If you want you can use\learn from my code:

and it looks like that:

inside the "Phenomenal" folder you have all the <widgets/> :

they assigned in the <content/> tag inside widget-grouping. I also added the helper widgets at the end of the list named "more..." with the helper icon.

Yes, because it's by default in the widget-groupings. If you want to override the defaults, just specify a widget-groupings in your overrides.xml.
I think you are using the old way of setting the widgets, that has changed since latest skinshortcuts version.

OK, no more errors in your log now.
What's the issue at song level exactly ?

Is it root-songlevel or artist-album-songs ?

And what about the player ? These properties working fine too ?
Thank you guys, I think I got it (partially). Have to dig further to organize shortcuts now. Was busy rewriting some parts of my skin so left a little both scripts.

Can you check if it's all fixed now with latest git ?

I tested the latest commit and it works both with properties and web service! Music player is ok too.

Wonderful job!

I'll keep you posted if i find other issues.

Thanks

Ok, i've just found that properties are not working in artists view.
Seems like an error for unmatched parenthesis.

Hi Marcel, I'm trying to use tour webservice to display the PVR arts I set it like this :

Code:
<texture background="true">http://localhost:52307/getpvrthumb&amp;title=$INFO[Container($PARAM[Id]).ListItem.Title]&amp;channel=$INFO[Container($PARAM[Id]).ListItem.ChannelName]&amp;type=fanart+thumb</texture>

I want to display fanart if found and thumb if not, so I used + to separate them as in the wiki.
However, as soon I use more than one with + none are shown. Any idea ?

Thanks

Yes, I found that one out myself too. Also fixed another bug that the cache wasn't used properly so it should be faster now.
Please check latest Git.

You must use a comma as seperator...

EDIT: I forgot to update the readme :-)

I have a few suggestions for new shortcuts:
- Live-TV-widget 1: Favourite Channels
Here the User can setup different channels from different grous and play them after selecting
- Live-TV-widget 2: Last recordings
display the last X recordings and show the info (date recorded, channel, EPG-entry etc.)
- Live-TV-widget 3: ChannelGroup selection
display the ChannelGroups and open it after selecting.

I'm Posting this here, because of Mr. V said so Wink

The post is here: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=...pid2141492
Did Mr. V mean skin.helper service? User Jayz2K said so. If this is the wrong thread also for this FR, then please give me a hint, which is the correct one Confused

Thx for thinking about this FR.

This is the correct thread ;-)

1) How should this work ? Add a channel to the Kodi favourites and the widget just shows all channels that are added to the favourites ?

2) The recordings widget provided by this script already does this...

3) I'll add this one later today or tomorrow.
