I still use Kodi (with the Emby add-on) on a few TVs because it supports displaying notifications that are sent to its API. So for instance, I can call the Kodi JSON API endpoint with a message like: "Motion detected at the front door" "Spa temperature is 103 degrees" "New text message from John Smith" Then the message is displayed as an overlay on whatever content I'm watching (or just at the top of the screen if no media is playing). I'm able to specify a title and duration for the notification as well. In the case of Emby, I would also want to specify if the alert should be broadcast to (a) all connected devices, or ( to all devices logged in with certain USERS I'm happy to provide screenshots for how the alerts display in Kodi if that would be helpful. Any idea if something like this has been considered before or is on the roadmap? It really is the only feature that keeps me using Kodi (with Emby plugin) on my TVs instead of just using Emby directly.
