I'm trying to get similar movies in a list clicking on a button, example "Similar"

PHP Code:
<onclick>XBMC.ActivateWindow(10025,plugin://script.skin.helper.service?type=similarmovies)</onclick> 

But what i get are all the sections skin.helper script provides.

Is there a way to pass directly to similar movies?

Thanx

Code:
plugin://script.skin.helper.service/?action=similarmovies&amp;limit=[LIMIT]
or
Code:
plugin://script.skin.helper.service/?action=similarmovies&amp;imdbid=[IMDBID]&amp;limit=[LIMIT]

Hi Marcel, I noticed certain property's are not getting reset, such as the tagline from tmdb so had a look at the code. In the resetWindowProps method of ListItemMonitor.py there are some fields missing from having their info cleared. Quite a few of them are from tmbd. Please have a look when you can.

1) OK, will do, thanks

Some others I found are for example, ListItemStudio and Top250

Cheers

Thanx mate, but it doesn't work.

If i put:

PHP Code:
<onclick>XBMC.ActivateWindow(10025,&quot;plugin://script.skin.helper.service/?action=similarmovies&amp;limit=100&quot;,return)</onclick> 

it opens a list with movies, but i don't see any match to "Similar" movies. They are just random i suppose.

EDIT:

OK, this seems to work:

PHP Code:
<onclick>XBMC.ActivateWindow(10025,plugin://script.skin.helper.service/?action=similarmovies&amp;imdbid=$INFO[ListItem.IMDBNumber]&amp;limit=50,return)</onclick> 

Thanx.

This has a few benefits:

- you can use the widgetcontainer in ANY window, also custom windows etc.
- all windows props available for the library will also work for widgets/custom containers.
Just tray new benefits,...and I like very much....Smile

Hello,

I use the Madnox skin with Kodi Jarvis on Windows 8.1 x64. I've noticed that Skin Helper Service is now showing up in my Music Add-ons section. It's strange to see that with all of the Internet Radio add-ons. Is there an option to prevent Skin Helper Service from showing up there or does this have to do with Madnox somehow?

Thanks!

Using the Eminence mod skin the duration of the video does not show up at all using version 1.0.68. Everything works perfectly using version 1.0.51 however. This is a problem for everyone using the skin.

Thanks.

Me too. I see the same problems in my Eminence 2 mod skin.

@ Marcelveldt: Using the latest skin.helper.service version from git, did not solve the problem. Deleting it, and downloading it again, neighter.
Is this a bug in the skin, or in the skin.helper.service script?

In your Titan skin the aforementioned things do work.

Another question: my widgets (home screen and movies / series hub widgets) in Eminence 2 Mod skin do take more and more time to load. I have a superfast laptop (i7 6700HQ + NVMe SSD + 16 GB DDR4 RAM) and did make no changes on my NAS. Only thing I changed was delete my old database and rebuild a new one for Kodi 16 Jarvis. Is that an issue with my skin, or perhaps with this script too?

Hi marcelveldt,

The skin.helper service seems to download multiple images for any given show in the pvr section which is great. That part works.

Trying to change an image manually by selecting "artwork settings, refresh artwork (manually)" will not work if the skin.helper service has already got data for that particular program stored in the addon_data pvrthumbs folder.

If you want to use the refresh artwork (Manual) option you have to delete the folder for that program from the addon data folder first, then refresh it.


Cheers,
Loggio.

@ Angelinas; Thanks!



For my Eminence 2 Mod skin the code goes here:

(2016-04-01, 11:31)Sjors125 Wrote: Thanks, it is working again.

It was actually at line 16, but because of the line breaking / word wrap of the program you open it with, it can be at any other line.

The code should be posted one line below:

Code:
<onload>ClearProperty(extinfo,home)</onload>
    <onload>SetProperty(HubReturn,Home)</onload>
    <onload>SetProperty(SkinHelper.WidgetContainer,9001)</onload>

and one line above:

Code:
<!-- Modification Onload -->    
    <onload condition="IsEmpty(Skin.String(HomeStyle))">Skin.SetString(HomeStyle, beveled)</onload>

Save the home.xml, restart Kodi and it works again.

I would like to make a request. Since Kodi 15 it is possible to tag videos in Kodi. I use this to tag the movies with an atmos or auro flag. In the skin i show the audio flag if the movie is tagged with atmos or auro.

In my local copy of the skin helper service i have added a Tags property which reads all tags from a movie if present. If the movie is tagged with more tags like atmos and 3d the result property string is 'atmos,3d'.
I'm not the best python developer so it's a hacky way but it' works.

Maybe you could add this the correct way or if you like i can get you the code i use. Every time i update the skin helper service from git i have to add the modifications manually. So it would be nice if you could add
the Tags property.
