We have created a new Skin AeonFlex (Views Based on Aeon), the skin is intended for Kodi-users who enjoy it even to certain maximum number of settings and to use a skin of the latest generation.

Likewise AeonFlex is interesting for users who have a well-maintained database with as many graphics, Thumbs, Poster, Banners, Artwork, etc.

The skin has been developed exclusively for Kodi Jarvis and should also come with a Jarvis or newer version used. The AeonFlex runs on all devices (except those which can only be operated via touchscreen) provided these support a version Kodi Jarvis. The music section is minimalistic.

Preparation and Installation

Preparation:

The skin can be operated using a keyboard or a remote (not by Touch or Mouse). These are absolutely necessary, the following keys of the standard keyboard controls are covered:

C = Contextmenu / AeonFlex (LiveTV- Channellist with mini EPG)
E = Live TV EPG/TV guide
I = Info
M = Playercontrols OSD / AeonFlex (OSD- und Info-Settings) / (LiveTV Settings)
Pfeile = left, right, up ,down (Navigation)
ESC = Previous Menu and/or Homemenu
Back = Back

Installation:

Since the installation of the skins and the associated scripts and addons and specifically the SkinSettings much smaller towns than in many other skins take time. 30 minutes simply not enough.

The following files must be downloaded and installed via Settings / addons / From zip file:

Addons / scripts that are not included in the official repo

Configurations ViewSettings:

As should already be known (The Name say's Flex), has this skin through various additional settings for views. In addition to the standard that you can adjust various views, it is possible AeonFlex each view to your own taste in predetermined frame shape.

This is applicable easily handled by even a standard is already defined in all views. Which completely eliminated through you (hidden) or can be changed to suit your mood. Navigation is always with the arrow keys left, right, up and down, of course, with the subsequent confirmation of an action (Enter / Ok).

Depending on the orientation of the view you will reach with the left arrow key to the view where you edit either the view or change the view can (in addition to other functions) Menu

Let's start with the view lowlist an example for other views (The view was of course among the Skineinstellungen / view selection for movies unlocked his (is standard)

- In the view lowlist with left arrow opens the menu for views. The first option you see Change view (needs no explanation)
- Select Point Set view. Now you see various settings the first 6 should be clear to everyone and thus we dedicate ourselves equal to the two new Names. Wildcards and Fallback.

Wildcard = freely adjustable by up box / placeholder
Fallback = freely adjustable by up box / placeholder for the case that the selected under Wildcard selection is not available. (p.e. No Landscape in a film, so the skin is then selected fallback to)

- These features are available in each view in different ways, some views have more than others wildcards - / fallback positions, or other additional settings, such as transparency, etc. Check hiding

Configuration Live-TV

- First open your you by pressing the [M], the Live TV menu and control the view of the channel list and ask this then also to your liking. The remaining settings are self-explanatory.
- Within the channel list, you can navigate with the arrow keys and there are two special features, channel groups and short channel lists

Channel groups = The exchange between the channel groups by means of the left arrow key (channel groups are not Skinspecific)
Short channel list = as short channel lists you can either one of the available channel groups or your own station list (configuration via Selected TV channels set as LiveTV widget) benefits, you do not you scroll through
interminable services list or move around within a channel list.

- Within the EPG's the key assignment for the menu is the same, so press the [M]
- Special / new function AeonFlex, the EPG if you click on an entry (if the TV menu / EPG / standard selection Action context menu was selected, otherwise press the [C]) is the Kontexmenu and there you see a new feature
switch timers.

The switchtimer does exactly what the description says it we switched at the selected time on the channel to the selected program automatically and no matter where you find yourself at this time within Kodi, ie even if you just
see a movie, listen to music or tust.Selbstreden nothing you will gain before switching a hint ... well, it is possible to remove already set timer again, to simply open via EPG Kontexmenu the switchtimers index and remove entry
click done ...

Since the general and info displays are definable, it also needed because a few clicks. If you is this einstellst via SkinSettings automatically started a movie and you can set up 2 levels according to your needs.

In addition to the cases, the Watched flags and various other things can be the skin of course according to its own color ideas adapt, ie all textures, text, shadows, etc. can be provided with their own colors. There are respectively 132 different colors available.

- Changes in the SkinSettings for setting colors, here you already have five different color combinations to choose from. In order to introduce your own style resp coloring, it is easiest to choose one of the presets and then
open via color settings, the individual elements to your tastes change. Change you can:

Finally

- Special thanks: to all employees. The Aeon Skin and its name are the intellectual property of djh_. AeonMQ and its name are the intellectual property of MarcosQui and AeonMQ team. AeonFlex other hand, has a separate
code and does not use textures of the more original Aeon / AeonMQ. A big thank you to Master djh_ and AeonMQ team for creating their masterpieces which served as a template. Likewise, we thank Samurai, Devilshura and
Ikaruz for the created cases and flags.

- The skin has many new developments incl. A completely new code. To name them all here is beyond the scope by far. The many gadgets you discover then already during operation .....

hmm Nice job so far.. i like the lightness of it.
May I make on suggestion as a Live Tv user, it would be nice while in the EPG to have the info of each program you're on to show on the bottom of the EPG.
Also no channels icons are showing for me, unless I'm missing something.

Keep up the great work!!
