First, set Chrome Launcher set to run this script on a 2 second delay:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
killall chrome
irexec -d
openbox


Create .lircrc in your home folder with these contents:

Code:
begin
prog = irexec
button = KEY_STOP
config = /home/xbmc/stopflix.sh
end

begin
prog = irexec
button = KEY_PAUSE
config = xdotool key space
end

begin
prog = irexec
button = KEY_PLAY
config = xdotool key space
end

begin
prog = irexec
button = KEY_OK
config = xdotool key space
end

begin
prog = irexec
button = KEY_FORWARD
config = xdotool key Right
end

begin
prog = irexec
button = KEY_REWIND
config = xdotool key Left
end

I suspect the button map will be similar for everyone, you can test that by running irw and pressing buttons on your remote.

My stopflix.sh script does this:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
killall chrome
killall openbox
killall chrome
killall irexec

The one feature I wish this Add-on has would be checking off content you've already watched - I can't even imagine how you'd implement that one...

If anyone knows if there is a keyboard shortcut to enable/disable subs in the Silverlight player that'd be useful..

Thanks! This was exactly what I was looking for. I have a full Ubuntu running with the window manager in the background so I ommitted the openbox lines. Hopefully that's not releated to the following...

The problem I'm having is with the play button. For some reason that knocks me out of silverlight and chrome and all the way back to XBMC in a windowed mode and then it will restart. Pause works perfectly every time. This doesn't make any send to me because the .lircrc has Play and Pause doing exactly the same thing. Any ideas?

I confirmed with irw that the play button is indeed sending KEY_PLAY. FF and RWD work fine (executing the Left and Right keys via xdotool. It's just Play that's odd.

A couple of more Netflix player window short cuts are here (in case it helps anyone):
