Can you put a how to? I´m noob. I have one debian but i dont know how to put the files on the firmware.

Hello Zorander,

first thanks a lot for the good job you have done on the WDTV box.
I am a Dvico Tvix user and I just bought the wdtv cheap box to see what i can do with it.
So taking your firmware, no pb for me to add ethernet port and make link to my local NFS NAS. So everything is working perfectly.
I' reading MKV HD films directly from my NAS in 720p and 1080p with any issue.
For the Dvico, I have made a good interface with some information on each movie and i add the trailer , so some design stuff.

The default GUI of the WDTV is very poor, and after several way to find a way to crack the GUI, the only thing i found is to :
- generate in dynamic the necessary xml files from the /osd directory.
- I have made some test manually and it is sucessfull.

- I have activate the log of the main dmaosd program and i parse the log, and i can find the information I need to know :
- when I press on the enter button of the remote control (that's let me know when i entering on a folder, and i can get retrieve the name of the folder).
- I can retrieve the scanning of the different pages when I scanning my drive with the remote control.

So I have all I need to make a better GUI with thumnail, jpg background with movie info etc ...

But I'm not a linux expert.
I have two questions for you, because I can't find a solution to do one thing.

I'm using the lighthttpd with Php that is delivered on your firmware version 0.7.
So I have created page in PHP, that parse the dmaosd log and create dynamic xml page with php.
the dmaosd keep on reading in /osd its original .xml file. What I want to do, is to make a symbolic link of some original .xml file to an url of my PHP site that deliver custom dynamic xml ...
I have try to make a symbolic ling of one original .xml file to a symbolic link like 'wget -qO- hxxp:127.0.0.1/mycustom.php' file, but that doesn't run.
even if when i run the comand Wget ...., the right result is shown on the screen .
Do you know how i could make this type of link ?

A seconfd question, could you a the dnotify utility in your next release ?
Because, I can't use the web server for delivering the custom xml file, I will trigger the read access on the original file to trigger batch command.

thanks for your answer.

if it is not clear, let me know.

regards.

Hi Zorander,

I'm having some problems getting .8.4 working... Here's the contents of my messages.txt file. Any suggestions? I have a dm9601-based adapter. Would you suggest a hub? Buying the Trendnet adapter? Something else? Thank you!

Hi,
I have same usbnet adapter (dm9601 based) it doesn't work without hub. And it is so slow I coulnd't watch 720p movies.

Mines a plextor 716a and works perfect with an ide-usb adapter.

I did not modify the files. Please say me how to set up everything. Step by step and where to copy which file. Thx

I suggest a hub. (Or the Trendnet adapter). From the messages.txt log, your 9601 is detected as a usb1.1 device, dhcp was set, and you got an IP address, but you got the "tx timeout" bug when trying to mount network shares. A friend of mine here local suggested what might be the reason for the tx timeout bug: the fact that it only seems to happen to usb 1.1 devices.

By the way, where do you set the $INTERFACE var ?? I searched for it everywhere but cant find it..

Regards

INTERFACE, MDEV, and a couple of other variables get set by the kernel hotplug system whenever a hotplug event occurs. Actually, for cd.agent, don't use INTERFACE. INTERFACE is set for network interfaces only.

The only one you can really count on is MDEV: It's set to the name of the device (sda, sda1, sda3, sr0, eth0,...)
If this really is a hotplug event, and not a shell called by "mdev -s" (sda, sda1, sdb, sdb1, etc are called this way, since they were previously found by the pivot_boot's mdev), then some other environment variables are set:

(variables set when net.agent is called
INTERFACE=eth0
PHYSDEVDRIVER=rtl8150
PHYSDEVBUS=usb
PHYSDEVPATH=/devices/platform/tangox-ehci-hcd/usb1/1-1/1-1.4/1-1.4:1.0
SUBSYSTEM=net
DEVPATH=/class/net/eth0
ACTION=add

The physdevpath revells that this device is hoocked up to port 1 (/1-1/, on a hub, and the fourth port of the hub /1-1.4/.

