[Guide] Fix CV for Kodi 18.1+

Question

UPDATE

Download CinemaVision 1.1.1a10 which already contains a more comprehensive fix for this issue.

If this isn't working for you, please post your Logs which are very helpful in trying to figure out what other problems exist.

Spoiler

Before you start.

This fix involves changing code. Don't worry, its very simple and you don't need to know how to code.

It's been tested on Kodi 18.3 running on Windows 10 and OSMC on a Vero 4k. It should work everywhere though.

It is not a guaranteed fix. I have tested sequences with Actions, Trailers, Video Bumpers and Audio Format Bumpers and these are working.

 

So,

1. First  make sure you have the development version of CinemaVision 1.1.1a8 installed. If not, download from here and install.

2. Find your addons folder within kodi. This will change depending on what OS you have. This link should help you find kodi's main directory.

3. Go to addons/script.cinemavision/lib 

4. If you have any files with the extension .pyo  inside this folder, delete them. Don't worry, these are not important.

5. Now open experience.py 

- To make your life easier, consider installing something like Notepad++ or Sublime3 to edit this file.

- At this point you can backup this file to somewhere else, though the change is insignificant and should break nothing. You can also reinstall the addon which will revert back any changes.

6. Go to line 882 and delete it. That's it. Do not comment the line as kodi will create those .pyo files again which may break this fix.

This should be the line of code you have just deleted.


self.playlist.add(self.fakeFileNext)

 

Now check your code against this one to make sure you've done it correctly


def playVideos(self, videos, features=None):
        self.playlist.clear()
        rpc.Playlist.Clear(playlistid=xbmc.PLAYLIST_VIDEO)

        volume = (features or videos)[0].volume
        if volume != 100:
            self.volume.set(volume, relative=True)

        self.playlist.add(self.fakeFilePrev)
        if features:
            for feature in features:
                self.addFeatureToPlaylist(feature)
        else:
            for video in videos:
                pli = self.getPathAndListItemFromVideo(video)
                self.playlist.add(*pli)

        self.videoPreDelay()
        rpc.Player.Open(item={'playlistid': xbmc.PLAYLIST_VIDEO, 'position': 1}, options={'shuffled': False, 'resume': False, 'repeat': 'off'})
        xbmc.sleep(100)
        while not xbmc.getCondVisibility('VideoPlayer.IsFullscreen') and not xbmc.abortRequested and not self.abortFlag.isSet() and self.isPlaying():
            xbmc.executebuiltin('ActivateWindow(fullscreenvideo)')
            xbmc.sleep(100)
        self.hasFullscreened = True
        DEBUG_LOG('VIDEO HAS GONE FULLSCREEN')

7. Save the file overwriting the existing one. If you can't, make sure to save it with the same name and extension and then replace it.

8. Enable debugging in CinemaVision Advanced Settings

 

Restarting your system after these changes is recommended but not necessary.

If you've done everything correctly in this order it should work.

Are we still needing to delete the .pyo files and modify experience.py with release 1.1.1a12?  I've finally got some time and uninstalled the original and installed the updated 1.1.1a12.

Confirmed latest is working for me on Windows 10 and 18.4

However trailers are not. The trailers sequence ALWAYS play the same videos every time. I’m using the same sequence that I used in KODI 17. I have the sequence setup to randomly play 1 trailer from the CV content folder, 2 from the KODI DB, and 3 from the iTunes library. Every time tho it skips playing anything from the CV folder, then plays the same trailer from the KODI DB twice, then does randomly play 3 videos from iTunes. So the trailer portion is not working as it did.

Could someone confirm if this trailer setup works for them?

thanks

No, at this moment you just have to install CV as a regular addon.

If you don't have or CV doesn't recognise trailers that match your movie genre it will actually skip playing them.

Ok I tracked down the issue. It was the PlexKodiConnect addon preventing KODI trailers from being picked up by CV.

