Can not duplicate your backdrop screensaver issue. My backdrops transition fine.

 

 

ok rebooted my HTPC and that seems to have cleared up a few issues

 

screen saver is now working as expected.

I am now able to select to select audio track

 

Is there a way to select lav splitter defaults for audio and subtitle preferences?

 

*edit spoke to soon screensaver issue is back(ish).

 

i do prefer this screensaver over ET1

Even with the switch, I don't want to sign ourselves up for doing the work of making the app respond during playback to changes made by external programs. That's basically what it comes down to.

no one requested to set these thing up during playback its actually the only way to access them cause the "rundll32 *.ax,OpenConfiguration" switch doesn't work with the integrated lav

For instance, adjusting the volume slider does not change the actual volume of the video.

 

The volume does change when you let go of the slider. Note: the volume control won't have any effect if you're bitstreaming, although you can stiull use the mute button.

episode list only shows plot for first episode

 
This is to prevent spoilers and is currently being tweaked.

In no way is a beta intended as a daily driver. You should be using this version to help the community by testing and offering constructive feedback.

still "trapped" in the episode screen, no way to the next/previous episode not to speak of season or series

 

 

You have a point about not being able to skip to the next/previous episode at the episode detail screen - but, you can if you play from the episode list screen.

Oh, I didn't realise that - it doesn't show overviews for unplayed episodes past the "next up" episode. I suppose that makes sense, but I think that definitely needs to be a config setting.

ah didn't get that the plot it is hidden by all unwatched episodes thats a nice feature

my daily drivers are nearly all in beta stage ^^

Audio switching I fixed, so that was just a matter of restarting the app.

Same here ;)

I just glad to be rid of Kodi now, even with some missing features. My wife prefers this too. The guys have done an amazing job.

That's a great feature I will leave enabled.  Once I read the plot for an episode in advance and it said something along the lines of "As everyone is shocked by the death of Mary etc".  It was like oh man she dies?

This must be a load off your back. I'm more happy for you that you've gotten past this hump than it's actually been released.

Doesn't do anything for me. Mute works but not the slider. Not bitstreaming. No receiver, no HDMI, no television. Using it on a desktop PC with multiple monitors and a USB headset for sound.

Really should be up to the user. I couldn't care less about spoilers and would rather have the overview. Too much of the metadata is always hidden.

sure but comming from an item on the homescreen getting to go to the episode list is heavy going

links to season and/or series just like in the webclient e.g. would be helpful

 

another scenario "next up" only gets updated once you enter categories

so after watchin an episode you have to go back to homescreen, switch e.g. from tv to movies and back, just to get the following up episode shown up, reenter the new episode und hit play

You can now switch audio from the default - but the check mark stays on the default track and you can't change back to the default track.

It's awesome! As good as I'd hoped it would be. I haven't put it through it's paces yet, but so far I love the functionality. TV plays really well, so far. I can't wait until you add the guide and all the other things on the road map. If I experience any glitches or have any suggestions, I'll be sure to mention them here. My hat is to you and your team, Luke.

 

Oh, here's a suggestion. It would be great if I could search just by typing, as we could in the media center client. That was a very useful feature

The "Next up" not updating issue was raised during alpha testing, Luke just didn't have time to get to it. 

 

There are quite a number of  issues that were found during alpha that still exist in this version - that's why Luke doesn't want to call it a beta yet.

on win 10 box while watching either a movie or tv episode, holding down the back arrow on an mce remote will cycle through screens to the screen showing settings, select server, sign out, and exit icons but no icon can be selected thus requiring a forced close from OS to regain control

Yes, as I said above, it will be a setting.
