I want to realize something like an ambient light functionality depending on the category of the currently watched recording on mythfrontend.
What I need is a perl/python/bash script running on my raspberry pi which frequently requests the category of the running recording.
Can anyone help me to find the easiest api call to the mythfrontend (or backend)? What I tried:
- Code: Select all
which shows me the title and the category of the LiveTV on any encoder. But if I am watching a recording (not LiveTV) then it does not appear in the status xml stream.
Can I use the Frontend API somehow?
Thanks and best regards
