    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.

    The following is from @Ragnarok regarding the current status of CinemaVision. The latest and greatest stable version is 1.1.1 currently. It took us a while to get that approved for the official repository. I'll be working on bringing our new developer up to speed over the next month or so, and then we can start with new features and completing the features we have in the current pipeline. I'm hopeful and excited that @0raid is taking the reigns and will be able to give us fresh new perspectives and integrations. Our original developer, @ruuk, will still help with direction and steering but will be stepping back from an active development role to focus more on his job and family. Now for some more good news! The website is back online and snappier than ever. We've successfully migrated to our new server, and while I've got a few weird things going on that I need to address with our CMS, it should be fully functional. If you have any trouble, please let me know. And for the record: This project was started, and is maintained, with the best intentions. The subscriptions you all purchase are used to ensure this project is sustainable and allows us to purchase new templates for the content we distribute. I know some folks snapped to a decision that the project was dead, and that we grabbed the cash and split. That's on me, honestly. A lack of communication while I dealt with personal and professional changes in my life led to those conclusions. I know that it's been dormant for about a year, but I am working on planning out a new wave of content and updating our current content as well. I've got some new ideas that I'll be workshopping with the team and our new developer. In the interest of transparency, here's where we stand: With your support, we've been able to keep CinemaVisions' expenses fully paid which allows us to continue to deliver all of the content on the website, and give folks a place to collaborate on their own content and share it with the community. We've done our best to keep expenses low, and save as much of your donations and subscriptions as possible. We can keep the lights on for quite a while, and as long as the project is able to pay for itself, you don't have to worry about it disappearing. We really appreciate the continued support as we ramp up the new development cycle. This really is a team effort.

    Here are some updates: We have completely translated CV to Python3 including some dependencies that we couldn't find updated anywhere. That took longer than expected. At this point, it's still not working because of changes to other scripts CV uses. We are trying the updated versions and have to change the code to work nicely with these. Youtube trailers won't work because the script hasn't been maintained or updated for a long time. I will keep this thread updated as soon as I have any more news.

    While I cannot promise anything I am trying to get a developer to work with me to change CV to python 3. If this happens it will take a couple of months or more depending on our free time. I am aware that CV may not work properly after 18.7 but if we're to update CV to Kodi 19 it may be easier to work on compatibility from that version on therefore anyone using CV right now may want to stay away from these newer versions. On a last note, we'll be working on maintaining compatibility only so people can keep using it, fixing bugs is secondary and adding features is not planned. We're doing this because we love and use this addon too.

    I love the VUE bumpers, but bemoan the lack of 5.1 or better sources... so.. I made a couple I tried as best as I could to replicate the speaker-spread in the cinema versions. Vue-Sizzle-AC3.mp4 Vue-Phones-AC3.mp4

    Getting the app working in 19 is the priority but I am happy people are bringing up the issues so they can fixed at a later date. Does Kodi now detect 3D audio formats automatically or does it rely on tags for that still?

    Aha! I may have found the actual bug! - well I donr another script... same error... but I did think (being I work in IT) that perhaps the PATH is too long? so yes my script had a longer name than the others.... I shortened it and guess what? bug went away and it played.

    Same again. No different, it is very odd! I'll try another sequence incase ive done something. Fixed it now - unsure what it was but i redone the sequence by 'cloning' the default.... load default into editor change its name save as using a different name edit said file with content. save. the only thing I did differently was previously I made a new file.... I can live with the quirk.

    So ultimately this is what I've been able to grab from the Wayback Machine from Demo World: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1v65tOokgNaeRS0dDAXDZBbXtjpjEzqYEdxWWWtrQYUo/edit?usp=sharing Overall it has the entire list of download links posted earlier in this thread and what is hilighted in green is what I've been able to grab direct from Demo World's archives. Now there are a couple other sources that have duplicated or may have even more than what DW had. First off is obviously CinemaVision's own collection of files. There's also DemoLandia and TheDigitalTheater. These are the main sites I've focused on and also grabbed copies of their content. The naming is making it a bit difficult to compare to DW so I am considering just leading off with the collection of files from each individual site and post them as-is. That said the initial posting is likely going to be in torrent form to make it easy to get out there. I need to see if there's a way I can post this to the Internet Archive proper and not have it buried behind Wayback Machine archives.

