Post by: b-rad.cc on February 22, 2010, 10:49:58 PM

Code: [Select]
WDLXTV-Live-0.4.1.0
  *** Include wdtvlive.fff with wdtvlive.bin and wdtvlive.ver when you flash ***
  * resized youtube home dark box image to fit
  * changed windows resolve order back to official FW order
  * added zoster's 11/12 & bonus 10 item list views
  * included techflaws corrected german UI translation
  * added 2 additional video info overlay options (see S00custom-options)
  * fixed smbd zombies in ext3-boot-live
  * ssh/scp/sftp clients changed to openssh binaries
  * included ssh-copy-id for passwordless login from wdtv-live
  * fixed openssl cert/private symlinks
  * full md5sum & netstat included
  * /sbin/usb.power.off and /sbin/usb.power.on turn off/on usb bus power (thx pibos)
  * updated S00custom-options
  * updated libxml, libssl, libz, & libcrypto
  * moved around libs to mirror debian-wdlxtv-live
  * added /etc/screenrc & /etc/ssh/ssh_config & /etc/ssl/openssl.cnf (bind mount over for custom)

for those curious be sure to check out how i fixed the smbd zombies in /bin/run_samba, talk about a workaround :D

new files for themers:
video_run.2.xml
video_run.3.xml
inc_list_browse.10.xml
basic_browse.10.xml
inc_headline_property.10.xml
inc_list_browse.11.xml
basic_browse.11.xml
inc_headline_property.11.xml
inc_list_browse.12.xml
basic_browse.12.xml
inc_headline_property.12.xml

modified:
basic_browse_thumb_video.*.xml

I also changed list.watch and modified how the various numbered options are included. Look inside any basic_browse or thumbnail xml file and you'll see that I include the correspondingly numbered other files. Makes for less bind'd mounts.

you only need to include wdtvlive.fff if you haven't already flashed to official fw 1.01.24

To me some times with 0.4.0.0 and older b-rad fw the wd tv live it completely stuck and the only way to unstuck is to power of/on the power cable.
With any original fw this NEVER happened.

Why is that happening b-rad?

A lot of thanks for your time.

THX b-rad for your work... could you plz move the minimal fw to the right folder on my mirror!? would be great

0.4.x lenny plzzzz ;)

btw:

Code: [Select]
/sbin/usb.power.off and /sbin/usb.power.on turn off/on usb bus power (thx pibos)
maybe we should change dmaosd to send usb power command to our device, so we can control it via setting (should became handy with upcomming wdtvext gui settings support).

awesome, b-rad ! ;)

thx a lot for this

youtube is not working for me since the upgrade, but i'll try factory reset once again
maybe i missed something...

yes great work again, i'll definitely donate.


youtube is not working for me since the upgrade, but i'll try factory reset once again
since there is a bug in the 1.01.24 you have to:
1. Go back to 1.01.24 (http://www.wdc.com/wdproducts/updates/?family=wdfwdtv_live) firmware.
2. Do a "Reset to factory defaults".
3. Go to YouTube and connect (it should work now!)
4. Upgrade to 0.4.1.0

Yes you have a valid question.. I too am noticing with B-Rad's firmware that my WDTV Live seem to freeze and need a power recycle now. whereas, with the WD firmware they never acted this way

Hi,

Upgraded firmware to latest version  and I noticed that the following feature is missing:

"extra subtitle size options of 44, 48, 50, 56, 60, 64, 68, 72, 76, & 80 "

40 is still the biggest value I can setup in preferences. Any ideas?

I delete the # in the option file, but it doesn't work.

0.4.x lenny plzzzz ;)

btw:

Code: [Select]
/sbin/usb.power.off and /sbin/usb.power.on turn off/on usb bus power (thx pibos)

Hi. Does this mean that USB power goes off when the box goes to standby? Or do we need to do something more to turn off USB power while on standby? I checked s00custom-options and there are no settings for this. Please advise.

TIA!

To me some times with 0.4.0.0 and older b-rad fw the wd tv live it completely stuck and the only way to unstuck is to power of/on the power cable.
With any original fw this NEVER happened.

Haha, then you haven't been using your WDTV for a significant amount of time! ;-)
I've had everything with the original FW, from simple freezes to spontaneous resets to errant behaviour and videos that continued playing in the background until i powercycled it!

So what's the official plan for optical drive support? UMSP all the way or will you fix the cdmanager, b-rad? As much as I like the concept of a locally running UPNP server, UMSP seems quite a bit beta, and there hasn't been an update in a while... Also, it requires EXT3boot and an USB drive to load from, which i consider just a makeshift solution, I'd much prefer if it made it into the flash - is that possible?

I'm something doing wrong with the usb-power option. After I enabled both settings, my usb-drive isn't accessible anymore :(
When I delete the last 2 entries from the /conf/config file, it is accessible again.
Can somebody tell me what those settings exactly are and how I'm supposed to use them? I thought it would shut down my usb-hdd when powering off my WD TV Live...

It is working fine. When I put wdtvlive to sleep, disk is unmounted and powered off. When I press power on remote again, wdtvlive wakes up and disk is mounted again (NTFS).

0.4.x lenny plzzzz ;)

btw:

Code: [Select]
/sbin/usb.power.off and /sbin/usb.power.on turn off/on usb bus power (thx pibos)
maybe we should change dmaosd to send usb power command to our device, so we can control it via setting (should became handy with upcomming wdtvext gui settings support).

Things have gotten a bit convoluted in the library situation. I am working on it, but there won't be a new lenny--in anticipation of the squeeze-wdlxtv-live that I'm almost done with. I'm going to post an ext3-boot-live test image for intrepid folks to play with and tell me if anything is broke, because a lot had/has to be changed.

--edit-- however you can upgrade your lenny to the most recent version of wdlxtv-live by md5sum'ing all the files in the latest version, then using that md5 file to check all your lenny files....probably ignoring /lib and /usr/lib because I've moved things around there. If a file fails or is missing, then copy it over / diff it....grep -v all the 'OK' files.


I'll see about whipping up something for /proc so that I can catch the 'usb power xxx' messages and relay them to /proc/led when they happen, if its enabled. Much more elegant solution that shutting off power to usb bus anytime interface goes down ;D

Now to see how much work it'll be to integrate 1.02.14...

Did they pull the 1.02.14 update? Direct download still works, but it seems it's not linked on the official product page anymore!...
Anyone know why they would pull it?`Sounds to me like there's some serious issues... but then they'd pull the file itself first and foremost, right?

Doesn't sound too interesting. Still no 10-second skip in the video-replay (UP and DOWN are UNUSED, WD!), and the WDTV's rewind issues (esp. Xvid) start to drive me crazy... Still no optical drive support or support for USB-hubs - meh!

why do you keep saying UMSP requires ext3-boot? Miyagi has included it in the webend.app.bin pretty much since it was available.

B-Rad,

How did you fix the SMB zombie issue? I took a look at the run_samba file in the new ext-live and it looks much more elaborate than the one I have in 0.2.21-Debian. Something to do with SSH keys?

BTW, copying over the new run_samba to the Debian version just makes the command "/bin/run_samba start" wait forever.

I had that problem too, but in the end tried the username "localhost" and its (very long) password that is already in the "auth" file, with the Deluge GTK UI's connection manager in Ubuntu. The GTK UI also lets you activate the "autoadd"  watch folder that I couldn't activate with the web UI. Deluge now works perfectly.

I think I've found a bug
running under hardflashed minimal 0.4.0.0
and testing ext-boot 0.4.1.0 from USB-thumb
- the WDTVLive network name changes from the previous specified one in S00custom-options
- I cannot login into WDTVLive from finder under OSX
- YouTube doesn't find any content avaiable (it did with minimal 0.4.0.0 since I beforehand installed 1.01.24)
- If I uncomment any S00custom-options line after rebooting it never gets to the UI and cycles infinitely on and off.

Is this maybe just culprit of my hardflashed minimal 0.4.0.0
which doesn't play well together with ext-boot 0.4.1.0 ???

Hi B-rad

I love that you want to move to 1.02.14, that will solve some network (smb especially) issues i had.

But my reason for posting is really the thought: is it possible to incoorporate the first Youtube interface wich in the earlier FW's didnt identify as a TV-unit, i would really like to have access to the content thats now restricted.

If it for any reason is not in your interrest, could it then be done by an app.bin wich would overwrite the new interface and take its place in the OSD (not knowing if romfs' makes that a problem)

Keep up the good work, its much appreciated !

I second this request.

Upgrading from 0.3.4.5 to include more restrictions isn't in the best interest of the development of a versatile mediaplayer.
Also, I'm more likely to downgrade to the offical 1.10, to get away from the out.of-sync issues with AC3.

oh, that sure makes it harder if the source isn't there. But, if I understood it correctly, the source is still there, it's the WDTVL's system of accessing it that has changed (from 1.24)? I understand it will require a lot of re-writing, if you keep using post 1.24 fw to base your own hacks. Is it still the best way to continue, letting WD coding team do most of the coding and you doing edits to make it keep doing what you (and we, your followers on this forum) want it to? Or would it be a better idea to keep developing from 0.3.4.5 and instead only insert new fixes into that code, without introducing known limitations?

Actually, I couldn't care less about Youtube, HD or no HD. I rarely ever use it on my computer and never on the WDTVLive. (youporn, on the other hand ;D j/k). I just don't like the concept of restrictions being forced on me if I upgrade.

I'm more interested in learning when the out-of-sync-AC3 will be fixed. If I've understood it correctly, the OOS was introduced with fw 1.11, which I also seem to remember, as I don't think I ever had any OOS incidents on 1.10.

I confirm the youtube "no content" bug on 0.4.1 even after factory defaults.

I like your job. thank you very much.

I've investigated this and there is some sort of security/other 'feature' preventing youtube keys from being generated from inside wdlxtv-live. If you reset and then go into youtube your keys are set to NULL instead of a long string of characters. If you install official fw 1.01.24 and factory reset, then make sure youtube works it'll work in wdlxtv-live until the next time you factory reset.

I am going to include functionality to save the youtube keys and re-include them in the case they disappear after wdlxtv-live reset in next version.

Hi,

I have a problem with Ext3-boot 0.4.1.0: from Windows I can't see any longer the drives attached to the WDTV live.

The windows shares (both samba and NFS) are mounted correctly on the WDTV.

From windows I can access the WDTV via telnet or ftp, but the box does not show in the network neighborhood.

Went back toext3-boot 0.4.0.0 and everything works fine

hi,

i took a look at the messages file, and when i list any filesystem mounted from an app.bin file i get this kind of errors:

Feb 27 14:20:12 WDTVLIVE-24b2a user.info kernel: unable to read inode block - inode=135, block=100

it seems that it can't read ext3 fs anymore !

but i cant get ANYTHING to run

-downloaddaemon doesnt work correctly (is installed, but doesnt start the daemon)
-NONE of the OSD mods (for which i initially installed your firmware) works, i either get no icons, only the default background screen or some weird colored screen
-(and at this part im beginning to tear that effing device apart) I CANT EVEN DOWNGRADE anymore.
the goddamn "new firmware" does not show up
ive tried reformatting my pen drive, restartet couple of times, reset to factory defaults and so on, i dont know what to do anymore...

In another post you told, that you switched on the USB power off/on feature.
Here is the begin of all evil, because this feature doesnt work for a lot of people!
Turn this feature off again in S00custom-options and reboot - eg.:
config_tool -c ETH_DOWN_ACTION9999='suspend && sleep 2'
config_tool -c ETH_UP_ACTION00='sleep 5 && resume'
Title: Re: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X
Post by: DasGensu on February 28, 2010, 04:32:44 AM
i would change it.... if that worked...

because well, actually absolutely nothing(and with nothing i mean not a single thing) seems to be working anymore. the player itself still plays videos, but it wont change settings, upgrade, downgrade, install things proper or ANYTHING.

ive tried to change these settings, but that thing simply does not care

just to be sure: i edited the S00custom-options file:

## the following ethernet action will stop all running services and then turn off power to the usb bus
## unless you know what you're doing it MUST be the last action
#config_tool -c ETH_DOWN_ACTION9999='suspend && sleep 2 && usb.power.off'

## the following ethernet action will tun on power to the usb bus then start all services
## unless you know what you're doing it MUST be the first action
#config_tool -c ETH_UP_ACTION00='usb.power.on && sleep 5 && resume'

pulled the power plug, put in the pen drive and put the plug back in.

does. not. work.

the settings are found in the S00-custom-options on the player, but it still turns off all USB drives when turned off.

No - dont put # again - it will do nothing!
You must overwrite the settings!

Take a look at the comments on the top in S00custom-options:
## config_tool commands only need to be executed _once_ then they can be re-commented

Therefore, once a setting is changed after reboot, the file S00custom-options is not mandatory.

maybe ill try again when all this stuff is out of alpha version, in this state its useless to me

The problem is, that there is no (official) information how do remove/revert a setting in S00custom-options.
Simply to comment a line again with # will do nothing (of course).
My workaround: Editing /tmp/conf/config directly via SSH.

WDLXTV-Live-0.4.1.0

you only need to include wdtvlive.fff if you haven't already flashed to official fw 1.01.24

I'm running WDLXTV-Live-0.4.0.0 and have not loaded the official WD FW 1.01.24.

Just to confirm, I MUST load this new kernel wdtvlive.fff in order to use WDLXTV-Live-0.4.1.0 ?

With WDLXTV-Live-0.4.0.0 installed, I copied the 3 files (wdtvlive.fff & wdtvlive.bin & wdtvlive.ver) to the fat32 usb stick and rebooted. I don't get the usual upgrade prompt with these changes :-

VERSION='1.20.04.WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.0'
LOCATION='wdtvlive.bin'

How do I apply the WDLXTV-Live-0.4.1.0 upgrade ?

[Edit = Solution]

0. Started with WDLXTV-Live-0.4.0.0 installed.

1. Install WD Official FW 1.01.24 (wdtvlive.fff & wdtvlive.bin & wdtvlive.ver)

2. Install WDLXTV-Live-0.4.1.0 (wdtvlive.bin & wdtvlive.ver)

3. Last thing, after several factory resets before & after upgrades, YouTube does not work.

for those who are still having youtube "no content" problem
after you flash the official fw and reset to factory default
you have to run youtube at least once (according to b-rad's earlier post, it's to generate some kind of key)
then flash b-rad's awesome fw

Not sure if something is wrong with me, but I have tried many times to upgrade to B Rads frimware on a WDTV Live unit I bought 2 weeks ago. I have tried 2 different usb flash drives. I have wdtvlive.bin, wdtvlive.ver, and 500custom-options on the root of the flash drive. When I turn on unit with flash drive inserted it just boots to the wdtv stock firmware. I did have the auto play option enabled, which I ended up turning off. Then auto play was on and I tried firmware flash I got a message "auto play content could not be accessed"

My stock version of the wdtv live is 1.01.24

Any help appreciated...

Just installed this firmware, and love the new back grounds etc. Also, I've changed the videos thumbnails to 8 on a page instead of 10, which I really like as the thumbs are a bit easier to see now.

Is there any way to decrease the number of thumbnails in the Album thumbnail view? would be great to see slightly fewer albums with larger thumbs.

Thanks
Title: Re: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X
Post by: b-rad.cc on March 04, 2010, 04:07:21 AM
OK, here is a really good release. I slaved over this for a very long time--it should be the best version yet ;D ;D

Look in S00custom-options for various settings.

of note is USB_POWER_OFF. I modified the module that controls the USB bus power so I control it now. This means if you set USB_POWER_OFF to 1 and don't have any apps/osd/deluge/nzbget goin it'll shut down the 5V. If you have any of those things running then shutting down the power would be pretty stupid and therefore I prevent it. You can also tell the status of the OSD cat cat'ing /proc/led (as long as you don't cat anything to /proc/led yourself ;) )

also, finally upgraded Deluge to 1.2.1 ;) I noticed in my brief (after the b*tch of upgrade) check to make sure it works, that all settings are available and nothing is greyed out anymore.

I've added auto export mode to both Samba and NFSD, OH YES, I've included kernel NFSD server ;D. So the auto export mode is enabled independently for each. With NFSD you'll have to set NFSD_AUTO_DEFAULT before NFSD_AUTO will work. Here is an example:
Code: [Select]
config_tool -c NFSD_AUTO_DEFAULT='192.168.0.101(rw,async,no_subtree_check) 192.168.0.234(rw,async,so_subtree_check)'
Samba auto export is on by default to match system (samba sharing chosen in menu) export of samba shares. NFSD must be enabled and NFSD_AUTO must be enabled seperately.

You can password protect your Samba exports in the following way:
Code: [Select]
config_tool -c SMB_NOGUEST=ON
adduser SambaUser -D -H
echo -e 'SomePW\nSomePW' | smbpasswd -c /tmp/smb2.conf -a SambaUser -s

Now you have your shares available to SambaUser with password SomePW

XFS & ReiserFS drives will now work

I'm a bit unsure of how to work them in gracefully, but I've included all the available NLS codepage packages for foreign filesystems. You can set a NLS and a CODEPAGE. Look in S00custom-options. Right now it doesn't do anything, but maybe just having the module inserted is good enough? If you set NLS & CODEPAGE the modules are inserted before drives are mounted.

Yes, A LOT of work went into this version ;D

Code: [Select]
WDLXTV-Live-0.4.1.7
  * WDLXTV_G2 now available for WDTV HD Gen 2 devices
  * added better system On/Off detection for turning off/on USB bus
  * patched to show subtitle delay without audio channel info (thx rezmus)
  * Deluge updated to 1.2.1-1
  * included nfsd (kernel) NFS server
  * new auto-export mode for Samba & NFSD servers
  * Samba binaries from official fw 1.02.14
  * Samba shares can be password protected
  * NTP works with static IP & wireless now
  * included all available NLS/codepage modules (see S00custom-options)
  * XFS and ReiserFS drives now supported
  * rezmus patch for custom fonts in OSD themes
  * online-delayer now pings self instead of gateway
  * Deluge auth file located at /conf/deluge.auth
  * list.watch is now wdlxtv.watch
  * fixed a few lib symlinks

Wait - wait you DON'T understand what i mean.

I mean the problem with the appearing of how much ms appear when i press left or right during the movie but with the new fw it fixed.

It appear how many ms is change the subtitle during the movie.

And why you are so irritable with me?

Can anyone explain to me please how exactly i enable the usb power of to work?

I already erase the # from the "config_tool -c USB_POWER_OFF=1" but what other i must change to work?

A LOT OF THANKS.

Hi b-rad!

After upgrading to 0.4.1.7 cannot access my windows shares anymore.
Got the message: The network share cannot be accessed!

Downgraded to 0.4.1.0 and everything works without a problem!

Thanks for your GREAT work!!!

Same thing happened to me. Downgrading to 0.4.1.0 as we speak. Just went back and shares are working fine!

Have yet to figure out a solution about usb disk spindown. I am using eiri and webbend apps and as you wrote the "config_tool -c USB_POWER_OFF=1" hack doesn't work when running apps.

Keep up the good work!

out of curiosity, if i were to flash the latest minimal FW, has the usb/external power down thing been fixed?

I'm asking because i'm currently running on the 3.4.5 and i completely had forgotten to unplug my external 1.5 tb from the Live and it went roughly a day connected and powered on....it never shut off as its supposed to, or as it used to before i flashed with the 3.4.5 min FW.

Then when i plugged the external into the cpu, i got a "usb drive no recognized" notice...my 2nd one in 3 months... my heart sank, and i started getting frantic... but then i unplugged the external from its power source, reconnected it to the power and cpu and for whatever reason it reinstalled the drivers and then worked...thankfully everything was still on the external....

B-rad had responded that it'd "eventually" --meaning the external -- power down...but after leaving it connected for a day, i can definitely see that the power light on my external stays on...

Hi B-rad,

I hope I understood right on this forum that youtube HD worked in version 3.4.1 and is since that version not working anymore. What did change in the code and is it hard or impossible to fix this in the > 4.x versions?

(I understand WD stripped this feature due to the legal demands from youtube)

Kind regards,

Mark

Look, you WONT be shutting down the usb bus if you have apps/deluge/nzbget installed/running PERIOD. Do you realize how ridiculous a request that is?

You should buy devices that respond correctly to spin down commands and suspend like they should when they're told to.

@emil, kgian, & steve. All the entries are still in my 'network shares' area and all still mount correctly. Not sure what your guys problems are, but I know I need about a million times more info than 'it doesnt work!!!'. Any time people have said stuff about this a reboot on both ends fixed it.

Does 'network shares' still work as intended for anyone like it does me? I have zero issues ::)


@mark: go search the forum, this has been answered many times.

I can confirm the following is not working with 0.4.1.7 :-

1. Shares mounted via 'net.mounts' - some shares are mounted in a somewhat random choosing.

2. My USB FAT32 16GB Key plugged into the WD is no longer accessible across the network.

Rolled back to 0.4.1.0 and what ya know everything works now.

Separate issue, I'm noticing stuttering on MKVs with DTS audio. Down-grading firmware to 0.3.4.1 and re-testing.

Is anyone having a similar problem ?

ok, but the shares do at least all still show up?

They just fail in the mount?

Can you look in the logs (grep mtSMB /tmp/messages.txt) to get the commands and try and mount them yourself? Or just tell me what the logs say. If they are showing up there must be something fairly simple.