You know, I just noticed something: This is a usb 1.1 network card, but it's dangling off of usb1 (the usb2.0 controller) instead of usb2 (the usb1.1 controller). When a usb 1.1 device is plugged directly in, it gets hoocked up to usb2. (don't confuse this with the usb/USB2/ path, which just indicates that it was within /1-2/, the second port of the hub). Maybe that's why we're having weird problems with usb 1.1 devices when NOT using a hub? (when not using a hub, hotplug revelals the path of usb2/2-2/, so then it IS using the usb1.1 controller--but I know for a fact that I get tx timeouts this way).

Anyway, the hotplug event for sr0 should have more than just MDEV set since it really is called from kernel hotplug.

A nice team is building up here...

I also think that the OSD (GUI) is very poor and, since you're adding tons of new features a nice(er) user interface is a must do. This could be done later, of course, but if it can be done in parallel it would be great!

@Air_Seb

You said that you could stream 1080p, with no hiccups: with which adapter? How big was the file? Did you let it play for a while?

thx!

Unfortunatly, DNOTIFY and INOTIFY are disabled in the kernel, and we cannot enable them without being able to start our own kernel.

Instead, I have an idea: We can use httpfs to make requests for /osd/* be redirected to http://127.0.0.1/osd/*. I'll build httpfs and include it in the next release.

I find that 1080i/1080p content plays over the network with the Trendnet USB adapter--but only when the server is an NFS server. CIFS (aka windows file sharing) doesn't quite handle it.


The next revision of ext3-boot is coming along nicely...

Hum interesting .. Hum, thanks for the tips ..
I noticed in the 0.8.4, that you already mounted /apps .. But in mtab it just shows, "none /apps ..." Is that because the folder is missing ?? For example the .system folder, or .app folder ?? Can we already create an appsomething.bin and put in that "xxxxx" folder and gets mounted there ??

So, my question ?? Have you finished the "app mounter" scrypt ?? that runs the init.d scripts, adds /app/*/bin to the path ??

Don't know if you writed it somewhere, but I didn't seen nothing about that..

Best Regards

Is there a windows NFS app ? and if so would that be sufficient ?
post #582 of 2569
A custom Kernel may be possible if we could borrow a trick from the Kurobox (and other NAS devices) and use a loader.o to load the custom kernel over the top of the booted kernel. This technique needs understanding of the assembler for the core CPU, unfortunately I'm not familiar with MIPS assembler to revise this myself.

Example of 2.6 custom kernel load can be found at: hxxp://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Using_a_custom_kernel_and_loader.o

And the source code for loader.o is at: hxxp://www.genbako.com/loader.o/org/loader.tar.gz

Of course all the Sigma proprietary code needs to be loaded in the new kernel as well; a simple test would be to load the existing kernel to see if it works.
post #583 of 2569
Just had a thought re my previous post ... the WDTV has already has some code from the MIPS based Linkstation and I've just found a loader.o for custom kernel loading for the Linkstation (that also supports later 2.6 kernels).

See: hxxp://www5.atwiki.jp/kuro-bsd/pages/132.html?PHPSESSID=51c7bb3aa6e7757497df574eb53c7c0e&flag_mobilex=1

All that is needed is to find out at what address the Kernel is loaded on the WDTV, again a test would be to load the existing kernel to see if it works.

** ext3-boot version 0.8.5 **
Available from HERE
This version now looks for *.app.bin files and mounts them in /apps/*
You can also create an empty fs image named opt.bin and it will mount in /opt
Same thing with osd.bin (mounts over /osd)
The "bin" directory in all app bin's are added to system-wide path
The "lib" directory is added to ld.so.conf and ldconfig is executed
This is all before running all the startup files:
I now call /etc/init.d/rcS (modified)
It will scan /etc/initd, as well as etc/init.d directories on all mounted app.bin files, sort them by number, and start them in order.

