Aeon Nox for Plex Home Theater

I’m very pleased to announce the release of my port of the Aeon Nox 5 from Kodi for Plex Home Theater.

Aeon Nox 5 for Plex has 28 different viewtypes, an intuitive and graceful GUI and lots of configuration options.

Translators Wanted:

If you speak another language than English, I’d very much appreciate your help in translating Aeon Nox into your language. No skinning skills are necessary, and odds are (depending on your language) a decent amount has already been started. More details here.

Aeon Nox (for PHT 1.4.1 and OpenPHT 1.5.0) is available here:

Awesome port of a very awesome skin! Hopefully this jewel will remain working when the new PHT version will come out at the end of this month.


#3

Loved this one on Kodi.. Now it's on PLEX!! Whoop!!!

TY!!


#4

More skins = more better :) thanks for all your hard work


#5

Any Rasplex users out there? I'm very curious how the skin runs on a Raspberry Pi.


#6

Update:

Added Shelf 3D Viewtype by manfeed for artists and albums in music media sections:


#7

Hey I'm trying on the Raspberry Pi but not allowing me to sign In .I copy the folder to Storage/ Kodi /Addons folder Is that the right place?


#8

Please note that I do not run Rasplex myself, although I do run Openelec on a PC (which is what Rasplex is based on). My understanding is that for Rasplex, the skins go to this folder:

/storage/.plexht/addons

Which won't be accessible (by default) as a network share. You need to either add the skins folder to samba on Rasplex to make it accessible as a network share, or use a ftp program like WinSCP to access the folder and copy it that way. For myself with my Openelec box, I use WinSCP to transfer Nox to it.

I found instructions for using the network share method for the Pi located here:

https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/178653/about-changing-skin

Let me know how that works. I do have two Raspberry Pi's (the original ones, not the model 2) -- so if necessary, I could take one down, and temporarily install Rasplex on it to help troubleshoot.


#9

Ok figure It out .Lol Thanks again


#10

Let me know if I can help.


#11

Thank you for this skin! I've been using Aeon Nox on Kodi for a while now and I like it even more on Plex. I really like the fact that you've included more colorful metadata icons and various "views" by default. Bravo!


#12

Thanks for the compliments. :) I do my best. And this is only the beginning. I'm still working on it daily, and have a lengthy "to do" list I'm working on.

Can't wait to see it evolve. BTW, what's the best way to update the skin to the latest version without losing existing settings?

Thx!


#14

Settings are independent of the skin. (Stored in the userdata folder in the file guisettings.xml) So upgrading should be painless (I've literally done it thousands of times now). The settings will carry over to the new version with nothing extra needing to be done (I'm glad it was designed that way).

I do recommend to completely delete the previous skin.aeon.nox.5 folder before copying the new one each time you upgrade though. Sometimes files are deleted or renamed, and potentially (but rarely), having old stuff lying around could create issues. Not absolutely necessary, but safer.

Thank you, sounds easy-peasy :-)


#16

No problem.


#17

hmmm ive followed your instructions but i don't have the Plex Home Theater folder any ideas


#18

What system are you running Plex Home Theater on @Mckenna95 ? Windows? Linux? Mac? Openelec? Rasplex?


#19

Absolutely amazing! Just amazing!
What would be perfect if we could have a choice of the "watched/unwatched" icons. Or have it smaller, a choice of having it on the bottom right of each poster or an option to turn it off.
I'm not really a fan of the green ticks and star icons. It looks a bit cluttered especially if there is a lot of unwatched movies/tvshows. Maybe a choice of the normal full, half or empty circle to indicate watched/unwatched programs.

Other than that, i love everything about it. Superb!!! Thank you so much!!


#20

Update:

Added a submenu to skin settings to allow the individual disabling of Watched, In Progress and Unwatched status overlays.

I could also add the circles if you like.