I only use NFS, but all of them go through cifs-interceptor so have accompanying cifs...and all my cifs work if i disable cifs-interceptor...but they're all Samba cifs and not windows ::)

--edit--
in fact look through /tmp/messages.txt to see all the message that occur during the failed process. Its been pointed out over at G2 thread that ftpd doesn't work, because I'm lacking pam security modules...maybe theres some more helpful messages for me with you guys ;)

--edit 2--
another thing to try is to pull /bin/smbtree out of ext3-boot-live-0.4.1.0 and replace the one I've provided. The debug messages have changed, perhaps the message format changed slightly too ???

I cant seem to mount more than one drive through the configuration in net.mounts.

This one mounts without problems:
xmount "//192.168.1.75/Movies" "CHIMERA, Movies" cifs "user=XXX,pass=YYY"

These however do not mount:
xmount "//192.168.1.75/Downloads" "!CHIMERA, Downloads" cifs "user=XXX,pass=YYY"
xmount "//192.168.1.75/Music" "CHIMERA, Music" cifs "user=XXX,pass=YYY"
xmount "//192.168.1.75/TV Shows" "CHIMERA, TV Shows" cifs "user=XXX,pass=YYY"

Is anyone else having this problem?

Hello. Background image changing not working for me at all (0.4.1.7). Not the default nor em82's nor my own. I uncomment any BG option in S00Custom, reboot, but no effect. Always brad's BG is shown.
What is the path for my own BG if it is in the root of my USB HDD?
config_tool -c BACKGROUND_IMAGE=/tmp/media/usb/USB1/myBG.jpg? Right? I tried both USB1 and USB2.
May be there's another easy way to change background?
And thanks!

You can password protect your Samba exports in the following way:
Code: [Select]
config_tool -c SMB_NOGUEST=ON
adduser SambaUser -D -H
echo -e 'SomePW\nSomePW' | smbpasswd -c /tmp/smb2.conf -a SambaUser -s

Now you have your shares available to SambaUser with password SomePW

Hi,
unfortunately I have a problem with this.

I'm running just the Minimal FW so i'm not running any apps, deluge or any of those on my LIVE...but my external still won't go to "sleep" or shut off with the Live like it used to pre-3.4.5 min FW....
the whole process of leaving my external on via being connected to the Live (even after powering down the Live with the remote) almost made the external completely malfunction when i reconnected it to the pc... I'm just trying to avoid that again if possible...

Can you add support for Airlink101 AWLL5077 RTL8188SU Wireless USB N adapter in your firmware?  Pre-release 1.02.14 supports it.

I repeat it would not matter if I included the drivers because dmaosd is not looking for them. The driver would sit there ignored and unused. If I included it and you manually brought up the adapter then guess what? dmaosd would still ignore the connection because it did not bring it up itself. So its pointless.

unless you have the source to dmaosd you won't be adding anything additional to it.

Are you trying to mount a directory on your sat receiver, or mount a directory from your sat receiver?

If you actually mean what you wrote, then the NFSD on the WDTV has nothing to do with your problem, since it's a server, not a client, ie. the NFSD can't mount anything, it serves directories, so you can mount them on other devices.

@lubbo: don't think $20 would be sufficient ;) if what you want requires the kernel being recompiled its not going to happen, the kernel partition is signed and encrypted.

@basti68: You're description is still backwards

I'm goin out for the day now, but heres a teaser of whats to come:
Code: [Select]
WDLXTV-Live/G2-0.4.1.8
  * Switched NTP to default OFF (WDLXTV-G2)
  * fixed cifs-interceptor (WDLXTV-Live)
  * CODEPAGE & IOCHARSET are used in mounting for non-english filesystems
  * added YouTube key saver (WDLXTV-Live)
  * USB_POWER_OFF=1 works now
  * added ftp & zip binaries

lots of other small system tweaks contained in those patches.

USB_POWER_OFF is confirmed via multimeter to shut down the bus when the circumstances allow :D

CODEPAGE & IOCHARSET work as long as you don't use ext3-boot (doesn't work on /boot partition)
if someone goes through and selects all the 'additional language support' options in the menu and tells me how they map out onto various iocharset & nls values in /proc/mounts I can make it more automatic. Right now you need to set those variables manually.

YouTube key saver works well and i made an official root.bin to aid in the resetting of keys, so no more flashing back to original.

anyways off to ride for the day...will post later ;D enjoy the wait :P

Hi B-rad. Nice work!
But, you can use this corrected language file for German in the next version?
The language file that was used in WDLXTVLive is not good translated. This (ge.po)-file (http://www.die48.de/stuff/ge.zip) ist better.

What "optware pack"?
Are you sure it's for WDTVLive? I've read that there is an opt--pack for WDTV, but I'm not sure there is one for WDTVLive.
I may be wrong, but you should make sure you have the right files.

Post by: oogabooga on March 06, 2010, 07:05:40 PM
I was having some problems with the NFSD on my WDTV Live.  I have a USB key plugged into the WDLIVE (10.0.1.5) that I'm trying to access on my Mac (10.0.1.3).  I had made the following updates to S00custom-options:
Code: [Select]
##Enable NFSD kernel NFS server (default: OFF)
config_tool -c NFSD=ON

##Enable NFSD auto export mode (default: OFF)
## (requires NFSD_AUTO_DEFAULT)
## (overrides /conf/exports)
config_tool -c NFSD_AUTO=ON

##NFSD auto export mode default setting
config_tool -c NFSD_AUTO_DEFAULT='10.0.1.3(rw,async,no_subtree_check)'
and after a "reboot -f" was able to confirm that the WDTV export was visible by running showmount on the Mac:
Code: [Select]
oogabooga@mac% showmount -e 10.0.1.5
Exports list on 10.0.1.5:
/tmp/media/usb/USB2/3E28-1415       10.0.1.3

However, my attempts to mount the NFS drive on the Mac were met with frustration:
Code: [Select]
oogabooga@mac% mount -o rw -t nfs 10.0.1.5:/tmp/media/usb/USB2/3E28-1415 ~/blah
NFS Portmap: RPC: Program not registered

Turns out that running rpcinfo on the Mac shows that the nfsd is not actually started on the WDTV Live (not sure why)
Code: [Select]
oogabooga@mac% rpcinfo -p 10.0.1.5
    program vers proto   port
    100000    2   tcp    111  portmapper
    100000    2   udp    111  portmapper
    100005    1   udp  32768  mountd
    100005    1   tcp  38136  mountd
    100005    2   udp  32768  mountd
    100005    2   tcp  38136  mountd
    100005    3   udp  32768  mountd
    100005    3   tcp  38136  mountd
    100024    1   udp  32769  status
    100024    1   tcp  53141  status

So, I restart NFSD on the WDTV Live:
Code: [Select]
WDTV% /etc/init.d/S44nfsserver start
Starting NFS Server...
creating NFS state directory: done
starting 4 nfsd kernel threads: done
starting mountd: /usr/sbin/rpc.mountd is already running
1192
done
starting statd: /sbin/rpc.statd is already running
1194
done

and now rpcinfo is showing the nfs server on the WDTV:
Code: [Select]
oogabooga@mac% rpcinfo -p 10.0.1.5     
    program vers proto   port
    100000    2   tcp    111  portmapper
    100000    2   udp    111  portmapper
    100005    1   udp  32768  mountd
    100005    1   tcp  38136  mountd
    100005    2   udp  32768  mountd
    100005    2   tcp  38136  mountd
    100005    3   udp  32768  mountd
    100005    3   tcp  38136  mountd
    100024    1   udp  32769  status
    100024    1   tcp  53141  status
    100003    2   tcp   2049  nfs
    100003    3   tcp   2049  nfs
    100021    1   tcp  42681  nlockmgr
    100021    3   tcp  42681  nlockmgr
    100021    4   tcp  42681  nlockmgr
    100003    2   udp   2049  nfs
    100003    3   udp   2049  nfs
    100021    1   udp  32952  nlockmgr
    100021    3   udp  32952  nlockmgr
    100021    4   udp  32952  nlockmgr

However, mounting still fails.  Turns out that Macs have some special need (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=317044) to have "insecure" as an option for NFS exports so I re-updated S00custom-options:
Code: [Select]
##NFSD auto export mode default setting
config_tool -c NFSD_AUTO_DEFAULT='10.0.1.3(rw,[b]insecure[/b],async,no_subtree_check)'
and now I can mount the USB attached to the WDTVLive on my Mac!
Code: [Select]
mount -o rw -t nfs 10.0.1.5:/tmp/media/usb/USB2/3E28-1415 ~/blah


And now here's the $64000 question - why do I need to restart the nfs daemon on the WDTV?  Why is it not loading properly at boot?

@sweetvn: do you worry about every debug/warning message in /tmp/messages.txt too?

@oogabooga: NFSD requires network connection or it fails. I've moved the init to S94 and included online.delayer, to help accomodate this.

@w_pepper: I'm already using techflaws corrected german translation. Are you saying his translation is not correct?

@DJMetro: WDTV is not binary compatible with WDTV Live.

I know "techflaws" translation in particular not, but in version 0.4.1.7 of your firmware, the translation is partially bad. for example see the options menu. there are french words in the german translation and wrong meaning for some menu items.

Post by: Whoheart on March 07, 2010, 12:27:35 PM
Why is it people say the stick should be FAT32? The live reads NTFS doesn't it?

Also, I would consider this a bug - your milage probably varies:
If i eject a usb stick - then soft poweroff the device (ie press OFF) and then on, the device is still gone - the normal behavior is that it comes back.

Hello to everybody.
I#m trying out the WDLXTV-LIVE Version 0.4.1.7-1 and I'm having big issues with the internet connection of my box.
It appears in my network and I can ssh into it, but it fails when it comes to using the internet connection. Deluge is running fine, but can't download.

When I try route it stucks at
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
192.168.1.0     *               255.255.255.0   U     0      0        0 ra0


and with nslookup google.com it ends at my DNS-Server.

When I manually change the DNS-Server to my routers IP Inslookup works, but I still can't ping.

Has anyone got a solution at hand?

Thanks in advance.

I'm sorta new to all this code stuff so that's was the first debug/warning message I got.  I have no idea about /tmp/messages.txt.  Should I look into it to see the error message?  What is the significant of /tmp/messages.txt?

The original WD german localization has french menu items which I corrected in my version. I'm also pretty sure that apart from a couple of items with missing context, my translation has no wrong meanings. If you think there are, please post them so I can verify this.

@medalofhon0r: it seems I deleted lighttpd when I was attempting to upgrade it :P

@sweetvn: i've hidden those specific warnings now ;) /tmp/messages.txt is the syslog and is where there are a slew of messages, only some of which would be interesting. good terms to grep for are mtSMB, xmount, & watch

@w_pepper: sticking with techflaws, until i've been told otherwise by a few more.

@d3vil: using NTFS filesystem?

@maunsen: ?

Code: [Select]
WDLXTV-Live-0.4.1.8
  * fixed Samba (windows) exported shares & auto exporter
  * added YouTube key saver (WDLXTV-Live)
  * fixed cifs-interceptor (WDLXTV-Live)
  * USB_POWER_OFF=1 works now (attached devices off during standby)
  * CODEPAGE & IOCHARSET are used in mounting for non-english filesystems
  * disabled ETH_xx_ACTION(s), replaced with POWER_xx_ACTION(s)
  * re-included missing lighttpd & enabled lighty-enable-mod
  * included mod_magnet & mod_webdav for lighttd
  * tweaked 10,11,12 item list views
  * included liblua5.1-0 (5.1.4-5)
  * Switched NTP to default OFF (WDLXTV-G2)
  * various script tweaks & bug fixes
  * added ftp & zip binaries

ok, fixed a lot of bugs  ;D

samba & nfs auto exporter works. ntfs/hfs/hfs+/fuse filesystems cannot be exported with NFS though due to kernel limitation

samba exported shares can be password protected using instructions i provide in previous post. I've tested this and confirmed it works.

CODEPAGE & IOCHARSET should take care of issues people were having with foreign drives.

youtube key saver saves your youtube keys and this (http://rapidshare.com/files/359549491/WDTV_LIVE_1.01.24-root.bin.zip) is a root.bin of 1.01.24 to reset your keys with, without flashing ;)

Hub support is better than ever.

USB_POWER_OFF works now! (as long as theres no app.bins/root.bin/osd.bin/deluge/nzbget) -- drives connected through powered hubs will NOT turn off, but will spin down if they follow the command. Any and all drives may be safely removed when the OSD has been suspended if the USB bus has indeed been shut down.

I changed ETH_xx_ACTIONS to POWER_xx_ACTIONS, they make more sense this way and now are executed only when you power off & on via remote your wdtv live. They are not executed on boot, S00custom-options is. If you'd like S00custom-options executed on resume you'll have to execute it. On the contrary, S00xxx are not called by /sbin/resume

uploading now, will post zips as they're upped after one last quick final checkover

Hi SeveQ, be careful with Speedtouch Modems. I have quit some experience with the Speedtouch Modem series and although they are very versatile they can be very nasty. They are not really transparent to IP traffic even in bridge mode. Very often if not explicitely configured (aka the corresponding server/service or ALG must be disabled) they interfere with some protocols (they even broke my access to UPnP).

Thanks. Unfortunately besides the AVM WiFi stick the Speedtouch is the only opportunity I have to get network access to the WDTV. There is no way to hardwire it. So if I want to remove the Speedtouch I have to use the stick. And since I already have the stick available I don't really like the idea of buying a new one.

So how about an AVM WiFi stick? Is it supported somehow?

I've got a minor bug to report (...18): when I try to connect to the WDTV with WinSCP I get a complaint about a missing 'groups' command. Would be great if you could fix that in a later release!

@b-radcc yes, using NTFS.
Previously I was using 0.4.0.0 and (when only running deluge, no unrar, mt-daap etc) I didn't see any of this.
Was there any change between these new versions that could cause this?
Regards

no, but NTFS is a notorious hog and write/IO performance is dismal.

Well, for ppl using Windows, there isn't much of an alternative, if not for anything else, I use it for adding thumbnails, mounted as a network drive..is this possible using other filesystem such as ext3?
Title: Re: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X
Post by: SeveQ on March 08, 2010, 07:12:07 AM
Because CIFS/SMB fights its usage tooth and nail I'm switching everything over to FTP FS. Hence I've got another one:

I can't see an xmount'ed FTP FS (automounted via net.mounts) in the files/folder management in the settings section. Also I can't use Media Library features on it. Choosing "All Videos" from the video section tells me something like "No media found".

However I can see the FTP xmount in the video section choosing file/folder browsing.

Any advice?

PS: I use the German interface. Hence I can't tell wheather my menu item title translations from my memory are correct. I hope you'll recognize them anyway.

Option Menu (playing film)

Audiochannel = Audiokanal (is ok)
Subtitle = Untertitel (is ok)
Zoom In =  Zoomen ("Vergrößern" is better)
Zoom Out = aufziehen ("Verkleinern" is better)
Pan = Bewegen (is ok)
Playmode = Play-Modus ("Wiedergabemodus" is better)
Infobar = Infoleiste (is ok)

so ok?

@b-rad, thanks for the hint, I would not have looked in the s00customer-settings, as I thought it would be a mount option.

What a pity NFS does not honor iocharsettings, so I still can have no Umlauts in the filenames. This is especially sad as now NFS with TCP to the MACOSX Server is so fast, that I can even stream BD Rips with 42Mbps.

Thanks to your firmware the duplicate icon issue is no issue and and using the WDTVLive is a real pleasure.

Playmode = Play-Modus ("Wiedergabemodus" is better)

While I'm pretty sure my translation for zoom is technically correct in this context it might be a little oldfashioned so I'll change it with my next update. While the term "play" has been germanized long ago I'd also go with "Wiedergabe" for the sake of consistency. But what french item are you talking about?

I love the Minimal version of your firmware, @b-rad... It has everything I need and nothing senseless for me.

I use xmount to map CIFS shares at my NAS to lokal directories. In future releases I'd like to see an osd with simplified menu structure, where even my girl friend was able to jump directly from the main menu to the mount points for video/photo/music without diggin' through a obfuscating menu structure. But as I follow this forums, this will need some time due to missing understanding/accessibility of dmaosd...

The german translation by Techflaws is better than the original one, but I agree with w_pepper: some translations are curious (e.g. "Aufziehen" is never mentioned in any translation for "Zoom out" and as I remember, "Aufziehen" is inherited from original WD firmware). I know that it is an expensive work to do all the translation, because the file seems to never end if you begun to work on it. I made german a translation, too, and use it with my osd.bin. But I realized, that there is no personal interest for some features (e.g. Pandora, that doesn't work in Germany) - so the translation for that part may be incoherent.

@ techflaws: (in german...) Sicherlich ist das eine technisch korrekte Übersetzung, aber leute die das benutzen sind auch mit der englischen Oberfläche zufrieden. Ich denke, dass "Vergrößern" und "Verkleinern" umgangssprachlich besser passen. Bezogen auf andere Lokalisierungen bin ich doch ein Verfechter der deutschen Sprache und Denglisch mag ich nicht (Play-Modus vs. Wiedergabemodus).
Ob das nun so von dir oder b-rad übernommen wird liegt ja nicht in meinen Händen. Werte das bitte nur als Vorschlag, nicht als Kritik.

Das französische Wort ist tatsächlich in der aktuellen Version von b-rad nicht mehr vorhanden. Hab die gestern Abend erst geflasht.

@w_pepper: It's not enough to just create a directory /tmp/media/usb/USB1 (for instance) to let the WD TV Live think there is a usb pen connected. And i really don't know how the WD TV Live recognizes a connected usb pen. But maybe you could simply mount your share via xmount and then "mount --bind {mounted_share_dir} /dev/media/usb/USB1/Video your video share? /dev/media/usb/USB1/Video has to be created...

I find it hard to believe that the filesystem is the cause, because it didnt use to happen in  version 0.4.0.0.
I find these processes taking a lot of cpu:

  721     2 root     RW       0  0.0   0 35.6 [sigmblockd]
 3004     1 root     S    74032 37.0   0 21.3 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/deluged -

here's a few seconds after:

 3004     1 root     S    74032 37.0   0 44.4 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/deluged -
 1239  1226 root     S     5232  2.6   0  7.4 DMARender
  928     1 root     S     3648  1.8   0  7.4 /bin/sh /bin/power.monitor


I don't recall deluge taking this much cpu, maybe it was caused by the new version 1.21?

I am confused: I flashed the Minimal firmware version and tried to power off my usb device via USB_POWER_OFF feature, but nothing happend when is sent the WD TV Live to standby. Then I tried manually and this is what happened...

Code: [Select]
# usb.power.off
Deluge enabled, cannot turn off USB bus power!

Oooops! Deluge has to be disabled... But I only have the Minimal firmware w/o Deluge installed ???
Code: [Select]
# config_tool -c DELUGE=OFF
config saved val:key => (DELUGE,OFF)
# usb.power.off
NZBget enabled, cannot turn off USB bus power!

Oooops, same procedure with NZBget...
Code: [Select]
# config_tool -c NZBGET=OFF
config saved val:key => (NZBGET,OFF)
# usb.power.off
No /conf/exports, make one first or set auto mode (NFSD_AUTO & NFSD_AUTO_DEFAULT)
sleeping 3s...

usb pen lights off... From now on I can am able to use "config_tool -c USB_POWER_OFF=1" feature to automatically switch my usb device off in standby!

Hi there,

I've gathered a lot of info before I took off on the journey of upgrading my WD TV Live.
The problem is that my WDTVLive doesn't recognise the new firmware, the screen shows the WD logo and the text "Loading..."

Sounds farmiliar but still no solution.
Anyway, here's what I did.

I have already upgraded my WDTV Live to the original 1.01.24.
Now I downloaded the zip file ''1.01.24_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.8", unpacked it.
Then just copied the two files (wdtvlive.ver and wdtvlive.bin) to my usb stick (size = 500MB, is freshly formatted to FAT32).

Changed the text in the file "wdtvlive.ver"
from VERSION='1.01.24.WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.8'
to VERSION='1.01.25.WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.8'
Offcourse saved the file.

Then pulled out the power cable of the WDTV Live , waited for 10 sec, inserted the usb stick and inserted the cable back in.
Waited for some time and ended in the screen where WD logo shows and text says "Loading.."

Now, to resolve the situation, I tried the following (no success though):
- reformatted the usb stick to FAT
- tried to alter the text to VERSION='1.20.05.WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.8'
- tried to alter the text to VERSION='1.01.25-WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.8'
- tried to alter the text to VERSION='1.01.25_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.8'

If I am doing something wrong here, please bear with me, I just started.
Thanks for your help.

... where WD logo shows and text says "Loading.."

And after that? Do you see the normal menu? What happens if you boot without USB drive? Same effect?

Normally your WD should boot completely so you can navigate in the menu and after a while your WD should show the message, that a new firmware is available.
If you can boot without USB drive, test the following:
Boot the WD without USB drive. After the menu is present, insert the USB drive. Check if you have access to your USB drive.
If you don't have choose another USB drive, as some usb sticks don't work (I also have such a usb stick)
Additionally you can check your usb drive in the PC. After that remove the stick by logging off via the USB icon in the task bar! Now test again if your wd is able to read the usb drive.

In the case you always see the "Loading screen" and not more, I would say you have to reset the WD, as it is not normal!

By the way: I had installed 1.01.24_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.8. After that I made a downgrade to the original version 1.01.24.
After that I wanted to reinstall version 1.01.24_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.8, but the WD couldn't find a new firmware.
So I thought perhaps it is a good idea to install 1.01.24_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.0 which includes a "wdtvlive.fff".
I'm not sure if this was the crucial  factor, but I had no problem to install 1.01.24_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.0. After that I could also install 1.01.24_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.8 without problems. In the meantime I turned back to the old version 0.4.1.0 as I wasn't able to use the built-in nfs and I also couldn't let run the external nfs application (unfs3.app.bin) under 0.4.1.8.

hi...

i recognized a problem when i try to start playing a video file. Normaly the loading-circle starts going round, usually it takes 1-2 seconds until the video starts, but now it doesn't stop and the video is not starting. The only thing i can do then is unplug the WDTV and try it again, usually it works now... this occurs very often now and its a pain to alway have to unplug the device... anyone else has this problem too?

