    Hi all,

    Hoping someone can give me a hand here, as I'm very new to WDLXTV and am having trouble getting sheets working on my WDTV HD G2. If it helps, here are the steps I have taken:

    1. Loaded B-Rad firmware 0.5.8.1

    2. Added the following lines to the S00 file:
    Code:
    #Enable Movie Sheets
    config_tool -c SHOW_FILESIZE_SETTING=0
    config_tool -c MSHEETMODE=sheet 
    config_tool -c VIDMSHEET=ON
    config_tool -c GENMSHEET=ON
    config_tool -c LISTMSHEET=ON
    
    #Turn off USB when WDTV is turned off
    config_tool -c USB_POWER_OFF=1
    3. Loaded the S00 file

    4. Put MovieSheets (1280x459 version with 7 thumbs along the bottom) files in the root directory of my external hard drive

    5. Set up my folder structure as follows:
    Code:
    G:
    ---Movies
       ---halcyon-28days.720p-x264.mkv
          halcyon-28days.720p-x264.jpg
          halcyon-28days.720p-x264_sheet.jpg
          310.to.Yuma.2007.BluRay.1080p.DTS.x264.dxva.mkv
          310.to.Yuma.2007.BluRay.1080p.DTS.x264.dxva.jpg
          310.to.Yuma.2007.BluRay.1080p.DTS.x264.dxva_sheet.jpg
          etc
          etc
          etc
    6. Browsed to Movies folder on USB1 on the WDTV

    Now this is where I get stuck..... All I get on the display is a single mkv file name at the bottom of the screen with the ability to scroll up or down through the file names. No sheets or thumbs appear at all! Can someone have a think about whether I have missed something crucial here?

    What I am hoping to achieve is this....

    I wish I could help, but I know even less than you. I do have WDLXTV firmware, but I haven't done anything with it. I eagerly await your moment of triumph and subsequent guide post :)

    Will do.

    Check back soon. Will have something exciting for you tomorrow. Guide to set up Cylent's Showcase V2 including movie sheets for movies and TV shows.

    Yes that's where I originally started from. I think the mistake I made was that I posted the msheets lines of code into the S00customoptions file, whereas you don't need to.

    Looks good, but I prefer having 7 covers along the bottom so you can scroll through and know where you are in the list of movies, if you know what I mean

    I think you can only use 0.4.2.2 based on the original 1.02.21 to get the movie sheets working.
    I had mine working exactly the way you need (cant find what tutorial I used) but when I added a heap more movies to my drive they stopped all of a sudden.

    Currently I am showing the scroll-able covers on the bottom but no movie sheet showing.

    Not sure if you got this working but I am trying to sort it out tomorrow..
    Will post some tips..

    Cheers.
