Are either Mimic or Lyrebird likely to get added to the official Kodi repo? I know it’s not rocket science to download the zip from github but on a device with only a remote control and no keyboard it’s very different to the simplicity of doing a “Get more...” to install it from the official Kodi repo.

When it comes to Mimic, I have no idea if Braz intends to further update Mimic. Not sure if he intends to keep it going until the Kodi 18 lifecycle is done or if he is done with it on the release of Kodi 18. Either way, based upon what he has said (on the forums, that is. We have only talked once and to sum it up as concisely as possible the convo was "Hey, cool if I mod your skin into Lyrebird?" replied with "Go for it and good luck") it sounds like he has the pressing realities of being a family man to attend to and when he has time to dedicate to Kodi projects his focus will be on Omni. Lyrebird will hopefully one day end up on the repo, admittedly, it is early days but it won't go up there until additions and changes have been made so that it is distinct enough from "vanilla" Mimic.

This is also why some of the changes within Lyrebird haven't spread to other areas of the skin yet. I'm keeping the base code as inline with Braz's source in case he ups any changes and I can pull those changes in and so on.

I'm sure there is. I'll compile a small list of user reported issues eventually and correct them (someone else mentioned something about thumbnails not displaying correctly) if they don't get corrected in the meantime. It isn't high up the list of priorities for now but it will eventually get attended to I guess.

Thanks much for your Lyrebird mod !

When I upgraded from CoreElec 8.97.x ( RC4?) to the latest 8.99.2 ( Leia) it said the Mimic 6.0.0 was incompatible and deleted it to bring back the default Estuary.

So I installed your mod and got back all the settings. Had to fix some widgets but that was painless 😎

Questions (all of 'em !)

1. Estuary has a bottom slider with movies/videos where you can fast forward) rewind- really convenient.

Can Lyrebird do it too?

2. I want a custom setting on my Lyrebird home screen whereby if I press the menu ( say USB Play) it should take me directly to the USB stick attached on my Amlogic TV box for playing back files.
I don't know how to set up the custom line... source://video/Huh

How about I am also able to download directly to the USB stick?

I just want to avoid having to go through /storage Video/Music Library etc. every time.

3. Unluckily I keep getting (seemingly at random) the PIN/password prompt on the home screen where it isn't necessary. There is always a PIN prompt after reboot, and when I change between menus. Both on Mimic and Lyrebird, but do not have this problem on Estuary.

I have just locked my Settings so they don't get changed accidentally.

4. I was wondering if there is a way to bring up, from LibreElec/ CoreElec Settings, the WiFi/ Network settings only on the home screen, as opposed to opening up the entire Kodi Settings menu first.

Cheers mate

You're welcome.

1. I haven't played with Estuary and always have ignored it. So I'm not familiar. As much as I'd like to say I'd help out, I only have so much free time for Kodi and admittedly, would never get around to it. No disrespect. However, if you wanted to try your hand at it yourself and get stuck I'll lend a hand if I can.

2. For some good old fashioned fun, I decided to take a look at this one when I had a few minutes to kill to see if I could do it. Here's the recipe so you can follow along at home. Smile I've gone into some detail, none of it is meant as patronizing if you are proficient, just wanted to ensure that if you weren't, it'd be easy to follow along.
  1. Edit the Home.xml of your Mimic / Lyrebird skin.
  2. Here is the opening lines of the code with line 5 being our new addition. Menucontrol does not allow launching of functions directly, it seems, so we're going to point it to control 25000 (that's just a number I chose for this example).
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <window>
        <defaultcontrol always="true">9000</defaultcontrol>
        <allowoverlay>no</allowoverlay>
        <menucontrol>25000</menucontrol>
  3. Next, scroll down to line 42. Move the image control that's there down three lines and insert this button control in the blank space.
    <control type="button" id="25000">
        <onfocus>ActivateWindow(10025,X:\\,return)</onfocus>
    </control>
    Adjust the path component of the ActivateWindow argument X:\\ to the path applicable for your device / system syntax. Forward slashes in this example as it was done on a Windows machine.
  4. Reload skin & PROFIT! Big Grin
3. You'd need to tell me how to replicate this error. I don't encounter such things but my current Kodi setup is sterile. I don't have any kind of user accounts or PINs assigned, nothing networked and I'm based on Windows. I literally just develop on it and only add content as I'm building views. So you'll need to tell me what things I need to do to make it happen.

4. Pretend I'm a complete idiot who has no idea what you're talking about for this one. 'Cause admittedly I don't. I don't know this CoreElec / LibreElec stuff Wink I'm taking it you want to be able to jump straight to the Kodi Wi-Fi / Network settings from the Home Screen?