Hi Mike,

After the "Loading.." message, nothing happens, it stays like that for several minutes.
I tried to access the usb stick from the menu. It didn't work, when I insert the stick WD menu freezes.
When I pull it out again, everything is back to normal.
Gues I have to buy a new stick.

By the way, what do you mean by "Additionally you can check your usb drive in the PC." ?
Cause I can use the stick when inserted in my laptop. No problem there, but I dont think that's what you mean.

Hello b-rad. Tell me please, how to change background image on 0.4.1.8 MINIMAL with myown.jpg?
There's
Code: [Select]
# overwrite theme background with user provided one
# only necessary if you use a theme that provides a background
#echo 'mount -o bind /tmp/villa_background_bg.jpg /osd/image/villa_bg.jpg' > /tmp/init.d/S99post-init
in S00Custom, so where exactly I have to put myown.jpg? And have I to rename it to villa_background_bg.jpg?
Will my usb drive power off after that? (I can't see USB Power OFF option in S00Custom of 0.4.1.8 MINIMAL edition).
Thanks in advance.

B-rad,

probably something WD got wrong, but there's a bug in /sbin/reboot on line 7 - the output is redirection to dev/null instead of /dev/null      ;D


PS: Just found out I needed to reload the official 1.02.14 and do a "reset to factory default" to get YouTube to work.  Is this correct?

Bugreport for b-rad.cc

deluge losts its state after reboot, because of incorrect symlinks to saved state dir

/etc/deluge has state dir in it, thus it's been copied via cp -Prf /etc/deluge/* /tmp/deluge , but it is not empty. So rmdir can't remove it. There are two ways to fix this problem. Change rmdir to rm -rf , or change ln -s to  ln -nfs , because ln creates links in the dir, when destination is an exsisting dir and -n will prevent dereferencing.

please note, that only video should mount as noted in /conf/cifs-interceptor:

i'm not sure what's wrong, because it always worked great
could you please check?


i can confirm, that in version 0.4.0.0 everything works as expected
so i had to revert back

b-rad, maybe you will find a source of this issue and fix it in the future
nevertheless, keep up the good work ;)
i'll donate again once cifs-interceptor will work again in new version

Installed 0.4.1.8 Mini - can't see NFS shares with net.mounts & config saved from 0.4.1.0 ... Samba shares are OK ... Could somebody confirms working/non-working NFS?

I had as well NFS shares saved to net.mounts accessible after boot on 0.4.1.0, but after upgrading to 0.4.1.8 they do not get mounted during boot.

I can get them mounted by executing sh /conf/net.mounts or by executing xmount separately from command line for each mount point.

/tmp/messages.txt reports:

Jan  1 02:01:17 WDTVLIVE user.notice xmount: xmount xx.xx.x.xxx:/xx/XXXX XXXX nfs soft,intr FAILED WTF?!?
Jan  1 02:01:26 WDTVLIVE user.notice xmount: xmount xx.xx.x.xxx:/xx/XXXXt XXXX nfs soft,intr FAILED WTF?!?


I have full version: 1.01.24_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.8.zip

I even tried to reset to factory defaults and downgrade to official FW and reset to factory defaults before upgrading to 0.4.1.8 again, but with no help.

Other problem which I had also with 0.4.1 is that the box freezes on every boot for about 5min. During the hang I'm able to log in to the box through ssh and everything seems to work, except for the menus which are not responding. This have to something with the wireless network adapter I'm using, since the hang does not occur when wireless USB adapter is not connected. I have Buffalo Nfiniti Wireless-N Ultra-Compact USB 2.0 W. With official FW there is no such a problem.

Hi,

2 problems with 04.1.8:

1. lighthttpd doesn't start - but your workaround:
Code: [Select]
mkdir -p /tmp/.root/etc/lighttpd/conf-enabled
cp -s /etc/lighttpd/conf-available/05-auth.conf /etc/lighttpd/conf-available/10-fastcgi.conf /etc/lighttpd/conf-available/10-cgi.conf /etc/lighttpd/conf-enabled
works. So waiting for 0.4.1.9 to integrate it.

2. custom modules doesn't load ad boot time. I've 3 modules which are the same and aare t the same place since 0.3.x times - osd theme. custom language and webend.app.bin. Until 0.4.1 everything was OK. I've upgraded to 0.4.1.8 and now only custom language module loads but not osd & webend. :(

I had as well NFS shares saved to net.mounts accessible after boot on 0.4.1.0, but after upgrading to 0.4.1.8 they do not get mounted during boot.

I went to 0.4.7-1 and now the NFS mounts gets automatically mounted on boot. I checked also how official beta 1.02.14 works, and it has the exact same problem with my Buffalo mini wireless USB adapter: UI hangs for 5 minutes during boot. While testing it, I also noticed that SMB mounts does not work with my wireless at all (well now they were visible which hasn't been the case previously, but unusable). My connection must be too slow SMB. With NFS or with Mediatomb I have had no problems with connectivity. I couldn't get subtitles to work with Mediatomb, so I think I need to donate for using WDLXTV  ;)

migube I have the same problem. It hangs since I begin to copy movie via smb. After few minutes it may start copying.
Another problem - USB sign constantly flashes on my box, even while idling. USB drive spin down when I power off the box but start spinning again in 2 sec. What it can be? 0.4.1.8 MINIMAL. No deluge and other stuff. Only background changed through S00Custom

UPDATE After adding
Code: [Select]
config_tool -c DELUGE=OFF
config_tool -c NZBGET=OFF
config_tool -c USB_POWER_OFF=1
to S00Custom my USB drive can spin down. But USB sign on WDTV still flashing always and I have lags browsing videos. So Minimal edition needs to be checked for that bug.

There's a second question: Your new builts are based on 1.01.24 ... so i guess youtube wont work like in .17 anymore? Or does your firmware bybass the "Video restricted ... not available on TV connected devices"-issue ? (and YT-HD-Videos of course)

zoom is 1x, 1.1x, 1.2x, 2, 4, 8, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8

you could probably spend 5 mins and try it for yourself or read some of the update logs...  youtube seems to run fine for me

Ok ... after my heart just stopped for like 20minutes i unplugged the usb-stick, changed the ver-file, redid the process which now went smoothly (new background-image).
The way i understand it i only need to plug the usb-stick with
S00custom-options, ...
in once. The next time i boot i wont need it anymore !? (unless i use the ext3-Version)

BUT ... i tested it for now and still have only these zoom-out-modes: 1/1 , 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 and YT-Videos are still restricted.

I just upgraded the WDTV Live with 0.4.1.8. It worked in one go. However, I can only walk through the menu BUT nothing works.
If I select Youtube/Search, Top Fav or  any other  option , nothing happens. No network shares show up, nada.
Then turned WD off and on again, everything  is  back to normal. Youtube works (but certain content still isnt allowed), shares show up. Strange, isn't it ?

I can assess with just http://ip (http://ip) and receive a page with a wdtv image and requesting a u & p, have tried admin password, user password but nothing so far gets me access to configure.

Any ideas please would be great.

if you have any recent wdlxtv-live running it will boot the root.bin in that zip without any intervention on your part or anything out of the ordinary done.

just put it on a flash stick as the only connected device and plug in your wdtv live.

also forgot about this important setting:

you won't have to reset with factory firmware anymore, i save the youtube keys now which was the whole reason and i provide an official root.bin too. you can stay homebrew all the time and if you use root.bin never flash upgrade.
Title: Does WDLXTV Live 0.4.1.8 support NFS over TCP?
Post by: chazbear on March 14, 2010, 10:05:48 AM
I'm having trouble with videos stalling (freezing) when played from an NFS mount such that I have to press the back button, and wait a bit, to restart the video where it left off.  Then it will play a short while and freeze again.   The player is not completely freezing, just video playback is freezing.  Incidentally, a search of the forum has turned up a few reports of this same symptom.

There are no nfs errors or other relevant messages in messages.txt.

Playback of the same video from a CIFS share works flawlessly..  This leads me to suspect there is a UPD issue on my network or at my Linux server, so thought I would try NFS over TCP to isolate that suspicion. Unfortunately, I am unable to mount -t nfs share mountpoint -o tcp.  In fact, any mount option I try seems to be ignored.  This is true with mount and xmount.

Quote
# umount /tmp/media/usb/Video ; mount -t nfs "192.168.101.101:/media/MediaCollection-A" "/tmp/media/usb/Video" -o ro,proto=tcp ; mount | grep "usb\/Video "
192.168.101.101:/media/MediaCollection-A on /tmp/media/usb/Video type nfs (rw,vers=3,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,soft,intr,proto=udp,timeo=7,retrans=3,sec=sys,addr=192.168.101.101)

Does WDLXTV Live 0.4.1.8  Support NFS over TCP, or am I missing some critical detail?

Post by: b-rad.cc on March 14, 2010, 10:10:06 AM
somewhere in this forum was someone stating your exact situation and after they started mounting nfs tcp it went away. So you can do it and the solution is here somewhere.

make sure you're using the ext3-boot-live i linked to, it has writeable root, therefore you can do whatever you want inside of it. Actual release is only few hours away...oh hey...one thing, a limitation of ext3-boot-live and the paragon NTFS/HFS driver is that it makes the drive containing root.bin read only when root.bin is booted.

so put root.bin on fat or ext2/3

--EDIT--

oh yeh, not sure how everyone will feel about this ;D but i've decided to include lighttpd, php, & perl in wdlxtv-live-minimal. Its required to use YouTube switcher and live365 switcher, and I don't want to leave you guys out.

it will however be disabled by default, so if you reset it'll be off--it might come on though, because I never bothered removing the setting from minimal--its always been 'enabled' just not there, now it'll be there but default disabled.

Are you using the GPL source to modify any binaries, or are all of your mods scripted?

the modules come from wd's gpl source, rest are pulled from up to date sources, taken from debian, or binary patched.

cool thx

is utube meant to work? says nothing is available

are you homebrew virgin? perhaps you didn't have youtube keys? boot this:

by placing root.bin on flash device and booting as only thing connected...

then make sure youtube works, after it works then remove the device and delete root.bin...youtube keys should be saved and everything should work. I suggest you telnet in and just do this though:

wont work
cannot stat '/etc/webend/webend.conf-orig': No such file or directory

i copied it by hand via FTP and the error on the webend still persists. + still havent found how i could use UMSP. (it's set in S00custom-options which is in the same root-dir as root.bin)
sry ... i own the box since 5 days now and i was sure from the beginning that i gonna need your mod. So that's my first steps here :-)

+ telnet seems to accept the login root without passwort. But via ssh it asks for a passwort
(same goes for FTP) ... it's my first attempt to connect via telnet/ssh/ftp

//EDIT
Ok .. .got a login with this help:
Quote
If you can connect to WDTV over TELNET first type
"passwd -d root"
Then type
"passwd"
WDTV will ask you for the new password. Enter your new password twice. It must have set the SSH password too.

I've tried to no avail to find how mtSMB (cifs-interceptor) is called, i.e. what program or script runs the mtSMB script.   I understand that through some mechanism mtSMB is called when attempting to mount a CIFS share via the OSD, but I can't seem to find any reference to mtSMB on the file system, nor can if find any symbolic link to mtSMB.

smbtree is what does the detection and mounting, smbtree calls mtSMB instead of mount. you'll see if you look.

Ahh..   That hint was helpful.  Actually I was grepping everything starting at / of the wdtvlive.bin mounted on my Linux desktop.  However, the binaries in the cramfs were failing to open with an I/O error, and I was redirecting stderr to null.  Doh!   I mounted the ext3-boot firmware and sure enough...there 'tis.  Thanks for the hint.

This brings me back to my earlier question.  Since it appears that you've modified and recompiled some of the GPL source (e.g. smbtree.c), can we get access to the revised source and/or patches?

like i said, there is binary patching. all i did was patch the binary. similar is done all over the place to divert elsewhere / add extra info / remove stuff / etc.

you can diff hexdump -C outputs to see binary differences

Got it.  Thanks.  You've been very helpful.  Thanks for all the hard work you do on this project.

@B-rad : with ur fw it's possibile to set the Menu to fill all the screen of a full-hd tv ? Having a 1920x1080 resolution could be a great idea to use all the usefull display.

Thanks

no clue what you mean X

With the original fw of wdtv-live and my Samsung LCD 40" Full-HD, the Menu, especially in the video section or file manger section, is not at full screen but just apart on the display...the resolution is lower then the best one (1920x1080).

EDIT :

I mean this :
(http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/6570/15032010135.th.jpg) (http://img163.imageshack.us/i/15032010135.jpg/)
the size of the area of the "video menu" is not the highest possible area, so i cannot see all the full title of a video file.

cd.mount /dev/$MDEV
in /etc/hotplug/cd.manager to avoid that.

see its weird cuz double mounts never happened with my drive--but now its dead :'(
I'll remove it next time around since UMSP mounts the drive itself...or at least investigate a bit further.

Hey b-rad.


Seems like Optical Manager could not play DVD's with udf file system while iso9660 play fine. Udf DVD's could be played from Local Drives/Folder, but not from Optical Manager/Browse Optical Drive. It lists all the vob files in the directory, but any attempt to play them ends with  "The folder is empty" message.

aw frack, hardcoded locations to iwpriv & iwconfig in dmaosd and i moved them to /sbin to mirror debian ... PATH exists for a reason, the developers don't seem to know why ::)

adding " config_tool -c YOUTUBE_QUALITY=1080P " into the s-options didn't do anything on a power cycle so i sent the command via telnet and it worked but it seems for anything thats "non-HD" on youtube it stretches the video and makes it pretty pixelated :o

just to be sure - i've 0.4.1.7-1 flashed and uses ext3-0.4.1.9-preview yesterday which worked fine.
So now ... i can flash 0.4.1.9 direct into the box or do i have to revert to official 1.01.24 first and then your 0.4.1.9 ?

Can't find UMSP in webfrontend, have used the config_tool -c UMSP=ON with no results.

Also can't go to http://mywdtvlive/umsp/ (http://mywdtvlive/umsp/)

Maybe I should revert back to original firmware then flash again?

ok, already been pointed out here you have youtubeHD uncommented...but as well, you have two easynews switchers enabled? How do you plan on using both at once with only one youtube interface? Its one or the other.

i'm watching youtube HD right now, it does work (at least for me)

Code: [Select]
cat /tmp/messages.txt | grep watch
gets you any messages that might be popping up

I mean this

well its already that way and always has been. it doesnt matter what resolution you're at.

i haven't touched the file manager screen though, because I never use it.
If someone else wants to maximize the screen real estate on that page they can feel free to send me their modified version for future inclusion.

To modify the file manager screen to maximize it, I've to find & change the correct xml file, like an OSD-MOD ?

Thanks

I upgraded to 4.1.9 last night and thought I'd share some of my issues to help some of the newer people here.

I reset the 4.1.0 box to factory defaults in the settings menu and unplugged my usb with media/net.mounts/s00custom files.

I plugged in usb with only 4.1.9 firmware

Firmware updated but with the following issues:

Youtube shows "No content available" for all categories.
Device name shows "WDTVLIVE-EAxxxx" instead of previous "WDTVLIVE"
UMSP server not starting and not available from webend page.

In S00custom file I enabled Youtube/720P/UMSP as mentioned by B-rad and rebooted with same results  :-\

Installed original firmware 1.01.24 - Youtube still no content
Reset to factory defaults in menu - Youtube content back!!  :)  (Device name also back to normal)

Re-installed 4.1.9 and S00custom file with YoutubeHD/UMSP enabled - Youtube works with 720P enabled!  :D

Finally, added
Code: [Select]
config_tool -c LIGHTTPD=ONto the s00custom file and re-booted....Now UMSP works and is available from webend.  ;D

added my net.mount file and my usb with media and everything is good again.

Not sure why lighttpd wasn't starting for me but hopefully this will help others with problems so they don't have as many steps as me.

Thanks again B-rad for all your work!!

the file is /osd/server3_fileop.xml i think

use ext3-boot-live and you can just telnet in and modify the file live. Once you have something you're happy with forward it to me :)

After the release of the latest custom firmware i liked the futures so much that i installed over the official firmware (version 0.4.1.9). Unfortunately is my wireless connection not working. After reading the last posts i read that there is a bug with the wireless usb-stick and you will fix it today. I'm looking forward to the new release so i can use my wdtv live again.

Keep up the good work!!

Thanx vango44, you just saved my life...  ;)
Allready rolled back to 3, cause off this. Just couldn't get it to work, and UMSP (shoutcast) had just become one of my favorite items!! Gonna try it your way now...
Just one more stupid question (god, hate being an newbie at this, allready know this is a dumb one...  ;D )
In my S00-file i've  got this
##enable YouTube Switcher
##YouTubeHD:
config_tool -c YOUTUBE_SWITCHER=youtubeHD
##EasyNews XViD proxy:
#config_tool -c YOUTUBE_SWITCHER=easynews
##Disable YouTube Switcher:
#config_tool -c YOUTUBE_SWITCHER=''

so, found this one; config_tool -c YOUTUBE_SWITCHER=youtubeHD

But where do i add these:
config_tool -c UMSP=ON
config_tool -c YOUTUBE_QUALITY=720P
config_tool -c LIVE365_SWITCHER=shoutcast
-edit- just dropping them somewhere just didn't seem to do the trick  :D
Thanx in advance, so sorry! ;)

Dear b-rad.cc, zoster, rezmus, pibos ,Mr_Miyagi,

guys really really GREAT WORK! Such a combination of functionality like WDLXTV Live 0.4.1.9 has!!! WOW!
After some time to set it up all, all features fully working! UMSP is a piece of beauty! :)

Thanks a lot for that hard work!
Martin

P.S. All the honor is going also to themers guys, lilibabe, PsychoTHC .. thanks guys!

buzzie,

I haven't tried switching Live365 yet.
After I got basic YT functionality back, I suspect all the trouble with UMSP was due to Lighttpd not running for some reason.
I don't know if it matters where you put the commands; just un-comment them (remove #) or add lines where it makes sense.
The command to enable lighttpd (which I added) seemed to make all the difference for me.

My s00custom file is below if it helps.

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh
##
## in this file you can enter commands that will be executed with the init.d scripts
## typos / syntax errors will prevent the osd from booting
## this file is only executed if it is at the root of an attached device at boot
##
## this file is executed when the wdtv starts/boots up AND when /usr/sbin/resume is called
## so operations placed here should not be adversely affected by multiple execution
## the above applies if you utilize /conf/S00user-script as well
##
## several examples are provided below, uncomment (delete #) them to use
##
## config_tool commands only need to be executed _once_ then they can be re-commented
##

## change background image between 3 stock options

I've tried putting in using Word, maybe that's it.
Otherwise i'll try through puTTy, but don't have much expierence with that.There's a first time for everything!
Switching 365 to shoutcast seems to be exactly what i'm looking for, so can't wait for that!!

Youtube seems to play more Videos now than before (or is it a coincidence?).

Unfortunatly none of my network shares are shown anymore (not even the computer they're on).
What about the apple-trailers? How to view them ? (** includes Revision3, Shoutcast, Apple Trailers, BBC podcasts...)

I'm new here and wanted to say thank you! Your custom firmware is awesome!

Sadly, I have the same issue the as described below

@0.1.4.9 (full version, default S00custom-options)

Something's wrong with the wifi stick. Detects the network, but can't get an IP (manual or automatic).

Confirm - worked OK in 0.4.1.8 ...

My wlan still worked with 0.4.1.8. I even rolled back to the official firmware 1.01.24, where wlan worked again flawlessly. After resetting to factory and reflashing 0.4.1.9 I couldnt retrieve an ip adress anymore. I got a D-Link DWA-140 stick.

carroto,

It's already been mentioned in here that the wifi is temporarily broken in .4.1.9

I would guess there will be new version in the next few days that fixes it again.

Shoutcast is also available from the UMSP server. Just not with the nicer Live365 UI unless you enable it.

How do i get on the UMSP-Server? Cant access it via Web-Interface ... or at least i dont know how

The way i understand it: IF lighttpd wouldnt be running i wont see a webinterface on http://ip.of.wd.box/ (http://ip.of.wd.box/)
Correct me if i'm wrong. Since i get the site and can use cpu-usage, deluge, telnet, remote on that ... (but dont see umsp anywhere) i dont know what else could be wrong.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the great work, I have got my WD TV LIVE this weekend only because this firmware exists, no fun with the original one.

I have the latest version on it, 0.4.1.9 and I just realized I cannot see .sub external subtitles in any video... is this a known problem? I re-flashed with 0.4.1.8 and then with original WD  :'( version and still no .sub. Please help. I have been looking for a few hows for a solution on the forum but I cannot find anything.

Thanks a lot.

robertbr, google is your friend.  ;)

I don't use subtitles so not sure.
One thing that comes up a lot is that some things that work from an attached usb don't work from a server and/or network share.
Try playing from an attached usb drive 1st.

Then...see the google link below that I found in less than a minute.

sorry for the delay folks, I'm having problems with config_tool. It wasnt written with concurrency handling, and its hits deadlock when multiple commands overlap--which causes amongst over issues the OSD not loading. I'm trying to decide on the easiest workaround so that I don't A) have to code my own system from scratch and B) go through and find the millions of statements in the code relying on config_tool. I'll probably just make a wrapper and do a bit of producer-consumer'izing on the commands.

LoL ... LGHTTPD was def. running, but switching it on (even it was already on) made the trick.

The only thing i now need to fulfil all of my dreams is a zoom-out-mode like 0.95 or 0.90 (dont know exactly), because on my CRT there movies are cut at the left and right side.

first of all, Thanks for all this work, thanks! and another thing, pardon my English, or rather, the English of Google  ::).

One question, is it possible to add a gigabit network card to WD TV Live with this mod? one that would be compatible with the Gen 2 WDTV. I guess I would have to do something more on the device, to take the new card instead of the standard. I say this to give a little more speed network.

Thank you for really nice improvements. Especially UMSP Media Server and finally a access to iTunes trailers. I have tried it and it works like a charm. I have also compared web version and this. Nothing is missing. I can finally remove QuickTime player from my computer:-).
Also, I have one question, where I can find UMSP bin folder? I want to add this line to a script like zoster suggests:
To permanently send this broadcast add the following to "/conf/S00user-script":
Code:
/var/umsp/bin/nc-send-ssdp-loop.sh &
The script has to continue to run in the background or UMSP will disappear.

I cannot find it... Thank you very much for your hard work, b-rad.

Hi!

I upgraded a few days ago from 0.3.2 to 0.4.1.7 (minimal) and the player freezes after the first reboot. Problem consists with 0.4.1.8 and 0.4.1.9

I boots fine but freezes on the first regular GUI screen (Video, Photo and so on). It works fine when the network cable is disconnected.

Going back to 0.3.2 works. Any hint what might cause this problem?

My net.mounts looks like this:

xmount //192.168.1.101/Filme Filme cifs user=wdtv,pass=wdtv
xmount //192.168.1.101/Zeichentrick Zeichentrick cifs user=wdtv,pass=wdtv

xmount //192.168.1.101/Aktuell Aktuell cifs user=wdtv,pass=wdtv

The player is connected via a gigabit switch to a QNAP NAS.

I've a question. I read it's possible to use the moviesheets, but then I have to use b-rad's firmware. However, at this moment I run the lastest beta on my media player because subtitle within iso's and m2ts files are support.
Are subtitles within iso's and m2ts files also supported in the lastest fw of b-rad?

Thnx,

Thanx, allready had shoutcast running through umsp...
Tried it again, but no luck. Background has changed, so S00-options have been loaded, but no umsp. And the YT-keys have been deleted also, again..  >:(
Have to go back to the original FW for YT, after that i think i better wait for the next version. Hopefully there will be a new S00-file included (for dummies like me..  ::))

It's enough to activate lighhttpd in S00custom-options: config_tool -c LIGHTTPD=On
Check after with telnet:  grep LIGHTTPD /conf/config
Result: LIGHTTPD='On'

I checked the sbin directory, but all files in my WD live are owned by root. I also think a firmware update should always do the trick, so is there something not working or do you just assume you deleted files which are back already after the upgrade?

I checked the sbin directory, but all files in my WD live are owned by root. I also think a firmware update should always do the trick, so is there something not working or do you just assume you deleted files which are back already after the upgrade?
Thank you for checking /sbin directory.
I'm just worried about it, but all seems still working.
(sbin directory contains 88 files now - right?)

And BTW is there something wrong with SMB? It stopped receiving stuff larger than 2.6gb for some reason.. Though I password protected it.. It goes in timeout or something, since Win7 does not seem to start the copy, but actual file appers on WDTV and seem to have the proper size, but is not readable.

Even better, it appears to be growing in size (copying) even after the timeout and with copy window closed... and appears to recieve full file, but it's not readable. (I guess it's full of "0" since Win does not seem to send anything)

P.S. Ftp transfer works fine.

I'm having similar problems with SMB on the WD and high bitrate (+20Mbps) mkv files shared on Windows 7 Server (Windows 2008 Server). Basically, SMB 1.0 on the WD can't handle high bitrate transfers. The WD plays any lower bit rate files with no problems.

Windows 2008 & 7 comes with SMB 2.0 & SMB 3.0 which can handle much higher bitrate transfers. I can easily get 50% network utilization on a 2Gbps connection with a windows file copy between Windows 2008 & 7.

I can confirm higher network utilization when streaming with FTP or HTPP or UPnP/DLNA to the WD.

Hopefully, the 'Added Windows 7 support' & 'Fixed various issues with Samba connection ' in 1.02.14 (http://www.wdc.com/wdtvlive_prerelease/ (http://www.wdc.com/wdtvlive_prerelease/)) improves SMB on the WD.

My guess is that the "fix various issues with samba connection" doesn't mean a switch protocols but instead in connecting and mounting remote devices.  I could be wrong but they are limited by what samba is capable if doing.
 
I have done some fairly extensive bandwidth tests on the WD TV Live using various 802.11N 2.4Ghz and 5.8Ghz adapters and the varying protocols (SMBfs, FTPfs, SSHfs (can't get NFS mounting to work right now though))
and while SMB and mounting via SMBfs is slow, it isn't the slowest.  SSHfs is even slower: almost half speed of FTP or NFS!  So just be thankful you aren't forced to use it.

Copying to /dev/null from a Samba network share:
I was able to get a reliable average of 23.5416Mb/sec using SMB. 
Using FTP protocol and mounting via FTPfs I see my max speed at 34.4014Mb/sec with an avg of 30.3276Mb/sec
Using SSHfs to transfer over SSH protocol it was a disappointing avg of 14.4934Mb/sec

So while not much faster than your +20Mbps number you mention, my 23.5Mb/sec is a bit better and helps during the low datarate peaks.  The 30.2Mb/sec is great though as my highest bitrate BD rip is only ~28Mbps and so it no longer stutters when I use a FTPfs mount.

I wish we had more memory for a bigger cache though, faster IO for faster transfers, faster cpu for lots of reasons...
Hmm, I always want more. ;)

Most pathetic attempt to get Megacrupload points I 've seen...

I can imagine the reason for the megaupload share is the temporary availability of the file on the WD site. This way everybody can download it even when WD drops the file.

I just enabled it. It never worked as it is supposed. The only thing that actually worked is that when a download is finished and you see process running (by typing ps), you can see that the extractor is trying to unrar but you never get the extracted file.

That was the situation on previous versions. Did anybody try it with success on the last version?

B-rad (and others): found a small buggie in the latest FW

my WD live is configured in DHCP (from the beginning when I joined this custom-FW project), but with the latest FW, at each reboot a new IP address is obtained. My symptoms were the same as the post above: http was unavailable, putty couldn't disconnect etc - but checking my DHCPD on my router revealed the issue. At each reboot, the live drops the address for an unknown reason and asks a new lease. Rebooting my router did not fix the issue, I've already used 20+ addresses now whilst debugging  ::) Time to switch to a Fixed IP ?  :-*

But all rest is running splendid! Keep up the good work!

One of fist things about a network resource that should works as server is that this unit are setup as static IP (not DHCP).

The server and the network printer in a network have always a static IP.

Only the clients (that doesn't works a s fixed resource) can have a dynamic IP.
Title: Re: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X
Post by: timeey on March 19, 2010, 01:56:53 AM
To fix that, you can add static leases for special MAC/hostnames. Then the device should get always the same IP (over DHCP).

@b-rad
Absolutly great work. Without your firmware, i wouldnt keep the wdtv live anymore. NFS share with 90-95mbit -> absolutly smooth blu-ray streaming (impossible with samba/cifs with official firmware, but with upnp mediaserver but that sucks), remote access, ability for so many apps, integreated UMSP (big thanks to zoster, too, 720p/1080p appletrailers works really nice for me without stutter or something like that), got youtube hd back etc pp. Big thanks, man.

Hi B-rad,

can you please remove the new nfsd in the next version?
I hope that I'm not the only one here who needs a nfs server which supports ntfs file systems.

Or perhaps you are able to find a way to implement the unfs3.app.bin from Taganaka instead of the kernel-nfs?
Or please check if it is really impossible to compile a kernel version for the WDTV that supports ntfs. Via google I could find a lot of linux threads where people spoke about nfs kernel versions and how to implement ntfs support. So I hope you find the time to check this.

Thank you in advance.

Maybe that's normal?

Anyways, When i go to install any kind of APP, Say MSheetLIVE or even an OSD mod, No .APP Or .Bin what ever the extensions are called are working, Do you know what could be causing this?

If the version of boot is teh same the version installed you should edited the .ver file and changed it with a higher version.

The source of my deadlock problem is definitely config_tool, like I intially feared.

This version will have been worth the wait

b-rad, What about my question you missed / skipped on the last page? Unlike some I "Have" researched and "Searched" and Asked people through PM so I don't clutter up the forum, But I can' find anything on why no App / Bins work on your latest firmware.

I've tried using harddrive, 2 usb storage pen things, and Nothing's working.

And yeah I do see your logo come up on every start with the different background.

Thanks.

hmm wow i dont get any  of that im sorry... btw am i suppose to see apple trailers somewhere or no ? i dont, maybe its not installed properly.

i went from out of shop stock firmware too urs if that helps mate !
Title: Re: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X
Post by: vango44 on March 19, 2010, 08:27:11 PM
Josheh,

Most common reason for app.bins not loading properly for me is the USB drive you are using.

Try connecting a small FAT32 formatted usb stick with just 1 app.bin or osd.bin file that is easy to quickly verify. (osd.bin is good for this)
It must be single partition fat32

Apple trailers are found in the media servers/ UMSP that b-rads firmware adds.

If it's not there, check the S00.custom file and add
Code: [Select]
config_tool -c LIGHTTPD=ON
and

Code: [Select]
config_tool -c UMSP=ON
If they are missing.

All of this is in this thread. I had the same problems.

Just read the last pages...

grep YOUTUBE /conf/config

Flash back to official firmware, reset the unit, try youtube if it works, then flash b-rad's firmware and be happy with youtube (HD). I had the same problem and this tryout worked for me (as it is described here).

I love the firmware. Thank you.
I would like to get the easynews feature to work, but I haven't had any luck. (Yes, I have an easynews account.)
Is there anything I need to do other than:

config_tool -c YOUTUBE_SWITCHER=easynews

I've been reading/searching the forum.  I apologize if there is an obvious answer that I haven't found.

EDIT: Now working for me.
Found my answer in the easynews.php file:

<?php
/*
EasyNews WDTV Live Proxy

0.0.4.1
 * removed preview thumbs to make usable for general release

0.0.4 - b-rad.cc tweaks
 * added EASYNEWS_USER and EASYNEWS_PASSWORD parsing from /conf/config
 * added EASYNEWS_DEFAULT_GROUPS to /conf/config
 * added preview thumbs (slow as hell - need faster fix)
 * filled in Description/From/Added/Category fields
 * sort by ascending title, then descending date

--todo:
 * related results returning same page of search results item came from (?)
 * quicker thumbnail proxy
 * fix buggy youtube-thumbnail failure items
 * add group search shortcuts

0.0.3 - rezmus initial release

I think you have to use a OSD MOD to change the screensaver:
eg. http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=4635.0 (http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=4635.0)

No, you don't need an OSD mod to change it.  Just put any file on your memory stick/HD and name it screen_saver.png and it will use that instead.

Cool software...

After a weekend playing with the SW I got youtubeHD, apple trailers and shoutcast on my WDTV Live.
Still trying to get the filesystem writeable using ext3; installing wdxtv-Live-EXT3 FW f**k$d up my youtube by overwriting my settings; had to go back to official firmware, restore settings and go back to WDXTV.
Still 2 things to do
1)- use ext3 patch on top pf my WDXLTV without having all my presets overwritten
2)- configure easynews. This seems like an awesome addition to me :)

Anybody have any tips for me?

I cant seem to mount more than one drive through the configuration in net.mounts.

This one mounts without problems:
xmount "//192.168.1.75/Movies" "CHIMERA, Movies" cifs "user=XXX,pass=YYY"

These however do not mount:
xmount "//192.168.1.75/Downloads" "!CHIMERA, Downloads" cifs "user=XXX,pass=YYY"

Brad,  I upgraded this to WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.9. and copied the code below into net.mounts.  The problem is that only Movies and Music appear under Video>All Folders.

 1410 root     84432 S    MediaLogic AV MSGL_FATAL

 1414 root      3648 S    /bin/sh /bin/dmaosd.sh
 
two line with "FATAL". I don`t have any idea what hapend .
also my player have some problem with external HDD, but i think it is the same problem. I attached process page if some can help me.

This does not indicate a problem.  Anything that shows in 'ps' is a command or command-line option.  So the MSGL_FATAL is a parameter passed to MediaLogic binary.

Mine shows the exact same thing and is working perfectly.

I hope not to bother, but looking for any error because after I upgraded to firmware 0.4.1.9 wd player's not working correctly with HDD ext WD 1TB. Files containing movies (MKV, MP4) come suddenly to 0 bytes. I lost many films trying to transfer on my XP PC lan conected, not to lose everything.
I created an ext3 partition. and have transferred movies under Ubuntu 9.1. and all this because the player does not work with NTFS as to B-rad 0.4.1.0. SMB or NFSD probably not work correctly. I do not know what to do.

Thank you, for any idea.

Post by: vango44 on March 22, 2010, 01:24:15 PM
Lots of problems can be avoided if you only use the large NTFS drive for media and keep a separate fat32 formatted small drive(under 32GB) to load firmware, config files.

After you load the S00.custom file from the fat32 drive with the proper switches you want, you can disconnect it if you want.

If you use net.mount file, I find it works from my large NTFS drive with all my media.

Quick question:

I'm using b-rad's FW (duh) and love it to bits, but I get lost when it comes to the add-ons. b-rad lists what extras are loaded with his FW (like a torrent app), but in some cases, I am at a complete loss to figure out if I want to enable the add-on or not.

So...

Is there a list somewhere of the add-ons present in b-rad's FW and (more importantly) what they do and why I might want them? (for example, why would I want to point the YouTube client to easynews or shoutcast? what are they? Yeah, noobie, I know)

And is there a list somewhere of any extras that can be added to the FW? Again, with explanations of what they are for?

Thanks.

Here is another noob...  ;D
My tip; start by reading/searching the forum. There you can find a complete wd-tv live homebrew database! If you want to know more about a certain add-on or don't know the meaning of it, find the related topic and/or google your *ss off...  ::)

Well, that's how i started! I still haven't got everything working and still don't understand everything completely (linux-newbie), but i have the main part running by now and learning a bit more every day...

If anyone have a clear understanding of #mount, net.mount, mount, cifs interceptor, etc... and would write up an explanation in newbie term I would appreciated very much, heck, I'll even pay for your time to write it up.  I have done alotttttttt and I mean lots of reading on these command but I don't have a clearly understanding of the difference, I have a vague idea of what they are but not 100% clear. 
I have tried different command on my live but I"m not sure when it's working or not and therefore I can't really tell the difference.

Newbie!

i too am looking for as much info as possible on mounting, specifically under win7, using the nfs protocol.

Im seeing 3 settings in S00-option related to NFSD

Code: [Select]
##Enable NFSD kernel NFS server (default: OFF)
config_tool -c NFSD=ON

##Enable NFSD auto export mode (default: OFF)
## (requires NFSD_AUTO_DEFAULT)
## (overrides /conf/exports)
config_tool -c NFSD_AUTO=ON

##NFSD auto export mode default setting
config_tool -c NFSD_AUTO_DEFAULT='xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx(rw,async,no_subtree_check) xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx(rw,async,no_subtree_check)'

now 1st main question involves the 2nd two of the commands.

Enable NFSD auto export mode  im assuming this one auto exports the locally attached storage to NFS, readying it to be mounted on my PC for filesharing.  Is this a correct assumption?

2nd, i see that the Enable NFSD auto export mode requires use of the NFSD_AUTO_DEFAULT command.  what is the correct ip addys to be inserting in there, is that the range of local ips allowed to connect to the NFS auto exported?

@vColumn: yes, auto export automatically exports your local storage.  the NFSD_auto_DEFAULT options are part of the NFS sharing protocol options.  HINT: /etc/exports format.  This isn't a quiz or a challenge, more of a "If you can't figure this out, you shouldn't be using it".  You can find out more about the options for /etc/exports via google and apply that concept to setting the NFSD_AUTO_DEFAULT. 

For anyone, if this is over your head, give up and just stay with the normal SMB auto shares that are created.  It works fine and just works.  Be happy with that. 

Please do not ask everyone to help with your individual situation.  It really does get tiring after the 100th time.  I alone have helped at least a half dozen people through PM and posts in the past 3 days on how to translate their IP address and sharename into an xmount command.  It isn't rocket science and is very straight forward.  Please please please give it a try first and read a bit before posting.  I promise there have been others with your same problem that is in a post and you just need to think a tiny bit and it will come. 

I understand it is daunting to see all this information and try to absorb it but all these extremely basic questions do detract from more interesting stuff that people are working on like...moviesheets!

Been lurking on here and using b-rad's firmware for the last few months. Just set up an account to give my thanks to b-rad for such amazing firmware. Thanks go out to the developers of the homebrew apps also. I have only now telnet'ed in and ran:
config_tool -c LIGHTTPD=ON
config_tool -c UMSP=ON

Reboot and checked the Media Server....  F@#k me!! This blew me away. What can the WD Live NOT do!!!
With B-rad's firmware and various apps this makes the stock firmware look like a croc of sh!t  :D

Nice one b-rad, keep up the good work!  ;)

Hi B-rad,

Is there a possibility to include DownloadDaemon in next FW release (i saw your replay in DD topic)  
It's working great for me in this 0.9-1 version

I,ve added some changes to index.php so it includes DD but it's lost at first reboot.
Also i,ve added some simple authentication (sent password is not encrypted) for webfrontend so it's little bit harder to get to "reboot WDTV" link  :D
this is also lost on power-cycle

edit: my solution for that is to include additional lines in S00custom-options so it restores index's and css from usb :)   - it does not work :(

please consider lighthttp authentication for web frontend as new feature in next release if possible

I am putting eiri.conf.txt in the root of a fat32 usb and power cycle. Does not work. FTP'd to the WDTV live, I can't see EIRI loaded anywhere. I can find though eiri.conf in /etc but no eiri folder. Seems like eiri is not loaded.

It used to work as a standalone app. Now it doesn't though. I also tried "telnet <wdtv IP> 14247" so I can get remote codes and it gives me an error
"connecting to 10.0.0.20...Could not open connection to the host.Connect failed". That used to work too.

What should I check next?

Looking at /tmp/init.d/S10eiri, you need a key EIRI='ON' at /conf/config. Not having a eiri.conf at /conf or /tmp (probably also the usb root) will make a /tmp/eiri.conf file, but this last one being empty. Could be that with an empty conf, the program exits.

To sum up, check your /conf/config (config_tool -c EIRI=ON) and place a eiri.conf (without a .txt extension) and puit it on a usb or at /conf. That should do it

Edit: I have seen no conf file is needed to wake up the telnet server, just the EIRI=ON key.

Thats strange, chipset is the same, they have different IDs. See here: http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/WLAN/Karten/Linksys (http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/WLAN/Karten/Linksys)

Is it possible to show mounts (via xmount in net.mounts -> nfs) in the menu without a connected USB device?

I've copied the net.mounts and S00custom-options to /conf and have no usb device connected to the wdtv live because i'm only streaming files. But without an usb device there is no USB1 or USB2 folder in /tmp/media/usb/ and so it is not possible to use the mount via OSD -> no local devices menu entry. I tried to make a USB1 folder (mkdir /tmp/media/usb/USB1 in net.mounts before xmount-command). The mount then shows also in /tmp/media/usb/USB1/xxx but again no menu entry.

@b-rad: is this possible? :)

well, just connect to the box, in my case via ssh (would be the same over telnet or downloading via ftp) and just read the scripts, one of the first lines verifies if theres such key at /conf/config, so the script will exit if theres no such key with a ON value.

It is located in /usr/bin and is called bandwidth_test.  For reasons I won't get into right now, you have to run it as:
sh /usr/bin/bandwidth_test <file_to_benchmark_speed>

Code: [Select]
# sh /usr/local/bin/bandwidth_test
Script to test bandwidth of a network file transfer.
This script copies a file from a remotely mounted location to /dev/null and times the action.

  Usage: bandwidth_test <file_to_test_transfer_speeds>
         bandwidth_test '/tmp/media/usb/NFS_Mount/Batman.mkv'

So for instance, if you wanted to test your memory stick and it was mounted as /tmp/media/usb/USB1/<whatever> and the file was called Movie.avi then the syntax to see how fast you can read from the USB stick would be:
Code: [Select]
sh /usr/local/bin/bandwidth_test /tmp/media/usb/USB1/<whatever>/Movie.aviIf you wanted to test your xmount SMB link read speed then it would be:
Code: [Select]
sh /usr/local/bin/bandwidth_test /tmp/media/usb/SMB_Mount_Point/Some_File.extIf you wanted to test your xmount NFS link read speed then it would be:
Code: [Select]
sh /usr/local/bin/bandwidth_test /tmp/media/usb/NFS_Mount_Point/Some_File.ext
You will get output similar to the screenshots posted in this thread  (http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=5393.0)and you can compare and report your findings.

If you don't understand this, then this is not for you.

Is it possible to show mounts (via xmount in net.mounts -> nfs) in the menu without a connected USB device?

