good job KAD :!:

I want to add my way of OSD moding, maybe also useful for others.

Problem:
How to find out what xml files are related to any screen.
Solution:
1. Try to find any unique graphic image on screen.
2. Find out the name of the graphic in "osd/image/" or "osd/image/villa"
3. Go WinRar upper menu "search files" and let display all xmls files containing this image name.

Problem:
Find out new coordinates for positioning of text or images inside xml files
Solution:
1. You need to make screenshot of the screen you want to modify.
2. Use "WDTV Live - Remote Controller" http://sourceforge.net/projects/wdtvtelnetremot/
3. Once you have your WDTV screen at your PC visible, enlarge the window as big as possible.
4. Make a sceen dump by pressing "Alt - Print" on your keyboard.
5. Open a.e. Photoshop and import clipboard as new image.
6. Cut out the real screen dump out of the rest. Do this very accurat!!!
7. Resize image to 1280x725 pixels (EDIT: 1280 x 720)
8. Enable "Show coordinates" at Photoshop upper menu. So coordinates will shown when you move mouse inside image.
With this you are able to move, add, modify text or graphics without testing thousend of times correcting the coordinates. So you change coordinates and they fit from the first time.

Hope this helped for some people to make it easier to mod.
cheers mike

I'll second recliq's question about x 725, in my tinkering I've used 1280 x 720 backgrounds with no problems but also noticed the stock.osd.bin has a background of 1280 x 800 :?:

Yes its 720, i don't know why I wrote 725. :roll:

I want to show you a photoshop picture where you can see how a previous video-info page was born in my mod. Just playing arount until i liked the positions.

You can also see the background of some images are filled with pink color. That makes it easier to find out the x,y coordinates of the left/upper corner of transparent symbols. ;)

I bet you're right, anytime I've tried to share/access files between windows/kubuntu or vis vera, something always gets messed up, I also never attempted to drag drop, etc from kubuntu to windows, I always directed into to kubuntu, then plugged in my usb, this way the usb shows up as a kubuntu attached device and not a windows attached device, after copying to usb, I right clicked on drive in kubuntu to disconnect device, which automatically connects it to the win host, disconnecting from the windows host does not connect the device to kubuntu, so once, it's safe to remove from windows, just pull the usb
