So I noticed that artist slideshow is not working.

A quick look in ~/.xbmc/addons/skin.xeebo/720p/MusicVisualisation.xml shows that while the script is started, there is not MultiImage control for the images.

To fix it just edit the above file and add:

Code:
<control type="multiimage">
    <posx>0</posx>
    <posy>0</posy>
    <width>1280</width>
    <height>720</height>
    <imagepath background="true">$INFO[Window(Visualisation).Property(ArtistSlideshow)]</imagepath>
    <aspectratio>true</aspectratio>
    <timeperimage>5000</timeperimage>
    <fadetime>2000</fadetime>
    <randomize>true</randomize>
</control>

To the very top of the <controls> tag.

On my system, I also had to change
Code:
<onload>RunScript(script.artistslideshow)</onload>
to
Code:
<onload>RunScript(script.artistslideshow, daemon=True)</onload>
to make sure the script noticed the artist updates.

Hope this helps someone.
