    Philips hue

    Hello everyone. How is everyone doing in here? I just upgraded my Hue Light system with a light strip. Now i created a new group only for that light strip. But I am having dificulties only putting that light on. No matter what i fill in the <hue-light-group>. It always putts on all the lights. Here an overview of the two groups { "1": { "name": "Cinema", "lights": [ "5", "6", "7" ], "type": "Room", "state": { "all_on": false, "any_on": false }, "recycle": false, "class": "Recreation", "action": { "on": false, "bri": 254, "hue": 14957, "sat": 254, "effect": "none", "xy": [ 0.5196, 0.4365 ], "ct": 484, "alert": "select", "colormode": "hs" } }, "2": { "name": "Screen Light", "lights": [ "8" ], "type": "Room", "state": { "all_on": false, "any_on": false }, "recycle": false, "class": "Hallway", "action": { "on": false, "bri": 254, "hue": 14957, "sat": 254, "effect": "none", "xy": [ 0.3868, 0.5371 ], "ct": 258, "alert": "select", "colormode": "hs" } } }
  3. Well, the thing is we don't really have a rating bumper before the movies in theaters, but we do have bumpers before trailers. These can be seen in this playlist I found here: The first 6 videos represent what we see in theaters, from G, PG, M, MA, R and CTC, which is more common than the rest. This is the closest thing we have to ratings bumpers in theaters, however I noticed in this same playlist other custom bumpers someone had made for their own home theater. Happy to have a go at making my own little bumper in photoshop but it's just the backend stuff in terms of adding the ratings to CV that i'm not too sure on how to do, wasn't too sure what to do with the values in the rating xml, but hopefully you get a good idea of what the OFLC looks like with these 6 videos

  5. We're actually pretty modular when it comes to ratings. We associate a foreign rating system with MPAA using an XML file that tells CinemaVision how to behave. This is the XML for the British BBFC ratings: <system name="BBFC"> <region>GB</region> <rating value="185">R18</rating> <rating value="180">18</rating> <rating value="150">15</rating> <rating value="125">12</rating> <rating value="120">12A</rating> <rating value="80">PG</rating> <rating value="0">U</rating> <rating value="0">Uc</rating> </system> It should be pretty easy for us to add in the Australian rating system. The biggest downfall we have is coming up with ratings videos. Do you happen to have examples of what you all see in theaters? If you do, I'll put together some ratings cards and we'll get the format added. If you have 1080p full resolution videos of the bumpers, that's even better.

    Intermission

    It's still on the list, and pretty high up the list, but we have to build that framework into the CinemaVision Service add-on so the Kodi team allows us into the repository. The CinemaVision Service add-on is currently available as a development release, but that feature hasn't yet made it in. Right now, it does scheduling. The next two features to add are making CinemaVision the default play option in Kodi and dynamic intermissions.

    Dolby Atmos Help

    Currently, For Atmos, DTS:X and Auro-3D they do. Everything else automatically passes through if you have your AVR and Kodi configured for the audio format. Once Kodi supports the newest audio formats, we'll drop the filename tagging and just use detection like we do with the other audio formats.

    TMDB Trailer German

    Sorry for the late reply! We have planned support for adding a language setting to the new TMDb Scraper, but I wanted to get some folks testing it out and get feedback right out of the gate. Very glad you like the scraper, and glad you figured out where the setting was! Keep me posted on your experience with the new scraper.

    Intermission

    Hi, it's been now almost 3 years later. Is there an update on this feature?

    Dolby Atmos Help

    Hi, do filenames still need to have the name of the audio format in them in order for it to be recognized automatically? If so, would there be a future enhancement to get that metadata from somewhere else than the filename?

    TMDB Trailer German

    Hello, I run the new cinemavision Ad-On Development Release 1.1.1a8 with TMDB Trailer and it works great. A fluid playback without buffering. Great. Thank you. My question is: Is it possible to switch the TMDB trailer scraper to german language? And how can I do it.

    I would start at the configuration guide. Should answer a lot of your questions and get you up and going before you really jump into customizing your sequences.

    Custom Ratings

    Was this ever added to CinemaVision? I've been looking for a way to add OFLC ratings to CinemaVision but I haven't figured out how to enable them

    I’m new here and need serious help!

