so i have the 4100SH but the user interface is not really pretty.
I went and tried to improve it, heres what I have so far.

feel free to use it for your own TViX.

I made these images anamorphic. Because I (and I guess most of us) have a 16:9 plasma display. So they will display correctly.

This is work in progress, so i'll post new stuff in this thread as it evolves.

UPDATE: NEW IMAGES see new post in this thread

For background_listview.jpg & background_iconview.jpg:
1-Rename background_listview.jpg (or background_iconview.jpg) to tvix.jpg and copy it to a folder. The file must be named 'tvix.jpg'

For upfolder.jpg:
1-Create a file named icon.tvix and copy it to a folder. The file must be named 'icon.tvix'
2-Copy upfolder.jpg to the same folder you copied icon.tvix. The file must be named 'upfolder.jpg'

For tv.jpg & tv_hd.jpg & movies.jpg & movies_hd.jpg & simpsons.jpg & seinfeld.jpg & prisonbreak.jpg & lost.jpg:
1-Create a file named icon.tvix and copy it to a folder. The file must be named 'icon.tvix'
2-Rename tv.jpg (or tv_hd.jpg or movies.jpg or movies_hd.jpg or simpsons.jpg or seinfeld.jpg or prisonbreak.jpg or lost.jpg) to the same name as you video file except for extension. If I have a video clip named myhdvideoclip.mpg, movies_hd.jpg needs to be renamed to myhdvideoclip.jpg for it to work.

Example using all of the above:
Before:
/movies/
/movies/my_movie.iso

After:
/movies/
/movies/my_movie.iso
/movies/my_movie.jpg (artwork for my_movie.iso)
/movies/tvix.jpg (wallpaper for /movies folder)
/movies/upfolder.jpg (artwork for up folder icon)
/movies/icon.tvix (enables icon browsing)

Icon browsing is a little slow with the latest 4100 firmware.

Wow, I really like your interface that you are using....

I was wondering what program you are using to create the buttons.

I was thinking about replacing my images and using yours, but I have multiple categories for my films. So I would want to create the film icons but with titles on them such as Action, Comedy, Romance, Sci-Fi, Drama, Home Movies, Transfer, Horror, and Anime.

Keep up the good work!!

My categories are pretty easy.

Anime
Action
Drama
Sci-Fi
Documentary
Television
Comedy
Home Movies
Horror

And finally I have one called "Transfer" - I used it for when I am moving files in bulk to my media server.

I also have the following categories as well.

Music
Pictures
Torrents
Movies


Here are the buttons I made. Just used a web site called cooltext.com
to make these.

Awesome work!

I have the following categories

Kids
Music Videos
Movies
TV
Documentaries

If someone could make some nice icons I'd really appreviate it. I suck at anything concerning graphics

We (someone) should really create some sort of website like "tvixgui.com" where we could share stuff....

Stubbings, do you have the PSD photoshop file you used to create the icons? I am having difficulty replicating the glass button effect that you have used.

Thanks!

I can't get these png files to work, is there a trick other than renaming them? Some of the other files you have here are fine other than the folder png files. I tried copying from here as well as the zip files. Great art work BTW!

I found I had to resize the .png files to 100x136 to get them to be recognized by my TVIX, despite the manual saying that any size will work. Maybe try that....

Yes that fixed it!! Thanks very much!

Another question, can we change the color of the green highlight of the folder names? It doesn't realy match my color scheme. I am using the 5110SH.
Thanks!

Hi, i made some wallpapers for the TviX if anyone is interested you can use them. Dont forget to change the filename to TviX.jgp and put it in the folder you want it to be seen.

Hi

This is probably a dumb question but how are you changing the icon used for a given folder? I have a 5000A and I would like to assign a different icon to each of my folders: movies / shows / archive.

The are the three directories in the root and are accessed once "video" is selected on the remote.

I have no internal drive and stream everything from a ReadyNAS.

Oh and one more thing, sometimes the TVIX won't acknowledge new picture, had this issue last night. Even though I will delete a wallpaper it will still be there when I turn it on.
Try running a movie on your PC that is on the TVIX, only for a few seconds or so , kind of kicks it to update or whatever....helped me anyway.

Guys, do you have any plans to rearrange your icons for the new Tvix 6500A?

Because with100x136 icons, when a folder is selected you just see the icon occupying a small area into a big orange border. (square)
Seems like the new size is 200x200, although i'm not 100% sure

stubbings, yours would be great as i have the same setup (SDTV/HDTV/HD MOVIES/SD MOVIES)

Anyway, thanks for your work it looks really good on the screen!
