do you guys know how and what METADATA are downloaded from the web ? I just want to have confirmation about what I found out so far.
I have downloaded metadata and ended up with 1 x XML file, 1 x backdrop directory and 1 x metathumb file per movie
When I deleted the backdrop (as I do not want them to show up) they started to download again as there are obviously instructions in the XML file
When I deleted the respective lines I was there and finally only the metadata showed up and the thumbnail
But now two questions:
In the XML file, there are paths mentioned where the WD Box should download the backdrop files. Do you know if the Box is still downloading them every time, although they are already on the drive in the backdrop folder ?
If the backdrop instructions are deleted in the XML file and the I have set the METADATA Download to “manual” -> are there any things still downloaded at all ?
Oh yeah - there’s one additional question (but this is optional) -> in the standard setup there is a black backdrop when you are browsing through the video files (where the backdrops are coming if they are downbloaded) -> As I don’t use them, there is now this black backdrop and I would prefer to have just the standard background image which looks better to me ?
Is there a chance to modify the standard theme to show the standard background image also when browsing the movies ?
Many thanks for your responses, Max
