A few questions to get CV working better.

Question

I'm looking for a few answers so figured I'd put them all in one place.

 

1. Still having issues adding local or network directories with videos for trailers, cartoons etc. that can be easily selected by CV. I've had to resort to editing the CV sequence file with Notepad++ to make any directory/network changes.

 

2. As I posted elsewhere I can not save a CV sequence from the editor, specifically changing the active status. I just get an error saying CV can not save to that location which is the same location the file is in.

 

3. I think this is a newer feature but I've not seen any demo or been able to figure it out. Is it now possible to create several sequences that are delectable once clicking on the CV button within the skin? For example having a "Full" and a "Short" sequence I can chose between so I can see just a few trailers and audio bumpers rather than the full main sequence. I don't specifically mean the conditional sequence either if the movie selected fits into one of those.

 

4. On the dis-able/enable of refresh rate I've never gotten this to work but I would like to as when running CV on a projector it takes 5 seconds (Kodi setting) between each video for the projector to refresh it's rate based on the next video, even if it's the same as the previous. If I add these action files will Kodi just force each video file to conform to the set re-fresh rate? If so, how should I handle this for 3D content?

 

5. To add to #4 I also get audio drop-out between each video on my receiver so I tend to lose a second or so of audio when each new video begins. Is there a way to set the audio output to a specific codec (DD5.1 works for me) and have Kodi stream all further content as such?

 

6. Last to add to #4 is the on-screen display popping up often after refresh rate changes. Is it possible to disable that, including for the main feature?

2 and 4 I have answered by myself. I now have a few more questions, specifically about conditional sequences.

 

First, it would be great is one of the conditions was based in full or in part of the file name. So if I want a sequence for only Star Wars movies I don't have to add tags to each of them because they are all already named, in part, Star Wars.

 

Second, it would be nice to be able to select trivia slides from a specific folder. Like above if I want to make a Star Wars conditional sequence I only want Star Wars trivia slides.

 

Third, like trivia slides it would be cool to be able to select from library trailers by certain tags, file/folder name etc. I have a conditional sequence for Best Picture Oscar winners and seeing trailers for other BP winners would make it perfect.

 

Is Ragnarok still out there???

Hey Dave! Sorry, I've been dealing with family medical stuff and my focus shifted there. Work has continued, I just went radio silent for a while. All of those features you mentioned are currently in the works, and each is pretty high on our list. The first two are low-hanging fruit that you'll likely see soon, maybe even in the final 1.1.1 release. The third one is a much more complicated feature that would require some database integration to identify what trailer is playing, then call back to a database to get all of the relevant metadata and processing that. We do have an overhaul of a much more customizable trailer system planned, but that feature is going to take considerable development effort so it's going to be a while.
