I installed this skin today and I am not having very much luck with it so far.

 

The tiles on the home screen seem to show up fine and show with appropriate images from my files on the server. However, when I select the Movies tile or the music tile it takes me to the XBMB3C addon instead of the files. If I select the TV Series tile it correctly takes me to my TV Shows.

 

I also use Live TV. When I select the Live TV tile and the screen comes up and just shows me the default background screen with nothing on it and I can't then back out of the screen or do anything. I have to pull up the task manager and it shows the XBMC is not responding and I have to manually exit out of it. 

 

Here is the log file from the XBMC folder. Let me know if you need anything else.

Hi Jason, I've been busy the last days with the skin and an updated version is available within the next few hours. This fixes the liveTV issue and the skin is now fully XBMB3C aware meaning that it's by default a XBMB3C skin if the plugin is detected at install. Just allow me a few more hours to completely test it.

 

About the music and movie tile.... I'm thinking it's a bug in latest XBMB3C version. The same thing happens to me. What the tile basically does is opening XBMB3C for the "All Movies" (xbmb3c.std.movies.0) category, that doesn't seem to work anymore. Can you try to open the XBMB3C plugin manually from the video-addons page and then select "All Movies" category ?

If i'm right then you'll see a script error occuring in the left top of the screen.

 

I've just tried this with other skins and they have the same issue so maybe someone of the XBMB3C developers can assist ?

@marcelveldt - curious how long this took you and what your previous skinning experience was?

Hi Xnappo,

 

I'm fairly new to XBMC skin developing but I have a lof of experience in frontend application design (and user interaction), mainly XAML (WPF) applications so it didn't take me long to understand XBMC's skinning basics. For this theme I didn't do all the work myself. A skinner on the XBMC forum did the initial port of the Titan skin from Mediaportal to XBMC but that wasn't a finished project. I basically took off where he left and finished the job including integrating a lot of my own ideas in it. Been working on it lots of hours in the last month or so.

Glad to hear you are aware of this and it isn't just me! :-)

I will test what you are talking about when I get home later.

I always liked this skin when I used to use Media Portal. I am very happy to see it coming over for use with XBMC.

Thanks for your quick response and work!

Hi Jason,

I fixed my issue with the "All movies" section of the plugin... Apparently it was a server-issue. In my case I have re-installed MediaBrowser server and this time I didn't install the CoverArt plugin.

Now it's working fine again. Are you using CoverArt plugin ? Still not having Music library, need to sort that one out too.

So, am I right in thinking that the skin is not compatible with Cover Art right now? That's a bit of a deal breaker for me, sorry. Other than that, this looks like a very nice skin.

It's not the skin that is causing that issue, must be something server-side or in the XBMB3C plugin as other skins have the same issue since latest update. I'm still collecting info and figuring out what is causing it. I'm not 100% sure it is caused by CoverArt. All I can say is that in my case that fixed the problemen (but maybe it was something else) I'm going to enable the CoverArt plugin again somewhere today to see if the problem is back.

There is a new setting to enable/disable coverart.

I haven't had time to play around with this a lot just yet. I can confirm I get a script error if I enter the root folder of the plugin and select 'All Movies'. However, I always break my movies into two categories and enter the folders from the home screen via those (using nodes in skins that support that).

 

I also use the Coverart plugin and was the biggest draw to Media Browser for me. 

 

I won't be back to my computer until later tonight so maybe I will have some time to play with it then.

Then you're in luck as I just added support for that ;-)

And would you want a tile/gadget for every category or a submenu on the movies tile ?

I've now added a (optional) submenu on the tile but the adding of tiles for own categories isn't a big deal.

 

I will upload the updated version of the skin later today, made lot's of enhancements for the XBM3C integration.

I downloaded the zip and installed in XBMC. The tiles for my DVD files and Bluray files show up and are working great! TV Shows are also working just fine. 

 

Music tile isn't pulling up my music from the server. It takes me to a page for Music Addons/Files, but nothing is there.

