We're having some issues with PayPal at the moment that we're working through. We'll update everyone as soon as we have something useful. I hope to hear back from them in the morning. Until we get it resolved, nobody will be able to upgrade their account, or become a supporter. We're really sorry for the inconvenience.
Okay, this is the last one, I swear. Our developer found a huge bug in 0.0.41 that was marking iTunes trailers as broken, and that's fixed now. There's a setting to reset that in the Add-on Configuration > Advanced settings menu. I suggest all of you install the latest and then run that.
Well I know we just release 0.0.40 a few hours ago, but our developer is some kind of wizard and finished up 0.0.41 a few minutes ago. With it comes a host of changes, fixes and additions, all of which can be seen in the change log. I've also updated the Kodi thread with all of the new information, specifically concerning Actions, so if you use Actions, you need to go check it out. We've added a few things, like a sleep command inside of the action file, for example, that may be useful to you all. We've made some cosmetic changes to remove paths and replace them with simple names, and added the Sequences directory as well as some new functionality for sequence selection to CinemaVision.
We haven't heard many bug reports for 0.0.38, but we went ahead and fixed a few that we found. Also new to the fray, uploading logs to Pastebin via the add-on settings! If you don't have a Pastebin account, it will paste as a guest. If you do, put in your credentials and you'll get some more perks like being able to upload larger logs and uploading more often.
We've just released a new version that continues to squash bugs that have been brought to our attention. We also removed the log uploading via the Kodi Log Uploader script. The website, XBMCLogs.com, has been down for a while and isn't showing signs of coming back. We'll be adding in support for Pastebin in the next version. In the meantime, please use Pastebin to upload your logs manually. 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!
This is a themed pack of video bumpers that include the following scenes:

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.

The first CinemaVision Add-on Beta is up in the Downloads section of the site! Please test it out, and provide feedback. Don't forget to give us logs if you run into issues. Keep in mind, this isn't the finished build. There are some things that we're still working on. That said, it should be mostly functional. Enjoy!
As mentioned in the news article in July we’ve been working hard to fix and update many of our slide packs. Since then Gamephoenix has been working hard on getting the LeitMotif packs polished up. First to be released is the James Bond Collection, covering all 23 released films. We will be releasing these in order starting today with Dr. No. Every week we will be releasing the proceeding film’s slides all the way up to the much anticipated release of the film SPECTRE.
Here's another preview video for the CinemaVision Kodi Add-on! In this video, I go over some of the settings and features currently available in the Add-on. Watch the video below, and you'll see how close we are to a public beta
A little while ago, we decided that the old Classic and Vibrant decks looked a little bit tired and unprofessional. We think you all deserve professional quality content for use in your home theater, so we're making some changes. The trivia information was out of date, decks were incomplete, and the templates were just a little bit sloppy. We've learned a lot since then, and incorporated our new skills into all of the new templates that we'll be releasing. All of the data has been updated as of March, 2015 and the templates are being redesigned to look more sleek and professional, using key principals of graphic design.
First to the fray is the Vibrant deck. You all may remember the old Vibrant was just a more colorful version of the Classic deck. Now it's a completely different animal. Here are just a few examples, we hope you enjoy.

It's been a long time coming, but the dust has finally settled and we've opened the doors! We'd like to thank everyone who contributed and subscribed in the past, because they made everything you see here possible. We've been hard at work for the past several months moving hosts, moving domains, and setting up this new community website. Here's too much information, for those who are interested...
The Way We Were
When CinemaVision was still two separate projects (Cinema Experience Slides & Trivia, and HT SlideVision), both of those projects lived on Google web pages. When the bandwidth outgrew what Google gave us for free, we were forced to move to actual web hosting. We combined the two projects as CinemaVision and spin up a new website with the intention of making a singular space where all of the home theater preshow content that anyone made could live. It worked for a while, but some of you might remember all of the bandwidth limitation issues we were having with the website. As our membership and interest in what we're doing grew, we outgrew our hosting. This happened pretty regularly for about 5 months. On the old website, we were limited to using Google Drive to host all of our files, which created some confusion and has the potential to get very expensive as our content library grew. None of that is a problem anymore. For comparison sake, here are the specs on our old host:
10 gigabytes of bandwidth per month 1 gigabyte of locally hosted storage 60 gigabytes of Google Drive storage The Way We Are Now
Our partnership with EmuMovies paid off in a big, big way. Circo not only helped us design some of the new content that you see on this site, he also brought us (and several other community projects) into his hosting environment. Here are some of the specs of the new host:
50 terabytes of bandwidth per month 4 terabytes of locally hosted storage To top it all off, the storage can be scaled up as we grow, and every bit of it is backed up. The new website has a ton of new features including a support portal, billing details and history for any and all CinemaVision purchases, a full featured community forum and a new download section.
The support forums are all Question & Answer forums, where the best answer to a question will be marked and moved to the top of the forum so that it's easy to find an answer to a specific question. It's ever-evolving, but we think we've managed to build something that will last a long, long time.
In addition to all these new features, you'll notice that we're hosing a lot of new content. Please enjoy!
