Hi Pecinko,

Just wondering if you forgot to put in a version jump from 3.2.3 to 3.2.4? I don't seem to be able to get the latest to show as PleXBMC 3.2.4...assuming it was just forgotten?

I'll re-grab now and hopefully it'll show 3.2.5....

Hmmm, I tried un-installing 3.2.3, before installing your latest from GIT (3.2.5) and it refuses to change from 3.2.3...any ideas?

Forget it...I restarted XBMC in-between updates and it's all good now...sorry about that...

Are you sure you are downloading ZIP from

https://github.com/pecinko/plugin.video....-endpoints

Make sure to snatch right branch. I'll merge it to main branch once I do a few more things so it will be a bit easier. If you are using right location but it still refuses to install - just copy it over older one.

Just wondering, is there any reason you don't include the cursor.wav and reference to it in sounds for left, right, up and down clicks?

I usually manually add it in but with all the skin changes I am doing it often and just wondered if there was a reason you didn't use it?

Two reasons - it is sooo boring to hear that sound every time you move left/right... Second it is _very annoying_ sound you hear when you hold left/right to fast scroll. I'm sure you have your own good reasons why you want it but for me it would be like self imposed torture.

Big thanks to Pecinko and all involved developing this great alternative to Plex Media Center. I am happily using PleXBMC and Amber for some month now (long time Plex user) and one thing I am still not getting to work properly is the recently added / recently aired sections accessible on the horizontal submenus. It is working for my movie sections but sadly not with tv shows. I have no idea what I am doing wrong.

What I want to do is have the house set up with different users so that everyone has there own on deck settings to track progress of the tv shows etc. I have this working fine when using other clients such as the iOS ones where each user has been setup to have their own myplex user with access to my server. When I login to the options on the pleXBMC add-on with a different userid it seems to ignore that and always shows the default on deck settings.

Do you know if this should work the way I described or is this a feature not implemented yet due to multiple user support only being for plexpass members currently.

Thanks again for the hard work that goes into this.

I would try making separate profiles in xbmc. Be sure to choose that settings are not shared and enable login screen. Then set main profile to use main myplex login and kids profile to login with their own (in plexbmc settings). Should work.

Let me know how if that works.

Thanks for the advice, however it is not working as expected. Maybe this is because everything is local (i.e. all in the same house) but no matter what I put into the plexbmc settings the on deck status is always the one of the default server.I tested with the plex web UI to see what the difference was in the calls to get the on deck sections and noticed this:

This is from PleXBMC:

Oct 29, 2013 11:33:22 [0x10b473000] DEBUG - Request: GET /library/sections/2/onDeck [192.168.1.249:41426] (5 live)
Oct 29, 2013 11:33:22 [0x10b473000] DEBUG - It took 0.002802 sec to serialize a list with 28 elements.

And this is from the Plex Web UI:

Oct 29, 2013 11:31:41 [0x10bb9a000] DEBUG - Request: GET /library/sections/2/onDeck?type=4&X-Plex-Container-Start=0&X-Plex-Container-Size=72 [86.145.194.148:38439] (5 live)

Oct 29, 2013 11:31:41 [0x10bb9a000] DEBUG - It took 0.000263 sec to serialize a partial list with 2 elements (2 total).

I have no idea if that makes sense in debugging? Does this work for anyone else?

Pecinko, would it be possible to hide the PleXBMC addon from Video Addons or place it in the services category where the plexbmc helper is placed?

No, that is controlled by XBMC.

Thanks for letting me know. Any clues what could lead to my empty recently added / recently aired sections in tv shows?

Send me a PM with your debug log (enable debug in plexbmc settings) and I'll have a look.

I used to be able to mark something as watched or unwatched via the context menu. Now if i choose watched/unwatched from context the status dosen't change any more.

Hi,
the PleXBMC setting "Shelf items" in the "Look and feel" category doesn't work correctly for me.
It works when I set it to "Both" (Recently added and on deck), but doesn't for the other two settings.
When set to "Recently added", it still shows both in my TV Shows section and when set to "On Deck", it shows the on deck items twice, as shown in the screenshot:

I am using the PleXBMC version from this thread and an Amber GIT version from (I think) yesterday. Any idea what causes this?
