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.
Some errors creeped into 0.4.3.1, sorry about that, this maintenance release fixes them. Thank you to the people who pointed them out.
Seems I might have not zipped the release before I uploaded it, meaning not all the updates were contained. The zip has been fixed.
Ok, several people have pointed out that the upgrade is not being detected. I accidentally changed the version’ing scheme I used somehow. You can fix it easily using the method JT points out in his comment below.
It has been fixed in the version thats up now, so there should be no issue. Sorry about the bugs in 0.4.X so far, they’ve been mostly cosmetic at least.
* added more logging
* fixed typo in hotplugging script
* ext2/ext3/NFS/CIFS/XFS/reiserFS mounting fixed (for real this time).
You may find the latest release at the WDLXTV page.
NOTE: version numbering got messed up somehow in 0.4.3, if you have problems with the new firmware not being detected for upgrade you might need to open wdtv.ver in a text editor and change VERSION.
if this doesn’t work:
then try replacing the underscore with a dot or vice versa.
I will be going back to the original version’ing scheme (dot instead of underscore) for subsequent releases so if you upgraded to one of these versions you might need to change wdtv.ver on my next update. Sorry about the confusion, teaches me to package this stuff in the middle of the night.
Report any problems to the 0.4.X thread at wdtvforum.

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.
