Last time I tried implementing a driver for XBMC it was so slow that it just couldn't work.  I am happy to say that's no longer the case - not sure if it was the latest build of XBMC or the new XP8 firmware that did the trick.  Either way, i've got basic control working, just need to add some feedback before alpha testing can begin.

Got coverart feedback working today.  I got to say, it looks pretty neat on the K4 - album art appearing for each CD.

Sure is.  Currently uses the HTTP api.  Once JSON is moved to the public release we'll switch over as well.

PS. Love the avatar.

Had some time over Easter... updated the XBMC code to use the JSON interface.  So far i've just got play/pause working.

Should be fairly easy to add heaps more 1-way commands.  The feedback will take a bit more effort...

Hey Matt, do you need beta testers for this?

I will once it's at a usable stage.  Heading off to Cedia tomorrow, so can't even think about looking at this until next week.

Any news on the driver?
I have one XBMC script for my Pronto. I have now switched over to RTI, so I would be very nice to get a driver for XBMC. Cheesy

I'd be interested even just in an XBMC driver with one-way commands (although the two way would certainly be awesome). We build a lot of XBMC boxes for our clients and removing the need for IR receivers would be amazing. Do you have any update on your progress with the XBMC RTI driver?

I spent a few hours on this last night.  I'm coding against the Dharma (10.1) release... and it has some quirks.

For some reason they haven't implemented the navigation control code via JSON which means I need to implement both the JSON and HTTP protocols.  I assume at some point in the future they'll move everything over to JSON, but for now it's just a PITA!

Still, i'll push on.

Well on a whim i tried installing the bleeding edge release from last night... paydirt!  Turns out they've added support for navigation via the JSON interface Smiley

So i now have all the basic 1-way commands done.  Naviagation, volume control etc.

Currently working on getting it to tell me the current song that's playing...  stay tuned.

I now have 2-way feedback for volume and the current track playing.  So far it's only the "label" which usually looks something like "03.Artist - Track" which isn't optimal.

Looking for a way to extract artist/album/title/coverart...

It may simply be it hasn't been implemented yet in JSON.

Very Cool Matt! I'm excited to give your stuff a try and I'm even more excited about a future where I don't have to use USB IR receivers for the XBMC boxes we build.

Got a 2-way scrolling list to display the playlist today.  This thing is almost usable... for music at least.
