you lost me there... we're discussing a screensaver here, so of course it loops forever :-)
You're confusing the terminology or you miss-interpreet me: this screensaver uses the slideshow and the loop is in the slideshow and not in the screensaver. I think it would be a good idea to have an option to control this loop so you can let the slideshow stop after the last picture is showed. It enables to trigger the user to switch sources for his slideshow.

I know your goal is a 1:1 implementation for the old screensaver. Since you did the work, you might have an opinion about this idea.

the built-in slideshow screensaver in xbmc eden works that way.

this is the slideshow screensaver addon for xbmc frodo,
it doesn't use the built-in picture slideshow of xbmc.

whether this is intended behaviour or not, i don't know.

i'm not sure why xbmc fails to suspend your monitor.
it works fine on my end.

Hmm, you're right, my mistake, I'm able to replicate this with all screensavers, even blank. How odd.

Thanks Ronie, the slideshow addon works really well for me on my aTV2.

I especially like the additional options incl showing the picture date and music info. Great work.

The only quirk was it fell back to displaying video art until I previewed from the settings screen.

thanks
Paul

Thank you, love it!

BTW, the latest version is not showing up in the the official repo.


RE: [Release] Slideshow Screensaver - CaptainKen - 2013-03-22

I got this working initially with Frodo and Aeon Nox v4. Now when the screensaver activates the screen goes black except for the file name and picture tags in the lower right corner.

I've tried versions 0.0.9 and 0.1.1. I've also tried the Folder setting with local and NAS folders of pics. Also tried the fanart setting.

Here's the log file.

EDIT:
Here's a cleaner log file.


RE: [Release] Slideshow Screensaver - ronie - 2013-03-23

if you could post a Debug Log, i'll have a look.

normal logfiles rarel contain any usefull info when it comes troublesooting.


RE: [Release] Slideshow Screensaver - CaptainKen - 2013-03-23

I'm assuming that you wanted me to use these parameters: <loglevel hide="false">2</loglevel>

Here is the new log

not really...

GUI Settings

most common method
In Settings -> System -> Debugging toggle the Enable debug logging setting.

whatever you did, it didn't work :-)

Oops, sorry I thought I had done that part.

Let's try this again.

hmm.. i'm not seeing any errors in the logfile.

do you have the same issue if you try the screensaver in confluence?
does your fanart work in the movie library?

No, screensaver has same issue as AN in Confluence. Yes, Fanart shows up in Movies.

'fraid i don't have an answer then.
i've read your log upside-down and back again, but nothing stands out.

the only thing i could recommend is upgrading xbmc to the latest 12.1 release.


RE: [Release] Slideshow Screensaver - sphere - 2013-03-24

Hi ronie,

any chance you can integrate other image plugins as image sources for this add-on?

regards,
sphere

Thanks for looking into it Ronnie!

I installed v12.1, but no change. The goods news is that this is a test system. My live system is still Eden, but I'm playing around on a test system to get a handle on any issues I run into before switching over to Frodo. I'll try this out on a fresh install of the test system at some point, and try to remember to followup back here.
