I recently bought a WD TV Live Streamer (Gen 3) and trying to set it up.
I have an external USB hard drive with a few hundred movies and TV shows on it. Mostly mkv, but there are avi and flv files as well.
Each movie/ TV show is in separate folder.

Questions:

1. The SMP gets and shows the info (director, actors, artwork...) for the files but not folders.
Is there a way to see the info when browsing the folders without getting into them? I do not wanna put all the movies in one folder.

2. Is it possible to get all that info (artwork, posters, metadata...) manually, on a computer, so the SMP understands it and reads it correctly?

I know, there are tons of posts scattered all over the place, but it is very hard to find the info that you need.

Thanks.

Really? I'd say the official thread is very hard to miss.

129 pages! I wouldn't say it is easy to find what you need.

It looks like ThumbGen can do what I want.
Can anybody help me with Moviesheets for WDTV Gen 3 using ThumbGen

Thanks
