I have recently purchased the WD TV Live Hub, and so far I am very happy. I have solved many problems that I have run in to in the last few days. But one problem I can’t seem to resolve. I created three folders “Movies”, “Documentaries”, and “TV Shows”. Originally Movies and Documentaries and movie.avi and movie.jpg files directly in those directories, so the thumbnails for the folders were one of the movies. I then found a jpg that I want to use as the thumbnail for those folders. So I placed into each folder an named it folder.jpg, but it is still showing the thumbnail for one of the movies.
I tried turning off the WDTV and deleting the .wd_tv/thumbs folder but when I power the unit back on the thumbnail is the same movie thumbnail taht it was before. I also tried removing all files from the folder expect the fodler.jpg and one movie.avi and movie.jpg (it was a movie other then the one that was producing the thumbnail) and it still showed the same thumbnail even though the movie was no longer in the folder. I renamed the folders to MoviesX and DocumentariesX and this work! But when I named the files back it returned it to the old thumbnail of the movie (this movie has still not been placed back in the folder yet).
Also, the TV Show folder I created had all of the videos stored in subfolders so a thumbnail was never generated until I placed the folder.jpg into it, so this one is not giving me any issues.
Any suggestions on how I can keep the original folder names and get the thumbnails to pull from folder.jpg?
