Not really, I prefer IMdb myself. Maybe a poll could show which ratings people prefer ?

I've made a smart playlist, which contains movies from a set. I then set this playlist as a main menu item and display a VPL widget to show featured movies from this set. All OK so far.

But, when I select the main menu item, the next view displays one item: the movie-set, which I have to select to open en show all movies inside.

I'd like to get rid of that extra click. In other words: when I select the main menu item, I immediately open the movie set.

Is this possible? Smile

Well... imdb ratings, rotten tomatos ratings, movie meter ratings, other scraper rating etc.... i think "rating" covers them all.

hi
today i switched my htpc from eden to frodo nightly now i'm running aeon nox 3.0 (from passion xbmc). (everithing at last release)
i'm going to configure my xbmc as i think it have to be.
here some reports:
1. the time panel goes out of the screen (i don't think it depends from screen calibration) my resolution is 1920*1080
2. in video file mode the skin ignore fanart.jpg and folder.jpg
here a picture.

1) known, frodo is not supported.
2) support for files view won´t be extended. use library mode.

Aeon-Nox 3.0 is meant to work on eden not frodo yet, phil65 said it a few times already.

Edit: too late Wink

I just switched recently to Aeon NOX and must say this skin is now my favorite. It absolutely fits all my scenarios i use XBMC for. Expecially for all that customisation options.
Before I was using bundled confluence with all the changes i need for playlists done manually directly in skin xml files.
Despite of above may I dare to list some extra wishes to the skin functionality. I apologize in advance in case these topics were already discussed before. I went through entire thread reading all the 148 pages but could have missed something.

1.Most critical for me - I really suffer without Wide List view mode as it provided with confluence skin. It would be extremely fantastic to add it to AEON NOX. For myself I have changed ListView.xml to make this view wide just removing big poster and changing the with of the title are. While small posters i have added to the list replacing studio logos.
This view is used for some video streaming addons, especially for IPTV, where posters represent tv chanel logos, so have to be placed in front of each line in the list. And title appears to be very long representing time, name, cast, plot in single string. Perfect solution would be to add another Wide List view, do you think it is possible?

2. I am using smart playlists a lot and I like to place them in submenu. My small complain is about the size of submenus. Is possible to add an option of bigger sub menu as it is done for home menu. Sub menu with 50% height respect home menu would be just fine.

3. Absolutely not important but just a matter of taste. Rotating switch of movies and episodes widget between posters and plot view is a fantastic idea. But i would prefer to have rotation in vertical direction not horizontal. Will look less "massive" the animation plus we have to press up and down to switch, so vertical rotation is intuitively expected. Same for artist slideshow widget.

Then there are some bugs i noticed. Currently i am on Eden stable release with NOX 3.0.0.1337127873

1. extended info widget for video playing in backgroud. There is an overwlapping of 2 columns for plot and cast. And i agree with some users that font size for artist biography should be increased, as well as for plot and cast for video playing. Maybe widget width can be increased in order to fit bigger font.

2. I have some problems with weather page. Can not get working Weather Underground provider. Looks like the skin thinks that this is Weather plus plugin, in side panel shows all the options for 10days, 36 hours, weekend forecast with maps option. Like it was for Weather Plus. The only plugin which works for me is Weather Online but i do not like it.

3. Small feature. When navigating in side quick navigation panel, pressing left just closes this panel returning to sidepanel open. But when pressing right it closes quick nav panel, closes sidepanel and opens side panel again. All with animation affect thus resulting in some unnecessary open close animation for sidepanel.


Thats it for the moment.
Thank you again.

concerning fonts: no, I won´t make any bigger font size changes for 3.0 (perhaps a bit adjusting, but no bigger changes). i´m aware that we do not use the biggest fonts at some places, but that was always the case with aeon skins.
if I would do that, then I would have to do that for many more labels. i can read everything perfectly on a 40` monitor from 3 meters distance.

will look at the overlappin labels.
bug 2 isn´t a bug, you have to use newest weather wunderground addon.
i fixed bug 3 yesterday already.

Has anyone else had any trouble with music artist logos not being displayed? Im seeing existing artists logos displayed just fine, but any newly added artists are not. Checked and double checked that the artwork has been correctly downloaded to the folders, still nothing. Anyone got any ideas?

Running the latest passion repo update.

About the IMDb ratings, I changed it to Rating. I did so with a separate string ID so it's easily changed to whatever the user wants and wont get overwritten reinstalling XBMC.
Translators dont have to translate anything, I just copied the xbmc string id for Rating to each Nox language file.

Is it also possible to display rating as percentage? Rottentomatoes website displays e.g. 75% not a 7.5

most probably not a skin issue. check your debug log, could be helpful.

would only be possible with hacks.. nothing we will implement.

If you select and album in the info panel (on the right), you can't return to the artist info (or I don't find the way). Could this be done in this release?

This is not possible. Its an XBMC limitation that cant be worked around through hacking the skin.

I can't find a way to apply my selection, I'll see if i can make som screenshots to make it clearer!

This is fixed now. Press select on a filter and navigate left/right to change the value.
