  1. I had an opportunity to make the edits @rdsp provided on LibreELEC on an Odriod C2 and it's working... mostly. I don't use any kind of trivia, etc. as my kids aren't patient enough for that, but I do use the video bumpers. I went into CV and tested the sequences from the add on and they worked, most of the time. I then tried several different movies and again, most of the time it worked. It seems sometimes the sequence will get hung. I can tell as my receiver defaults to stereo and the cvaction files I have to control my lights don't fire. Either the next bumper doesn't start or the main feature won't start. I can press stop, then start the movie again in cinema mode and it works fine. So, with that being said, at least it works now, though maybe not 100%, which is better than it was before. Thanks rdsp for the quick fix. I'm sure everybody here appreciates it.
  2. Nice! Thanks for the effort rdsp. I'll try this out in the next few days and see if it works with my Odriod with Libreelec.
  3. I had the same question a while back. I received the below answer: Okay, remembered this tonight and, as expected, it's not working. The action files function as my lights dim, etc, but just a black screen when it should be playing bumpers and main attraction.
  4. Shoot. This totally slipped my mind. Watched two movies this weekend too. I use the classic forum skin and still see the goals. Currently $4240.43 of 6K target for round 2. It's not the first time something people have paid for was deprecated and it won't be the last. It's the lifetime of the product/company not the lifetime of the person who payed. Whether or not you got your money's worth could be argued and is subjective. I haven't uninstalled CV but just disabled it. I always have the hope that Ragnarok will return after dealing with whatever is going on in his personal life, but if not, it was fun while it lasted.
  5. Okay cool. Sorry I hadn't tried yet. Been busy with 4th of July stuff, but tonight is popcorn, movie night with the kids so I was going to test it. I'll try it just for grins and giggles anyway. I didn't uninstall CV, I just disabled it, so it will be quick test.
  6. I'll check and see if libreelec has an update to 18.3. If so, I'll reenable CV and see what the results are. I don't expect it to be any different, but you never know until you try I suppose.
  7. Sounds like something similar to MoviePoster. https://www.movieposterapp.com/index.html Other things you mentioned should be possible using action files.
  8. Just an update on this one. I upgraded to LibreELEC 9.0.0 which is Kodi 18.0 and the freezing issue is resolved.

    Sorry about the wait. Had computer issues. So I compared your log to mine after turning on debug mode. My first suggestion would be to remove any add-ons that may be giving you a problem. I noticed this, but is likely not what's causing the playback issue with CV. You may want to consider uninstalling Kodi and installing it fresh just to make sure it runs clean natively. 22:03:29 T:1656 ERROR: EXCEPTION: argument "path" for method "XBMCAddon::xbmcvfs::exists" must be unicode or str 22:03:29 T:1656 ERROR: EXCEPTION Thrown (PythonToCppException) : -->Python callback/script returned the following error<-- - NOTE: IGNORING THIS CAN LEAD TO MEMORY LEAKS!

At first I thought it may have been the file name giving CV an issue, but it looks like you've tried other movies without brackets, etc. I can't honestly see where the issue is. I've posed up an example of what mine looks like for comparison, but I'm running a newer version of Kodi on a different OS so I'm not sure how helpful it will be. kodi_cv_log__kodi.log.txt

    That should work. I'll have to run mine at home and do a comparison so I know what to look for.

    That is odd. Maybe you can pull some logs and we can take a look?
  12. Well, doesn't get much simpler than that. You're not using any kind of symbolic links in your setup are you? Is CV and your bumpers, etc. all local to the HTPC or are you hosting them from a share?

    Okay, I think CV should be compatible since Kodi 14. So everything is playing fine with exception of your feature module using the default Kodi skin and launcher? The reason I ask is because you mentioned CV doesn't work at all with the Back Row skin, which I'm not familiar with. My suggestion would be try to get it working with the default skin first, then try and transition to another. It may not be supported by a particular skin.

    What version of Kodi?
  15. Are you running this on a Shield or PC based HTPC? What version of Kodi?
