WIP S W A N (alpha , updated April-2022)
Goodday.

With the latest update on Github, I got a complete black screen after opening Kodi.
Both on Mac as on Nvidea Shield.
If I press the "S" button I can see settings but after pressing settings or whatever, again a black screen

I always download the latest version.
Then I rename the zip to a unique name.
And then install the zip file

Within Kodi it worked indeed. Strange

May, thats a reason.

I recommend install the skin within kodi via the addon section.
install from my repo.
the zip created by git hub is NOT for install via zip.

So i think you got messed up something.
So to be sure go into the addon directory on your system.

There should be a directory skin.swan,

delete any files and folders to end up match the swan dir like this

in the media folder delete any files , just keep the xbt files
Image

open addon.xml , set version nr to
<addon id="skin.swan" version="19.1.16~alpha" name="S W A N" provider-name="marduk">


start kodi and try to update skin again.
.....
if you try to update skin manually with files from git branch , just copy the changed files
( mostly xml/*.xml , media/*.xbt ) , dont copy paste anything else.

Another thing to mention is that git hub create a zip and use "unsupported" directory name.

skin.swan.zip
|_skin.swan-alpha-master

but it should be
skin.swan.zip
|_skin.swan

thank you very much for your detailed explanation

When you press the round button on your remote control, the OSD will appear.
Is it possible that the pause button is then always selected?
Now sometimes the stop button is selected or the back button.
Thanks

Hi, @  PVR users,

i start to adjust the osd-channel layout - what should be in label wise ?

I am not a livetv user, so unsure whats the 'common use case'

currently in are:
- progress info
- start & end time
- is.recording, is.playable indicators (to do)
- thumb (channel, prefer item previewthumb ? but unsure if possible , or optional if possible ?)
- title and plot
- genre
is there some something missing ??

Please check whether you still have the PM from 15.03.2021 from me. The data are still up to date.
This is a good way to test. 
You can use Titan as an example. PVR things work very well there.  Smile

I wanted to try your current github version (PVR), but with this version I get a black screen? 
I had to go back to an older version.

I have sent you an important PM on the subject of the logo.

I also experienced the black screen issue on all my five Android TV machines. I never had that issue when I updated the skin before using the Github version. However, I then deleted the guisettings.xml so I could access Kodi again via Estuary skin. Then I reloaded the skin via MardukL's Repo, and after that manually updated to Github version by "cleaning" it first as decribed under post #545. That seemed to work at least on four of my five machines. With one machines (also running Android TV) I have a strange issue: While the others did show me version "19.1.17-alpha" when updating through the repo this maschine only gives me version "19.1.16-alpha" (using the same Repo-version 1.05). When I then try to manually update with the most recent Github version I receive the black screen issue - even if I clean that version before the update as outlined under post #545. So on that machine it seems I am currently stuck with version 19.1.16-alpha. Any ideas?

Btw.: Some feedback as to the latest changes:
- As to the new PVR support I feel the TV Guide would need a bigger font size and more color and contrast. 
- The "round edges" of the background is a nice gadget. But it would be great to have an option to enable/disable that look. Also: If you select  the "round edges" theme in interface section the round edges are not consistantly used in all view types and not in the main menu  (MenuTiles layout). So you end up having a mixed system of round and square tiles. I am not so much a fan of the round edges. However, the respective theme should then offer a consistant use of round edges for all tiles and views throughout the skin.
- Deactivating the unused viewtypes is a matter of performance of the skin. So I would recommend doing this. However, it's a little bit tricky because you only can do it in the submenu of the viewtypes. Also you need to do it seperately for Movies/Series, Music and Pictures sections. It would be easier to do it like in Titan skin mod and have a general viewtype activation/deactivation option in the skin settings.
- Still hoping for the option to have custom entries in the shutdown menue ;-)

Anyway, I still have to point out that for me it is currently the best skin available for Kodi. While most of the recent skins play around with tons of widgets (which I feel makes the start and the usage of Kodi quite slow and complex) I love the cleaness and simplicity given by teh MenuTiles layout - especially since I use Kodi as the general launcher on my AndroidTV machines. I think it is the animation of the turning tiles combinded with the nice changing backgrounds that adds to that stylish feeling. Also I love the design of the viewtypes and the customization options. So keep up the good work and many thanks for sharing it with us!
