Title: OSD mod : simple (1.03.01) ***V3 FINAL
Post by: lilibabe on July 11, 2009, 10:02:06 PM
Final version 2009.01.24
- virtual keyboard redesigned (in fact, I reused at 99% the one of picto mod  ;))
- redesigned selection frame : now unselected thumbnails are darkened (not sure it's more clear to distinguish selected item !)
- one icon modified (settings>photos)
- default thumbnails (no artwork) modified
- 2 options : with or without reflection for thumbnails

Simple and unadorned : v3

To celebrate the new year, here is a revamped version of my mod.

It comes in 3 variants :

- Normal : 2x5 thumbnails (180x240 px) for videos, 2x4 thumbnails (240x240 px) for photos/music
- Small (nice for large TV) : 3x8 thumbnails (120x160 px) for videos, 3x6 thumbnails (160x160 px) for photos/music
- Big : 1x3 thumbnails (360x480 px) for videos, 1x2 thumbnails (480x480 px) for photos/music

Here are some pictures taken in the near darkness (sorry for the quality !) :

Download links

All wdtv.bin and osd.bin are available here : http://wdtv.free.fr/ (http://wdtv.free.fr/).
Note that v1 and v2 are still available.

PS : remember to put the file "wdtv.ver" if you use the file "wdtv.bin" !

As I don't use the alternative firmware, I can't offer you the choice of the size of thumbnails ; I don't want to create as many firmwares as there are requests ! Sorry !

But if you're using b-rad's fw for example, you can use my osd.bin and change the size...

Maybe one day, if someone offers a "simple" fw that allows the use of app.bin, i can offer different choices...

Thanks...but this seems really small. Is this for one of the custom firmwares?

EDIT: Oh nevermind...I guess it is the English wdtv.bin I want. Thanks anyway though.
Title: Re: OSD mod for you
Post by: lilibabe on July 12, 2009, 09:34:38 PM
How can these English .png files be added in to the firmware? The firmware looks great by the way. Thanks.

First, mount the wdtv.bin :

Code: [Select]
sudo mount wdtv.bin /somewhere/ -o loop,offset=32)
Then, replace the files for your language in "/osd/image/". After that, recreate the md5sum of files replaced and update the file md5sum.txt in /osd directory.

Finally :

Code: [Select]
mkcramfs /somewhere/ wdtv.cramfs
md5sum wdtv.cramfs | dd bs=32 count=1 > wdtv.md5
cat wdtv.md5 wdtv.cramfs > wdtv.bin

That's all !

Maybe I can think of a "internationalized" version of the firmware, ie replacing "text icons" in home menu with other icons, but i like the fw like that, even if it's a bit of work to adapt to each language...

For those who prefer icons instead of text labels, maybe they could be replaced by something like that :

i like labels but icons are also very good. i just hope lilibabe will be so kind to create icons for upcomming wdtvext plugins so they all look as one theme.

btw: i;ve made a simple background script which let u swap language specific images same time u change lang in settings menu. it should work with orginal fw without probs, so multilang version can be easily done.

Ok, I will try to follow changes and create icons accordingly... What icons are needed ? Extras, reboot and ?

Cool, where is your script ?

Title: Re: OSD mod for you
Post by: rezmus on July 13, 2009, 10:41:16 PM
will post the script after work. for now would be nice to have an icon describing best "extras" menu, but soon when wdtvext will be more powerfull many plugins will appear so i hope u will follow up with icons ;)
Title: Re: OSD mod for you
Post by: lilibabe on July 13, 2009, 11:45:55 PM
Ok, I will do my best !  ;)

For now, I'm not very happy with my new icons for the main menu : white on black isn't very nice, I will try to find a better solution...

What about a kind of plugin icon for wdtvext ? (i mean a kind of outlet)
Title: Re: OSD mod for you
Post by: rezmus on July 14, 2009, 12:37:38 AM
can be. also adobe has nice icon ilustrating extension.

Really nice skin. Thank you!

But how to

replace the files for your language in "/osd/image/"
? I can't replace or remove files in mounted bin

Code: [Select]
# mount
...
/storage/tmp/wdtv.bin on /storage/tmp/wd type cramfs (rw,loop=/dev/loop1,offset=32)
# cd /storage/tmp/wd/osd/image/
# rm home_date_sub_icon_n.png
rm: remove regular file `home_date_sub_icon_n.png'? y
rm: cannot remove `home_date_sub_icon_n.png': Read-only file system

Also, about,
Quote
and update the file md5sum.txt in /osd directory.
I don't see md5sum.txt in osd directory
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned
Post by: lilibabe on July 14, 2009, 06:48:35 AM
@BelSky : perhaps you should consider doing this on linux and not under the wdtv (mounting .bin and changing graphics).

Sorry, the md5sum.txt is in the directory where you mounted the wdtv.bin file, not in /osd !
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned
Post by: Frosty_CRO on July 14, 2009, 10:05:02 AM
ext3-boot tested!

Well, if you don't want to mount the osd.bin every time... Just extract everything from this pack and upload the contents of the lilibabe folder to your WDTV /osd folder, overwriting all the files there.
Works like a charm.

Thanks lilibabe, this is the best osd pack available. Just what I was looking for, fits my WDTV perfectly!

I also prefer 2x6 thumbnails but I made this version in response to a request...

In fact, I don't see what to change ! I'm waiting for the new official fw to modify my osd (file manager,etc.)

lilibabe, about a previous discussion :

I think it was less ambiguous than previous one.
What do you think about it ?

(http://www.bourmad.com/wd_tv/OSD/lilibabe_avsettings.jpg)

Maybe you can move the key if you it at the same position as other settings icons.

New edition available for my OSD mod : as requested, bigger thumbnails in video mode (twice the others), 1 row, 3 cols.

Thank you very much. Your’s OSDMod is fine! But thumbs 324x432 px looks like crap on my plasma TV because of jpeg compression artifacts.

Please lilibabe, do continue with your project. I came on here tonight almost expecting to see another upload from you. I am awaiting this new osd from you. That new look you have in your screenshot looks very nice! I want to make it my defaul osd for my media player. PLEASE continue!

A note to all the other modders out there, the service you guys do for us is invaluable! I no longer check the forum at avsforum for info on the media player. THIS is the place to be! And that's because of the few who are investing their time to give us something fresh and new. Western Digital should be appreciative too.
Keep up the great work!

it won;t help coz osd automaticly scale thumbs to 120 x 180 regardles of image item size definied in xml. solution i know might be script that symlinks back your folder.jpg files in /tmp/cache directory (either recursive on drive mount or using event-osd on directory enter). i had something like this long time ago, but i can;t find it anymore (old tests lowres (http://pl.wiki.wdtv.org/img/thumbs_lowres.jpg) and hires (http://pl.wiki.wdtv.org/img/thumbs_hires.jpg)).

So, with your encouragement, I decided to get into the design of a second mod...

For now, I have already almost completed the home menu.

I have good and bad news :

- the good : this mod will used much less memory than the other (each icon in the main menu is less than 1Ko, because it's just composed of dots), navigation seems to be faster

- the bad : it looks maybe too grey, the background (diagonal lines) appears uniform, icons are too small and too dark (but there's the text label above with the description), it's harder to design than my previous skin (so be patient !). Depending on your tv, the "lcd" dots aren't well upscaled (tested on a hd ready tv).

Does anyone is interested in testing the very beginning and tell me what he thinks ? (should I continue or not ?)

It's just to test the main menu (icons, colors), the rest is not usable as is.

New update (see p.1)

Including translation pack (english, german, italian, portuguese, spanish, turkish and psd sources) for calendar icon, music default folder/thumbnail, video default folder/thumbnail and photos default folder.

They are the png files to rename and to "inject" into the wdtv.bin or osd.bin, depending on what you use.

Next time, i will provide the translations for the main menu icons (video, music, photos, settings).

I read last posts but I don't understand were these roots are or how injetc in osd.bin (like arabic for me! ;D ).

Ok, just the time for me to prepare everything, I will make available versions of files wdtv.bin and osd.bin for languages listed above.

But as it will do a lot of different files (to prepare and host), I will only do it for the 2x6 thumbnails version of my mod. People using the version with large thumbnails will have to manually edit the .bin file (that is to say modifying the 2-3 files concerned).

I hope no one is Korean or Russian here !  ;)

Google will be my friend for translation ! There's just a problem with 'fotoğraf'... there's no 'ğ' in the font i'm using.

Turkish : fotograflar = fotograf.
German : einstellungen = einstell.
Italian : impostazioni = impostaz.

Is is ok ?

And another question for the Spanish and Portuguese : in the translation file of the wdtv, 'settings' is translated by 'config.' ; is it ok ?

PS : I can enlarge the area for the icon but I have already done it and I don't want to end up with too large images...

I think these osd mods will come out within 2 days.

As I said earlier, I will only release the "normal" version with 2x6 thumbnails in video browser.

If you want to use the mod with 1x3 thumbnails, you'll have to :

- modify the 2-3 specific files to this display

or

- use the actual wdtv.bin or osd.bin already released (in french... but rezmus will provide a script which I have no new)

Post by: videomilk on July 19, 2009, 07:39:40 PM
ext3-boot tested!

Well, if you don't want to mount the osd.bin every time... Just extract everything from this pack and upload the contents of the lilibabe folder to your WDTV /osd folder, overwriting all the files there.
Works like a charm.

Thanks lilibabe, this is the best osd pack available. Just what I was looking for, fits my WDTV perfectly!

Can you post the extracted files.  I have a mac and can't unpack the wdtv.bin.   I'm using zoranders firmware and want to keep the networking and apple trailers but use this osd.   Thanks

It is !

I only said "Opções" (Options) because it would fit the same size as "Config."...

I guessed that they shortened the size of the word "Configurações" because of layout problems...

If it fits your layout nicely, then "Configurações" it is ! :)

Well, I encountered problems with my text labels.

The original icons were 155 pixels wide and it worked. Now that I enlarged to 200 pixels, text is cut off... (yet I have modified the data in the file 'home.xml' but I think it is a limitation of wdtv... I will see what i could do).

Otherwise, I will have to content myself with the size of 155 pixels and shorten some long words...

Because of the proliferation of custom firmwares (languages, big thumbnails, etc.), I'd like to provide users the possibility to create their own .bin file according to their expectations... but I'm bad in linux !

Does anyone can create a script that performs the following tasks (assuming that I produce a basic wdtv.bin and other sources : languages files, etc.) :

- mounting the wdtv.bin file
- ask the user the language he wants to use (then the script replaced the corresponding files)
- ask the user the size of thumbnails he wants to use (then the script replaced the corresponding files)
- ask the user which version he wants to use (wdtv.bin or osd.bin)
- updating the md5sum.txt file (in case he chooses 'wdtv.bin' to the above question)
- creating wdtv.bin or osd.bin

I think it should be easy for someone who is familiar with linux...

you can manually correct the problem by editing the file 'basic_browse_thumb_video.xml' :

change...

Code: [Select]
<listbox valkey="browselist" autoenter="1" autoswitch="0" move="row" cols="6" rows="2" lbmask="HT" loop_scroll="1" turbo_trigger="10" turbo_multi="10" />

...and in the same file, numitems="12" should be numitems="3"
I haven't got shared folders. xml file is in wdtv right? I don't see it.

First of all, I just want to say I love your OSD.  It's exactly what I was looking for.

However, I did find one small mistake.

For the English version, the welcome screen still says "Chargement".  I think it's supposed to say "Loading".

trying to use the english version of the wdtv.bin but can't figure out how to update :(

I put the wdtv.bin on a usb stick but the wdtv reports it as empty, is there another file besides the .bin that i need

thanks



Sorry, I forgot to specify that the file 'wdtv.ver' should also be placed at the base of the usb key with the file wdtv.bin


Thanks again :)

Thanks for the real nice OSD mod: a vast improvement in legibility and design.

One query, though: I can't get a screensaver to work. There seems to be none by default and copying a suitable <screen_saver.png> into the root of the USB drive doesn't work either.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

In fact, in the original fw, there's no 'screensaver.jpg' and the file 'screensaver.xml' is empty. I think the wdtv uses the file 'welcome_logo.png'.

But french users reported me this problem, it must be linked to fw b-rad.

If you really want the screensaver (is it useful ?), put a file 'screensaver.png' within the folder 'osd/image' of the osd.bin file.

Big_thumbnails (Spanish/English) : navigation problem corrected ; links updated (see 1st post).

Translation problem (Loading/Chargement) : will update the different versions when there will be other changes.

Nobody can help me with the script I asked ? it will help me to simplify these updates...

Quote
Does anyone can create a script that performs the following tasks (assuming that I produce a basic wdtv.bin and other sources : languages files, etc.) :

- mounting the wdtv.bin file
- ask the user the language he wants to use (then the script replaced the corresponding files)
- ask the user the size of thumbnails he wants to use (then the script replaced the corresponding files)
- ask the user which version he wants to use (wdtv.bin or osd.bin)
- updating the md5sum.txt file (in case he chooses 'wdtv.bin' to the above question)
- creating wdtv.bin or osd.bin

I think it should be easy for someone who is familiar with linux...

Thank you for your great app lilibabe. I am using the Turkish version of your app and I want to report some mistakes / errors about it.

1- I am using the app.bin version of your app with WDLXTV 0.5.5 and there are no screensaver and background pictures on the screen. I see there are files in /osd/image directory but the WDTV doesn't use them. If I put the files in the boot drive then everything is normal.

2- I wonder why did you put your background picture as png file and keep the original background picture as jpg file.

3- In Turkish firmware it also says Chargement... in the welcome screen. It must be "Yükleniyor...".

4- I wanted to edit the welcome.xml file in your app.bin but I get Read-only file system error. How can I edit the files in the app.

5- These are the home screen of the Turkish app.bin

(http://85.25.73.168/computeus/IMG_0506.JPG)

As you can see there are errors with the active menu item. The are not correctly positioned.
Also in the screenshots in your first post the left side of the home screen is darker but not in my home screen.

6- It is "Müzik" not "Müsik". There is a spelling error in the active menu item png for the Music files.

These are the mistakes errors I found with the Turkish version of your app. I hope you will help me to correct these issues.

Thanks for your great app.

1. I think b-rad's fw allows external use of wallpaper and screensaver, that's probably why it doesn't use those supplied with the osd.bin

2. I choose the png format for these reasons : image occupying less space and looking better

3. Will be corrected in the next update

4. I think it's because of the file format of the osd.bin (cramfs, not read-write)

5. I thought I had solved the problem of positioning. I will see it... Have you installed the latest version ?
"Also in the screenshots in your first post the left side of the home screen is darker but not in my home screen" : I don't know what you mean ! Maybe it's because of the different background used (horizontal menu is a little bit transparent)... My osd mod is designed to be used as is, if you change graphics, i don't know what will be the result...

