Buy a standard LED LCD TV and burn-in shouldn't be an issue unless you run the TV on 24/7. Don't buy OLED.

Again something on the basic side (but not pure garbage) will look great. I'd never buy a Hisense TV to anything but a kids TV and this unit actually looks great because it's hardly doing any actual work.

Also, turn off ALL motion softening digital processing. You don't need poster transitions looking like unnatural soap operas.

Also check out the Movie Now poster app for Raspberry Pi 3 and above. Same sort of program but lesser equipment requirement and currently actively being developed.

Hello all! I’ve spent the last several days thinking with the app. Everything is working well except “Now Playing”. Regardless of whether it’s connected to Kodi or Plex, I don’t get the poster art to come up. It shows Now playing, and the runtime information, and tag line at the bottom, just no poster art. Has anybody else run into this! I’ve ordered a tv to run this on and have the pc ready to go, just can’t get past this one problem!

Most everyone has left the Windows App as its not supported anymore. Plex and Emby have changed so much that they dont sync anymore. MovieNow is the new app and is for Raspberry Pie. The developer of MoviePoster seems to have given up long ago.

For those still using the MoviePosterApp

There is a new Dev build available for anyone who'd like to test. As many of you know this has been in the works for quite awhile. This build includes updated plugins for Plex and Kodi (supports Kodi 18), enhancements to the WebRemote (poster detail editor, playlist viewer, etc.) and numerous fixes. As a dev build, there may be unknown issues or incomplete features.
MS .net 4.5.2 or above and MS Visual C++ runtime is a prerequisite for proper operation. There is no installer, simply extract the Archive with 7-zip and run MoviePoster.exe.

Download Dev Build 2.3.0.5 here: http://www.movieposterapp.com/Downlo...(4-30-2020).7z

Alternatively the same file is hosted on Google Drive

Looks like this is a huge update to the app. Emby is confirmed fully working with its connection again and the webremote is a huge upgrade!

So far this version has been running smooth but the real test is 2-3 days (24/7) without any crashes.

Yep already had my first crash but I am happy to see the Plex monitoring working again inside the home and remote. This has been something I wanted in the Movie Now Pi to do but hasn't gotten there without say dialing in an IP( with User Name and PW for the Plex Account) but only to one IP address Hopefully sometime it will.
But I do support both of the programs Movie Poster and Movie Now.

Any chance we could get a link the Facebook Page for this Movie Poster Software Please?

So glad it's here again.
Have Fun

Thank you MidnightWatcher


Well I spoke to soon the Plex part seems to break after say 1 items plays and then lets say it goes back to displaying movie posters then someone starts another Plex item on the server local or outside the home and it breaks. Just keeps displaying the movie posters stored. Whats also strange is if restart or just start the computer up Plex doesn't just come on with it's icon as it normally did in the past.

Any thoughts or help would be very much appreciated.

Any Z83 mini PC or higher with Windows 10 should work fine. That's what I used to use.

Sure. I had a 32GB version and installed everything on a 64GB USB thumb drive.

is anyone else having any luck. I just downloaded it and it seems to be crashing a lot. I put it on one of my laptops and it can't seem to stay running smoothly at all. Is this a dead option and need to migrate to the raspberry pi version?

I had the same issue with MoviePoster. I had to stay with KODI 17 for my posters to work, but the app would still crash after a few hours. I made the decision to move to RP4 and try MovieNow. The setup is pretty basic and you'll be up and running in a few hours.
