how are you supposed to name logos with : in windows, it says to use / but windows doesn't allow / in file names.

Is there no way this can be changed to load logo.png from the show directory like xbmc?

thanks

Unfortunately there is no other way to do this with PHT but you can replace/remove the colon in the title via plex web ...

  • Go to your Plex Server Web Frontend (http://plexserver:32400/web)

  • Select your TV Show (e.g. Terminator: The Sarah ...) and hit "Edit" in the left side menu

  • Remove the colon in the Title or replace it with something windows likes  (e.g. "Terminator, The Sarah ....")

  • Rename your logo filename accordingly

Hi,

Great skin, by far my favourite so far for Plex. Just one issue that keeps bugging; I'm not sure if this is a skin issue or PHT. (sorry if I am repeating issues you are ware of)

With some movie Studio Logos the logo simply shows as a white block, seems to work with most (WB for example) but others always shows as a white block? do you know why this is?

One other thing I've noticed is when you click to view all unwatched for TV shows and I have it set up as Poster view for both tv show and seasons menu (works fine with clicking All shows), on unwatched once you click the show from poster view the seasons revert to list view apart from for the first tv show on my list.

Studio, Rating and Mediaflag Images are (normally) served by PMS and not by the skin itself. I'm pretty sure plex developers are aware of this issue ... maybe it's some kind of legal/permission issue or just not important enough to fix right now.

View states are also managed by PHT but I will look into this issue more deeply ...

Next Version Update:

I wanted to release a new version of the skin before christmas but there is still too much to do ... it's going to be a pretty big update (in terms of code changes), with lots of small fixes and some new features like filters, sorting, preplay screen, 5 different OSD modes, new styled dialogs/viewtype selection, new background customizer  to change/enable : kenburns effect, haze effect, fadetime between images, time per image, opacity, custom image, custom slideshow) and more ...

Happy Holidays everyone!

Cant wait to test for a new version :) Keep up the good work!

I just wanted to say thanks to bkury for all your hard work on this skin.  This was my favorite skin for XBMC when I was using it on my HTPC.  I was staying on PMC just for the sake of having a decent skin but now that I've found Night again I quickly upgraded all my clients to the latest PHT and the Night skin.  I can say that it is working flawlessly for me so far.  The animations/transitions are smooth.  The fanart and poster views are fantastic.  Thanks again!

thanks guys!

small update: I guess that the new version will be ready in about 1-2 weeks, depending on how much free time I have to work on it ... in the meantime here is another screenshot of the new viewtype/filter/sort/options screen. (all dialogs shown, default accent color, some things might change in the final version)


#81

Thank you so much for your work on this skin. It really is in my opinion the best Plex skin Ive seen. Do you have any plans to add a pre play screen like in the default PHT skin?

thanks! yes, there will be a preplay screen option in the upcoming version with 3 different modes: off (default), show before and/or after playback ...


#83

Awesome! Look forward to it. Thanks


#84

I agree, great stuff, has been working flawlessly for me. Another question though, do you plan on showing different server names? I have cloud sync setup and I can't tell the difference between my two TV Shows section.


#85

yes, show servername option will also be available in the upcoming version ...


#86

Great! Can't wait for the update.

Hi bkury, so I've been having an issue when beginning playback of videos that I thought at first to be a plex issue but I think it has something to do with the night skin. When I use the plex skin the problem goes away. It seems like when starting to play a video, the video stutters briefly within the first 5 seconds and then continues fine. Have you heard of this issue? I have an older Mac Mini 2.0ghz dual core. Is there any log file I could supply? I've checked the PHT log and the PMS log and found nothing. Thanks in advance.


#88

I think it has something to do with the missing preplay screen/xml file and should be fixed with the upcoming night version ... also update to PHT 1.0.8 if you haven't done so yet, there are a lot of osx specific bugs fixed in the newest version of PHT. 

Speaking of preplay screen, today I (almost) finished the new preplay screen ... hope you guys like it :

and here is another hint of one of the new and unique features:

Great looking stuff. Thanks again.

Juist installed this 2 hours ago, been playing with it, and have fallen in love with it. Gorgeous, clean and near perfect. Don't think i will be going back to Plex/Mediastream.


Option to hide filter menu when going into a section (like the new plex skin) would make it perfect. Also maybe a poster/series title view in the on deck filter section for series?


Nittpicking, good job!!


#91

Might give this a go tonight, thanks a lot for your talent.


#92

Upon starting pht, i cant get rid of the log in sound? I've changed the setting, but it stil plays only a little bit shorter?


#93

yes, "disable startup sound" option is deprecated and has already been removed in the new version ... for now you can simply rename sounds/start.wav (in the skin directory) to get rid of the startup sound.
