How can I know if my wd live is a smp or hub?
Trying to do thumbgen and the stuff not working on it
The hub has a built in hard drive, but essentially the same are you sure you need thumbgen, a third party renamer is all I use, and I am not sure I need that, just habit. The live and hub fetch data, automatically. Thumbgen was used a lot on the older wd tv live as it didn't have a scraper and worked well with hacked firmware. There were plenty of you tube tutorials at one time, but not sure if it's even being updated now.
So plant head,
His do you change your DVD/bluray covers to suit you?
Because when I get info from wd live it sometime gives me a Asian film cover.
Where I don't want that.
I got my own films covers I would love to use, but I heard that thunbgen works doing that, but like I said its not even working that way.
Third party you say, how dose that work?
If the movies are named correctly, the scrapers will work 99% of the time,

To name a few
How do I use these?
Wdtv hubgen gives a choice of covers to select, but don't run these on vast file libraries, as it will crash. There were thumbgen tutorials with theme downloads on the wd community, you may have to search for them. As I have said there was a great deal of activity on thumbgen and movie sheets about 2/3 years ago.
You just drag and drop. Trial and error
There is a setting on the live to change the cover, you will have to dig around for it as I can't remember the correct steps.
This might give you an idea on how they work,, unfortunately, a lot of these programs get abandoned, but there is community support if you look for it..
