Aeon Tajo Home Page

Power, Favorites and Weather
Photo I- Power. First of all, what you see here may not be what you see when the Power Icon sub menu is selected. These screenshots were acquired using a PC, so the options shown here are related to my PC. Consequently, if using an Android device you may see different power options. Shown here are Power Off System– Reboot– Suspend– Hibernate– and Quit.
Photo J- Favorites. If you have saved or designated any media Files as a Favorite, they will appear in the highlighted area shown.
Photo K- Weather.
Photo L– After selecting the Weather Icon, the next page you’ll see is the current (or overview) weather conditions for the location you have selected. Furthermore, you will also see 10 day Forecast- 36 Hour Forecast- Weekend and Hourly Forecasts.
The above Photo is an example of what you’ll see when selecting the Power Icon directly. Two more options are found there: Settings and Favorites. Lots of shortcuts are available in this skin.
Concerts and Pictures
Photo’s M & N are pretty straightforward and need no explanation.
Accessing System is as easy as… well clicking on the System Icon ! As a result, you will be able to adjust a few more settings that are not customarily found in the Sub-menu. You will notice at the bottom of the page there is a brief description of what each separate icon has available.
To open the Add-on Browser:
Under the APPS Icon, enable the Sub-menu and click on Add-on browser.
In addition to My Add-ons, you will also find Install from repository, Install from zip file and Search.
Select File manger from the Sub-menu from the System Icon.
Click on Add source and then on None (not shown, sorry my bad)
Enter the url source and select Done when completed. Make sure you have entered the url address correctly. This includes periods . commas , and a common mistake ( i confess to this one) not adding the second forward slash /. A simple mistake will cause an error not allowing that url source to be entered.
You will then be asked to give the source a name. Give it a name you will remember or is appropriate to the url name and click on OK to exit. See the photo below for Steps 3 & 4.
How to remove GUI Audio in Aeon Tajo Skin
I actually came across this by accident. I don’t normally have the sound on my PC when researching these skins. But I happened to try a Movie File and when I increased the volume, I heard a secondary audio. Having never experienced this before, I discovered there was a melody playing in the background.
While pleasant, I really didn’t want it enabled (it turns off automatically when a Movie or Audio File starts) If you wish to disable this feature, please do the following steps:
Select the SYSTEM Icon.
Click on INTERFACE.
Move the Cursor to the RIGHT and DOWN to CONFIGURE SKIN.
In HOME WINDOW, move to the right and scroll DOWN to “Don’t play melodies while in Home Screen” as shown above.
Click anywhere in the area to disable the radio bar as shown.
And you’re done.
The Aeon Tajo Skin is an easy skin to use and get around within Kodi 18 and has become one of my favorite skins to use. Pleasant on the eyes, can be used with either a remote or a Mouse / Keyboard combination. Which is what I prefer, but that’s personal and may not be right for you. We don’t try to show you how to set up a skin, that’s entirely up to you. If you wish to know more about setting up a skin in Kodi please try this link here or here.