6. Translation error : will change it in the next update ; other translations are ok ?

1- So we have to use external images for the screensaver and background. This is the only way with WDLXTV. Right?

2- I asked it because I did not know that wdtv can use png files as background. And I thought that a wrong named file in the Turkish app.bin (welcome_background_bg.png instead of welcome_background_bg.jpg).

3- Thanks.

5- Yes I am using the latest version.

I was talking about this difference.

(http://85.25.73.168/computeus/orj.jpg)
(http://85.25.73.168/computeus/IMG_0503_2.jpg)

Is this difference caused by background image or there must be some transparent dark image that is missing in the Turkish app file.

6- As far as I check other translations are ok.

Thank you.

@phatoshwest :

1. I don't use WDLXTV so I can't answer precisely but I think I read that somewhere. But, if b-rad's fw is looking for a file named "welcome....JPG" it wouldn't find it because mine is "welcome....PNG". The "welcome....JPG" file in the osd.bin is just a black background I left in case the wdtv looking for that file and crash if it doesn't exist.

2. see 1.

5. Darker left side of the home screen = home_left.png if I remember well... So, if this file exists in your osd.bin, it must be displayed. Maybe it's a problem with your background that goes over... I will try with turkish wdtv.bin to see if it's ok.

1- Ok I will do it with external image files. No problem.
By the way I checked the home.xml in /osd folder and in your app. They are different. Something prevents home.xml to change or it reverts back in my WDTV. I think this causes the misposition and transparency errors.
5- I checked my /osd/image file and yes there is home_left.png. But it doesn't show on the menu. I have not modified any file because it is read-only.

-------------------
I will observe and find out whick other app is restoring the home.xml. I copied the home.xml file in your app to wdlxtv. I will see if it helps.
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned
Post by: lilibabe on July 22, 2009, 02:53:38 AM
What do you mean by "they are different" ? What's the difference ?

Home_left.png is surely displayed but below your background... don't know why, I think it's proper to b-rad's fw.

Someone who's using my osd mod and brad's fw could tell us if it's the same ?

Does b-rad's fw may use a PNG instead of a JPG for the background ? In WDLXTV, which file is responsible for seeking the background and the screensaver files ?
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned
Post by: phatoshwest on July 22, 2009, 03:00:19 AM
The home.xml files are different. Some other app must have preventing your app to change the home.xml. Or maybe after your app changes the home.xml file the other app revert home.xml back to original.

This is because the welcome..._bg.png and the home_left.png files are not displayed. Because they are not in the home.xml.

I copied the home.xml file of your app to wdlxtv firmware and rebooted but no difference. Now I will copy the home.xml file to LaurentG's app to see if it helps.

I used your app with ext3-boot but no success. It did not work. So I changed my firmware to WDLXTV just to use your app.
---------------------------------------
It seems that LaurentG's app prevents the use of your home.xml. I copied home.xml in your app to laurentG's app and now it seems that proper home.xml is working. But I cannot check the screen because I am at work now. I will check and report in the evening (6 hrs. later).

Probably LaurentG.app starts later than your app and it changes the home.xml file with the one it includes (which is the original file in the LaurentG.app.bin /osd folder). After I changed the LaurentG's home.xml file with the one in your app then it is ok now.

Ok, so it seems it's more a problem with LaurentG.app.bin rather than a problem with WDLXTV.

If you use my mod only with the b-rad's fw it must operate without problem.

Did you test with the cramfs or the ext3 .bin ?

I'm using LaurentG's app.bin. Can you share more details on how to make it work with lilibabe's app?  How do you copy the home.xml to bin file? ???

Lets start.

Go to the /tmp directory

Code: [Select]
cd /tmp
Create 2 folders. One for LaurentG.app.bin and the other is for lilibabe.osd.bin. The folder names does not matter.

Code: [Select]
mkdir appp1
mkdir appp2

Lets mount the LaurentG.app.bin to the appp1 and lilibabe.osd.bin to the appp2.

This is for WDLXTV
Code: [Select]
mount -o loop /boot/mnt/LaurentG.app.bin appp1/
mount -o loop /boot/mnt/lilibabe.osd.bin appp2/

This is for ext3-boot
Code: [Select]
mount -o loop /boot/LaurentG.app.bin appp1/
mount -o loop /boot/lilibabe.osd.bin appp2/

Lets copy the home.xml from lilibabe.osd.bin to LaurentG.app.bin

Code: [Select]
cp appp2/home.xml appp1/osd/home.xml
If you get no errors it means everything is ok. Now unmount the apps.

Code: [Select]
umount appp1/
umount appp2/

Lets remove the folders we created.

Code: [Select]
rmdir appp*
Reboot and welcome to the new world.

Code: [Select]
reboot

6. Translation error : will change it in the next update ; other translations are ok ?


Can you please replace the German WD TV language file with the updated German language file of WDLXTV 0.5.5?
Western Digital really screwed the original translation!

The extracted version of Brad's firmware is on elmar_weber's site:
http://wdtv.elmarweber.org/temp/1.02.10_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV-0.5.5.root.tar.gz


Thanks.

About the icons...
I personally think that the icons in the SETTINGS sub-menu look all the same  ;D
It's somehow hard to identify the audio-video/video/audio/photo icons by just looking at the icons because they all look so similar!  :D


Therefore I prefer BMD_Online's new audio-video icon and I also would like to see the photo-icon with a different motive in it.

I've redrawn Audio/Video Settings icon.
What do you think about it ?

(http://www.bourmad.com/wd_tv/OSD/lilibabe_home_avsettings_sub_icon_n.png)



BESIDES THAT, your OSDmod is beautiful, lilibabe!!!  :o
It feels and looks great!  :)

I hope you are going to modify the OSD menu of the XTREAMER next  ;D ;D
(The Xtreamer's OSD icons are all 16bit .BMP images)

@Monkeyface66 : I'll take into account the file for German language at a future update, I'm not change every time a version just for a detail  ;)

For the icons, maybe my view is better than yours and I see very well the differences !  ;)

You know, I can't please everyone... the best is that everyone changes the fw according to his taste. I don't know anything in linux and yet I managed to do things...

Future "improvments" that will appear in the next update :

- replacement of the German language file
- correction of the loading screen (Chargement...)

So, nothing special but if I forgot something thank you to telling me.

I also removed references to files in the osd directory (and his subdirectories) in the file "md5sum.txt". In this way it will be easier for you and for me to change some things... I tested it, it works 100%.

Now, I will anticipate the next update of wd and work on 2 new screens : the file manager and the new video browser mode.

I don't remember the exact message. But after I mounted the app1/ and app2/ folder, I checked on both. They were all empty folder. Plus I got error message trying to copy the home.xml too, since the file was simply not there. In addition, I could not find LaurantG.app.bin in /root/mnt/

Which firmware do you use?

Type
Code: [Select]
find /* | grep LaurentG.app.bin
or
Code: [Select]
find /* | grep lilibabe.osd.bin

You will get the path of the list of the files in the / folder (the whole file system) whose name is LaurentG.app.bin
So you will learn where the LaurentG.app.bin to mount.

is there anyway i can set the box or that, so when i turn it on instead the menu system coming up to pick what you like to do.

is there a way i can just turn the box on and it starts straight in the video folder instead since dont use pictures or music.

obviously if i was to press the home button it would return to the default menu of choosing music,vid,music,settings etc etc
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned
Post by: lilibabe on July 24, 2009, 12:14:12 AM
I don't know if it's possible. When you say "video folder" you mean the menu with video thumbnails ?

If so, maybe you can try to delete the file 'home.xml' and rename the file 'basic_thumb_video_browse.xml' (I didn't remember the exact name) in 'home.xml'. But I really don't know if it'll work... But if it works, then you will not be able to have the main menu !

Is it so difficult to hit 2 buttons to get to the video menu ?  ;)

Otherwise, you can certainly tweak you something with event-osd...

Well, I progressed a little bit on new future functions that would be available in the next update (I hope...) of the wdtv.

If you wanna see a preview, see my first post, "screenshots" section.

It's not all finished, but I took the advance to be more responsive on the next firmware  ;)

lilibabe you are surprising

File management is fantastic feature. I thought about it in my dreams :) Colud you think about possibility to copy all information from one USB device to another? It can be very useful for fotografers. Sometimes, when I travel I have to take laptop for storing all my photo's. But why can't I use WD TV with HDD for this task? All I need is copy all files from flash card to the HDD in folder with autogenerated name. Next I can format card in my Olympus SLR and shoot again. Dreams, dreams, dreams :)))

It's not I who will implement this feature, so I can not answer ! These are functions announced by wd for next update... Look here : http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=1170.0

Apparently, it'll be really a very simple file manager and not very practical... Wait and see !

1. original

number #2 because of the transparency!

If i remember well, the frame is the same used in slideshow player, and the progress bar too.

There is also a strange thing with this bar : for example, the size is 500px wide whereas in the xml file it's indicated 550px...

The only "missing" point imo is showing advanced movie info. Are there any plans to implement this?

I flashed with the 1.02.10 wdtv.ver version, now i don't know what to do  ???

No release for now as I certainly plan to change other graphics.

For test purpose (feedback appreciated), I will just release the french version.

Lets start.

Go to the /tmp directory

Code: [Select]
cd /tmp
Create 2 folders. One for LaurentG.app.bin and the other is for lilibabe.osd.bin. The folder names does not matter.

Code: [Select]
mkdir appp1
mkdir appp2

Lets mount the LaurentG.app.bin to the appp1 and lilibabe.osd.bin to the appp2.

This is for WDLXTV
Code: [Select]
mount -o loop /boot/mnt/LaurentG.app.bin appp1/
mount -o loop /boot/mnt/lilibabe.osd.bin appp2/

This is for ext3-boot
Code: [Select]
mount -o loop /boot/LaurentG.app.bin appp1/
mount -o loop /boot/lilibabe.osd.bin appp2/

Lets copy the home.xml from lilibabe.osd.bin to LaurentG.app.bin

Code: [Select]
cp appp2/home.xml appp1/osd/home.xml
If you get no errors it means everything is ok. Now unmount the apps.

Code: [Select]
umount appp1/
umount appp2/

Lets remove the folders we created.

Code: [Select]
rmdir appp*
Reboot and welcome to the new world.

This is for WDLXTV
Code: [Select]
mount -o loop /boot/mnt/LaurentG.app.bin appp1/
mount -o loop /boot/mnt/lilibabe.osd.bin appp2/

This is for ext3-boot
Code: [Select]
mount -o loop /boot/LaurentG.app.bin appp1/
mount -o loop /boot/lilibabe.osd.bin appp2/

Lets copy the home.xml from lilibabe.osd.bin to LaurentG.app.bin

Code: [Select]
cp appp2/home.xml appp1/osd/home.xml
If you get no errors it means everything is ok. Now unmount the apps.

Code: [Select]
umount appp1/
umount appp2/

Lets remove the folders we created.

Code: [Select]
rmdir appp*
Reboot and welcome to the new world.

Code: [Select]
reboot

thank you phatoshwest

But how do I get into the directory structure like the /tmp etc??

ooh nice, and you didn't do anything special?

Do you also have the Laurent osd.bin file in you root (event-osd.app.bin)?
Or did you remove that one?


I find it specifically strange because the normal items within the menu's are in English.
Only the top is strange (left part of the screen)

I just finished modifying the horizontal bar of video/pictures playback.

+ : semi-transparent black background, less obstrusive
- : less attractive (?)

No release for now as I certainly plan to change other graphics.

For test purpose (feedback appreciated), I will just release the french version.

I like this bar, top bar = progress bar is a great change...
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned
Post by: Monkeyface66 on July 27, 2009, 03:56:35 PM

what do you mean by "progress at the bottom" ?

I meant the whole bottom bar, but I'm afraid you're right.
The white text probably won't be readable good enough if you make it even more transparent.
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned
Post by: lilibabe on July 27, 2009, 10:34:29 PM
Since I've been editing my mod, it's becoming increasingly simple  ;)

Now, frame is even smaller and the progress bar is directly integrated in the border.

It may be lack of clarity on a light background but at least you can't say that it's not discrete !

Hi Lilibabe, could you check if your osd.bin (7 mb file) has some settings correct with languages?

My top menu (video, photo etc..) is in Turkish, only the sub-menu under it is 100% in English.
It would be great to have it all in English.

Is this a setting I can set somewhere?

Or can your compile an fully English version?

Sorry to ask you all this, but I really love your work and GUI.
And I am happy to be able to run it now.

Only the language was off.

So if the osd.bin is completely English, then I am very happy :)
Because now it somehow/somewhere decides to show the top menu in Turkish :(

Thank you already for all your effort

C'est ce que je pense aussi ! C'était pour tester, c'est visible mais très fin et si le fond est clair ça ne se voit pas très bien. Dommage car c'était l'idéal pour gagner de la place...

lilibabe

the one http://wdtv.free.fr/dl/lilibabe.osd.bin is the biggest one (7mb)
I am using that one, because I only want the osd.bin file.
I thought the biggest one should have all the necessary information in it to get your GUI.

Shouldn't I use that one when I use custom firmware.
Or do you think the 2mb version, which you refer to as English are also sufficient enough?
Do I get your pictures and your movie items then?

Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned
Post by: lilibabe on July 28, 2009, 03:20:38 AM
7mb -> ext3 file system
2mb -> cramfs file system

But these 2 .bin contain exactly the same files, so choose the English one !

I'm quite sure it would not display very well on a CRT.  Only thick lines and fonts display well. Thin ones just blur and flicker on a CRT.
I do like the look of what you've done though - I just need to buy an HDTV :)

cramfs is smaller because it's exactly the size of all the filles ; ext3 could be 7-100-100000mb, it's the user decision !

I like 'play pause...' elements.

Where is the progress bar  ???


An idea, but explained in french :
tu pourrais utiliser la partie basse de ton panel, celle ou tu as écrit "pause play stop..." comme barre de progression.
Au départ, le fond est simplement gris, et se remplit de bleu (ou autre) au fur et à mesure de l'avancement du film.
Ou, même idée mais en utilisant la partie du haut, où le titre du film est écrit.

Progress bar sur la capture = oubliée !

Tu lis dans mes pensées, c'est justement l'idée que j'ai retenu juste avant de repartir bosser ! J'ai justement mis une fine barre de progression en bas de la barre de lecture (c'est peut-être mieux en-dessous surtout sur des films avec les bandes noires en haut et en bas, comme ça ce sera plus lisible).

Je fignole tout ça ce soir et je posterai une nouvelle preview...

