WD is revamping the Issues area.   If you look at the status summary on the right side, you'll see that Raphael has jumped on a number of issues yesterday (2/15...)  


So, cut them a little slack while they sort out their house... :smileywink:

Seems you need to delete all .wd_tv folders and metathumb files and let the player rebuild your thumbnail gallery. I did that and it's now pretty much back to normal.


* Edit - Okay, definitely not fixed. Although I was able to re-set my thumbnails by doing the above, as soon as I started editing thumbs or adding new ones that parent tree ignored the folder.jpg again and used the first thumb available.


Annoying, but at least I know how to work around it until a fix is in place.

too busy I guess fixing some MLB bug that affects 0.0001% of users rather than concentrating on obvious easy ones that affect everyone! :womanlol:

Unless this has not been fixed with the current firmware, we will close this issue out due to its age.