    I've used a Shield with CV for the past few years, and it's handled everything I've thrown at it. Web calls definitely work--I use SmartThings as well to control lights in my sequences.

    Hi all, I am trying to start a Cinemavision sequence via the Kodi RPC API. The only thing I can manage is to get to the CinemaVision home screen by using the following JSON RPC message: { method: 'Addons.ExecuteAddon', params: { addonid: 'script.cinemavision', params: [ '' ] } } I wonder what the supported values for the key "params" are. I could not find any documentation on that. My goal is to pass along the name of a preshow sequence and to start the preshow according to the given value. --> Is there a description on the supported values for the key "params" for CinemaVision? --> Is it possible to trigger the playback of any sequence (a specific one, or just a default one) via the Kodi JSON RPC API? Best regards, Frank.

    There doesn't seem to have been any definitive answer given to this. I read that the developer was dealing with some personal issues, but there has never been any update. Kodi 18.1 is out and the last release works, but has some issues. Can anyone let us know the status? CinemaVision is the best tool of it's kind - I'd be very sad to see it let go. Thanks!

    I struggled for a time trying to get this working, with a lot of help from DexDeadly, Ragnarok, and Winchy I got it working with authorization First using the postman plugin format a test url command such as Select get in the url header and below that under authorization select basic auth. Input your username and password. Select send to test if the command works. If it does press the </> button and it will generate the authorization hash. copy it into a HEADERS command such as this HEADERS: {"Authorization": "Basic= xxxxxxxxxxxx"} Note the spaces in the headers portion and the capitalization. These do matter. The 22222 would be a scene in the isy your controlling would turn scene 22222 off would turn scene 22222 on would turn scene 22222 to 50% brightness If you want to control modules directly the command needs %20 for any spaces in the url 2 2 1/cmd/DFON would be the url in a browser where 2 2 2 1 is module 2 2 2 to get it to work in the cvaction file the spaces must have %20 in them would turn on module 33 33 33 I hope this helps

    Ok. I made my preliminary tests and it works like a charm. I used the script I found in the thread below, but I modified the command parameters to switch between stereoscopic 3D mode off and stereoscopic 3D mode SBS, this way I can control exactly when I want the projector to switch between 2D and 3D modes. I can also modify this script for TAB movies, introducing a script to switch into 3D TAB mode immediately before the feature presentation.

    I found another script in thi forum wich turns on and off the refresh frequency feature in Kodi. I want to give it a try, because the lag problem is very much relates to frequency change. If I change the commands in that script, I think I could be able to control turning the 3D feature on and off.

    I think you're splitting hairs here and getting stuck on semantics. Nobody is blaming the Kodi team for upgrading to Python3.

    After checking the logs on a hunch I switched the color mode of the Amazon Fire TV to CMYK mode. Have now run the test sequence. All slides perfect, all intros and trailers run perfectly but bombs out at the feature start.

    are you sure all the slides are the same resolution ? if kodi is resizing it can cause that ..

    @bullwinkl I am happy to report that CV is working now! Albeit my old sequences aren't which is weird. The main culprit was the Cinemavision build. The one you shared in the link above is the proper one.

    I'm not a developer but I do dabble and I was able to install Kodi 19 (Matrix) stable in an ubuntu virtual machine and change some things to see Cinemavision boot. I was using the 1.1.1 version that I have running on my Kodi 18.0 machines as the base since I don't have any with the newer 1.1.1a10-a12. By changing some of the requirements, updating import paths, and changing some lines regarding decode("utf-8"), and updating the included_packages\hachoir to 3.1.3, it loaded and I was able to play a basic sequence that came with Cinemavision. It is far from being a successful upgrade and I don't know what else I broke getting it to run but there is hope! and it doesn't seem that impossible! I did this during a weekend so the real developers should be able to get something together quicker since they already understand the intricacies of their own coding and development better than I do!