Pour les labels "play" etc., je vais oublier sinon certains vont râler à cause de la langue et je ne veux pas refaire la traduction en 50 langues ! J'avais pensé à de petits pictogrammes qui "s'allument" quand la fonction est activée mais ça va être trop petit. Donc je vais conserver mes bons vieux pictos du départ !

This is how it will (finally  ;)) look like... not very CRT compliant ! Maybe too transparent depending on the background, and blue text isn't always well readable.

- smaller (play bar and option menu)
- more transparent (maybe too)
- other modifications

Already done : video playback and photos playback (20px more height than video playback for the 2 lines)
Next : music playback

After that, i will post the link but just in French and English as i plan to modify other things...

Sorry, i can't ! in fact, i don't know if it's possible or at least i don't know how !

But you know, my osd is for replacing original wdtv.bin ; if you want to use a homemade background, you must use the lilibabe.osd.bin version with an alternative firmware (b-rad or zorander).
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned

Yep i know, and i use your OSD with the b-rad firmware. But i lose my own wallpaper that works with the b-rad firmware if i put your OSD mod on the usb stick.
Looks like your background overrules the custom wallpaper that wdlxtv does allow.

Could you give me a push in the right direction where to look for a how-to edit a .bin file.

Here are the steps for the osd.bin file (cramfs) :

- mount -t cramfs lilibabe.osd.bin /destination_dir/ -o loop
- then replace the file i_don't_remember_its_name.png (i think it's welcome_background_something.png) by your own wallpaper (renamed as the replaced file) in the directory /destination_dir/osd/image
- then recreate the osd.bin : mkcramfs /destination_dir/ lilibabe.osd.bin

That's all !

PS : i don't know if you have to recreate the md5sum for the file modified. Maybe try to delete its reference in the file md5sum.txt

Next time, i will also try to post just one version and, with a script (thanks to hnadov2k9), you can create your own version (language, normal or big thimbnails, etc.).

But i don't want to spend too much time on this.

What would be great is a mega script that ask the user for tons of parameters (language, graphics, etc.) and then create a custom wdtv.bin or osd.bin ; all this with a nice ui of course !  ;)

No, sorry, you have to change manually the background by mounting the .bin and recreating it after the changes.

But if you're using my mod (osd.bin version) with b-rad's firmware, i think it's possible. Those who use it can better answer than me...

What do i need to do to get the posters to fill the entire box.

I originally had them all sized to 120x180 and have resized a few to quite a bit larger and even some to 162x216, but they still don't fill the entire box like on your screenshot.

I have reset to factory settings , and deleted the wdtv folder but still no luck

thanks

Strange thing... Normally, 162x216 is the right size (ratio is 3/4)

Ok thanks guys about the poater size, i deleted all the images and started from scratch and now they fill the entire box :)

How do you normally resize , i take the pic from impawards and resize in photoshop, just wondering if there is an easier way because now i have to re-do 250 posters ;D

I don't think you'll have to do all that work ! Try to delete the folder created by the wdtv at the root of your usb stick/har drive or unplug the wdtv. Then retry, normally it will works...

For now i'm working on the virtual keyboard, the thing that people don't use and needs to redo nearly 200 images  ;) I had already skinned but I repeat it because I don't like it !

If I install your firmware bin instead of b-rad version, Laurent-G osd is compatible yet?

No! Then you´ll have a FW with orig. functions and only with another look.
If you want Moviesheets working you´ll need the lilibabe.osd.bin file to use with WDLXTV...!

The typical size of a poster from _http://www.moviegoods.com is 11" x 17" in a portrait format and the ratio of sides for preview pic is 2:3 (1.5).

I think it depends on the country... In France, it's rather 3:4, that's why I chose this ratio !

Small disappointment with my virtual keyboard... everything was ready, but finally I realized that there was a slight alignment problem that I can't resolve  :'(

I designed transparent png for the letters and a background for the keyboard with the keys ; in this way again I won >100kb... but it seems that the bg or the kb widget is slightly resized, causing a small alignment problem, not really embarrassing but i like when it's perfect !

So I have to redo all the work...  >:(

Feel free to adapt my mod to your tastes, personally I like text smaller, but then it depends on the tv used and sight !

Audio playback is cool but not quite in the same style as the rest...

But without doubt other users will be interested ! Good idea in any case, if my work can be used for other users...

Can you change the color of the subtitle to yellow with black outline. The default setting sucks. I know you can do it with the other B-Rad firmware but I don't need extra stuff.

I want to ask you something, Im interested like @dwoz in incrementing my thumbnails size. Im from Spain and I cant do nothing with the polish version, can you do the same with the Spanish version? And another question, How many thumbs fit in the screen with this new sizes?

Thank you very much lilabe, you mod is genius!

Not available for now, but it could be done !

Give me the translation (in capital letters with eventually special characters) and I'll do it...

Words to be translated : VIDEO, MUSIC, PHOTOS, SETTINGS and a month for the calendar (not too long).

According to google : VIDEO, MUSIK, BILDER, INSTÄLLNINGAR, MARS

If you're using WDLXTV, you must use osd.bin version (i don't use it but i think you don't have to rename lilibabe.osd.bin).

Great job.

I had a couple of quick questions.

I wanted to make the font bigger (using an old SD Television).  I FTP'd in and looked at the *.xml files and the font file.  Is the only way to change the font to go and change it in each tag in the *.xlm files or is there something I can do in that font file to make them a little bigger everywhere?  What include will get me the file list in the folder view (that's the one that is hard to read).

If you could include a stylesheet or something and give users an easy way to control the fonts etc for different types of screens that would be a good improvement if it isn't hard (unless you can do that already and I didn't figure it out).

Unfortunately, doing it manually is the only solution that I know... For the stylesheet, i don't know if it's possible...

Try 'grep' to list the xml files that are using the tag <font> !

have you tried using this OSD mod on 0.5.6 with webserver addons? has anyone? performance?

im using 0.5.6 with webserver addons and thumbnails enable from movies, and the performance going into folders are slow! i have about 5 other bins in the root. i would like something wtih a much fast response, thats why this thread is a good read, however i love the function on webserver addons...

anyone have any suggestions?

But in my opinion, 2x6 thumbs are too small and 1x3 are too big... could you please take into consideration making something intermediate?

I think you gotta meet this !

Indeed, if we put thumbnails on 2 lines, horizontal space is limited to 6 (because of information banners up and down). It's the same for 1x3. Without taking into account the significant overscan on some tv...

Maybe you can try to :

- reduce the size of these banners
- reduce the horizontal and vertical spacing between thumbnails

This way you can possibly put 2x5 thumbnails with size 192x256px :

- horizontal : 5x200* for thumbnails, 4x15 for horizontal spacing, 2x110 for horizontal margins
- vertical : 2x264* for thumbnails, 1x15 for vertical spacing, 1x90 for top margin, 1x87 for bottom margin

* 203 = 192 for thumbnail + 2x4 for borders
* 264 = 256 + 2x4

And sorry for my bad English.

This is very nice. Is there an english menu for this? I like big fonts as I'm using a crt tv.

lilibabe, I really love your osd it looks much nicer than the original osd. Actually I try to use it with b-rad's WDLXTV 0.5.6.2 and from time to time (quite often) the movie does not start. I navigate to my movie, press enter or play, the screen gets black and nothing happens. I ssh into my box, remove the osd.bin by renaming it to something.disabled, reboot and the movies starts on first command.

Do you have any clue on this behaviour?

bye,

Sorry Shiny, I don't use this fw so i can't answer... Maybe try to ask b-rad why it's incompatible. It seems that with the older b-rad's fw it worked, so he's probably more suited to know what has changed... Maybe he can try my mod with its mod.

Tip : if you want to "test" new preview mode, you can do the following :

- rename 'basic_browse.xml' -> 'basic_browse_preview.xml'
- rename 'basic_browse_preview.xml' -> 'basic_browse.xml'

The preview doesn't work completely yet, but it's just to get an idea...

Hello lilibabe,

First of all I want to thank you for this awesome OSD Mod. It's so much better than the original OSD.
I also wanted to ask you, if you could change the word 'PARAMETERS' into 'INSTELLINGEN' or 'OPTIES' in the dutch translation of the word Settings.

Thank you in advance..
Keep up the good work!!

Thank you for your excellent OSD Mod. It works perfect! I have only one request to do if it is possibly... Could you make some kind of modification to get the background image from the HDD or USB root as WDLXTV does? If this is not possibly could be the background with a major quality in a next release? I notice it is near the 90k and I see some banding in my TV with this quality...

Thank you in advance...!

Sorry, I already tried it but I can't, I don't have b-rad's skills !  :'(

Perhaps b-rad or someone else can help ?

Sorry i'm not Englisdh, what do you mean by "I notice it is near the 90k and I see some banding in my TV with this quality..." ?

Sorry... I am not english either! I will try to clarify: I see some pixelation in the background image in my TV. I suspect the background file is compressed to much (filesize is near the 90k now) and maybe you can make it at major quality. I dunno the size constraints for the WDTV but I believe it is up to 300k...

Thank you Lililabe for your effort and great design.
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned
Post by: lilibabe on August 18, 2009, 07:51:41 AM
In fact it's 90k because it's highly compressed png (so lossless) ; same background with same quality in jog would be maybe 300k, so it's not the problem.

Png is 1280x720px, same as original one, and is downscaled/upscaled depending on your tv, so background seems sometimes pixelated... (the original from WD too !)

I also believe that semi-transparency (column to the left for example) above the background makes the image less nice.

All I can say is that this is not the background image that is of poor quality, but treatment by the wdtv !

Using version 0.2, having Lilibabe OSD, LaurentG addons, and more.

When navigating through web interface, some images are missing.
For example, http://192.168.0.249/osdImages/settings_system_browser_list_btn_n.png gives me a blank picture.

Edit : I have blank picture for weather background and for clock baground on my TV too.

Yeah, the lilibabe is missing some images, some are just white/blank. You can now specify another background image in the config, or none. See post for suggestion of a background image.

162x216 is not a (real) problem, i don't see a difference of quality, but for 324x432 it's not so good.

That's right ! Some unused pictures in user interface were simply filled with white or transparent in order to save space.

To correct that, you can add the missing images of the original firmware or maybe change the xml code.

Maybe i could design these missing pictures but i'm not motivated for now  :o

All is possible but if thumbnails will be larger, they will also be higher !

Problem is that there's not so much room in height... Maybe 2x6 in 162x216 pixels could be 2x5 in max 180x240 pixels.

Hi again Lilibabe he is the minor fixes for Portuguese Language.

Where you have "seconds" you can change to "segundos"

In "Configuração / Video / Subtitle fronteira" where do you have "crosso" you can change to "grosso"

In "Configuração / Fotos" Where do you have ":/Nex" you can change to "Sequência de fotos"

That´s all. Hope to see new releases of your FW soon!!!

"Grosso" and "Sequência de fotos" were modified, "segundos" was well translated in translation file.

But there's a problem : it seems that translated words aren't all taken into account by the wdtv (wd's fault !). I can't do anything... (see with wd)

Tnks!!! I have one question and I have 100% sure that I´m going to ask something stupid or impossible.

There is some mods that can make you put sheets of the movies but you have to put either WDLXTV or ext3-boot FW and load xxxx.bin aplications with a USB Pen-Drive, for example, every time you boot the WDTV. Is there a way to implement this option directly in the FW ? I mean I turn on my WDTV then I put my Pen-Drive with Batman.mkv, Batman.jpg and Batman_sheet.jpg then when I select the movie It shows the sheet then when I click again it starts the movie.

There's certainly a way to do that but I know almost nothing in programming... I have already asked lots of questions to knowledgeable people here in this forum but it seems that they prefer to develop for wdlxtv  :(

I look like you (without hope) a charitable person helps us to go further with the default firmware !

I also try to fake the "moviesheet function" by enlarging the size of the thumbnail (1 per page) but result is ugly as the wdtv limits the size internally.

There's no stupid question !

For the installation of WDLXTV and LaurentG's app, see the dedicated topics. For my osd mod, just place the file named lilibabe.osd.bin in the /app directory.

Thanks for quick reply. My wdtv doesn't have IP address so I can't connect to it. As i seen alot of ppls mention about the directory such as /app. where can I find it? is it on the wdtv device? how do I open that directory without having IP address. Since I don't have usb to ethernet adapter. Please advice

Thanks

You can install WDLXTV without having an ethernet adapter. I can't give you step by step setup of WDLXTV as i don't use it but once installed on your usb key there will be an app/ folder where you must place my mod.

Hi Everyone,

Have any1 successfully run both LaurentG and OSD mod on WDLXTV fw? I have successfully installed the OSD in WDLXTV firmware but can't get the LaurentG installed. After I installed the WDLXTV firmware, i put lilibabe.osd.bin file and LaurentG files (event-osd.app.bin, LaurentG.app.bin, LaurentG.app.event, and LaurentG.conf.txt) to the root of my pen drive and stick the pen drive in the wdtv device. After that I unplug and plug back in the power cable of wdtv, the wdtv device just stop at the start up process with black screen and doesn't do anything. So, I've tried to removed all of the LaurentG files off my pen drive and the WDTV start normally with OSD mod graphic. If any1 know how to run both LaurentG and OSD mod at the same time on WDLXTV fw, please show me how to do it

Thanks

If you know how to modify a .bin file, you can delete this reflection. Try replacing the png file 'video_thumb_frame_blister.png' by a blank one ('photo_thumb_frame_blister.png' for audio/music thumbnails).

It works perfekt on my WD TV.

For how long had you been waiting until you switched off your WDTV when it only showed the black screen?
Because it takes some time until it boots with the unofficial Firmware, LaurentG and this mod.

It's frozen after I put LaurentG app and OSD mod. I can't even power off the wdtv, i have to unplug the power. It only works one or another. I can not put them both in my pen drive. Do I need to modify anything for those files to be able to make them work at the same time? If you have working version of both files, Can you send them to me?

Thanks

Ok, so here is step by step guide :

1. Mount the file wdtv.bin : sudo mount -t cramfs wdtv.bin destination_dir/ -o loop,offset=32
2. Locate the file named ''video_thumb_frame_blister.png' in 'destination_dir/osd/image/'
3. With your favorite paint program, create a 170x224 px (if you're using "normal" size thumbnails) image with transparent bg then save it in png format (same name as other file)
3. Replace the original file with yours
4. Recreate the file wdtv.bin :
- mkcramfs destination_dir/ wdtv.cramfs
- md5sum wdtv.cramfs | dd bs=32 count=1 > wdtv.md5
- cat wdtv.md5 wdtv.cramfs > wdtv.bin
5. That's all ! (you can also do the same with 'photo_thumb_frame_blister.png' for audio/music thumbnails)

How to quickly and easily modify the osd theme ?

Blue isn't your favorite color ? Here is how you can change my osd mod according to your taste.

