since a few weeks I am owner of a WDTV Live SMP (Gen.3) which is my first SMP ever. After setting up everything I was a little disappointed of the way partitions and folders show up when browsing through my videos and the music and photos are not as well usable as I thought.
So I started to play around with some themes (thanx to all the contributers, you do a very good job!) and was thrilled what is possible. But (there is always a but…) some of the graphics didn’t match my taste and I started to change some images in the theme I liked most.
But now I want to understand a little more of the things I am doing and trying to build my own theme step by step. I read that it is possible to change single files and only the meta.xml must be contained in the archive. Changing the BG-RV.jpg of the moochi theme wasn’t hard, but with my next steps I crashed the SMP (it was hung up in boot cycle and I had to do a hard factory reset). That took me to a little bit more precaution and I tried to use the Legacy theme. But that theme did the exact same thing and I saw a HUB image, so I think I downloaded the wrong file. Another reset was necessary and I am a bit frustrated because I have no clue how and where to start over. I coulnd’t end up in permanently restting the SMP because it is in use by my familiy and I am glad that the theme experiments are tolerated so far.
Can anyone guide me to a good starting point, perhaps with a link to a theme which could easily be modified and does not crash the SMP? Thanx in advance to all for your help!
