Question  how to autostart an addon ? (rom collection browser) [SOLVED]
Post: #1
hello,
I would like to know how you can start Rom Collection Browser Addon for XBMC at startup
the goal is to make a mamecab, an arcade without needing a keyboard or mouse.

stick an autoexec.py in your userdata folder with this in it

Code:
import xbmc
xbmc.executeBuiltin('RunAddon(script.games.rom.collection.browser)')

Honestly, there are SO many better frontends for arcade emulation if you're trying to make a dedicated cab. I've used Maximus arcade, GameEX, Mala, Mamewah, Atomic FE and more. Hyperspin is the prettiest, GameEX and Maximus are the easiest, Mala/Mamewah and Atomic FE all have the best customization options but could be a steep learing curve.

Head over to Hyperspin-fe.com and check it out, definitely the best out there

I tried, but it does not work here's the error message:

ok, the right code :
Code:
import xbmc
xbmc.executebuiltin('RunAddon(script.games.rom.collection.browser)')

Two questions:
Will this also work on the WoL add-on?
If so, does it apply to all platforms?

A little background:
I intend to build a green(ish) SMB Server & MythTV Backend that suspends itself when idle. But I can't figure out a multi-platform solution to automatically wake it up when its needed. I'd like to implement this solution for Windows, Linux (Kubuntu 12.04), XBMCbuntu, and possibly RaspBMC in the future.

3 x OpenELEC 4.06 on Rasberry Pi
2 x XBMC 13.1 Gotham on *buntu Precise
2 x XBMC 13.1 Gotham on *buntu Trusty
1 x XBMC 13.1 Gotham on Windows 7
3 x XBMC 12.2 Frodo on Android Mobile Devices

Hi all,

I am trying to run an add-on "FilmOn" at start-up using Raspbmc, is there any way to do this at all? And if it is not too much asking would it be possible to have the UK TV as a favourite to run at start-up too please, or can I create a menu to do so.

Cheers

Siafix
