thats why you cant connect , kodi leia has change a lot in the json things when you use password......

please try this:

in the config.js file put the url of your kodi like this:

username : [email protected]_ip

(no spaces)

* example var host = 'kodi:[email protected]'; // kodi IP

strange i have try now in my setup with password and with the add that i told you in config.js is working just fine.....did you change the port? leave the port 9090 and not 8080!

8080 is HTTP port
9090 is TCP PORT (json format get/post) * this is movienow app needs to communicate with kodi

This app looks to be running into the same problem as the Movie Poster App when accessing movie posters in Leia. The Now Playing and Coming Soon banners show that the application is connecting to Kodi, but no posters are displaying from my player. I am running Kodi 18.1.

My app is tested and working with KODI leia , the port in the app config.js must be 9090 and not http port 8080 or custom!

let me know your feedback.

question :

If I have a raspberry pi in my office .. can i install this on that ...and have it stream the posters to my SONY A9F in my theatre via my wired home network ?

Or does this only run within certain apps ?

Thanks

I retract my statement. On a whim I decided to re-scrape a movie using the TMDb scraper in Kodi (I always scrape my media meta and images using Ember). The poster then displayed properly in the poster app during playback. There was no change to any image file or NFO, but clearly something was changed in the Kodi database after re-scraping. I will open the dB and have a look. Just wanted to report back my findings in case it helps someone else.

if all (rasp running my app) and your tv (SONY A9F) is all in the same network yes! , just in your tv browser put the url of raspberry (example 192.168.1.100).

Is there a way we can add more options to control how the app works? Looking for options around the frequency of the change of poster. Coming Soon poster only showing the movies that are not watched yet vs everything in the library etc. Happy to help with any testing you need for the next 10 days before I get busy with work.

Yes all this it will be supported in the next version!!!!

the first version was released very soon because a lot people want just the basic from a movie poster display....and the movieposter app it was not working with the last release of kodi....

the second version will be more advanced with many options!

Thanks 4 the support and your feedback guys!

Thank you for the fantastic app. One more question would it be possible to show different banners for audio system etc. I have a Dolby Atmos setup and would like to see that vs Dolby TrueHD. Also use Klipssch and Onkyo logos in there as those are my equipment in the hometheater.

The movieposter app was retrieve the flags from the movies in kodi to show which audio & etc.....i have build the movienow app with different logic! i prefer to show what audio is my home theatre support and not any movie.....i will upload a little later the psd file which is the bottom banner of the poster.....and you can change it with any logos your theatre supports!

http://movienow.website/bottom.psd

here is the psd file for the bottom banner (for this theatre features..) , you can edit the file in photoshop
put any logos you want and then just save the file as bottom.png , then connect with sftp/ftp to the raspberry
(username pi , password movienow) , and upload the bottom.png file in the directory /var/www/html/ , when it
asks to replace the file just press yes/ok....then restart the app from the app interface , and enjoy
your new bottom banner!

I have invested in a rather pricey atom mini pc running windows 10 with dual dvd outputs connected directly to my two large vertical displays. The old movie app works ok but has lots of bugs including losing all its settings randomly, losing its dual display settings often , multiple frequent out of memory exception crashes and could never get it to work with kalaidescape .

In addition I had asked for a feature request to allow http control of multiple functions most important of which was ability to dim displays. My theater is open on one walll with columns and the movie poster displays are in the next door kitchen. They need significant dimming when the projector is running to prevent glare. My problem is that I have multiple sources for my theater including directv, nvidia shield for Netflix and amazon etc, a couple of older Sony 400 disc dvd jukeboxes, newer oppo Blu-ray player and kalaidescape and I know of no way to monitor all these various sources to pull what's playing. If anyone does please chime in. So when the theater is on I want to either show what is playing on the movie posters if possible or revert to just showing IMDb downloads of current and upcoming movies. I use homeseer as home automation so I can easily issue direct http commands or use rest protocol to dim displays. Right now I just turn them off during theater on state.

My questions....
Will you ever code this for windows 10?
Will you ever allow for multiple displays?
Will you add in http control of basic functions including display dimming?
Will you include IMDb download of current and upcoming movies?
Any ideas on how to integrate so many different sources to determine what's playing?

Hello , you have very Compilacted setup , you need a "custom version" specific for your setup......sorry no windows version...a least not in the near future.....for multiple display you can have one raspberry for each monitor......the first version has already the dim feature when you play a movie....as for imdb yes in the next versions......

Hello,

I tried setting this up last night with some issues:

I was able to get it working for abit....but now after rebooting once the display just ends up showing web browser with google.com page?

I have double checked everything...config.js and all is exactly as it should be and as it was when it worked the first time. I also checked the Kodi box and its config has not changed either.



Thanks,
