WOW, what an amazing skin. Thank you very much for sharing the results of your hard work. 

Now that Kodi 19 "Matrix" has reached its RC status I felt forced to face the upgrade procedure (which is a challange because this time you have to setup Kodi from scratch with all new Python3 addons - if available). Otherwise the auto update function on all my four Android TV machines would destroy my current Kodi installations once the final version of Kodi 19 occurs in the Google Playstore. The update also cost me my favorite Titan MOD skin. It does not look like we will see a Matrix build of it anytime in the future.  So I also had to search for a new skin. And that brought me to this piece of art you created.

The design is very stylish and modern. I also like the widget concentrated main screen and the netflix look and feel. However, there are some comments I have:

1. There is a problem with Titan MOD (and also with Bingie and Bingie MOD) as to their handling of EmbyCon sources. If you enter the Movie section or TV-Show section and afterwards return to the main menu, the next time you enter either of the sections the first movie listed in the Movie section will start playing automatically. As a result when you zap through the menus every once in a while the first movie of the movie section automatically starts to play. It makes the skin almost unusable with EmbyCon. And now it's exactly the same with SWAN.

In Titan MOD @Fuch2468 found out that the problem was somehow connected to the "View_529_NetflixSeasons.xml". As long as this view was activated (you did not even have to use it for Movie or TV-Show section) the problem occured. But once you deactivated this view in th settings everything was fine. No autoplay anymore. 

https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...pid2988167

I do not know what causes the problem in SWAN. Maybe it is also connected to one of the views (I cannot try because SWAN does not offer the option to deactivate certain view types). However, for the time being I stopped using EmbyCon and use Emby Addon instead, which means I now have the regular Kodi libraries linked to the Main Menu. Therefore the problem does not occur right now. But since the sync of Emby Addon is quiet unstable (losing my database every few days) I would rather return to EmbyCon. So maybe you can have a look into this strange behaviour.

2. I couldn't find out how to add "addons" to the main menu, neither was I able to add "Android Apps", "TV-Guide", "TV-Recordings", "Pictures", "Weather" or other stuff to it. It would be nice if you could make those typical menu entries selectable and maybe also include an option for custom menu entries. Currently I tried to adjusted the entries manually in the "settings.xml"-file, but every once in while they somehow seem to get reverted. Also I was was not able to manually create an entry that would give me the "addons"-Hub or TV-Channels or Pictures. The usual paths for the "ActivateWindow" command are displayed correctly when I manually insert them in the settings.xml (I can verify it in Kodi when I go to Settings/Skin/Home Mainmenu and look at the respective Set Entry). However, they do not seem to work.

3. Same applies for the widgets. Would be great to have pictures etc. as widgets or at least the option to create manual entries.

4. It would be nice to have a Netflix-like view type for movies and tv-shows with covers or landscapes or circles on scrolling horizontally, just like the widgets on the main page. 

5. On the top of the Music Hub the album name and the song name seem to overlap when playing a song.

By now I can only use the skin without TV functions, without pictures and without access to my android apps (which is a problem for I use Kodi as my launcher on the Shield TV Boxes). Also I have to use Emby addon instead of EmbyCon (which works but needs me to manually rescan my video databases every few days). So right now I unfortunatley cannot make use of the this beautiful skin. Would be nice if you could add those missing functions.

Again, thank you very much for your hard work! I hope you keep it going.

Thanks.

The autoplay seems very strange.
can you post a debug log , next time.
It would be very interesting.

PVR,Weather, Picures windows are not defined and therefore not workin correctly in shortcut editor (main menu, widgets) but the will come soon, except PVR.

PVR stuff in generell is undone, i for myself didnt use any pvr, so this part will be the last stages of finishing.
( i just asd some options for widget selection without testing , i just looked the skinning wiki for adjust)

Some Bugs and unintended stuff are tracked and on to do.

THE SKIN IS FAR AWAY FROM BETA OR BEEING FINISHED.

But at least.... :-)
the android apps should work now here ( home main menu entry/ widgets )

on leia you'll can update within kodi.

Hope that helps.
