I just replaced a Roku with the WD Live TV (streaming,not hub), and I love it. I have already messed around with a couple of themes (and even thumbgen) and have it pulling content from a network share. I am very impressed with how easy that all was to set up.
There are two main questions I have right now:
1. When I set the WDTV to look for content on a network share, can I select individually shared folders? Currently, it only allows me to select the “root” shared device, and every shared folder shows up. I have shared folders with documents and other things that the WDTV doesn’t need to see, but I can’t figure out how to hide them. Would it involve setting the permissions on the folders to not allow the WDTV to see them? (I’d try it now, but I’m not at home)
2. Themes. Awesome. I love the flexibility this device has. My question here is related to movie sheets. I have a mixture of TV shows and movies, and I’d like the TV “moviesheets” to show the series information, etc. I downloaded a massive theme pack that has a bunch of TV moviesheets, but when I select them in ThumbGen, the themes I am using pull info from the XML files and the moviesheet is garbled with the jpg that has the series info and the dynamic text pulled from the XML file. My question is is there a theme like MOJO that has a unique movie sheet template for TV shows or is there a theme that does not pull information from an XML file? (or is there a way to “turn off” pulling information from the XML file?) OK so that was more than one question.
Alternatively, are there any tutorials for modifying an existing movie sheet template (like MOJOs) to handle TV shows? I read his tutorial, and can get the right plot information in the overview OK, but I’d really like it to display information like other TV moviesheet templates provide.
Thanks! You guys have helped me a ton already!
