Hi,

Can anyone enlighten me how to show the title/album and cover art *permanently together* with the artist slideshow? At the moment it only shows for a few seconds when a new song comes up or when the mouse moves over the screen.
I just upgraded Kodi from version 18 Leia to 19 Matrix and on version 18 it showed the cover art and song info permanently.
I can't find that option anywhere.

Thank you kindly.

Cheers
Caesar

When a song starts, Kodi puts up an information window with the title/album, etc.  By default it goes away in like 5 seconds.  If you press the "I" key (or if you're using a remote whatever remote key brings up the INFO screen) while the song is playing, the information you want should stay on.  And Kodi will remember that setting from now on.

Hi mate,

Thanks a lot for the info.
Can this be reversed by pushing the "I" button again?

Cheers

Hehe....and then I need to re-install and set up Kodi again which takes me at least an hour.
Hopefully someone knows.

I really would like to have the time shown a tad longer (like 20 sec) and not just 5 seconds. If this is just a matter of changing a number in one of those lines in the file inside the library, could anyone please let me know where please?

I'd suggest you take a look at the wiki page for Artist Slideshow (link in my signature).  There are many different settings for Artist Slideshow, and they are all documented on that page.  One of the settings is an option to change the timing of the slides.

The artist bio used to show when I played local MP3s or a radio station, now it doesn't.

Would you suggest what I need to check/change?

Not sure.  I just checked in my Estuary mod, and when using the Radio addon or playing songs locally, the artist bio shows (as long as I have that setting enabled in the skin mod).  What is displayed and how is a skin decision, so if you changed or updated your skin recently, that could have something to do with it.  You could enable debug logging in both Kodi and Artist Slideshow, play a song, and then go through the log.  AS logs *lots* of info in debug, so you should see the artist get identified, then some skin properties set (among them the artist bio if AS found one), and then images downloaded (if any new).  If you're still stumped, post a link to the full debug log and I'll take a look.

Thanks for pointer to skin.

I use Aeon Nox SiLVO and found a setting in the Music tab of customisation called 'Enable artist information feed' which I set to persistent and all works again. How it got unset I don't know.
