Flixster Free Mod

People were complaining about the newest firmware … List View *too short* due to the fact space was allocated for Flixster / Rotten Tomatoes ratings.

I just simply used the original Mochi video xml’s (which didn’t feature Flixter/RT rating) and replaced all of them.

This is for both the WD TV Media Player & WD TV Live Streaming (SMP)

Mochi (Original Interface)


Grid (New Interface)


How to install / upload a theme.

To install the theme, download the zip file to your PC, open your web browser (I don’t recommend using IE8 or 9, there have been issues), then type your WDTV’s IP address to open the Web UI.   Type in your password (the default is “admin”), click on the box next to “I accept” and then click on LOGIN, then click on “Appearance”, then click on “Browse” and navigate to where you saved the “FlixsterFreeMochi.zip” file, then click on “Open”.

Click on “Submit”, then once the Web UI finishes uploading the theme, on your WDTV press “Setup” on your remote, select “Appearance”, then select “User Interface Themes”, select “FlixsterFreeMochi” then when prompted select “Apply theme”.



Thank you for sharing this. 

Thanks so much! I was about to roll back my firmware, but I found this and it worked! :slight_smile:

you’re welcome :smiley:

Many thanks for this themes resource and procedure, @ Joey.


Excellent fix, much appreciated.

Only need to find a solution now for the ‘Preview View’ page. On that page I want to remove the stars/ratings stuff and the actual preview of the file. I just want 1 vertical column as wide as possible so you can quickly see as much of the title of the show as possible with no fanart / folder pic’s or preview window.

I haven’t edited an xml file myself but I’ve had a look at the ones you posted for this fix and I might be able to figure it out trial and error fashion, unless someone can point me in the right direction.
