MidnightWatcher has posted a topic in CinemaVision Add-on Feature RequestsI'll soon be building a home theater in my new home and have a suggestion that, I think, would truly give home theaters an added wow-factor. What I would like to do is mount an HDTV in portrait mode affixed with a Raspberry Pi running Kodi near the entrance of the theater and use it to display the poster of the movie that is "Now Playing". In a nutshell: * Add a "CinemaPoster" section to the CinemaVision settings. * Set the primary CinemaVision-enabled Kodi box that is used in the theater itself to "Master" mode. * Set the secondary CinemaVision-enabled Kodi box affixed to the back of the HDTV on display near the entrance to "Client" mode. * Enter the Client's IP address on the Master and/or vice versa. * Include a setting for the Client to run in "Client Mode". When a movie is playing, the Master and Client will communicate and the Client will then display the "Now Playing" movie poster for the film that the Master identifies (and maybe the Client could even cycle through different versions of the film's posters). When the theater is not in use perhaps the Client can cycle through "Coming Soon" movie posters and even download/stream them to play the movie trailer in a window near the bottom for the 'Coming Soon" movie. This would be similar to what the 'MoviePoster App" does but without the need for a Windows-equipped device. Thoughts?
