    • Hi, Just wondering if there is a v18 support coming? The current version in the KODI repo doesn’t work with v18. thx
    • 18.1 has broken this workaround too. Now CV doesn't play at all :(
    • @DexDeadlyI had a couple of little bugs that I was ferreting out at the same time, I got them all sorted out except the CEC thing. I had to step back for a minute to get a fresh perspective on it, it was getting to be a bit much trying to sort it all out at once. I installed cec-client(?) on my Pi, but wasn't able to get any of the commands to execute via SSH from my laptop. I've got to take some time to read up on the documentation for that, it just wasn't as straight forward as I assumed it would be... or I was just overlooking something extremely simple lol. I also need to read up on how to get Kodi to execute SSH commands, it's just not something that I've had to do before.  I'm finishing up a RetroPie build right now, and have a couple of other projects to tie up, and plan to come back to this. Other than the not dimming thing though this has worked swimmingly so far, I'm so glad I revisited this post and gave it a try. And thanks for suggesting it... even if it did take me a while to jump on board lol.
    • Hi, I know there was some talk a while ago, about getting CinemaVision to work on the normal "Play" button on Kodi 18, istead of the "Cinema Mode" button that we have been using on earlier versions of CV & Kodi.  Will it be possible? Is this something that are being worked on? I haven't install Kodi 18 yet, but I think I will give it a try now that 18.1 is out. Does Cinema Vision working with Kodi 18 now? 
    • I was one of the many that awoke one day to find their Shield auto-updated Kodi to v18 without so much as a "do ya mind?" which subsequently had issues with my SQL back-end and performance. Those issues are now resolved, but I had to fix-forward with those as a quick google around found MANY in the same boat as me, and from what I gathered - the Google playstore will get its way in keeping things updated. It was then, that I realised I'd have to make something work with Leia. As mentioned - unfortunately in this specific config - 0 functionality with CinemaVision on Android Kodi 18. I use to run this functionality back in the day on the old CinemaExperience and now that I've got my Media Room complete, wanted to go back and add it in again. Found that CE had gone the way of the dinosaurs, but thankfully found CV had picked up the slack....unfortunately CV now seems to have suffered the same fate. It's a shame really - when it comes to a full cinema experience, this really is the icing on the cake. I'm stubborn though, so I'll probably keep tinkering, so if I manage to wrangle some sort of fix or workaround, I'll be sure to post. Update: Just checked Ragnarok's profile on the Kodi forums, and he was last online on the 10th of Feb this year, so the man's alive. Hopefully life is treating him well and we'll see him back in action sooner rather than later.
