If only people would post their log automagically, they'd get their issue resolved twice as quickly in most cases... I personally feel like a parrot constantly saying, post your log! post your log! post your log...

I just wanted to drop in and say Thank you for this skin! I just installed it last night on my laptop and Shield TV. I am using the Silicon Dust unofficial PVR skin (on the Shield) and the plugin on my laptop. I love the way your skin integrates seamlessly with it.
I have one question and it may just be personal preference - is there any difference (one better than the other) between using the Kodi plugin for Emby vs Embycon? I usually use the Kodi plugin but I notice there are some additional buttons that refer to Embycon and I wasn't sure if when you built this skin you were more thinking with Embycon and that one would work better?
Anyway, thanks again for creating this skin. It works great so far.

For me it seems like duplicate data especially when the Emby for Kodi addon is installed and being used to manage the local db. Where it could be more useful imho is if Emby for Kodi is not installed (maybe the user is using plexkodiconnect or maybe just plain vanilla Kodi) and wants to then navigate their Emby media via embycon.

It's be design...Estuary does the same. As long as you followed the install procedure (I think it recommends to set auto select next unwatched episode etc) then it works very well. Although I'm still not sure if I would prefer to see the actual season/episode number of the next watched episode.
Ideally I would prefer continue watching and next up to be combined...for that reason I disabled the continue watching in the skin settings.
By the way (I think @sualfred did not mention it)...if you prefer a different theme there is a "material" color scheme which can be selected from the same page you select the skin

A couple of comments
1) There is no "OK" or confirmation button on the add source dialogue menu. Have to revert to another skin to add a source at the moment
2) No selection "wrap around". Meaning that once your active selection gets to the end of the area it does not jump to the opposite side. This is also missing on the keyboard. (Sorry for bad explanation)

Love the design. So different from all Kodi skins. It's weird using a Kodi skin that is like the web interface. Well done. Even for an Alpha I have little to no complaints. Any issues so far would be from my inability to adjust from standard Kodi skins. Stick to your guns, there will be a ton of people who love what you are doing.

Not at the moment. I know Emby is designed to have different categories and library nodes, but Kodi isn't. It's also complicated because Kodi has no hubs by default and I just faked it with custom ones. That's means a lot of tricky script implementation has to be done. And to be honest, that's the reason why genres do exist. You still can use the custom widget feature for the home screen if EmbyCon supports such nodes.
