    Hi.
    I am trying the alpha of Hyperion-Control for Kodi v0.0.3 I haven't had any noticeable problems. However I was wondering if support for multiple instances cold be added?

    I ask because I'm playing with remote strips, running on a wemos mini. And the Idle effect only seems to only works for the main instance and not others running on the same machine.

    Thanks for Hyperion!

    Hello @Akriss ,

    a support for multiple instances is not planned, yet. I should note that i currently rework a lot of stuff to remove the need of multiple instances on the same system. On different systems a forward of the command is still required. As a second choice the 'watch kodi' stuff will come back as a optional part of Hyperion.

    I apologize for the current "quirks"

    That has me wanting to ask a question or two. =)

    I have been creating another init script to start other instances with Hyperion.NG. Is this not the official way to start another instance?

    After reading this ( https://github.com/hyperion-project/hyperion.ng/issues/55#issue-162332285 ) leads me to believe there is other ways of starting other instances? perhaps within the hyperion config?

    Thanks for your work.
