WDTV GUIDE (and with tips for OSX Lion)

This guide contains tips for an instantaneous get-up-to-speed for new users.  It is also a way to thank the wonderful people who made the WDTV what it is today.  It contains a walkthrough to:

a Homebrewing  b Streaming  c Snazzing up the graphics d Only for non-newbies


MESSAGE FOR THE WISE

You must apply this guide to a WDTV Gen. 1.  All other WDTV owners may use this guide concerning all Windows/Mac applications, but all references to WDTV firmwares, mods, and apps would not be advised nor functional.  WDTV Gen. 2 and WDTV Live owners should refer to the correct forum subsections for available packages.

Preface

I test streaming applications with a wireless setup and therefore my speed ratings may under-represent what can be achieved with an Ethernet connection.

I use mainly UPnP as it is a 'Zero Configuration' technology for which many services are appearing right now.  See below for instructions if your WDTV is not connected to the internet.

Audio Settings

The WDTV Gen. 1 down-muxes AAC, AC3, but not DTS.  If you cannot hear the audio please set the Settings, Audio/Video, Audio output to Stereo.  In case you are playing a DTS file you will need a DTS-capable AV Receiver. 

Otherwise, if you run OSX then use MKV Tools, Subler (MP4), or AVI Tools to convert the Audio Stream.

http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/31647/subler
http://www.emmgunn.com/avitools/avitoolshome.html

Header Compression

The WDTV Gen. 1 cannot play video files with compressed audio or video header such as those created with Matroska.  Playing any such file will freeze the WDTV, so you will need to reset the WDTV (sometimes leaving it unplugged for some time) and delete the .wd-tv folder on the hard drive.

If you run OSX then use MKV Tools to detect and remove Header Compression
http://www.emmgunn.com/mkvtools/mkvtoolshome.html

You may remux the files with header compression turned off. (thanks to RoofingGuy)


Problems Playing MP4 Video Files

The WDTV Gen. 1 cannot play MP4 video files with multiple Audio Tracks, or even any Subtitle Track in the MP4 wrapper.  Playing any such file will freeze the WDTV, so you will need to reset the WDTV (sometimes leaving it unplugged for some time) and delete the .wd-tv folder on the hard drive.

If you run OSX then use Subler to detect and remove the additional tracks.
http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/31647/subler

You may unmux the files and keep a simple wrapping consisting of:  Video + 1 Audio in order for the movies to become playable again.


Chapter:  a) Homebrewing
Chapter notes:  The Usb key has to remain plugged into the WDTV when on, it has to be named with standard letters and no spaces (try WDTV), it must not have hidden partitions such as U3.

1st things first:  The Prep

The USB Stick

1 Buy a sizeable USB stick and remove U3 partition (if it has one).  For example with Sandisk you need to use "cruzer-utilities-mac.dmg"
http://communities.sandisk.com/sandisk/board/message?board.id=u3&thread.id=1066

2 Format the stick in FAT32 using Disk Utility (find it in Spotlight)

3 Download and place on the stick:

a WDLXTV enhanced WDTV firmware 0.5.8.1 http://b-rad.cc/1036/wdlxtv-enhanced-wdtv-firmware-0-5-8-1/

b WDLXTV App pack: core-extras.app.bin-0.2 http://b-rad.cc/374/wdlxtv-app-pack-core-extras/

c Optware for WDTV http://b-rad.cc/optware-for-wdtv/

4 Flash your new HOMEBREW firmware by:

a Changing the version number on wdtv.ver to any higher number using TextEdit.  You can then follow the official firmware guide:  http://www.wdc.com/en/products/WDTV/

b See if it loads WDlxTV

5 Remove wdtv.bin and wdtv.ver from the USB stick and reboot

6 Done

Notes  
Ease of Installation= 7
TROUBLESHOOTING:  If your homebrew firmware does not load, see the following checklist:  
1 reinstall FAT32
2 change the name of the drive, no spaces
3 did you remove U3 partitions
4 only place wdtv.bin and wdtv.ver on stick and check version number +1
5 install on other usb plug
6 unplug the power
7 press the reset pin on the side
8 repeat a few times

If you get stuck at the WDTV Logo, you may want to reinstall the Original Firmware and then reinstall the Homebrew Firmware.

It is quite difficult to Brick the WDTV, so do not get scared right away...

2a If you have other dongles
Unfortunately, there are many different packages out there, so you will have to do your homework and find out on this forum if somebody has a solution ready for your chipset.  See the following:  http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=59.0 & http://wdtvforum.com/main/index.php?topic=1232.0 or search the forum for other threads.

3 Place the text file on the USB stick and connect it to the WDTV

4 Connect Ethernet Cable to your Router OR 4a Connect Ethernet cable to a wireless device such as an Airport Express

Great job on these guides. I think it would be good to make this a sticky and maybe change the title a bit, like shorten it? :P There are so many questions and answers asked over and over again, this would certainly help with this repetition (at least a little  ;D).

Thanks Japaja  ;)

Well if the mods make it a sticky that's ok by me  ;D

On my part I will try to keep it up to date.

Thanks for the vote!

In terms of your Belkin you have to do your research in terms of finding what the guts of the key are and see if anybody has succeeded in getting it to work.  See below for a wiki

Unfortunately, there are many different packages out there... :)

Best of luck