Hey RDSP -- I'm a bad community member - kind of left this whole upgrade thing set aside because my system was working well and I was kinda nervous to screw it all up and have to try to figure out how to go back.

Short story: IT COULDN'T HAVE WORKED BETTER!!! Congrats, sir. You've really nailed this!

Here is my situation in case it applies to anyone else. I'm working on a NVidia Shield TV - 2018 (I think? - It's not the newest, newest, but one step up from the original if I remember correctly.)

1. I had Kodi 18.1 with the original 1.1.1a8 from Ragnorak - and it was working flawlessly - including some really complicated lighting automation as well. I had shut off the Google Store auto-update to keep it safe.

2. Last weekend I decided to bite the bullet - went into the app settings for Kodi and chose to update - the system installed v18.4 from the Google Play Store over the top of my Kodi 18.1 and left CV 1.1.1a8 in place.

3. I downloaded CV 1.1.1a12 - and did an install from ZIP -- overwriting the old version (in other words, I never uninstalled anything - neither Kodi nor CV.) I also didn't reload anything else. Left my original sequences in place.

4. Went to a movie and selected the CV button and held my breath. PERFECTION!

Every module played and worked EXACTLY as it should. No hiccups, no black screens, no issues.

Sorry for being late in getting back to you - but congratulations all the same. You've brought our beloved CV back to life! And I for one couldn't be more appreciative!

Cheers!

Whatever is included in the NVidia Shield experience updates. I’m running the latest. I believe it’s “9.0 Pie” if that helps.

I've never been able to use itunes trailers myself because of the buffering. Can you enable debugging in CV settings, play a movie with it and post the log?

it is important to not this doesnt happen on every video just randomly

maybe my youtube is not setup right?

CV uses the youtube addon to play tmdb trailers. It sometimes wont play videos, don't know if its because the configuration or the addon itself.

I don't think Kodi can identify Atmos or DTS-X audio automatically yet.  I've used tags for those audio formats and created conditional sequences in CV to play those for movies that contain Atmos and DTS-X.

Hello all -

I am a long time CE and CV user, and very grateful to see continued support/development on this.  I am seeing a couple of issues with that latest build I wanted to report. 


Setup:
Libre ELEC 9.2  /  Kodi 18.5
Intel NUC hardware
Removed all previous CV installs and installed 1.1.1a12  from .ZIP file
https://pastebin.com/dDBFTxZg
https://pastebin.com/kAvjZyM9
 

  1. Trailers will not work when using the 'Content' option.  I have several 1080p .MOV trailers in the 'Trailers' folder, just as I had setup in previous versions.  I have 'match genre' turned off and ' rating limit' set to 'none.  Set to use only 'Content' with all other sources turned off.  Set to play two trailers.  One of two things occurs when attempting to use:
    1. No trailers play at all - trailers are skipped and next sequence item continues.
    2. Trailer audio starts to play on a black screen for a couple seconds, then CV seems to crash, and it kicks me back to movie screen or CV config screen where I started.
      NOTE: I am able to play a single trailer form this same source if I change source to 'single file' and specify a file from the folder.  So I know access/permissions are fine.

       
  2. During trivia, sometimes at random music will not output until enough time has elapsed to reach the second track or II manually FF to the end of the first track in order to jump to the 2nd track.  I have several mp3's in the 'Music' folder.  Other times all works 100% perfectly here without issue.

 

Thanks for all you do!

Try disabling Kodi Database and Apple Itunes Trailer Scapers in CV settings under Content.
Your log shows kodi trying to play trailers from YT.

Also Under Trailers experiment with setting Source to Directory and set your Trailer Folder directly under Source; Directory

Trivia is not working perfectly atm :/

Hello,

Is anyone experiencing audio bumpers being skipped? Specifically in my tests so far, DTS-X audio formats?

You have to provide logs, on my end both Atmos and DTS-X are being detected with tags in file's names.

Kodi 18 should be able to detect 3D sound formats but tags are a sure way for CV to work.

