  1. I don't know if this helps or not - here is what I found after some testing - if I set it to: sleep://1000 It works - I get a one second pause and then the next command executes. I did a radical color change so I could see what was going on. Anything above that (e.g. sleep://10000) and I still get a 1 second pause. It's almost like the coding for the "test" mode is stuck - that it's converting whatever one puts into the command to 1000 ms.
  2. No, CinemaVision wants it in the protocol://protocol data format (see attachment) - unless you're suggesting that the parser build into CinemaVision needs to be modified?
  3. Jens - I tried your sleep://##### function in my own scripts - and definitely got an error in the log - so I'd say you're correct - python seems to be having an issue with parsing the sleep command in the action.
  4. Yeah - I don't use any pauses like that - here's mine: http://10.0.0.XX/api/xxxxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxxx/groups/4/action PUT:{"on":false,"transitiontime":30} http://10.0.0.XX/api/xxxxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxxx/groups/1/action PUT:{"on":true,"sat":0,"bri":60,"hue":10000,"transitiontime":30}
  5. Hey Jens -- Running Kodi 19.3 on an NVidia ShieldTV with CV and the pause action works for me. It's pretty simple - I'm just having it do a PUT to my theater lights (Philips Hues) with a long transistion from black to 60% light. Mine doesn't use the sleep command, so perhaps you are asking about that specifically - but for just pausing the movie and bringing up the lights - it's working for me.
    Just updated to Kodi 19.2 and took the opportunity to install Cinemavision 1.5 beta to give it a test drive since I've been running without it since 19 came out. It took a little tweaking (my sequences are pretty complex - including a bunch of actions for automated lighting and curtains) on my part to get it going. I tried with a couple of my existing sequences and just got a black screen. This previously has been caused by the "music" part of the trivia module (generally, the playlist no longer exists) but that wasn't the case here. I also tried to import an old sequence as opposed to loading -- in the end, I just wrote down the sequence and rebuilt from scratch. Just including these steps in case it helps others. After creating the sequence from scratch, it worked great. I'd second @MidnightWatcher's comment on selectable Trivia folders -- and/or have them based on the criteria. I'm very glad to have this back - it truly makes all of the difference in the world when it comes to the home cinema experience. Great work and huge hat tip to @Matt and @DexDeadly for keeping this project alive. Your work is very much appreciated! One other request (maybe bug - I'm not sure, because I may be remembering wrong) - I thought that the context menu showed up if you pulled up the context menu on one of the posters on the main screen under the "recently added" section. This would be nice to just select based on the movie posters that your audience sees, rather than needing to drill down in the MOVIES menu, then select the context menu from the movie you select. Presently, that's the only place I see the Cinemavision context item. Also - does anyone know if any of the old .pls playlists for the trivia module still work? I found it really convenient to just set the trivia up with one of those where you're not having to worry about the length of time it plays. According to the logs - they error out with "can't be found" - so if there is something I'm missing or we could update the .pls files - that would just be a plus. Thanks again!!
  6. Rdsp will likely be able to help you out. Just be patient - this isn’t anyone’s “job” - so it may be a few days. Curious why you use RS-232 instead of hdmi to trigger the power up?
  7. This is the exact configuration I’m running. No issues.
  8. I'd be interested in giving the tags a go - OTA - can you provide a sample of how you tagged your ATMOS files?
  9. Whatever is included in the NVidia Shield experience updates. I’m running the latest. I believe it’s “9.0 Pie” if that helps.
  10. Hey RDSP -- I'm a bad community member - kind of left this whole upgrade thing set aside because my system was working well and I was kinda nervous to screw it all up and have to try to figure out how to go back. Short story: IT COULDN'T HAVE WORKED BETTER!!! Congrats, sir. You've really nailed this! Here is my situation in case it applies to anyone else. I'm working on a NVidia Shield TV - 2018 (I think? - It's not the newest, newest, but one step up from the original if I remember correctly.) 1. I had Kodi 18.1 with the original 1.1.1a8 from Ragnorak - and it was working flawlessly - including some really complicated lighting automation as well. I had shut off the Google Store auto-update to keep it safe. 2. Last weekend I decided to bite the bullet - went into the app settings for Kodi and chose to update - the system installed v18.4 from the Google Play Store over the top of my Kodi 18.1 and left CV 1.1.1a8 in place. 3. I downloaded CV 1.1.1a12 - and did an install from ZIP -- overwriting the old version (in other words, I never uninstalled anything - neither Kodi nor CV.) I also didn't reload anything else. Left my original sequences in place. 4. Went to a movie and selected the CV button and held my breath. PERFECTION! Every module played and worked EXACTLY as it should. No hiccups, no black screens, no issues. Sorry for being late in getting back to you - but congratulations all the same. You've brought our beloved CV back to life! And I for one couldn't be more appreciative! Cheers!
  11. The only issue I ran into was that I had changed the transition times in my trivia module. When I put them back to defaults it all started working.
  12. I have it running on a Win10 PC on Kodi 18.4 and it runs through my whole sequence including Philips Hue actions. No problem. Haven’t been brave enough to move it onto my Shield yet - which is still running 18.0 with the original dev version.
  13. Well, look at you with your "Developer" badge... I'll give it a go on the Shield when I get my theater back in order - did a little shuffling of equipment, so everything is in pieces in the middle of the room until I rearrange. I am certainly glad to hear about Ragnarok - it's the first word that he's actively keeping an eye here! Thanks rdsp - I honestly think that with you stepping up to help out, it's brought this project back to life!
  14. So a couple of things. The issue with the trivia was on a Windows 10 PC - not the Shield. And as soon as I reset the module to all defaults - if worked. Now, I could manipulate the fade duration and see what happens. I still remember the settings that were “bad.” In regards to the Shield, I can wait for the context menu - anyone who is still involved with CinemaVision has plenty of patience - so that’s no biggie. That said, I may go ahead and give it a go - with ADBLink it’s short work to restore if it just doesn’t function. Glad to hear about the domain and content - anything you’d like to share with the rest of the class?
