I thought this might have been a problem with upgrading from one version to another but I've tried resetting skin to defaults and also completely removed the skin (uninstall within Kodi and also remove all folders/files manually) and re-install but still get this same problem.

A lot of stuff has changed in the last iterations of the skin. In your case, you just need to assign some widgets to your tv menu.\\For example assign the "ecent recordings" widget to your spotlight section.

You will have to re-assign your widgets or reset the menu to defaults to make the widgets work properly again.

1) Please never post a full log into a forum message, instead better paste the content on pastebin or something like that and provide the link.

2) I don't think the crash was related to the skin or helpers because looking at your log they were shut down successfully.
You're using Kodi beta so an accidental crash can occur. If it's happing more often something is wrong.

In the latest beta I have added an option to only display the animated art in the details/info panel so it will be less resource hungry.
In your case I's suggest to enable that option.

2) The spotlight widget has 2 functions: It can be loaded with a widget on its own or it will display the info/details of the normal active widget.
It is mainly used to display e.g. the latest movies or something. To launch apps/addons you can better use a submenu or use the (super) favourites widget

Thanks again for the help.

2) I have the spotlights set to rotate but only the widgets rotate. I am able to rotate the spotlight manually but not on its on. If I manually rotate the submenu or spotlight in a shortcut, the other shortcuts menus move also. Is this normal or beta bug?

I cant remember them all but there are some menu settings toggles that don't work. Rss feed is one. I will post if I stumble across the others again.

Thanks again

Thanks for reply Marcel I tried this already. I removed and re-added "Recent Recordings" using Widgets>Default Widgets>Skin helper Service Widgets>PVR> but I just get a spinning circle for a few seconds and then an empty list. I've tried to add other widgets from within the PVR> section and some works but most don't ie on one client the "Channels" widget works but the others don't but on a second client only the "Timers" widget is working.

I'm using ArgusTV backend PVR, not sure if thats relevant. FYI the other widgets seem OK its only the ones from the PVR> section that I'm having problems with

I run Kodi Krypton v6 (Windows 10 store app) with this skin on an older pc (Socket 775, Q9200 CPU, 8GB ddr2 ram) and it runs fine as does the animated artwork so i find it hard to beleive that his system cannot handle it as its newer than what im using.

Good Marcel.

I have reset to defaults and nothing. Maybe I do not explain myself well, when in the main menu I get the widgets for example "Modern Family S8E01" when I see it I should change the widget to S8E02 if I have it, and if I did not have more, that widget would disappear Giving me to understand that I have seen the whole series, until I had new chapters to appear again.

I have tested it on the default estuary skin and there if it works for me.

Kodi v17 Beta6.

Regards, and thank you very much.

For the part of the log the next time I will send it better.

Widgets for movies and music doesn't work even after resetting the menu to default. Any ideas? Series widgets work fine though.

So your library doesn't pause during scrolling? Would to many programs installed cause the delay?

Both issues will be fixed in next skin update

Can you please send me your kodi logfile ?
Or look in the logfile yourself if there are any errors listed from skinhelper service or skinhelper widgets.

All PVR widgets are working fine on my testsetup. Can you look in your kodi logfile if there are any errors listed from skinhelper widgets ?

It depends on how many movies have animated art. If you're looking at a list of movies in for example the Big panel view with lot's of movies having animaed art you can definitely notice it impacting performance. Scrolling is less smooth in that case.

That is exactly how it is designed to work.
Can you go to Skin settigs --> Supported Addons --> Skin helper Widgets
make sure that hide watched items from video widgets is enabled.

1) Please look in your kodi log if you spot any errors from skin helper widgets
2) Try marking a movie as watched/unwatched in your library to see if the widget updates in that case.
