MoreAdorned MSG template – now compatible with ThumbGen

I’ve stumbled upon yet another tool for generating movie sheets compatible with the WDTV: ThumbGen. ThumbGen uses Movie Sheet Generator/TViXie compatible templates, but some of them needs to be tweaked a bit. A user on the WDTV Forum requested an update of the MoreAdorned template – And luckily the author of ThumbGen delivered. I have repackaged my copy of MoreAdorned with the updated template XML here

Idaho680 TViXiE/Movie Sheet Generator Templates

If you frequent the WDTV community you may know of some pretty fantastic templates for TViXiE and Movie Sheet Generator by Idaho680. Idaho680 is also responsible for a couple of nice OSD mods for WTDV. For reasons not known to the wider public (me included) Idaho680 one day simply announced that he had had enough, deleted most (if not all) of his work from the forum and disappeared. I had one of the template packs…

Building a cheap HD media player with WD TV

Introduction, description and background A couple of months ago I was looking for a media player for the bedroom. I already had a TViX running in the living room. I had a few criteria “Cheap” (cheaper than TViX at least) Able to play HD content on both HD TV (through HDMI) and my old 32″ Sony Trinitron Able to play content from my NFS server No mowing parts = No noise and lower power consumptions…

Updated “Cold 720p” template for TViXie and WDTV

TViXiE is a GUI builder for TViX, NMT (Popcorn Hour, etc…) and Western Digital WD TV HD Player media players. TViXiE automatically downloads movie/music information and covers and builds a graphical browsing experience for the TViX/NMT media player. A user (Dolu) has created a template called Cold 720p which I find very pleasant to view (colors and the fact that is uses icons instead of text). The format of the template is not quite compatible…

WDTV: Make video resume boot persistent

Note: This feature has now been incorporated into WDLXTV 0.5.8. Yay. Just a quick fix to make the video resume feature boot persistent (I use b-rad’s firmware, I’m not sure how this can be done with ext3-boot, specifically the part concerning mount points may differ. This can either be done on a computer (with the USB stick/disk attached) or telnet’ing/ssh’ing into the box. If you are doing the latter I assume you know where to…
