3 Using TV Maze Integration

Once you have all your settings configured, TV Maze works in three ways. As a background service, a context menu item, and run from the Program Addons area.

3.1 Background Service

TV Maze runs in the background listening for library additions (to add shows to and mark episodes as acquired on TV Maze), library deletions (to mark episodes as watched on TV Maze), and the playing of episodes (to mark them as watched on TV Maze).

3.2 Context Menu

You can use the Kodi context menu on TV shows and episodes. For TV shows you can follow, unfollow, tag, and untag a show. For episodes you can mark as episode as acquired, watched, or skipped. You can also unmark an episode.

3.3 Run from Program Addons

TV Maze can add one or more of the TV shows in your Kodi library to your follow list on TV Maze, remove shows from your TV Maze follow list, and add/remove tags from your TV Maze TV shows. You can also open the settings from the menu that is presented when you run the addon.

5 Beta Testing

If you are interested in beta testing new versions of this add on (or just like being on the bleeding edge of up to date), you can install beta versions (Leia or later, there will be no more updates for earlier versions) from my addon beta repository - either Kodi 18 (Leia) or Kodi 19 (Matrix) and later (these are zip downloads). Please note that for Matrix you need to set Update Official Addons to ANY REPOSITORY in Settings > System > Addons.
