      a file called emergency-flash on the root of a device at boot
* Custom background and screen saver images can be supplied at boot
   * requires welcome_background_bg.jpg (maxsize=524288) or screen_saver.png to exist on a device attached at boot
   * original screen_saver & welcome_background are supplied, in case you desire them.
* A custom configuration script can be supplied to enable/disable/whatever at boot
   * requires a script called S00custom-options on the root of a device attached at boot
* OSD overlays must be named as follows:  <label>.osd.bin   example:  myoverlay.osd.bin  (sample)
* added another 5s wait for slow devices to come online at boot.
* no benign shell errors when booting on the serial tty
* reboot now sync's & (attempts to) umount devices before rebooting

0.5
* based on firmware 1.02.06


Be careful with S00user-script in /conf, as I say a typo in there will prevent the osd from loading. The proper route would be to get it working as S00custom-options on the root of an attached device, then when that works move it into /conf

if you break yourself with a bad /conf/S00user-script then place the following inside of S00custom-options:

--- Code: ---#!/bin/sh
rm /tmp/init.d/S00user-script
--- End code ---

When turning off the WD TV with the remote controller, will HDD spindown if a process (Transmission, for example) is writing to it ?

I suppose not, but...

Thanks for your firmware development!!  It's great!!

I found a problem with the file system. When my hard drive formatted as ext3, the subtitle won't come out automatically. If the same drive formatted as FAT32, that problem won't existed. But FAT32 file system will have another limit which is a single file can't be 4GB more.

No subtitle problem here.
Please check in "Video settings": there is a new option to switch subtitles on-off by default
