I recently bought this from Amazon : http://www.amazon.com/Live-Media-Pla…/dp/B005KOZNBW
Is this what’s referred to SMP?
I love the device but would like a better menu system. I am a bit confused / overwhelmed by all the custom firmware options though. DeVicious’ Simplicity seems to be the favorite but then I read the disclaimers about how the SMP device is not supported and I get scared off.
I’ve spent hours and hours reading community forum pages on the various WD sites and I think I’m going blind - can anyone help simplify this for me?
Can we define some terms?
Hub vs SMP
firmware vs theme
linksheet vs backdrop
I’m getting quite lost in the lingo.
Can we also talk about what the overall process of updating and setting up your movies in the right way?
I think I’ve watched enough youtube videos to get the gist of the mechanicals but I’m not sure I understand from a high level what we’re doing - it seems like there is a firmware layer and an interface layer and both have to be changed?
I have a 4TB WD MyCloud that I use to serve all my movies - how should they be organized? they’re all just sitting one common folder right now. How can I control what “movie poster” shows up when I select that movie? And then how can I control what shows up on the “movie detail” screens that I’ve seen? It seems like there are ways to let that stuff just auto generate (thumbgen?) but what if I don’t like what it comes up with?
I’m really just after a movie sheet interface (that I can control what images show up) and then a nice detail view with background image (again, with image that I control). I wouldn’t mind a program’s assistance in populating all the movie posters and background images but if I want to go with something else then I want the ability to change it.
