Just to inform all the others:

Yes, Date Added is missing for TV shows as sort order option. This is caused by a Kodi internal bug. I've reported it to the Kodi devs (https://trac.kodi.tv/ticket/17692#ticket)

 

If you guys are forced to use this option (to prevent family wars...^^) just add a custom shortcut to the TV show hub with "ActivateWindow(videos,videodb://tvshows/titles)" and disable the default TV show button. But be aware that this could cause other strange issues, because this node remembers the last entered TV show. 

 

Edit:

And happy holidays to everyone :P

Small and often requested Christmas present:

With the update of today you are able to create up to 6 custom main menu items for different Emby (or addon) video nodes. Similar to the custom shortcut option of the hubs.

 

Example:

Movies, TV Shows, Live TV, Music, Addons, 4k Movies, Documentaries, Kids

 

But please keep in mind that these buttons will never get a own hub window or widgets, because these lists are completely unique on each system and Kodi isn't designed for this case.

Happy Holidays to everyone.

This is a great skin, thanks. One thing I would like to see is the ability to add shortcuts to AddOns not classified as either "Music" or "Video". Performance is decent (but not great) on my Raspberry 2, on windows 10 it's smooth as silk.

what exactly do you want to add?

Great news for everyone who is using multiple libraries: Automatically detection and hubs are implemented.

But only for Emby for Kodi users. It's not working with EmbyCon sources.

I'm using this on a couple of Raspberry Pi's running OSMC, and I would like to be able to add a shortcut to the "My OSMC" (Program= Add-On.

Is it the configuration tool (like the one of LibreElec)?

 

@Chinese and Japanese people (if we have any)

I've added Arial and WenQuanYi Micro Hei as optional fonts. I hope I covered all necessary skin element changes and the letters are not cropped somewhere.

A skin is not responsible for any Emby related connection. 

Go to Addons -> Video Addons -> Emby

Thank you that explains it. The item that are missing is live tv also noticed that is splittin libraries into shows and movies.

 

When you go to emby addon live tv is considered experimental is that is why it is not on the list.

 

Huge effort thank you

Kodi has it's own live TV clients and never uses Emby as backend. You need a backend like TV Headend, DVB Link, DVB Viewer, etc. ( http://kodi.wiki/view/PVR )

And Kodi always splits the libaries into shows and movies. As I said: It's just a skin.

is it a possibility for a future release to make the icons for movies, tv shows and especially genres more persistent? Maybe like just refreshing them once a week?

They rebuild here on every Kodi startup, and everytime I mark something as watched or manipulate the database on any way. this build/popup process doesn't look very nice.

 

Thank you for this amazing skin!!!

Nope. It's out of my control, sorry.

okay, thought the user could have the ability to set custom genre image sets like in other skins.

One more question:

Why did you put the trailer button in context menu? It's always reachable via the normal movie info. I'm asking as I'm not a fan of an overloaded context menu :-)

Because other users asked for it :)

But I will remove it in the next version. Users can still add a conext menu extension from the plugin catalog.

Thanks :-)

Another one, but I‘m not sure whether you could change it even if you wanted as it behaves like this on every skin:

When searching for a movie with the search button on the top line (global search) there seems to be no way to get the movie info view opened for one of the search results.

So for questions like

„What was the name of the bad guy actor in Terminator 2?“

the search is quite useless :-)
