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

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

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

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

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

There's no stupid question !

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

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

Thanks

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

Do I need to stick the USB into wdtv at all the time to make this mod work? or just one time installation?

Thanks

Thanks lilibabe, looks very nice. I noticed that all folders have a roundish transparency to them that goes over pictures. Is there any way to change this so that the covers are not effected?

Hi Everyone,

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

Thanks

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

It works perfekt on my WD TV.

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

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

Thanks

unfortunately i lack the knowledge to do so. Is there maybe a guide somewhere that I could use to accomplish this task?