    YOU ARE THE MAN!!! i have the same issue. i have been troubleshooting for about 5 hours trying to figure out what it is. i can only have a 6 character name. if i have a 7th character, it crashes with the same stack trace that you posted. i also have to do the save / change dance name thing. but the default script.cinemavision.default2D name works fine. the name / file name save is definitely wonky. the names showing in the app don't always match the names in the folder when looking at it in explorer. i'm gonna poke around in it tomorrow (today) after i wake up (i'm in texas) LOL. i'm a dev too! this is my first python project

    First, make sure you have the below version installed. https://cinemavision.tv/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=2857 When you run the content update, it will automatically create the file structures for you. You can then populate what you want in each directory, then create your sequences.

    If you don't mind can you be a little more specific of what you did and how you got it working again because I am still having issues.

    Many thx. The scanner dose not work on my side. Maybe because of I'm usinng an AD. I fixed this issue no by manuell editing the config and set the path to my server. Interessting is why CV is not using the normal Kodi interface (like Zero Conf) to determine the server in the network. Cheers and a happy new year Marco

    The two files here are the Vue Cinema's Pre Show bumper known as 'This Is Not A Cinema'. Perfect as a Theater Intro or placed just before and after the trailer. I also had the full video at 4K quality but at 318.2MB the upload kept failing. Sorry. Vue Cinema Pre Show H2.mkv Vue Cinema Pre Show H1.mkv

    Correct. This is how I have mine setup. My lights are 100%, start the sequence and they dim to 10% during the trailers, etc, then turn off when movie starts. They also turn back on to 10% when the movie is paused, then once movie is done and the sequence ends, they come back up to 100%. The action module won't be the issue, the integration of the API is what's going to take the most effort. Here's a video of my action sequence with lighting.

    That, I'm not sure about. For my newer trailers that I'm grabbing myself, I keep those in a separate folder and using the directory option as well. For the trailers I keep, I use the trailers option with those, using the kodi db as the primary source and I make sure I'm naming them properly. I also make sure I have the trailers folder set in Kodi to be a video source for movies so that it gets scanned into the kodi db. I'm not certain, but I think if you do it that way, CV can look at metadata for the trailer to determine genre/rating etc for matching movie rating and genre if you use those options. Seems to work for me. I'm also pretty sure CV will play trailers in the kodi db that aren't in that folder, but I've never tried it, since I don't keep movies in separate folders. Naming scheme for trailers is Movie Title (year)-trailer.ext Tombstone (1993)-Trailer.mp4 Tommy Boy (1995)-Trailer.mp4 No spaces on either side of the hyphen. Hope this is the info you need. I don't use conditional sequences or anything so I'm not a power user like some around here are, but I love the program so I help as much as I can.

    So I figured out the problem. I was setting up to generate a debug log, and CV worked fine. I turned debug logging off in KODI settings and it would not work as before, blank screen. Then I remembered all the same behavior we discussed in another thread when KODI 17.1 came out, which broke CV. It was after version 1.1.1a12 was posted in that thread did it start working for me. I had rebuilt my KODI box a few months back and I installed CV from the KODI repo thinking it was the latest and greatest. Fortunately I had a backup of 1.1.1a12, so I uninstalled the repo version and installed my backup. Vola! It works fine. I really think what is in the KODI repo is the wrong version, as it will not work for me.

    I'll go ahead and create a second torrent then just for CV stuff in that case. Makes it easier and if CV admins object I can just take it down on its own. Should be able to post that up here within the hour as well. --- Ok. So just going over again what I have. Here's a sheet of what all downloads were available from DemoWorld. Highlighted green files are what I was able to grab from The Wayback Machine and are included in the relevant torrent linked below. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1v65tOokgNaeRS0dDAXDZBbXtjpjEzqYEdxWWWtrQYUo/edit?usp=sharing CV video collection: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:UN7UNLNYOVPAH344PZYPQVYGTQEXBNLZ&dn=CinemaVision&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Fsantost12.xyz%3A6969%2Fannounce DemoWorld/DemoLandia/TheDigitalTheater collection: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:DPTM5Z6X5BJYAMGMZF4KRN3EHPLG3MTH&dn=HT_Demo_Videos&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Fsantost12.xyz%3A6969%2Fannounce I'll leave these up and seed as long as I can and these will remain on my NAS for the foreseeable future. If any admins/mods have any issues with this, please let me know and I'll remove/make changes as requested. The intent is merely to have reasonable backup copies and access to this stuff especially after the loss of DemoWorld.