I suppose that you already know how to mount wdtv.bin (or lilibabe.osd.bin) and recreate it once modified. I suppose that you have Photoshop.

Once mounted, copy the entire directory 'image' (osd/image) to another place available on windows.

Open Photoshop, open a new document and fill it with a color. Go to the scripts toolbox and press 'record'. Go to 'image>settings>color/saturation' and adjust the gauges according to your taste then 'ok'. Press 'stop' in the scripts toolbox.

Now go to 'file>automation>batch mode', choose the just created script and apply it to your 'image' folder (also select 'record errors in a file' at the bottom of the dialog window). That's all !

If you don't want all gfx to be processed, take care to place them elsewhere before treatment and return them after). No you can recreate the file wdtv.bin.

You can also change the default blue text color : under linux, go to the osd directory and type this :

Code: [Select]
sed -i 's/0096fa/123456/g' *.*
where 0096fa is the actual blue text and 123456 the new color for text

You need to put wdtv.ver and wdtv.bin on your usb stick and you need to open wdtv.ver with notepad or smiliar and change VERSION='1.02.10' to VERSION='1.02.15' and save it. There should be now an option for upgrade.

Hi Lilibabe!
Just an idea and maybe not so hard to do: Would be possibly to modify the music CD list only? I will explain: When you browse to choose a CD (using thumbnails) you will see all the covers of the CDs, that is great. But, when you choose the CD the cover is repeated in all the songs (if you use MP3 tags). Would be possibly use an screen like the used in the playing on at this point? When the CD cover in the left and the chooseable playlist in the right using a similar template that is on playing on?

Thanks in advance for your excellent OSD!

Here  are the templates for the different movies audio/video (720p, 1080p, DD5.1, DTS, DD2.0) versions. I don't know how to do that tvixie choose them automatically, so I have done different templates.

Don't be worried Poker, i'm using 162x216 px thumbnails and i tested with the new mod (180x240), i don't see a big difference of quality.

Here we go ! New osd mod variant is online ! (see 1st post for screenshots)

Differences with previous osd mod :

- some new gfx (icons) and new background
- 180x240 px for video thumbnails

It's not the final version (that's why i just released French and English versions), "improvements" will come in next days...

Could you maybe edit the white line around the thumbnails in blue, like the thin blue line on the top off the screen in the all video section?
I think, that looks a bit more sleek.

I'm more and more convinced to remove the 3 lines of text (for "now playing") in order to save space in height. Maybe I have an idea to make the screen more cool that way...

What do you think about that ? someone found the usefulness of this information to the screen (and other navigation screen) ?

Edit : here is what i mean... (2x5 thumbnails)

Love it!! Do you think it's possible to have current time/total time during playback a little bigger? They're too little. It'd be cool to set their size (and FF speed 2X, 4X and so on...) like filename font size. TIA, OSD MOD is W O N D E R F U L !!!

All is possible ! However, depending on the tv where you have your WDTV, it looks more or less small/large, it's difficult to make as many versions as people wishs...

I've got a 32'' HDReady and they're very small... it's difficult to modify by myself? I use linux regulary and I read somewhere in previous post you explained how to mount wdtv.bin to change content. TIA!!

Post by: lilibabe on September 05, 2009, 10:21:59 AM
32" HDReady for me too... I know it's not very big, but in fact i think it's not essential and i would like small overlay during playback, not not too intrusive.

If you know linux, then you could do it yourself ! Here is how to :

- mount the wdtv.bin file : sudo mount -t cramfs wdtv.bin /destination_dir/ -o loop,offset=32
- modify xml files according to your taste
- recreate wdtv.bin file :
1. mkcramfs /destination_dir/ wdtv.cramfs
2. md5sum wdtv.cramfs | dd bs=32 count=1 > wdtv.md5
3. cat wdtv.md5 wdtv.cramfs > wdtv.bin

PS : FF speed 2X, 4X and so on are png files, not text !

Dude,

Yours is the first forray I have ever made into the world of modified OSD's and your simplicity is refreshing.

Like many people I love the WDTV but feel that the standard interface has been designed by blind incompetant badgers.  Yours just seems to work.

I have a question however.  If I test out a few other OSD's and want to return to yours it's just as simple a process as re-flashing with your .bin file I take it.

I'm kind of interested in adding wireless now (just a second box, a couple of USB adaptors, a chunky NFS and the wife can have Mylo and Basement Jaxx upstairs whilst I can have Nick Drake and The Smiths downstairs - everyone is happy) So this would involve using a B-Rad's code I take it.

Not so much space in fact, on some TVs there's a lot of overscan. Secondly, the quality is degraded by increasing the size...

No, i will adapt it for audio/photos browser (certainly 2x4 and 220x220 px to respect the "symmetry") and i will release this version for test...

As planned, i deleted the entries for "now playing" in browse mode.

Hi lilibabe,

is it possible to modify the wdtv.bin file? I have tried to mount this file but it only allow me to read only, I can't modify. Here is the command I execute:

sudo mount -t cramfs wdtv.bin /mnt/mount -o loop,offset=32

When I view the /mnt/mount folder, it won't let me to modify, it says the files are read only.

Please advice since i want to change the number of videos thumbnails shows up on the screen.

Sorry, no intermediate choice (medium size, 5x2) because of the symmetry and the screen size.

What's the best option ? Let me know...

@comando : the 5x2 version will arrive soon (some days), I'm just trying several styles of background for the thumbnails.

I almost never use photos/music modes too, but others may be interested... So, I need their opinion before making my mod rather than redo everything after it will be released.

Oui, c'est bien dans le fichier home.xml (pas xls !) que ça se passe, par contre, maintenant que tu le dis, c'est vrai que je n'ai pas testé avec une vraie pochette (la "capture" est en fait une "reconstitution" faite sous photoshop)... je vais voir ça ce soir !

En même temps, je ne suis pas certain de l'intérêt de la chose, de toute façon j'ai viré les 3 lignes "now playing" (titre, durée...) dans les différents écrans de navigation, je doute que ça intéresse bcp de personnes de savoir quel titre est joué pendant qu'ils cherchent un film dans leur colelction !

I've never tried to directly replace the files in my osd mod in those of osd/ directory of WDLXTV. But i think you can proceed like this :

- mount my osd.bin
- mount b-rad's firmware
- copy my osd/ directory over WDLXTV osd/ directory
- recreate WDLXTV

Release of the "new" OSD should occur in 1 or 2 days... I'm not very happy with my tests because rendering on TV is not so good compared to the pc

Comando,
Simply copy the lilibabe.osd.bin in the root of your HDD or stick. It is easy and more practical.
... or ...
Do you want to integrate WDLXTV and Lilibabe OSD in only one bin to flash into the WDTV?

@lilibabe: Thanks, it works :)

@rodfeli: yeah, i want to put this OSD inside the WDLXTV firmware bin file to flash at once. I just don't like to stick the USB to my wdtv all the time, it releases a lot of heat at USB port, also sometime it doesn't work and I have to unplug and plug back the power to restart the wdtv.

Just a few small adjustments and version 2 will be available. I'm not very happy with the semi-transparent background below thumbnails and items, anyway it will probably be released tonight... but it won't be the final version until i'm pleased with it !

Thumbnails mode : 2x5 180x240 px for movies, 2x4 240x240 px for music and photos.

Testing is completed, everything is fine except one or two alignments to be corrected.

Appointment in a few hours to download in English and French as a first step (other languages after I set some details and I will be happy with the result).

Warning : the size of some text elements has been reduced, but please don't ask me for bigger version ! (try first changing your 7" crt)  ;)

Would be nice see a 3x6 for Photos and CD... Generally this folders has a lot of files. But maybe that would be a problem for small CRTs and I dunno the performance to refresh the thumbnalis...

3x6 would mean 160x160 px, maybe a little bit too small for CRTs and too hard to read for the pictures and the people whose eyesight  ;)

The picture feels smaller, maybe it's the dark color of the frame. Nope sorry no A+ this time ;)

Could you please repost the last wdtv.bin file from the v2 version, so i can go back to the version before this update?
I forgot 2 back-up... sorry.

Hi lilibabe,

I have put this OSD into WDLXTV firmware and flash into my wdtv. Overall, everything looks perfectly nice and neat, the only one thing which I can't read is the name of the movie. is it possible that you can put the movie name text some where which make it stand out. such as: putting it on the top and outside of the transparent black box?

Another great OSD, thanks for your hard working

let me know

Ps: problem resolved. is wht i as thinking. put wdtv.ver wdtv.bin more the osmod bin. all on 1 pen, and restart my WDTV (i restard by taking off the power cable and turn on) them the mod as on...

And i try something. put the 3 files in my hardriver where i have my films, series etc. if i just use 1 usb driver, my hardriver and the .bins are insid, and load when im watching do i will have any trouble? with wdtv or the hardrive? or is better use a single usb pen to firmware, and them use another usb to hardriver..

Nice Update, But I was forced to downgrade to your last release.  My father is living with me now, and as his eyesight is starting to go, he prefers the on-screen "OK" button for selection instead of the white outline.

Great release otherwise though.

Why can't you read the movie title ? Because too small ? I think if I put the title at the location indicated, it won't be very cool...

But you know, as it's not the final version, I can still find another idea...  ;)

Great work on the mod lilibabe,  looks great.

I'm using ext-3 boot with LaurentG.app.bin 1.3.2. and this osd mod and the background is not showing up for me,just a black background .  Also vertical menu only shows half of the words:Video,Music...

Not sure im installing it right.  I placed the lilibabe.osd.bin in the root but it doesnt bot with the mod.  so I renamed it to osd.bin and it comes up but with no background  and the text messed up

Whats the correct way to instll this?

Thanks
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned ***V2 Updated !
Post by: lilibabe on September 09, 2009, 10:07:37 PM
@Phy : i think it's the correct way but I just asked myself the question about the compatibility with LaurentG's mod.

With version 2 of my osd mod, there's now a semi-transparent bg above normal background.

As you can choose the number and size of thumbnails with the application of LaurentG, display may not be good because my semi-transparent bg is static and only adapted to my mod...

Secondly, LG's app dynamically generates pages based on options selected, and these xml files aren't suitable for my mod, at least in version 2...

There's no solution, apart modifying LG's code accordingly...

PS : i can't do that as i don't use nor WDLXTV or LG's app, sorry !

Hi lilibabe,

Good work. I have WDLXTV 0.5.6.2, Webserver addons 0.2 and looks that everthing is working fine. Movie info sheets also.

The only thing that isn't fine is the weather and clock backgrounds but probably that is a issue for redindian ;).

Thanks for your nice OSD mod.

This is outstanding. I haven't been following firmware developments much for a couple of months, but I noticed the popularity of your thread and decided to check what all the fuss was about. I installed V2 along with ext-3. Your graphics make the display so much more attractive that now music even sounds better, or so it seems. ;)

Thanks for sharing your work!

1. I think many people don't care to know what music track is played while navigating to find a movie, so I deleted the information in version 2 (some place gained for displaying thumbnails) ; if you want this information, install v1 mod.

2. No, sorry !

I thought I could incorporate the album art in the different screens but actually it doesn't work ! (even if the screenshot of v2 suggests the opposite...). So, it isn't possible to do that, except by adding a plugin (that i can't make !).

Yeah, the selected movie is kinda hard to see. if we can have this graphic in the thumbnail then it would be great. I have tested V2, Im not sure if this is OSD problem or just my tv screen. When I do the search, the result only shows up 6 movies, the rest are cut off, I still can see the movie number increase when I navigate to 7th or 8th etc. movie.

Hi mittomen,

this is only OSD, if you want to use movie info sheet, you can use LaurentG or "My movie sheet display". To install this OSD, basically, you just need to download the file "lilibabe.osd.bin" (because you are using wdlxtv firmware), put this file at your root of you USB flash drive which is formatted as FAT16 or FAT32. unplug and plug back the power cable of your wdtv,

If you want to use my mod with WDLXTV, you have to download the file named 'lilibabe.osd.bin' and put it in your usb stick.

For movie sheets, maybe try LaurentG's app.

For settings, better address yourself to people who use these apps, this is not my case !

Since today, I uploaded a new version 2, don't know if you're speaking about this.

I changed selection frame, but still hard to read...

For the search screen, there's 10 items displayed, like browser (list). It works for me, try with the newer version if you used the old one. If the problem persists, maybe this is due to other apps that you use...

Tell me if it's ok, elsewhere, what apps do you use ?

Just installed version 2. All I can say is that lilibabe's mod is way way better that the original OSD. Just a comment, menu text on standard TV are not that readable though they are in LCD. But overall, this is a masterpiece!!! Great work! ;)

It's bad for me.

So I tried both versions. The snapshots are mine.

Okay. Then I try to roll back to the V1.

Is the development of V1 stopped?

Titi's mod should be in this forums ,search for it.  Just unzip the files to the root then unplug and replug pwr.  Movie Gui builder lets you change the backround. all you have to do is drag a backround pic into it

Yeah, the selected movie is kinda hard to see. if we can have this graphic in the thumbnail then it would be great. I have tested V2, Im not sure if this is OSD problem or just my tv screen. When I do the search, the result only shows up 6 movies, the rest are cut off, I still can see the movie number increase when I navigate to 7th or 8th etc. movie.

let me know

Thanks again for great OSD

Since today, I uploaded a new version 2, don't know if you're speaking about this.

I changed selection frame, but still hard to read...

For the search screen, there's 10 items displayed, like browser (list). It works for me, try with the newer version if you used the old one. If the problem persists, maybe this is due to other apps that you use...

Tell me if it's ok, elsewhere, what apps do you use ?

It does work fine if I use wdtv.bin file. I don't use any others apps, only this OSD. the way i do is that I copy the content of the file lilibabe.osd.bin into wdlxtv firmware and then flash it to my wdtv.

I am not sure what different between wdtv.bin and lilibabe.osd.bin files? when I flash wdtv.bin file, the search result doesn't show the transparent black box, but if I use lilibabe.osd.bin which contents are copied to wdlxtv firmware, the search result has transparent black box. I think its because of the transparent black box.

let me know

Thanks

Not stopped, but as there's no update from WD, for now there's nothing to do...
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned - V1+V2
Post by: lilibabe on September 13, 2009, 09:27:27 PM
@comando : wdtv.bin contains the entire firmware (as the original one) whereas lilibabe.osd.bin only contains the osd/ directory and its subdirectories. The first is to be used instead of the original fw, the second is to be used with WDLXTV for example.

I think the new version of WDLXTV includes choice for different views (thumbnails size), so maybe my osd mod isn't adapted for all the situations.

Concerning movie sheets, i don't know why for some it works, for others not... I think there is parameters files, maybe there's something to do there.

I repeat again, i don't use LaurentG's app, nor WDLXTV, so i can't help you ! if someone has a foolproof method...

