Specialized skins aren't necessary for Emby plugin anymore??

No, any skin will work. You just have to tailor it to your needs.

 

I use MIMIC.

 

IM85288 is developing an EMBY skin for Jarvis (Kodi v16).

Hey Shaefurr, out of curiosity, what are you using for your live tv? The TV Guide image that you have is pretty cool, just curious how you have it organizing by show as opposed to having the grid setup.

I don't use live tv, the tv guide image is the next aired plugin

IM85288 is developing an EMBY skin for Jarvis (Kodi v16).

 

Just to clarify here, the new skin is not an Emby skin rather one that was initially based on the home screen layout of MBT. Hopefully have an Alpha/Beta available in the next month or so.

This is a work in progress. I'm using Aeon Nox Silvo. When I started I didn't know the difference between a widget and a sub menu but I'm getting there. I love the dark look of the disparity icons.

I have the Movie item defaulted to genre view. I couldn't get the images I wanted to use to look right and didn't care for the default images so I modified the default images with Gimp. Modified isn't quite the correct word, more like coloring with electronic crayons. Up close they look kind of crappy but on a 55" display from 10 feet away they look pretty good.

 

I have a list of things I want to change/add. So far I'm really liking the Kodi/emby combination. There is so much information out there between this site, Kodi, youtube and internet searches that I should be able to get this front end exactly the way I want.  

 

Thanks to all the devs who made this possible. A special thanks to Shaefurr for creating the disparity icons. I have used them on every front end I have tried so far.

Looks nice! I'll be adding more to the disparity set soonish, just waiting to get a new TV, old one is too small to use Photoshop from across the room since I moved[emoji14]

Skin: Titan 3.6 Beta, Emby Coverart enabled.

 

Art work driven, back drops change depending on the selected item and also on a timer. The tiles change randomly on a timer as well. Widgets drop from above for quick access, or you can browse the movies/tv sections using the showcase view. All other items display using panel details view if I recall correctly.

I feel bad not using Disparity, but I think after staring at them for a year I need a break from them :P They're still in the background, just covered by a ton of overlay.

Well this is taking a lot longer than I had intended, but using the titan skin im trying to make it look as much as possible like Steam Big Picture Mode. The sounds, background and gradient were easy to copy across, its the home tiles transparency that is the biggest PITA right to get the proper highlight when unfocused/focused (for the label and icon). Anyway here's how it goes so far, and some comparison shots from Steam. I may just remove the movie/tv backdrops on the homescreen all together, as Steam doesn't use any so it throws the look off.

So how does Live TV work on Kodi with Emby?  I love the way Emby works with the HDHR for live TV.  I would love to be able to have the Emby guide data and view inside Kodi.  Anuone want to post some pics or video for me please.

 

Also does it take up most of the screen or is it in a small box?

Advanced launcher, its an outdated plugin so you would have to side load it. But I use it to launch the windows 10 Netflix app.

I just discovered the Spotify addon that was added to the beta repo and I am super happy with it!  I'm using Aeon Nox: Silvo here.  Aeon Nox was always one of my favorite skins, but it was missing too many features and I didn't like the horizontal home menu.  I absolutely love this modification to that skin!  I'm especially loving the fact that I can add the days top playlists from Spotify as a widget on the homescreen.

Raspberry Pi3 with Libreelec/Kodi 16.1 and Emby for Kodi Beta 2.2.51 (iirc)

 

Nothing special, for the most part just Titan Beta with some custom colours. Some of the fancier effects are disabled, mostly because they need more memory and I rather use a few dozen more MB for the cache.

My software setup is soooo basic compared to you all-out guys. Kodi Jarvis stable, Confluence skin, everything is basic and (mostly) stable. I would like to give Titan a shot but I'm afraid its too "busy" for the wife.

 

In the living room, I have a Windows 10 laptop dedicated as a HTPC, driving the 59" Samsung tv, Harman Kardon audio system along with a DAC, a HD PVR and Mission tower loudspeakers + a Subwoofer that shakes all the neighbor's windows :lol:

 

In the cool and quiet basement runs Server1 where Emby lives 24/7 and holds my stockpile of media. Upstairs home office holds the workhorse Windows7 desktop, where I do 99% of media addition/editing and the sorts. Beside it is Server3, which is a one-way mirror backup of Server1. There's 4 more computers throughout the house, all gigabyte networked.

Hi jlr19

If you would like to try a good looking skin that is very easy to use (in fact much easier then the standard Confluence) - try Metropolis.

It is a completely new style of layout that is very easy on the eye plus all screens, icon order, alphabetical list order and layouts can be customised, but just leaving it in the order it comes, it looks great as well.

 

If you would like to take the next step, (which I did and adds so much more to Kodi), add fusion to Kodi. The extras it adds are just incredible.

https://www.tvaddons.ag/fusion-installer-kodi/

I printed out the instructions and just followed them step by step. No problem at all.

 

I use Emby for it's fantastic Library work and editing etc. and Kodi (with fusion addon and Metropolis skin) to give the best added features and easiest viewing experience.

(Plus Metropolis can use the Tag feature for TV shows, which means you can set-up your own viewing or program guide, to watch (say) certain shows on certain nights - Tags are edited in Emby in the Edit Info of a TV show)

 

Hope it helps.

Any idea why all the imgur albums have stopped working and displaying the pictures ? 

 

I tried two web browsers and also tried updating the link for my album but still doesn't work.

 

Thanks.
