service.AutoResume
Latest version (0.7.4) updated to work with XBMC 13 Gotham.

Where to get latest version?
service.AutoResume at github


What does it do?
Intended for XBMC installations in cars, it will make XBMC remember what was playing and where it left off when power is abruptly cut off. When power is restored, XBMC will automatically resume where it left off.
If using with a RPi it's recommended that in the settings, you set the save folder to a location other than your SD card that it boots from. This will reduce the chances of writes to the SD card when power cuts off.

Other tips:
After about 2 years of heavy use the SD card running XBMC corrupted itself. I recommend periodically taking a backup of your SD card with Win32diskImager. If your SD card craps out you'll be able to create a new one from your disk image.

I've actually only tested Auto-resume on my RPi model B running OpenElec. I use it in my minivan. If you look at the code of the script, it might not be a significant change to alter it to do slideshows. You'd have to look at the xbmc docs to find out how to save the position of a slideshow and resume from there.

I'm using it with OpenElec 3.2.0. Pretty sure that's Frodo. Been using this in our minivan for about 7 months now.

FYI - to make it work with XBMC Gotham, you'll need to edit the addon.xml file to change the python version from "2.0" to "2.1.0". I'll get around to updating github soon.

Glad to hear people getting some use out of it.

I've updated github with the latest version (0.7.4) that works on XBMC 13 Gotham and handles some timing issues with starting up that I didn't have with Frodo.