Thanks for the real nice OSD mod: a vast improvement in legibility and design.

One query, though: I can't get a screensaver to work. There seems to be none by default and copying a suitable <screen_saver.png> into the root of the USB drive doesn't work either.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Noel

In fact, in the original fw, there's no 'screensaver.jpg' and the file 'screensaver.xml' is empty. I think the wdtv uses the file 'welcome_logo.png'.

But french users reported me this problem, it must be linked to fw b-rad.

If you really want the screensaver (is it useful ?), put a file 'screensaver.png' within the folder 'osd/image' of the osd.bin file.

Wow, lilibabe's mod is great.  Didn't realize what I was missing until loading this.

Question:
How do I edit the lilibabe.osd.bin file?  I'm a Windows user.  Do I need a special program to edit .bin files? 
I'd like to get my screensaver back.  Thanks!

I don't know if there will ever be final release, there are always things to change !  ;)

I haven't worked much these days on my mod but I'll change 2-3 things and then you can consider that this will be a final version (before next one !).

I NEED SOME HELP PLEASE:

I use the official firm 1.02.07 because is the only one that works with my hub and I cannot install the LILIBABE.OSD.BIN

I copied the file lilibabe.osd.bin to the root of each drive connected to the WD TV and even in a Pendrive connected to the USB 1 but the WD TV only shows the normal OSD.

If I install the lilibabe WDTV.BIN then I loose the usb hub support because it is based on 1.02.10 firm.

Any idea?

Thanks

Post by: lilibabe on September 16, 2009, 02:48:31 AM
There's 2 solutions Papalapa if you don't want to use version 1.02.10 :

- install WDLXTV based on 1.02.07 then use lilibabe.osd.bin (i don't know if it works as it's based on 1.02.10)
- mount wdtv.bin 1.02.07 (original fw) and wdtv.bin 1.02.10 (my mod), then copy xml files and image directory from 1.02.10 image to 1.02.07 image then recreate wdtv.bin file based on 1.02.07

Thanks a lot for the information lilibabe,

Thanks again

Here is step by step for wdtv.bin (similar with lilibabe.osd.bin).

It's your lucky day !  ;)

Mounting original wdtv.bin file :

Code: [Select]
# sudo mount -t cramfs wdtv.bin 1.02.07_folder/ -o loop,offset=32
Making firmware r/w :

Code: [Select]
# rsync -avHS 1.02.07_folder/* folder07/
Same thing with my mod, jus replace 1.02.07_folder with for example 1.02.10_folder and folder07 by folder10.

Now, you can copy xml files and image directory from folder10 to folder07 (not necessarily all files !). Delete references to files in the osd directory (osd/*.xml, osd/image/*,...) in the file named 'md5sum.txt'

Then, you just have to recreate wdtv.bin file :

Code: [Select]
# mkcramfs folder07/ wdtv.cramfs
# md5sum wdtv.cramfs | dd bs=32 count=1 > wdtv.md5
# cat wdtv.md5 wdtv.cramfs > wdtv.bin

I didn't try it, but i think it will work !

Thanks a lot for your effort and clear explanation lilibabe, and sorry to disturb you again, but which kind of program do I need to enter those commands (#sudo and #rsync)??

Lilibabe,

I have checked your OSD mod and it is simply the best that I have seen for WDTV. Thanks for it.

Question: Would it be possible that you share with us the background (wallpaper) of your latest OSD mod in jpeg format, as I would like to use it as a background with rodfeli's template set. That would be even more compliant with your OSD mod.

the background is in the template you downloaded look for  rod.png   this is the background then save it to jpg .

The background in the template is different from the one that is used in the OSDmod. Probably I am using a different version, I think I am using v2.

Apparently reading is not your hobby  :D

As mentioned p.1 of this topic, if you plan to use movie sheets, you have to use WDLXTV or something similar and download lilibabe.osd.bin (not wdtv.bin which is intended to replace original wdtv.bin from wd)

Finally, I returned back with version 2 : no more semi-transparent bg under the thumbnails but a top and a bottom frame. This will look like that :

(http://www.zimagez.com/miniature/v2b0.jpg) (http://www.zimagez.com/zimage/v2b0.php)

So, if you prefer the old version 2, hurry up to download and keep it until I will release new v2 (I will not keep the old version) !

For some it works with movie sheets, for some others not...

I think v1 worked, so i don't know why v2 won't work ! I think if there's a problem, better see with WDLXTV version and config.

Finally, I returned back with version 2 : no more semi-transparent bg under the thumbnails but a top and a bottom frame. This will look like that :

(http://www.zimagez.com/miniature/v2b0.jpg) (http://www.zimagez.com/zimage/v2b0.php)

So, if you prefer the old version 2, hurry up to download and keep it until I will release new v2 (I will not keep the old version) !

Looks nice and clean! are this available now to download?

Je je je... pas pour le Google Translator. Je parle un peu françoise par-ce que je vais souvant à Paris pour travail... mais mon françoise écrit n'est pas tres bon, desolée :-)

Actually I'm achieved to "mount" both firmwares (1.02.07 and yours based in 1.02.10) but when I try to copy the XML and image files, a message that the files are read-only and cannot be copied appears. I'll investigate because in this way I'm learning Linux but if I'n not able to do this thank you for your suggestion to contact you.

@Papalapa : in order to copy files, files must be r/w. To do this :

# rsync -avHS dir_1/* dir_2/

where dir_1 is the directory where you mounted wdtv.bin and dir_2 the directory where will take place the copy in r/w mode

and my question ist now, is it possible to get movie sheet display like laurent's app working?

@virgilgili : ok, done.

@peccavi : if you're using the "regular" firmware (wdtv.bin, original or my mod), there's no support for apps, this it to say, no movie sheets... I already tried to integrate apps in my mod, but I don't know how and I didn't get the help I need.

Zorander gives no sign of life, b-rad is not very present too... Where are elmarweber, rezmus, and all other guys ?

Second solution seems to be more possible ! But as i'm not using ext3-boot or WDLXTV, i can't test...

For WDLXTV, last versions includes the possibility to choose between different schemes for browsing thumbnails, so it signifies more work too... not too much but for now it's not my priority !

I tried to change it in file 'home.xml' but it doesn't seem to work... in fact, the third icon becomes the default selected icon, but it's not clickable (and the text at the bottom right corner indicates 'all videos', not 'by folder') ! instead, you have to move the cursor (right or left) then re-select the right icon...

I'm currently using (testing I guess) lilibabe's OSD mod on ext3-boot (v0.9.2) with no major issues.

Only one minor compatibility issue with appletrailerfs - I've lost the blue 'selection' rectangle so the only way to know which movie/icon you currently have selected is by the name that is displayed on screen.

Question:
How do I edit the lilibabe.osd.bin file?  I'm a Windows user.  Do I need a special program to edit .bin files? 
I'd like to get my screensaver back.  Thanks!

I'm a Windows user too, i installed VirtualBox with Ubuntu on it. Operations to mount the .bin file could be find here in this forum.

I could use some more help here. 

1.  I installed Ubuntu on a spare computer (first time I've seen Linux, so bare with me)
2.  Followed instructions from b-rad's website on mounting the osd.bin
3.  Then tried to copy my .png into the mounted lilibabe.osd.bin, but got the error:

cp: cannot create regular file `/tmp/osd/image/screen_saver.png': Read-only file system

4. Searched around the internet for a solution.  chmod 777 did nothing for me.  Came across some articles suggesting this could be caused by an error in the .bin file.

This is a lot of work just to get the screensaver back, but its a good experience.  Any advice would be great.  Thanks.

@tj32 : as mentioned, above, files aren't r/w after mounting wdtv.bin ; in order to do that, you must do that :

# rsync -avHS dir_1/* dir_2/

where dir_1 is the directory where you mounted wdtv.bin and dir_2 the directory where will take place the copy in r/w mode

Thank you lilibabe.  I saw the thread eariler with that same advice, but it didn't click for me.  Now I do have the files in r/w, and I added my .png.  I'm almost scared to ask, but... how do I get these back to a .bin file?

Thanks for adding rezmus big size font patch  only seems to not work, when it comes to 100% of the update is reset and remains on the WD logo, seconds after restarting and again to reinstall the update. so it happens cyclically.

Install the patch normally without rezmus and install correctly.

Hi again Lilibabe!
I just try the new version and it is really great!!! There is some things it seems wrong...
1) When you start playing a music file, the round "clock" appears in white color in a complete black screen.
2) The IP address in the about screen doesn't appears. The Lilibabe logo is great! ;-)

Suggestion
3) I would like to try the music browser with a 5x3 layout instead 4x2. Generally the music has a lot more of folders/files than video and paging between several pages it is really boring...   

Thanks again for your big effort and this excellent job!

1) in fact, the white wheel is semi-transparent, and when it's on the black bg, it appears all white ! But i hope it's not a big problem !

2) i don't know why the IP address doesn't appear, I just add the code line from b-rad's fw (<include...> in file 'setup_about.xml') ?!?

3) it's difficult to satisfy everyone : some users want big thumbnails, others want the largest number of thumbnails... I choose 4x2 to maintain "harmony" with videos. Maybe try to better classify your music  ;)

If the results are convincing, eventually I give up support for language specific versions (V1+V2).

So I'm redesigning icons in the main menu and and I'll show you the result in some time...

But can I try to get you interested in another project :)

For XBMC there is a mod called Aeon, probably you have heared about it before.
Would it be possible to make something like that for the WDTV, maybe with your skills?

Hi,
I have updated the templates for this OSD.
This Looks like:

(http://en.zimagez.com/miniature/tvix21.jpg) (http://en.zimagez.com/zimage/tvix21.php)

and if you add a backdrop image named as "front_cover.tvixie.bg.jpg" in the folder where the movie resides it becomes as:

(http://en.zimagez.com/miniature/tvix11.jpg) (http://en.zimagez.com/zimage/tvix11.php)

The backdrops can be downloaded at: www.themoviedb.org (http://www.themoviedb.org). 
I have to get rid the black stripe in the bottom for compatibility with Laurent's mod.

The templates can be downloaded from here:

Incredible but true... You are a viewer! (I am looking for the hidden webcam in my room, jeje)

I have a strange problem, first when i flashed with your .bin file i hade the thumnails pic working the i flashen in the WDLXTV-0.5.6.1, then it stoped working, i flashed back with files from here http://wdtv.free.fr/dl/osdmod_v2/international/, still not showing thumbnails?
Why is that, is there a way to get it back?

People report problems with my mod and WDLXTV 0.5.6.1 (but i don't know why), so try to use the previous version of WDLXTV.

Tried that but nothing helps to restore that, thats why is so strange.
Maybe if i could erase cache memory on the USB HDD in some way.

Maybe... sorry, i can't help you more, i don't have WDLXTV.

No No i mean i change it back to your mode files, but still not showing thumnails anyway?

I tried to make improvements to my mod but for now i think it's cool as it is. I thought about changing the frame around selected thumbnail (something like dvd case) but for 2 reasons I haven't taken the step :

- the mod should be, as said by its title, simple and unadorned
- xml file for pictures and music is the same (so, not very cool to have a cd case around a photo !)

Now, I'll maybe create a new mod : minimalistic (and energy efficient, very popular at the moment !).

Yes thats why is so strange,
the first file i tested was the one with the Swedish menu then all my thumbnails shows up.
Then i tried the 1.02.10_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV-0.5.6.2 file, and with or without yours OSD bin file.
After that i switched back to your INTERNATIONAL Bin fil then i could not seen any thumbnails pic at all.

I tested the main screen with this font (helvitica), it looks good and easy to read, maybe i will try zune font to see if it's better. But i will have to choose quickly because all this text is gfx so i don't want to redo all after i will finish !

For now, I just started the skin of the main screen, it works but i don't know if it's the position of the vertical and horizontal crossbars, when pressing 'top' or 'let' arrows the screen blinks (hundredth of a second !).

But when this skin will be ready, it will have a lot of benefits :
- quick navigation (less gfx)
- energy efficient
- TV lifetime increased (mainly black and grey/white gfx)
- good for poor eyesight (big text)

... and a disadvantage : maybe too simple !

Here is the "roadmap" for this osd mod :

- update of wdtv.bin and osd.bin (until the release of WDLXTV based on fw 1.02.11) based on fw 1.02.11, ONLY for "international" version (with icons instead of text labels)
- update of wdtv.bin and osd.bin based on fw 1.02.11 for other languages (I prefer to wait a bit to see if WD will release another version soon...)
- no more v1, only v2 (it's up to you to change the bg if you prefer the one of v1)

I have to make choices and abandon a portion of my work for me to develop my new mod (minimalistic)...
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned

There's some new files in the new beta for the new WD hard drive (with encryption) ! As I don't have one, i don't know if i could skin well its dedicated pages.

There's also a new icon for video playlist. For the rest, not much to change, it's all good for me !  ;)

So, maybe the new release for this week-end... After that, I will have to change 2-3 more things (virtual keyboard too clear,...).
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned
Post by: lilibabe on October 02, 2009, 10:50:33 PM
I will update v2 (with icons, other languages later) today but I noticed that the language files (.mo, .po) have changed.

So, if the translation isn't good, provide me with a good one (file .mo/.po, see at the end of the files).

Is someone has a new hard drive from WD (apollo) ? I skinned the different screens but i can't test...

Hello. This is my first post here. Nice to see this kind of work!
Now to pege63 question...
Confirm your wdtv.ver file in the pen`s root.
You should have this: VERSION='1.02.11' LOCATION='wdtv.bin' and not VERSION='1.02.10.
or download both of them the .bin and .ver from the link http://wdtv.free.fr/dl/

Any help on portuguese language just ask, lilibabe.

If there are corrections to add to the language file, of course you can help me !

If you know how to mount wdtv.bin, you can locate the file for portuguese lanbguage in osd/mo/pt.mo.

If you don't know how to do this, maybe i can upload all languages files so that everyone can make changes.

tried to use the osd.bin but it would always crash when I tried to open a file :(

this mod is great lilibabe but I just have encountered one problem
When I play some avi movies I cannot pause, nor fast forward or skip.
Is there a way to fix this?

My mod only changes the UI, I did not touch anything else. So, if it doesn't work, maybe it's the fault of your movie or the fw (b-rad).

config_tool -c USBICONS='yes'

By default it is commented out, but I have removed the "#" on this line and my USB drive gets displayed with a USB thumbnail, for example in the "All videos" view in thumbnail mode. I have media library on.

I have a question. Is it possible to mod it like while browsing artists and then albums in thumbnail view and then when you choose an album it changes to list mode? It is annoying that WD made it that every song in an album is like a big picture of the album cover. I know i can use list mode all the time, but it would be nice if changed to list mode only when you see the songs.

after first look and reading some of the pages of this thread (Would be great to have a serach option per thread) I love this firmware and will definitely try this if...  :)

Is this firmware based on the WDTVLX firmware in order to allow me to have network?
Is it possible to have TVIXI or movie sheet generator support?

