    StarWars - Cinema Intro (1080p)

    Very rough around the edges, clearly cobbled together hastily without fully removing the traces of the advertisements from which the footage was sourced.

    Expected behavior

    i'm wondering if this is how CV is supposed to work. when i go to a movie and select CV in the action menu, a menu pops up and i have to make an acknowledgement of which sequence to play to continue. i have a general sequence i use for all movies and have it flagged as auto-select - the only one with auto select on. this does cause it to be the default in the popup, but i still have to acknowledge the selection. is that the expected sequence? i have seen discussion on here before about launching CV on kodi play and that would be awesome. i am a developer and wouldn't mind taking a crack at making this happen. just have no idea where to start. i'm new to kodi dev.

    Add On Doesn't work

    Simple as that. It just doesn't work. Can't discern why even after looking at the pastebin. It's just stuck in demo mode. I have all the content in the right folders, I hit update content and it brings up the loading thing and half a second later it goes away like it failed and nothing has changed. Still says to go to settings to enter the content path. I tried installing the latest version which I downloaded from this site and the only change is the GUI and it actually does start to play a trailer but then after 1 second it stops to buffer and doesn't play again. But it should play my own local bumpers first before the trailer anyway so it's still broken.
  7. Hi folks, First of: Thanks for updating CinemaVision so it works with a newer Kodi build. But I noticed, that since the new version I can't skip to the next titel when I play through my playlist. Does anyone else have the same issue? If I hit the skip button nothing happens. I can fast foward however and play and pause obviously. It used to work back in the day with the old version and pre Kodi 18. Would be great if there is a fix for that. I am using the Nvidia Shield and Kodi 18. Cinemavision 1.1.1.a10 cheers
  8. In Defence Of Our Good Name As most who read this will know well, Kodi is a free and open source media centre software application. It is created and supported by the group of unpaid volunteers known as Team Kodi, along with a large number of members of our very large and active user community. The software is freely available for anyone to download and use, and to fork and modify if they so desire. It is not a commercial product, and no money is gained from it, as it is not sold. One important point of note is that whilst Team Kodi produces media centre software, one thing that we do not provide is actual media. We don't make films, television channels or programmes, nor do we directly provide them as part of the software package that we distribute. Similarly, we do not produce hardware - there is no "Kodi Box" that's supplied by us. This is a key fact, as there are many third party hardware suppliers out there who do supply such boxes, which either come pre-loaded with Kodi on them or onto which it can be loaded by the end user. To the uninitiated this may seem like a trivially small distinction, but it is actually a very important one. As noted, we make the software available to anyone who may wish to use it, and do so for free. But this does not mean that we are responsible for how those end users make use of the software, and how they may modify it when installed on their boxes. We have no commercial interest or stake in any such sale, nor do we receive any monies from any media player box sold anywhere. Kodi also does not provide any media itself. Users must provide their own content or manually point Kodi to third party online services. The Kodi project does not provide any support for bootleg video content. Unfortunately, some of these vendors are less than scrupulous, and modify the Kodi product with third party addons giving access to illegally supplied or otherwise-pirated media sources. Hence we wish to make it crystal clear that Team Kodi does not condone, support or benefit from any such usage or device. Indeed, through our official Foundation policies, we actively deny support for any such device on our community forums, and through our trademarks and other legal means will act against any vendor who falsely claims any such endorsement from us. This has also, on numerous occasions, lead to false or misleading statements being made about both the Kodi software and also the team behind it. These have been from a range of sources, from sellers wishing to falsely claim association or endorsement from us to YouTube channels wishing to make a buck by offering "support" (usually involving 3rd party piracy addons) and, sadly, even from media outlets (both mainstream and technical) where a little basic research would yield the truth. Our aim has always been to give our users the best media experience possible, and to ensure that, whilst they are free to use our software in any manner they wish, it is done with full knowledge and understanding of what they may be doing, enabling them to make responsible choices. Sadly some of these sellers, either deliberately or through ignorance, confuse the users as to what may be legal and what is not. We do not support media piracy, we support the best media player possible for everyone and provide a media centre, not "free TV and movies". In the past, out of our very scant resources, we have worked in cooperation with media companies on such matters to check illegal activities and we will continue to do so. We do not have resources to be involved in litigation, especially those in foreign jurisdictions. We are disappointed and reject the incorrect characterisation of Kodi, its software, or its volunteer community.

