Just a quick update that I’ve just released a new version of TVVN (0.9.8) to the official repo. Based on past experiences, it will take a couple days to hit the mirrors. Meanwhile (and going forward for that matter) you can go to the github release page to get the latest version.

I have XBMC run a slideshow of family photos in screensaver mode. Problem? XBMC caches the images automatically and therefore the photos are replaced by low-resolution, blurry cached copies. This is noticeably annoying especially if you have large, hi-res TV. I approached the developer of the screensaver addon about the problem but it is out of his hands because the cache are managed system-wide (within XBMC of course).

I recently ditched my aging 12.04-Ubuntu-based XBMC setup to go with OpenELEC which is purposed-built and thus very fast. Because it is so streamlined, you lose the flexibility of a full-blown distro setup. One of which was the lack of lircd support on the recent builds. With my previous setup, I could use lircd to map a particular keyboard/remote key to a script that would kill and restart xbmc when it hang.

Great news! The long-anticipated update has been released. v0.9.1 is now in the official repo, so make sure you force-refresh in case xbmc was too lazy to do it automatically. Thanks to your error-reportings and donations, your continued support make it worthwhile to keep maintaining this addon.
