Hi,

thanks for this plugin. Using it for a bit now, but I have two major issues:

* Xbmc blanks the screen while chrome is playing. Is it possible to inhibit the screen saver while the addon is running?

* I tried to map lirc remote keypresses to some keyboard events to control the player window. This seems to work, however xbmc still accepts those keypresses too. Is it possible to change the browser invokation in xbmc to a blocking call, so xbmc wouldn't move around behind the scenes? Maybe that would solve the first issue too.

Other then that, I'm quite impressed how reliably it works. There's only a few hiccups when reaching the end of a list. I get a "script error" instead of a proper indication that I reached the end.

As I said, that's not the problem since everything's working fine when directly running chrome launcher (or launching just the script for that matter)

FYI, I have another computer (laptop) with the exact same settings and there it's not happening...(!) I even tried copying the NetfliXBMC default.py and script.sh files from the laptop to the HTPC system... no avail...

Thanks anyway, though

Hi Tinellus,
Did you got your system to work?
I have a similar issue (screen going black with no way to go back to XBMC).
But mine is strange: sometimes I won't have the issue when exiting Chrome and everything will be fine and sometime I will have this black screen. It might happen after closing Chrome twice, like it can happen after 10 times.
I am running XBMC 13.2 in openbox (Ubuntu 14.04) with the script. No issues at all using just chrome launcher.
This has to do with the latest update and switching to a newer version of Chrome and using HTML5. I never had an issue before.

If this is on a linux system you'll have to go to desktop and turn off screen saver and screen blanking. XBMC isn't the cause for it to go black. Also google lightson.sh. Its a script that runs to keep the system from going black when no keypresses are found.
