  3. Hello, is there any progress on this? How I would use it: I have been setting up my own sequence manually just in Kodi without CinemaVision. I add three music videos (ideally added at random via smart playlist) and one pre-show cartoon from a couple of TV shows. Being able to use smart playlists to randomly select X items would be great! Thanks, Khanstvo

    Kodi Leia 18.1 with 1.1.1a8 Error

    This is by no means “official” word - but given the lack of interactivity - time is likely running out for this website. I’ve already downloaded all existing files and I also copy and pasted all of the more advanced guides to have for reference. For those trying to get CinemaVision going - I can share my experience: On my Shield, I turned off the auto-update on the Google Play store. Installed the final release Kodi 18.0 from the Github repository. Installed the last beta release from this website that gave it 18.0 compatibility. I run the default Kodi skin that comes with the software, so I can’t speak to other skins. I also discovered that several of the streaming music playlists (for music during trivia) are no longer working. So if you pick a non-functioning stream - Kodi will just hang at that point. For what it’s worth - the LINN channels seem to still function. Or you could point to your own files. Everything else works well. I’m even using it with the Philips Hue actions for lighting automation. So even though the project is “dead” - it’s still useable. Hopefully either the developer will return or another developer will take over. In the meantime, I’m still getting what I consider to be my “money’s worth” out of the only decent Cinema add-on to be developed for Kodi.
  7. I had the same question a while back. I received the below answer: Okay, remembered this tonight and, as expected, it's not working. The action files function as my lights dim, etc, but just a black screen when it should be playing bumpers and main attraction.

    Has anyone tried Cinemavision with Kodi 18.3?

    I don't know. I'd have to try it, but I'm using Xonfluence, not No Limits. It came up, but I couldn't select anything (Cinemavision that is)
  10. MartinsVision

    Has anyone tried Cinemavision with Kodi 18.3?

    hey any chance it could be skin specific ? a combination of 18 and the skins where using no limits for example ?

    Has anyone tried Cinemavision with Kodi 18.3?

    I don't really care about new features. I'd just like it to run again so it's usable. It apparently worked in 18.0 so it couldn't be something too big, I don't think. Is Ragnarok the only one that worked on it?

    Has anyone tried Cinemavision with Kodi 18.3?

    Damn i was really hoping to hear some better news ..
  14. Shoot. This totally slipped my mind. Watched two movies this weekend too. I use the classic forum skin and still see the goals. Currently $4240.43 of 6K target for round 2. It's not the first time something people have paid for was deprecated and it won't be the last. It's the lifetime of the product/company not the lifetime of the person who payed. Whether or not you got your money's worth could be argued and is subjective. I haven't uninstalled CV but just disabled it. I always have the hope that Ragnarok will return after dealing with whatever is going on in his personal life, but if not, it was fun while it lasted.

    So, I may be forced to use Leia if I want SMB to work with Windows 10 here (seeing it has no NFS server built-in and SMB1 is dangerous to run). That means Cinemavision will stop working. I see no updates for years here. Is CinemaVision basically dead now? There used to be "goal" meters, etc. for the next version and they're nowhere to be seen so I'm just assuming the worst, really. I'm so glad I signed up for that lifetime membership now.... 😉

    There may be very sad reasons why it's all stopped, but a complete lack of explanation means none of us know. Meanwhile you (Sledge) have paid for a product that is now all but defunct, and this website is still selling membership, which seems odd at the very least bordering on downright deceitful given no-one is warned on the front page, or the purchase page that it will not work on current versions. I'm very disappointed in the way the admin have chosen to handle this situation.

    Has anyone tried Cinemavision with Kodi 18.3?

    No biggie - I was kinda forced into it. I wouldn’t expect anything to be resolved until someone digs into the code. But since it works fine in 18.0 - I was hoping maybe they introduced a bug in 18.1 that is causing it and might be resolved. However, I think they must just be handling something differently.
  18. Okay cool. Sorry I hadn't tried yet. Been busy with 4th of July stuff, but tonight is popcorn, movie night with the kids so I was going to test it. I'll try it just for grins and giggles anyway. I didn't uninstall CV, I just disabled it, so it will be quick test.
  19. ELPTheater

    Has anyone tried Cinemavision with Kodi 18.3?

