PLEASE NOTE I UPDATE THIS LIVE AND AS SUCH SOME THEMING MAY STILL BE WIP BUT EVERYTHING WILL WORK!

  • Hide episode preview unwatched [enable hide plot in original skin]
  • Skip preplay [Or press 'play' button as normal to skip, if using keyboard or lazy will keep as is for now]
  • Fix missing TV season posters that currently don't work on original [PHT bug]
  • Video OSD paused infos
  • Flick Extras on preplay [will speed this up a little I think; clunky as can't check container onload]
  • Auto show Extras on preplay [again clunky as container not filled straight away onload]
  • Keep track of focus better, ie. loss of while waiting for channel content
  • Dim & zoom all panel views
  • Slide down homelists
  • Hide grainy overlay
  • Move right on Movie preplay shows Extras
  • Toggle video OSD press up/down, auto flash show/hide on load
  • Add side info for Libray Posters view
  • Add view toggle button
  • Add debug toggle (for me!)
  • Cycle all views

  • Kiosk Mode (Disable viewmode change on right move)

  • Super Kiosk Mode (disable leftside menus, disable quit/shutdown, disable context menus, etc. [resume only from preplay screen for now!])

  • Fix missing images on homelist 'Watch Later' [Not all are 'clips']

  • Fix missing 'Playlists' bg art on homelist [Composites missing; Use own for now in /Media]
  • Hack in alternative Music Artist image [Can't get from homelists atm]
  • Fix missing images on PlexPlayQueue

  • Global clock option

  • Fix missing Shared Content composite mask

  • Fix top level Shared Content panel view not wide enough

  • Spin username on start self indulgent candy

  • Hide TV spoiler plot in Video OSD [Tricky to get when play on remote pressed skipping preplay!]

  • Blur incorporated. Subtle use seems okay imho [Gas Mark 7]

  • Added Quit & Home buttons to left side menu

  • Ken Burns rules the World [sorry sorry sorry but it's off by default and disabled in background]

  • Added 'Expert' settings for 'Episode Auto Advance' [reason being is fine on local content, remote content watched status slow to update and the moment passes 'in the speed of things' etc!]

  • Added fonts. Sui & Rexlia work well

  • Added 'Playing X' to home menu (no fanout atm)

  • Auto kick back Empty List (expert setting as not tested remotely yet)

  • Transparent Home lists

  • Custom home slideshow


    To do:

  • Fix: Some channels view flips to bigger layout on position 0?
  • Fix: Double unwatched blob on PlexPlayQueue view?
  • Fix: Activated filters mess up viewmode? [PHT Bug fixed in next release!]
  • Dim & zoom homelists
  • Add low list style view
  • Hide season poster spoilers

"Skip preplay" has been in the skin for a long long time. Or is this another version of it? Like it has been removed totally?

Im not sure? Where is option to skip preplay? If it is, then i'll remove my remove of it ;)

All I can think is you press play button on item rather than click item? Will test later..

Yep, that is the one I meant. Clicking the play button instead of OK button :)

Requests.....


You've got pause info OSD. Can you make a setting for it stay on screen permanent when paused? It only stays on for 5-10 seconds or so


Please can you port over some more view modes and a similar way of changing betwee them? [pushing left]


Looks great so far. Just taking the grain overlay haas transformed it.


With it being factory skin it feels snappy on the pi2. Thanks for this!

Will add option for OSD.

I really want to avoid adding viewmodes, as it will need theming (time I rarely have for everything atm unfortunately). Object was to just tweek what we have slightly. Is there one particular view that will work across all sections adequately for you?


#15

that's more than fair!

I use this for TV view.....

Viewtype - Poster Info
