@dnicks: I see now... yeah, I was thinking in terms of 'old' MSheet... that makes perfect sense
Ok, no more from me so I don't fill Titi's whole thread up before he gets back... ::)

new app is looking great ..... but have a couple of questions
i have approx 600 movies and have been using the MS sheet generator with aeon basic template to produce 1280x720 sheets. and it seems all the sheet generators here create 1280x720 images

this latest app wants either 1280x460 sheets or 500x720 for wall mode .... my question is where have these sheets been generated/created ?  i have seen a template posted by dnicks  but can someone tell me what program i need to download/install.

and would i be right in thinking it would be two different programs - one for 1280x460 sheets and one for 500x720 sheets

or have i missed a thread somewhere ?

great work Titi!



Will the wall view poster thumb work with folders?  i already copied the _wall to the a folder containing 500*720 posters but its still being displayed as 1280 * 720 .

@dnicks

thanx   but have also come across this thread
http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=4544.msg34123#msg34123

aydee has a template working with MSG  ...... although MSG still created a 1280x720 jpg  .... have asked him to clarify how he got the 1290x459 images in his demo folders

are there any templates for the 500x720 sheets or is this something tvixie needs to be modified to do ?

@tsa4d, go back to the thread you provided in that link.  go to the first page. all the info is there on how to modify tvixie to create the 1280x459 sheets and 500x720 sheets. yes, tvixie does need to be modified, but it's fairly simple.  MSG won't create anything other than 1280x720.  
on page 1 of this (msheet 2.1.0) thread there is a 500x720 template i made.
the 1280x459 templates are in the thread where you'll get directions from (Cylents modified msheet).  if you still need help, send me a pm and i'll walk you through it.
Here

To use this template with TViXie follow 'dnicks' guide here:

Big Cover Template (500x720) Full package download : Template,Msheet Mod,Demos,Demo Video
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?m0jmdjttijm
All above templates are for TViXie.
remember, you'll only need the template from these links the msheet files were done before the new msheet was released, so you don't need them.

@dnicks: to used the 500x720 template, so i just have to change the model.xml as below:
line4:     <Background FileName="wd_tv.jpg">
line5:       <Width>500</Width>
line6:      <Height>720</Height>

right? what about line 9 & 10?

yes, that's correct.  for lines 9 and 10, just set it to whatever size thumbs you use.  you can modify any of the models in that list and name them whatever you like.  then in tvixie if you go to tools, options you set the model to the name of the one for 500x720 sheets.  i have a different model for 1280x459,1280x720, and 500x720.

@tsa4d, by the way, using MSG would work for you, but the whole reason for using 459 is to keep the black screens from showing up.  using this setting all the sheets display properly.

Hi All,

With this new version of MSheet i am getting some overscan problems at the bottom of the screen. My TV has overscan with cannot be disabled (sadly) which means that i am missing about an inch off each side of the screen.

This hasn't been a problem before because the filenames have been above the thumbnails. But not the filenames are at the bottom of the screen which means i cannot see the filename properly.

Does anyone know how i can amend the location of the filename txt? Or adjust the whole screen upwards?

Thanks in anticipation.

@Lister, i have the same problem.  not sure why there's not an option on my tv to correct this.  i modified the titles back up to above the thumbs and moved the thumbs up and squeezed them together a bit.  all looks good for me.  give me a little while and i'll upload my version for you and post it here :)

not sure if this is the right place for this but here goes

i have my WDTV  and as noted above  will have latest wdlxtv firmware
my usb device will have MS 2.1.0 in the root and all my movies in genre folders

my girlfriend has just bought a WDTV Live  with just the latest official firmware  ....... if i take over my usb drive and plug it into her unit will the MS 2.1.0 files create a problem ?  i know none of the _sheets will be visible but all the folder jpgs should be ok

just dont want to end up knackering her WDTV Live  .... or my drive for that matter

hmmmm maybe i should've started a compatability thread

I wouldn't have thought it would cause any problems. The WDTV Live will be able to see the other "Msheet" files but it wouldn't stop you from playing the video files.
