Linux My Budget Media Server...
#41
Ok.  I have just ordered 3 Google Home Minis in time for Christmas and I plan to be able to operate the basic functions of Kodi with them.  I have spent about a week experimenting with Home Assistant on a spare Raspberry Pi Model B and got nowhere.  Yesterday I tried this...

...using method B2, setting up a Node.js server on the Acer and running DuckDNS with a Cron job.  I have been testing it with my phone, on my Linux PC, it works really well and doesn't seem to have any affect on the performance of the server, but I have only tested it with two clients running simultaneously.  If it does affect performance then I will setup a Raspberry Pi Model B to run Node.js and DuckDNS.

I am going to spend some time today getting it to work on multiple Kodi clients, with multiple Google accounts.  Then I want it to work with CEC, which is going to be a bit of a task as I have never got CEC to work with my TV/AVR in the lounge, however it works perfectly with my Daughter's TV so I will start there.
HTPCs: RPI 2B & 3B+ running LibreELEC 9.x.x
Control: Google Home + Broadlink RM Mini 3 + OSMC Remote
Audio: Pioneer VSX-819HK & S-HS 100 5.1 Speakers
Server: Acer ASX3400, 3GB RAM, 7.75TB, Xubuntu 18.04, NFS, MySQL
