I just tried device.openapp("com.imdb.mobile") as an example - nothing happened. Generally actions in remote.lua for the client like device.toast("...") or device.keyboard() are working. When I inspect server log:
"attempt to call field 'OpenApp' (a nil value)"
Is it true (according to first post) that OpenApp is implemented? I also didn't see anything in the documentation...
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?
Hello, unified remote is awesome, and I am right now programming some custom remotes for my htpc. One thing I am interested in: I am running kodi on the htpc and using yatse on the android tablet as a specific remote. I would like to have a custom button, which will trigger two actions:
- start kodi on the htpc (windows)
- open yatse on the tablet
Sure, I could do that with two buttons, but it would be more ergonomic to organize it in one step. I couldn`t find any existing feature for that - do you think this can be done?
Thx & cheers,
