New problem..And i really dont know why cause nothing has been changed...
Screensaver is running in "background", means behind the sheets...I can hear it , but only see it for a sec when i switch from main menu to my USB1 HDD for example...

Installation
put on root of thumbdrive
set DMAOSD_DEBUG (first tab in WEC under "system" if you've never used this select "File")
reboot
select videoscreensaver ON (WEC osd tab)

Optional
enter path to your custom screensaver (WEC osd tab)
enabled random selection of screensavers (WEC osd tab)
random requires setting a path to directory of screensavers (WEC osd tab)

Notes
if this fails for any reason you still get the normal screensaver

I'm not sure if I've done something wrong or what. I don't seem to have all, or maybe even any, of the settings you've mentioned in the OSD tab. Here's a screenshot:

edit: Is there maybe an issue with this and EyeCandy running at the same time? I have both .bins in the / of my thumbdrive. Special instructions?

doesn't look like the app.bin loaded at all
.mnt file on thumbdrive is recommended for running app.bin's
there's no known conflict between this and EyeCandy, it's been quite a while, but I obviously used both at the same time in the past

my recommendation look at the bug report and at dmaosd.log to see any clue to why the app.bin did not load
you might also look at WAM to see if it reports the app.bin as enabled

Hmmm. Under Installed Apps:

Code: Select all
Installed applications:
videoscreensaver <unknown version>


edit: found this in dmsosd.log:

Code: Select all
^[[1;33;41mobjpage.c[148], screensaver timeout^[[0m
        ^[[34mOEM_STATUS_SCREEN_SAVER_START^[[0m


It's the only instance of "screen" in that file.

From WAM:
Code: Select all
videoscreensaver?
Version <unknown version>
????-??-??   unknown   Local   No description.   On sda1 Enabled   



Not sure where to find the bug report you mentioned.

so far nothing unusual

bug report is a button on the webend
or you can view the file itself at /tmp/messages.txt

something else you can check
videoscreensaver will actually continually run a process in the background
so you can check if there is a videoscreensaver process running

Don't see it anywhere in processed. I took EyeCandy out of / to see if that was interfering.

.mnt is also in /

Not sure what else to try.

I switched to slimvideoscreensaver.app.bin and that seems to be working.

Question: my screensavers are in: /tmp/media/usb/USB2/9A92-3438/screensavers/

What should be the values of the following fields? Currently I have them both set to /tmp/media/usb/USB2/9A92-3438/screensavers/

MYSCREENSAVER

RANDOM_SCREENSAVERDIR

currently I'm getting this: Dec 31 19:00:40 WDLXTV user.notice S99videoscreensaver: MYSCREENSAVER ( /tmp/media/usb/USB2/9A92-3438/screensavers/ ) DOES NOT EXIST!

Contents of my screensaver dir:

looks like you made some good progress

my recomendation for all settings is to refer to a path that will not change between reboots
so you want to use /tmp/mnt instead of /tmp/media
random might look like this (directory containing screensavers)

Code: Select all
RANDOM_SCREENSAVERDIR=/tmp/mnt/9A92-3438/screensavers

myscreensaver on the other had should point to an individual file
Code: Select all
MYSCREENSAVER=/tmp/mnt/9A92-3438/screensavers/somescreensaverher.mp4


my only other thoughts

this was designed for new firmware that does not have WDTVext
now that said

it should work, and obviously from your post it is working
but there's also another option based on WDTVext
http://forum.wdlxtv.com/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=5978
effect should be the same, so just stick with whichever one you're more comfortable with
