SageMC 6.3.9a_8 prerelease

Changes Since v6.3.9a_7
  • Optimized context sensitive fanart for navigation speed.

The tradeoff for speed is that the STV will not first filter out items that do not have fanart before randomly picking a video from a group for the fanart background. So if the item does not have fanart, no fanart background will be displayed.

Aloha,
Mike

Edit: File Removed

SageMC 6.3.9a_23 prerelease

Changes Since v6.3.9a_8
  • Numerous fanart bug fixes and optimizations.
  • Combined all fanart options into a single fanart configuration screen available under Global UI Options >> Display as well as in the options menus in the Video Library and Program Info Screens.
  • Added options to enable/disable fanart posters in Video Library group listings, Program Info Screen, and Video OSD.
  • Fixed broken tables due to features added in SageTV v6.5.13
  • Added options for custom Recorded TV and TV Subgroup screens to accommodate 3rd party (read jaminben's ) plugins.

Instructions

This assumes you are currently running the latest release of SageMC.

Unzip the attached archive and copy the new STV file into

...\SageTV\STVs\SageTV3

Download and install the latest Phoenix API libraries (v1.19 or higher), available in the external utilities section of the downloads area.

(Note: If you are using stuckless' Batch Metadata Tools plugin, make sure you have updated to the latest version. It includes all necessary files for the latest Phoenix API so that you do not have to download the Phoenix API separately)

Restart SageTV if you had to update the phoenix api or BMT plugin.

In SageMC, go to Settings and select 'Load STV'.
Choose the new STV file and hit OK.

Aloha,
Mike

Edit: Files removed. See last post for latest available version.
