Hi Nathan, thx for digging...
Yes, starting kodi is easy, but syntax didn't work this way for me (Windows 10), because of whitespaces in path - following syntax was successful:
os.open <square bracket><square bracket>"c:\\Program Files (x86)\\Kodi\\kodi.exe"<square bracket><square bracket>;
(having problems formatting)
But that's another topic. My last thought was "batch" should work with Tasker (but I don't have it), which gives me an additional possibility to get better looking shortcuts on the screen - the selection of possible icons for a widget in UR is really poor. I am surprised it didn't work for you, depending on the documentation and with the UR plugin for tasker I expected that it should run - what is your general experience with Tasker and UR?
I didn't tried including client action (Android) in the remote.lua on server side, I will have a look.
Any other ideas?
