    We've just released a new version that continues to squash bugs that have been brought to our attention. This one actually contains more extensive error logging, and it can now upload logs using the Kodi Log Uploader script. You'll need to make sure that's installed separately, though. Please get to testing, and let us know how it works out! We'd like to put a special call out to anyone who has a home automation solution. We haven't got the ability to test it all, so please test it and let us know your feedback, and even post your working scripts to the forum. We'd appreciate it!

I'm running this on a Raspberry Pi B and the latest Isengard. Thanks to installing that I was able to find this plugin when I couldn't get the old Cinema Experience.

You also get a dedicated subwoofer channel, for plenty of deep bass. This format has several different names: Dolby Digital DD (an abbreviation for Dolby Digital, often combined with channel count; for instance, DD 2.0, DD 5.1) AC-3 (Audio Codec 3, Advanced Codec 3, Acoustic Coder 3.

    These are some examples of actions files that work with Kodi to control various settings from within your sequence. You'll need to configure Kodi to allow control via HTTP in order to use them. Available Actions Action File Description Kodi-EnableAddOn.cvaction Use this to enable a specific add-on by add-on ID. Kodi-DisableAddOn.cvaction Use this to disable a specific add-on by add-on ID. Kodi-EnableRefreshRateSync.cvaction Use this to enable the refresh rate sync setting in Kodi. Kodi-DisableRefreshRateSync.cvaction Use this to disable the refresh rate sync setting in Kodi.

    This is more of a how to than an answer to the question. How I Got My Hue System To Work With CinemaVision or... For us who ain't tech savy... 1) Make sure your bridge is connected to your network and functioning properly. 2) In your browser go to www.meethue.com/api/upup this will tell you the internalipaddress of your bridge. It will be in a format similar to or 3) Next go to http://<internalipaddress>/debug/clip.html 4) In the URL type /api 5) In the Message Body type {"devicetype":"CinemaVision"} 6) Press the button on your bridge. 7) Click on Post. 8) You will get a long jumbled string of characters after the word username. Copy that string, its your username. 9) Use the username and your internalipaddress in the cvaction files. To change a group of lights, use http://<internalipaddress>/api/<username>/groups/1/action PUT:{"on":true,"bri":32,"sat":254,"hue":47000,"transitiontime":30} Change the /1/ to the group of lights you want to control. Changing it to /0/ will control all your lights. 10) If you want to control a single light, use http://<internalipaddress>/api/<username>/lights/1/state PUT:{"on":true,"bri":32,"sat":254,"hue":47000,"transitiontime":30} Change the /1/ to what ever number bulb you want to control. Hue Basic Colors: 0 = Red 12750 = Yellow 25500 = Green 46920 = Blue 56100 = Purple 65280 = Red

    Hopefully this is handy to others. I needed 5 seconds of black to ease in my abrupt theater intro video, 1 & 2 seconds of black for some transitions, and 5 minutes of black to wander over and turn off the projector before the Kodi screen appears. The files are 1080p @ 23.976fps to match most films. For what it's worth, they were encoded x264, 3Mbps, Main@5.1.

    Yes, I do it with my projector. All you need to do is simply insert a CV action file at the very beginning of the sequence to disable "Adjust Display Refresh Rate" and then insert a CV action file just before the main feature module to enable it. You can download both CV action files here. Save them to your CinemaVision --> Actions folder. To disable the refresh rate sync, insert a CV action and point to the file called "Kodi-DisableRefreshRateSync.cvaction" which contains the code below. Note: You'll need to edit the file (I recommend Notepad++) so that it matches the IP address of your device (which you can find on KODI's Info screen) and port of your device (found in System --> Services --> Web Server). In my case, for example, I need to use for one device and on another: # Turn off refresh rate sync http://<your-ip>:<your-port>/jsonrpc {"jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "Settings.SetSettingValue", "params": {"setting": "videoplayer.adjustrefreshrate", "value": 0}, "id": 1} To enable the refresh rate sync, insert a CV action and point to the file called "Kodi-EnableRefreshRateSync.cvaction" which contains the code below. Edit this one as well to match your IP address and port: # Turn on refresh rate sync http://<your-ip>:<your-port>/jsonrpc {"jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "Settings.SetSettingValue", "params": {"setting": "videoplayer.adjustrefreshrate", "value": 2}, "id": 1} Save your CV sequence. Tip: Go into KODI's settings and ensure "Adjust Display Refresh Rate" is enabled first before playing the CV sequence, otherwise the sequence could fail with a CV action telling KODI to disable the refresh rate sync if it's already off. Once you've made sure it's enabled, reboot KODI for good measure and then try running the sequence. It should play all video bumpers and trailers seamlessly at the default 60Hz without interruption and then switch to 1080/24p for the main feature. It'll take a few seconds of course as the projector syncs up with the video, but that can't be changed. I have KODI set to pause for four seconds while syncing so that I won't miss much of the studio logo at the beginning of the feature. Good luck!

