No matter what I do, I cannot get album thumbnails to work on the Music / Album page. If I select an album, the thumbnails show correctly on each track. I expected this to work from the firmware 1.01.11 release notes.
All music is stored on usb attached devices formated either FAT32 or HFS. WD TV Live firmware 1.04.17_V. Music is arranged in a pretty standard folder structure: Artist / Album. I have tried deleting the .wd_tv folder and turning the power off to the unit multiple times.
I have flac files with embedded cover art (jpg). The thumbnails for the individual tracks are shown correctly. When I add a folder.jpg to each album folder I can also see album thumbnails when navigating to Music / Folders / USB1 / Artist. Thumbnails don’t work navigating to Music / Album.
I have mp3 files that are converted from the flac files via Max ( http://sbooth.org/Max/)..) The album art shows correctly in iTunes but not at all on the WD TV Live. I guess the wrong ID3 tag is being used. If I convert the tags to ID3 v2 (using id3v2) and add the picture with ID3 Editor, thumbnails show for the individual tracks. If I add a folder.jpg in the album folder, I can also see album thumbnails when navigating to Music / Folders / USB1 / Artist. Thumbnails don’t work navigating to Music / Album.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