I've copied the net.mounts and S00custom-options to /conf and have no usb device connected to the wdtv live because i'm only streaming files. But without an usb device there is no USB1 or USB2 folder in /tmp/media/usb/ and so it is not possible to use the mount via OSD -> no local devices menu entry. I tried to make a USB1 folder (mkdir /tmp/media/usb/USB1 in net.mounts before xmount-command). The mount then shows also in /tmp/media/usb/USB1/xxx but again no menu entry.

@b-rad: is this possible? :)

??

I dont want to waste a usb stick because i dont need it. Would be nice if there is a solution for that "problem".

edit:
Ok, I see it's possible with cifs-interceptor. Will try this later.

Hi guys,
I succesfully installed latest 0.4.1.9.4
and now my biffalo mini wi-fi key works again!

Amazing, thanks b-rad.

I also set up access to my nfs server, and it works with auto mount if I have a fat32 key inserted.
I also use an external cd player and it works by enabling UMSP.
- eject now works but has still problems: it ejects but tray does auto close and does not remain open.
- when it closes it does not detect the cd/dvd
- to reach the dvd folder it's a mess: you have to navigate too much folders... I would like to modify the umsp config but now it is read only...
Is there a way to change it without using EXT LIVE?

But this are minor fixes... GREAT JOB!

I wonder what may be wrong then. My NFS shares auto-mounted on first boot after I flashed to -4.
I didn't even have a net.mounts file on my usb-stick. It had saved the old file in /tmp/conf and used that (I assume!).

I dunno know, what's a reason ... Also use old one /tmp/conf/net.mounts, which worked in 0.4.1.6(or 7), don't remember exact version ...
Also use stick with OSDMod as before ...

I had several problems with version 4.1.9 and later with 4.1.9-4. Before I could not see youtube despite various reset and restore the original firmware with the factory settings, then without a reason they have reset all passwords including root, but with this update I also restored youtube. Now after installing the latest version of Deluge has gone after a reboot then I can not anymore and tells me wrong password. Another problem is that I have a USB disk ext3 but bin applications will not run after restart the device. Last issue date-time  never gets updated automatically, following my settings:
# Grep NTP / conf / config
NTP = 'ON'
NTPSERVER = 'pool.ntp.org'
NTP_DELAY = '0 '
# grep TIMEZONE /conf/config
TIMEZONE='CET1CEST'

Firstly, there is an erroneous blank line at the top of S00custom-options. Delete the blank line to make a valid script. Dunno how it got there, but its been there for a while.

nextly, /conf is only ever wiped on catastrophic failure of the partition. What is the contents of your /conf? Do you store lots of stuff in there?

I noticed that while I was trying to get config_tool to behave properly and even with the line removed it didn't help my ituation.  I also noticed it was in 0.4.1.8 and it made me wonder if that would still run as a valid S00 startup script.  It still did seem to run properly and make changes to the /conf/config settings.  But then again I didn't actually test this, I just got a sense that it did actually work with the blank first line in there but I removed it anyway.

It is located in /usr/bin and is called bandwidth_test.  For reasons I won't get into right now, you have to run it as:
sh /usr/bin/bandwidth_test <file_to_benchmark_speed>

Got it, fella - so detailed, thanks! :-)

P.S. 0.4.1.9-4 has been installed - everything looks good, but still NO NFS shares automount ... >:(

P.P.S. Also tried bandwidth_test, in both cases: SMB & NFS output looks like below -

Average Transfer speed after 10 passes is: 0 Mb/sec

Try with a file in a directory without @.  It might be having trouble with the @Foreign and that is why you are getting a Division by zero.

Average Transfer speed after 10 passes is: 851.109 Mb/sec

PS: Im getting weird numbers, as the surpass the lan speed :S

Your file is waaay to small to give an accurate reading.  There are things like burst mode, HD caching, memory caching, buffering that will affect the output on a local drive.  You should try to get a solid stream of data that ignores any caching especially.  So you can safely bet that for a small file like lilibabe.osd.bin at 7MB you can get 851Mb/sec transfer rate.  I usually use a couple hundred MB file to get a more accurate reading. 

Remember, most modern HD's have 16-64MB caches.  The lilibabe.osd.bin fits within cache.

The fact is I was measuring the transfer speed via ethernet, so even the disk does caching there has to be another caching place at the wdtv. Tryinig with a larger file 1,2 GB, the results are adjusted to the reality

Hi,

Upgraded firmware to latest version  and I noticed that the following feature is missing:

"extra subtitle size options of 44, 48, 50, 56, 60, 64, 68, 72, 76, & 80 "

40 is still the biggest value I can setup in preferences. Any ideas?

I delete the # in the option file, but it doesn't work.


You have to use the S00customoptions file!

can you say exactly how you do this ? ait would be very helpful

Hi All,

I'm facing with a problem with 0.4.0.0 (_not_ MINIMAL). I use Linksys WUSB600N and a 500GB WD Passport HD.
In advance: I never have used Linux.
I start the box, I have WLAN connection, I access the web site of the box from my notebook, start Deluge UI.
The Deluge suggest to use the /boot as destination directory and I have no idea how to change it onto the HD that is on USB? How can I refer it under Linux?
Anyway I can add torrent file and Deluge starts to check it inmediately but it stucks in this state. What can be the problem? The /boot directory has insufficient space (my idea)?

The oter thing that is strange: I have WLAN access only with 0.4.0.0. Under the 0.4.1.X branch the wireless stick doesn't work no matter whether I leave intact the S00custom-options or enable the
config_tool -c WIRELESS_DRIVER=rt2870sta
line. The WUSB600N has rt2870 chipset. How can I resolve this problem in case of newest images?

Cheers

Hi,

I have a problem with nzbget in frontend, I don't know what to do with the paths..

I would like to put all the files (temp, finished...) on the same directory of my nas: \\192.168.0.5\Volume_1\Downloads

I have an error message like that:
ERROR: Could not start server. Errorcode: 255.

Output:
config saved val:key => (NZBGET,ON)

FATAL ERROR: Directory "b962f0d4-ef6f-40ee-bc71-bbed1e5328da/Volume_1/Downloads/" (option "DestDir") does not exist and could not be created

Maybe this issue is the result of an other problem ? I don't really know..

----

I also have a problem when I put all my files on my USB key (I use the 0.4.1.9-4 firmware and all was ok with the previous one).

Test1:

"Moviesheets" folder
MSheetLive.app.bin
MSheetLive.app.conf
psychothc_mod_05_4.osd.bin
"S00custom-options" file (with or without any changes, it's the same)

The WDlive goes to the "Loading page" but then, reboot again and again

Test2:

Same files without the "S00custom-options" file

The WDlive freeze with color issues

Test3:

The WDLive start if I erase MSheetLive.app.bin and MSheetLive.app.conf from my USB key..


Test4:

"Moviesheets" folder
MSheetLive.app.bin
MSheetLive.app.conf
psychothc_mod_05_3.osd.bin

All is ok, the WDlive works as usual. No reboot, nothing wrong

I think it's psychoTHC's mod which is probably the problem ?

Maybe the subtitle colour is defined at /osd/subtitle.xml? If so, just modifying textcolor="0xcccccc" to a custom colour would do it (will try tomorrow).

Edit: changing lilbabe´s osd wont change the subtitle colour, but as its based on other firmware, that could be the explanation. In osdmodLive, the colour codes are different. Will try again tomorrow.

No, simply uncommenting the lines will *NOT* help - for it to work, you'd need to uncomment the second line (only, leave UMSP alone) but you would also need to change it to

Simply uncommenting the lines would turn both UMSP and LIGHTTPD to off.

Then you should read my answer CORRECTLY. I have marked OFF AND # and wrote that it is not possible if he DONT activate UMSP AND LIGHTTPD (what means = ON) like it is written in the S00custom-options (or asked how it should work, if he didn't uncomment AND activate both).

Furthermore:
## Disable UMSP (default enabled - REQUIRES LIGHTTPD=ON TO WORK)

What is so unclear that he dont get it? And it's discussed more than 1 time here what you have to do to get UMSP running (and b-rad made it BIG in the S00custom-options...). That's why my answer is "snarky" because i don't like people that only ask and don't investigate with that stuff before asking.

So all informations are correct. You only need to read correctly, not only the first part of a sentence. ;)

Well, well well,

it is really a source for misunderstanding:

## Disable UMSP (default enabled - REQUIRES LIGHTTPD=ON TO WORK)
#config_tool -c UMSP=OFF

## Disable lighttpd webserver (default enabled)
#config_tool -c LIGHTTPD=OFF

"default enabled" says the default is ON for both, but to be sure it is running the best is to change it as mentioned to the "ON"-value in the config-file.

Hope now it is clear without further negative bashing.

BTW: a thing to have an eye upon in the wiki to improve.

This is what I did to make it work.  Eventhough it said "Default Enabled".  I changed both to ON and Un-Commented the line.

## Disable UMSP (default enabled - REQUIRES LIGHTTPD=ON TO WORK)
config_tool -c UMSP=ON

## Disable lighttpd webserver (default enabled)
config_tool -c LIGHTTPD=ON

This ensured both UMSP adn LIGHTTPD are on for sure.  It wasn't working when I simply left it to the default settings.

I hope this helps.

btw: with powered on you mean "unplug and plug power cable", right? Only power on via remote control will not work!
And with uncommented "all the lines" you mean you have uncommented the right onr line, right? If you uncomment all lines, it is a little bit stupid...

Note: Perhaps you should open your own thread with this noob question! Here you should only report real problems with the modifications.

i uncommented all the lines with subtitles size and copied the options to the root of my usb stick and i unplugged the power cord from the wd, then inserted the usb stick powered on the wd but nothing happened,am i missing anything?

Only uncomment ONE subtitle size, not all of them. If it doesn't work send the config_tool command with telnet (search "putty" in the forum how to do that)...

I have problem with WDXTV-LIVE...

I upgraded from latest final offical firmware (with factory settings) to latest unofficial, but no Youtube. I have tried different settings, but no luck.
Also moviesheet page doesnt fit well to my screen [probably wrong topic]

Any suggestions?


up!



Try this is the only way : flash your device with the original firmware "all files"  wdtvlive.bi wdtvlive.ver and wdtvlive.fff ,because the .fff file reset all variables , then flash with your favorites custom firmware.

Hi all, looking for some help once again after the last two weeks of trying to figure this out, well lets say get it working cause the figure part isnt difficult.
So i have just updated to the new fw .9-4, from the .9, I have tried all the options i have found in this forum, i did check others as well but they all suck compared to this great place.
to the problems lol
first Movie sheets, I have the MsheetLive which hasnt worked yet, i added the PsychoTHC OSD MOD v05.2,3,4, so 3 different versions with both the recent and last brad firmware, so .9 and .9-4.
I read that only the v05.3 worked with moviesheets, but no success.
The box starts displays the logos, and then the osd mod, icons are missing, then a few secs later it reboots.
I removed the gui mod, set my own wallpaper, same thing happens as with the osd mod.
I have tried the PsychoTHC OSD MOD v05.4 without the Moviesheets but same happens, reboot and icons missing.
Now I do have a few other issues also, like appletrailers, not got them working, xmount what a pain that, not getting any network shares. But ok I havent given up on those yet will keep trying and will come back later if I keep pulling my hair out lol
But please somebody any ideas on the moviesheets, maybe another osd mod that works with moviesheets live and the new brad firmware????

Hi

I have a problem with WD TV Live
I have uploaded FW 0.4.0.0 and when  I try to play movie it freezes.
I tried FW 0.4.1.9-4. and the same thing.

O.k. I went back to original software from WD 1.01.24 but the problem is still here.
What happened to my WD TV Live.
I really like this box but now I can't watch anything.

Can anybody help, please.

I have the fw version 0.4.1.9-4 and is ok (for me).

You tested your unit with mod fw 1.01.24_brda_04.1.9.-4 and freeze
You tested your unit with original fw 1.01.24 and freeze
You tested your unit with original fw 1.01.17 and worked fine.

You can see that your unit with your files had problems also with original fw (and relative b-rad fw that it's based on original 1.01.24).

Tested the unit with original firmware 1.01.24 and files downloaded by here:

I don't understand why it is not working anymore.

All movies worked just fine with WD 1.01.11 and 17, but when I uploaded B-rad's 0.4.0.0 everything stopped working.
Why does it matter from where do I download my movies?
 

Title: Re: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X
Post by: xfiles2099 on March 27, 2010, 07:50:17 AM
Because it's important to identify if the problem happens with file ripped and downloaded by emule/torrent than from certified files that are created speficcaly to test multimedia device.

For that I provided you a link where you can downlaod certified files. Please use it and test with latest official fw (1.01.24)

When you make tests all components of your test should be certified.

Otherwise if you have doubts on some components (WD TV Live than movie files) are not sure which is the failed part.

Hi All, just upgraded from 0.3.4.5 to 0.4.1.9-4. Issue I encountered was with the network settings. Prior to the upgrade I could manually set the IP address etc and all worked fine. With 0.4.1.9-4, when I do this and reboot and then attempt a 'Check connection' it fails on the DNS check "Incorrect DNS server address". You can't ping it. I then set it back to auto and it successfully obtains an IP via DHCP. Funny thing is, its the same DNS address I've been using since the start. Any clues anyone ?
Thanks.

the firm is leaving the original site of b-rad, I've turned off the two demons like you, but does not turn off the usb. any solution? I'm interested in this firm for the Eiri.
if I use the TOP command and the only thing that i don't understant is "msheets" may be the problem? I don't installed msheets.

Hi B-RAD

Great work - I think its great what youve done.

I have run your mods with ease up til 0.4.1.0. After that I seem to have trouble mounting my network drive as I usually do. What am I doing wrong? I have edited your most recent net.mount file (I use edit the part of the IP adress and login + password), and added the same as always, but when I load the mod it doesnt work. I have checked the net connection and it works.

Hope you can help me out. Thanks

hey B-rad was wondering is there a telnet command or script to flush the moviesheets and regenerate them.
Without having to reboot the wdtv. If something like that exists it could be added to webend like the reboot command.
Would make it easier for people to change sheets on the fly and test them.

if you already have the moviesheet on your live and you update it if you just go back to that movie that image(sheet) will be changed automatically.

Hi B-Rad, by the way, since 0.4.1.9-4 and 0.4.1.9-6, WDLXTV-Live ignores custom villa_bg.jpg and screen_saver.png files located at the root of a USB stick.

0.4.1.9 loads those 2 files perfectly.

Check via telnet if the option is really stored: grep USB /conf/config
Output should be: USB_POWER_OFF='1'
And observe the rules in S00custom-options:
## several examples are provided below, uncomment (delete #) them to use
## config_tool commands only need to be executed _once_ then they can be re-commented
## turns off 5V to USB Bus on standby (when you press power off on remote)
## this action is prevented by the following:
##  - root.bin active
##  - OSD Theme active
##  - Optware active
##  - app.bin active
##  - Deluge or NZBget enabled
AddOn: Power off may not work properly with usb hubs

Try to add/uncomment config_tool -c BACKGROUND_IMAGE=villa_bg.jpg in S00Custom.
I have working custom BG in 0.4.1.9-4 with that option.


2 all: I have some lags browsing videos (thumbs) in 0.4.1.9 and 0.4.1.9-4. Have anyone similar problem? There are no lags in official firmware.

I have been having the problem that all the custom firmware since 0.4.1.7-1 will not load app.bin or osd.bin files from my ntfs harddrive.  I know fat32 is more reliable but I can't use it because of the 4GB file size limitation.  Not sure what has changed but I have definitely noticed a problem.

Hi B-Rad, by the way, since 0.4.1.9-4 and 0.4.1.9-6, WDLXTV-Live ignores custom villa_bg.jpg and screen_saver.png files located at the root of a USB stick.

0.4.1.9 loads those 2 files perfectly.

Keep up the great work!

Yes i can confirm this too :-[

I got the same problem, but I simply removed all *.app.bin, reflash with the latest custom firmware and redownload from the internet all *.app.bin and everything works fine.

Hello everyone.
First, thanks for the firmware, it rocks!

But when I try to upload an nzb through NZBGet Web I get:
Filesize is bigger then allowed! Please check the setting “UploadMaxFileSize” in php.ini.

Since php.ini is located in /etc and wdtv live is a read only file system how can I change this setting to be able to upload large .nzb files?
Thanks,

Paul

Regarding Custom Backgrounds

I'm running 4.1.9.6 and I have custom backgrounds running.

initially after upgrade I had problems with my live hanging at boot, never reached main menu
trouble shooting determined corrupted app.bin file causing this
downloaded new copy of app.bin files and all works

root of my Fat 32 thumb drive contains
Msheetlive.app.bin
Msheetlive.conf
wdtvext.bin
psychothcosdmod.bin
villa_bg.jpg
screen_saver.png

what's not on my root custom options.conf , for the moment I don't need any of those options

thanks for all the great work b-rad :)
really looking forward to your integration of msheet with your firmware

config_tool -c USB_POWER_OFF=1 doesn't work.

The usb pendrive is empty and I've already insert this commands (config_tool -c DELUGE=OFF,
config_tool -c NZBGET=OFF) into S00custom-options and i also try to execute manually with telnet. The led is always on.
Please check /tmp/messages.txt via telnet, if you have the same trouble as me:
Dec 31 23:01:17 WDTVLIVE user.notice power.monitor: attempting to shut off power to USB bus
Dec 31 23:01:17 WDTVLIVE user.notice usb.power.off: OSD Theme active, cannot turn off USB bus power!

But I can't find any running OSD theme.
hi
I have the same problem, does not turn off the usb, I tried using telnet to use usb.power.off and I get the same error message, and I don't have any osd Theme installed that I know!
the firm is leaving the original site of b-rad, I've turned off the two demons like you, but does not turn off the usb. any solution? I'm interested in this firm for the Eiri.
if I use the TOP command and the only thing that i don't understant is "msheets" may be the problem? I don't installed msheets.

Sorry for my english, is a google-translation

Thanks
hi

thanks for the update, now run perfectly the usb.power.off.

When you finish yours, based upon the new final, a donation will be made, because I can use the moviesheets (yours, lili's or whatever....) and enjoy the features of the new official firmware. Almost everything I've been waiting for  ;D ;D ;D.
But take your time, don't rush. But only as long it will be ready for the next winter ;)....

Hmm...I am running the latest 0.4.1.9-6 EXT version, but when I try to edit the osd xml files, I get permission denied.
Am I doing something wrong? I even tried to chmod via telnet and same issue.
I am confident that I have edited these files in the past under a different EXT version.

i'm trying to figure out how to implement the usb power off.i tried it without changing the soo custom then i changed the 1 to a 0.still nothing not quite sure what else to do or hoe to use that option
Check via telnet if the option is really stored: grep USB /conf/config
Output should be: USB_POWER_OFF='1'
And observe the rules in S00custom-options:
## several examples are provided below, uncomment (delete #) them to use
## config_tool commands only need to be executed _once_ then they can be re-commented
## turns off 5V to USB Bus on standby (when you press power off on remote)
## this action is prevented by the following:
##  - root.bin active
##  - OSD Theme active
##  - Optware active
##  - app.bin active
##  - Deluge or NZBget enabled
AddOn: Power off may not work properly with usb hubs



I telnet in(front end) clicked telnet client used the login root then nothing..not sure how else to get in. i clicked on processes and this came up nothing about usb power off.

Brad,

Can you advise if you can install your firmware via mass storage off a mobile phone.

I have a nokia n96 (16gb internal memory) and I was going to connect it via usb and install from there.

The reason I ask is that, when installing the firmware, the box reboots, so the phone will loose its connection and then it will prompt on the phone to select mass storage.

I don't have access to a pc this now and my works pc now use encyption software called check point where it puts a password on the USB stick. I can put the file in the top root of my drive on my phone...do you think it will work - don't want to brick my box!

Cheers

WDLXTV_Live-0.4.1.9-6
Thanks a lot, it is great.

Are you going to prepare new firmware, based on official 1.02.21 ?

And another question:
when I try under Windows unpack your firmware by help modified cramfsck - I got message:
>cramfsck -x rootfs wdtvlive.img
/cramfs/cramfsck: mkdir failed: wdtvlive/usr/lib/perl/5.10.1/sys: File exists

It is because we have such different folders:
/usr/lib/perl/5.10.1/sys/ and
/usr/lib/perl/5.10.1/Sys/

It is ok for Linux, but not ok for Windows.

Is it necessary or you can rebuild your software for avoiding this problem ?

Thank you very much again for your job

And it sounds like they might have fixed images showing up in the video section over network shares.  What others call "duplicate files" issue.

Good release WD!  It will be nice to have a B-rad firmware based on this version.

You have to learn how to use telnet - otherwise it's really difficult to help you.
After the telnet prompt ('#"), type: grep USB /conf/config

Watching Ninja Assasin, the subtitles where too low! They actually went below the viewable space of my tv :-/ Not to mention that they were also quite large. I don't know which settings are relevant so I included my config. I don't think I  have edited anything related to subs.

Thanks for the great work!

I have a problem when i use the following option in "S00custom-options":
config_tool -c DISABLE_ETHERNET_ON_STANDBY=YES

When i set "YES", then i can't use static ip address. I set from dhcp to static, this works, then I reboot the wd, now the static ip don't work.

Can anybody help me?

Hi all,

in some other thread I saw, that b-rad implemented the possibility to use moviesheets but I cant figure out how it works. Sounds to me like an april fool :-)

Can somebody tell me if moviesheets work with the new fw and how?

Yes, I have it almost working (I need to play with my directory structure I think).

