WD TV Live Hub   

Postby extremedigital » Sun Dec 05, 2010 3:39 pm

Well i suppose i better kicks things off as there has not been much info posted here re this new player.....

My obversations so far:---


Firstly the stock UI is an improvement over the WDTV Live or Live Plus.....

With the fact that custom osd mod themes are possible this will only improve with time.


Whilst it is not as major a leap as you might imagine going from the Live to the Live Hub, it does add some very nice features including:-

Built in 1tb Hard Drive....not looked at if possible to upgrade the internal drive but i am sure at some point someone will

Built in Twonky media server, so you can use a media controller (eg juliojs android app) to send the media either back to the Hub or to other Media Players/Renderers in your network.

This built in Twonky server also opens up alot of possibilites to remote control the Hub and for example you now have a new Webend interface that has a remote control feature amongst other things.

A little feature that you may miss at first is the inclusion of a small mediamark to show half watched or fully watched movies

Obviously the big talking point apart from the themes is the inclusion of movie information...

Note the 'moviesheets' will only show in the Gallery View mode but you can pull up the info in the other modes....

Talking about view modes you have the following views:

1: List View (only text filenames)
2: Preview (list + preview window on right right this is like on previous model with a few cosmetic changes)
3: Gallery View (thumbs are in single line on the bottom very much like sheet mode this is the 'moviesheet' mode)
4: Small Grid View (4x4 thumbs wide matrix)
5: Large Grid View (3x3 thumbs wide matrix)


I did read on the internet that is possible to modify the xml of Gallery View to change to a custom view...whilst this could be done to get back a Large Thumbnail view like in the Live it might also be interesting if this can be used to give a custom moviesheet view ???


It has an interesting Sync feature that would allow you to Automatically Sync the files from a usb drive or a network location to a special folder on the hard drive called usb_sync, whilst i can't imagine i will be using it much myself it could be useful for others


There was a small silly point when you take the box out of it is wrapped in a clear bag which has a seal you have to break

On the seal it says 'Purchase and use of the WD TV is subject to the acceptance of the End User License. Go to

http://www.wdc.com/company/legal

well this url doesn't exist :oops:


Lastly get used to having to navigate with a totally different system based around Sort/Filter...And by Content.....you will need to memorise the functions of the Green/Red/Yellow/Blue keys to navigate faster.

Will update this page with some pictures

New Webend

This reminder to update my firmware is actually as a result of me using the ver trick..i installed the newest firmware a second time via usb to make sure that the online firmware and downloaded ones were the same (ie the downloaded one still didn't add the Neflix or Blockbuster apps) However the funny side effect is that the webend still thinks there is a newer firmware version as it has seen it previously on a usb stick LOL

Ok Maybe i jumped the gun a little on the folder structure....Phew :)


It is possible to still have the movies in individual folders, BUT..... the folder name MUST match exactly with the file name of the movie..


In other words previously my folder was called something like

Folder was called:- Avatar (720p) and the File was called:- Avatar.mkv

You have to make sure that they are EXACTLY the same...

so either

Folder called:- Avatar and the file called Avatar.mkv

or

Folder called Avatar (720p) and the file called Avatar (720p).mkv


Things to note the movie information will now show on the top folder level, But the backdrops will only show when you go into the actual folder :?: and now on the top level you just get a black screen instead of your wallpaper :?: :?:


However unless it is me no matter what i try i cannot get the box to use my moviename.jpg or folder.jpg instead of the internet thumbnail on the actual moviesheet and I have to revert to replacing the thumbnail inside the metadata folder of the Live Hub to my thumbnail.


Something Interesting however is that when using 'Files' to browse

When the library is OFF then you can see all the files inside any folder,

However when the library is ON it will hide the following jpg files:-

folder.jpg

However if your Folder Name is EXACTLY the same as the movie file as explained above AND your library is ON it will hide the following files:-

folder.jpg , moviename.jpg , moviename.mkv_sheet.jpg

So basically you have to name your moviesheet a different name eg fanart.jpg or wdtv.jpg and it will then show along with the main movie file....

Thanks to the built in Proxy function in the hub after a lot of effort to find a proxy that works i was finally able to get this working ..

But my feelings is that it is not going to be that stable unless you have a rock solid proxy connection thats up all the time....But it's SUCCESS for now !!

Sorry about the quality of the photos but its late and i am tired after spending hours trying to find a working proxy. :geek:

Great information. The info about naming of the folder and movie helped me tremendously. Pain in the but renaming, but you solved my problem none the less. :D

Hi, I'm really confused on if there's any way to get a movie sheet to display on the hub. I used WDTV MSG 1.6.9 and here is a pic of the files it created in the folder but i'm having no luck getting a movie sheet to display:
