1.03.49_B.WDLXTV_PLUS-0.4.7.3 - Will not upgrade correctly   

Postby gilgamesh_48 » Tue Oct 11, 2011 8:51 am

I downloaded the 0.5.1.1 upgrade and applied it to my WDLXTV_PLUS and the upgrade ran fine and appeared to take but after the reboot there was no text labels on the screen. I re-downloaded and tried a couple of times.

The icons are all there and I can navigate and play videos fine but the text for all the labels is missing.

I could have done something wrong but this is the first time I have had an issue with the upgrade process.

I tried to search for this problem but could not come up with an answer. I also tried to run the root.bin from the other download and it gives the same problem.

I have reverted back and everything is fine now but I would like to run the new ver.

It may just be a setting somewhere but I cannot find it.

Any help that can be offered will be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Make sure you don't have a leftover osd.bin on your USB drive. The osds of 1.03 are not compatible with 1.05.
Boot without a USB drive attached to make sure the firmware boots correctly.

There was not an osd.bin however there were a BUNCH of files that were clearly unneeded as they all exist elsewhere and I guess they got on my UBS thumb drive over time.

I just deleted them all and then upgraded again, I had reverted back earlier, and all is working normally.

Now I just need to figure out, if possible, how to get an attached usb DVD drive working. But that is another kettle of worms; or was that can of fish?

Thanks for your help.

For the DVD drive - attach it as normal (if it's powered, power it externally, otherwise it's best to use a powered USB hub). Also, connect a USB thumb drive to the system so that you can access your DVD. Then go to Video -> Local drives -> DVD

I did exactly as you said and I do have a thumb drive hooked up as well but my WD does not see the drive. I can connect the drive to a computer and share it on the network and the WD will play DVDs fine through network shares.

When it is connected to the WD it never shows up at all.

It is a Memorex 3202 3233, Could this drive be incompatible?

Getting the drive working with my WD is not very important as I have several other ways of playing DVDs but I like to be able to have alternatives and this would be another one of those.

BTW: I like the enhancements that this build provides and even without the DVD working it is well worth the effort I have put in to get it to work. (Most of the effort was because of whatever extra file I had on the USB thumb drive that was screwing things up.)

Thanks again
