MY EDITED THEME IS FAR FROM PERFECT, and as i don’t have much free time, updates won’t be coming “frequently” it may take months…so themers you are most welcome to make appropriate changes…but please give credit…
All credit goes to:

Movie sheet templates:
First download the Mega Template pack by Extremedigital:
and extract the content to ThumbGen 188.8.131.52\Templates\
Extract the above files and paste all folders in the following location ThumbGen 184.108.40.206\Templates\Template_Mega_Pack_1.7
Your version of thumbgen may differ.
go to options in thumbgen–>input/output Naming and change the main moviesheet to the following
and select png as the file type extension.
generate your moviesheet with either of the above template…and finally
rename the moviesheet generated to a jpg file …e.g. rename moviesheet.png to moviesheet.jpg
1. Do so manually don’t use any image editor to save a jpg, else the transparency will be lost.
1.1 You may also use a non-transparent moviesheet so just use a template with non-transparent background and keep the file format as .jpg
2.0 Media library on the LIVE HUB should be ON.
2.1 Your moviesheets should be accompanied with its respective metadata file else it won’t be displayed.

You can use the above to test the moviesheets…
As you can see in the screenshot below, we can in a sense keep the cover box.
First Read extremedigitals post’s about the dummy file structure here (its in the first post …): http://community.wdc.com/t5/Themes/Anozided-ExtremeMix-Moviesheet-s-Hub-Theme/td-p/125052
what i did was to create a dummy file with notepad. (just create a blank file with notepad and rename to required name and file extension)
Easy A 2010.mkv_sheet.mkv
and generate a thumbnail (with thumbgen if possible) for that file :
Easy A 2010.mkv_sheet.jpg
Easy A 2010.mkv --(The Actual movie)
Easy A 2010.jpg --The movie’s cover box thumbnail…
Easy A 2010.xml --meta data
create a folder for example EasyA movie and place all files in it i.e:
Easy A 2010.mkv --(The Actual movie)
Easy A 2010.jpg ----The movie’s cover box thumbnail…
Easy A 2010.xml -meta data
Easy A 2010.mkv_sheet.mkv --The dummy file
Easy A 2010.mkv_sheet.jpg --The MovieSheet
Easy A 2010.mkv_sheet.xml --Meta data … just make a copy of your movie’s metadata and rename as the dummy file name
( Note: the meta data for the moviesheet is not required, but you could use it as a backup)
you could also create a thumbnail for that folder…
rename to folder.jpg (folder thumbnail)
In the Menu goto Setup----> Video Settings -----> Video Playback Sequence
Change to Repeat All
This will bounce it from the dummy file to the main movie…
Means you can press play(don’t press on OK) on the moviesheet and the movie starts playing !!!
