Sorry, this will not work with 1.03.49 firmwares, I have a beta version currently in the works which will work with that firmware,
shouldn't be too long before it's available

I've just loaded this plug-in on a WDTV Live connected to a SD CRT TV (25" Sony Wega).It loads perfectly except for the fact that the icons are displaced almost entirely off-screen :( and I have to navigate intuitively!

Is this problem inherent with SD CRT TVs or is there a workaround ?

First off I'd like to extend my thanks to those that have helped put this together. Recliq, for the js work he's done and of late the great coaching he's given me on how to update the plugins used. Brad continued help and don't forget suniloffline. sunil is the creator of nearly all images used, including all the colorschemes, without his effort this would not exist.

So without further adu. The Menusheet plugin has been updated, for those updating, you should remove the old Menusheet plugin prior to upgrade. The Upgrade includes some major features 1. the plugin is now self contained within the osd.bin, the osd.bin will enable the plugin by default, and even set the default MENUSHEETDIR for you. so what does this mean for you. I've done everything for you. Just boot with the osd.bin on the root of your drives and everything will be functional. For those that have their own menusheets, the default path is only entered if on boot there is no path at all. I've also added an onscreen debugging feature for anybody that has custom menus

Big change number 2. New plugin which is enabled by default and located inside the osd.bin allows changing of colorschemes from within the osd.bin and without needing a reboot. I do need to let you know that on occaison dmaosd cashing can be a little unpredicable, but most of the time, colorscheme change is very fast, once you start navigating the menu's

We've also added a Blue color Scheme to choose from.

Other big news for future versions, while not ready for release, we have figured out how to have MenuSheets on 1.05.04 firmwares without needing any plugins, so shortly around the corner you'll have menusheets on all firmware versions. And curtesy of B-rad even a little automagic to go along with it :mrgreen:

Place "EYE_CANDY_2_0.osd.bin" at root of thumbdrive
Reboot


Please feel free to replace any menusheet you desire. that's the point. you can choose images to suit your taste, just pay close attention to the file names used, correct dimensions for menusheets are 1100 x 565 , also I recommend keeping the size at 200kb or lower, larger file sizes take considerable time to load and it will be very noticeable

version 1.8 http://www.mediafire.com/?uh8gbvph828o11y

Great job on the new release!

I notice in one of your pics that the "Tools" icon is normal like all the others. Why would it be a plain blue icon on my set-up? I am using the latest 1.02.21 B-rad fw. Also, where can i find info on how to set up all of the playlist options in the Music menu?

thanks!

most of the plugins themselves handle the images for there related icons
the other icons can be found here http://forum.wdlxtv.com/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=96&start=200
you just need to replace the images in the .wdtvext-plugins folder,
since there's no special format or such with the plugins folder, you can easily do this in windows, drag and drop

as for playlist, not sure, since I don't have even 1. I think thumbgen has an option to create playlist

see this thread http://forum.wdlxtv.com/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=5039 , you'll want version 1.0 , unless you upgrade to WDLXTV 5.1.

Hi Kad,

I'm still using the EYE Candy OSD on my WD Live and recently (all of the sudden) the display started showing this:

Name: $$Video
Title: $$Video
FIle: xxxxxxxxxxxxx (file name)

This is dependent on what my selection is.

all of the rest of the OSD is intact.

Do you know why it would be displaying this text?

thanks,
davron94
