This is a ‘Moviesheet’ based Theme and has been developed for the WDTV Live Hub and NOT the WD TV Live Streaming Media Player (SMP).
The Theme has been designed to run using Firmware version 2.07.17 and will not be updated to run on any current Firmware until PNG/JPG issue is resolved by WD developers. Sorry.
My inspiration for this theme undoubtably comes from Joey Smyth’s outstanding Theme work and various XBMC skins, with a little eclectic design input from yours truly.
I would like to thank the early pioneers of theming such as PsychoTHC, Juliojs, ExtremeDigital, Firetix to name but a few and also my contemporaries- Joey Smyth and Tinwarble for their patience and invaluable help along the way! Thank you very much.
ETA- Spring(ish) 2012.
Please also NOTE- This is WIP and more info and screenshots will follow in due course.
Obsolete images removed.
Apologies for not being able to upload new screenshot images as intended. Will do asap.
After much deliberation I have decided to redesign Front Row so that they will work with Joey Smyths’ Aeonish hub moviesheet templates.
The down side of this means that we won’t be able to have the ‘media flag’ info displayed…(my original moviesheet design was causing to many problems with pan view within xml code)…
… However the UP side of this means that everyone currently using the excellent Aeonish Hub theme and moviesheets will also be able to use them in Front Row…making both themes compatiable and interchangeable.
So in summary and I do think that this will be better for all end users and perhaps future themers may adopt such an approach!
I want to say a MASSIVE thanks to Joey Smyth for his personal permission and endorsement for me to use his moviesheet template for my development of Front Row. Thanks JS!
NOTE- All Joey’s movie, TV, music and folder TG templates will work with Front Row, however I am currently modding TV template to improve for FR [Front Row].
Oh and a BIG THANK YOU for everyones comments and feedback!
Revised Gallery View… NB…View still needs tweaking slightly
I realise that manually editing the movie info xml may not be everyone’s ‘cup of tea’ but for me personally I feel it is well worth the effort as it gives an extra dimension to the somewhat limited OSD.
For people who don’t fancy editing the xml I will be providing an alternative Theme as part of the ‘Release Package’. Basically the info at the bottom will be omitted with some minor mod to display media flag info etc.
