==== Wiki Maintenance ====
 +
'''The wiki pages and general WDLXTV documentation is the responsibility of the users!'''<br>The developers have limited time to play with new features and to work on the code and integration, so they usually don't want to spend more time writing documentation. New features or plugins are usually explained in their forum threads but such information can get lost in time and is hard to search. So, as a new (or as a seasoned) WDLXTV user it is your duty to keep the wiki up to date by adding new articles or improving existing articles, making WDLXTV configuration easy for the noobs that will come after you.
 +
 +
If you've just learned how to do a cool new thing with your WDTV, share the steps you used with others or improve somebody else's guide.
 +
 +
You can login and edit the wiki with your forum credentials. If you want to create a new page, PM one of the developers and he will create the page for you.

Wiki Maintenance

The wiki pages and general WDLXTV documentation is the responsibility of the users!
The developers have limited time to play with new features and to work on the code and integration, so they usually don't want to spend more time writing documentation. New features or plugins are usually explained in their forum threads but such information can get lost in time and is hard to search. So, as a new (or as a seasoned) WDLXTV user it is your duty to keep the wiki up to date by adding new articles or improving existing articles, making WDLXTV configuration easy for the noobs that will come after you.

If you've just learned how to do a cool new thing with your WDTV, share the steps you used with others or improve somebody else's guide.

You can login and edit the wiki with your forum credentials. If you want to create a new page, PM one of the developers and he will create the page for you.


Features

These are some of the new features that WDLXTV adds to the WDTV platform:

  • Bittorrent client (rtorrent + rutorrent)
  • Usenet download client (nzbget)
  • DAAP/Roku server (through mt-daapd)
  • NFS sharing (client and server)
  • User-generated movie sheets
  • Apache web server
  • FTP server
  • SSH server
  • Streaming from online sources through third-party plugins, allows you access to services such as Picasa, Grooveshark, Apple Trailers, and much more - over 30 plugins available at this time
  • Shoutcast
  • YoutubeHD (WD only allows for SD content)
  • Custom applications through app.bin or Optware, adding applications such as Asterisk, Mediatomb, etc...
  • WDTVExt, allowing custom plugins that can alter the functionality of the OSD (BaseFW 1.02 ONLY)
  • Third party OSD themes
  • Custom wallpaper and screen saver image
  • Customizable IR remote functions
  • ...and a lot more


Release information


Support
