Content path error


Hi, I just updated my Shield to version 7.2.2 and with that it updated Kodi to v18 Leia. At one point I had to reinstall Leia because of weird display zoom issues and after I re-installed Cinemavision, I could no longer set the content path to the same folder on my NAS without getting the error 'Make sure the drive is writable and the folder is valid'. I double checked that the user that I login with to the NAS from my Shield has both read and write privs to the folder.

I've tried it also with a beta version of Cinemavision (v1.1.1a8), but I got the same error.

I didn't upgrade like you @Fisherman456 but I've been trying to get CinemaVision working on my Shields for the last week without any success. Shields are on the same Android version yours is, and also on the same version of Kodi and running the same version of CinemaVision.

Your error I've received, and managed to skirt around by just making a new parent folder and pointing CinemaVision to that. It will then generate all the subfolders fresh which seems to clear up any permission errors received. Then just copy your actual files from your previous CinemaVision folder into the fresh structure. No idea why that works - I'm assuming it's some weird ownership/permission miss-match going on even if all looks well.

In having said that - as mentioned, still 0 luck getting anything working out of CinemaVision on the Shields. Windows install works 100% - Android version of Kodi, none. Can't even get it to play the default sequence that has the files stored locally, so the whole permissions thing is definitely not the underlying issue. Considering it works on Windows, and not on Android using the same permissions with the current builds of CinemaVision/Kodi/Android - leads me to believe it's an issue with the CinemaVision add-on and the android version of Kodi.