 

I am not sure if you changed anything in this version regarding Live TV but that still is not working for me. The first time I selected it I did see the screen for the Channels page, but the moment I tried to select the EPG page XBMC freezes up and I have to open task manager to exit. 

 

By the way, will you be adding any additional view options in TV Shows and Movies? Right now there is only the list view for TV Shows and I like to use the Banners view. In Movies there is the option for List and Showcase. Showcase is ok, but I prefer some type of Poster view that scrolls across the screen.

 

Looking much better though, it's getting there!

Great to hear that it's working it is intended. Thanks for testing it.

Do you have your music in Mediabrowser's webinterface ?

And, when you open the XBMB3C plugin manually, do you have your music collection then ?

 

 

I am not sure if you changed anything in this version regarding Live TV but that still is not working for me. The first time I selected it I did see the screen for the Channels page, but the moment I tried to select the EPG page XBMC freezes up and I have to open task manager to exit. 

 

LiveTV was allready working fine in previous versions, i just added option that you can select the view to open. Tested PVR with about 5 machines (Linux and windows)  and didnt see any problems. I have examined your xbmc log and I see some errors regarding PVR:

 

ERROR: PVR - ADDON::CAddonCallbacksPVR::PVRTransferTimerEntry - cannot find channel 8101 on client 1

 

Could you please test with another skin if PVR is working then ?

 

By the way, will you be adding any additional view options in TV Shows and Movies? Right now there is only the list view for TV Shows and I like to use the Banners view. In Movies there is the option for List and Showcase. Showcase is ok, but I prefer some type of Poster view that scrolls across the screen.

 

 

Yes I will be. I am using the list view myself so I gave that most priority and attention. The showcase view was included in the original skin port so I've added that one too. After I've fininished this version to stable I will add another view like the poster view. Can you give me an example of how that should look like for me to get some ideas? For example another skin which has it implemented (or another application). I was currently thinking to implement the same tile views like to home screen for that, just nice big tiles with your movies, but that's just an idea I'm playing with.

  

Looking much better though, it's getting there!

 

 Thanks, nice to get some feedback to finish the final bits in getting it perfect :-)

Ok, I tested everything again. Music now works just fine. I didn't change anything so I am not sure why, but at least it's working fine now. 

 

 

I tested the PVR in MQ5 and the Custom Confluence skin and both are working fine with the PVR function. I can post another log where I just go directly into XBMC and then the Live TV section to show what occurs. I haven't had any issues with Live TV before on any skin.

 

 

Regarding the views, here is a screenshot of Poster view from MQ5:

Coverart doesn't seem to display for me, but it doesn't cause any error whenI have it turned on. The images that show are just the plain poster style images.

That is odd.  I can't take an in-depth look as I am out of town with only tablet :)  But I looked at the code I added to disable CoverArt and don't see anything obvious.  Does it happen with all skins?  Maybe this skin is cropping it out?  I had that problem with Nox originally.

 

If it does occur with all skins, you might try deleting your textures db file.

I can check later on if it is a problem in other skins, but I think it is just Titan. I have only been using the plain view with Coverart for a few weeks now.

The Titan skins seems to default to the rounded corner look that is standard in Media Portal, so maybe that is what is happening.

@xnappo:

I've just enabled CovertArt again on my Mediabrowser server and all is fine now. Don't know what caused the problem the other day but I'm glad it's fixed.

Now I can modify my skin to adopt CoverArt media. Is there any way I can get the setting from XBMB3C plugin if coverart is enabled/disabled ? That way I can disable my own overlays in case that covertart is in use...

 

@Jason: would you like to test again with the skin today ? I've added some extra views you may like :-)

Also, I'd be interested in your logfile as I cant seem to figure out why PVR isn't working with you. What XBMC version are you using ?

I can do some more testing later this afternoon. Do I just use your download link from the previous post?

I will also get you a log when I get home.

Thanks!
