I have a few movies and TV shows on my desktop PC that I want to stream to my TV downstairs.
I already used a program to get movie/TV show banners, pictures, etc.
Will this media player display all of that out of the box or will that require some kind of hack? (B-rad, etc)
the wdtv live-s displays the embedded album art. i'm at work, so sorry can't take a pic of how it looks like right now, but basically in "now playing" mode, it shows a small thumbnail of the album art at the top left corner, and on the right beside the thumbnail is the artist and album name. the rest (and big part) of the screen below it shows a list of all the songs in the album and highlights the one currently played. i know a pic is worth a 1,000 words .... but like i said ... im not beside my tv now.

I think many people have there media files organised this way.
Is there away to achieve this ? Any help appreciated. Thanks.
If this can not be done where would be the best place to post for this as a request in next firmware, so that WD read it. Thanks again.
hi tony. i've replied to u on the "other" forum, but will re-post it here just in case someone else in here has other thoughts on this.
I organise my folders in that way as well. as it is, i dont believe the current firmware is able to show the meta-info at the folder level .... the info only shows up at the video-file level. i know it's possible with custom firmware in the older wdtv live .... so i believe it's technically possible. WD just needs to get this to work properly in its future firmware upgrade (i hope).

Or is that not possible?
which HD audio codec specifically?
as kingpcgeek pointed out, the wdtv live-s doesn't support DTS HD-MA (at the moment at least). however, it does bitstream Dolby TruHD to your Denon AVR.
