Moviesheet clarification   

Postby Rorscach » Sun Dec 26, 2010 9:04 am

Sorry to have to ask a topic which has been discussed to death, but can someone please who has ACTUALLY managed to achieve this, give me some clarification as to weather moviesheets do indeed work with this current firmware?
All I seem to get is people telling me how it SHOULD theoretically be done, which never works for me.
I've had them working, so I know how to do it.
Yes I've configured the s00options, Yes I've rebooted, yes I've turned the unit off blah blah blah.....

Thanks.

Hi Schenk, thanks a lot for your reply.
Would you mind posting your s00options file as well as the structure (naming conventions) of a folder for example if you have it working successfully on the G2?

Thanks for the reply recliq, I've read through those posts before. and whilst I can get the sheets to show without any problem in sheet mode, they just refuse to show in std mode.
What the hell am I doing wrong???

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
##
## in this file you can enter commands that will be executed with the init.d scripts
## typos / syntax errors will prevent the osd from booting
## this file is only executed if it is at the root of an attached device at boot
##  *** NO REFLASH IS REQUIRED: S00custom-options is executed EVERY boot ***
##
## several examples are provided below, uncomment (delete #) them to use
##
##
## config_tool commands only need to be executed _once_ then they can be re-commented
## ***NOTE*** commenting a config_tool command does *NOT* disable it
##            you must change a setting back to default manually
##
##
##


## change background image between 3 stock options, or arbitrary location
## background image **CAN NOT** be larger than 512KB
##
## the following three images are included in the firmware
## original background:
#config_tool -c BACKGROUND_IMAGE=original_bg.jpg
## eM82's backdrop background:
#config_tool -c BACKGROUND_IMAGE=eM82_bg.jpg
## wood panel (default) background:
#config_tool -c BACKGROUND_IMAGE=villa_bg.jpg
##
## To set an absolute location:
#config_tool -c BACKGROUND_IMAGE=/tmp/mnt/123ed956-1256-4825-9e79-86fc1e0febaa/random/location.jpg
##
## You can also supply an image, on an attached device at boot (like S00custom-options),
## which is 1280x720 and *NO* larger than 512KB named villa_bg.jpg and it will be used as the custom background
## *ONLY* villa_bg.jpg will work in this method, and *you may remove the device if you desire* after the background has been loaded
##


## change screen saver image between wdlxtv & original WD logo's, or arbitrary location
##
## wdlxtv logo
#config_tool -c SCREEN_SAVER_IMAGE=screen_saver.png
## original WD logo
config_tool -c SCREEN_SAVER_IMAGE=screen_saver.orig.png
## some random location (absolute)
#config_tool -c SCREEN_SAVER_IMAGE=/tmp/mnt/123ed956-1256-4825-9e79-86fc1e0febaa/some/random/screensaver-image.png

You don't get a sheet when you enter the folder Akira?
Have you tried naming the sheet file Akira.avi_sheet.jpg or wd_tv.jpg?

If all doesn't work can you please post the output of this command?
Code: Select all
ls -ald /msheets/Akira*

I tried to name them as such, but still they don't appear.
I can't telnet the command you posted as I don't have any network access for the thing.

I think that std mode simply doesn't work on this firmware. Any clarification given by people on here appears to be from those using sheet mode, which seems to work just fine.

Hi Rorscach,

it definitely works in STD Mode because i have it running. I got no connection to my g2, so i don't know how to read out my config file. All i remember is when i first installed the new firmware i had to make a config file with this entry to make it show up: config_tool -c LINKSHEETS=ON. After that the sheets showed up.

Cheers

Ok, thanks a lot for clearing that up man.

So, does that mean that you're using a central moviesheet repository then? (as opposed to each sheet within the movie's folder)

It would help me out greatly if you could write an example of how your folders look (as in my example above) if you have it working correctly.

Thanks man, I'd appreciate that a lot.

Open S00custom-options with wordpad or something and copy-paste everything here. I also have a problem with moviesheet and playback so i think is imposible to do that on some devices :?