- Load the custom firmware if not done already
- telnet into box
- run the cmd's listed on b-rad's page

I imagine you could also set the cmd's in the custom script file, but I didn't try

FYI, Deluge is still not working, or at least I don't know how to configure it to work. I can download torrents, but if the torrent has more than one file, I can't deselect one of the files for download. In fact, if it does download both files, it'll be downloaded to ONE PHYSICAL file, the first one, which causes corruption. b-rad, any fix? This bug has been there for quite a while, and some time back, you acknowledged this bug. Please help...

i am trying before i ask i typed what you told me to type i didn't notice the space between USB and / any how i got usb_power_off 1
 so i assume it's correct and it should shut off with the power button.
Ok, now examine the logfile /tmp/messages.txt after switching power button off/on.
Check for errors after the line:
ifconfg2: powering down interface -- USB_POWER_OFF=1

i typed in the /tmp/messages/.txt i get permission denied i then did cat /conf/config and at the bottom i show the usb_power_"1" i also look at the processes and i don't show error

Title: Strange bug with drive, connected by help hub
Post by: avkiev on April 03, 2010, 07:41:40 AM
Hard-drive (FAT32) connected to WDTVLive (0.4.1.9-6) by help hub.
I see it from computer (WinXP SP3) as a network share.
There is a file "1.AVI" on the drive.
I want rename it to "1.avi". But I can't ! - message appears "File already exist".
Ok, I try rename it in such manner: 1.AVI -> 1.AVI2 -> 1.avi. It works, but target file still has extension AVI, not avi.

If I connect drive without hub - it seems than renaming is ok. May be smth wrong in hub's driver ?
Or may be some cache is working ?
Very strange bug...

PS. Medialibrary switched off

Does the latest version of WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X provide a searchable library function for network shares?

Not quite sure what you want to acomplish but try to search for ".addMounts". This might help you.

Hi, I'm after a bit of info.
I'm using B-rad's latest firmware. If I use a USB hard drive connected to the Live and put the Live in standby will the drive spin down? If it does spin down would I still be able to send files to the drive (over the network) and whould the drive then spin back up and spin down once the file transfer is complete?

(I'm currently using a NAS and I'm considering switching to a USB Hard Drive, shared through the Live)

Many thanks  ;)

Moviesheets works fine and it shows 12 thumbs at time and thats the problem because this combination is only one which shows 12 thumbs at time.
12 thumbs at time is much more better than 8



Then without s00custom
I used telnet to execute these commands:

Pretor, you mix 2 things together:


So, that means if you are using WDLXTV_Live-0.4.1.9-6 there is no need to have
WDTVExt.app.bin +MSheetLive.app.bin + MSheetLive.app.conf on your pendrive anymore to get moviesheets working.

And as long you have the WDTVExt.app.bin on your pendrive the S00-option file will not be executed at startup! So any changes you have made in this file do not take effect. Then, telnet is the key to switch on or off what you need manually.
Title: Re: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X
Post by: Pretor on April 04, 2010, 02:05:34 AM

Pretor, you mix 2 things together:

  • 1. "WDTVExt.app.bin +MSheetLive.app.bin + MSheetLive.app.conf"
    This was to get Moviesheets working before WDLXTV_Live-0.4.1.9-6 was released.
    You controlled the moviesheets by: VIDEO_SHEET_THUMB_VIEW, SHEET_THUMB_VIEW, VIDEO_SHEET_THUMB_VIEW

  • 2. "WDLXTV_Live-0.4.1.9-6 + S00 options"
    B-Rad has integrated moviesheet functionality into the firmware. To control the moviesheets there are now new S00 commands like MSHEETMODE, VIDMSHEET, GENMSHEET, LISTMSHEET.

So, that means if you are using WDLXTV_Live-0.4.1.9-6 there is no need to have
WDTVExt.app.bin +MSheetLive.app.bin + MSheetLive.app.conf on your pendrive anymore to get moviesheets working.

And as long you have the WDTVExt.app.bin on your pendrive the S00-option file will not be executed at startup! So any changes you have made in this file do not take effect. Then, telnet is the key to switch on or off what you need manually.
Moviesheets works fine without those extra files. Just psychothc_mod_05_6.osd.bin added on pendrive. (works also if s00 is added)
Also moviesheets works fine without pendrive.
Only problem is how i get 12 thumbs -view without using that "old" combination.
Title: Re: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X
Post by: PsychoTHC on April 04, 2010, 02:36:07 AM
It makes not much sense to run the WDLXTV without the S00custom-options file.
Open S00custom-options file and enable 12thumbs by removing the "#"
Code: [Select]
config_tool -c THUMBRESO=150x200or telnet
Code: [Select]
config_tool -c THUMBRESO=150x200to get 12 thumb view

Im totally blind. Goddamn am I stupid or something  ;D
Never touched that command because "old" combination showed 12 thumbs.
21 thumbs is much more better than 12  :D

Have to use this mode because overscan.

I hope BlackX isn't a FAT32 disk.
The symlinks that are supposed to be created in MSHEETS dir has to reside on a linux filesystem. The default is "/msheet".

MSHEETOPTS='p' creates sheets for both dir and movie (when it is supposed to = depending on MSHEETMODE).
Just leave it as it is.

Does the latest version of WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X provide a searchable library function for network shares?
Does it matter which version of the WD firmware I have installed when I install WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X?

There are at least two ways of doing it.
One is adding an empty files called .addMounts in the root / on the always attached usbstick/usbhdd.
The scripts will then create a dir called "extra-devices" and link your shares there.

One other way is to manually "mount -o bind" your shares onto the always attached usbstick/usbhdd.

Just bear in mind that neither way work all that well. It will add more files to your media library, but it will not load them all (unless you have a really small collection or only a single/few shared dirs you want to add). In my case it increased the number of music files from ~400 to almost 3000, but this is only a fraction of the files I mount-binded. so, it's better than nothing, but it's not good.

If your question is that if you can install the WDLXTV firmware after the firmware upgrade 1.02.21 the answer is yes but if your're asking if you can have both at the same time the answer is no because both are firmwares. Brad is working on a new release based on the WDLXTV is based on the 1.02.21 firmware so we'll have the best of both firmwares sometime in the future (how fast we have it depends on how many of us donate :D)

Thanks for the reply.  I added .addMounts to the root and no dir was created.  Are the scripts that you refer to part of the WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X or where do I find them?

i typed in the /tmp/messages/.txt i get permission denied i then did cat /conf/config and at the bottom i show the usb_power_"1" i also look at the processes and i don't show error
Hi ithrill, you have to learn some simple commands to analyze basic problems - search google for linux/unix tuturials.
eg. list a file: 'cat /tmp/messages.txt' or 'less /tmp/messages.txt' 
eg. search a file: 'grep USB /conf/config'

Hi,

I'm using the ext3-boot-4.1.9-6 and I have a problem with the ftp server .

If I'm trying to download or upload file with size of 400mb or  more I  receive  this message :

ftpcontrolsocket.cpp(1819): Waiting for replies to skip before sending next command...   caller=0x14b95d0

Firezilla or kftp or ftp or wsftp asking me if I want to resume the download/upload with 2 result : 1) the operation is stuck forever 2) if the operation is ok the file is corrupted.

No problem if I download  with nfs or samba.

Is a bug in Pure-ftp or ... ?

Your experience sounds exactly what happened to me. After the switch to 0.4.1.9-6 and getting the "no content available" I disabled the you tube switcher by uncommenting this in the S00 file: config_tool -c YOUTUBE_SWITCHER=''

It then worked fine. I figured I'd try the HD thing again later to figure out what went wrong, but not now. 
Hope it helps.

You need to revert to the 1.01.24 firmware (Don't forget to include the wdtvlive.fff file that comes with the firmware. Reset to factory defaults, power off the wdtv, power on and try to use youtube. It should work now.

Now you can install b-rad's 0.4.1.9-6 without problems.

Which version of 0.4.1.9 (ext3?) and which app is not working?

Version WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.1.9-6 works great as a media center, thank you.

But I am having a problem with file transfers TO the WD from Windows7 64 bit.
Smaller files transfer fine, but larger file 1 gig do not transfer.
With Samba the transfer just times out while "calaculating..."
With FTP, I get a Critical File Transfer Error

Did not have this problem with 0.3.3.1, but did have it with 0.3.4.1

If others are not having this problem, it is problably a set up problem,
Anyone have any advice on how to fix it?

OK, weird events with my USB hub under b-rad's FW (next-to-latest):

1) I have a 7-port USB hub with 5 HDDs attached to it (1TB each, ext3-formatted) attached to USB2, plus a USB key (FAT32) with s000-config on it attached to USB1. When I reboot WDTV-Live, 4 out of the 5 HDDs get mounted correctly (ie, come up on the listing under their partition name with the appropriate "folder.jpg" displayed). The fifth one (and it's not always the same one) comes up as USB2 with the standard USB icon.

2) I have tried the USB-off option, and it works. Only, it works *too well*. Once my drives have turned off, they tend to refuse to turn back on again until I reboot the WDTV-Live.

And just to make life fun, none of the above happened with the WDTV Gen 1.  :(

Any ideas?

I am having trouble exporting NFS shares.  unfs3 was working fine, so I assume it is my wdtv configuration rather than hardware or client.  After many attempts to fix the exports file and other switches I came across this in my /var/logs/messages.txt file:

Dec 31 19:00:40 WDTV_LIVE user.info kernel: Installing knfsd (copyright (C) 1996 okir@monad.swb.de).

nfsd failed?  Strange.  I checked "ps" to see what was running and the most likely candidate for the daemon is:
/usr/sbin/rpc.mountd -f /etc/exports
...but I sort of expected to see nfsd

When I try to mount the nfs share on my ubuntu box it says:
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting 192.168.2.152:/tmp/media/usb/

My exports file in /etc says: /tmp/media/usb 192.168.2.196(rw,async)

and "showmounts -e localhost" has my exported directory and valid host like everything should be fine.


If anyone has an nfs export configuration working, would help me out?

B-rad,

I was just wondering if you have any more advices for me to try so the transfer between my computer and WD TV operates normal.

I tried to chmod +x /conf/S00user-script and use manual IP-address but to no avail.

Avi 700Mb -1.36 GB files works properly, even though it takes 30-50 seconds before the transfer starts. Larges files take as much time as the small files but interrupts at once.

If you use the EXT3-Version (root.bin), there is no write protection.
Check again via telnet (i prefer the vi editor): vi  /etc/webend/youtube-proxy/youtubeHD.php

Changing background image is broken, have to wait for b-rads new release. For the other prob, ftp in your wdtv get the config file and then make the changes with telnet.

Have you tried disabling power to the USB port?
config_tool -c USB_POWER_OFF=1

I don't have an external HD attached but the light on my usb stick goes off when the power to the usb port is turned off.  Maybe that will solve your issue.  It also depends on what you have on the drive.

ok... so... the instructions for installation looked fairly simple... but I can't seem to get it to update with BRAD f/w.

New WDTV Live unit.
Hooked it up to the internet and took the latest official update (1.02.21).
Downloaded file called 1.01.24_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.9-6
Formatted USB Drive (2 different ones) FAT, FAT32 and copied files from above onto the root.
Stuck in the USB Flash Drive and waited for some magic.  Nothing.  Tried it various ways and times, nothing.
The unit does read the flash drive.  I can see the lights going, but nothing happens.
In addition, it can see the files (well folder) of the usb drive and access it no problem.

If i choose update in the menu, it keeps trying to access the internet and say that i have the latest version.  So I went to WD's site and read the instructions on updating FW via the USB Flash Drive with official firmware and that doesn't work at all. 

So, maybe I am just missing a step here or something, but I can't seem to get it right. 

Any help is appreciated.

But I can't copy 1,8G-file. Transfer fails.
0.4.1.9-6

I test on original firmware and the problem is present in firmware 1.01.24 and 1.02.21

So this mean I have to unplug the hard drive and plug it in the computer each time I want to transfer a movie to the hard drive?
At the moment, I don't see another solution.... It's a pity.
Can someone else confirm/refuse this bug ?

is it possible to turn off (when wdlxtv goes in standby) only one (of two) usb attached hdd's ?
i know that it isn't if deluge is active but would be a great feature. that's because I think many people like me have 2 hdd's attached, and personally I'm using one for downloads with deluge. to the second one I move all the downloaded stuff, that's because I think is not quite a good thing using the same hdd for downloading and playing movies at the same time (when I wanna see a movie it plays from one hdd in the meantime on the other one deluge downloads other movies)

@all others with USB power off problems: Ensure, that you have really NO *.bin files in root directory!
And check via telnet "grep USB  /conf/config", if the option is really active (USB_POWER_OFF=1)

Hello

I've got a question for once, it's about the live365switcher for shoutcast .has anyone any idea how I may bring the hardware to work. I have found in the s00custom-option changed in the following.

## Disable UMSP (default enabled - REQUIRES LIGHTTPD=ON TO WORK)
config_tool -c UMSP=ON

## Disable lighttpd webserver (default enabled)
config_tool -c LIGHTTPD=ON

## Live365 Switcher (You can only use one at a time!)
## to enable Shoutcast
config_tool -c LIVE365SWITCHER=shoutcast

and how can I change the background image?

## original background:
#config_tool -c BACKGROUND_IMAGE=original_bg.jpg
## eM82's backdrop background:
#config_tool -c BACKGROUND_IMAGE=eM82_bg.jpg
## wood panel (default) background:
config_tool -c BACKGROUND_IMAGE=villa_bg.jpg
## some random location (absolute)
#config_tool -c BACKGROUND_IMAGE=/tmp/media/usb/some/random/location.jpg

I have renamed my image to villa_bg.jpg and on the USB (root), saved
Unfortunately, it does not work

The last version where this worked was 0.4.1.9, which is the version I have flashed in. The changes in the following 2 version do not affect me, so I stayed with the version that worked.

It's broken in 0.4.1.9-4 and 0.4.1.9-6, B-Rad is aware of the issue and I assume it will be fixed in the next version.

Most things are fine in 0.4.1.9. A few things broke after that, you can play with that version until the new versions comes out.
Config will be very similar anyways, on the new b-rad firmware which will be based on the new official WD firmware.

mikemodanoxxx,

in general .bin files need to be loaded from Fat32 not NTFS, I had never heard of anybody successfuly loading app.bin from NTFS regardless of size, so you have 2 options, load from fat32 pendrive, or create a small fat32 partition on your WDMybook,

when you say WDTV live doens't turn off - I assume you mean the connected Hard drive does not turn off, there's a USB power off option in the custom firmware which can be activated by using s00-custom-options, however there are several things that will not allow the USB power off to function, 1 of them is having an app.bin running, for more information on how to enable USB power off check out the wiki

2 Questions:

1) Recently I uploaded an NZB via web interface, it downloaded all the necessary files.  However the NZB file repeatedly gets placed into the queue.

I have deleted the nzb from the /nzb directly, I have deleted all files in the /queue directly as well as in the /tmp directly.
This .nzb file reappears in the NZB directly on its on, and I can't figure out where it is replicating from.
Any ideas where I can find where this file is originating from and keeps getting placed into the queue?

2)Why am I unable to upload via the webinterface until I make this command in telnet
"chmod 777 /tmp/media/usb/USB2/55D123D9E79ABF54/nzb/"

Is there anyway to place this into the config file in order for me not to have to do this everytime I reboot, or the power goes out on the unit?

Thanks for your help
Title: Re: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X - No Display HDMI or Component or Composite
Post by: ozra on April 10, 2010, 06:18:22 PM
Good Day Everybody,

Thanks to b-rad and all the other very clever people out there that is making these firmwares possible.

I have successfully flashed to 0.4.1.9-6.

Rebooted several times. Liked the new default look much better.


Can anybody help with restoring screen output for me please?
The following are the symptoms:

I have no display coming up when I power on my WD Live.
Checked with 3 HDMI monitors (all working on Comp.) On my Pioneer Plasma or on my Panasonic TV.
On Panasonic TV, Composite output will briefly flash the WDTV Square Logo on power-on but then the signal disappears again.
No Signal on Component at all.
HDMI briefly flashes the screen but no logo or pic or menus.

Telnet and web menus etc all work fine.
Removal of USB drives etc are all recognised. I can also see the drives attached to WD Tv Live across the network.

How can I restore my display? Or flash my unit back to Original firmware if I cannot see the display?

What led up to the missing display:

I have successfully flashed to 0.4.1.9-6.

Removed power several times, all good and booting well.

Used the Web interface. telnet etc all looking good.

Used the remote on the web interface. All working OK.
UBS did not shutdown power so grep USB /conf/config showed it was missing.

config_tool -c USB_POWER_OFF=1 fixed that.

USB power now shuts down my 2.5" HD

Removed power again. Unit boots but no display.

Be patient...
New firmware now is not that easy for B-rad, there are many patches to apply to the WD firmware, and these need testing too.


if you navigate to wdlxtv.com (http://wdlxtv.com) and then browse around the various areas you'll find a beta of what i'm currently working on. ETA to publishing is 10 days. Its perfectly stable, but there are key pieces that are still under heavy development. 0.4.2.0 is going to be good ;)

@ ozra

From your file, it looks like the output is HDMI but for some reason is not working (bad cable, display hdmi output ??)

On the left side of the WDTV-live (just in front of the side usb port is a small button. Use a paperclip or something to press this for about 10 seconds and reboot the wdtv (remove power briefly).

This sets everything to default settings (composite out) so you should at least get an output from the composite/component jacks.

Hope you get it working again...I know how that feels when it's not going well.

@ b-rad...Sounds like it's going to be worth the wait!

Thanks for the suggestion.

I found that in the manual and tried it before I posted.

Unfortunately it did not help my cause.


The HDMI cable works. I can plug the WDTV end of the HDMI cable into my PC HDMI and get my desktop to Display on the monitor. Or rather all three of the monitors.

Good Day Everybody,

Thanks to b-rad and all the other very clever people out there that is making these firmwares possible.

I have successfully flashed to 0.4.1.9-6.

Rebooted several times. Liked the new default look much better.


Can anybody help with restoring screen output for me please?
The following are the symptoms:

I have no display coming up when I power on my WD Live.
Checked with 3 HDMI monitors (all working on Comp.) On my Pioneer Plasma or on my Panasonic TV.
On Panasonic TV, Composite output will briefly flash the WDTV Square Logo on power-on but then the signal disappears again.
No Signal on Component at all.
HDMI briefly flashes the screen but no logo or pic or menus.

Telnet and web menus etc all work fine.
Removal of USB drives etc are all recognised. I can also see the drives attached to WD Tv Live across the network.

How can I restore my display? Or flash my unit back to Original firmware if I cannot see the display?

What led up to the missing display:

I have successfully flashed to 0.4.1.9-6.

Removed power several times, all good and booting well.

Used the Web interface. telnet etc all looking good.

Used the remote on the web interface. All working OK.
UBS did not shutdown power so grep USB /conf/config showed it was missing.

config_tool -c USB_POWER_OFF=1 fixed that.

USB power now shuts down my 2.5" HD

Removed power again. Unit boots but no display.

In this thread is only one way described (many times like WoodyDane said) and this is how it works.

so what i did is revert to official firmware 1.01.11 and then reset to factory defaults and youtube was working...then I updated to b-rad's 0.4.1.9-6 and youtube still says "no content available"...this stinks :(

You need to revert to the 1.01.24 firmware (Don't forget to include the wdtvlive.fff file that comes with the firmware. Reset to factory defaults, power off the wdtv, power on and try to use youtube. It should work now.

Now you can install b-rad's 0.4.1.9-6 without problems.

ok so I have youtube now...now I just have to figure out how to get youtube HD and how to get the restricted content lifted!  any ideas?

Your mounts doesn't show up under /tmp/media/usb/USB2/ so you cannot see them in the GUI. Normally that should happen automatically.

Hi, first of all thanks for this great firmware! I am currently trying to streamline my WDTV Live as a dedicated movie playback device. Now that movie sheets are working, I was wondering, is there any possibility to jump to a specific folder immediately after boot/power on, maybe using S00custom-options as it is executed at boot? I wasn't able to find anything using the search function so any help would be appreciated.

Yes. it's possible. Not pretty - but possible. http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=5212.0 (http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=5212.0)

I am having a problem with my wireless N USB adapter.  It works fine, but when I come out of standby the WDTV fails to recognize the adapter.  Only a hard power cycle seems to clear this. 

Note that I am using the config_tool -c USB_POWER_OFF=1 option so that my adapter is completely powered down in standy mode. 

This is with the latest 4.1.9.6 minimal firmware. 

Any ideas? 

Thanks,

I see USB1, and USB2, I select USB2 (my hub) I see 4 folders, which are actually my 4 HDD's each named as I named the HDD's
the format did change, previously saw my HDD's immediately without entering USB2

That's weird - I use a 7-port USB hub with 5x1TB attached, and they all come up under their Filesystem names ("Music", "Movies", "Anime 1", etc...). This also includes the USB key I have attached on USB1 (it's named "wdtv").

Having said that, one out of 5 drives (not always the same) will come up as USB2 after a reboot.  Go figure.

Try to connect on videocomposite not component and restore the default setting by setting menu .

Thanks for the suggestion N00B.

I did some more testing and it seems when I resume from suspend all of my USB attached devices don't function (USB thumb drive and USB wifi adapter).  Anyone else with this problem when using the config_tool -c USB_POWER_OFF=1 option? 

I am having a problem with my wireless N USB adapter.  It works fine, but when I come out of standby the WDTV fails to recognize the adapter.  Only a hard power cycle seems to clear this. 

Note that I am using the config_tool -c USB_POWER_OFF=1 option so that my adapter is completely powered down in standy mode. 

This is with the latest 4.1.9.6 minimal firmware. 

Any ideas? 