    I can answer it - as my stupid Shield had auto update enabled and put 18.3 on my system. No go whatsoever. At this point 18.0 is the only version I can get to work reliably.

    I paid to support this app and would be happy to pay more to get this thing to work but the worst thing is that we have been kept hanging for months
  21. I'll check and see if libreelec has an update to 18.3. If so, I'll reenable CV and see what the results are. I don't expect it to be any different, but you never know until you try I suppose.

    Support for Kodi 18+

    So we are either on or about to be on Kodi 18.3 - most people will know that from 18 on-wards CinemaVision is just not working. Any updates from admin on where we are at? Is it worth checking back here every now and then? or has this project now completely finished support? I know the stock answer has been to rollback Kodi, but on some platforms that isn't an option. Any update would be gratefully received!

  25. The Freedom of Choice One of the main tenets of both Kodi and open-source software in general is freedom of choice. By making the software freely and publicly available without charge, users are able to try the software with no financial outlay or risk. As the source code is also available for inspection, the risks of "hidden nasties" such as covert information gathering and other data mining can also be alleviated. Anyone can download, review and audit any part of the software that they wish, as well as submitting any updates, improvements and bug fixes that they may make. This notion of user choice is also key to the operation and support offered by Team Kodi, both through GitHub and the web forum. One common question is why we don't do more to combat piracy, especially given our zero tolerance policy towards support (or lack thereof, aside from attempts to completely remove from infected systems). The simple answer is that we believe in user choice, and that if the user makes the conscious and informed decision that they want to use Kodi for such purposes then that is up to them. Similarly, any resultant technical or legal problems which may arise are also down to them, and there's no liability or responsibility on Team Kodi for what a user has chosen to do. An Informed Choice Key to that stance, though, is that the user has made an informed choice. This is the reason why third-party repositories are not usable by default in Kodi. The user has to make a specific action to enable their usage, complete with a warning pop-up message about the risks and liabilities involved. We take responsibility for our official repository and what we we allow into it, and content is reviewed and audited before it is included. Any fork of Kodi which seeks to override or remove this default setting would immediately be blacklisted by the team, and no support for it at all would be offered by any official Team Kodi outlet. Similarly, this is why the team does not allow forks with pre-installed add-ons to be made without complete rebranding and disassociation from Kodi, and why no "builds" are supported. By "build", here we use the term in the common user parlance (as can be found on many of the third-party YouTube videos and parasitic "fan" websites that we would rather did not exist) for collections of add-ons either grouped into an "all in one" installation, or even images of Kodi with such add-ons pre-installed. This obviously completely removes the user choice element, aside from the choice to install the build in the first place. The main issues here are twofold. Firstly, whilst such builds tend to install popular piracy add-ons, they often also quietly install other code under the hood with little or no visibility to the user. This can range from scripts that try to maintain the installation (given the limited lifespan of such add-ons) to ones that aim to sabotage or remove those of rival suppliers - and, in the extreme, even to malicious malware scripts to form botnets, mine digital coinage or perform other nefarious actions behind the user's back. Secondly, such builds tend to be advertised on websites and in videos as being official, legal and legitimate. This is often deliberately done to confuse the naive user that they are getting something for nothing and a good deal. Of course, a moment's thought and common sense should tell anyone that if media providers such as Sky, HBO and Disney charge people what they do for their officially-provided services, then offers of them for free cannot be above board. Similarly, sources or add-ons offering media that wouldn't normally be available, such as movies that are still in cinema theatres, should also ring alarm bells in the head of any consumer. Uncommon Sense, or Stating the Obvious? Unfortunately in this day and age such common sense does not seem to apply to the internet. We often see this on the forum when new users request support for such installations and then apologise with "sorry, I didn't know" or similar when we decline to assist. They completely miss the point that it was their choice and basic greed