I have one question, because in the german forum i can´t find a solution for my problem.
I have now the home cinema experience addon for KODI an a eventghost with a JBMedia light manager pro and it not realy work with playing a audio format trailer becouse the support has ended. And without playing the aufio format trailers, its work perfectly. Lights go out when i start the film, light go on when i stoped the film...
Now i find cinema vision. And i don´t understand how configure the atomation cue´s / actions. I have no ideo of python script. How can i find a example file to configure a "play" "pause" and stop event an connectet with eventghost. I know the most (i can´t post links, because i have currently 0 post^^ ) tutorials but i don´t understand it.
I believe that i need a connection (eventghost addon?) between KODI and eventghost?
With best regards,
Hey there! So with CinemaVision, one of the things we did was try to further simplify home automation. It's not quite point and click yet, but you don't need to know how to script. That said, here's a great article
about triggering actions via the Webserver Plugin. Once your triggers are in place, it's as simple as putting a web address in the action file, like this:
# This is an example of a simple GET: request and not very useful
Do keep in mind that CinemaVision can talk to and control any home automation solution that has a RESTful API, like Philips Hue for example. What kind of lights do you use? You may be able to control them directly without using EventGhost.

If you could tell me how to upload a log file, then I'll be glad to do so.
I do have a couple of questions though. I can't find where the CinemaVision Launcher is. I looked everywhere on Kodi last night and couldn't find it. Also, is Rapier the only skin that has the launcher built in? When I press enter on a title in Rapier, at the top of the screen, it has the CinemaVision option and the option to just play the title as is. No other skin that I can tell, has that option. For instance, in Aeon Nox, when I right click on a title, it doesn't give me the option to start the title with Cinemavision and there isn't an option for it on the page after I hit enter either. Lots of questions. Sorry. Let me simplify:
1. How do I upload a log?
2. How do I install the CinemaVision Launcher? I don't see it in the repository. I think I'm on Kodi 14.2, by the way.
3. How do I launch a title in CinemaVision in Aeon Nox and other skins besides Rapier?

Edit: After the CinemaVision launcher was installed, when I right click in Aeon Nox, the CinemaVision option is there now. It looks like I'm answering all my own questions. I am assuming Rapier is the only skin that allows you to launch CinemaVision without right clicking?
So Context Menu Add-ons are actually new to Isengard, which is why you couldn't see or install them in versions prior to Kodi 15.
You're not losing your mind.
To upload a log, look at the instructions in this post
under the REPORTING ISSUES, ERRORS AND BUGS heading.
We actually have quite a few skins that have support, and instructions for adding support listed in this post
. The current options are launching from the Movie Information screen (if skinners built a CinemaVision button into their skin), a context item (if skinners built one for CinemaVision into their skin), the CinemaVision Launcher which does not require skin integration, and launching from inside the Sequence Editor. We'll be adding a few other ways soon, provided we're allowed to. Detailed instructions can be found here
under the PLAYING THE EXPERIENCE heading.
