Sorry it this is the wrong place to write this message... I actually tried to email and pm you (Karnagious) directly, but this forum didnt let me. I just recently found this add-on, and i have to say its what I been looking for for ages. Its almost like I pictured it.

If you dont mind, I like to add a few suggestions for an improvement.

So in the main window, where you list up all the shows. It can be either 'standard', 'poster' or 'big screen'. Personally I like the 'Poster' mode, its and easy and very visual approach to browse each show. For my suggestion I would add a fourth option, which display each show just like in 'Poster'-mode, but instead of showing the poster for each tv-shows, instead show the screenshot from the actual episode. Under each screenshot it could be the text, fx. "Game of Thrones: S2E12".

So why I believe this is a better approach? As a 'lazy' tv-show watcher, I am already familiar with my tv shows, especially the ones I am currently watching. The poster of the tv show is not something I need to look at in the long run - However, the episodes/screenshot will keep change as I watch the tv-show. It will be a nice dynamic feeling, and it will be a nice teaser for the next episode I want to watch.
As for the left column, this could be the detailed info about the show, an episode description and the poster for the tv show.

Second suggestion... would be nice if you could add a menu option in the right click meny (on tv shows), to access the tv show information.

Those screenshots are a little controversial as they often contain spoilers.

I see your point... some screenshots may contain spoilers. This is why I suggest this feature to be optional through a new display mode so people may choose for themselves.
In my case, I not only use this for new tv shows, but also for rewatching old shows randomly. I believe the add-on is intented for this use as well. Besides, whereever the descriptions or screenshots are coming from, i think they do a pretty good job on not spoiling anything essential. At least not to me!

Bottom line is... I think my suggestion will make it look more appealing.
Of course its your call, I just wanted to suggest it so people who dont have problems seeing episode screenshots or descriptions in advance may have this option!

ola sir

thank you for an awesome addon Smile

i am having a strange issue, and googling doesn't seem to give me a direct answer. I have installed Lazytv, and rest settings to default.

it generates a really nice list of episodes i can watch, which works on first try.

my problem comes in once the current episode finishes.
It presents the lazytv screen again, but the list is completely empty.

i have tested this now with a few episodes tonight , and made a debug capture now after watching how i met your mother.

capture is below ( had to zip it - pastebin didnt want to accept the size)

running Kodi 16.0 ( will try upgrading to 16.1 to see if that helps), with skin Aeon Nox

regards