Thanks,

Craig

Question about timezone for NTP.
I live in Kiev, Ukraine. So, my timezone is UTC+2 (winter) and UTC+3 (summer).
I tried such timezones: EET, EEST, EEDT. They are not work. Time doesn't shift.
Now I use MSK, it work, but it is not my timezone.
Which value I have to use ?

I believe you would use "EEST2EEDT".

I'm new in this topic and tried to update my WDTV Live (official 1.02.21 firmware, picto OSD mod) with the new beta firmware from b-rad based on the latest official firmware.
He wrotes that the file "root.bin" has to be copied to a FAT formated thumb drive and then the WDTV Live box must be switched on. If I do this then the box switches on but nothing happens, the thumb drive is recognized but no beta firmware loaded and I see the default screen (picto OSD mod).

Have I missed something? Do I need to flash the last release b-rad firmware to load the beta?

Yes, the official firmware can't load the ext3-boot beta, you need to flash any b-rad's firmware version first.

Seems if I only have my USB Wifi adapter plugged in then it resumes from standby without any issues, but if I both my USB key and USB Wifi adapter then it fails.  Anyway I'll probably just revery to leaving the USB power on.

I installed latest brad fw, non beta, and everything seems smooth, except I cannot get extractor plugin to work...I had it installed in older fw, with path configured, now I try to change it, even directly in the conf file, but it reverts to the original setting after reboot...
Even worse, it doesn't work, all it does is create a folder after torrent completion, but no extract.
To make things worse, the unrar feature in webend stopped working also. I have everything configured as I had in 0.4.0.0 and all it displays is a blank window...
Any help on automating the unrar of torrents?

Is there a way to add a print statement or something to the bottom of the S00custom-option file to indicate no syntax errors occurred within the file and prevented it from completing successfully such as "OSD options added Successfully"?

I sometimes don't think my commands are being executed and it would be helpful to know the option file completed successfully.

You have to create the sheets yes, but I don't think you are supposed to upload them to the live, it wouldn't have space to store them - you put them in the relevant directories (ie where your movies are)

But this doesn't really work with shares (a lot of hacking seems to be necessary to get them recognized) , only USB input at the moment

I think sheets work with network shares. I'd don't have mine on a network, but I've read many are running sheets on a network, just need to mount the network shares, if I'm wrong, maybe somebody running sheets on a network can chime in.

Anyway yesterday and today after changing my background I lost my network share.... yesterday I thought it was just a coincidence but after it happened again just now It def has something to do with it.

Im about to restart my pc to see if that helps.

Avi 700Mb -1.36 GB files works properly, even though it takes 30-50 seconds before the transfer starts. Larges files take as much time as the small files but interrupts at once
Same to me.
I can copy (slowly !) 1G-file from PC to hard-drive, connected to WD TV Live (network share).
But I can't copy 1,8G-file. Transfer fails.
0.4.1.9-6
I test on original firmware and the problem is present in firmware 1.01.24 and 1.02.21
So this mean I have to unplug the hard drive and plug it in the computer each time I want to transfer a movie to the hard drive?

Just an Update on my previous net.mounts issue in 4.2.0

The cifs xmounts in previous release did not work in 4.2.0. b-rad and vango44 indentifed that the box name was a bit odd "eg WDTVLIVE-50c8" b-rad is looking at the mount.watch code but in the meantime the resolution was to 1) rest to factory in 4.2.0   2) flash back to 1.02.21   3) reset to factory  4) reload 4.2.0

This plus turning the media library on worked but the xmounts still don't acutally mount to /tmp/media/usb/USB1/58c07-524x  as they used to. Meaning there is still an issue but certainly a workaround (most likely as b-rad indicated by turing media library on)

HELP!   

I really want the new features of brads lastest 4.2 and am new to his firmware, but it always crashes when trying to install it.  It always seems to allow me to reinstall the original 1.00 firmware and I can update to the latest official firmware. 

I saw someone else had problems and could install 4.1.7, so I did try that and it installed fine, I didn't really play with it to much, but I couldn't access my NFS, but can on the official firmware.

So my trials so far:

Out of box updated to 1.02.21
Tried installing 0.4.2 (failed)
Tried installing multiple different official firmware (failed)
Installed 1.00
Tried installing 0.4.2 (failed)
Installed 0.4.1.7
Tried installing 0.4.2 (failed)\
So right now its not working as I had to go to school.

Also tried two flashes drives and both the minimal install and regular.
For the heck of it I'm going to try my flash drive I keep at school also when I get home, not expecting much though.

Any ideas?

You don't say how it failed...Exactly what was the error/message/at what point in the upgrade did it fail?

Most common reasons for failure are not using a flash drive formatted for FAT32 and not including the .ver & .fff files from the firmware package.

If you have a small fat32 flash drive, you could also try downloading the ext3 version of b-rad's firmware. This version is identical to the others but just runs from the flashdrive and does not install on the box. Might help you figure out the problem.

So apparently the WDTV Live is just picky, even though for some odd reason it did seem to be able to get a firmware loaded after many tries from my 8gig flash drive.  The 1gig flash drive always failed no matter what. 

But a PNY 2gb seems to work as I have installed 4.1.7, 4.1.9-6 and now 4.20 installs fine.  So I would say anyone who is having problems try many different flash drives until you find one that works as I have also tried installing some other firmwares with custom interfaces and they all load and work.

So my guess is most likely if you are having troubles installing firmware the wdtv doesn't like your drive for whatever reason.

Hi guys,

Well, sorry to ask a silly question but Im a little disinclined to read 60 pages of chat about varying versions of B.Rad firmware, but just a couple of quick questions about the firmware:

1) Once the firmware is installed, is it easy to revert to the official firmware?
2) Does the B.Rad firmware also suffer the HDMI audio sync issues present on and off since the first updated firmware from WD?
3) If I just want to use the WD TV simply, is the B.Rad firmware the right one for me, or is it a lot more complicated by sheer virtue of the extra features it adds?
4) Why did YOU chose to use B.Rad, what does it add/fix for you that the WD firmware didn't?

Thanks :)

I just tend to use the WDTV L as a simple media player box, unfortunately because of occasional issues with the audio sync via HDMI I'm still stuck on the original firmware, and if B.Rad doesnt suffer this, and adds a lot of new features I can use if I WANT but remains simple if I dont, it might be the right firmware for me :)

Thanks a lot :)

Am downloading the minimal version as we speak, so will take a look through this custom options file and see whats what.
If I dont like it I'll just revert back to 1.01.00 like always :D

Ps. yes that actually is my name, so many people notice the similarity it's not funny :)
I actually like rock music too!

Im guessing its a good idea to update to the official latest firmware before jumping to this, or is it fine to just go straight (I know you can with the officials, but sometimes its not always the case with unnofficial firmware and devices)?

It's never a bad idea to update officially first.

HDMI audio sync?
I've never had any sync issues viewing via HDMI with the sound coming from my TV.

I do, however (since 1.0.11), have out-of-sync DD5.1 digital sound via my optical cable to my surround amplifier.
If I play a DTS movie, there is no such errors; they play perfectly.

I use a neat workaround:
I have my tv connected as another incoming source to my amplifier, via optical cable.
I turn down the volume on the tv to 0 and just select "TV" as incoming source on the amplifier, instead of choosing "WDTV" as source.
Presto! Perfect syncing audio. Sound is sent via HDMI to my TV and then via optical to amplifier.

Since watching anything with decent audio requires other sound than just the tv, I am happy.
It wouldn't kill me if this error was fixed though :-)

Hi,

I have a problem that audio stutters with last WDLXTV version (0.4.2.0).  I reinstalled same version with minimal one. But it is not changed, again audio stuttered. Then I installed official firmware. there is no any problem with official firmware.

Do you have any recommendation ?

PS: I didn't enable any additional application such as torrent and nzbget except youtubeHD...and I only use USB drive (not via network)

I can't get this to work at all.

I've installed the latest firmware, added (as listed by 'ls /apps'):
UPnP-djmount
core-extras
samba
nfs

in the root folder of an attached usb flashdisk.

My two problems:
1 - Samba stopped working.
2 - NFS doesn't work.

1)
I have a samba share on another computer that I've been using with no problems with the original firmware. After switching to wdlxtv that samba share can no longer be accessed through the GUI. It shows up, but when trying to get a listing (connect) it says "This network share can not be accessed". I should mention that I've cleared login info in the settings menu to try and fix the problem. Didn't change anything.

If I login via ssh and type:
"xmount //192.168.2.1/Movies mnt cifs"

the share is apparantly mounted in /tmp/media/usb/mnt, but is empty. I don't know why. (EDIT: I just did it again and it mounted correctly now. Still can't automount from GUI though)

2)
Upon typing: "xmount 192.168.2.1:/Volumes/ExternalData/Movies mnt nfs"
I initially get this: "/apps/nfs/bin/portmap: line 1: syntax error: unexpected "("", which can't be good.
Then after a while I get this: "mount: mounting 192.168.2.1:/Volumes/ExternalData/Movies on /tmp/media/usb/mnt failed: Input/output error", and the share is not mounted.

Mounting the NFS share works fine locally. My server side exports file contains this:
"/Volumes/ExternalData/Movies -ro
/private/tmp 10.0.0/24(rw)"


Any ideas? I've googled and googled all day to no avail.

Alright, so I have what will be considered a total newb question - but oh well! 

I have the WDTV at home, just plugged via HDMI into my tv, right now I am only using the TV's audio.   When I play MKV files, I have found that the ones with DTS audio do not work at all, but the AC3 audio ones work fine.  Does this firmware help my problem at all, or is it totally unrelated to firmware?  If so, maybe someone could shed some light on the matter for me - thank you!

Do you have a WDTV 1st Gen, WDTV 2nd Gen or a WDTV-Live?

The 1st gen WDTV can't decode and downmix DTS and can only send it out as is(requiring a DTS compatible receiver on the other end(HDMI or Optical Toslink SPDIF for playback). However the 2nd Gen WDTV and WDTV-Live can decode and downmix DTS.

if you have a 2nd Gen WDTV or a WDTV-Live, make sure the audio output setting in the configuration is set to "Stereo" and not "Digital".

"Stereo" means, it will decode and downmix everything and output it as a straight uncompressed stereo stream over HDMI, which everything at the receiving end handles.

"Digital" means pass-through, so it sends the original AC3 and DTS and whatever else directly, untouched, over the HDMI cable. So your TV like most HDTVs out there would handle an AC3 stream(required for over the air digital HD broadcasts) but not a DTS one.

Hope this answers your question.

Ciao

With any original fw this NEVER happened.

Why is that happening b-rad?

A lot of thanks for your time.

Hi y'all, I'm new and I need some help understanding all of this. I just got my wdtv live and I would like to be able to add thumbnails and movie sheets, if I can customized the firmware would be great but is not a must. Do I have to install all 3 of these firmwares? 1.02.21_B-RAD.CC_EXT3-BOOT_LIVE-0.4.2.0..... 1.02.21_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE_MINIMAL-0.4.2..... 1.02.21_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.2.0

Hi,

Quick question... I just downloaded the latest b-rad 0.4.1.9-6... first thing I did was go into the custom options to change a few things but I noticed that all the following is not there

## Movie sheet modes (only one can be enabled at a time)
## unless you have sheets for each mode you will encounter oddities switching around modes
## AKA this isn't magic
##   Full screen std mode:
#config_tool -c MSHEETMODE=std
##   1280x460 sheet mode:
config_tool -c MSHEETMODE=sheet
##   500x720 wall mode:
#config_tool -c MSHEETMODE=wall

## turn on moviesheets for a list type
## you must turn it on for a view type to see sheets!
##   video thumb mode
config_tool -c VIDMSHEET=ON
##   audio/photo thumb mode
#config_tool -c GENMSHEET=ON
##   list mode (video/audio/photo)
#config_tool -c LISTMSHEET=ON

How do movies sheets and selecting the one you want work now?

Thanks guys.

YouTube HD and Shoutcast

To those without Youtube and/or Shoutcast:
I could not get any of them; but the problem was like learning a new language again.
Here it is: from a newbie to another newbie:
-read and learn to use "Telnet" function   (there is a wiki on this site)
-re-flush original firmware to Box...read-up on downgrading
-do a factory reset
-flush B-rad's fw. to box again!

-telnet into box to change password
-start Secure Shell Client and login
You need to modify the 500custom-options file (in the WD Box !)
To change the settings type in the field:   
                      config_tool -c LIGHTTPD=ON
hit "Enter" ; you will see: saved val;key
to get Shoutcast type in the field:
                      config_tool -c LIVE365_SWITCHER=shoutcast
hit "Enter" ; you will see: saved val;key

Type in next command to get YoutubeHD:
                   config_tool -c YOUTUBE_SWITCHER=youtubeHD
hit "Enter" ; you will see: saved val;key
To set quality: type the line below with CAPITAL P after 1080...or use the 720 settings depending on your TV...but the P is in CAPITAL!
                     config_tool -c YOUTUBE_QUALITY=1080P
hit "Enter" ; you will see: saved val;key
We're done; type "exit" and hit "enter" than close the SSH program.

Pull power cord from WD Box....re-insert power; and voila: watch Youtube HD!
To get the Shoutcast stations: go to "Music" on the "Home" page than scroll to "Media servers" then to "UMSP"
You will se six icons; the second one is "Shoutcast"
Select and choose your music genre...ENJOY!

I have what may be a silly question, but: how do you make the WDTV list directory contents in *nix order instead of Windows order?

For those who don't know what I'm talking about, assume I have a directory which contains five items: three sub-directories and two files.  The directories are called A, C and E and the files are B and D.  If you list them on a Windows box, the directories get listed first so you end up with the following directory listing:
    A C E B D
But a *nix machine doesn't care about the *type* of file and lists them (by default) in alphabetical order:
    A B C D E

Considering the WDTV is a Linux machine (and a 'ls' command gives a proper *nix listing), is there a way to override the list order on the GUI?

Thanks.

Try this flash to official version 1.01.24, (make sure you have the 3 files, .ver, .bin and .fff)
do a reset to default

confirm that Youtube is working....
then you can upgrate to B-Rad's firmware....

Sometimes WDTVLIVE not display the poster as the image of the folder and / or image as a file (to understand, I mean the pictures called folder.jpg or videoname.jpg). I noticed that some can recognize them, naming them temporarily under a different name and then restore the old name.

However, a couple of these continuous still do not see them, why?
Is there any limitation on the type of images that I can use as posters?

I am noticing some FTP drop-outs with the latest version 0.4.2.2. It happens sporadically. I've been transferring large number of small files (namely MP3s) back and forth between the WDTVLive's attached USB storage and my computer via wifi. Previously, on .4.2.0, I did not experience any drop outs. However, now, FileZilla and FlashFXP just seem to drop the connection to the FTP server and are unable to reconnect until I pull the plug on the unit and replug it in.

This happens on my Macbook and my Asus laptop. On the Mac, I am using Transmit. On the Windows PC, I am using FileZilla and FlashFXP. I have always used default transfer settings but also tried changing the send/receive buffer on FlashFXP to no avail.

I'm kinda stumped by this and am trying all sorts of things to figure it out. The only thing that has changed recently is that I upgraded the firmware but I didn't see anything in the release notes about any changes to the FTP daemon or anything that would lead to drop outs. Also, I haven't read any one else complain.

I detached the hard drive attached to the USB and ran scan disk, defragger, etc. It seemed OK.

Can anyone else think of something that would help? Are there any FTP daemon log files on the WDTV? In the mean time, I'll keep reading.

I think downgrading is impossible, so what else do you think I should try?

Ahh! I was hoping a work around fix was simple like this. I will try this now and report back. I still could not figure out the FTP drop-outs.

Last night, I copied 2GB of photos about 2MB each in size no drop out. Then, I started to transfer some videos about 200MB each and it cut out on the first one after about 20MB transferred. kdljaslkfdji1n~~~!!

So I modified the version file, put back .4.2.0 and have transferred a bunch back and forth with no drop outs so far. Thanks for the help!

is there any chance that a custom firmware could possibly add IMDB scraping and/or search? I just returned my popbox and though IMDB scraping was great, basic functionality of the popbox was just total crap. Made me really appreciate my WD TV Live. I hope some additional functionality comes to it soon though.

I tried to install the newest firmware (the first time for me) but it hangs up when booting.
I come to the message that the firmware is beeing actualized but the progress bar remains at 0%. 

Any advice would be appreciated!

Thanks a lot

It takes a long time, let it finish. It took mine about 10 minutes to complete successfully.


Well, after 2 hours trying to actualize still no reaction - the progress bar remains at 0%.
Any further idea what I can do?

thanks,

Hi,

I have installed the firmware from b-rad.
I did this by using a small usb stick.

After the installation was completed. The Wd tv live don't recognize my external hdd 2 TB anymore .
I tried the external hdd from my brother and this one works.

When i connect my external hdd 2 TB to my computer everything works fine.

Anyone a solution for my problem?

Many thanx in advance.

So, I installed the latest 0.4.2.2 for my wdtv live, and when I try to play my videos which is all in mkv (matroska) it says "Unable to play the slected file. Please refer to the user manual for a list of supported formats"

I had no problem playin it all before, I access it all through the network on my computer

edit: okay after searchin alot and following instructions how to fix it, "turns out you can play em through network shares" but, then it says when I try to open "There is no media in the current folder"

and I have everything shared that is supose to be shared, but still it doesn't work

second edit: for some reason it all works now, just turned it on and tried to get it work and it works great now of course :)

OK, weirdness ahoy...

Having just built myself a 15TiB file server, I made it available via NFS to hook the WDTVLive to it (I'm using b-rad's latest-1 firmware. I figure I'd wait until I got it right before upgrading the firmware). It took me a little while to get to incantations right on both end of the ethernet cabling, but I eventually had a series of NFS "shares" mounted as local drives.

Except it seems to have had a weird side-effect - when I play a file, the status bar is empty. No "time played", no "total time", no filename/size, and the slider is stuck on "empty".  Files plays OK and seems to be able to be FFed and RWed, but no info displayed. Thinking it might be a quirk in NFS, I tried one of the local USB drives... same deal.

So, no big deal but *really* annoying. (and pulling the plug tonight will probably fix it). But I still want to know the cause.

Can anyone shed any light on WTF happened?

Thanks.

Hello, I recently flashed my WDTV Live with this latest firm ware from B-Rad, however I'm unsure how to access the additional functions it provides.   I read the readme, but it doesn't go into depth.  I apologize in advance if these questions seem n00bish.

How can I access the webgui?
How can I turn on Movie Sheets?
Can the NZB downloader download and extract directly to a connected USB hard drive?
Title: Re: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X
Post by: Buhric on August 20, 2010, 03:28:34 AM
webgui is accessed via a web browser, just type in the IP of the WDTV

Movies sheets can be turned on using the option in the S00cutom-options file, then you need to generate the sheets using templates and an application on your computer... the best so far is TumbGen

NZB can download to a USB drive, but I'm not sure about extracting...

2) the user/password for my shares are not working anymore. They work when I log to the sharing PC.

Any ideas?

Title: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.2.1
Post by: neoculture on August 22, 2010, 05:29:36 PM
So I upgraded my system over the weekend; removed the USB hub and the 5 HDDs and hooked my WDTV to a filerserver.  The setup is now as follows:

- 18TB (14 TiB actual) RAID5 fileserver running ubuntu 10.4, exporting directories through SMB and NFS;
- MythTV running on the fileserver (probably not relevant  ;));
- WDTVLive with b-rad's 4.2.1 firmware, mounting NFS drives locally, with a USB thumbdrive to help the mounting of the NFS drives;

My problem is two-fold;
1) there seems to be a 2-to-5 seconds delay between requesting to play a file and the file actually playing;
2) the customised thumbnails (folder.jpg) for the top-level of each NFS drive is not appearing.

Expanding on (2) - if I have cataloguing turned on, the "local drive" section looks like this:
    +-Anime
    |  +-A
    |  +-B
    +-Movie
    |  +-A
    |  +-B
    +-Music Video
    +-USB1
       +-Anime
       |  +-A
       |  +-B
       +-Movie
       |  +-A
       |  +-B
       + Music Video


If I have cataloguing turned off, it looks as follows:
    +-USB1
       +-Anime
       |  +-A
       |  +-B
       +-Movie
       |  +-A
       |  +-B
       + Music Video


The problem is that while the thumbnails (both folder.jpg and <file>.jpg) for sub-directories and files show up (e.g. 'A', 'B', etc...), the thumbnails for 'Anime', 'Movie' and 'Music Video' stay as the default thumbnails. In both cases. But when the USB HDDs were directly plugged in, the thumbnails turn up correctly.  :(

I also tried mounting the drives as SMB/CIF, but the same problem remains.

 ??? Any ideas? (please, no "access the files via networking" - the idea was to mount the shares locally)

NOTE: I have been perusing historical posts and I think my second problem might be related to the WDTVExt "NoThumb" problem.  Is this correct?  If so, I'm now trying to figure out why it didn't affect me before (mayhaps this is the first firmware with WDTVExt enabled I have encountered.  Who know?)

Hi, sorry for my bad englisch but i try to get a solution here.

After the update all my folder icons I create are not longer visible. They are named folder.jpg
The folder pictures of my foto folder are not shown too.

The film covers, etc. are still ok, but for example the genre folder icons are gone. If I downgrade back everything is ok with the folder icons.

If I rename the folder.jpg to folder_sheet.jpg they are displayed on the left side of the screen but to big !!!
What can I do ???

v0.4.2 and up have a bug where the folder thumbnail will not display for the first 2 folder levels from a "local" drive

And the reason why, when you rename "folder.jpg" to "folder_sheet.jpg" it shows up big on th eleft side is becasue you have MovieSheets activated, and you are in "wall" mode.

