You can use any .jpg file you like. Resize them to the specifications and then rename them to match above by deleting the file extension.
I've also included themed optional MENUSHEETDIR set's, included in download are the following sets:
Linux-Wallpapers
Apple-Wallpapers
Windows-Wallpapers
Disney-Wallpapers
ActionScifi-Wallpapers
Cars-Wallpapers
Motorcycles-Wallpapers
Nature-Wallpapers
SafariAnimals-Wallpapers
Fish-Wallpapers
Dog-Wallpapers


Feel free to post any themed sets that you think the community will enjoy. In fact, I think some of you can do much better than I've done.

Downloads
Version 1.3 Compatible with WDLXTV 5.1 & Newer

Extended Installation Guide

In the beginning .. there was a
.zip archive
1.unzip the archive
2. place osd.bin at the root of a thumbdrive
3. place folder "Wallpapers" on the root of thumbdrive
4. reboot

After reboot you should now have the basic eye candy osd running, depending on your configuration you may also have default menusheets in place already as well

Basic Menusheets
Basic menusheets require a few things, your system must be configured to use linksheets, LINKSHEETS=ON is required and you can use WEC to enable this. If linksheets is not working or you are not sure how to enable linksheets, you should visit the wiki or the moviesheet subforum for more info on linksheets.
LINKSHEETS is not required in the current version

and you should get the default sheets

Change the MENUSHEETDIR
if you do not want to use the default MENUSHEETDIR you can do the following
1. enable early mount, this is found on the first page of wec, select your drive with the directory you wish to use
2. reboot
3. set the path to your MENUSHEETDIR
example
Code: Select all
config_tool -c MENUSHEETDIR=/tmp/mnt/ACCC17F9CC17BD10/Msheets/Nature-Wallpapers

you can use wec to enter this and it is not required to reboot again
this must be located under
Code: Select all
/tmp/mnt/....
locations at
Code: Select all
/tmp/media/...
will not work
notice that the folder "Nature-Wallpapers" actually contains the menusheets

Setup RANDOM_MENUSHEETDIR
We are now going to add a niffty feature
1. Turn on EYE_CANDY_RANDOM_MENUSHEETS - use wec
or if in cmd line proper values are
Code: Select all
config_tool -c EYE_CANDY_RANDOM_MENUSHEETS=1
= OFF
Code: Select all
config_tool -c EYE_CANDY_RANDOM_MENUSHEETS=2
= ON

2. set the RANDOM_MENUSHEETDIR using wec
example
Code: Select all
config_tool -c RANDOM_MENUSHEETDIR=/tmp/mnt/ACCC17F9CC17BD10/Msheets

please compare the RANDOM_MENUSHEETDIR and MENUSHEETDIR
the only difference is RANDOM_MENUSHEETDIR will leave off the last "Nature-Wallpapers"
besides that they should be exactly the same
now each time you power off with your remote, a different MENUSHEETDIR will be selected

Common Confusion
do not confuse the following
MENUSHEETDIR - this directory contains menusheets
RANDOM_MENUSHEETDIR - this directory contains more directories
MSHEETDIR - this is not related to eyecandy

Color Schemes
These do not effect moviesheets or menusheets, choose a color via wec
or from cmd line
Code: Select all
config_tool -c EYE_CANDY_COLOR_SCHEME=1
= Red
Code: Select all
config_tool -c EYE_CANDY_COLOR_SCHEME=2
= Black/Gold
Code: Select all
config_tool -c EYE_CANDY_COLOR_SCHEME=3
= Blue

Note
If you want your directories to be located on a network share, they must be mounted using the NETAPP feature

Enjoy

Hi KAD
Have been using your beta versions of Eye Candy for 1.05.04 sussessfully since first posted. Loaded Eye Candy 1.05.04 v 1.0.bin onto my drive and nothing happens on reboot. eyecandybuild081711.osd works without problems. Any idea of problem.
Running 1.05.04_V_WDLXTV.COM_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.5.0.0 on a Live.

only thing I can think of is a corrupted download or such, as for the the osd.bin itself, only change between those versions was a fix to the eject hdd screen and bundling of the alternate MENUSHEETDIR's

try and download again, if you still can't get it to work, let me know

I have the same issue, no joy with this version on 1.05.04_B WDLXTV_plus-0.5.0.0

Maybe I'm missing settings in the OSD?
