Found no time yet, sorry. Since you are familiar with Python, I'm happy to see a PR to the Leia branch if you want Wink

No problem, unfortunately I'm in the same position, very little time  Sad Plus python Unicode errors always give me a headache  Confused

@roidy @QuizKid 

UnicodeDecodeError should be fixed now for the Leia version. PR is pending.

hi, after 10 years of normal use ..I've finally taken the plunge and started using widgets and smart playlists. Love it so far Smile
Question I have. I really like & use the "next up episodes" widget, but the refresh after I've watched an episode takes a bit too long for me.

So I watch something, I usually press stop when the credits start rolling (advancedsetting is set at 70% to put something on watched) and then I might want to watch the next episode. But it takes around 8-10 secs before the widget is updated.
is there a way that the widget gets updated while I'm still watching my episode and it passes the 70% mark ?

(skin is embuary)

Nope.

I have tried searching and can't seem to find the answer...

I am using the Episodes "Suggestions based on recent viewed" widget and love the concept. However, it often contains shows that have no episodes, which means it's not really something I can watch. Is there a way to filter to only present shows with episodes?

Thanks,
Shoppedude

Hi @sualfred, the user @banggun made me aware of an issue with embuary.helper: The blur function doesnt work in 2.0.7 anymore. I could reproduce that behaviour:

With the blur image function, everything is fine, but the background blurring function results in an error.

EDIT: This only occurs, if Skin.String(BlurSaturation) is empty.

Maybe you can take a look at it Smile

Setting returned items & clearlogo - Pr.Sinister - 2021-05-29

Hi @sualfred ,

Great script you have there... I am having a bunch of issues with library data provider so i decided to try using this instead.

I have one feature request and one question about art in Aeon Nox: SiLVO

Feature request:

Could you add a setting where we could set the amount of items returned for each widget? A global settings for all widgets would be fine too. 

Right now, the Next Up widget return 20 episodes and it's not enough because we like to mix up the stuff we "binge" or we forgot about a certain show and want to get back to it. With Library Data Provider, we set it to 100 so sometimes we go through the widget and get to the 56th item and realize oh shit we never finished that season or there is a new season we never watched. We have a very large library (~2250 TV Shows/~93000 Episodes) so 20 just basically covers a week's worth of airing TV Shows...

If you do not wish to add that, could you point me to the right file i would need to modify? I searched for the string '20' in all *.py files but only the only thing that is hardcoded as 20 is the webhelper's timeout.

Question about art in Aeon Nox: Silvo:

When using the Next Up widget in that skin, it gives me the choice of Poster, Square Poster and Fanart as the choice of art. It's probably because it doesn't know what kind of content is being returned. Can i force this somehow? I prefer clearlogos or clearart. Iam sure i could probably modify the skin to allow clearlogos for unknown content but i'd like to know if you are actually setting the content type returned and mikeSiLVO is just not checking for it properly...

Any help, of course, is very appreciated.

-Pr.

It's limited to 25. More means longer loading times.

The artwork is defined in by the skin.
