WDLXTV App pack: screen-dump.app.bin-0.1

This app.bin pack provides the ability to do screen grabs off your wdtv. The screen grabs can be taken while playing media, but only the osd overlays are output at this time. The main use of this app pack therefore is to grab screens of the OSD.

Thanks to Pibos for assembling all the libraries, modules, and binaries required to get this nice bit of functionality.

Simply place screen-dump.app.bin onto a harddrive/flashdisk & boot your WDTV with the device connected.

To use:

# screendump <filename.png>

Your screen grab will be saved to the current directory so make sure that you are in a writeable location.


  • The system will become unstable if you remove the device containing the app.bin while the wdtv is on.

  • Only the OSD overlays show up in the screen grabs and not the video.

I was so excited to see this app released, but for some reason when I try to run it it just tells me that it cannot find screendump.

Great tutorial.

@b-rad: Is there any chance you can download with the wd tv device from rapidshare.com or netload.in with a plugin?

<<< edit: look at my Optware tip #2 downloading from rapidshare with slimrat ;) –b-rad >>>

Has anyone else used this on ext3?

<<< edit: not me, but no reason why it shouldn’t work. –b-rad >>>

After I had uninstalled reinstalled uninstalled reinstalled the diff firmwares for unrelated reasons, I remembered I still had this app installed and wanted to see if it now worked…it did!!! Awesome, thanks b-rad
