  4. This is the Release Candidate for our upcoming bugfix release v17.1 “Krypton” which contains our continuous effort to further improve the v17 release. Our team will certainly try to tackle as much of the reported problems as possible with the limited resources we have. We do want to note that since we are just a small team some of the reported bugs might not get fixed due to lack of developers or time. As such we would certainly welcome any developer who has the ability to help us out to try and fix the bugs he or she encounters and submit it to our code base for review. We sure would like to thank every one involved with either development, testing or simply helping out others with answering their questions. Fixes done in this release candidate: • Update Estuary and Estouchy with some bugfixes and improvements • Fix EDL skipping • Fix slow song smartplaylist • Several PVR fixes • Update Chorus webinterface • Fix addons not being marked broken when they are updated with broken flag • Add limiter on random songs which should prevent large memory usage on big libraries • Improve keyboard mapping during button mapping • Improve analog stick handling • Improve plugin performance when building the content list • Include RTMP inputstream add-on for Windows A full list can be found here What’s new? You can read up on all the v17 changes here: Kodi v17.0 “Krypton” Krypton nightly builds As you may have noticed we only release a new beta or release candidate once in a while that includes a list of fixes that were done since previous release. Additionally we also create these so called nightly builds specifically for Krypton that include the latest fixes that our developers have included and will end up in the next release candidate or final release. By providing these builds we hope that users who install these will help us confirm the problem was fixed or identify if we accidentally created a regression from previous builds made. These nightlies are safe to install on top of the Kodi v17 you already have installed on your device and can be found on the download page. Be sure to get these builds from the Krypton folder and not from any other. Conclusion Should you want to download and install this build please visit our download page. You can install these build just on top of your current Kodi installation without doing a reinstall or cleanup as we do a full migration if needed. • Official Kodi 17 development downloads Bug reports Please report any problems on our forum http://forum.kodi.tv and not on the release announcement as it is not a reporting or help section. Don’t forget we also have some official tablet/phone remote controls for both Android and iOS. You can find the links to them on the download page. Donations or getting involved Getting involved is quite easy. Simply take the plunge and start using these 17.0 Krypton builds. If you use these builds, we encourage you to report problems with these builds on our forum first and after that, if asked, submit bugs on Trac (following this guide: How to submit a bug report). Do note that we need detailed information so we can investigate the issue. We also appreciate providing support in our Forums where you can. You can of course also follow or help promote Kodi on all available social networks. Read more on the get involved page. We are always happy to receive a donation by which you show your support and appreciation, and t-shirts and Raspberry Pi cases may still be found on the sidebar for purchase. All donations and other income goes towards the XBMC foundation and are typically used for travel to attend conferences, any necessary paperwork and legal fees, purchasing necessary hardware and licenses for developers and hopefully the yearly XBMC Foundation Developers Conference.

  5. I know its been a while... but did this ever go anywhere? I am thinking of using Insteon switches in my theater and would love to be able to control them with CV.
  6. Hey Bill. So right now, it's a bit cumbersome. You'll have to manually move any trivia slides that you don't want to use into %CVROOT%\Trivia\_Exclude. CinemaVision will ignore slides in that directory. Once you've done that, you'll need to do a content update so CinemaVision picks up the changes. Our developer will be adding the ability to specify a Trivia directory shortly which will make what you're trying to do much easier, and much more user friendly. Barring any unforeseen issues, we should have a test version available in the next week that includes this change, as well as the ability to play a Sequence based on metadata like Genre, Director, Studio, Rating, Date Range, and more.
  7. Hey scott, I got a chance to play with this a little today. One thing that I cant figure out is the trivia slides. I have a few trivia slides that are Christmas themed and I want to use them in my Christmas sequence. How do I tell CV to use only the Christmas slides? I have a separate folder with Christmas bumpers and trivia. Is this possible? I don't want to use the default trivia location because it has everything else in it and I'm trying to isolate just the holiday stuff when I run the sequence. Thanks Bill
  8. Nice!!! Thank you.
  9. Of course. If you have any trouble, just reach out on the forums, in a support request, or if we're around hit us up in Chat and we'll do our best to help you out.
  10. Sure is, our developer started writing the code for this yesterday after we brainstormed the feature and how it should work. We want it to be as smart as possible so it requires little to no input from the user if there's a conflict, so we're also going to include a way to prioritize the Sequences. Say for example you have a Sequence built that runs if the Studio is Marvel, and another Sequence that will run if the Director is Jon Favreau. If you pick Iron Man as your Feature Presentation, both of those Sequences will trigger. We had to figure out how to address situations like that. Once we finish fleshing out this new feature, we'll add the ability to specify a directory for Trivia Slides. As for playing specific things during a specific season, that's something that we'll likely add in as well. It's on the list, and so is the ability to import/export these custom Sequence configurations so people can share them if they want to.
