    Hey Guys,
    My WD Live Streaming Box has got a incorrect information on a couple of my films. I have seen on my DVD ISO rips that I have the option to choose anchange the film info, but it does not seem to work for my BluRay ISOs or MKV's. Any help would be greatly appreciated....

    Thanks in advance

    Try renaming the file so its more clear of what the title is. (ie. Thunderball (1965).mkv)

    If you still have issues or want to manually edit any info, I use a great program called WDTVHubGen which pulls data from and and will create the correct data for each of your movies. It was written for the WDTV Live Hub but works with the WDTV Live SMP as well.
    Using Thunderball as an example. It will rename the video file with the correct name, ie: Thunderball (1965).mkv, create a Thunderball (1965).jpg cover image and a Thunderball (1965).xml file with the movie info.

    You can download it from here:

    I just purchased Live SMB to replace my wdtv 1G. Most of my movies were given the correct info, but my tv shows are a mess. I divide them into seasons, then usually name each episode 01, 02, 03, etc., with jpg's named the same as each episode, as was how the old unit seemed to work. So out of hundreds of episodes, about half show info for weird old movies that i guess i have to go through one by to remove. Sometimes, i remove the info, and the old jpeg that i had placed returns as the attached pic, but not for all of them. For example, Episode 03 of the TV show "Boss", becomes a movie called 03/06. Not only does it replace the episode info with the movie info, but changes the folder image as well. looks like i have a dozen folders of the same movie. program above looks perfect, but i'm using OSX.