Again sorry if I have overread something or missunderstood.

What I definitely like is the abillity to have it stored on the WD rather than havin it on a usb stick.

As mentioned in the first post, this mod is available as fw replacement OR as add-on for WDLXTV or ext3-boot => so choose 2nd version (lilibabe.osd.bin).

Then you can use movie sheets and so on, most of the apps will work... but in this case my mod won't be flashed into the memory of the wdtv (only available for wdtv.bin version).

Depending on the WDLXTV version you use, maybe it doesn't work (reported by users).

There was a problem with v.0.5.6.1/2 but it works with the previous version. Don't know for 0.5.7 (no feedback).

Sometimes NO HDMI signal gets out, then i must unplug the USB HDD, insert the USB stick to boot from the it and FW update again.
And i must unplug the power cord for it does not go off with the remote after this crazy behavor.

Just as the root/bin on the player's memory is fuckedupp for real now?
Anyone else having similar problems, i have a Samsung 40 LCD TV?

I don't have the same problems but I actually found that my WDTV behaves more and more strange at times... I don't know if it's in relationship with flashing the memory... but there's a 2 years warranty and it's mentioned nowhere on the packaging that it's not allowed to flash memory !!

It must be the FW and it is becaouse it works greate with FW "07" 1.02.07_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV-0.5.3 works perfect every problem is gone.
Maybe WD but somthing in to do this things with MOD FW, i dont know

I have a quest for B-RAD cant you do a 1.02.07 with latest WDLXTV, just becaouse .07 is the best so far of all FW

- Thumbnails size : 324x432px in video mode, 200x200px in music/picture mode, 280x280px for album art in music playback.
- List view : 10 items displayed.

How do i choose this one? ive installed the new firmware : osdmod_v2 [1.02.11]/
or do i have to install B-RADs?

Sometimes i have the video file with small squares like 10-20. didnt happen before. it goes away but after comes back, just happens max 3 times ( tested 1080p)

star wars clone wars, and it only happened once.

Thanks


Also any chance chance to see 2 x 4 thumbnails? big images easy to read and you can see the next set easily?
or can anyone point me to where i can change this, and il do it myself? dont want to disturb Mr LiliBabe, got his hands full. But thanks for this OSD :D

@pege63 : sorry, I can respond to your request (too much versions to deal with)  ::) But you can modify yourself the fw 1.02.07, there are explanations a few pages back.

In brief, mounting original 1.02.07 fw, mounting my osd mod, copying osd directory from my mod to original fw, recreating fw.

Big

- Thumbnails view : 1x3 in video mode, 2x5 in music/picture mode.
- Thumbnails size : 324x432px in video mode, 200x200px in music/picture mode, 280x280px for album art in music playback.
- List view : 10 items displayed.

How do i choose this one? ive installed the new firmware : osdmod_v2 [1.02.11]/
or do i have to install B-RADs?

Sometimes i have the video file with small squares like 10-20. didnt happen before. it goes away but after comes back, just happens max 3 times ( tested 1080p)

star wars clone wars, and it only happened once.

Thanks


Also any chance chance to see 2 x 4 thumbnails? big images easy to read and you can see the next set easily?
or can anyone point me to where i can change this, and il do it myself? dont want to disturb Mr LiliBabe, got his hands full. But thanks for this OSD :D

Very much appreciated.


Big thumbnails are only for v1 of my mod (both wdtv.bin and osd.bin versions).

For the squares, don't know, but certainly not due to my mod (maybe 1.02.11 bug...).

For 2x4 layout, you have to modify xml file (inc_video_thumb_browse.xml) in .bin file.

Hi Mr lilibabe,

Thanks for the help, but how do i open the .bin file??? i tried daemon tools, magic iso, winrar and i cant seem to open the file, in every program it says "Invalid, damaged".

Thanks
Also once i get into the XML, i presume its simple and says something like thumbnails?  ??? Also, when ive saved the bin file, do i just plug it in and it will say, do you want to update? or will i have to reflash it with the another FW and then use this one? please make my life simple :)

Thank You.

Also i would love to see in the next update, in system settings and having a option to change thumbnails automatically, will make me very happy but loads of other people too, who like different thumbs. :D

Thanks

.bin file must be opened with a linux os (i'm using ubuntu with virtualbox under win xp) => search the forum for "how to"

xml files are easy to modify but not as much as you describe ! there's several parameters to modify...

option to change thumbnails automatically => i think it's possible with WDLXTV (not with only my mod)

Ubuntu or another linux os, but it's essential if you want to manipulate the .bin file (i think there's another possibility using windows xp but much less easy.

I experienced the same problem... so i decided to share a folder between guest and host.

For xp, do that under virtualbox : machine>settings...>shared folders : add a folder in full access and name it.

Then, under ubuntu : sudo mount.vboxsf name_given_to_your_shared_folder /path_to_the_shared_folder/shared_folder

I don't know if you have to install vboxaddons for this.

WDTV Live is released in some locations and preparing to release in others soon, will you be updating the this mod to work on the wdtv live with all the additional features?
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned *****updated 1.02.11
Post by: lilibabe on October 11, 2009, 09:56:20 PM
Yes, of course ! ...........................if you buy me one  ;)

In fact, I'm pretty happy with my WDTV, I don't want to change it every 6 months... for the use I made, it suits me. In my case, the new functions of WDTV Live don't justify a new investment.

100€+120€ = 220€ ; for this price, I can almost buy a nvidia ion platform with intel atom (zotac,...) : I could do more things with it and I will be less restricted.

Update 03.10.2009 : version 2 updated
- Now based on fw 1.02.11 (only "international" version for now)
- Corrections made to the language files (.mo/.po) are to be done again ; Russian language incomplete
- Xml files relative to new WD hard drives (encrypted) skinned but not tested

- all wdtv.bin and osd.bin are available here : http://wdtv.free.fr/dl/
Hi lilibabe.

I would be trying your mod soon, mostly because of the rezmus font patch inclussion.

I assume your version 1.02.11 already has that?

Also, and sorry if it has been already asked, i have read you can change (most) subs to yellow by "edit /osd/subtitle.xml, line 3 - change textcolor=“0xFFFF00”", is that included on your patch?

And last, it would be great if either you can ZIP your releases, or provide MD5 crcs, as i'm afraid of any download corruption of the files.

Thanks.

EDIT: WOWWWWWWWWWWW

The mod is very slick!!!!!!!!!! Very nice.

Some comments:

1) I don't think anybody uses the smalles font size, can't you replace font size 24 for 46 or something? (maybe replace size 28 for 50).

2) Sometimes, when i turn it on, it says, unsuported video mode.

3) Where did you got the icons from? I would love to look for some SERIES/TV SHOWS, MOVIES, DOCUMENTARIES, ones that match.

@kwanbis :

- there's not rezmus font patch in last version, i'm waiting for it...
- subtitles are default color (ie white) but you can change the color easily as mentioned
- if there's a corrupted file, no problem, you can still flash the fw
- sorry i can't replace the size of subtitles
- "unsupported video mode" : it sometimes happens, but i don't think it's my mod fault
- of what icons are you talking about ? the one provided in the my mod are my work

I thought you know how to do it. So basically we are waiting for razmus to do it first.

- subtitles are default color (ie white) but you can change the color easily as mentioned
as far as i understand i have to mount the bin file under linux or something like that, correct?

- if there's a corrupted file, no problem, you can still flash the fw
What i meant is that if you zip the files before uploading them, they get protected inside the ZIP.

If i download a .bin, and somehow it gets corrupted, it could end up bricking the WDTV, couldn't it?

- "unsupported video mode" : it sometimes happens, but i don't think it's my mod fault
I asked because it never happened before. Ever. And it happened twice after the upgrade. Maybe it was bad timing.

- of what icons are you talking about ? the one provided in the my mod are my work
The mod icons.

I've been looking for some icons for my folders:

Series
Movies
Documentaries
Fitness
Music
Children
Others

to use as folder.jpg, and was wondering if you have some to share.

Thanks for the excellent work!

Yes, we are waiting for rezmus ! It's not a xml file to change, it's the file dmaosd to patch.

Yes, mounting the bin file and editing file 'subtitle.xml'.

Ok for zip file, maybe for next versions as i don't want to re-upload all files now ! But i think there's no chance to brick your wdtv this way, it happens to me many times and my wdtv is still alive !!

Yes, mod icons are from me. Few months ago, before making these mods, I already made series of thumbnails but in french and in size 120x180 (default for original WD fw) ; you can find them here : http://wdtv.free.fr/

I don't know if my mod can be described as fast or slow, but in any case gfx are lightweighted compared to original gfx from WD.

Sometimes scrolling is slow after flashing, but normally things return to normal after power off/power on.

Normally not, 'international' version is the one with icons for medias instead of text labels. What is in English is text like "all my videos", etc.

In fact, at the beginning I proposed English and French versions only, then people requested more languages... finally i decided to add a "icon version" because i didn't want to traduce it in Vaticanese  ;D

Lilibabe,

Ok, Bravo ... cool work indeed. I have been trying around your OSD, as well as WDLXTV.. and your last one Minimalistic.

I do have a quesiton though. And sorry if it sound newbie. (as I am one in the WD HD TV area)

What would be your reccomendaiton to be able to display Movie Sheets with your OSD. (I have tried with LaurentG and WDLXTV and it works so so. But I cannot make it works with your OSD?

Would n't it be possibel to include this in your OSD directly (within wdtv.bin) like ti is the case with folder.jpg ?

!! Updated ... a few minutes later !!

OK I found it. Your MOD is working and I managed to get the Screen Sheets. (using LaurentG. Actually a change in the conf txt file - needed to allow a different trigger file name for the sheet to be 'discovered')

However the quesiton remains: why can't you integrate the mobvie sheet display in your MOD/

It has been what? A week I update to the 1.02.11.

Now we have already 1.03.01. The only problem is no major changes were done.

Just very simple fixes. I wish they look more into the user's requests before do the WDTV firmware.

Yellow subtitles can be that hard.

Copy from one USB to the other can't also be that hard.

A lot of simples things not done!!  ::)

@lilibabe :
> please, if you want me to integrate rezmus' patch, specify systematically your language and wdtv.bin or osd.bin version.
Please at least for "wdtv.bin" v1.03.01 and English language.
Same here. Spanish would be a plus.

Quick question, why is it that you can not do all languages together? Is it related to space?

No worries Lilibabe. Sorry if it looked like I was complaining to you.

I was just mentioning. No worries, you have been doing hell of a job!!

More than WD guys are doing. Where in the firmware the white subs are stored?

Isn't that a way to change that?

Congrats...

No problem Pangadaywalker, I was kidding !

I'm not too concerned with subtitles but from what I know, in early versions, color and size of the subtitles could be changed in file 'inc_subtitle.xml' (I don't remember exactly the name of the file). Now, in recent versions, it's not possible this wa y!

Ok, noted.

Languages = pictures representing words in each language

So, for each png file, there's only one picture, you can't select the set you want by simply changing the language in the settings of the WDTV. Maybe it could be possible with WDTVExt, but there never had a lot of explaining to this app.

Hi janez

Do you have .jpg files, if not you need to get a poster and save it to the hardrive with your mkv file and name it the same

for example

300.mkv
300.jpg

If you search on this forum, you will see that there are several apps that will do the work for you !

I don't know for your country, but there's a lot of websites where you can download these .jpg and resize them to your needs.

hi lilibabe, just wanted to know. are you working any new Mod or updates to the existing mods for WDTV.

Not for the moment. I was planning to make another mod but I gave up because :

- I'm trying to make something for the wdtv live
- I would like to make another mod but idaho680 already working (and almost completed) on something in the same style and it seems to be very nice, so there's no need to do 2 times the same

But previous mods will be updated as soon as a new firmware will be available.

As requested by rodfeli, I created thumbnails for folders in the same style as the default folder (when there's no artwork).

It's not a complete set, just a few thumbnails but you can complete according to your needs...

There's text labels and pictograms/logo (example files, not all formats !), feel free to make your own thumbnails : music, videos, by genre,... it's unlimited !

PSD file : http://wdtv.free.fr/osdmod/dl/folders_for_simple.psd

For photos and music thumbnails, add 30px left and 30px right (dark grey #191919).

If I understand, its the text that describes selected item. I'm using the english language firmware in list view mode. When selecting movies or music, the titles are small and very difficult to read in sdtv.

Ok, so it seems it's all the texts in list mode or in settings menu...

Just to know which size is good for you, is the text in the main screen is ok ?

I can modify some things but not all (now playing text for example), otherwise it will break all the design.

I'm not really sure which size is good, based on the subtitle font size maybe 34 is good. Anyway as long as they are bigger than the default size and enough to read, that would be fantastic.

If its not too much to ask, can you teach me how you're editing this? maybe I can follow an instruction so I can do this myself. I know a little programming so I can follow the steps. Thank you so much.

There's no need to know programming, you just have to know how to mount and recreate the .bin file (step by step instructions were described in this topic and elsewhere).

Most of the work is just editing the xml files.

2 solutions for you :

- I'll describe more precisely how to do it by PM
- I'll do it for you

Thanks lilibabe!

I really like the style of your mod. You did an amazing job on graphic design. To make the things consistant with you OSD mod, I'd like to use folder icons with the same style. Could you provide some images? i.e. folder icon (folder.jpg) for Movies, Kid's Movies, Action, History, Family, etc...  8)

Maybe later but now i think i have to redo all my work because of version 1.03.01 !!!

I think the reason is that WDTVLX is not able to read apps from a NTFS file for using during boot.

As far as I understood this is only possible with FAT or FAT32 formated which you would not want because HD files are over 2 GB usually.

Correct me if I am wrong.

I think the reason is that WDTVLX is not able to read apps from a NTFS file for using during boot.

I have the same problem. No apps loaded during boot, neither custom osb.bin (Lilibabe's i.e.), also the net.config file is not parsed due in this file I have fixed IP settings and my WDTV is getting dynamic IP from my router. I can't use WDlxTV in my NTFS HDD from 0.5.6.1 and up with exception of 0.5.7.0 that works fine (weird!). This not working versions (for me) works perfectly on a FAT formatted USB with the same config files that in the NTFS HDD.

@B-Rad: Do you think it is some of logic in this behavior? Can I do some tests to found the problem? and ... Thank you for your great job!  ;)

The problem I have sometimes is that the moviesheets are not being displayed (only a black screen) but if you play a file and back the moviesheets being to be displayed correctly. is this your problem? Or directly you see the movie icon when get inside the folder (and maybe LaurentG app not loaded correctly  ::))?