    This version adds a ton of functionality, fixes a few bugs, and changes the way we do some things. We now clean up streaming trailers when they're unavailable, and you can also determine how the trailers play by giving priority to new trailers, or even randomizing the trailers completely. Also new to this version is the ability to decide what the resume action should be. You can execute a specific action, or execute the last action that was run (to automatically set your scene back to its previous state). We did change some of the guts in this version, so we recommend a complete reinstall and configure from scratch. You're more than welcome to back up your userdata\addon_data\script.cinemavision directory just in case you need to roll back. Most sequences should be fine, with minimal modification, but some settings from older versions that no longer exist will need to be changed if you do not start from scratch. I've left the download of 0.0.47 up, because our developer is going to be at the Kodi DevCon until Sunday, and won't be available for bug fixes until next week. Please test out the new version, and let me know if you find bugs. If it's totally unusable for you, submit a log and reinstall 0.0.47.

    A regular TV has a aspect ratio of 16x9. If you watch scope content you have black bars on the top and bottom. The following image shows the comparison between 4x3, 16x9 and 21x9(which is close to 2.25:1/ A scope screen has a wider aspect ratio, typically 2.35 or 2.4. A regular TV has a constant width. With a scope screen you want a constant height. Things aren't really made for that though. If I am watching a scope film on my projector it will fill the screen. If I then switch to watch TV the projector will show the full height, which will go off of my screen and onto the wall. I then have to adjust the lens on my projector to change the zoom so that it makes the image smaller so that the height will be full frame. Of you look at the green middle row in the above image you can see how a 16x9 image will look if it is set to the proper image height with the image on the left. The image in the middle shows more or less how much it goes off the screen if I don't adjust it. If I am watching a 16x9 or close to that aspect ration everything else will either fill the screen vertically or display smaller, like the top center image. But if I am watching a scope film then everything that is 16x9 goes off the screen. I wish there was a system that would recognize what the video was and would display it properly with a constant image height so that I didn't need to do anything. But that doesn't exist yet. Current gen Blu-rays still encode everything at 16x9 1080p so that the black bars are part of the media stream. There are some movies that change aspect ratios, which is a nightmare for people that want constant image height. Nolan uses some IMAX scenes in his Batman movies. Here are examples of the scope and IMAX sections. You can see that the second image goes off the screen. When adding bumpers or trivia I have to go in and change all of it before I show it unless I want to stop everything and hit my lens memory as the movie starts. It isn't a huge deal, but it does require me to change it and I'm usually trying to get settled in about this time or making sure all my guests have everything they need when the movie starts. So I often go in and edit any trailers and trivia so that if will display properly. I am getting a new processor next week that will chop off the top and bottom of the videos. This can work for the majority of trailers without too much issue, but it completely destroys trivia slides since the content is often going off the screen.. My apologies to the topic starter for going so far off topic.

    Hey everyone! It's been a while since our last update, but we've been hard at work. The website has been updated, and more features are coming including a completely rewritten Guides application and much more. If you see anything that looks out of place, please let us know. We're hard at work getting the CinemaVision Service Add-on ready for it's debut development release. Right out of the gate, it will have the two most requested features: Automatic content updates on a schedule The ability to schedule a Sequence for a specific time/date We're still working on the main add-on as well, and new features are coming soon. In addition to all of that (and some I haven't mentioned), we're planning several new trivia decks and video sets right now, and expect to release them before the end of the year. Please don't hesitate to give us your feedback on the new website, and enjoy!

    Digital Light Processing (DLP) is a display device based on micro-electro-mechanical technology that uses a digital micromirror device. It was originally developed in 1987 by Dr. Larry Hornbeck of Texas Instruments. While the DLP imaging device was invented by Texas Instruments, the first DLP-based projector was introduced by Digital Projection Ltd in 1997. Digital Projection and Texas Instruments were both awarded Emmy Awards in 1998 for the DLP projector technology. DLP is used in a variety of display applications from traditional static displays to interactive displays and also non-traditional embedded applications including medical, security, and industrial uses.

    zxro, give this possible solution a try and let us know if it helps. It basically turns off refresh rate matching at the very beginning of the CV sequence and then enables it immediately prior to the feature.

    This already works, if you point the trivia music to a folder it will randomly pick out tracks from that folder.

    I think I'm going to take some snippets out of this to make some bumpers.
