First-run experience and menu z-levels

edited August 2017 in Plex for Kodi

Thought I'd give the Kodi add-on a try, for a break from PMP 2.1 preview, and there is definitely some wonkiness going on even with the latest update.

First of all, for some reason it defaulted to Plex Cloud even though there is no content at all in my cloud instance. It also took the better part of a minute to even let me click on the menu to switch servers—having the animated three-dot waiting overlay blocked interaction with anything else. Then when I finally got the server menu up, this happened:

The menu should be on top of anything that appears in the regular browse UI. It does for actual content, but I guess this is an edge case that wasn't noticed (or I just have more shared servers than most people).

    Are you using the default Kodi skin?

    Yes, this was a completely fresh install of Kodi using the defaults for everything. Ran the Kodi installer (stable, 17.x IIRC), started Kodi, installed the Plex add-on, and logged in.

    Strange, never seen that. A log would be useful.
