TheBigPicture has been working great for years. However since somewhere in the Gotham cycle, there is a minor annoyance.

Using XBMC (13.1 stable) - default theme (confluence), I added this add-on as a "Shortcut" in the Home Screen so that it shows up right below "Pictures" in XBMC's main screen.

Selecting the addon icon and presing "OK" in the remote launches the addon shortcut. This used to work just fine with TheBigPicture, but no longer does. Now clicking on the TBP shortcut produces no results. All other shortcuts (including Flickr) work just fine, only TBP broke somehow.

Tried removing the add-on, erasing the addon's folder and reinstalling, removing and re-adding the shortcut, etc etc, with no avail, The shortcut just refuses to work.

Any idea of what could be happening?
I'm using Kodi 15 Isengard, but I had the same experience. The Big Picture runs fine when run from the Picture Add-ons window, but couldn't get it to run from the Addon Information dialog or from a custom submenu item.

I was able to fix my submenu action by changing it from RunAddOn() to RunScript(). Not sure if it is an issue with the addon, Kodi, or SkinShortcuts.

Sphere...thanks for a very cool addon. Smile

I love this addon and glad it exists for Kodi. Works perfectly on Kodi 15 Isengard!

I have a problem (nothing to do with the addon itself) which hopefully someone can help me out with. I'm trying to get the pictures to show up on my main menu (I'm using Xperience1080 btw). Bear in mind I'm still learning the ropes with Kodi so would fully understand if I did something rather noobish!

I'm sorry if I'm asking this in the wrong place. Thanks for any help and thanks for this great addon!

In Focus - The Atlantic source does not work for me. All other sources load up really well, but when I try to access it I just get a never ending working pinwheel.
Is this a known bug?

EDIT - I also noticed that sometimes, selecting an album doesn't open the album, but is completely unresponsive. I haven't used this addon in a while, but I never had any issues in the past. I am testing on a Windows machine, running Kodi 15.1.