    Hi OTA, you were right, the above mentioned problems only appear, when you use parenthesisi in the sequence names. Sequences withou can be safed, modified and safed again without these strange hickups. At least to my experience... @dyhometheaterguy: can you confirm? looks like you have your issues even without parentesis in the sequence names.
  40. 1 point
    I’ve had the same exact issue too. I thought it was just me. So basically if I make a sequence, save it, then edit or modify it and save as a new name, it keeps the existing sequence name and puts the new name in parentheses. Example: Sequence: Family Scope 5.1 New Sequence after I have modified it and saved it as a new file: Family Scope 5.1 (Family Scope Atmos)

    I think I'm good to go on my situation, happy for this issue to be marked as solved. Thanks OTA for your assistance.

    I am hoping to hear from some experts or anyone with any awesome tips to help me finish my setup. I have been working on this project (mostly the games) for about 6 years now and I would really like to wrap it all up here soon. I am using Kodi as my main front end that pulls from my Synology server running Plex and launches Hyperspin for my games. I will get into much more specific detail further down. PC: Moneual MonCaso 932 HTPC Case with 7" touch screen stock image Intel Core i7-6700K 8M Skylake Quad-Core 4.0 Corsair Hydro Series H75 CPU Water Cooler ASUS Z170 Ppr Gaming Motherboard G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 64GB (4 x 16GB) EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti (I HATE this POS) Samsung 850 EVO M.2 2280 250GB SATA III LG Black 16X Blu-Ray ReWriter w/ 3D Playback SERVER: Synology 3615xs 8x WD Red 8TB NAS Hard Disk Drives I used to have a Drobo (still do if anyone is interested in purchasing it with drives included 29TB total. $2,700) and I needed more storage so I moved up to the Synology device. Synology has a bunch of applications that you can run directly off the server that handles most anything. I recently learned about Docker and Linux containers which were a huge pain to setup the other day but now that it is all working it's great. The containers are a better way to run programs because they do not alter the Synology in any way and rather... run in a container. Anyways, I am running Radarr, Sonarr, Lidarr, LazyLibrarian, SABnzbd, and Plex off of the server currently. Working on trying to get Calibre and Lychee working currently. Here is a video of our setup. As you can see, the HTPC case is great for displaying console information and then game information. I set this up using HyperMarquee and EDS. My Hyperspin theme is AeonNox. I was helping to work on this theme but I was banned over at HS because I did not like the way the mods were treating paid members. Anyways... everything is finally working great and I am really happy about everything. As I mentioned, I have got into a lot of other projects since I was last here and one of those projects happens to be building a tiny home. You can read all about that here. Sasquatters We are planning on making it very modern inside and one of the things we would like to do is bring our home theater setup into the bus. We have a 64" curved Samsung right now but we will be down grading to something like a 32-36" Samsung but we have a screen and projector for watching movies on the rooftop deck. We also want to make it a smart home using the Synology as the main hub but this has not been looked into very much. So... Does anyone have any ideas or anything really that can help bring this setup to the next level? We have all of the hardware to make it happen, but just lack ideas. Perhaps there is nothing else we can do and we have reached the end? I hope not, I need more tech in my life! Hope to hear some great ideas.

    The Cinema Experience add-on has an option to download the trailer when it starts and it plays the trailer from the local copy. Could you add this to the CinemaVision add-on? I have relatively slow internet and can't stream 720p trailers. This feature works perfectly for me in the CE addon. BTW, the way you've implemented the sequence configuration is great. I'm looking forward to the final release.
