      KODITALK TEAMS UP WITH "DarkIPTV" TO OFFER YOU THE BEST PREMIUM¬†IPTV¬†& VOD¬†SERVICE That's right people I have always said that I would try to make and keep this forum one of the best¬†KODI¬†forums in the scene, Not only are we growing in numbers but we also have some of the best people on our team in the world of¬†KODI¬†today.¬† THE TEAM :-¬†¬†@BluesDragon¬†@Trademark¬†@DarkIPTV¬†@Tech Timeruuu¬†@ChrisB¬†and¬† myself. Well now teaming up with us and in conjunction with KodiTalk we have Mr¬†@DarkIPTV¬†with his brand new premium¬†IPTV¬†&¬†VOD¬†Service. So now KodiTalk is the official home of DARK¬†IPTV¬†Service. KodiTalk will be the official contact forum for this premium service and there will be a¬†section on the forum that is totally dedicated to News, Support and any issues you should have when using this service. I can not promise 24 hour support but any issues will be dealt with as soon as we can. I can however say that due to time differences around the world and having our great staff scattered around the world that it is not normally long before one of us is on the forum to help you out should you have any problems. So for all the latest News, Guides and Issues with this¬†IPTV¬†service keep an eye on his¬†section on our forum and watch out for FREE TRIAL announcements and updates. AGAIN all I ask of you all, and especially now we using more server space for this service is that you¬†click around a few of our adverts if you have the time as this does help us pay for our server costs. ?‚̧ԳŹ ¬† To report any issues or start/read topics, please¬†CLICK HERE and post a new topic. Thanks all ūüôŹ ¬† Get the standalone addon here:¬†¬†https://getdark.org/repo/¬†or install it from¬†The Beast Wizard

Beast October with black backgrouds

24 posts in this topic

Hi, sorry if this is a known issue but I couldn't find any reference to it.

Fresh start and all is working except I have no background images. Its just a black screen. All menu's are there and working. All add-ons there and working too.

I do have background images in the system menu but not on the home screen.

I'm running on LibreElEC 8.2.

Hi @CodeJACK¬†switching skin to aeon nox (it's a skin not an app) ‚ėļÔłŹIf that doesn't work let me know I'll suggest other options. Thanks! Sarah

Hey Sarah and BlueDragon. I tried re-installing and fresh start but no background images yet. I could do a total wipe of the system but not sure that would achieve much

@CodeJACK & @Brandoid757 from blue kodi screen (with beast installed) go to settings gear symbol, interface settings, change skin from estuary to Aeon Knox, save changes. It should be converted then. Lmk ?Sorry I didn't clarify instructions before.

Thanks Sarah for trying but swapping the skin is not the issue. Aeon Know is selected but the background images for each of the home screens (Movies, TV Shows, Beast Sports, etc etc etc) are all black.

I tried going through all the setting in the skin but I can see where the images are coming from to check is the directory is even there. Maybe you could tell me where the images should be and ill check the local file system?

This might be an issue with LibreELEC only ????

Yes I think it is¬†a libreElec issue, possibly an extra step needed.¬†let me look into it a little further & get back to you both soon. ‚ėļÔłŹ

Thanks Sarah. All of the skin settings for background location and set to "none" for me. I can get something to appear by choosing the random options so I'm happy to settle for one of them. I do miss the look of the beast themed images though :-)

Ok everyone I think I found it compliments of a great friend of the Beast @Soulless_Builds (twitter handle) 

add special://home to the source section in file manager (it said none above for you all) Then go to the skin settings and for each section select backgrounds. You will have to select the source I just said and look through all the home folders for the background folder and set the backgrounds.

in the meantime I will get with Chris & get this fixed for next time ? lmk your outcomes. 

 

Thanks Sarah

Excellent! I’m so happy! I’m so sorry it took me so long everyone, I’ve had a lot going on personally & especially around the first times I replied. Thank you so much for your patience. 

Also - I‚Äôve shared all this info with Chris & the next update should have Beast back to normal install ‚ėļÔłŹ Along with other adjustments making it excellent again! Anytime you need help just post and/or tag me please ?

thanks! Sarah

Still an issue for the latest build.

Is this a folder / \  thing? I presume the windows deployed beast does not have this issue?
