I have found that sio2 is not able to detect dvd on windows platform when kodi is already running. If I insert a dvd and then launch kodi. Kodi is able to detect the dvd. After I open kodi, I try to eject the dvd and insert another dvd. Kodi is not able to detect the DVD. I try other skin like confluence and eminence are able to detect and play the dvd while kodi is already opening.
Please help.
Thanks.

Already tried sio2 on Windows 7 and Windows 10 with v15.2 “Isengard” on different machines. Both have the same issue.
I tried to install Kodi V16, but I am not able to install sio2.

I already download and install the resource.uisounds.sio2x from the following link.
http://fastcolors.net/Repo/jarvis/resour...-1.0.0.zip
However, cannot install the following zip.
https://github.com/fastcolors/skin.sio2x...Jarvis.zip

Any idea ?

Any idea ?

is it a dependency issue? probably is, make sure you install all the required add ons manually.

here's the list of what's needed:

service.library.data.provider
script.artwork.downloader
script.favourites
script.extendedinfo
script.globalsearch
script.tv.show.next.aired
resource.images.studios.white
resource.uisounds.sio2x

hope you succeed!!

cheers

Hi Fast,

Can you try a virtual device driver such as daemon-tools lite ? I have tried on Windows 7 machine. I tried to use default confluence skin. Kodi do not work very well with virtual drive. Seems kodi are able to detect when I mount the dvd image, but it will not hide/unhide DVD icon automatically. But at least, if I select "Play DVD automatically", it will play automatically when I mount the dvd image.

I have download the ATV4 branch and successfully install on Kodi V16. However, the sio2 skin for Kodi has the same problem as atv3 and atv4 for kodi V15.

Hi Fast,

I think the problem is related to the following code in Home.xml file. Will post more information if I have.
