Change "Kodi Plex Addon" Client name

sde91sde91 Posts: 17Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Hey guys,

Is there any way I can change the default name of the AddIn (Kodi Plex Addon) to anything custom?

The reason why I ask this, is because I use a Plex Channel (HelloHue) which triggers an Action (Turn Lights on / off) when a specific Client plays some Content. Currently any Kodi Client which runs the Plex Addon presents itself with the same name (Kodi Plex Addon), which will always turn on / off my lights.

Thank you!