    Made the pre-roll way simpler. Any suggestions?
  19. Hello, this is my absolute first time hearing about CinemaVision as I am new here! I am currently setting up a movie room in my upstairs bonus room and I would absolutely love to use this add-on to Kodi on my Firestick. Here’s the thing: I’m not quite sure where to start! I guess I’ll start by saying this: This is what I’d love to have to roll before the movie: If anyone could help me, that would be absolutely incredible! Thank you so much
  20. As someone who's gone through and changed just about everything in their Kodi library to support the Australian Classification System, it's pretty upsetting to find out that CinemaVision only supports a handful of rating systems. I'm sure i'm not the only one who'd like support for the Australian Rating system, to make their experience much better if they live in Australia like I do. For those who don't know, the Australian Rating system is as follows: AU:G AU:PG AU:M AU:MA15 AU:R18 AU:X18 I've gone through skins I have downloaded and managed to modify the Variables.xml to allow for the AU system, and this is typically as simple as changing Australia to AU, and changing the 'IsEqual' to 'Contains' for R18 and MA15, as they both have a + symbol that Kodi doesn't seem to like. I'm more than a little confused as to how I'd even go about editing CinemaVision to have this support though. With the support, we'd be able to have our own custom bumpers that match our Classification System. Not to mention, I feel like this is also why whenever I set the Trailers to match the feature, the trailers are suddenly skipped, because my movies aren't matching the 'MPAA:' rating that CinemaVision is expecting. Some movies are rated one thing here and another thing in the US, so a film that's been rated PG-13 in the US (to which our equivalent is M) might just be rated PG here. So it's not as simple as changing the images to look like Australia ratings when in reality CV is reading it as the MPAA rating. Thanks for taking the time read, and hopefully we can get some traction going on this!
  21. We hereby present you the third and last alpha build of Kodi v18 as we are going forward entering beta stage. This release is a continuation of the previous two with our continous focus on solving bugs and usability problems. So far it has proved to be quite solid to use as a daily driver for those who were brave enough to try it out. Of course you should still keep in mind it's not a final release yet and that on any upgrade a small glitch could happen as we are still doing rework. Once you decide to give it a try it is highly recommended that you create a backup first. Currently included A full changelog is nearly impossible to create and in this release article we will only cover the basics. For a more extensive list you can visit our wiki page v18 (Leia) changelog which will be update along the way. This third alpha release contain no big new features as we are focus on bugfixing only. Make sure to also go through our news sections which contain all past announcements regarding the Leia release and some highlights of what it will contain. Stability and usability is key In general the whole stability has been improved quite a lot. The times you still get glitches or occasional crashes haven been reduced due to just ripping out not so well coded parts and replaced with a more structured design and standard. Not that the old code was bad however over time new insights were gained and having newer code standards just make it better. Untangling all parts or components and make them behave better next to each other has been one of the biggest efforts done so far. Current available skins Due to changes in how Kodi works skins need to be updated for each release. As of this moment we have the following ones have been update by their developers and are readily available from our repository. Adnoic, Aeon Nox 5, Andromeda, Black Glass Nova, Chroma, Confluence, fTV, Grid, Mimic, Nebula, Omni, Rapier, Sio2, Xperience1080 More will follow at a later point in time when we approach final release. The story continues Although we don’t really have a clear future plan or clear cut goals (except making a great media center) we would welcome any developer who wants to spend time on getting Kodi better in every way. Either improving the core code to newer standards, fixing bugs or implementing a new feature we haven’t thought of. Compared to years ago the code has become better to understand and follow for newcomers to get started. Once we get something written down of certain to reach goals we will certainly share them. A great improvement has been made on the documentation that explains how to compile and work on the core code for Kodi. We highly recommend to read the article Kodi's GitHub codebase new face and better documentation. Release time You might also wonder when we will actually release this as a final version? Currently we don't really have a set time however it should at least be somewhere this year so. There's still enough room left for improvements however we could change our minds at any point in time and just call it ready enough to start the release cycle. In short we can't say or promise anything. For now we will start doing the Alpa release on a regular bases to bring further balance to the force. That’s about it for now and we’ll go back at improving this upcoming v18 release. Should you wish to give it a try a new version is readily available each day as well as nightly version. We can certainly recommend trying it out however take in mind that it’s not fully production and living room ready yet (take a backup). So far a guestimate of several tens of thousands users already use it so it can’t be that bad can it. You can get it from the download page clicking on the platform of choice and hitting the “pre release” tab. For Android and Windows we have an easy to use download add-on which you can find in our repository. Go to the Official download page and choose the platform of choice and you will find these builds under the pre release tab. If you do appreciate our work feel free to give a small donation so we can continue our effort. Just find the big "Donate" button at the top of the website. May the force be with you…..

    Where Do "Now Playing" Files Go?

    He's actually right on the money. While there's not a pre-defined directory for them, I tend to create a Coming Soon and Now Playing directory under the default Trailers video bumpers directory and set the Source in the Trailers Module to one of those directories depending on what I'd like CinemaVision to play. In my Sequence, I tend to have both a Coming Soon Trailers Module that plays trailers for newer movies from a streaming source, and a Now Playing Trailers Module that plays trailers for things in my library. As for Preshow Entertainment videos, I usually just put those in the default Trivia Intros directory.

    Trailer / Feature not working

    Sorry for not being around to answer this for you. You did exactly what you should do. We're going to be expanding the functionality of locally stored trailers in the future. Right now, you lose out on some of the features that select your trailer based on rating or genre. We'll also be adding download options in the future.
  27. Hey there! This is a feature we'll be adding to the CinemaVision Service add-on soon. Originally, we'd planned to add it in to the main add-on, but the Kodi team asked us to split that function out into a Service add-on. It was a requirement to get CinemaVision added to the official Kodi repository. There's not a clean way to do it manually, unfortunately. I expect the CinemaVision Service add-on to be release with CinemaVision 1.1.1 in the coming weeks.

    Cinemavision Service Not in Repo

    Hey there! You'll find the CinemaVision Service addon available only on this site, for now. We haven't yet packed in some of the features we want to see at launch, so we haven't pushed it to the official Kodi repository just yet. I might've updated that guide prematurely, and have been a bit side-tracked with the family medical stuff I've been prioritizing over CinemaVision. I'm hoping we can finish up one more major feature request for the CinemaVision Service add-on and push it to the official Kodi repository when we push CinemaVision 1.1.1.
