The appletrailerfs links seems to be wrong (or is it Opera that is confused?). :-)

Maybe we should move this to the wiki at http://wiki.wdtv.org/doku.php, there its easier to edit and not dependent on any one person.

I think it's time to update the startpost of this topic.

Update needed regarding latest version for:
# WDLXTV 0.5.6.1
# Appletrailerfs 0.3.3.1
creator: elmarweber
http://appletrailerfs.elmarweber.org/

Also adding these would be helpfull:
# Weather & RSS - Webserver addons v0.2
creator: redindian
website: http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=1667.0

# YouTube
creator: elmarweber
http://wdtv.elmarweber.org/

# Shoutcast
creator: elmarweber
website: http://wdtv.elmarweber.org/?s=shoutcast

Hope to get update:
I hope that a new version will come for the shoutcast application because I can't seem to get the stations played. I see the station names under the categories however I can't open the stations because the filetype is not supported.

what do you mean with homebrew 'channel' ? I also don't think this is the right topic to request to create a application for the WDTV.

Maybe put all this in a spreadsheet? one each for the wdtv1 and the wdtv2..

I'm still confused about the use of Usb Hubs on wdtv1 ...and which firmware to use..
presently using wdtvlx 0.05? Uncertain, as I left my wdtv on my gulfstream   ::)

I'm having a problem to identify the FW that applies to my player.

in the web-front-end my player is identified like this:

Device: WDLXTV_LIVE
FW Base: 1.05.04
Current version: 0.5.1.1

looking at the post I believe what is called "current version" should rather be called "current FW version", correct?

so in the post I can see FWs newer than 0.5.1.1, however I can't find any FW Base-info, so I wonder if version 0.5.3.2 works for me.

it looks like as if my player can't cope with the recent mp4-files. it either locks up requiring a power OFF/ON cycle or jumps scenes etc. I came across a post that says that this problem was solved with a FW upgrade, however lacking the details of such upgrade.



With an expanding number of the modification files available for use with the WDTV, I thought I would start to try and index them, so here you are, a WDTV Custom Firmware Database, which I will try to keep as up to date as possible.

Note: I do not make any claims that these are completely up to date. I will try to keep this as updated as possible, but checking the source site is the easiest way to make sure you have the latest version.

WDTV Firmware Database

Ext3-boot
Version: 0.9.2
Download | Web
Quote
ext3-boot writes a modified boot manager to the WDTV. During bootup this will read the main (custom) firmware file from a connected memory stick or disk. As such, it doesn't have the memory limitations of permanently flashed firmware, and contains more add-on packages included in the release. You need to keep the storage with the firmware file permanently inserted in the WDTV though (to be confirmed - at least you need it inserted on every reboot). Most upgrades can be done by updating the firmware file on external storage, without needing to re-flash the WDTV.

DVDMOD
Version: 0.5.3.2
Download | Web
Quote
DVDMOD is a custom unofficial firmware for the Western Digital WDTV, which adds optical drive (cd/dvd drives) and extra filesystem support. I have remixed all official firmware releases and added cdrom support via cd-manager. Yes, this means you can boot with a usb dvd drive connected and play from it on your WDTV now.

WDLXTV
Version: 0.5.3.2
Download | Web
Quote
WDLXTV is a souped up unofficial firmware for the Western Digital WDTV. It is based off of the 1.02.07 firmware, but with many extra features. Similar to my dvdmod firmware, this is a permanent flash, just like an official upgrade. This firmware is an option for those whos hardware is stable with Zoranders ext3-boot, or those who donít do much firmware programming to take advantage of ext3-boot.

Device: WDLXTV_LIVE
FW Base: 1.05.04
Current version: 0.5.1.1
You are showing firmware for Live or Live plus but you are asking if a firmware dated back to 09 is more current then what you have now...The live didn't yet exist in 09.  What you are comparing to now is the firmware for the Gen1 1.02.07 WDLXTV 0.5.3.2
So, no, it is not newer.  That machine is no longer supported by WD and not sure if B-rad still supports it.

IF you have a live you have 2 choices.  1.05.04 WDLXTV 0.5.1.1 or 1.02.21 WDLXTV 0.5.1.1.....both have the newest version of WDLXTV for the Base firmware you wish to use.
Windows 7 Ultimate with SP1
WDTV Live
1.02.21 WDLXTV 0.5.1.4 (Beta)
Linksys - WUSB600N USB Adapter
DLink - Dir-655 Router
Atheros - AR8131 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20)
