thanks for this plugin. Using it for a bit now, but I have two major issues:

* Xbmc blanks the screen while chrome is playing. Is it possible to inhibit the screen saver while the addon is running?

* I tried to map lirc remote keypresses to some keyboard events to control the player window. This seems to work, however xbmc still accepts those keypresses too. Is it possible to change the browser invokation in xbmc to a blocking call, so xbmc wouldn't move around behind the scenes? Maybe that would solve the first issue too.

Other then that, I'm quite impressed how reliably it works. There's only a few hiccups when reaching the end of a list. I get a "script error" instead of a proper indication that I reached the end.

If this is on a linux system you'll have to go to desktop and turn off screen saver and screen blanking. XBMC isn't the cause for it to go black. Also google lightson.sh. Its a script that runs to keep the system from going black when no keypresses are found.

Well, there isn't any desktop running, I'm using xbmc standalone on a dedicated media box. It's really xbmc that blanks the screen. I know I could disable that in the xbmc settings, however I really want to use that feature as it'll burn in my plasma tv otherwise if I fall asleep while watching something. It really seems that xbmc launches the browser as a entirely disconnected process and doesn't know anything about it. Continues to process lirc keypresses in the background and blanking the screen/shutting down the pc on inactivity while instead it should be blocking until the browser window closes again.
