So I'm using CinemaVision just as a theater intro, not to play movies. I'm using my BluRay player for that. So all I want CinemaVision to do is play an infinite sequence of trailers, trivia and courtesy video/short films. That way I can start up the theater without messing with the Raspberry Pi (hopefully) as well as switching back to it after a movie. I want to do all this without having to pull out the keyboard for the Raspberry to start the sequence again.
So nothing seems to work without having a Feature module in the sequence, but I can disable it and it still works so that's fine.
But if I add a Command module to have it go back X number of steps and loop the sequence, it never does that if the Feature module isn't active. If I set it to loop with the queue either full OR empty, it just terminates when it hits the Command module. If I pick "none" for that option, it locks CinemaVision with a black screen before it plays anything and won't escape or respond to the keyboard.
So is it possible to do what I outlined in the first paragraph? Seems like it shouldn't be hard...just a simpler loop version of the Command module?
Sorry one clarification: when I said "I set it to loop with the queue either full OR empty" I meant setting the option in the Command module setup. I never have anything in the actual feature queue since I'm not playing the movies that way. Hope that helps!
