    I have a Shield and confirm that the CV link shows up in the context menu for Estuary. My movies are also played off of a NAS. The Shield doesn't have any additional requirements for CV and it should work the same as a standard install on other devices. The first thing to check is if you have the context menu installed. Go into the settings for CV click the link as seen in the following image. Let me know if that works.

    Here are the US's MPAA ratings values: NR = 1000 NC_17 = 170 R = 160 PG_13 = 130 PG = 120 G = 0

    As someone who's gone through and changed just about everything in their Kodi library to support the Australian Classification System, it's pretty upsetting to find out that CinemaVision only supports a handful of rating systems. I'm sure i'm not the only one who'd like support for the Australian Rating system, to make their experience much better if they live in Australia like I do. For those who don't know, the Australian Rating system is as follows: AU:G AU:PG AU:M AU:MA15 AU:R18 AU:X18 I've gone through skins I have downloaded and managed to modify the Variables.xml to allow for the AU system, and this is typically as simple as changing Australia to AU, and changing the 'IsEqual' to 'Contains' for R18 and MA15, as they both have a + symbol that Kodi doesn't seem to like. I'm more than a little confused as to how I'd even go about editing CinemaVision to have this support though. With the support, we'd be able to have our own custom bumpers that match our Classification System. Not to mention, I feel like this is also why whenever I set the Trailers to match the feature, the trailers are suddenly skipped, because my movies aren't matching the 'MPAA:' rating that CinemaVision is expecting. Some movies are rated one thing here and another thing in the US, so a film that's been rated PG-13 in the US (to which our equivalent is M) might just be rated PG here. So it's not as simple as changing the images to look like Australia ratings when in reality CV is reading it as the MPAA rating. Thanks for taking the time read, and hopefully we can get some traction going on this!

    Thing first thing that you need to make sure about is that the file's audio is actually in 5.1 or whatever it says it is. I just downloaded a few clip to test my suggestion below and noticed that the audio was only in stereo for a few files, despite being listed as 5.1. The easiest way that I know to do this is with handbrake, https://handbrake.fr/ You can go to/from mkv without converting it to something else. In the Picture tab just change the size to 1920x818, with keep aspect ratio unselected. In the video tab, move the quality slider all the way to the right at placebo quality. In the audio tab make sure that the mixdown is set to 5.1. You can also batch all the videos in a folder. Let me know if this works for you, or if you have any questions.

    BTW, if you have your shield on your local network and want to be able to browse to it from a Windows machine or via Samba, then you have to have Plex Media Server enabled and then go to Storage & Reset settings and enable Over Local Network. I learned this the hard way because I had the Plex Media Server app disabled and no longer had the setting.

    Hi, and welcome! There will be multiple guides, but they are all located here: https://cinemavision.tv/guides If you still have questions, feel free to post.

    I would start at the configuration guide. Should answer a lot of your questions and get you up and going before you really jump into customizing your sequences.

    Hey there! This is a feature we'll be adding to the CinemaVision Service add-on soon. Originally, we'd planned to add it in to the main add-on, but the Kodi team asked us to split that function out into a Service add-on. It was a requirement to get CinemaVision added to the official Kodi repository. There's not a clean way to do it manually, unfortunately. I expect the CinemaVision Service add-on to be release with CinemaVision 1.1.1 in the coming weeks.

    I thank all of the developers for their effort and I was able to replicate my setup from Cinema Experience (Gotham) to Cinemavision. I was able to control Philips Hues individually with the API. I really love this addon and this is the only add on worth paying for IMO. So I stumbled on this site 3 days ago and joined as a lifetime member to further develop my home movie/automation integrtation. I only have one wish which I already open a ticket for it. As I love watching traiers before the movie I can no longer do this without hitting C or I and select PLAY or Cinema (I also modified the PLAY to call Cinemavision on same window) But, the issue with this is that I have an Ipad mounted on the wall next to the door to my home theater with a Kodi remote app and I like to have anyone who uses it to be able to watch trailers too but they are not tech savvy to know where the CV menu is. I am hopeful that this is a very easy task if someone can guide me what to look for. Thanks

    Been a while but I started working on Star Wars: Last Jedi. I don't have the kind of free time I used to so it may take a while. In the mean time I did upload some Force Awaken Triavia Movies I put together a while ago. They have some nice music with custome transitions.

    No, though Audiosphere is similar to Nature's Fury. I was able to find a version of it after dyhometheaterguy got the name. https://thedigitaltheater.com/index.php/dolby-trailers/ (mods, not sure what the rules are about links around here, remove if inappropriate) Even with only 4 Atmos channels, it still has some of the best separation I've heard in my theater. Granted, nothing will replace the original THX chord for pure awesomeness, but this has become my new second favorite.

