I am definitely going to try this out - I happen to already have the same fan and just need the IR transmitter to control it so ordered the Iguana. I primarily use Plex on Shield as my media player, but I do have Kodi with the Plex addon installed. If I am understanding correctly, as long as I have the Kodi web interface enabled, this should still work using the Kodi setting in the fan controller app right? I'll try testing this out later tonight to see if its able to sync up like you mentioned without having the IR portion working.

Some movies would be quick, others like Star Wars took me about an hour, and I have not yet tested it live yet either.
Plus for huge triple A titles there might be a conglomeration of input from multiple people.
And the files I made are just my interpretation of where I feel the fans should turn on. Others might want the fans more or less.
How did you create the windtracks? Do you watch the movie at like 1.5x-2x and jot down scenes where it would be appropriate for the fan? It would be cool to have an app where you can preview the movie and have some simple buttons/workflow to tag the fan settings at specific timestamps and then export the windtrack. Maybe have an import function as well so that you can modify existing tracks easily for those who want to tweak the fan settings.
