can't get it to run, help?


I use to use CV all the time on v16, don't remember if I ever used it on 17. I recently installed Leia and want to use CV again. I remembered how to set it up, but couldn't get it working. So, I followed the guide on here. The run options grayed out, and if I try to to a test run all I get is a big pause icon. In case the directory layout changed in a newer CV version, I let it create the content directories and I copied my files in manually. Files and directories are named the same as it was when it worked on my older XBMC setup. I can't get the script to run, so I'm not sure if a log will hell. but here's mine.  Also something I noticed, when I do a "update content" it's not finding anything. It takes about 7 seconds and shoots me back to the options menu. I have about 16 gigs of trivia, and bumpers videos in my CinemaVision. Here's my log

If it helps any, my trivia's named xxxx-x_a.jpg, xxx-x_q.jpg, right now every trivia slide's in the root trivia directory. Once I get CV working I'll organize it better. I'm pretty sure this worked great in the old XBMC.


here's my directory layout

I tried a bunch of things and noticed something, when I run it and tried to create a new sequence I could hear the skins sound when I arrow around, but I didn't see anything on the screen. To test, I tried it in another skin and the same thing. if I press return it does bring up whatever I was hovering over. But, since I can't see what I'm selecting it's just random. I tried removing and reinstalling CV. Didn't help. I did see in my log I had a few repo's that might have been an issue. So, I removed everything I've added. Still no dice.  I still have my 17.6 in another directory (I run portable mode always) and CV works fine and I'm able to create new sequences from scratch with no problem. My 18 has my database from 17, everything else seems to work in Leia, at least everything I use it for. I want to use CV, but I don't want to go back to 17.6 or have to start fresh with 18. I am about to install a clean Leia and see what CV does, gotta imagine it would work. But if it does, that  means I need to figure out what's wrong with my install.


Okay, I  just noticed I'm running 18.1, I Googled 18.1 + CV and see a few other people having the problem I am.

This really sucks, but I can't complain because a free add-on isn't working. Seems to have the same exact problem for me in 18.  I still have a 17.6 which I'll use just for my movies.  Thanks for the reply, you saved me from probably wasting the rest of the week attempting to get it working lol.
