Hey gang, this should be a quick fix, probably in the xml.

In WDlxTV, when I've got something selected with the remote, there is a blue overlay. However, in ext3-boot, it's merely a bigger font. How would I go about changing that back to a blue overlay?

It's the same here.
I prefer ext3-boot to avoid flashing too often, (to reduce risk of bricking the box). I wonder if/when Zorander could update this little wonder to the latest 1.02.08 prerelease (I know it's only two days old :))
If possible, it would be wonderful if it has the blue overlay (in the selected item in list view).

(Off Topic. It would be very good, if it's possible, to enable USB hub support, as it appears to have been removed from the official firmware (I hope it's only a regression issue, and be enabled in the next release)
 
For now, I have modified the selected text to be yellow, in my 0.9.2-1.02.07 ext3-boot, following the "quick and dirty hacks" how-to in the wdtv wiki. It helps to see what file you are selecting.

Thanks rezmus,
Replacing the xml file worked, but it goes back to default firmware limit in the number of character per line being shown on screen.

I think there is a better solution, to keep the way list are shown in the modified firmware. Seeing the zorander's ext3-boot xml file, there is a missing image that should be named "browser_list_btn.long.png"
If I can figure out what should be the correct image width, I will try to modify the existing one (browser_list_btn.png) to cover all the line width.

Thanks. I have done it myself.
The only thing you need is open the existing browser_list_btn.png, and make an identical image, but this time with 980x51 pixels (the original one is 719x51), and save it as browser_list_btn_long.png
The image editing it's a simple cut&paste issue.

Would you be willing to attach yours to the forum to make future googlers have an easier time changing it?

I am attaching mine. It's the same but not stretched in the edges. Also it's smaller: 16 KB.

Here it is too: http://imgur.com/8pcj5.png

Just in case somebody comes to this post and doesn't know how to do this.

You need an image called browser_list_btn.long.png (Sized 980x51 pixels, like the ones posted here, thanks savant and hapablap)

And you have to put the image (i.e. with ftp) in the following directory of the wdtv:
/osd/image/
