I have created a crestron module that registers itself as an event client, allows navigation through the database, displays coverart/thumbnails and displays meta data. It is somewhat rough and I have stopped working on it in as I plan o do a json version (not very much time at the moment for that however). The thumbnail support requires a SVN version Camelot release will not work.

Movies and TV works, Music is incomplete.

Attached are some images. If interested I can send it on.

I have written two new modules: XBMC.usp and XBMC-ES.usp to partially implement the new JSON interface in Crestron programs. Why 2 modules? I found that a lot of simple commands (Up/Down/Left/Right) are not supported by JSON at present so I use the EventServer api for those.

XBMC is a JSON-aware module than returns metadata strings about the currently playing track (Artist/Album/Title etc. ) for Music and Movies. It also implements some of the simpler JSON functions (JumpFwd, JumpBack, Restart/Shutdown/Update library etc.). It doesn't have a browse/search facility at present.

XBMC-ES uses the XBMC event server api to send transport commands and also some built-in commands. It fully implements the api, so adding additional functions is straightforward.

Still to do:
1. Browse/search facility for music, movies etc.
2. TV show metadata
3. Properly queue JSON requests before sending them to xbmc

I included a project module (XBMC.umc) to demonstrate how the 2 modules are linked together.

You can find a zip archive of the modules at http://www.neilcarthy.com/files/XBMC-JSON.zip

Glad you like it. Latest version now hosted at: http://code.google.com/p/xbmc-crestron/

The download file now includes a sample SIMPL program and thedroid's touchpanel project.

It's definitely a beta thing so let me know if you find any 'features'!
