Hi thanks for all the past help
but I need a bit more .I am trying to create my own menusheets but when I put my JPEG graphic into the folder on my USB it is still an image and not the same file type as all the others.
so my question is what graphics editor do I need I am using Photoshop
but it will not open the VJPEG files so cant swap like I would with other programs etc
Thanks

glad to see somebody is creating menusheets

as for how to do it, it depends on your os
linux allows files without extension
MS only from cmd line, or you can use a tool like bulk rename utility

Hi
I think that my path is not right
the annoying thing is I had this working fine a year ago but took no notes as to how I did it , a new PC and a long stay in Hospital and now I am lost
my OS is Vista
Set the Path used for a custom MENUSHEET directory /tmp/wdtvext-plugins/MENUSHEETDIR
Enable Random Menusheets OFF
Set the Path used for RANDOM_MENUSHEETDIR /tmp/media/usb/USB1/3480-9806/MENUSHEETDIR

when I get it working I shall share the Graphics that I find far easier than all this code stuff
Thanks for any help in advance

I recommend to enable early mount for the drive

then use a path like
Code: Select all
/tmp/mnt/USB1/3480-9806/MENUSHEETDIR/Action
for the menusheets

and then the random path, will not be used, because you have random OFF
if you turn it on it might be something like
Code: Select all
/tmp/mnt/USB1/3480-9806/MENUSHEETDIR
