WDLXTV is a souped up unofficial firmware for the Western Digital WDTV. It is based off the 1.03.01 firmware, but with many extra features. Similar to my dvdmod firmware, this is a permanent flash, just like an official upgrade. There is no Linux knowledge required to use WDLXTV.
This is a maintenance release. I had a typo that prevented S00custom-options from working, so patched that. I also messed up on the file name for the persistent video resuming, so check the Changelog (below) for details. If you weren’t affected by either of these bugs, then no real big deal to upgrade.
If you enjoy my work please make a donation. My time is thin and donations help focus me on producing new & better versions. Thanks.
* fixed typo preventing S00custom-options from executing
* persistent video resume filename correction: video_resume_points_table
* dos2unix /conf/net.mounts & /conf/net.config to fix windows editing
Importantly: It seems as if I *might’ve* finally found & fixed the sluggish remote / unresponsive video issue that popped up for a small minority of people a long time back. It turns out that dmaosd doesn’t like a lot of stuff happening while it is loading, and especially does not like NTP changing the system clock during init. So, if you have been/are affected by this bug you need to do the following from telnet/ssh/S00custom-options:
config_tool -c NTP=OFF
if you’d like to see if you can get NTP to coexist you can try the following instead:
config_tool -c NTP_DELAY=20
Note this delays the NTP sync, hopefully letting dmaosd initialize before it grabs time. You might need to change this to suit…and it might not even work The bug doesn’t affect me so what does / doesn’t work I don’t know, you’ll find out.
You may find the latest release at the WDLXTV page.
