http://b-rad.cc/juliojs-osd.app.bin

this is an example of a dynamic, memory loaded theme. Since theres only a few xml files & some small images you can do this no problem.

What it means is once its loaded you may remove the device containing the theme and it will persist when you use the power button on the remote. The theme lasts until you power cycle / reboot your wdtv.

I like the larger icons on the home screen.

I'd like to start testing some of my own theme ideas, but first i want to look at this one. Am I just to copy the files onto my HDD and update the firmware?
Thanks I'll post my ideas once I get them working.

So I added the files to my HDD and started the upgrade after 45 min of nothing but a black screen I assumed something went wrong. So I disconnect power and HDD, reloaded the original firmware and it reset.

So what was with the black screen for so long? Is it because I have 400gb of media? It usually loads it up in under 10sec.
Can anyone else confirm that they got this OSD mod to work.

Thanks,
KJake

I have modified the official firmware with my mod and attached the osd.bin created by b-rad for use it with WDLXTV.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=VTFLWBTD

With this .zip you can use my mod with any firmware:

-Official: You don't need to use a pendrive.
-WDLXTV: You need to turn on with the osd.bin in a pendrive but later you can remove it. (Thank you b-rad)
-Ext3-boot: You must to keep the pendrive connected to WDTV always.

(see readme.txt)

Many thanks and praises to you!

Working fine for me.  Used the WDLXTV firmware version.

No, WDTV auto translates the menus. The only problem on my mod is that the "Vídeo" title is with "í" instead "i". I will fix it...

Hi Julio, nice work!!!
Just one question, i notice that the thumbs are larger witch is great. Do they keep de original resolution (120 x 180) and are extended to the new one, or does this OSD allow thumbs with native higher resolution.
Best regards from Portugal.

With my mod the thumbnail resolution is 162x230. You can check it putting the same thumbnail two times with (120x180) and (162x230) resolutions. You should see the 162x230 thumnail better than 120x180.

Regards!
