I’ve been reading this and other boards to help me understand the whole moviesheet’s feature on my new WDTV SMP (unfortunately it now seems to me, the ‘new’ part, is a bit of a negative, with not being able to add custom FW to this version…but at least I’ve eventually joined the party!)
I’ve had a search about how’s best to switch between the various themes around, that the clever, talented & very helpful people such as Joey, Lester etc have developed for the WDTV.
Can someone in-the-know just confirm or advise a few points here please?
I’ve tried 2 themes so far; Mojo & Darklight. I used the thumbgen templates provided for each theme to scrape movie info for a couple of genre folders I have.
In ‘folder 1’ I used the mojo template to garner all the info with TG and it looks great in mojo. If I now want to view the same folder in Darklight, what is the best/quickest way to re-garner that info so it looks great in that too? (Do I have to move all of the background, cover jpegs & xml files out of that folder (and save to somewhere in-case I want to return to that theme)?
I *think* I have to load the Darklight template in TG, and then re-run TG…but alter the source from My Prefered Collector to ‘metadata info - from tgmd file’ in the options…is this correct?
Also when I was getting the movie info, some of the movie descriptions would either be too brief (one or two lines…) or a mini ‘War & Peace’…and I would find myself editing these down (or up) to a decent amount of info. If I tell TG to get the info from the tgmd file, will it retain the edits I did, or will I have to re-edit the ones I don’t like again?
Sorry for the questions that probable sound ‘daft’ to you…but I’m just a poor, thick, nOOb…
