I use ncid to send callerid information to kodi using kodi-send. The information displays correctly when a screen saver is active, at a menu/list screen, during music playback, etc. The only location the message does not display is when a video is playing/paused. This works in other skins (and used to work in xTV SAF before the move to kodi/AppTV). Is there an option either through the UI or within a file that will allow notifications/messages while a video is playing or paused?

The message only displays for 4 seconds and allows me to decide if the call is important enough to pause the video to answer.

Thanks.

fbef,

Will take a look at it after I get back from a trip this weekend. Your timing was excellent on your request as I hope to make a push to the repo next week. Stay tuned.

If required a FULL debug log can now be submitted from the skin in settings->skin settings->support. Or follow instructions here if you can't access skin settings.
