so if that's all set
and you see the layout changed, then settings are correct
other possible problems
file size larger than 500KB
display file size ON(this is a setting in the UI)
names of moviesheets are wrong

The layout has definitely changed, just black backgrounds each level I step through.

No files are bigger than 500kb

Is this in the System Setting on the WDTV? If so, is it supposed to be ON or OFF? I tried both, still didnt work

Got it working. For some reason the WDTV had frozen and I had to pull the power cable. Plugged it back in and moviesheets are now up and running

hi, i have a problem with the wdlxtv and movie covers.

i have installed wdlxtv 1.02.21 DDLXTV Live 0.5.1.4. it works fine and i can play my movies over wd nas. but i have the problem that the moviesheets that i generated are not shown. i tried to put the files on my usb device and configure it in the webinterface, but the webinterface settings does not take effekt. then i take the moviesheets in the folder from the film, but it does not play. all checkboxes in the webinterface by movie sheet is on an also wdtvext. (i have all combins tried) and with every change reboot the box. i have no idea. i would link to put a jpg in the movie folder but this has no effekt.

i put the jpg file into the movie ordner also

-movie folder
--movie.mkv
--movie.jpg
--movie.mkv.jpg
--movie_sheet.jpg
--wd_tv.jpg

no picture are displayd

i have also tried on the same level to the movie ordner
-movie folder
-movie.mkv
-movie.jpg
-movie.mkv.jpg
-movie_sheet.jpg
-wd_tv.jpg

also no jpg is displayd

when i configure a file on usb stick called S00custom-options the webinterface disabled the file after reboot :(

i tried the original firmware of b-rad but there i cannot install the volume-plugin and i have no idea how i can style the menu.

can anyone give me a tip, i tried 2 days ago and i have no more ideas :( moviesheets are not so important, but a picture in the overview is very nice....

1. You got the filenaming wrong. You have no file sheet.
http://wiki.wdlxtv.com/How_to_use_Movie_sheets_v2#Example_File_Structures

2. It might help if you tell...
I) which exact setup you are trying to accomplish.
II) what exactly you configured, it's no use telling us you "tried all kind of various otions"

3. Try to investigate a bit more on the forum, all these moviesheets issues have been discussed over and over and over and over again.