    Since the March update the CinemaVision add-on was behaving relatively well, however with the OSMC April update released a few days ago for the Vero 4K, the movie trailers often play with a black screen only, though the audio is playing fine. I noticed that if I touch anything on the remote that activates the GUI (for example, the progress bar, player process information, player debug, etc) that the video will immediately appear. For a bit of context in terms of what I have CinemaVision doing, here is how I have my sequences set up. In the sequence: A json command is first sent to the Vero 4K to set ADJUST DISPLAY REFRESH RATE to OFF. (This is to eliminate the time it takes for my projector to sync up between each trailer/video bumper. All trailers are downloaded from hd-trailers.net). Next, trivia slides are shown with a movie soundtrack (mp3) playing in the background. When it's time for trailers I’ll select Next on the remote to continue the sequence, which then reduces the lighting and begins playback of the queue of movie trailers (the ones I download are always 1080p @ 23.976 fps, AAC stereo). The refresh rate of my projector will stay at 59.94, as it should. At this point the screen will go black, as it should, just before playing the first movie trailer but will instead stay black while the trailer plays. (Sometimes the first trailer will play fine, but then when the screen goes black after the first trailer ends it will stay black until I manually engage the GUI to “awaken” it). I noticed that unless I bring up something manually on the screen it will tend to stay a black/blank screen while playing the remaining trailers and video bumpers in the file list, however when it gets to the json command (immediately before the main feature) to switch the ADJUST DISPLAY REFRESH RATE setting to ON START / STOP that the main feature will usually play fine once the projector syncs up. Not sure if a log would help since the sequence in actually running from beginning to end, only I can't see the trailers and bumpers, but here is the OSMC/KODI log: https://paste.osmc.tv/obojosujas Any idea what could be happening? Is there a way to have CinemaVision tell the screen to “wake up” or "silently" activate the GUI before each video in a list/queue is about to be played?

    Hi Many thanks, it was a mistake. I had the wrong Speaker Setup. I also changed my AVR and I had the wrong Speaker Setup. Now its showing Atmos on the Display. BR Massimo

    Yes, the Shield TV does support Atmos. You have to enable Passthrough/Bitstreaming on it as well as in Kodi. On the Sield TV, it is Settings > Display & Sound > Advanced > Fixed Volume

    I don't have a Shield but a quick online search indicates that it should. Which Shield are you using and what is the firmware revision?
  20. 1 point
    I tried a lot of other options and in my setup they all seemed to have issues in some area. The shield has been rock solid for me since the day I installed it. I highly recommend it.

    I will try to help you the best that I can. For the action files that you downloaded, you will need to edit them so they will work with Hue. Save the files somewhere where Kodi can have access to them. I have mine in a folder called "actions" which is in a folder with the rest of CV folders and files. The first thing you will need to do is find the ip address of the Hue Hub. You can use this to find the ip address of the hub. https://www.meethue.com/api/nupnp Once you get your ip address you will need to go here http://<bridge ip address>/debug/clip.html Change <bridge ip address> to the address of your hub. For example This will open the Hue API page for your hub. On the Hue Hubs API page, you will see a line labeled "URL", make sure it says /api On the line labeled "Message Body" put in {"devicetype":"newuser"} Then push the link button on the Hue Hub. Within 30 seconds of pushing that, click on the button labeled "Post" on the Hubs API webpage. In the "Command Response" box you should get something that looks like this [ { "success": { "username": "IvLrovGs3so2zSIortEfEPYcH8dr8uJWR1k2trDL" } } ] Save the generated username in a text document, you will need it again. In this example my generated username is IvLrovGs3so2zSIortEfEPYcH8dr8uJWR1k2trDL. Now go back to the line labeled "URL" and change it to say /api/Genrated User Name Goes Here/groups Put your generated username where it says "Generated User name goes Here" Should look like this /api/IvLrovGs3so2zSIortEfEPYcH8dr8uJWR1k2trDL/groups Now click on the Get button, this will give you a response that will list your groups. If you don't have any groups you can create one in the Hue app on your phone. Groups will make it easier to control multiple hue bulbs at one time. Now open one of the cv action files so you can edit it. I am going to use Hue Trivia Lights for my example. You should a line in there that looks like this. http://<hue-bridge-ip>/api/<hue-bridge-user>/groups/<hue-light-group>/action PUT:{"on":true,"sat":255,"bri":160,"hue":10000,"transitiontime":30} Change the <hue-bridge-ip> to the ip address of the hue hub. Change the <hue-bridge-user> to the generated username we made. Change the <hue-light-group> to the name of the group you want to use. You should now have something that looks like this PUT:{"on":true,"sat":255,"bri":160,"hue":10000,"transitiontime":30} Save the file. Now go to Kodi and open the CV addon and open it. It should go to the screen you can set up the sequence. On mine, the first one is "Trivia action". Select edit and change the file path so it points to the file we just saved. Click on "Test" after you tell it where the file is at. If everything works correctly you should see your lights dim and get a new window that opens up and has a green "OK" which means the test worked. You can select no to "run abort action". It won't work until you set that up. Repeat the editing of the files for the rest of the actions you want to set up. After you save the files be sure to update the path locations for them in the CV addon. By using the actions files with CV you will not need any other addons to control your Hue lights when you use CV addon to watch movies. If you have problems or questions please ask and I will do my best to answer them,

    Finally got my CinemaVision sequences (both 2D and 3D) just right. Thank you to the entire CinemaVision team for working on this superb piece of software. I'm very happy with the result. Below is how my 2D sequence looks. Since we live on McCoy Ave., we've branded our home theater "The McCoy Miniplex" (and you'll see references to The McCoy Miniplex throughout the pre- and post-show). Also, for the purposes of this demo, I removed the "trailer" and "feature" and replaced them with a still placeholder image indicating where they would go:

    No worries, let me know how this looks: I took a look at the government site and took the gradient from there. Let me know what should change, like if I should do flat black instead of a gradient, or use a different font or location for "This film has been rated".