This version now prefers settings saved in net.config on the flash chip which override settings saved in flash (/conf), including HOST to set hostname

This version includes cd-manager-0.5 to automount cd/dvd drives (I've not tested it) Thanks, b-rad.cc

I've also included Oaf's lighttp/php server (the one he sent me some time back) in lighttpd.app.bin. This is a test/demonstration module. Files are served from www on the boot flash drive by default. All I have it doing right now is returning phpinfo();


Next I'm going to work on a fuse/filter driver that filters /osd files through php so we can get better dynamic xml files. (httpfs won't cut it, and wdfs requires web-dav support on the server)

Just a thought, and please silence me quickly if I'm totally missing something obvious, but seeing as how the only physical limitation the WD comes with in regards to transfer speed is the USB ports, and, I'm assuming the goal here is to eliminate sneakernet transfer of files that are on my PC, is it not possible to attempt direct USB communication with the PC? Is there a hardware limitation that I'm painfully unaware of prohibitting this? Is it not possible for the firmware to be tweaked into seeing the PC as just another big HDD while simultaineously having the PC see the WD as a hub with connected drives?
I was just sitting here trying to keep updated on the progress, and thinking about the speeds which were being reported, and it just occured to me that back in the early USB days I used a USB transfer cable to transfer some files between PC's with no network connection. It was painfully slow at USB 1.1 speeds but it was a 2 way interface that could be controlled from either side. With USB 2.0 it would seem a much more efficient way to go if your PC is nearby, than to have to convert it from USB to ethernet. In my case I don't actually need the WD to be connected to the network itself, just to be an extension of the computer which is already on the network.

Guys, is there any chance that i can put wifi dongle to wd_tv and from my PC upload films to harddrives attached to wd ? i dont need mega_turbo_speeds, i want upload films over night and next day watch it locally from HD
and NO i cannot unplug drives from wd everytime i download film/trailer/tvshow or whatever

please if someone can do this it will be great feature for WD

Why wouldn't you just use your pc to watch movies instead of the wdtv. Just install boxee or plex. The wdtv is for people who don't have a pc near the tv and want a media center. Just asking

Will my wireless USB dongle work with non-official firmware?
No, currently any wireless USB dongle is unsupported (stop asking about this in avsforum this is currently technical issue and we are not wasting
time with this may be in far future not now) We would have to be able to recompile the Linux kernel itself and sign the kernel image with a code
we don't have to make this work.

videomilk,
The Wife's PC near the TV is not HD capable. It stopped being an SD movie player when I got the WD. The point is to let the WD do the display heavywork. File management, storage, downloading and just being a PC is what the PC is there for now.

I'm confused; how was that any different from what I was doing (in effect at least)?

/apps/lighttpd/etc/init.d/S40lightppd.sh is called automatically during startup, which makes /tmp/www a symbolic link to /boot/www and starts the server.

If it wasn't runnign before I'd sure like to know about it.

To Fokia,
I always have problem for streaming HD mkv with CIFS sharing with wdtv and Dvico Tvix boxes. CIFS is not an efficient network protocol for sharing over a lan. So use NFS for these purposes, it will run in two minutes.
I have a NAS with Microsoft OS, so I use SFU (Services For Unix) from Microsoft to give NFS functionnality to the Microsoft OS).
Concerning the usb-ethernet adaptater, I use the apple one, it's very small and running perfectly.

No, it was not working(could not connect to the server anyhow), until I edited the config, and started manually.

Hi Zorander,
Bad news that httpfs doesn't do the job. I'm waiting your feedback for the development of a fuse/filter to be a workaround. I keep on working on the parsing of the dma log and the building of the php pages to apply dynamic modifications on the xml concerned pages.

with my asix adapter i can stream 1080p, largest file i have is ~8.5GB

====
updated cd.manager again ** cd.manager-0.5 **

original cd.manager post with instructions

here is a root bin with my changes integrated, based off ext3-boot-0.8.4 ext3-boot-0.8.4-dvd.drive.enabled

if you're scared of performing the changes then you can just use that as your root.bin

It works perfect , i have the drive in a hub. Just one problem, when i change the audio track , black video and the sound plays normal.
Thank you very much . This little box is plenty of surprises.

Ok. I must have got it wrong - CIFS/NFS consfusion/performance. I'm glad its playing fine

The only adapter I could easily find is apple's (MB air) - a bit more expensive than the others though (+8).

Does anyone have tried the new "ext-boot firmware release 0.9 or cd-manager 0.5 e.t.c" and if it does then can it tell me if i must always have plugged in the usb flash disc with the unofficial fw 0.9 on the wd hd media player or if i can plugged out and the external dvd-rom drives work just fine.

A lot of thanks.

There is two usb ports on the WDTV. The ext-boot firmware is able to boot from each port?
