Able to Change XMB Background Image for each video file?

Postby HawkZombie » Sun Jul 12, 2009 7:20 am

Ok, stupid question time...

Is there a way, either through PS3MS, or some other method, of changing the background image of the XMB to whatever you want it to be? I know for certain games and Blu-Ray movies it does this, but I was curious if this is something that has to be hardcoded into the files already, or if there's a way of making video files I stream do this, much like setting custom thumbnails.

Thanks!

Not possible until DLNA/Sony supports it.
I provide NO application support via PM or email, so please post your question to the forum per the Forum Rules.

I wish PS3/DNLA did. Along with a cover flow view + movie info + trailer support... basically what Media Browser plugin for Media Center can do :)

Waiting for the day browsing media on PS3 will look like this:

Have to agree that would be very cool. How often is DLNA updated anyway?

Hi Guys,

Still think this media server is the best!
Do you know if this function can be explored now after all the updates on the PS3?
YAMMM and other scrapers all automatically download the correct backdrop and fanart into the folders. Now all that is required is the mediaserver to send it and change the background when the video is chosen. - easier said than done I guess.

Thanks for the great server to date.

Or unless the hacked PS3 allows it through homebrew on the USB device they just released.

This would be cool if it could be done. I know there is a firmware update fro WDTV Live players to be able to display a full background with the desired information from IMDB on it. Don’t they use DLNA? The images could be generate here http://thumbgen.org/.

Here is a link to the WDTV moviesheet generator.
Cheers,
