  1. 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.
  2. I hope that you are doing ok and have recovered from your wreck. Let us know how the movie night goes.
  3. Here are the US's MPAA ratings values: NR = 1000 NC_17 = 170 R = 160 PG_13 = 130 PG = 120 G = 0
  4. 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.

  9. 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.

    New Atmos Bumper

    What happened in the video? I've seen a few atmos videos that could match that description. Are there any specific shots in it that you recall? Is it an Infinity War specific video?

    Suggested Player for Kodi & CV

    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.

    If you have the time, feel free to share a link to your video intro. I love seeing what people are doing with their movie watching experience.
  18. Momo03, I'm sorry to hear that you are having issues getting things started. Are you using a PC or something else to run Kodi/CinemaVision? I'll send you a message to discuss more details and will be happy to do whatever I can to help you get it running.

    Is Android supported?

    If you scroll down a page the menu will stay at the top of the page. If you want to get to the search without scrolling to the top of the page click "Help" in the menu to open a dropdown menu. Then click search to go to the search page.
  24. Looking good @Synthesis. I always enjoy reading build threads. What do you think of SmartThings? Will you do any sort of elevated platform for the second row of seats.
