I don’t know if this has been covered yet, but I thought I would post this for those that need it.
This is how to rename your metadata.
First, from you PC click on you WDTV Live Hub, then click on the Metadata folder. Then open the Movies folder. From there find the metadata for the movie that you want to change the name of. Once you’ve found your metadata, rename both the .jpg file & the .xml (make sure that you use “%20” for spaces & “%3a” for “:”). Now open the .xml file and change the name.
For an example, using “Pirates of the Caribbean”, the jpg & xml will be:
(Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl)
(Pirates of the Caribbean 1: The Curse of the Black Pearl)
Now, once that is done, you will have find the .xml named “movie” and open it. Now find your movie (if you are using Windows Notepad you can go to Edit/Find and type in the first word in the title to find it), then change the name to match the name that you change the jpg & xml too.
For an example, the line:
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearlfile:///tmp/media/usb/Local/WDTVLiveHub/Movies/Adventure/PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN - The Curse of the Black Pearl.mkv
will now be:
Pirates of the Caribbean 1: The Curse of the Black Pearlfile:///tmp/media/usb/Local/WDTVLiveHub/Movies/Adventure/PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN - The Curse of the Black Pearl.mkv
Just make sure that all your names match, if all the names don’t match you may not see your metadata or coverart.
Once all that is done, then go to the HUB, select “Setup / System / Media Library”, then select “Clear Media Library”.
After the Media Library finishes rebuilding you should (if you renamed everything correctly) see the new name of your file.
Anyway, that’s the down & dirty of it. Hope it helps someone.
EDIT: Clearing the media library does NOT delete the metadata for the movies that you already have. I only clears the data in the flash memory, once the library has been recompiled the metadata for all the movies that you have already gotten will reappear.
