    I have created some cvactions for my Home Assistant home automation system that work with my CinemaVision. I thought somebody else might get some use out of them. I was going to add them to the downloads section but the Create feature seems to be broken. Maybe an admin can do that for me? -Hoobie7 Movie_Start.cvaction Movie_Stop.cvaction

    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.

    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.

    Well, the thing is we don't really have a rating bumper before the movies in theaters, but we do have bumpers before trailers. These can be seen in this playlist I found here: The first 6 videos represent what we see in theaters, from G, PG, M, MA, R and CTC, which is more common than the rest. This is the closest thing we have to ratings bumpers in theaters, however I noticed in this same playlist other custom bumpers someone had made for their own home theater. Happy to have a go at making my own little bumper in photoshop but it's just the backend stuff in terms of adding the ratings to CV that i'm not too sure on how to do, wasn't too sure what to do with the values in the rating xml, but hopefully you get a good idea of what the OFLC looks like with these 6 videos

    We're actually pretty modular when it comes to ratings. We associate a foreign rating system with MPAA using an XML file that tells CinemaVision how to behave. This is the XML for the British BBFC ratings: <system name="BBFC"> <region>GB</region> <rating value="185">R18</rating> <rating value="180">18</rating> <rating value="150">15</rating> <rating value="125">12</rating> <rating value="120">12A</rating> <rating value="80">PG</rating> <rating value="0">U</rating> <rating value="0">Uc</rating> </system> It should be pretty easy for us to add in the Australian rating system. The biggest downfall we have is coming up with ratings videos. Do you happen to have examples of what you all see in theaters? If you do, I'll put together some ratings cards and we'll get the format added. If you have 1080p full resolution videos of the bumpers, that's even better.

    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.

    These MPAA ratings videos mimic the style that has been used by the MPAA since the early 1980's, featuring a classic green background.

The following ratings are included in this set: G: All ages admitted.PG: Parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.PG-13: Parents strongly cautioned.

    These DEJUS ratings videos were created to mimic the appearance of the DEJUS website. We could find no examples to base this template on, so this set was created entirely from scratch. The files marked with (3DSBS) are 3D Side-by-side versions of the rating cards, for your 3D movies. The following ratings are included in this set: L: Livre: General Audiences.10: Não recomendado para menores de dez anos: Not recommended for minors under ten.12: Não recomendado para menores de doze anos: Not recommended for minors under twelve.14: Não recomendado para menores de catorze anos: Not recommended for minors under fourteen.16: Não recomendado para menores de dezesseis anos: Not recommended for minors under sixteen.18: Não recomendado para menores de dezoito anos: Not recommended for minors under eighteen.

    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 http://192.168.1.124/debug/clip.html 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 http://192.168.1.124/api/IvLrovGs3so2zSIortEfEPYcH8dr8uJWR1k2trDL/groups/Theater/action 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:

    Hey there! We have plans to include aspect ratio (and some other things) into the Commands Module, so you will be able to play specific bumpers or run specific actions based on aspect ratio very easily in the future. We plan to add those features in during our next round of development which will begin soon. Currently, you would have to write a Python script that queries Kodi to find the aspect ratio of your feature presentation, and then sends the command to your Lightmanager Air accordingly. You could then call that script via the Action Module.
