v18 Aeon MQ 8 - 2.9.0 - Kodi Leia
#1
Hello everyone, after a while out I'm back with the new Aeon MQ 8 - already available in official repository.
I want to thank everyone involved in the project, who somehow helped Aeon MQ 8 get here. To you my THANK YOU!

OVERVIEW
- In this eighth edition the main menu was redesigned to provide simplicity during the use and better interaction between horizontal and vertical modes.
- A new theme was created, initially announced as monochrome, now gets its final definition - Black - A sober and elegant theme to match the new style of the skin.
- Both main menu and other skin windows now have a neutral color. The intention is to give more prominence to posters and other media items. Do you prefer multiple colors? No problem, skin still has a great color picker so you can customize everything as you wish.
- The submenu has been improved with the removal of the Empty item, giving rise to an item that leads to the addition of content or selection of services depending on each case.
- Flexible Widgets of the second generation. Following the "top menu" style of the collections, the widgets selector now has an easier reading, in addition it gained several new categories. The biggest news is about the submenu where you can organize by type and order. A complete tool that elevates customization to another level.
A new code has been written. From the first alpha you can already notice how Aeon MQ 8 is fast and rotates smoothly. The code is being updated taking advantage of all the new features that Kodi allows. There is still much to be done and redone, but in the end the result will be incredible.

MAIN MENU
New layout and a new theme of images where the biggest highlight are the media arts.

FLEXIBLE WIDGETS OF SECOND GENERATION
Choose a set of widgets and you're done, it's as simple as ever. But you want more, very well, then you can sort the list by title, votes, duration, video resolution and other dozens of options. In addition it still chooses between ascending and descending order. All this works individually for each set of menus.

NEW CODE = MORE RESOURCES AND BETTER PERFORMANCE
All code will be updated and transformed, taking advantage of everything Kodi Leia allows. We'll have a better skin every new build.

Great Skin, thanks a lot for your hard work!

However, when watching live TV, I now have a black screen (+ no sound) when I try to show the info menu (the menu is bound to a key of my remote control, I don't know how to display it otherwise). It was working with MQ 7. Any idea?

Been using this for a few month's, only just installed 2.7.5 today so this is a nice surprise. I had a few issues with he last 2 releases and I forgot to mention them in your forum. I'll play about with this the next few days but I'm all setup with widgets and custom menus so I'll get back.

OK.... Just looking now, live tv is way slower to load up than last RC. Now I've only just updated this to 2.8.0 in the last few minutes and I've been using this skin for a while and as I'm typing this out my live tv isn't showing. I just get the background wallpaper of a remote. Umm lol just loaded, hoping it's a one off.

Def a lot quicker to navigate menus though.
In the skins folders you have play lists with a bunch of playlist already created. Where do I put these so that nvidia shield or android home menu picks them up as I believe they can be then used in the channels section for the homepage of android.

I thought I could copy them into the playlist folder in kodi/userdata/playlists. I've put them in there but nothing on android honescreen

Thanks for this latest version of the skin. I particularly look forward to the Games menu being functional.

I've only just begun playing with it, but there are 2 things I notice so far:

1) For the main menu default items (e.g. movies, tv), it was formerly an option to make the background draw a random slideshow images from the fanart database. I'm not seeing this function anymore so far..where is it?

2) When navigating the menu with music playing, an OSD of sorts randomly pops up in front of everything on occasion. It has the album artwork and a panel of buttons below it (pause, rewind, ff, etc). I don't think this is being prompted by any input of mine - any idea as to why this would be randomly popping up?

Just some early observations that you might like like feedback about. Been using Aeon MQ since MQ3, and look forward to exploring further what MQ8 has to offer!

Edit: One thing I've noticed that was very noticeable early on is that the menu navigation is much smoother. It has a great feel, moving around through my library.

I'm looking forward to trying this, but I am unable to install the skin. I have tried installing both from zip file and directly from the repository. However, each time after the Aeon MQ8 screen comes up and says not to press any key, the progress bar never moves, even after 15 minutes. I have uninstalled KODI and the skin folder, while keeping preferences intact, and have upgraded to v18.1 without success.

Anyone else having issues with installation or have any recommendations?

Extra fanart cycling of the background in the movie library is not working for me I have them stored in the movie subfolders in the extrafanart folder named as fanart1.jpg fanart2.jpg etc...   I used both Artwork Beef and Toolbox Script to get them to work but the skin only shows the Standart fanart.
In other skin's like Aeon Nox Silvo and Aeon MQ7 Leia Mod it works. 
I'm using a Nvidia Shield tv with Android TV 8

I have noticed when clicking on a TV shows Widget it opens up a directory listing for me, but when doing it on the movies panel it plays the movie.
Does a setting somewhere need to be changed for it to play the next unwatched TV show directly?
