Hi,
Your repo doesn't work ?

I'm trying to create a widget for Settings where I can use the "is section" attribute

I'm running KODI on Apple TV 4K and if I use Spotlight or Just widgets home menu, once the focus shifts to a widget using the Apple remote I'm unable to switch focus back to the main menu using the Menu button.  If I scroll to arrive at the start of a widget and continue to the left the widgets just wrap round in a constant loop.  If I press Menu when the widgets are in focus, I'm taken out of KODI completely.

I've worked around these access issues by creating widgets on the home page to access content and video libraries all linked to the same main menu item, negating the need to switch from Movies to TV shows via the main menu.

However I can't create a widget to access the Settings menu.  I can still access it in a roundabout manner, but would prefer the ease and simplicity of a home widget.

I've been testing your skin out today.. the widgets work very well now since your last update. I do have a few questions though if that's okay..

1- I have IMDb ratings enabled in settings, but I'm not seeing the ratings anywhere. Neither in 'spotlight' or 'widgets only' views. Omdb keys are in both embuary info aswell as tmdbhelper. Do you know why I'm still not seeing the ratings?

2- Let's say I create a menu called 'Movies'.. how do I set it so when I click on that menu it opens that particular section on the homescreen? From what I can tell, it's possible to make it so add-ons open directly, but I simply just want it to open the section I'm currently on (whether that be movies or TV shows).

Thanks for your work.. I'm looking forward to seeing how your skin progresses.

Hi,

1. 'settings' is just available for mainmenu entry, not for widgets.

2. for the issue itself ( unable to focus menu ) i will do add a setting (circular navigation ) soon.
So that you can focus the menu when hit 'left' on the first item of a widget container.

But strange that hit 'menu' you get kicked out.
By default it shoukd focus the menu panel...

Unsure if map the button global to 'menu' resolve it till such setting is available.

To point..

1. i just noticed it'll take a while to show up, the issue i see that i'll have to dont use it as fallback, but optional.
( currently it'll have to lookup fisrt a hidden container which is refreshing on every 'move' for an item and if its refreshed but did'nt offer a rating it start lookup by tmdb helper which also have a refresh time)
i will see soon how i can/will make it faster.

2. You just have to go into that section , you like to have.

e.g.
videodb://movies/ - will open the section with its subdir / library nodes

but
videodb://movies/titles - will go directly into the view with all your movies.


video example
just hit the save me button in the wished 'section/node'

Thank you, yes the behaviour is strange and unique to SWAN from all the skins that I've used and tested in KODI on Apple TV.  As I stated I can access the Settings menu through additional clicks from a category section widget.

I wonder if anyone else running Matrix on Apple TV using your skin has encountered the same problem?

I'll install Leia version and see if behaviour is the same.

Thanks the circular navigation option has resolved the issue of accessing the mainmenu on Apple TV.

Not sure if this has already been reported as a bug, but when creating a widget the "Last Played" option for Sort By isn't applied when selected.  It displays and behaves as "Date Added"

A couple of minor bugs:

When using Spotlight Cards viewtype for episodes, words Season and Episode are not in English.

When using Spotlight poster/landscape viewtype you can't access menu to change viewtype without scrolling back to the beginning of the row.

Is there a way to access/create submenu items in this skin?  Also did there use to be an option to display content information in widgets using various poster types?

i take a look there too,.
current compromise is press "menu" button. there is also an existing menu control section setting " focus pre menu bar"

this way its easier to dp stuff like play trailers,open embuary info for the panel view types.

Currently its more experimental and just if using the "mainmenu tile" home layout.
but custum submenu items are on to do list.

I dont understand the question about content infos for posters ?¿....you can toggle the info setting for each widgets no matter which artwork type...