I tried to go to 0.58 with no luck. LaurentG and lilibabe's mods did not work with the new firmware from b-rad. So I promptly went back to 0.57 and things are back to normal. No worries though. I am certain that b-rad will get things sorted out soon.

Lilibabe this is a great theme. I am using the wdtv.bin, but I would like to use the osd.bin but it will not work for some reason. I was using wdlxtv and I am just supposed to put the osd.bin onto a hdd and turn it on with it plugged in right? Do I need to install anything prior to this? I would love to use this. Please help, thanks.

Try to power off/on the WDTV, try to rename lilibabe.osd.bin to osd.bin

the hard drive you put this on, is it one big partition?
if the drive is always on with the wdtv and that is where your apps / custom firmware is, it should be on a 2GB or less FAT32 partition at the front of the drive..

the osd should be with the other apps and / or custom firmware, as noted above, on the front of the drive in a small FAT32 partition or on a small flash drive.

small being 2GB or less, there have been lots of reports of trouble with anything over 2GB, some it works for, some it doesn't, 2GB or less is playing it safe is all..

cheers and good luck ,it is worth the trouble to get this working!

It's 5x2 thumbnails, I think 6x2 and 3x1 was for v1 ; thumbnails are 180x240 pixels.

Excellent, thanks a lot.  The auto-resizing works, but it looks awfully pixelated.  I know it's just eye-candy, but I like it to look good.  Makes browsing a digital library a lot more enjoyable.

By the way, thanks for the excellent OSD replacements!  I haven't tried Minimalistic yet, but I am excited to see how it looks on the big screen.

Which version are you using ?

Quality in 180x240 px (2x5 or 2x6 thumbnails) is quite good but it degrades in 360x480 px (1x3 thumbnails).

I am using the one based on 1.02.11.  I have been sizing them incorrectly with MSG, and that's my own fault.  I thought the 2x5 posters were bigger than the 2x6 ones, and I have been trying to find the right size.  Turns out I should have been using 180x240 the whole time.  Thanks again for the info!

Hi,

I installed the latest WDTVXL and LaurentG
after install of the WDTVXL i installed LaurentG.
after that i got the thumbnail setting etc and a fresh background (purple with blue).
i placed the lilibabe minimalistic.osd on a stick and it loaded fine.
No i have NO backgrounds at my moviessample folder (did work with the default LaurentG).
What can i do to let the backdrops work with minimalistic?

Thanks for any help!

that's all i want :)

I adore the minimalistic layout it's really awesome!

It's possible to change the bg but not possible to have a different bg for each movie for example.

And I think this mod without the black bg wouldn't look as cool...

But I'm sure other users have succeded to make this mod works with WDLXTV+LaurentG...

Put the file 'wdtv.ver' too, and be sure the version is greater than 1.03.01 (edit the file).

movie.txt = no !

Thanx so very much fo helping a newbie. so one last thing, if i like to have for exampel appeltrailerfs and Movie GUI Builder i download LaurentG and appeltrlerfs? But for trailers i have to have network and is it easier to build Movie GUI Builder with network, so i can download information from IMDB? Can i use both the appeltrailerfs and LaurentG:s WDLXTV Application Pack or is it just for the WDLXTV, i have only a WDTV?
For both this i need to have a flashmemory in my WDTV right, then it doesent work if i take it out?
Is Movie GUI Builder the easiest way to build a nice presentation of your movies? Do i build on my PC, MAC or on my WDTV, Movie GUI Builder is a part LaurentG:s WDLXTV application if i understand things right. I now have Juliojs theme & enhanced but if dont want to have it and change it with Laurent G:s application, is it an easy way to get it out of my WDTV? When i choose video in my fw i can choose between UpnP, but that is empty what is that and how do i use it?
Thanxs again, hope u can get me some answers, thanxs

For some reason i cannot eject my NTFS HDD using this OSD. It works fine usually.

It starts the eject process and the circle display comes up.... It stays animated but doesn't do anything. I left it for half an hour but nothing.

I am using WDLXTV 0.5.7 & the LaurentG mod.

Thanks

I already have tried countless solutions for this frame border, without ultimate solution...

Too thick border = not very aesthetic
Too thin border = not very readable
Highlight the whole image = not very convincing depending on the image
...

If I remember well (I'm not sure because for now I'm using another mod), there's a small "OK/>" at the bottom of the image, so it should be readable...

Hi everybody, first post, first question...


Which version are you using ?

Quality in 180x240 px (2x5 or 2x6 thumbnails) is quite good but it degrades in 360x480 px (1x3 thumbnails).

Guys, can you tell me what this thumb size code means? Such as 2x6, or 2x5, or 1x3?

Because,

180x240 seem to be 3x4 (180/3=60, and 240/4=60)
360x480 seem to be 3x4 (360/3=120, and 480/4=120)

So, I think you guys are using different system to call these ratios. Can anyone let me know?

Thank you.

I am a total newbie at this and was looking for mods, found lilibabe's simple osd mod and am totally blasted away!
This is so cool, you should be doing this for WD for money. Look amazingly clear and makes more sense. Also, in general,
I think lilibabe has a great artistic taste.

What he did that is very useful, that he enlarged thumb display area, so now one doesn't have to use binoculars to read movie titles. This single change makes more sense than whole WD original fw! Because, there is no point in using thumbview, if you can't read the titles on thumbs, and have to read the title line below. With his modification, thumb view is finally usable.

I am loving the way it looks!

Have no idea on how to approach this though. Just checking for now. Got this thumb size thing I need to understand first.
Because my original fw 1.3.1, has thumbs at 120x180 (2x3). If I were to install it, then I would have to find and process every thumb for my 300 or so movies, as judging from screenshots on the first page of this thread, lilibabe changed the thumb ratio to 3x4.



Anyway, thanks guys.

Guys, can you tell me what this thumb size code means? Such as 2x6, or 2x5, or 1x3?

For example, 2x6 means 2 lines of 6 thumbnails.

The ratio is 3x4, which is more suitable for French movie posters than the original 2x3 from WD. But depending on your country, maybe 2x3 is better adapted...
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned (1.03.01)
Post by: n00bie on December 17, 2009, 11:05:40 AM
Ah..! Of course! Thank you!

No, the 3x4 thumbs are better adapted to posters in US as well.

The bigger problem is the choice of 3x4 or 2x3, because it will affect a lot in a future.

What if have to use the original firmware later again? My 3x4 adapted thumbs won't fit.
What if WDTV will be superceded by better brand and model? Is it likely that the new player will use 3x4 or 2x3?

As one collection grows, to move from one ratio to another becomes bigger problem. The posters are not well adapted even to 3x4. The title is often jammed in the middle of a picture, so I am often either stretching it or cropping the poster to make the title bigger. I often remove small text and logos. I sharpen the image, as it is displayed at lower res, and the TV scaler isn't that good at all at static imaging.

Changing everything from one ratio to another is a lot of work. All the cropping and cutting needs to be done again, on each thumbnail individually.



Question: lilibabe, what is involved in taking your v2 mod, and changing the thumbnail ratio from 3x4 to 2x3? Will v2 with 2-5 display area, even fit 2x3 thumbs, or will it have to be redefined as 2-6 to accommodate? Is this something I could do myself? If it is changing numbers in xml, I probably could. I am not good at linux, (but, I have a friend who is).
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned (1.03.01)
Post by: lilibabe on December 17, 2009, 10:14:59 PM
Yes, I know that changing from 2x3 to 3x4 is a long work... All I can say is that all my mods are 3x4, so if you decide to use "simple" then, after you decide to move to "minimalistic" or "picto", it'll be still 3x4.

Most of my thumbnails fits 3x4, so I have not much problems.

If you want to use 2x3 thumbnails with my mod, you'll have to change some xml and (optionnaly) gfx files. You can keep 2-5 or change to 2-6. There's not just one number to change in xml files, but all the layout.

Maybe I can do it for you but before, I strongly advise you to try ratio 3x4 with some thumbnails : you will see it's better, bigger, ...
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned (1.03.01)
Post by: n00bie on December 19, 2009, 02:06:52 AM
You're right that 3x4 ratio pictures provide a better view. No wonder your layout looks so good! Besides cleverly using bigger area (something that WD designers didn't see), and thinning the unsightly thumb frames, you also make it count by using 3x4 thumb ratio! This is where a simple color mod is different from a functional upgrade. Yours is not just a mod It add functionality by making a previously existing but useless function useful!

It is not the look I worry about.
I am concerned with remaking all the thumbs from 2x3 to 3x4, and then, say if my WDTV dies and I need to buy WDTV Live, or may-be even a completely different player, remaking all of them again, now from 3x4 to 2x3.

Like I said above, I often make custom pictures, because the posters and dvd-covers are not laid out to displayed so small.

I don't know if stock continuity is something that other WDTV users have in mind or not.

I understand that it is probably going to be very hard for me to change your mod to fit 2x3 pictures. Thank you for clarifying.
I cannot ask you to do this modification for me. You can't do that. It is not good to stop the development of other things to satisfy people one-by-one. However, I'll be checking your work from time to time. If you decide to make a 2x3 version of Simple for your own reasons, I will be happy, jumping and downloading :)

Thank you, lilibabe!!!

I'm not working on the WDTV or anything else for now ! I can make my mod to be 2x3 compliant when I will have a little time...

But since you're busy worrying about the portability of your thumbnails, what makes you think that other players adopt this ratio ? Maybe it's 2x3, 2x4 or something else... who knows !

So, stay stuned, I will try to see what a 2x3 will give...

Just some clarification : English version ? Big thumbnails (about 4 thumbnails per page) or small (about 12 thumbnails per page) ?

Sorry to add yet another question to thing long thread but is there any way of reducing the menu options for each?

Im wanting to get one for my olds and it would be heaps easier if they only had the folder view option for the videos rather than having to scroll to it every time, or maybe can the folder view option be made first to come up rather than all videos option? that would work to.

Just wanted to say thanks lilibabe for some awesome looking osds they make it look great.

In the past, I already tried to make folder view the default item, but it did'nt work (it was the first item displayed but nothing happened when you selected "ok").

If you want, you can disable the library in settings. This way, there will be only the icon "usb" displayed for each media.

I'm not working on the WDTV or anything else for now ! I can make my mod to be 2x3 compliant when I will have a little time...

Don't know about others, but I am sure will be happy on that day...

Quote from: lilibabe
But since you're busy worrying about the portability of your thumbnails, what makes you think that other players adopt this ratio ? Maybe it's 2x3, 2x4 or something else... who knows !

Nothing much, but: It is already 2x3. The same thought will be in the mind of future developers... Backward compatibility. Making it to be accepted immediately. Of course, if there is an another leader in home movie players, with a larger share, they may decide to keep it different than 2x3. I agree, there is just no guarantees.

Quote from: lilibabe
So, stay stuned, I will try to see what a 2x3 will give...

Just some clarification : English version ? Big thumbnails (about 4 thumbnails per page) or small (about 12 thumbnails per page) ?

Yes, English.

Bigger thumbs than original. Thinner frames. I never understood why WD displayed 12 thumbs in the middle of the screen and not laid them out to full screen. The rest of the screen is empty.

About 4 per page? That might be too big, no? I thought your final version of osd simple mod, having 2 rows 5 thumbs each was P-E-R-F-E-C-T.

I can see why you think 4 thumbs in a row. 2:3 is taller than 3:4. So, with 2 rows, there isn't much increase in size would be available, unless full screen area can be used. 2 rows of 2:3 would need 6 thubs in each to use left and right sides of the screen.
Thus, may-be you already see it. May-be there is no option other than 1 row 4 thumbs. Or, 1 row 5 thumbs.
I don't know. I don't think I would want them to be huge. Just big. But, you have a better artistic eye than I can ever hope to have. You decide.

Thank you, lilibabe.

What about others? Anyone has any input on this?

Post by: n00bie on December 21, 2009, 10:18:34 PM
Maybe that is something that can only be changed in the firmware, oh well...
That was quite noob of me I didnt try that disabling the library sorry that should make things simple enough for them.
Thanks for such a quick reply too.


I use it with library off. There is an image of usb device, and it is a preselected default. No other options. Very simple.


I also find that the olds get very much lost in too many movies. There is no page scrolling.
What I did was I made black thumbnails with movie genres text in gold-orange. Name them just as the genre folders but, with alt255 character preceding name (looks just like space):

Action <---this is folder name. All action movies dropped in it.
[alt255]Action.jpg <---this is the black thumbnail for action genre. Space char isn't sorted first, but alt255 does.
[alt255]Action.mkv <---this is an empty text file named mkv to activate the Action.jpg display. WDTV thinks it's a movie.
(for some reason WDTV doesn't always sort .avi first)(also, all movie names beginning with numbers, need "The" to precede the name, so that they don't get sorted before folder image.)


This produces nice genre selection first. WDTV renders black with a plastic diagonal shine, so it looks very native and nice (If not for the stupid shortcut icon that WDTV places on top of the image.)
Because I did not use "folder.jpg" method, the first thumbnail INSIDE of each folder, is still a genre thumbnail, reminding them in which folder they currently are.

This breaks hundreds of movies to scroll through into just tens per genre. However, the hard part is to decide how to determine which genre a movie belongs to, so you could expect it to be found there. I have these:

Action
Adventure
Crime
Comedy
Cartoon
Drama
Mystery and Fantasy
Sci-Fi
Non-Fiction (history, bio, documentary, research, etc.)
Home Made (their favorite)
Post-Apocalyptic
Western


If you do this, and find that some movies show up as folder thumbs instead of genre pictures, then delete the wd database, it's corrupted.

Ok, so I will try with 2x6 or 2x7 thumbnails per page (about 240px height).
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned (1.03.01)
Post by: lilibabe on December 22, 2009, 04:30:37 AM
@n00bie : ok, I made what you wanted (I hope !).

There's 2x6 thumbnails, size = 160x240 px.

You can download it here : http://wdtv.free.fr/osdmod/dl/simple_v2%20%5b1.03.01%5d/english/n00bie/ (http://wdtv.free.fr/osdmod/dl/simple_v2%20%5b1.03.01%5d/english/n00bie/)

lilibabe,

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I will load it and post on how it looks!
(can not do it tonight or tomorrow, - my boss wants all my time :(  )

But, lilibabe, you're almost TOO good!

I'll be back as soon as I can...
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned (1.03.01)
Post by: n00bie on December 24, 2009, 12:49:10 PM
WOW!

Installed the "n00bie" mod and it looks awesome!

lilibabe, thank you so much! You're something, I have to tell you.
I was very pleasantly surprised to find that there are no shortcut icons in this mod! So, my custom folder pictures look great!
The thumbnail display is 2 rows by 6 thumbs and the area itself is a lot larger (about 30%) than the default wdtv firmware provides. I am able to read the titles that were totally unreadable before.
The frames of thumbnails are nice and thin, the butt-ugly original wdtv frames are gone!

