Ill Give Watchdog a Go. In the Confluence skin all things are golden for the Movies and the TV Shows(shruggs shoulders).

That's strange. The code for the buttons in Confluence and Rapier are almost identical.

You are using the button to the right of the top options menu bar?

Hi Gabe.

I'm loving this skin.

But there is an issue I'm encountering when I have CDArt Manager enabled. Whenever I go into skin settings, it detects CDArt Manager is installed and prompts to setup a path for it, but the problem is, I can't click on the dialog, the settings menu behind it is focused. So I'm moving around the menu behind it.

I tried manually configuring CDArt but that's not good enough for the skin.

I'm using Jarvis on Android. Tried updating to 9.2 but bug is still there. The only workaround at the moment is to temporarily disable CDArt Manager until I'm done in the settings menu and then reactivate it. (Although that addon has never worked correctly for me anyway, just freezes kodi when I tell set it to download art)



On another note, why is the theme setting greyed out in 9.2.0? I liked setting it to orange instead of the default blue.



EDIT: Found a way around it. Saw the option to configure the path in the skin settings, so I set that to the path I wanted, then went out and enabled CDArt Manager, and presto! annoying popup window is gone! ... let's hope for good.

Hi Stumpedify.

Yeah, actually that popup dialog is a really bad idea, so I just removed it from the skin.

You're right that you can enable clearlogos for the music library in Skin Settings > Media > Music, and set the path to your music library (for the clearlogos) using the button "Music Library Path". Looking at it, it's not very user friendly, so I might simplify it Smile

Regarding CDArt Manager, I don't think the official version in the repo works properly. You can download a working version here, and install from zip inside Kodi.

I have no idea. I'll check it and get back on that one.

Sometimes it takes a while until the updates are in the repository, and it's not there yet. So you'll just have to be patient Smile

Thanks again Gade, looks great from what I see here.

Am a little busy right now with end of year stuff but will try that XBMC Aeon thing we talked about in other thread soon!

Yeah, you're right. The GitHub version works as intended. Thanks!

Cool, glad it worked Smile

EDIT: I have seen that there's an error in the official repo regarding themes for Rapier. I will request a fix as soon as possible.

Yup, that's true. And it's really worth it for all the new features Wink

See the first post for details.

Probably best to backup your userdata folder, although I rarely do that.

You can install directly on top of the old installation though - no need to uninstall etc.

Thanks Gade. I've set it back to orange.





Now there are two other issues I'm having.

The first is music fanart doesn't seem to work properly for me. I'm not sure if it's handled differently to videos or not, but I can only get the fanart to work through Artist Slideshow while playing that particular artist. I'm not sure CDArt Manager is downloading anything at all. It says CDArts: 0 in the bottom right, but there is art saved in the artist music folders.

I figured out how to take screenshots in kodi, so here are some to illustrate:

As you can see, no artwork is showing up. Although strangely enough, once I hit songs view to choose which song to play, I can at least see the artist thumb:

Once I start playing that song, this happens:

Once I stop the song, we are back to the default global background...


Am I doing something wrong?



And quickly my second, more minor issue, of which I'm not sure if you're the one to ask for help about...

Extendedinfo doesn't seem to be downloading banners, is that normal? I wanted to be a bit fancy and create some custom menu setup to explore the information it holds, so I created a page for on air TV shows, but in thumbs info view, it only seems to display the banners of shows I have in my library, the rest are blank. It downloads the fanart and thumbs for the other shows though, just not the banners.
