    My base os is RetroPie. I am set up with an external grabber. I have a Flirc USB plugged in and use an old led remote to set colors, start/stop hyperion, swap camera from day/night mode, start/exit emulation station. I would like to come up with a way to swap from external to internal grabber from my remote. Either by command or script preferably.

    Can hyperion capture internally when configured to use an external grabber?

    If not then, Is there a command for hyperion-remote that could swap grabber?

    Or, Will I have to use a script to swap configuration files, stop and start hyperion?

    I know I could loop the Pi's HDMI output through the splitter , but then I'd need a 2 input splitter and a way to swap those inputs, which complicates things.
