Quick update...
Kodi 14.2 beta 1 got release AND the fixes include:
packaging of PIL module on Android. This fixes some script error when using weather add-on
which means QR-Code generation should work on Android as well :)

Is anyone using Kodi on Windows/Mac OS/iOS?
Does the QR-Code generation work for you on those platforms?

SOLVED (Solution can be found on the bottom)
Hi there I really hope someone can help me...

If got my new XPS13 (2015) yesterday and even though it's a really nice pice of hardware there are some problems (obviously ^^)

So I've got the QHD display (3200x1800) which doesn't quite work with all applications (like google chrome is awfull and isn't affected by the window scaling)

So I thought...
Well lets simpley change the resolution to 1920x1080 for now so I can at least work. Sadly apart from the original 3200x1800 there are only 4:3 ratio resolution (non of them is usable) so I added the 1920x1080 myself using xrandr.
But everytime I set the resolution to use my new one, it sets it, display flickers for a moment and than falls back to the original 3200x1080 (all via command-line). Same happen if I use the UI though.
Next I tried using a custom X11 conf which (it looks like) does set the 1920x1080 while beeing on the lockscreen (I'm using gdm btw) but once I log in, it falls back to the 3200x1800.

Solution
Problem: Changing to the new, manually added, resolution did not work because it immediately switched back to the original one
Solution: (For me at least) removing ~/.config/monitors.xml did the trick. You might have to restart GDM after removing/renaming the file

ALRIGHT!!!! I DID IT
The bad-boy was the ~/.config/monitors.xml
After removing that one I was able to set the resolution to 1920x1080 without it falling back :) Now that I can actually read stuff I can try to fix the other problems :D

So I've been working on a Notify linux-client (written in python) the past few days and even though it's working I'm not sure if I like the outcome ^^
Integration to init.d and systemd is still missing though.

Yesterday I've spent some time in updating the kodi-addon and the update is already added to the repository :)
Now there is no more need the disable/enable the addon once you changes some settings (even when you change the port or credentials ;))

If you encounter any problems let me know :)

Edit
Changes to call behavior didn't take effect without re-enabling the addon but I already fixed it and the update should be available soon :)

Alright, that is kinda awesome!
The components attached via magnets and the use of the battery as spacebar is genius!
If it would be available via amazon I would by one.. ^^

Yeah... that's about right :D
 
Only an hour and half to go until EVERY SINGLE Apple tech blog backpedals on everything they were criticizing about smartwatches about 8 months ago. Things to note:

1) Square is now definitely the best shape for a smartwatch. This is no longer a dull and nerdy shape.

2) One day battery life and nightly charging is no longer an issue, it is a standard.

3) Having to own/purchase and carry around another unique charger is now a privilege, not an inconvenience... cause magnets.

4) No price is too high. Any ridiculous amount announced today is a gift to us, the consumer.

5) The fact that it only works with one ecosystem is a feature, not a limitation. 

6) Any content displayed on such a tiny screen from maps to photos is no longer ridiculous, it's magical and amazing.

7) Daylight visibility or lack thereof is no longer a consideration or is even needed.

8) Apple "invented" the smartwatch.

Update: worse than I expected. I'm amazed how accurately I predicted #4 :)

Notify - Updates  - 
 
Sorry for the lack of updates the last few days..
Haven't had much time to work on anything really :/

Some of you may have noticed that if you get a notification on your phone (say from hangouts, gmail, inbox etc) and get ANOTHER notification from the same app they get merged into a new one. This results in 3 notification-events getting sent to a client (which is really annoying). Sadly I have yet to find a solution for this which is not as easy as I was hoping it to be.

Second would be that if you get a notification (say via hangouts) which will be displayed 5 sec. (on e.g. Kodi) but after 2 sec. you get another notification (this time from e.g. gmail) the first one goes away instantly (does not display for the full 5 sec.). This might be because of changes from Kodi 13 to Kodi 14. But still I'll try to get around this somehow.

I though I'll let you know that I'm aware of that and because I think those are the most annoying "bugs" I'll focus on that.

If you have anything else just let me know ;)

Time for a Update for you guys.

The Notify Kodi-Addon is now available from the official Kodi-Repository :)

You should first disable the old version, than uninstall it and than install the new version from the repository.

Once the new version is installed you might have to disable and enable it once for the service to run probably.
(Kodi still doesn't feel like starting a installed service after installing it :/)

Cant find it in the repository?
Go to:
System -> Settings -> Add-ons -> Get Add-ons
Select "Kodi Addon-Repository" and open the Context-menu (usually via the key c) and select Force refresh

Now you should be able to find it if you search for Noitify

Hm...Then it looks like we have to do some more invetigation...
Just to make sure. In the android-app, did you pin the "Notify" itself as well? If not, no notifications will be forwarded.
Also, you don't have to run the addon. the "run" function is only for displaying the QR-Code (if all dependencies are met).
The addon itself is a service which automatically starts once Kodi starts.

What is your host-os where Kodi is running on? (Windows, Linux, macos, Android, iOS)?

Just to let you guys know...

If you encounter problems with the QR-Code generation within Kodi, I know why this happens and I'm already working on a fix ;)

I'll update it later this day (I'm currently at work)

Edit 01/16/2015
Just to let you guys know, there is (sadly) a lot more to it. Because I can't just use a online-service to generate the QR-Code (cause of user-sensible data) I have to use a library to do so from within the addon.
This library however needs another one named PIL (Python Imaging Library) which isn't available as kodi dependency ANYMORE (has been though) and everything it tried so far to include it in the addon itself failed :/
According to rumors (I guess) PIL might be available with Kodi 14.1 again. So let's hope for the best :)
