A bit late to this, but I'd like to see this as well. I run kodi on linux, with a plugin to watch netflix. Currently the only way to watch netflix on linux is via the browser (chrome) due to the drm. So the plugin (flix2kodi) handles the login and meta data display etc, and then use a fullscreen chrome to play the videos. Here's the problem: since flirc acts as a keyboard, the browser will (of course) hog all keyboard input when running. That means all the fancy kodi remote key mapping is mostly useless. If the option to use Flirc as a lirc device would exist, this problem would be possible to work around.
