1:  do you mean v7.0.0-b2?  (the latest one in my repo?),  or v7.0.0-b1 (older version), or the v7.0.0 that I zipped up as a proper "official release" on github last night (for the submission to the official kodi repo)?  (the only thing that should be different between 7.0.0-b2 and 7.0.0 is the version number on the addon.xml)
2: what type of content are you looking at? It should work in TVShow library (when listing shows or seasons), and Movie library (when listing movies or sets), just double checked and it seems fine on mine. 
3. when you say "can't change", what is it actually doing?  if you open up the settings again, does it say it's set to "poster" or "banner" (or whatever you selected) and it still shows a thumb/fanart?  does the "layout" of the right-bar change (gets taller, shorter, depending on what was selected, poster also would hide the description (to make room for the taller picture)

I use the zipped version v7.0.0
I use movie library
I change thumbnail to poster in list view but nothing happens. The poster seems small to me

How can I find v7.0.0-b2? How can I install your repo via kodi add source in file manager?

Are you looking at the Library (which was scanned in)?  Or the filesystem?  Because I do not see any of the scanned data that is displayed for libraries.  (genres, watched status, etc, which are displayed under each item in the left-side list)  What do you see when switching to Keibertz view, or BigWall?

From your screen shot, it looks like what I see when directly browsing a directory which has not been added as a library source and scanned in.

I don't use movie scraper. My video source is set to a local library. In my video library are several movies. In each folder there are only a video (mouse.mkv for example), a poster named folder.jpg and a fanart named fanart.jpg.

When I choose poster, landscape, banner instead of thumbnail: nothing happens. when I open the art2 it remains thumbnail...
I wish to have a poster view like that... Smile

Haha
I use movie scraper and it's OK now. Thanks a lot @randallspicher

It's better if I could have the same result without using a movie scraper... Can you make the poster frame bigger when I don't use movie scraper?

You are still viewing the filesystem, not the database (I can tell because your screenshot shows the filename, with .mkv on it).

When browsing the filesystem, you will see metadata on the parent directory for movies that were scanned in (if the directory name matches the movie name, and you scanned it in using the "Movies are in separate folders that match the movie title" option).   Because it can match the directory to the record in the DB.  when you enter that directory, it is now showing the list of files.  the file browser will scan the file when you hilight it, and try to extract a thumbnail (which the skin will then display), and will try to extract some codec metadata from the file (for the "media flags", if you turned that option on in the skin).  But there is no "poster" for files.  "poster" only exists for scanned database items, which means (for movies) the parent directory, if it found a match in the DB.

You are right. It happens when I update the version. It works perfectly now . I like this skin very much Smile

It is complicated for me. I still do have a poster with smaller size... I don't use movie scraper because sometimes it doesn't scrape the right poster I like. I like to look only at the poster and fanart of a movie. I rarely read  movie plot, genre, actors ... I keep my movies in a USB. I want to keep the space for the movie, poster and fanart only Smile
It's strange: in shift view, I can select between poster and fanart...

Is the problem is in the list view structure...

If you don't like the scraped poster, you can go to the "info" dialog for the movie ( " i " key if you are using a keyboard), and one of the the options on that dialog is "choose art", from which you can change any of the artwork types, either by selecting one of the found "remote" items, or by selecting "browse" then  "item folder" if you have it saved locally under a non-standard name.

See https://kodi.wiki/view/Artwork/Changing  for details. 

Note, if you have [correctly named] artwork locally in the directory, the scraper will always prefer that.

If the movie is scrapped, I can choose between poster and fanart or can use th info dialog. If the movie is not srapped, I can not choose the different artwork nor use the info dialog... Huh

In list view, is it possible to change from thumbnail to poster as default?

Hi,

In the playback bar / seek bar, there doesn't appear to  be a 'cog' icon on the bar, like there is when I use the Aeon Nox Silvo skin.

Is it possible to : 

1. Change the position of the playback bar, from top of the screen to bottom of the screen?

2. Change time remaining to time elapsed?

Thanks for your efforts with the skin.

That is correct.  If the movie is not scraped into the database, Kodi does not know anything about what sort of media it is looking at, all it knows when browsing the filesystem is that it's either a subdirectory, or a random file.   When viewing un-scanned directories, kodi will look inside the directory for a folder.jpg (or possibly falls back to any random image it happens to find in that directory) and returns that as the thumb to the skin for the directory.  When viewing an individual media file (the mkv itself), kodi will (on the fly) try to generate a thumbnail from the video (if it can) and return that as "thumb".  Kodi will not return any other types of artwork or other metadata to the skin unless the movie (or show or whatever) has been scanned into the database and can be matched to a corresponding record there.   If you want any other artwork to display than randomly found files (for a subdirectory) or a randomly generated thumb (for a media file) you *must* scan the movies into the kodi database first, so that kodi can populate those other artwork fields and other metadata and return them to the skin to display.
