Hi all!

For the last couple of days I've sifting through the forums, the API documentation and the source code itself to send directional controls (left, right, up, down) from an addon. The best solution I found so far is the JSON RPC API, the Input.Up/Down/Left/Right methods in particular.

The reason for wanting to do this is full integration with my domotics system. Ideally I'd expose the navigation via MQTT, but I have not be able to find an existing addon for it so far. I am willing to write this myself but it feels somewhat awkward to use JSON RPC calls while the addon runs from within kodi itself.

Any support would be greatly appreciated!

Best regards,
Jasper
