    Is CinemaVision still being developed?

    Matt -- I don't think anyone is even looking for "soon" - I think folks are asking is there ever going to be an update to work with Kodi 18+ or has this project been abandoned like Cinema Experience once was. I'll hang on and keep checking in if someone could simply say "Yeah, Ragnarok is dealing with a lot of things, but he's told me that he WILL get back to this once things clear up." Up to now, it just seems like it's been left behind and that was all I was trying to get clarification on with my original post. Thanks for checking in Matt - it's appreciated.
  2. So throwing this out there in case there is some simple fix. Here is the error that is preventing CV 1.1.1a8 from running with the latest Kodi 18.1 -- from my log: 2019-03-06 11:03:12.846 T:59608 NOTICE: [- CinemaVision -]: Version: 1.1.1a8 2019-03-06 11:03:13.732 T:59608 NOTICE: [- CinemaVision -] (API): Rating Systems: 2019-03-06 11:03:13.732 T:59608 NOTICE: [- CinemaVision -] (API): MPAA: [G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17, NR] 2019-03-06 11:03:13.732 T:59608 NOTICE: [- CinemaVision -] (API): FSK: [18, 16, 12, 6, 0] 2019-03-06 11:03:13.732 T:59608 NOTICE: [- CinemaVision -] (API): DEJUS: [18 Anos, 16 Anos, 14 Anos, 12 Anos, 10 Anos, Livre] 2019-03-06 11:03:13.732 T:59608 NOTICE: [- CinemaVision -] (API): BBFC: [R18, 18, 15, 12, 12A, PG, U, Uc] 2019-03-06 11:03:13.935 T:34620 ERROR: Control 201 in window 13001 has been asked to focus, but it can't At that point, it just stops. An ESC will get you out - but it just hangs there with a black screen. This is Kodi Leia 18.1 64bit with Cinemavision 1.1.1a8 running on Windows 10 (although the same behavior can be observed on Firestick, FireTV and a Shield - I haven't looked, but assuming the same error.

    Is CinemaVision still being developed?

    Part of my reasoning for reaching out (beyond my own selfish reason of wanting the plugin to work again) is that maybe the developers/partners think that interest has waned because of the lack of interaction and updates on the site and in the Kodi forums. I just wanted to reassure, if anyone is listening, that we are all still very interested. Speaking for myself, I know that they sold "lifetime" memberships, but I'd be willing to pay another upgrade fee just to get it functioning with the latest Kodi. Otherwise, I guess I'll back down to Kodi 17.6 - I just don't know if that's possible, once the database has been upgraded. I've got the sneaking suspicion that I'd have to kind of start over and rescan everything from scratch - so I'm just hoping it doesn't come to that. If ANYone who monitors these boards have any knowledge of the status - please let us know. Thanks again...

    Exactly - no disrespect whatsoever towards the personal issues - Life, family, health, etc. are more important - but in the same way that Ragnarok took Cinema Experience over and turned it into CinemaVision - perhaps if he's no longer interested in development, someone could take CinemaVision over. At any rate - just some sort of update would be helpful to those of us that invested in this project, either financially or with their time creating the wonderful content. I'd really hate to have to go back to 17.6 if it's not necessary, just because there are some great features in the new version - plus it seems to run like lighting compared to the old one. It's just that CinemaVision takes a typical home cinema to an elevated level that I'd like to hold on to if at all possible. Thanks OTA - and thanks board moderators for listening.
  5. There doesn't seem to have been any definitive answer given to this. I read that the developer was dealing with some personal issues, but there has never been any update. Kodi 18.1 is out and the last release works, but has some issues. Can anyone let us know the status? CinemaVision is the best tool of it's kind - I'd be very sad to see it let go. Thanks!

    Volume control on bumpers

    Thanks! Looking forward to it!

    Module skip?

    I'm going to try a Bluetooth keyboard paired with the Fire. Then if no luck - guess I'll roll up my sleeves and start looking at key mapping. Thanks for the wiki!

    Good thought. I use passthrough for my Denon - so that's very possible. Unfortunate if that's the case but understandable.

    Module skip?

    As a follow up - i read this is possible with a keyboard. Doesn't appear to be something programmed for the ATV remote. Maybe the option key? It doesn't appear to have a function during trivia.

    Volume control on bumpers

    Video volume control doesn't seem to work with some modules. Intros and outros still play at full volume regardless of the settings in the sequence or the defaults in the config -- while trivia plays at the setting in the config and trailers play at the volume set in the sequence. Audio bumpers work. As well as features. Any ideas?

    Module skip?

    Is there a key on my FireTV I can press to skip a module while the sequence is running? For example -- it would be nice to set up a trivia module to run for say 20 minutes - so that I can decide when people are settled and then hit a key and move forward with the sequence. Is this possible? If not, would be a great addition.

    Turn off Title Popup while playing

    I'm using XConfluence by Echo Coder - but found a toggle in the skin settings under general - media settings - turn off OSD on video start. That knocked it out. Thanks for your response!
  13. I'm wondering if there is a way to disable the information popup that shows the title of the video playing to give this much more of a cinema feel. I'm not sure if this is something in Kodi or something that is at the skin level. As an example, when an intro plays, a little popup comes up at the bottom of the screen telling the title, then trivia, then as the trivia outro plays - another popup. It also does this on every trailer - basically, every time video plays. If you need more info or screen shots - let me know. Thanks in advance!
