On pause, poster not displayed - markrennie71 - 2022-11-24

Hello

I had to reinstall and when I pause a movie, it now displays a screen grab from the movie rather than the poster. How do I fix this please?

Cheers
Mark

I'd like to know how to do this too. Anybody please? Somehow I missed this skin but I instantly love it. Aside from that

Was fixed a bit ago, but hasn't been merged into the official version yet for some reason.
Here is the fix.

RE: On pause, poster not displayed - MacGyver - 2023-03-03

Depends on the device, what kind of device?


RE: On pause, poster not displayed - Fuxbox - 2023-03-05

Xbox series x


RE: On pause, poster not displayed - MacGyver - 2023-03-06

I'm unfamiliar with how to alter files on an Xbox version, maybe you can access a share with file manager and have the file there, then use file manager to overwrite the version under kodi userdata apps with a version on the share.

if the filesystem is a challenge to access it may prove easier to download the addon to a computer, extract, make the modifications, repack and then reinstall it


RE: On pause, poster not displayed - Fuxbox - 2023-03-06

Good idea jep


RE: On pause, poster not displayed - MacGyver - 2023-03-08

Might want to kick the version up by 1 to let Kodi see a reason to install it.
So in addons.xml change the line to:

Code:
<addon id="skin.metropolis" version="4.0.2" name="Metropolis" provider-name="jingai, Stoli, Amra, MacGyver">
