Can I change the screensaver image on the WD TV Live Hub?


#1

Tired of watching the WD logo.  Can’t seem to find a way to do it.

It’s in the SETUP screens, I think it’s under APPEARANCE, SYSTEM or OPERATION.

Looks like WD made an article on this awhile back…

EDIT: Nevermind- thats to disable the screensaver :slight_smile: - There is a way to do it… I think it’s in the same menu’s as the disable option.

You can select your own folder or random photos on your hub. You need to have the media library turned on.

Yea, I just found that but that gives full screen “slides.”  I’m just trying to change the little bouncing image to a different bouncing image.  :slight_smile:

Go Download the legacy them onto your HUB via the GUI, then modify the PNG image to whatever you want.

Huh?   Sorry, I need a translation on that!   I have no idea what you wrote. :slight_smile:

First, go read this thread:

http://community.wdc.com/t5/WD-TV-Live-Hub/Can-I-supress-Subtitles-and-Audio-dialog-when-playing-movies/m-p/74518#U74518

which describes the process for editing ANY portion of the theme.

Part of the theme includes the little WD logo used for the screensaver.

All you need to do is modify the graphic files that are part of the Legacy theme; particularly the graphic of the WD Logo.

Gotcha!  Thanks.  That should do it.

I have a further question regarding the screensaver feature:

I am using PlayBack (by Yazsoft) to create a media server on my iMac. This allows me to see all my iPhoto Albums and Events on the Live Hub. Nice. 

However, I would also like to be able to use an Album or Event or even my whole iPhoto library for the screensaver. I can’t seem to figure out a way to do this.

Any help much appreciated.
