Sequence issue?

Recommended Posts

I'm new at this so I'm sure the problem is in my logic. Since the holidays are approaching, I want to setup a couple of computers running Kodi with CinemaVision for the kids that will be visiting. I'm trying to create a sequence that performs the following items:

1. Play theater intro --> 2. Check queue (if full --> skip to #4) --> 3. Play trivia (2 minutes) --> 4. Play Feature --> 5. Check queue (If empty --> Back to #2)

Note: The reason I want #5 to go back to #2 is because if something gets put into queue, I want it to check and then possibly skip the trivia and just go to the queued feature and repeat. if nothing is in queue, i want it to just keep playing trivia questions.

It appears that when I add the loopback at the end, #5; it prevents the entire sequence from running and I have to press ALT+F4 to kill the kodi.exe process. If I disable #5, the steps 1-4 work fine. Anyone else attempt something similar that has been successful?

Basically I want the kids to use an Android tablet with Kore to queue things on a system that will keep CinemaVision alive on the screen and if they queue a movie, i want it to play it and then go back to trivia on their TVs unless they queue something else at some point while playing in the rooms while they are here. Almost like Party Mode so they don't have to navigate Kodi so much since they are little kids. Plus, the trivia is all Disney / Pixar based and that will also keep them entertained!

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<sequence>
    <item enabled="True" type="video">
        <vtype>theater.intro</vtype>
        <random>True</random>
        <count>1</count>
        <play3D>True</play3D>
    </item>
    <item enabled="True" type="command">
        <command>skip</command>
        <arg>2</arg>
        <condition>feature.queue=full</condition>
    </item>
    <item enabled="True" type="trivia">
        <duration>2</duration>
    </item>
    <item enabled="True" type="feature">
        <ratingBumper>none</ratingBumper>
    </item>
    <item enabled="True" type="command">
        <command>back</command>
        <arg>3</arg>
        <condition>feature.queue=empty</condition>
    </item>
</sequence>

Your logic is sound, that feature doesn't exist in this version. :) It's a pretty neat idea though, a sort of babysitter mode. Right now, the queue is in flux when CinemaVision is playing videos, so nothing new can be applied to it. queuing items during the sequence will crash it, because it essentially interrupts the sequence and breaks our API. We might be able to add things to the queue during trivia slides, but we'll need to look at it after the initial release, since it's potentially going to break the way we do sequences. I'm going to move your thread into feature requests, so we can keep track of it. Thanks for the suggestion!
