Alaska Resurface [WDTV LIVE HUB & SMP]

Hi, fuzz79dude

Yes, it’s pretty straight foward to enable the GUI backgrounds in Gallery View as Mochi Theme does.

One line of code and and a diffuse layer is all that is needed.

I don’t have time right now … but here’s a “Mockup Picture”  (if i have time over the weekend i will upload the mods)

Decided to have a “Quick Go” before settling down to a nite of Movies / Video Games and errrm … “Beverages” :wink:

Here it is … if there’s any bugs let me know (i did this quickly within 10mins … i thought it would take longer than that)

Personally i like the “Fade Effect” for backdrops … to set this go to 

Setup > Photo Settings > Slideshow Transition > Fade

and (if you want multiple backdrops … select 3 seconds Slideshow Interval Time … for *semi static backdrops* choose 5 mins)

One question: you (know that I use the WD TV Live media player (Gen 3)? :wink: Ok, I don´t tell you that :stuck_out_tongue:

Wow…

Ok,
So…one last question, think I know it can’t be done though. Is it even slightly possible to enable linksheet or background etc for folders? Or another suggestion that doesn’t say 'don’t use folders, lol) I am also having trouble getting xml data to show for folders too, I have tried several read options.

Thanks dude

i was hoping someone could help me install this theme in all its glory. I have managed to installed the theme and am now stuck.

  1. what files structure should i have in my root e.g video, photos, music?

  2. how should filter the file view? folders?

  3. how do i get the cool pictures for the movies and the info? I want high quality so do i use thumbgen? 

I just want it to look like how it does in the screenshots.

Simple set up is best:
Music Folder>Music Album>Music Tracks
Video Folder>Video (named correctly)
Photo Folder>Photo Album>Photos

If on Pc, make sure they are shared. Select media source on wdtv>select folder. The rest prettying takes care of itself :slight_smile:

Sure, the theme can be modified to enable Linksheets (for files and/or folders) if you want… then it gets complicated

(Lots of reading, extra work, 3rd party software involved if you wish to go down this path)

If you have a WDTV Live Hub… Linksheets *easy*

If you have a WDTV SMP Linksheets  *30 Megabyte Limit for Linksheets*

If you have a WDTV SMP Linksheets *custom firmware bypass the 30 Megabyte Limit*

Alaska Resurface Theme was designed as a

Non Moviesheet / Non Linksheet / Non Thumbgen Theme with *KISS*  technology in mind (for myself and others to use)

*Edit*  Granted, the “Default” Moviesheet display in Gallery View was easy to implement … because it requires no extra work … it’s using the default Mochi behaviour to display it

(it uses the internal scraper to generate the xml backdrop streaming links from tmdb)

@JoeySmyth: thanks, not sure I wanna mess around too much!! Ha! Wel, I will do a test, but doubt it will run a-swell as you have it set up!

“Finally the “Theme” designer includes these lines of XML code into their Theme which makes the “Linksheets” appear
For Gallery View: <image image=”@@browse_text" x=“0” y=“0” w="1280"h=“720” scale=“100” bg=“1”/>
For All Other Views: "

Where would this be placed? And would it only show under thumbs, clock and so on? I wouldn’t want it over the top of everything.

Thanks

Hey!

 

So, I added these lines of code to rv_gallery_browse_page.xml using notepad++ and uploaded my folder image (without .jpg) - the folder on WDTV displays the linksheet, but overlays everything!! :;( This code is at the end, just before

 

<image image="@@browse_text" x=“0” y=“0” w="1280"h=“720” scale=“100” bg=“1”/>

 

Pleaase please tell me how to make this as background image, so everything else is still on top, I wouldnt even mind if that nice overlay you have is in front!!

 

So so close…is last thing I need to get full resluts I am looking for!

 

#699

Ha! Sorted it, just placement of text was all…So, the only thing is the text xml for folder! been reading on this, has anyone got a final solution on how to achieve this?

:slight_smile:

metadata text will not display for folders.

if you want text to display on the linksheet then you will have to design a linksheet with text on it.

Example:

Here’s an abandoned example (i no longer have the thumbgen template … lost in a reformat)
