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?

@Rufoo
Appreciate your detailed answer quickly! First, I am the product manager type who doesn't know coding except follow general directions and monkey type . So any instructions are welcome.

1. OK so I will just look around and wait. Mimic/Lyrebird is just a great idea that is hard to abandon.

2. I see what you are saying...

A. How would I specify what button to activate? My plan is to have a USB Play menu on the vertical home screen menu list- think I should just be able to click on it and invoke Kodi to go to the USB ports on my TV box.

B. Re: X:// .... how do I specify the pathfile generically to external USB ports. Usually these TV boxes ( as in #4 below) come with 2 usb2.0 ports, sometimes 4 ports.

Think I need something like:
X:// ... refer to /dev/sdb || /dev/sdc
( meaning go to either external drive b or c. /dev/sda is usually reserved for internal drives in Linux, as you know.)

3. "Luckily" I have the same PIN/password prompt problem under Windows as well with Mimic.

You can replicate my error by going to Kodi Settings> Interface> Master Lock Code> Lock File Manager ON & Lock Settings ALL. Other settings OFF.
Here Ask for Master Lock Code at Startup is OFF.

4. If you still have time...yes I want to jump straight to the WiFi/ Network menu from Lyrebird home screen:
https://discourse.coreelec.org/c/general/guides

The 8.99.2 link is at top, install guides #3,4 & 5.
I recommend the X96mini 1/8 GB model from Vontar at AliExpress.com.

Others might have issues with broken reset button or wrong (too cheap) board like p282 (need p281 with available device tree for the Amlogic S905W chipset.)
