I've been trying to get movie sheets up and running tonight but am having no luck at all. I have followed instructions in both this thread and also this one (http://forum.wdlxtv.com/viewtopic.php?f=&t=776
). Basically I have setup NFS share back to my iMac which is up and running. I have installed the latest b-rad firmware.
I used ThumbGen to create my movie sheet for Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, with the following folder structure on my iMac (note, not on my external HDD)
----Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
------The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.avi
------The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.avi_sheet.jpg
------The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.avi.tgmd
------The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.jpg
I edited my s00custom-options file by uncommenting the following:
## Movie sheet modes (only one can be enabled at a time)
## unless you have sheets for each mode you will encounter oddities switching around modes
## AKA this isn't magic
## Full screen std mode:
#config_tool -c MSHEETMODE=std
## 1280x460 (horizontal banner at top) sheet mode:config_tool -c MSHEETMODE=sheet
## 500x720 (vertical banner on right) wall mode:
#config_tool -c MSHEETMODE=wall
## turn on moviesheets for a list type (ON/OFF)
## you must turn it on for a view type to see sheets!
## video thumb modeconfig_tool -c VIDMSHEET=ON
## audio/photo thumb modeconfig_tool -c GENMSHEET=ON
## list mode (video/audio/photo)config_tool -c LISTMSHEET=ON
I then added this to the very bottom:config_tool -c LINKSHEETS=ON
config_tool -c SHOW_FILESIZE_SETTING=0
config_tool -c WDTVEXT=OFF
I then placed this file on a USB stick (only file on there), booted up WDTV and it flashed for a bit then i ejected (as instructed in the link i provided above). Plugged in my external HDD and went into my Movies directory (iMac Movies directory, not the external HDD). I have Thumbnail mode selected for display. The thumbnail image works but when I go into the "Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" folder, no movie sheet is displayed.
A few questions:
1. Is this s00custom-options file a "run once" file? Or should I put that in the root of my external drive so it gets read every time I turn on the WDTV?
2. Do I even need to use the s00custom-options file when I can telnet into the WDTV and set the options I want to set as per (http://wiki.wdlxtv.com/How_to_use_Movie_sheets_v2)?
3. Should I just set everything via the web front end?
As you can see I'm very confused so would very much appreciate a push in the right direction.
