My wall mode layout


#1

Having come from a WD Live and was missing the wall sheet mode, so I thought I’d set about making something similar today.

1st picture is how I started, but that had some bugs to have moved to the 2nd image, which Im more than happy with

and my 2nd attempt to get it scrolling smoothly

Very Nice !!

Which XML are you using to base this on ? Gallery I guess, since this is the only XML that handles meta-data? Or are you creating different thumbs with description for each file?


#3

Thanks,

Im editing rv_gallery_browse_page ,  its taken me a while , but I’ve pretty much got what I wanted now, lots of covers and some meta data :slight_smile:

Would be nice to add some fan art, but that looks a bit tricky


#4

I might try something similar on my Ohagi-theme, inspired by this - if that’s fine by you? I really like the clean-nes’ of that wall-mode. If I were you, I’d go all the way and loose the weather and time icons as well :slight_smile:

Good luck, looking forward to it !


#5

yeah, no probs.

I like having the clock, reminds me to stop watching and go to bed  :wink:

If I could get the film wallpaper to resize and fit about the movie name, I would loose the clock to make space.


#6

thats awsome how the heck do u do that,


#7

hopefully heres a copy of the file so far, which may get you started if anyones thinking of something similar :smiley:

I’ve done a similar (almost identical) setup now. Looks good, but very buggy unfortunately. I’ve set mine up, so that you can scroll up/down to go up-down the wall. Going down is pretty smooth, but going up is slow and gets really buggy. How have you set yours up regarding navigation?

heres what I’ve done :

<listbox valkey=“browselist” move=“row” cols=“6” rows=“4” lbmask=“LR” loop_scroll=“6” _trigger=“10” turbo_multi=“10” autoenter=“1” fixed_scrolling_col=“6” hormove=“0” />

Mines works nice and smooth, I’ve included the file above you post.

Thanks - I’ve tried your XML out now. Again - nice work - looks great!

I do, however, have the same issue with your version. Have you actually tried it out in a folder where you have more than 24 files i.e. more than one page…?


#11

I’ve not got many that have more that 24, the most I have is 30, so the 2nd page doesn’t have a lot on it.

I will add some more files and try it out this week.


#12

this look nice :]

for me, it seems that it is the actual “page-change” that causes bugs, so a folder of 30 files should reveal the issue if you jump back and forth on the pages…


#14

I have notice that if your on the 1st row, you can move the cursor off the top of the screen. I guess its trying to hover over the 4 coloured buttons, that aren’t there anymore.


#15

what part of the xml provides the text for the description of the move that to the left, i cannot find it anywhere, thank u, will this work for the rv_video_browse_page as far as the text wise or is that gallery only


#16

BesT results so  far !!!

Great work man!!

mine’s wall mode is too messy. lol

I Guess it works find with normal hub metadata.

Once wd fix the bug in the latest firmware (folder metadata not working) . This could work fine with any custom wall templates!

To fix this in “rv_gallery_browse_page.xml” delete the line " ", this will keep it from trying to find the Dashboard, Filter/Sort, etc. buttons.


#18

Thanks, will give a go tonight.

I’ve got a couple more tweaks I want to try anyway. Like adding a white line around each thumbnail to make then stand out a little.

Look for the variable @@browse_text , that one and the 3 that look after the metadata.

sk1dmark, I don’t want to be a mood killer here - especilly b/c I think this wall-mode looks great. But there are some major-bugs in this - not caused by your XML, but simply because it seems the HUB cannot handle this setup. I’ve been messing around with it for some time now, trying to fix it - no luck. I’m not saying it cannot be done - just that the Lord and apparently the WD HUB works in mysterious ways sometimes :) 

Before getting to fixated around all the little graphical details, I would advice you to try and get the basic working 100%. I’m saying this because it might not even be possible and you’d have to discard the whole thing, having spent hours and hours on it. (believe me, done this several times now :slight_smile:

I would be happy to help if possible and test stuff out - I would really like to see this setup working!!
