FAQ's:
- It is for the "Live" version, but plan to support "GEN 2" and "PLUS" given enough demand to do so
- MovieSheets+ is a complete re-write of the sheet logic. In other words, it doesn't use the sheet logic that comes with the firmware. This should make it fairly compatible with newer firmware versions.
- Once it goes GA (General Availability), it will be supported as long as the firmware doesn't force its own sheet logic.
- Plans for more features such as User defined movie ratings after you watch a movie, combining movie preview with sheets (play the trailer instead of still image), etc.

Thanks PsychoTHC.

I used the Pinnacle Studio MovieBox hardware\software package (I had it lying around for years and never used it until now). It allows me to plug my WDTV into it and preview\capture its output directly on the PC.

I then used the AVS4You Video Editor to add the overlays and music tracks. It was my first time using all of this so it must be relatively easy to use :geek:

Hi Markster,

I have a Gen2 and would really love to have this on my WDTV, so please count me in the "given enough demand" group :D.

I created a second video capturing MovieSheets+ "Hover" logic on the TV Shows folder. Demonstrates how you can add whatever sheets you want for folder displays, along with Season and Episode sheets which automatically display when you "hover" on any given Show, Season, or Episode.

Note I also enhanced the classy "Clear Showcase" template to add Season and Episodes shown in the video. The Season template required me to write my first XSLT so that you could parse the episode names into 3 individual columns. Enjoy.
