I have a WD Live Hub and a WD Live TV. The Hub is all set up with album art and works perfectly. When I stream the content stored on the Hub to the WD Live TV the album art work does not appear. In the System menu i have media library set to ON on both devices.
so to be clear
you have a live hub, and have movies etc stored either on internal hard driver or external connected to the hub
and you are using the bult in twonky media server to stream the files to your WD TV in another room
most media servers do not send accompany images art work, xml files, etc
you should try to access it via network shares
that should allow the WD TV Live to see all the supporting files as well as the media
I am using a live hub and have all the movies stored on the internal drive. After you suggested it I tried network share but it still does not work.
Is it Live Streamer or Play?
Anyway Live Streamer should show artwork when accessing Hub through network share.
I do have the live streamer. Still can figure out why the artwork isn’t coming up.
1 thing I can think of
thumbgails should come up regardless
it’s just a file in the directory
rely on the xml to point to the correct location
if your XML’s have relative paths, the relative paths would be correct for 1 device but wrong for the other device
you would need to use absolute paths to have moviesheets working on both devices
Can you briefly explain how to do this?
I’m no thumbgen expert, and not at home to look at the options
you can check by opening one of the xml’s from your PC
relative paths typically looks something like
it has some dots in the path
if you xml’s have path’s like that you’ll need to recreate them with absolute paths
also note, I do not actually use XML’s in my set up
maybe somebody else is already familiar with setting up absolute paths in thumbgen
but it’s probably as easy as looking through the thumbgen settings, I’m pretty sure I remember one for absolute vs relative paths