I also like this mod because now that the filenames are left-justified, there is almost no scrolling going on, except for really long filenames.

I am using (relatively small by today's standards) 42 inch LCD, and even on a screen like that (not true 1080p), everything looks clean and sharp.

The 2:3 thumbnail format insures a smooth and painless transition, all I had to do is re-batch the big originals (already at 2:3 in various pixel sizes) all to a new size 160x240, that's all!

This mod is just what the WDTV needed to function properly. I am extremely happy.

Thank you, lilibabe, very much!

Lilibabe Merry Christmas, I use your mod simple and unadorned (1.03.01) from the first versions in Spanish, wanted to know if I could put the image I had before for the usb and remove the crescent effect have the folders for the version in Spanish. thanks and happy holidays.

I'm not sure to understand all...

What do you mean by  :

- the image you had before for the usb ?
- removing the crescent effect ?

Post by: laplaga on December 25, 2009, 06:56:52 AM
In effect I mean what I marked red in the picture that comes in all the pictures and icons and then if I give to videos, music or photos by folder I get an icon that is usb1 or usb2 and only appears a folder you could put as I have put in the picture? My English is 0, I am using the google translator :)

Certainly the resolution for the videos was not 162x216? and for photos and music that was?

Do you mean user can change the background (.jpg on the root of your usb stick) or just changing the default background ?

Case 1 : not possible with "normal" firmware, use WDLXTV
Case 2 : maybe not very suitable because other gfx are blue...

The background from WDlxTV is horrible.

If it doesn't work with "welcome_background_bg.jpg", try using a .png (welcome_background_bg.png) because simple and unadorned needs a .png file instead of a .jpg file.

But I don't know if it's ok with WDLXTV.

If you want to keep WDLXTV, you have to download the file named "lilibabe.osd.bin" (not wdtv.bin).

Put it on your usb stick (I don't know if it works with a big HDD) then power off/on your WDTV.

If you want to keep WDLXTV, you have to download the file named "lilibabe.osd.bin" (not wdtv.bin).

Put it on your usb stick (I don't know if it works with a big HDD) then power off/on your WDTV.

Do you need to keep it on your USB stick after you flash it?

Post by: lilibabe on December 31, 2009, 08:22:20 AM
Yes, I think so.

WDLXTV (lilibabe.osd.bin) : no permanent flash (usb stick need to be connected)
"normal" firmware (wdtv.bin) : permanent flash (usb stick can be removed)

Excepting the gfx part, there's no other changes made by my mod, so it's as stupid as the original fw !  ;D

But with my wdtv, when I press play button, it doesn't show the jpg but it plays the content of the folder.

I'm not sure but I think it's possible to have 2 partitions on your HDD : one for the apps and another one for your medias. Try to search this forum for the how-to.

Have you done a release with 1x3??

I know someone asked you the same question a a bit of time ago, but didn't ever find out if you did this or not...
Whould be awsome anyway...the 2x6 is a little bit small, you barelly see the covers (and if you see it you can't read many titles)

But I don't know if I made another 1x3 for the other versions...

Dear lilibabe,

I'm using MSheet to display movie sheet and there's a small inconvenient browsing the thumbs for the MSheet, as you can see below the thumbs selected is not very different then the other. below picture shows that a blue outline is the sign (other than the Movie Sheet)
(http://titi.wdtv.free.fr/Screenshots/MSheet_sheet.jpg)

So I asked titi (MSheet developer) to refine them and I'm using you folder (when selected) as a fine example (http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=1645.msg29649#msg29649 (http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=1645.msg29649#msg29649))

But he said that if I'm using your mod then I should I asked you and give me the script as seen here (http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=1645.msg29859#msg29859 (http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=1645.msg29859#msg29859))

I'm a little bit confused here, can you help me since I'm a big no for linux programming :)
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned (1.03.01)
Post by: lilibabe on January 14, 2010, 10:48:15 PM
Ok, I will see what I can do !

If I understand well, I must :

- modify the script for MSheet
- make a selection frame with "OK" at the top

Is that right ?

I don't really know about the script thing :P but yup for the "Ok" in the top of the thumbs. it will be perfect coz all I need is a different thumbs view/style for the selected thumbs.

Sorry, I was too busy this weekend to do what you want...

Just another question : when you use my mod, does the selection frame displayed with MSheet (see your screenshot above) is the selection frame with "OK" or another selection frame ?
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned (1.03.01)
Post by: ~¤ kyogoku ¤~ on January 17, 2010, 08:15:26 PM
For example my HDD structure looks like this:
Code: [Select]
ANIME
TV SERIES
MOVIES
300
KNOWING
CLOSE
when I'm entering my root folder, the display use your osd with the "ok" at the selected frame but when I enter the MOVIES folder my display change to MSheet and it goes like my screenshot above with no "ok" on the selected frame.
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned (1.03.01)
Post by: lilibabe on January 17, 2010, 10:05:49 PM

Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned (1.03.01)

Post by: lilibabe on January 18, 2010, 04:30:47 AM
I think its titi's thats why I go to to him first :)

So, I don't know if I can help you !

In fact, @@thumb_active_n refers to video_thumb_frame_bg_n.png (not selected) and video_thumb_frame_bg_f.png (when selected).

These png are included in WDLXTV and in my mod.

So, if Msheet uses the png from WDLXTV and not from my mod, it's useless to change the MSheet xml code !
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple and unadorned (1.03.01)
Post by: Titi on January 19, 2010, 03:16:24 AM
MSheet has his own extra xml files but it use the default images in the osd you are running.
But MSheet xml files are designed for the official osd.
In the case of lilibabe's osd, MSheet is using the @@thumb_active of lilbabe.osd.bin but the "OK" is hidden by the thumb because there is no extra space declared in the table of @@thumb_active in the xml.

MSheet is also designed to have the possibility of loading a special skin adapted to the osd you use.
There are two ways to do this:
- the user make his own skin and load it on the wdtv (look at my homepage for more info)
- the osd developper can integrate the MSheet's xml file into the osd.bin, and change them to have the same look and feel of the rest of the osd (thumb's aspect ratio, position...)

Unfortunately, there's no more space for thicker border !!

Since I started to mod the UI, I haven't found a viable solution for those damned borders !  >:(

Yet I have tried dozens of borders... Thicker border is the best choice (see picto mod) but it forces me to remove a thumbnail...

I also tried to obscure unselected thumbnails and make selected one lighter, but people don't necessarily want to see the blackened unselected thumbnails !

I'm going to see if I can find a brilliant solution for the final version !  ;)

~¤ kyogoku ¤~ : there's still a "problem" with MSheet and my mod...

I "studied" Titi's xml code and it appears that the allocated space to thumbnails is very small... Maybe I can resize my frames but I don't know how they will look as I don't use WDLXTV+MSheet.

The ideal would be to create a MSheet skin specially adapted to my mod, but again I couldn't test... ask a blind man to set the TV !! It's the same for me !

Can you provide me with a screen capture or a photo of exactly how it looks on your tv ?

I'm running ext3boot 1.03.10FIX by Dexter, lilbabe's simple and unadorned v3, LaurentG's OSD app and all movie sheets work fine.
I also run apple trailers, and the webserver and webserver v2 addons.

FYI, use the "event-osd.app.bin" from the LaurentG app and not another one.

found your work yesterday. Your mod is very cool. Checked out V2 & V3. It looks greatful and you get my respect that you do this for us and the wd-community. At the moment I use V3. But got some questions. Is there any possibility to change the menu background? I use the official Firmware with your wdtv.bin but in Windows and Linux (Ubuntu) I cannot open it, don´t know how. And the text is a little bit too short for my eyes, how can I change this?
Whats about a videopreview for the titles. Is that possible for you or limited by WD or the Sigma chip?
I would be glad if you could help a newbie with this problem.

Mounting the file wdtv.bin was explained several times in this forum...  ;)

Search for something like "sudo mount -t cramfs".

Once done, you can change the background, increase text size, etc.

But there's no way to add a video preview mode with the WDTV1.

My Linux experience dates from.......my 1st mod for the WDTV !  ;)

To modify the files, you must do this in the terminal window :

rsync -avHS firmware/* new_folder/

where firmware/ is the folder where you mounted the wdtv.bin file

Hi lilibabe,

thanks for your help. It works now, yeah  ;D. I have two questions about your style: in V2 there was next to the menu icons a text (video, audio, picture, preferences). I think you know what I mean. But in V3 there is no text. But for me it seems that itś unclear. Is it possible that you make it again. Or how I can make it for my self? Which folders/files must be edit?

Thanks for all and hope to see more of your work.

The best way to understand and learn is to study the code of the 2 versions !  ;)

Mount both versions and compare the files. For example, the file named 'home.xml' describes the main screen layout. You will see what changes, what was deleted, etc.

Okay, I´ll try this. But only one more thing (and then it should be really all): how can I change the colors? I think it must be in the .xml files. For example, if I´m looking a video, in the windows (press ok-button) the time of the movie is blue. But for me, it´s hard to see, so I would be glad if I could change the color of this for my bad eyes ;D Is there a list of numbers for which color which number is?

Thanks for all your help.

Nice weekend and best regards

Greggy

The blue progress bar is a png file, so you can't change its color by just until you provide another png file !

For the rest, you can for example change the text color and its size by modifying xml files : depending on what you want, there's more or less xml files to edit...

To know which color is "#123456", you can for example go there : http://www.colorschemer.com/online.html (http://www.colorschemer.com/online.html)

Looks great!!! Well done. So the last few days I´ve take an intensiv look on the osd folder in the firmware and figured out how I can change the different things so I can change the text color in home screen and other files. Thanks for all lilibabe.  

But one question: your mods are only in the osd folder, isn´t it? So Other files are not edited by you?

Hi Lilibabe,
I compared the international V2 and V3; I think the V3 has a bug.
When playing a movie for several minutes in the V3 and then press stop and after several minutes trying to play the same movie appear the message invalid file, this does not happen in V2 with the same movie.
The V3 was installed more than once and the bug was the same with diferent movies.

Hi mate, just go to page one for the link, or http://wdtv.free.fr/osdmod/ (http://wdtv.free.fr/osdmod/) , unzip it to a usb stick, plug stick into WDTV. Unplug and replug main power to WDTV and it should load up. Sometimes there is a delay, but don't despair it will happen. I'm pretty sure that's basically it.

Thanks guys. Got it working now. Thanks lilibabe, your a legend. One more newbie question..sorry. Is it possible to improve the thumbnail quality on 1x3? I've resized the images to 360x480 using Nero but some are still quite pixelated. If I hooked up a HDMI cable from the WDTV to the TV, would that make a difference?
Title: Re: OSD mod : simple (1.03.01) ***V3 FINAL
Post by: lilibabe on January 27, 2010, 05:48:50 AM
Thumbnails quality in 360x480 px < "normal" thumbnails !

I think the WDTV internally limits the size to 240px or something like this, so there's a loss of quality when the thumbnails are displayed in 360x480.

This topic has been discussed in this forum many months ago... if I remember well, someone had found a solution but I don't think it applies to my mod  :(.

And I don't think an HDMI cable will change something.

lilibabe.osd.bin is only required if you plan to use WDLXTV.

For "normal" firmware, just put the file 'wdtv.bin' and 'wdtv.ver' on your usb stick and boot the WDTV.

wdtv.ver could be find here : http://wdtv.free.fr/osdmod/dl/wdtv.ver (http://wdtv.free.fr/osdmod/dl/wdtv.ver)

Thank you very much, V3 - Small (nice for large TV) 3x8 is very practical, special 3x8 :-) but little pity that complex size is more smaller than in V2. On 1080p TV are around square sides empty. Maybe would be thumbnails bigger or I am too much pragmatic :-)) - maximal thumbnails on on screen and maximal size of each of them ;-)

Just did some readings. Looks like I have to put wdtv.ver and wdtv.bin on the USB drive. But if i do so, will the WDTV be flashed again with lilibabe's mods and replace the current ext3-boot? I'm kind of confused now.

Also, could someone please give me a simple step by step guide to which file(s) i need and how to install them on my WD TV Live.

I looked around the web and youtube for answers but since I only recently bought this media player and am quite a newbie i thought it would be quicker to just aske here.

Would it be possible to create firmware version with only one thumbnail on screen? Or maybe 3X1 or 2X1 thumbnail version.
That way thumbnails would be wide enough to put cover and description of the movie on movie.jpg.

If you use WDLXTV, I think you just have to put a file named 'background.jpg' or 'background.png' on your usb stick.

I think this will not work, because WDLXTV only replace welcome_background_bg.jpg by the one it find on your stick. Problem is that simple osd is using welcome_background_bg.png (if I'm not wrong).
the best way to change the background with simple osd is:
-put your welcome_background_bg.jpg on your stick
-type this code into the S00custom-options file on your stick
Code: [Select]
mount -o bind /tmp/welcome_background_bg.jpg /osd/image/welcome_background_bg.png

Hey Lilibabe, love your mod. I know that your finished with simple and unadorned v2 and v3. But I think it would be really cool to make your movie selection screens kinda like silk mod has his laid out. Kinda scrolling across with a set of 7 or 8 thumbs. I dont know if its possible. I would prefer v2, but either one would be cool.

No solution ! I tried everything, without success.

With a serial cable it should work, but I don't have one and I'm not qualified enough for this !

I know you probably already tried that but just in case.

Do you have or could get a Kingston DataTraveler flashdrive (this is the one most accepted)?

If yes, format with this software to Fat or Fat32:

Reboot factory settings, and then try to install the new software again.

I know you probably already tried some of this but who knows.... it could help.

Thank you for your advice Pangadaywalker, I don't have a Kingston DataTraveler flashdrive but I tried with several usb sticks, several methods,... no way !!

But now it's less problematic to me since I received the WDTV live...

If you want, you can use the transparent version and change the background.

The 3x8 view is great for me, because I've lot of movies in my folder. The only problem is the loading of the thumbnails. My thumbnails ahve a very small filesize, but it still keeps a lot of time. Is there a way to automatically load the thumbs into cache? At the moment, it only loads the thumbs, when im browsing through the folder.

I don't know ! Maybe with WDLXTV or another app it is possible, but not with only my osd.

Look at the pictures and choose the OSD you want : http://wdtv.free.fr/gen1.html

Go here : http://wdtv.free.fr/dl/gen1/

Navigate through the appropriate directory : for example 'simple_v2 [1.03.01]/', then choose your language and download the file named 'wdtv.bin'.

Put it on your usb stick with the file 'wdtv.ver' (before this, update this file : open it with notepad and modify version number, for example 1.04.00 then save).
