Just updated to the latest KODI 18 test build of OSMC for the Vero 4K and everything is working great so far, except for the CinemaVision add-on. Evidently the log error states that, “ERROR: Control 201 in window 13001 has been asked to focus, but it can’t” which leaves me with with a blank, black screen and no audio just as it attempts to play movie trailers. I can exit out and use OSMC again at least, so it’s not a hard lockup.
Here’s my dilemma. CinemaVision is the only add-on I truly care about. It has become such an integral role in my home theater over the past few years and I’ve even purchased numerous personalised home theater intros through Fiverr and Ivipid to use with it. Guests were always impressed with how it all came together playing trivia and / or trailers & video bumpers before the feature film and how it was able to control my Hue lighting. It made everything feel like a true cinema experience.
Unfortunately, it seems like development of CinemaVision has halted over the past few months, with version 1.1.1a8 being the last version available for download on Github. It was working fine apparently with KODI 18.0, but had been broken since 18.1 was released. I was hoping that it would work again with 18.2 but, alas, it doesn’t look like it will, at least not in its current form.
My sincere request to @sam_nazarko and any other OSMC developers is this. Would it be possible to make a working version of this outstanding add-on and bundle it with OSMC? I know it’s a tall order, but given the fact that it’s open source, relatively small (about 1 MB if I recall) and a highly sought after add-on, to include a working version with OSMC would position OSMC to be THE go-to Kodi-based solution for home theater enthusiasts such as myself, even moreso than it already is. For consumers like us, OSMC would set itself apart from the competition even further, and that would be a very good thing. I know for a fact that I would buy another Vero 4K(+), and I’m sure you’d find a few new customers as well.
