Re: Mojo for the SMP. (Updated 11-09-11)

[ Edited ]

 




I found the file in the Mojo/Images folder. Look for "welcome_logo.png".  I used Photoshop (or any image editing software) to crop off "WDTV Live Hub"  and replaced it with "WDTV LIve SMP". I replaced the original with the modified file before zipping and installed on SMP.


My welcome logo doesn't show the "WDTV Live Hub" only the Icon, so I presumed there is another file somewhere to alter.

Cheers


The "WDTV Live Hub" writing is in the "welcome_logo.png" it is just very hard to see when opening in an imaging editor because of the white color. I used Photoshop and placed the image on top of a black layer to edit the writing.

Edit:  Changing the source with the red button from Media Server to Network Samba seemed to fix the problem! 

 

Now I am able to see the moviesheet background.  It is still not displaying the cover box thumbnail at all though.  All I see is a generic film reel icon, even though the background and XML meta data is showing up.  I am using the "TW No Cover Box" in the spare sheet tab, and it's properly generating an image, but it's not showing up on my WDTV.

 

 

Thanks for the edit.  MIne seems to be working now as well  I still have a lot of learning to do on getting this all to work right.

Re: Mojo for the SMP.

Wazzey, your post confuses me.

Did you fix it or not?

 

What firmware you running?

 

If you are on 1.04 the thumbnail cover art will not be visible when you convert from .png to .jpg. It will be a generic film reel.

 

If on 1.06 I think it shows both .jpg and .png cover art thumbs.

 

I'm going to guess you never got the thumbnail transparency to work.  Is there anyone using the SMP/Mojo that has?

Re: Mojo for the SMP.

Well I had everything working well as far as the metadata goes until I switched to NFS from Samba. Anyone have any ideas why NFS wouldn't display the metadata?

 

Thanks,

and got it working on a WD TV Live (Gen3) with Mojo?

I have tried it several hours but i think i don't understand thumbgen :smileysad:

Re: Mojo for the SMP. (Updated 11-09-11)

Im at the same stage as most other owners everything working but the thumbnail is cut off and the transparency is not working. Any idea when there will be a fix for this, its great whats been done so far just needs finishing off so SMP owners get the same view as hub owners. 

 

Tinwarble??

@brnwbasti

 

I like Lstar's moviesheets too, but I have not attempted to get them working for the SMP. They were not designed for the SMP - therefore there would probably be a lot of compatibility issues. But I suggest taking a look at this thread for more info.

Thumbgen is pretty easy to use once you get the hang of it.

I doubt there's ever going to be a fix for .png files. Apparently .png has been broken for quite a while.

There's a lot of information floating around about this issue. HUB owners have to do a FW rollback to get .png files to work. SMP users simply cannot use proper .png's at all.

The more people that voice their concerns over this issue the higher probability that it will get fixed, so spread the word, otherwise forget it.

Re: Mojo for the SMP. (Updated 11-09-11)

I hope I have the correct viewpoint on this but I seem to have Thumbgen working OK.  However I always add 2 other files of my own, folder.jpg and MovieTitle.jpg (where MovieTitle is the actual name of the movie, eg The Help.jpg).  Both these files are 120 x 180.

 

Then I run Thumbgen.  The Thumbgen HowTo says to put a tick next to "Spare Movie Sheet" and set it as .png.  I have deslected this.  I will use the movie "The Help" as an example. 

 

I finish up with a folder with 7 files:

 

The Help.avi

folder,jpg

The Help.jpg

The Help.avi.tgmd

The Help.avi_sheet.jpg

The Help.xml

The Help_cover.jpg

 

This seems to work OK for me.

 

If necessary I get into the .xml sheet and  and over write the <trailer></trailer> with <genre>Crime/Drama</genre>  This then fills the Genre heading on the movie sheet.

 

Sometimes I have to update the "Overview" with info I have copy pasted from either IMDB or Wikipedia.

Re: Mojo for the SMP. (Updated 11-09-11)

Whatever works for you I suppose, but .JPG's look distorted on the HUB and SMP.

 

There's a reason most of the theme developers use .PNG

 

It's unfortunate WD had to break it in a firmware update. 

 

All of you guys reading this thread really need to start showing some support here or this isn't going to get fixed.

It's disgusting that Tinwarble went to that much trouble documenting and explaining this issue and only 2 others bothered to post their support on the issue. So click and speak!


@syedali

 

Regarding your post - If you've only had the SMP for 4 days I'd say return it for the HUB if $100 more isn't going to break your bank. That's what I would have done had I know I was screwed with terrible quality cover art and an inability to utilize themes to improve my situation.
