I have NAS+TVHeadend+DVB-C tuner, TV (CEC)+RPi2 OSMC+tvheadend client.
When I turn off the TV, KODI client continues to playback a channel or movie. How to do that after turning TV off playback was stopped and resumed after switching TV on ?
Thanks in advance.
Did you try using the Keymaps to make it so hitting the power button on the TV remote causes Kodi to play/pause? This will require CEC compatibility. I’m not certain if the TV would send the command though CEC while powering on/off, but it’s the best solution I can think of!
More info on keymaps here: http://kodi.wiki/view/Keymap
You can make your own keymap files manually (hard work) or you can use the keymap addon.
Edit: Alternatively, if the TV won’t send CEC commands during power on/off, you can set a useless button on the remote (like one of them red/green/yellow/blue buttons) to be the play/pause command. Perhaps this works better, because you can use one button for “stop” and another for “open window tvheadend” instead of only pausing.
My TV when turned off/on it sends this (from cec-cleint -s) :
TRAFFIC: [ 12331] >> 0f:36
DEBUG: [ 12331] >> TV (0) -> Broadcast (F): standby (36)
DEBUG: [ 12331] TV (0): power status changed from ‘on’ to ‘standby’

Сan I somehow intercept this command and use it in the bash script?
Why don’t you just use the built in CEC options that do what you need without any scripting ?
Got to Settings->System->Input Devices->Peripherals->CEC Adaptor
Enable the option Pause playback when switching to another Source - this will also pause playback when switching the TV off.
It’s dosnt work for LiveTV.
