I tried to modify the "ver" and I put several values *above* the original firmware, but nothing happens. Is the newest official firmware disabling something? One more question: if i cant installl the firmware, can i use movie sheets inside wdtv live? Help, plz.

Update should work from 1.06 read the wiki quickstart guide especially the troubleshooting section.

Moviesheets only work with WDLXTV not with official firmware.

This is the G2 forum btw, so either you are trying to break your G2 or you are posting in the wrong forum (which would be the one for LIVE).

ctfoster wrote:Great guide, thanks for doing it. I've followed your instructions and gone back through them three times but I still don't have it working. Just wondering if you could give some troubleshooting advice? How for example do I know if those settings have taken properly from my thumb drive? I have the brad firmware and the folder structure is as you have laid it out ....

I have a folder called Movies which contains individual folders with the movie file and all the jpegs. So my path looks like Movies > A Serious Man. This folder then contains A Serious Man.avi, Folder.jpg, A Serious Man.avi_sheet.jpg, etc ....

Any ideas?

Thanks


Your folder structure seems correct. Are you sure that your Moviesheets are less than 500KB? Apparently the files must be less than 500KB in order to display.

The "S00custom-options" file will be included with the firmware download. Just open the file with Notepad and save it after you've made all necessary changes.

I'm having a load of trouble just with the first step in updating with the firmware, instructions followed and yet it does not prompt to be updated when the device powers up...any help?

Make sure you have a supported device and the correct firmware:
