Hi, I am new to WD TV Media Player (WDBYMN0000NBK-VESN) but found quickly that the information displayed each time a button is pressed is a little annoying. (Ex: when trying to read text on screen using “pause”+“OK”+“pause”+“pause”+“OK”+“pause”+“OK”…)
I found this post with the “NoVideoOverlays.zip” and decided to try it. Unfortunately, it is not working on my WD TV Media Player. The theme is obviously different, but it does not remove anything when I press “pause” (or any other button).
Is this “NoVideoOverlays.zip” supposed to work on a WD TV Media Player ?
Any suggestions or alternate solution would be appreciated.
Most likely you did’nt follow the instructions and skipped the last step …
To install the theme, download the zip file to your PC, open your web browser (I don’t recommend using IE8 or 9, there have been issues),
then type your SMP’s IP address to open the Web UI.
Step1: Type in your password (the default is “admin”), click on the box next to “I accept”
Step2: click on LOGIN, then click on “Appearance”, then click on
“Browse” and navigate to where you saved the “NoVideoOverlays.zip” file,
then click on “Open”.
Step3: Click on “Submit”, then once the Web UI finishes uploading the theme,
on your WDTV press “Setup” on your remote, select “Appearance”, then
select “User Interface Themes”, select “NoVideoOverlays” then when
prompted select Apply theme
Hi - glad to see current posts on the NoVideoOverlays.zip theme. It works as expected for playing videos, however when viewing photo galleries, there is still the same box which pops up every time one presses play or pause (for automated slideshow).
Could you provide a photo_run.xml sample that can be added to this zip-file explaining the elements as for video_run.xml? This would be an enormous help and would save having to manually press forward or back to view photos. Thanks in advance.
