Digital Movie Poster Display: 2014 Movie Poster Collection

For those of you who have been following my Digital Movie Poster Display project (Part1, Part 2, Part 3), here is a collection of posters from 2014. All of the posters were sourced from IMPAwards (great place to find movie posters!), and had original files that were no smaller than 1,500 pixels on the long side, but most were quite a bit bigger. There are 1,112 posters in this file, all resized to 1920×1080 pixels, and rotated to fit on a standard 16:9 television screen.…

Digital Movie Poster Display: 2015 Movie Poster Collection

So I’ve recently been revisiting my Digital Movie Poster Display project (Part1, Part 2, Part 3). Some of the posters that I had originally put on there were not of the best quality, and my organization of them made it almost impossible to sort through them all to find the bad ones. So I decided to take time to re-download them all, and make sure that everything is up to par on the quality side. IMPAwards allows you to sort through their poster archive based…

Cords Against Harmony “Trivia Pack” For Kodi

I started working on these quite some time ago as a way to promote my crappy little half-assed expansions for Cards Against Humanity, but they got put on the back burner, and I never got around to publishing them. For those of you who are familiar with add-ons for Kodi such as Cinema Vision, the slides play as such; the black card plays as the question, the clue reveals two white cards, and the answer slide shows four white cards.

Kodi Cinema Vision X-Men Trivia Packs

Here’s a little something for the Nerd Cave if you’re using Kodi (formerly XBMC) with the Cinema Experience Cinema Vision add-on to run your Home Theater Computer. For those of you who don’t know what the Cinema Experience Cinema Vision add-on does, quite simply, it allows you to recreate the actual cinema experience by playing trivia slides, trailers, and public services announcements before the movie starts, just like when you go to the theater. When Mrs. Th0r and I go out to the movies, one…

Digital Movie Poster Display Part 3: A Taste Of Pi

Well you’ve set up your digital poster display using the TV’s slideshow feature, and a USB drive, but have hit the limits of the television’s firmware… it’s time to try a taste of Raspberry Pi! In this article I’ll cover how to use a Raspberry Pi unit to control your digital signage. I normally try to be pretty light-hearted (dare I say funny?) when I write, but there’s a lot of technical information to cover this time around… so if this article seems a bit…
