Does anyone know if there is a way to use the DMX triggers from Artemis to trigger a hotkey, not necessarily in game related. Specifically inwouldnlike to trigger a hotkey that would interact with OBS for streaming.

I don't know specifically what you have in mind, but I do something very similar with my controls. If the Helm controller sees that impulse is supposed to be in reverse and clearly has DMX cues from Artemis that the ship is not in reverse, it will hit ESC (and visa-versa). The required code is to read the DMX stream and interpret the game states. I'm sure there are all-software solutions out there, but the above approach has worked for me.

I have not done it but I have researched interpreting DMX commands on a raspberry Pi and you should be able to send a signal to the pi as a dmx device and use a crosswalk to send a keystroke out the USB or latch a relay to pass a signal to a hacked USB keyboard. There are arduinos which act as keyboards but I don't know if you can get it to read the DMX signals.

You can read DMX cues from a socket if you have Artemis Bridge Tools installed (see instructions here).   And you can trigger keystrokes using APIs like SendKeys or scripts like shown here.  So it would be possible write a program or script to so what you're suggesting.  Of course the more automated things are, the father you are from the social experience that Artemis was designed to facilitate.
