    Has the site been hacked?

    Thanks for pointing that out. The site wasn't hacked. The is the text that we use when designing something. It should have been removed before going live. It should display properly now. Thanks again.
  2. 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.
  3. I hope that you are doing ok and have recovered from your wreck. Let us know how the movie night goes.
  4. Here are the US's MPAA ratings values: NR = 1000 NC_17 = 170 R = 160 PG_13 = 130 PG = 120 G = 0
  5. 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.

    First automation , need help

    They could interfere, depending on what you set them to do. CinemaVision won't work if you aren't using it, so the Hue add-on is your best bet if you want it to work the same whether you are using CinemaVision or not. I don't use Hue lights, so I can't give you specific help. But here is a little info on how I have my system set up. I have an action that runs just before my trailers start playing that dims the lights over a 5 minute span. The lights should be typically out before the main feature starts. If I had the Hue addon set up and had it turn off the lights when the main feature started it wouldn't need to do anything because the lights were already off. But if I didn't use CinemaVision it would then turn off the lights at the start of the movie. So it really depends on what exactly you want your system to do.

    The guide here is just for use with CinemaVision. There is an add-on that should work for you. Here are a couple of links to get you started: https://hotstickybun.com/hardware/how-to-setup-and-use-phillips-hue-lights-with-kodi/ https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=145178 https://github.com/mpolednik/script.kodi.hue.ambilight

    Here is a link to the Hue Guide: Hopefully this will help get you started. Post back if you have further questions.
  10. I don't normally use that skin, but cinemavision launched fine for me when I installed it. Have you configured CV? If you have issues getting CV to work, let me know more about your issues and I'll do what I can to help.
  11. Are you using the latest version on MQ7? I just downloaded it from the link below and it has a cinemavision button. https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=329255 Let me know if I am not looking at the right thing.

    downloading zip files

    Are you trying to download or install the zip file? I have my shield shared on my network. I then download the files on my computer and copy them to the shield's hard drive. If you don't have that you can also use ES File Explorer: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.estrongs.android.pop&hl=en Here is the kodi how to guide if you are try install files already on the shield: https://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO:Install_add-ons_from_zip_files Let me know if you need additional help.
