It should now be fixed on Git. Thanks for reporting
Hey Marcelveldt, thanks for maintaining/supporting this script. Just tested the new color picker addon, great work.

Quick question about the wall backgrounds provided by skin.helper.service. Is there any way for skinners to tell if the user has them enabled in the script settings?
How to skin kodi without this script ? You can't coz it's an amazing script…. .

Thank for your work Nod

All settings from the script are available as window property.
So, you could try this:

StringCompare(Window(Home).Property(SkinHelper.enablewallbackgrounds),true)
Also, you can simply check for a wallbackground if it's available:

!IsEmpty(SkinHelper.AllMoviesBackground.Wall)
Hello Marcel,

Here are an updated Spanish translation for the helper service addon, and a Spanish translation for the new color picker addon:

3. I have enabled PVR-Thumbs for EPG-entries and I get this error:
code 404, message Not Found
...
3) Does this happen all the time or only for entries with some special characters in the name ?
It does happen all the time, the script doesn't find an entry (image).
I posted more logs here:
https://github.com/marcelveldt/script.sk...-249611012
If you need further testing or debug-logs, please let me know
Are there known problems with "SkinHelper.IMDB.Rating.Percent" ?

"SkinHelper.IMDB.Rating" seems to be correct every time, "SkinHelper.IMDB.Rating.Percent" is a little off, meaning, for example:

"SkinHelper.IMDB.Rating" 7.6
"SkinHelper.IMDB.Rating.Percent" 70

Thanks.

I've just tested it and it works perfectly fine. Also in your log you can see that for some titles there actually was an image found and for others not.
When an image is not found it will return 404 - not found so that is OK.

PVR artwork will only be returned if the showname is actually found on TVDB and if there is artwork available.
Try to set the &fallback= parameter to a fallback image.

Thanks! Great addon. Incredibly useful with it's realtime RT/RTU/MC/IMDB ratings! (i don't use anything else of the provided features) Smile

It is absolutely OK, that your script can only DL images, when they are found online. I wanted to point to the python error:

This does not look good in the logs. Can you fix it please? If no image is found, there shouldn't be a "Broken pipe" error.
BTW: I tested it also with the latest version from today and the versions before.
Thx for this awesome script

Edit:
Can you please add a option for sed-regex, that is executed on the title name. I have some dirs in the "pvrthunbs"-dir named e.g. "Auf Achse (XYZ)", where XYZ is the Epidose number. It would be good, when skin-helper would allow processing regexes like "(.*) \([0-9]*\)/$1" to remove such numbers.
Hi Marcel

I use SkinHelper.EnableAddonsLookups + Window(home).Property(SkinHelper.PVR.ClearLogo) and Window(home).Property(SkinHelper.PVR.ClearLogo) to show art on movie addons.

In this last two updates from GitHub this amazing ability don't work anymore.
Can you fix it? Please...
Thanks
