    anyone?

    Yeah, I done it the other day on a Live. Just format a USB drive using FAT32 and copy the files on to it. When you load up the WDTV you will see an option to update the firmware. If the option does not show, then it thinks the WDTV firmware currently installed is newer. In this case, open the wdtv version text file in the root directory on the USB key and change the version number to something higher than the current firmware version installed. i.e. VERSION='1.20.04.WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.1.9-6'
    LOCATION='wdtvlive.bin'

    Good luck.

    What does it do?

    its custom firmware on a wd tv live. just gives a few more options on it

    Yes, definately worth doing. It has a much nicer look and you can install Movie Sheets. Just download Thumbgen and it is a simple process to get them working. Makes your folders have that jukebox feel.
