Calm down, (I’m trying to HELP)
let’s clear a few things up…
Which device do you own ?
A. WDTV Live Hub (which is not referred to as a 3rd Gen Device it’s 2nd Gen, basically a Live Plus with a HDD) and is the Forum you’re posting In
To Install a Theme Manually on the WDTV Live Hub
1. Download a Theme (See the WDTV Live Hub Themes Forum … or SMP forum for Themes which will also work on the Hub)
2. Extract the zip file contents
3. Transfer the Theme folder to the WDTV Live Hub (via Network) and place into the theme folder eg.
4. Goto Setup > Appearance > User Interface Themes
5. Select the Theme and Apply
B. WDTV Live SMP (which is referred to as a 3rd Gen Device)
To install a Theme Manually on the SMP … it’s a different procedure as described previously
To install the theme, download the zip file to your PC, open your web browser (I don’t recommend using IE 8 or 9, there have been issues), then type your SMP’s IP address to open the Web UI. Type in your password (the default is “admin”), click on the box next to “I accept” and then click on LOGIN, then click on “Appearance”, then click on “Browse” and navigate to where you saved the “AlaskaDARK_V1.2.zip” file, then click on “Open”.
Click on “Submit”, then once the Web UI finishes uploading the theme, on you SMP press “Setup” on your remote, select “Appearance”, then select “User Interface Themes”,
(make sure you press the RED(B) Content Source Button and select “Local”)
select “AlaskaDARK_V1.2” then when prompted select “Apply theme”.
In reference to the WDTV Live SMP Manual Theme Install Procedure and your question…
“WHY did you do it so hard to install manually a theme to the device?”
Don’t blame me, that’s how Western Digital decided to implement the manual installing of Themes onto the SMP
