=simple
      ExecStart=/etc/irswitch.sh
      [Install]
      WantedBy=multi-user.target


    • Press ctrl+x to exit, y to confirm, enter to save the file
    • Key in
      sudo systemctl enable irswitch.service


    The following additional script enables the RemotePi Board to cut off the power, after OSMC has been shut down from the on-screen menu.


    • Key in
    • sudo nano /etc/shutdown.sh
    • Copy and paste the following contents
    • #!/bin/bash
      REBOOT_GREP=$(systemctl list-units --type=target | grep reboot)
      SHUTDOWN_GREP=$(systemctl list-units --type=target | grep shutdown)
      if [ "$SHUTDOWN_GREP" ] && [ ! "$REBOOT_GREP" ]; then
      # the condition above makes sure, that the shutdown sequence is not run on reboot
      GPIOpin=15
      GPIOpin1=14
      echo "$GPIOpin" > /sys/class/gpio/export
      echo "out" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin/direction
      echo "1" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin/value
      sleep 0.125
      echo "0" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin/value
      sleep 0.2
      echo "1" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin/value
      sleep 0.4
      echo "0" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin/value
      echo "$GPIOpin1" > /sys/class/gpio/export
      echo "out" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin1/direction
      echo "1" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin1/value
      sleep 4
      fi
    • Press ctrl+x to exit, y to confirm, enter to save the file
    • After saving the file, mark it as executable with
      sudo chmod +x /etc/shutdown.sh
    • Key in
    • sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/irswitch2.service


    • Copy and paste the following text into the editor window
      [Unit]
      Description=RemotePi Board Shutdown Service
      Before=multi-user.target
      Conflicts=shutdown.target
      [Service]
      ExecStart=/bin/true
      ExecStop=/etc/shutdown.sh
      Type=oneshot
      RemainAfterExit=yes
      [Install]
      WantedBy=multi-user.target
    • Press ctrl+x to exit, y to confirm, enter to save the file
    • Key in
      sudo systemctl enable irswitch2.service



    • Reboot one time


    • After reboot you can use the RemotePi Board to power cycle OSMC


    (thanks to Daniel G. for the OSMC shutdown by script, thanks to Pavol Kökörčin for helping with improvements to the above script)
    The above scripts have been tested and are confirmed to work with with OSMC version 20180109. Although not yet tested, they most likely will work with newer versions as well.