that led them there, and a moment's thought should have given them pause. For some reason users seem to willingly accept the most obviously dodgy deals on the internet, ones that they wouldn't touch if offered in a pub car park, car boot sale or other "real world" environment. Our simple advice is to apply the same judgement to your Kodi installation as you would to anything else in life. If the deal you're being offered seems too good to be true, it quite probably is and there will be a catch somewhere. The team works hard to provide the Kodi software and also to curate the official repository. Both of these can be safely used when obtained from our official site. However, beyond that, the principles of caveat emptor apply. We expect and enforce that users are responsible for their own actions and the repercussions from them. So before using any third party repository or add-on, take a moment to consider what you know about the authors, their reputation and what they are offering. Don't be fooled by false promises and dodgy deals - in the end the person responsible for your devices' safety and security is you. Tags: Addon Banned addons Education tips View the full article...
  26. Just wondering if anyone has tried it - I went back to 18.0 and would like to avoid going back and forth with versions if it’s not necessary. Thanks in advance!
  27. Two months have passed since our last bugfix release and already we have a new one ready for consumption. Fancy a few more features? There aren't any, with one teeny-tiny exception. Apparently DTS-HD audio only tracks are a thing and Kodi can now play them like any other music format. That's it. No more features. Seriously. However, since Kodi 18.3 is a bugfix release, we have a boatload of erm... fixes. In fact, too many to mention. Below is a non-exhaustive list of (mostly) usability fixes. Estuary Fixed favourites widget not scrolling properly on 16:10 displays Fixed API button was not reachable with a mouse on Settings window Fixed Skin Settings window scrollbar focus Fixed order of TV Show title and Episode title in Video Info dialog Added Search button to the side menu in the Video and Music windows Fixed Wall and Infowall views scroll to bottom on certain aspect-ratios Fixed broken side menu navigation in the Addon Browser window PVR Fixed a Group Manager crash when adding a new group Fixed EPG UI corruption and/or EPG data not showing with newly added channels Fixed PVR guide window channel data being overwritten Music Added support for DTS-HD audio tracks Fixed wrong album or artist thumb art being picked from scraper results The remaining fixes are under the hood and range from addressing nasty memory leaks to DVD playback from HTTPS sources, with a couple of crash and burn events in between. A special thanks to all the users that found a bug, took the time to report it and, in some cases, provided a fix. The full v18.3 changelog can be found in our GitHub milestone. If you want to read back on what was actually changed in v18 itself, you can find the corresponding articles in the blog posts - Kodi 18, Kodi 18.1 and Kodi 18.2. As usual, Kodi 18.3 availability on Google Play and Microsoft Store may take a few more days. Stay tuned. Tags: Release Announcements View the full article...
  28. Yesterday the new Raspberry Pi 4B was unveiled with a revised spec that guarantees it will be super-popular with Kodi users. It brings 4K media support, faster CPUs, faster memory, faster Ethernet, faster USB, and now handles HEVC natively. It's a great update on the previous 3B+ model, and at $35 for the 1G model it's also a bargain, and we predict it will be a massively popular way to run Kodi via distro's like LibreELEC, OSMC and Raspbian. The 4B's board layout is different to previous models so upgrading (and new) users will need a new case – and what better to wrap a Pi 4B in than a Kodi Edition Flirc case! Retaining the design language that made the original case great, the Flirc case has been re-tooled to accommodate the Raspberry Pi 4B's ports and CPU placement ensuring maximum cooling efficiency. Otherwise it's the same winning formula and gorgeous design as the previous 3B/3B+ Kodi Edition case. The main body is Aluminium and designed to act as a heatsink that keeps the BCM2711 chip in your 4B cool. The top surface of the Aluminium has been mirror-polished to catch your eye, and the Kodi branded top uses soft-touch plastics so it not only looks great, it feels great too. Flirc is well into manufacturing and are offering an early bird discount of 30%. At USD $11.20 (normal price USD $15.95) that's a steal! – and orders will ship in late July. Flirc is also offering the 3B/3B+ case at the same discounted rate to clear remaining inventory. Team Kodi receives a royalty on each Kodi branded case sold – and alongside t-shirt sales it's one of the main sources of funding for the Kodi Foundation. Flirc also donate a percentage of the sale to Cancer research at the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, which plays a key role in personal back-story to Flirc.
