WDLXTV – enhanced WDTV firmware

WDLXTV is a souped up unofficial firmware for the Western Digital WDTV. It is based off the 1.02.03 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.

Hot of the press, again.
* NFS/CIFS/XFS/reiserFS mounting fixed.

* now based on 1.02.03 !!
* screen_saver shrunken for size

You may find the latest release at the WDLXTV page.

I’ve spent a tremendous amount of time hacking the WDTV firmware, so if you appreciate my efforts please donate a little something using the link below : ) Thanks & enjoy.

Talking about screensaver, could you please change the purple color of its border ?

IMHO a blue picture would better suits the global look&feel of the WD :D

Neither my ext3 hd nor my reiser formatted hd is mounted automatically anymore.

<<< edit: I can’t help you without logs. my ext3 hard drive still mounts, maybe you need to fsck your drive. Post your logs at wdtvforum and I’ll look at them. –b-rad >>>

Nice! The new firmware fixed problems I had with the prior firmware.

Are there plans to make the flashed items such has the background changeable by looking through folders on the USB devices?

I need to check out the forum you listed on a prior post.

< << edit: its possible for sure. if i can ever find enough time I'll polish up the theming tutorial I've got under way. --b-rad >>>

there is no problem to mount them manually, i will post some logs tomorrow when i find some time.

<<< edit: someone else has reported ext2 now. ext3 mounts at boot for me which is strange. Thanks for the logs, post them in the 0.4.X thread when you have a chance. –b-rad >>>

How about a app package to allow rar support?

Using this could make it possible
