I have seen a few autoexec.py scripts that executes a python file which triggers the Tellstick when a movie is started/stopped/paused/resumed but all these require the user to change in a python file if they want to change anything. So i have written a addon that's split up in two parts, a program addon where you can select a scenario or browse your devices and turn them on/off or dim. The other part is a service addon that listens to player events and triggers the selected scenario when the player event is triggered.

If anyone else is using Switch King and Xbmc please try it out and report any bugs on Github!

I can't seem to get this to work 100%. Switch King works like a charm, and I have several other addons on XBMC that work without problems. The addon can connect to the Switch King server and I can control both devices and scenarios, but the automatic video play/stop is not working.

Any ideas?

Nice work. Thanks!

Is it also possible for you to add the data sources view from SK?

Best Regards

Nice, bought an tellstick duo last week ans have just started to play with it.

Is there any way to implement a time req option for example that it has to be after 19:00 for the plugin to be active?
Havent found an easy way to set time as a condition in SK
