This is an interface module for use with Kodi and URC’s Total Control platform. This version is for Total Control 2.0 only. It allows full control and navigation of on screen controls for Kodi media center. It has two way feedback and will display the title of the content on the UI. It also contains events for transport functions such as on pause and on play.
Available Device Events
- Transport Event – Trigger events based off changes in play status
Start by going into the Kodi settings and select Service Settings. From here click on Control and enable “Allow remote control via HTTP”. You can also set the port to be used here. I use 9090 to not conflict with other services running on the machine, but if its dedicated for Kodi you can leave it at 8080. Leave the password blank.
File > Import & Restart
This is a two way module that is packaged as a TCM file that needs to be imported in to the Accelerator software. When you click Import TCM FIle here you will need to change the Files of type to Total Control 1.0 Module Library (*.tcm). Then navigate to where you downloaded the Spin – Kodi.tcm file and choose it. After you have imported make sure you restart Accelerator in order to complete the installation.
Step 4. Add Other Devices > Confirm & Add
After you have restarted Accelerator go to step 4. and navigate to the module.
My > IP Database > AUX > SPIN >Kodi
When the module is selected make sure that the checkbox is checked in section 8 that says Spin – Kodi Main Functions. If not try reimporting and restart Accelerator. Once you are sure you have the checkbox checked. Click Add Selected Module to add the module to your tree.
Step 6. Network Setup
At Step 6. click on Non URC Device and fill in the IP address of the device hosting Kodi. Port will be setup in Kodi for http control. I suggest using 9090 if possible but each setup may be different.
Step 11. System Parameters
At Step 11. under Two Way Module Settings from the first drop downs choose the room that the module is located at in the tree and in the second drop down choose the weather module.
Next in the bottom right under System Parameter Information you will insert your BlackWire module license key where it say license=.
