    [Feature Request] Device for Screen/Menu currently showing

    I ran into an issue while using the plugin that forces me to ask for this additional feature.

    Situation is that I want to setup events to control the lighting depending on specific cases:

    1. Lights on/dim when video is On Screen but Paused or Stopped
    2. Lights off, when video is Playing

    This issue is that when Kodi is no longer on the Video playback screen (or event when Kodi is closed) the Status device shows "Stopped"

    So... you guessed it, #1 above triggers and the lights turn On. Even if no one is in the room.

    The most flexible solution (which also adds additional value in other ways) is a separate device that tracks the Menu/Screen Kodi is currently on.
