Hello WDTV community,

Therefore, I am  setting out to start building theme packs and eventually make folder icons for popular TV Series and build a collection of Movie Thumbnails.

Hi. Whats supposed to be done with these images? Its not too obvious, except for the two images named as osd images. I'm going to finish writing a theming tutorial tonight (been planned for long time), using that I'd like to see you make some actual themes that are plug-n-play useable.

--edit-- nm, i read your nfo and see they are custom folder icons. nice :)

Also whats up with the kooks track in each archive? Need padding for it to count? ;)

Thanks very much for your hard work reaverxai.
I like that MacBlue theme a lot :)
Perhaps you could write a small tutorial on how to create these themes, to allow other to follow in your footsteps? :)

How do you put a theme in the WD TV. I've looked at the menus no choice for changing themes and screen-savers/ Do these only work with Custom Firmware?

To use the backgrounds and screen savers you will need to be using B-RAD's WDLXTV Firmware, located here:

http://b-rad.cc/843/wdlxtv-enhanced-wdtv-firmware-052

Then you can follow this quick tutorial to change it:

(The first few steps are irrelevant)

Added a series of TV Show icons, enjoy!

Nice job b-rad, i just finished reading your tutorial. But what about doing the same with the original fw ? Your tutorial does not address this point (cheksum,...).
If you appreciate my work and want to contribute, feel free to donate at http://wdtv.free.fr/

Great icon set. Congratulations. i am currently using your icon for all my recorded shows, but I have a request. Can you please add "Flashpoint" to your collection. It's the only one that I am missing... thank you in advance.
