Many thanks! Will try that now! :-)

Edit:
Seems to work great!
...but for VideoOSD i did not use Player.xxx but another
"<onload>SetProperty(SkinHelper.WidgetContainer,XXX)</onload>"
since i'm using a service.library.data.provider 1-item-dummy-list in there.
Again, thanks much!
@marcelveldt -- Is there any way to return the IMDb rating for individual episodes? At the episode level it appears that the IMDb rating returned is for the whole tvshow rather than the individual episode. Not sure if this is a bug or is intentional?
Hi Marcel
I've recently updated a few UK shows to their correct parental rating on both IMDB and TMDB sites. The first few shows I changed were definitely showing updated ratings in Kodi, but now I'm not getting the updated information. Also not getting anything for any of the other shows I've updated since the first few, even though they are all now showing updated details on both IMDB and TMDB sites. Did something change? Is there any point in continuing to make these changes now?

SkinHelper caches info so its not hitting the servers ever single time.

If I recall correctly, you need to delete simplecache.db to get things to recache. The file is at this location on your local machine:
~/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/script.module.simplecache/simplecache.db

Thanks for the info.
Aye, but the strange thing that's happening is some of the 1st shows I updated definitely started showing the correct ratings in Kodi, but when I deleted my simplecache on Friday to see if the newer shows I had recently updated on both IMDB/TMDB would now show in Kodi, I got zero results for anything, including the shows I had initially had ratings for......
Sorry i m bringin this conversation but i just need to know something:

How could i scrape or call for informations about nominees, awards, or rewards for a movie?

I would like to have them on my skin (Aeon MQ 7) and i actually have the specific space for it,
but i don't know how to scrape those information or how to display them


Thanks

Ok then, i find that in my script script.skin.helper.service (wich i have and it's up and running)
i have the property called

SkinHelper.ListItem.Awards awards for the movie/tvshow

But it doesn't work and not showing anything for any movie.
Any ideas of what should i do?


Thanks
You need an omdb api key to get all the features.
You can get an omdb api key by donating $1 USD a month via Patreon to the omdb maintainer.
Once you setup donations you then request a key via an email link and once you receive it you add it to skin helper.
Patreon link: https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?u=5038490
API request link: http://www.omdbapi.com/apikey.aspx
Post with instructions in this thread: 2601478 (post)
Make sure you delete simplecache.db after adding the api key.
Also make sure you are using the version of skinhelper from marcelveldt's beta repo:
https://github.com/marcelveldt/repositor...-1.0.1.zip

Thanks a lot i finally get what i had to do.
I did everything, i create my own key (and it's working on OMDB) after my donation,
i put the key in the dependency of "metadata and artwork module" (version 1.0.9) and
the version of skin helper service is already 1.1.17 ,
then i cancelled the simplecache.db.
but still doesn't get anything as awards on the movies.

I noticed that the dependency on "OMDB COMMON SCRAPER FUNCTION" has orphans
in the manage dependency.
Is this related?

Many thanks again
Is there issue with PVR artworks ?

I try to use $INFO[Window(Home).Property(SkinHelper.ListItem.Art.Poster)] on PVR channels or PVR Guide but return nothing.

I have in my Home.xml :

<onload>Skin.SetBool(SkinHelper.EnableExtendedArt)</onload>
<onload>Skin.SetBool(SkinHelper.EnablePVRThumbs)</onload>


When I use this it's working :

http://localhost:52307/getpvrthumb&amp;title=$INFO[ListItem.Title]&amp;type=poster
If you using latest version of Leia....
Somthing is wrong with addon settings-and this adddon is trouble like all others Smile

Your skin need to be updated : 2603091 (post)

Addons settings working good with latest kodi 18 nightly :

Nop...same is with estuary.
I'll try always default skin, same resultat.
But this is irelevant, you have settings for that modul.This art should work for you.
Need for pvr to have omdb api key .....from this modul script use "media type"..and this is nessery to find
For fanart and tmdb to collect info.If you dont have omdb key all info and art are down.