"folder_sheet.jpg" is a recognised name for a folder sheet

After installing WDLXTV_Live-0.4.2.2, I think the general speed of moviebrowsing has been decreasing, making moviesheets pop up about half a second slower, it was instantly before...

I wondered if the "Lite" version could fix this?
Edit: The "Minimal" version fixed this, I think I will use this instead of the full version..

BTW: on this page, the newest firmware is 0.4.1.9-6, but on B-rad's it is 0.4.2.2 ...? Is that the same, or?
Edit: The "Minimal" version was only to find in version 0.4.1.9-6, am I missing something on b-rads homepage, or what?

USB HD power - turn off/standby....

After upgrading to b-rad's latest firmware for the live, I noticed the USB drive still has the power light on at the back of the unit (even though the unit seems to spin down.. I think). On the non-modded firmware this powered down and the light on the back of the WD passport turned off.

Any way I can get the USB drive to power off the same as per the original firmware ?

Or, since this is a WLXTV-Live forum, you could also use the "reboot" applet from the main menu or the "reboot" option from the web-page (if, like me, you're cabling is not easy to get to).

Still not working this is what I'm doing.

I'm using firmware version 1.01.24_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.9-6

This is what's in my USB:

S00custom-options (all default settings)
villa_bg.jpg
wdtvlive.bin
wdtvlive.ver

filesize of villa_bg.jpg is 353KB, resolution 1280x720.

I plug the USB thumbdrive into WDTV Live, it reads USB, then on screen appears New Firmware Found. Press Enter, it reboots to install firmware. WDTV logo appears, then it reboots itself. Then Firmware installation loader appears (I can see my custom background in the background) after installation complete it reboots and I remove the USB drive. It boots to main menu but blue wooden panels are still there. What did I miss?

Is it possible to set your own resolution of thumbnail size in S00custom-options?

@eug
Nope you can not set your own size for the thumbnail, you need to use one of the size that S00custom-options proposes

In fact you could use any size you want, but you would need to modify/create the xml files that controls the Menu,
you would be building a new OSD mod.... wich is a lot more complicate that how it sounds...

BTW to change the background, check thw S00custom-options files that come with it....
You now have multiple places where you can store a "new" background.

A while ago, I experimented with creating soft links ("ln -s", for those *nix-minded) to be able to list a video file and its cover picture in several directories at once. My external HD was a 1TB WD Worldbook, formatted as ext3, connected via USB to the WDTV Live  which was running a now-old version of brad-cc's firmware. It worked, but since I was planning on changing the set-up, I didn't take it any further.

Fast-forward a few months and I have built myself a 14TB RAID-5 fileserver running Ubuntu 10.4, running MythTV UpnP out of one NIC and connected to my WDTV Live via a second NIC (the fileserver is being used for other purposes on the network, so I have a dedicated line between the Server and the WDTV to avoid contention). On the WDTV Live end, I have upgrade to brad-cc's latest firmware (turning off most of the features as I'm only interested in the mounting functions) and have mounted the appropriate directories as NFS (*not* SMB) shares. All my video files have been moved to a set of directories on the server in alphabetical order and it all works fine.

Now, I have been writing a little shell-script to read a *.video_data file with information on actors, genre, rating and contents and automatically generate a link between the video file and the appropriate directory (so that, for example, "Alien Hunter" would appear in the "Actor/James Spader", "Genre/Science-Fiction" and "Rating/M" directories).  The script works OK and creates the soft-links without a problem.

HOWEVER - when I access a directory with the soft-links, the WDTV shows the files (with the appropriate thumbnails) but refuses to play them. I get a "cannot render this file" error most of the time, sometimes an "is empty" error.

Changing the script to hard-links fixes it, but it's not as efficient as soft-links. I suppose I could also try to install a UPnP server over the second NIC and play the files through it, but I'd probably loose things like chapter information.

Caveats:
I do not want the WDTV on the main router (192.168.0.*) - I want to keep it on its own network (192.168.1.*).
I do not want to watch the movies through the "Network" option of the WDTV (which has its own problems with thumbnail files) - the idea is to mount the shares as local drives.

Can anybody help?  :-[

The way you are accessing the WebFrontEnd should alrady have a keyboard of some type...
And theres a virtual remote in there, so you can control the WDTV ....

Now if you where talking about the OSD (On Screen Display), which is the WDTV Menu
Yes, support for a USB keyboard, would be great.... the Live plus already has one.....
So I'm pretty sure we will see support very soon.... even sooner if we support the devloper(s).

Title: Weird bug
Post by: neoculture on October 28, 2010, 03:16:33 PM

I am using b-rad's 4.2.2 firmware for the WDTV Live (not Plus) and I came across a weird event in the last week or so:

My WDTV is connected to a fileserver via a wired network (Gigabit, but the WDTV-Live only goes up to 100Mb). The fileserver exports the video files in a variety of ways: SMB, NFS and via the MythTV uPnP server. At the moment, I am using the SMB mounts rather than the NFS mounts as there is a weird bug with WDTV and soft links, which I can make go away under SMB with the appropriate voodoo incantations... er, SMB parameters. They are mounted via b-rad's net.mounts config file and I have a single 4MB USB thumb-drive mounted on the WDTV to provide a mount-point for the shares.

So far, so good.

However, when I power-up the WDTV from standby, the USB light comes on, the mounts appear *but* the thumbnails do not appear in the dir/file listings from the mounts - only the default thumbnail pictures.  This includes those past the known "top-two level" bug. When I try to play a file, the WDTV either freezes (requiring me to reboot it), or tells me the file is empty.

Another symptom is that when I go into the plug-in section, it keeps on telling me that I need to add a ".whatever" directory to my USB key... which I already have.

All of the above goes away if (after bringing the box out of standby) I then reboot it - either via the plug-in option, the web page or by the old power-cycle.

So, overall, not insurmountable but annoying as hell.

Any thoughts?

try upgrading to v0.4.3.1 and see if the bugs still persist,

you can get it here:
http://forum.wdlxtv.com/viewforum.php?f=10 (http://forum.wdlxtv.com/viewforum.php?f=10)
make sure you select the correct one...

has for the file playing, are those by any chance MKVs?

"new" MKVs uses header compression which is not yet supported by the WDTV (well WD has a beta firmware that supports it, but custom are based on released not betas) and they cause to either
freeze the WDTV,
make it so that you can not play any other movies after trying the MKV, power cycle resolves the problem

has for the file playing, are those by any chance MKVs?

"new" MKVs uses header compression which is not yet supported by the WDTV (well WD has a beta firmware that supports it, but custom are based on released not betas) and they cause to either
freeze the WDTV,
make it so that you can not play any other movies after trying the MKV, power cycle resolves the problem

Thanks for the pointer, I'll try it out.

In answer to your question; yes, those were MKVs but, as I pointed out, I don't get the problem if I reboot the machine *immediately* after bringing it out of sleep-mode (i.e., before playing any files).

Weird.

If I upgraded to the latest pre release firmware from WD, will I need to downgrade to install this firmware?
Title: Re: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X
Post by: Buhric on November 07, 2010, 04:30:13 PM
well, the latest release of the custom firmware is based on the official release v1.02.21

So yes, since you have v1.03.xx now, by installing the custom your will be downgrading to v1.02.21....

Post by: andyd on November 07, 2010, 04:40:32 PM
Ok thanks.  I'm ok with downgrading.  It's more if I have to since the WDTV isn't picking up the custom firmware
Title: Re: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X
Post by: Buhric on November 07, 2010, 05:35:40 PM
in order to downgrade the WDTV, you need to "trick" it into thinking the firmware you want to install is a version higher then whats already installed....

you will need to edit the .ver file and change the version # to 1 higher than what the WDTV is reporting in the "About" menu
if "About" menu of WDTV says
Firmware Version: 1.03.48

you will need to modify the .ver file from:
VERSION='1.02.21.WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.3.1'
to
VERSION='1.03.49.WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.3.1'

don't worry, that number change will not actualy change the version of the firmware that will be installed.
this will just trick the WDTV to think that the firmware you want to install is higher than what you currently have,
thus letting you install it....

Once the firmware is flashed, it will display the correct version, and if USB with modified .VER file is still plugged in, it will tell you that theres a "New firmware" available... since the .ver is still showing a version higher than whats actualy installed...
Best way to confirm if firmware was installed is to check the "About" menu in the WDTV "System Settings"

Also What I recommend to do, if you have a beta version installed,
1. please reset to factory settings,
2. downgrade to official WD release (same way... modding the .ver file)
3. reset to factory settings again
4. install custom firmware that is based on the Official WD release you just downgraded to
5. configure settings to your liking..

You might not need to do all of this... but I beleive its safer like this...

That did it - thanks!

Question - does this firmware support folder.jpgs > 70kb?  On WD's forum, someone there mentioned that my folder.jpgs need to be less than < 70kb for the images to appear
Title: Re: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X
Post by: Buhric on November 07, 2010, 08:17:21 PM
actualy. nope as far has I know theres no restriction on the size of a thumbnail...

I have "folder.jpg" that are 691x1023 @ 202KB, and they are still displaying correctly
the reason is that the WDTV takes the file and resizes it to its dimensions and stores them in an internal cache that gets flushed when you power cycle the WDTV.

So thats the main reason that thumbs takes a while to display if you just power cycled the WDTV, since it needs to load the image and then resize it....
If you where to keep your thumbnails at the file size / dimension that the WDTV uses, I guess it would be faster to load them...

I know that B-Rad and cie are working on a way to have a mor "permanent" cache for the thumbs so that they load faster...


The only restriction that the WDTV has on thumbnails is that it does not like JPG saved in "progrsssive" mode...
some JPG on web pages are saved in that way, you notice them very easly since you will see a very low resolution image that will get sharper has the image loads.

try upgrading to v0.4.3.1 and see if the bugs still persist,

you can get it here:

make sure you select the correct one...

Hopefully WD will release a firmware that supports it, and the custom will follow soon after...

you can fix the header compression by re-merging the mkv with mkvmerge.  change compression to none on the video and audio tracks and remerge and it will allow it to play on the wdtv with no errors.
you will find that most of the newer rips have this compression.  for me its about 1 out of every 3.

npoe since new BEta is made by WD, and they don't support sheet.... for sheet you need custoom firmware...

and custom firmware is base on official (not beta) firmware...

So will need to wait till WD decides to make theyre Beta official....
then wait a bit more for B-Rad and company to "customise" it

IF you use a WDLXTV that's based on either the 1.03 or 1.04 firmware, at the loss of WDTVExt.  That bug still remains in any WDLXTV based on 1.02 and cannot be fixed.

I installed the 1.03.49_V-WDLXTV-Live-0.4.5.3 Firmware yesterday. It's pretty good. Before I had some playback problems with some files, but after the update, they are all running well. The Apple trailers are gone now, but ok.

Other Problem. MovieSheets are no longer working. I enabled them in the S00_CustomOptions Files but i wont work. Everything esle is working. xMount is fine, YouTube HD too, but no sign of MovieSheets.

Does anybody has an answer? It still has to be Movie.mkv and Movie.mkv_sheet.jpg (std view) right?

edit:
Ok. I think it's because of the missing WDTVExt. I have read that i have to use Linksheet to get moviesheets to work. I enabled Linksheets like in the wdlxtv wiki but still not working.

Hold on!  So I lose moviesheets but gain header compression?   Must find out about linksheets or stay put at current version?

Hi, I've been reading a lot about how to go about betting my WDTV Live loaded up with Brad's firmware and have a question before I begin.

I'm a little confused about all of the different versions mentioned in posts.

Is 0.4.1.9-6 the same as the most recent listed here: http://forum.wdlxtv.com/viewforum.php?f=61

What is the difference between the 1.02.21 and 1.03.49 releases?

Thanks a ton for the help.

Post by: Buhric on February 27, 2011, 06:23:42 PM
to see the fulle differences between 1.02 and 1.03
see Western Digital official release notes.

Most noted differences is that in 1.03.xx, DVD menus are aupported, and the MKV header compression bug is fixed.

Also in custom firmwares that are based on v1.02.xx are the only ones that support WDTVExt plugins.
the others does not.

for what is the difference between the custom firmwares, take a look at the release notes
note that standard (or std) Sheet mode as a bug on v0.4.5.3

Thank you!  This might mean:  that's why I am having issues.  I am using 1.02.21_WDLXTV.COM_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.5.3 and having a heck of time getting moviesheets to work.

Well, i updated to the flash version of 1.03.49.  Sucks that i know longer have movie sheets
Title: Re: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X
Post by: Buhric on March 23, 2011, 06:16:18 PM
it still has movie sheets, but you need to activate the "linksheets" script.... and de-activate WDTVExt Plugin extension...

config_tool -c WDTVEXT=OFF
config_tool -c LINKSHEETS=ON

or via the Web Interface...

and If you are using a extboot version of the firmware... you can not unplug the drive while using the WDTV....
the WDTV is running the firmwar form the drive... now most probably the image is corrupted...

Big idiot here ;D  I flashed to 1.02.21.  So i needed  to config_tool -c WDTVEXT=ON, config_tool -c LINKSHEETS=OFF. 

I guess i ned to buy a small usb flash drive for future versions of extboot.  I would like compression support and i've already converted to wall mode in the moviesheets.  Thanks again for your patience and help.

I am currently running: 1.02.21.WDLXTV_Live-0.4.2.0

What happened to the 1.02 branch?

It seems that 1.01.24_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.9-6 is the most recently developed custom firmware. Is this right?

If so, I'd like to "upgrade". I've tried but the WDTVLive it doesn't appear to pick the new firmware files. I assume this is because of the version number in the .ver file?

Thanks, but there is no readme file. I know how to edit the .ver file but I think that wouldn't have helped in this case. Like others I was a bit confused by the versions! 1.01.24_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.9-6 is not the most recent firmware, though with the strikethrough on the first post to this thread I assumed it was.

folder.jpg is the name the Firmware look for to show as a thumbnail for folders.
moviename.jpg is the file name it looks for to display the thumbnail of the movie....

Now it all depends on how your movies are sorted in your computer....

If you have a movie per folder.... then to display the folder thumb, you will need a "folder.jpg", in each movie folder
If all your movies are in the same folder, then you can have one "folder.jpg" and all "moviename.jpg" o display the thumbnails

good to know, but I really liked it better when moviename.jpg would display the thumbnail for the folder. All my media is accessed through the network. Each of my movies are in their own separate folder and the movie and jpg are labeled the same thing. I really don't want to go through thousands of jpgs and rename them. In the earlier firmware releases I was able to label the jpgs the same as the movie and it worked perfectly fine.

Post by: neoculture on June 08, 2011, 03:40:06 PM
In the earlier firmware releases I was able to label the jpgs the same as the movie and it worked perfectly fine.

Sounds like there may have been a change in the "official" software then. Originally, the thumbnail bit worked as follow:
1) for a movie (say, moviename.avi) the software looked for "moviename.jpg" and used that to display the movie thumbnail.
2) for a folder, the software would first look for "folder.jpg" in that folder and then, if it hadn't found one, would use the first *.jpg it found in the folder.  So you didn't actually need a "folder.jpg" if you were happy with the folder display whatever thumbnail was found.

From what you are saying, it appears the behaviour for (2) has been modified to only look for "folder.jpg".  If that is so, I haven't noticed it as I always have a folder.jpg for each folder, regardless of what (or how much) is in them.

i think you're 100% right. I actually never noticed if it was just looking for the very first jpg in the folder, but I always put one jpg in a folder with my movie and I always labeled it exactly the same as the movie and it always worked. Why would they change that functionality? Being able to show my images in the thumbnail view was one of my favorite features of the wdtv. I really don't want to change every image to be named folder.jpg  :(  Is there any way I can trick the wdtv into thinking the jpgs are all labeled folder.jpg? I would revert back to an old version of the firmware, but I upgraded my server (where all my movies are located) to Win 7 64-bit and unfortunately that doesn't work with the old versions. Thanks for your help!

Hi there,
i got a small issue with the custom firmware and the search option didn't help me

Official Firmware:

Navigate through "Video" --> "Local files" you get the "Folders" option by default

Custom Firmware:

Navigate through "Video" --> "Local files" you get the "All video" option by default

This is quite inconvenient if you are using sheets


How can I change the default browsing order?

any idea if b-rad's new firmware will display folder thumbnails even if the image inside the folder is not labeled folder.jpg (when viewing a shared drive)? All my thumbnails are labeled the same as the movie name. One of the biggest features I miss from before the Windows 7 fix was released was being able to see my folder icons. Thanks s much for all your hard work!

The mechanism to display folder thumbs is part of the closed dmaosd provided by WD, not much we can do about that...

aw, bummer, thanks for the reply though. Are people really renaming their thumbnails to folder.jpg ? Is there any suggestion someone can give about fixing this problem? I really don't want to go through and rename 1000+ jpgs  :-(

have to test again:

For ages had b-rads older 1.03.49_V_WDLXTV.COM_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.7.3 but actual dvd movies only play to 1st chapter then quit..
-- > thats all fixed..


Installed latest and thought lost usb2 optical drive reading..  If you burned to dvd called NEW and the new dvdr inserted = called NEW

then its not picked up - new inserted dvdr..  hmmm - older wdlx  = used to see a difference.. Mounted then unmounted - then new mounted.. ok- used to have dupe in wdhdtvlive for a few seconds..  hardly an issue..

Old Nero Burning Rom used to call everything burned dvdr called "new"..

Will try B-rads upgrade again tomorrow when sober..

note:

Have 2 external usb dvd dual layer drives, and some dvdrs written work with one drive and not the the other. ??
Wish I always used r05 dye single layers :(  older b-rad firmware I used =
can hotplug usb different manufactureres optical drives and no wdhdtvlive reboot.. =  recognize..

Most missed facility of wdhdtvlive = optical drives.. dvds and burned to dvdr media etc .. Thanks b-rad - anyway 
ya made it work more than it should do.. ;)

what popcorn hour?

[edit]  wrong install.. 1.02.21_WDLXTV.COM_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.7.3 reinstalled - works it again.

Should never get drunk :(

Hi Guys,

I will be installing firmware version WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.9-6 on my WD Live Player. I assume i copy files onto a USB stick and power up the WD player? Do i need to modify any file before i update? S something file i have seen mentioned here.

Now, have not done this well before, so bear with me.

I want to have movie sheets, and stream movies from a NAS Box. Also want to use YouTube on the WD Player.

Is there much i have to do other then install the update and get thumbnail gen going?

Where should i bee looking for this info for beginners? I tried reading through the 67 pages of this post, but go completely lost..

Thanks in advance..

Hello everybody!
I am quite new to this firmware, but I would like to make some slight modifications. I have programming skills, but I would like to ask here before I try to do something impossible. Of course I will share the result :)

I am trying to make a super fast firmware, as clena as possible. I just need to play the HDMI o Video output (doesn't really matter which, but up to today I rather use video output instead of HDMI). I don't need sound or any other thing, just to autoplay in autoloop mode the file inside a USB drive. I would like to control the on-screen to show a simple text or logo and to play the file (h.264) as quick as possible.

How does it sound to you?

It may sound stupid to have only that feature, but for me it is important. I hope you understand it!

Best,
Diego

Forgive me if this was covered but just so many forums....I have a NEW WDTV unit, firmware 1.03.10 (latest)....can I just download the latest WDLXTV firmware to do all this cool stuff, copy to USB, reboot...etc... and all is good OR do I need to downgrade to earlier firmware first to install the WDLXTV firmware? Hoping I am understanding that the latest units are able to do this and not just the older previous models?

thx!

This will help you
http://wiki.wdlxtv.com/Main_Page
When you try and install the custom firmware there are a few things you/we need to know
What firmware do you have now on the WDTV?
What firmware version are you trying to install?

When you say you have a WDTV Live, please know that there are 4 of those
the Live first gen
the Live Plus
the Live Hub and
the Live Streaming

The last two can't be customized.

Ok cool well im running 1.06.15 and am trying to install firmware 1.01.24_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.9-6. It has not been working all times I tried it. Thank You So Much for your help!

Well, 1.01.24_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.9-6 is certainly not the latest.  You can get the latest here:
http://wiki.wdlxtv.com/Main_Page#Download

Then to install you will need to edit the *.ver file with a new version number.  Check the "Downgrading" here:

I just got the firmware installed but when I use putty to setup the web... I input root, hit enter, then hit enter again for the password and it says... Login incorrect.
I can get in through my web page but I can't configure it. I was able to install the apps only.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, I have it working now.

I keep seeing on the net that the WDTV Live can scrape IMDB info but I can't figure out how. I have tried searching but all I see is that it is being done. I have searched the menu on the WDLXTV -Live and I can't find a option for it... Does it just do it automatically?

Ever since I got the new WD Live Stream I understood that there wasn't a custom firmware. Has this change at all. If so where can I get the DL. Also any ideas when they will allow DTS-HD-MA to be player on the WD Players. It's pretty annoying that it gets downmixed
Title: Re: WDLXTV-LIVE-0.4.X
Post by: RavRob on June 02, 2013, 12:25:31 PM
Not something you can flash like the Live gen1 or the Live + but you can run it from a thumb drive and get pretty good result as I understand.  It is still being developed though so there could be still some bugs.

Read on it and download here

I'm just flabbergasted as to why there aren't more USB wireless adapters that work with the damned thing. Does WDLXTV offer more support for newer devices? The old ones listed on the "compatible list" are all crap. I have no way of hard wiring it even with AV plugs as the throughput is absolutely horrendous.