  11. Thanks for the quick reply. I think this makes sense. I will play with it later today. Also you were helping me on Tapatalk forum regarding my trivia slides issue. I got it figured out. thanks for your help bill
  12. Hey Bill! If you edit the Video Bumpers Module, you can change the Type to Directory and point it to a specific place. For example, you could create a new directory in your %CVROOT%\Video Bumpers\ called Christmas and store your Christmas bumpers there. You can even recreate the tree from Video Bumpers to separate out the different Christmas bumper types and point directly to those folders to play your Christmas bumpers at random. You can also specify a video file to play by setting the Type to Single File if you want to go that route. You can get as granular as you want without changing the default directory structure. You'll need to make sure that you update content so CinemaVision catalogs the new directories and files, and make sure to do it every time you add new content or remove old content. Does that make sense?
  13. It will if you point the modules in your Christmas Sequence directly to your Christmas bumpers instead of to a directory or using the default Video Bumper Types. I have a Christmas sequence that points to specific videos instead of randomly selecting videos from a directory. You could also create a directory for Christmas, and under it have your type directories. Then you would point each Video Bumper Module at the appropriate directory under your Christmas directory which would allow you to randomize the Christmas bumpers that were played. There are a few ways you can handle it. how do you point your modules directly to a different directory if the directory structure is set in the settings page. Wouldn't you be resetting the directory structure for all of CV then? Are you saying you can have a Christmas directory identical to the default directory with all the same folder structure? How does CV find that directory if its being refreshed after you start CV and then change to a themed sequence. You would have to refresh the directory after you pick your themed sequence wouldn't you? I think I'm hot on the trail in figuring this out. Bill
  14. Any new developments on this topic? I played around with CV when this first came out and took a bit of a break from it because of ... Life, i guess. Now I've had some time to fine tune it. Still love the product and am impressed on how far it has come. I am interested in having different sequences that play certain bumpers based on the season. Ex... play the Halloween pack during that time of year or a christmas theme (trivia, bumpers etc). I like the idea of playing only marvel, star wars, Disney trivia if you're about to watch a marvel, star wars or Disney movie. Is any of this possible now....or will it be soon? I thought I read early on when this project started that this would be a feature. Thanks Bill
  15. Earlier
  16. If anyone finds any Coke (or other) bumpers in good quality that would be good to include on the site, please let us know. Even if it's in decent quality, with your generosity we've been able to purchase tools that allow us to upgrade the quality, resolution and audio for most videos. If nobody posts HD quality versions of things, feel free to post up the best you all can find and we'll try to find time to re-render them.
  17. Enjoy!
  18. Has anybody been able to find the Coke Thirst bumper in more than stereo? I've been looking for a while, but the best I've found is a 720p stereo version I've linked below.
  19. Yep. Well done, guys
  20. Alright, what i was doing wrong was not to Update the library in the settings of CinemaVision. After i had updated the content its working now! Thanks a lot This is sooo much fun now
  21. I should have been more specific... The tag has to be in the filename of your movie, and the Atmos (or whatever) bumper has to be in the appropriate directory under %CVROOT%\Audio Format Bumpers. Once that's done, and your library is updated to reflect the changes to the name of the movie, update content in CinemaVision settings. Then you just need to drop the Audio Format Bumper Module in your Sequence and it should work with the default settings.
  22. Sadly it doesnt. It has Atmos in the Folder and Filename. No Audiobumper is played it goes directly to the main feature (movie). :-/
  23. The Element bumper hasn't been put on a demo disk just yet, and I haven't been able to find it up for download with the correct lossless Atmos audio track. The best I have been able to find is a copy in 1080p with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio. I'm not planning on putting Element up on the site until a lossless version with the correct audio is released. If you put Atmos, DTS-X, or Auro-3D in the file name, CinemaVision will recognize the tag and play the appropriate bumper. Once official support for those formats becomes avilable, we'll remove those tags and pull the actual audio format.
  24. Are you referring to the Atmos Shattered bumper when referring to the baseball?
  25. Hey guys, how do you get CinemaVision to read the proper Audio Format with Atmos? My files are tagged with .atmos. in the filename. The Atmos info is always on top of a specific audio format like TrueHD or DolbyDigital+ so how can i tell CinemaVison to play the Atmos bumper? Any help would be great! Thanks!
  26. No ETA just yet, as this feature is going to require us to write a new helper add-on, the CinemaVision Service Add-on. In the second round of development so far, our developer has been focusing on low-hanging fruit and additional functionality for trailers. I'll ask him about switching gears to get a test version of the new add-on working. It's definitely on the roadmap!
  27. Hell, they've made enough Saw movies you could use the title screens to create a countdown.
  28. mguebert many thanks this fix the Problem
  29. I was just searching for something similar. I wanted to start a movie on my Kodi box preceded by a Cinema Vision sequence. I was looking for REST/JSON commands that I could add to my home automation software, but if integrated with CV, that would work just as well. Is this still in the roadmap? Thanks