  10. Everything works... Except for one thing. System Shield pro 2019 kodi 18.5 I have a sequence created. When I select Cinemavision from the context menu, I get the popup and it selects the correct one and pre-fills it in the top right box. The problem, if i hit Play, I get an error. https://pastebin.com/BWgJ4E2h If i select the top right box, then select the sequence, then hit Play, it works as expected. This only happens with ones that I change the name of the sequence, if I use the "save as" option, it works. Weird
  11. yeah, would be great!! constellation for xbmc supported cinema experience. this doesn´t work anymore. it would be a great benefit for the home cinema experience if i could use my ipad mounted on the wall to start my pc with kodi, select a movie and play it with CV. The first action could change to the right inputs and open the curtain........
  12. So I tested again. I made my own .cvaction for each action. Individually they work very well, only when I try to run CV completely, then Kodi crashes again after switching on the Denon. I will run Kodi 17.6 till the problem is fixed. Thank you @rdsp for your work and your efforts.
  13. @rdsp Thank you very very much. I´ll try it later.
  14. Ok so from memory, I don't recall CV code for actions being changed that much from 1.1.0 to where it is now so I'm assuming something in Kodi changed. For now your best bet is to use both BeamerOn and DenonOn to turn on your projector and your receiver. I know this may not be ideal but since having an action with that single http line is working you can use both actions sequentially. Meanwhile I'll try to take a look at the code or figure if the syntax needs to be different because of Kodi.
  15. I did the action DenonOn.cvaction and it works. The DenonOf action is working also. The IP Adress is censured, yes.
  16. In order to figure out what's going on, can you try to make a temporary action that only includes that http line to turn on your receiver and see if it works? Also, is your DenonOff action working? Edit: I'm assuming that IP address is censured or its meant to have those two 'x'!
  17. @rdspThank you for the fast feedback. Your job is great. If I do the whole thing in the Sequence editor then kodi crashes too. When kodi crashes, i am automatically back in the shield TV interface The reason why you don´t see the DenonOn.cvaction is, I have Denon On Action in the beameron.cvaction file. Her it is the beameron.cvaction file: sleep://1000 command:///data/user/0/com.arachnoid.sshelper/bin/beameron.sh (=Beamer On) sleep://8000 http://192.168.188.xx/goform/formiPhoneAppPower.xml?1+PowerOn (=Denon On) sleep://4000 command:///data/user/0/com.arachnoid.sshelper/bin/bildpauseon.sh (=Beamer black mask) sleep://90000 command:///data/user/0/com.arachnoid.sshelper/bin/bildpauseoff.sh (=Beamer black mask off) sleep://2000 command:///data/user/0/com.arachnoid.sshelper/bin/digitalkino.sh (=Beamer Picture setup digital cinema) Kodi crashes exactly at the point when the Denon is switched on. Up to this point, everything works If I have switched on the projector and the Denon before I start CV, everything will work perfectly. It looks like that the moment Denon On Crashes Kodi. Funny thing is that it all works in version Kodi 17.6.

    What kind of problems? Can you upload a log from a session when it fails?
  19. Your log shows an action being used to turn off the receiver - DenonOff.cvaction. However it's not showing a Denon On action. If I understand correctly this is where Kodi and CV would crash. Can you open your sequence editor and try to run this action from there?
  20. With rs232 I can control the projector more precisely and directly, e.g. Format changeover, zoom, color settings, HDR etc. After Trailer Show (in1080p) the Beamer switch to 4K HDR Mode and Zoom into 21:9, if the Movie is in this Format, thats not possible with HDMi.

    [Guide] Fix CV for Kodi 18.1+

    Rdsp will likely be able to help you out. Just be patient - this isn’t anyone’s “job” - so it may be a few days. Curious why you use RS-232 instead of hdmi to trigger the power up?
  22. First of all I would like to thank you for the further development of CV. I run CV Version 1.1.1a12 on Nvidia Shield TV with Kodi 18.5. The Version 18.1+1.1.1a10 doesn´t work for me. When I run CV first I have a action file that turns on the projector via RS232 on and then turns on the Denon AV Receiver before an intro clip starts. With Kodi version 17.6 and CV 1.1.0 everything was stable. With the current configuration, CV and Kodi crashes after the Denon AV Receiver is turned on. I switched on the projector and the Denon and then activated CV it works. What could be the problem? Here is the log: https://pastebin.com/27qaXc8j Hope somebody can help me.

  25. Kodi at FOSDEM 2020 Hello Belgium once again. In the tradition of the last few years, members of Team Kodi will be present at FOSDEM in Brussels this weekend. If you live somewhere nearby or are attending, please feel free to come and meet some of our team members in person. FOSDEM is an annual, volunteer-driven, non-commercial event that focuses on free and open source software development. It's primarily aimed at developers, although the talks and stands are open to anyone who's interested. Its main aim is to simply create a meeting place; it's a fantastic opportunity for people to mix, chat, share ideas, collaborate, promote awareness, and generally interact with like-minded individuals. Every year, thousands of developers from all over the world descend on the Université Libre de Bruxelles to attend. This year, there will be representatives of projects such as Gnome, Mozilla, Debian, GitLab, LibreOffice, Apache - and of course some of the Kodi team as well. We won't have a stand this time, but in between attending talks and generally mingling, we'd love to meet with our friends in the community who might be reading this. Kodi Team Meet and Greet It doesn't matter whether you're a user or developer, whether you work with Kodi or something else, if you have commercial interests, or if you're simply curious. Pop along if you're interested; several Team Kodi members will be present to chat at your leisure. Room J.1.106, Sunday 2nd February, 12:00-13:00. View the full article...

    Hello together, is there a chance to run Cinemavision on Nvidia Shield TV and Kodi 18.5? Is there any support for cinemavision add-on in 2020?

    How to Configure CinemaVision

    Thanks for this guide I added my smb source in the Kodi File Manager, and I have the needed permissions (I was able to create the Folder). But how can I add this source as Content path? When I open the "Content path" Setting, I see "Home Folder", "Network File System (NFS)", "Root filesystem" and "Windows Network (SMB)". Is the added source somewhere mounted?
  29. Sorry about the delay. I've attached an example of a .nfo file for Hunger Games that has Atmos. It's the first tag in the tag list. movie.nfo
