  1. CV has been updated to include the latest round of fixes.

    Check Apect ratio?

    I would love to see aspect ratios integrated into CV, but I don't think it will happen. ☹️
  3. I have created a new version of the CV add-on to include the change by @rdsp. I will update the file when other issues are resolved.
  4. Version 1.1.1.a9


    This version includes the fix for Kodi 18.1+ by rdsp. This fix may help some people use CV.

    Kodi Leia 18.1 with 1.1.1a8 Error

    There is nothing new that I can share right now.

    can't get it to run, help?

    There are issues with CV and 18.1. You will unfortunately have to downgrade if you want to use CV.

    Is CinemaVision still being developed?

    CV is Ragnarok's baby. There are other people that help support the site or content, but Ragnarok is the person in charge of the development. We just play a role in support. I Wish I could say that we'll have a new version out soon. There are people that support CV in various ways, even if life has gotten in the way.

    KODI v18 Support?

    I don't think v18.1 support is right around the corner. If you want to use CV I recommend downgrading for the time being.

    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.
  10. 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.
  11. I hope that you are doing ok and have recovered from your wreck. Let us know how the movie night goes.
  12. Here are the US's MPAA ratings values: NR = 1000 NC_17 = 170 R = 160 PG_13 = 130 PG = 120 G = 0
  13. 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.
