It would be really amazing if we could get some support for the GPIO ports on the raspberry pi. The ability to trigger contact closures or get sensor inputs would put the software way ahead of the game as far as competition goes.

Hi Brian, we hear you! There are so many opportunities it really is hard not being able to get to them all. Our dev schedule is booked solid, but this is one of the reasons we believe in open source. It provides the Rise Vision Community the ability to extend what we have built and make it better! I encourage you to check out the Player source code in the Github repo here, https://github.com/Rise-Vision/player-native. If you have any questions please let us know. 

Thanks! We appreciate your support.

I was just wondering this too. I was thinking a way to control the TV its connected too and have it power off when theres nothing to display? Or have the Pi and TV shutdown if the hall lights are turned off using relays.

I've got infrared-based control of the attached TV working on a Rpi2 using lirc with the gpio pins.  Setup isn't too tricky.
