If you wanted to free up a little more space, there are some *.po files left over in /osd/mo/ that aren't needed.

They're the plain text versions of the translation files (*.mo) in the same directory.

(I posted in avsforum about how to convert to/from *.mo format)

yah I noticed the .po's after looking in there due to your comment, didn't think about deleting them though. that frees up another 100k :)

Nice Job,

just a few questions:

Has wireless usb drivers included or we have to use the experimental pack from zorander?

Boot time is like ext3 firmware (slower) or like de original fw (faster)?

Thanks

issue #1, the osd changed in many places...and the themes I made do not work anymore, once I disabled farscape-osd I was able to view settings->about.

issue #2, noticed this as well ; ) I turned off media library to see if it would still continue scanning and it stopped immediately...then i turned media library back on and everythings been normal since.

thx  ;)  Wireless drivers are not included because they are much too large, only wired ethernet drivers are included. I'm working with someone right now to get wireless working, should be soon. As for boot times; well i think it boots to the osd in ~35s with a network adapter connected and no optware, just a theme. If you have a loaded optware and much else installed, then ~1m45s to osd.

@ Issue 2, I have experienced the same problem with ext. ext3-boot-0.9, fixed by turning media library off & on.

I tried your latest firmware b-rad.cc, but I got bad GUI, dunno if any other has the same problem.

The ui is a bit sluggish for me, but works. The previous themes I whipped up are not compatible with WDLXTV-0.4, if you are using one then that will be some of your issue.

I'll try and figure out the ui thing, if nothing else disabling theming should fix it.

I'm off to the store now to get a supported wireless adapter that I can test, get working, & then return :D

    Ya-Taa!
I tested out your release and found :

- The os is quicker.
- The pause while fading between menus has gone.
- I can't xmount nfs shares any longer.

I used the same net.mounts and net.config files that I had success with on 0.4.0.

I tried to manually mount it by telnet'ing in and going :
xmount //192.168.0.X:/<MyNFSshare> /tmp/media/tempmount nfs

Cheers for the hard work! :)
Firmware : 1.02.3_WDLXTV.0.4.3.2 (Fixed link version)
USB Devices : 80GBHDD Samsung 2.5inch IDE to USB
Network USB Device : Apple Ethernet to USB adapter

NFS Shares : WinXP SFU and Mac OS X 10.5.6

Hi b-rad.cc, I wanted to try your WDLXTV firmware, and I saw under notes/limitations that media library must be turned on.  What exactly happens if I have it turned off?
