A new release of XBM.. I mean Kodi, a new release of reFocus and a new thread.
- This new version of reFocus is Helix only. Do not attempt to install this version of reFocus on any previous Kodi/XBMC version as it is completely incompatible!
The XBMC 13/Gotham version of reFocus is available on the official Kodi repository. It is also available for manual installation here. The Gotham version will not receive any further updates, fixes or backports.
Kodi 14 Helix
To get the most out of reFocus the following add-ons are required. These add-ons should be installed automatically when you install the skin. If they are not, please install manually using the links below. Certain skin features will not be available if one or more of these add-ons are not installed on your system.
- Skin Shortcuts
- Library Data Provider
- Fanart Grabber
- Artwork Downloader
- TV Next Aired
- Artist Slideshow
The following add-ons are not required but the skin does have support built-in. You will need to install these manually through Kodi's Add-on Browser.
- TV Tunes
- Cinema Experience
- CU LRC Lyrics
- Skin Info Service
Used for additional information in music information screens
Information / Download
It's likely the PVR support has some quirks. I have no PVR setup, and I can only test what the PVR Demo Add-on can provide. Since I personally have no need for a PVR either, I am completely dependant on which bugs are reported and what I am able to test.
- The TV Guide/ TV Next Aired add-on window currently only supports the week view. Support for the new extended view will probably supported some day, but it's not a priority and a lot of work
- If you want to use the weather fanart support in reFocus I recommend this really nice pack by Dr.Toxic:
- If you are a PVR user, get this nice TV + radio channel logo pack by Butchabay
- Or these (mainly focused on the Dutch community)
- And more international logo's here
What will not be added
- Discart / Extrafanart / Extrathumbs
- Watched flags
- Backgrounds / fanart that changes based on selected home menu item
- The reFocus translators http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=187505
- robweber for his great help and feature support with his Fanart Grabber add-on
- Unfledged for creating the Watchlist add-on for reFocus, creating the Skin Shortcuts add-on and the great help and support. You are missed.
- Team Kodi
- My colleague skinners for their help and advice
- Anyone else contributing to Kodi in any way