Check to see if youtube-dl is up to date. The addon itself doesn't have a lot of settings and the default should work.

Thanks - I have some new details to report on trailer issues.

YT issue:
I am seeing the symptom now you mentioned in logs, the trailers are attempting to play from YT.  I temporarily removed the YT add-in to make this more apparent during testing.  I confirmed Kodi Database and Apple itunes were already disabled in Content Settings as you mentioned.  I turned on/off just to be sure, and was still able to reproduce the issue consistently where it attempts to play YT trailers. 

I then noticed that under Trailer settings, the option 'Source: Content Filter (Scrapers)' was set to 'Content, TMDB'.  This option is to me a bit confusing to me in name and I am not sure how it interacts with the Trailer Scrapers options in Content settings.  Anyway, through testing I have come to realize that it is part of the issue with the YT trailers attempting to play.  If I disabled the TMDB option, leaving only Content option YT trailers no longer attempt to play..... so this explains how YT was coming in to play at least.  Not sure if this is functioning as intended or not. 

My locally stored trailers however were still not playing.......

 

Directory option:
This works 9 times out of 10 if I store all trailers directly under selected folder, not in sub folders.  It seems there is an issue with recursive scanning.  I am 99% sure this was previously allowed, as my trailers have always been stored in individual folders.

Content option:
I have never get this option to work on 1.1.1a12, even if all files are stored directly under CV\Trailers folder...... it simply skips trailers and moves on to next steps.

After some testing I can confirm that the Content Scraper is not working as it should. 
TMDB fetches trailers from Youtube so having it on is what caused Kodi to try to play YT videos.

For now the workaround is having the direct folder path as source either on CV settings or in the trailer module for each sequence.
I'll try to look into this to see whats going on.
Thanks for the detailed info!

KODI 18 does correctly detect the sound format; so CV doesn’t use KODI’s information? I guess I’ll have try tags then.

I'd be interested in giving the tags a go - OTA - can you provide a sample of how you tagged your ATMOS files?

Sure thing.  I use .nfo files for all my movies.  I also use it for IMAX versions of movies as I have a dedicated IMAX sequence too.  Here is a link about tagging from Kodi's Wiki.  I use tinyMediaManager to create my .nfo files.  I'll attach an example this evening when I get home.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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?

@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.

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'!

I did the action DenonOn.cvaction and it works. The DenonOf action is working also. The IP Adress is censured, yes.

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.

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.

...stupid Question: What is the recent Version of the developement release? My installation indicates 1.1.1a12 but the whole thread here just talks about 1.1.1a10. And the download section does not indicate the version available for download. How can i see if a new developement build is available??

Not a stupid question.  As far as I've been able to tell, 1.1.1.a12 is the current version.  However there appears to be no way to know that for sure.  I have no idea why.  Some info is buried in this thread, some info is buried in others.  I recall it took me a good bit of searching to even find 1.1.1.a12.  I don't even know how I found out it existed.

The latest version of CinemaVision was pushed to kodi repo and you can update to the latest version of CV there!

@Friffy1: Thank you, that alligns with my impression. I think, this ball goes to the developers: Would be great if you coluld clearly indicate within this thread, what the latest developement release version is.

 

@rdsp: I think you are correct related to the latest STABLE version. But i was asking for the last DEVELOPEMENT Release that this thread is related to.

This thread was created when I updated CV to a10. 

It was then updated by the original developer to a11 and I then finally updated to a12 (small fix).

This version is now 1.1.1 in Kodi's repo as the original version there was too old.

There isn't any advantage in using a12 vs the version pushed by Kodi.

I hope this clarifies the situation for all!

I suppose it does.  Thanks.  I guess the only thing that's unclear is how the version number scheme works.  I believe it's natural for one to presume that a v1.1.1a12 is newer than a plain v1.1.1 with no suffix.

@rdsp: Thank you for clarification!

For the time beeing i will stick to the a12 version that i have installed now until i do a major update to my player as it works too well to risk another update....
