My WDTV Live got delivered yesterday from amazon.co.uk and I’m pretty sure it’s generation 3.
I’ve tested a few mkv files playing off external hard drive. I used wdtv hubgen to give the cover art, thumbs and movie info. Could someone describe to me in very simple terms (as I’m a simple guy) how to get the look of the first moviesheets on this page http://community.wd.com/t5/WD-TV-Live-Hub-Themes/Moviesheet-Theme-List/td-p/214008
In simple terms - search the forum (stacks of info)
Try an author’s moviesheet theme and follow their guides and if you get into trouble post help in the authors thread for assistance.
I think it’s a case of too much information out there.
I’ve spent all evening setting up one moviesheet for Batman Begins to test it and downloaded AEonish Hub FR Revision 2 to try and set it up. I am stuck where I am looking for the .wd_tv hidden folder (I have chosen to see hidden files from My Computer). It says to map it to the internal HDD of the WDTV Live Hub. Now, I only have the WDTV Live with an external 1TB HDD attached.
Could you explain to me how to get the theme to show up? I tried creating a folder .wd_tv and inside that a folder called theme but it didn’t work.
I believe my moviesheets are fine but I just need the theme to install.
ok…first things first…what theme are you using?
in a nut shell
Hub uses .wd_tv folder
Live SMP theme gets uploaded to the device
then you have 2 ways to display moviesheets
via xml’s this is officially supported
via Linksheets this works well with the hub, but smp needs custom firmware to make this really a viable option
as for creating and setting up moviesheets
you have 2 options
let the smp do it for you - media library, get content info
use thumbgen on your pc to do it yourself
I suggest you start with reading the manual to get xml’s working, then you can venture out to other options if you like
Sorry for the confusion. I only realised when I went into settings > about that I had the SMP not the hub. In my opinion it’s all very confusing!
I managed to produce a moviesheet for dark light theme last night, but going to have a play around with different themes tonight.
Thanks for the help.
Sorry, quick question - will the AEonish theme work on SMP if I have the latest firmware?
