Video thumbnails in Media Play not created

Post by megal0d0n » Wed Jan 04, 2012 11:00 pm

Hi everyone!

I use the Media Play movie function for months now. But all of a sudden, the preview thumbnails for watched videos are not created anymore. It helps a lot for orientation especially in case you use multiple folders on HDD.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find any tips on the web, only people who had the same phenomen but no clue :cry:

My TV is a LE40B620 (CI+) whose video functionality I enabled via Exlink. Since then it all worked just fine, I never changed anything else.

Any hints from you experts appreciated :idea: Thank you.

Tray Content Library app - Thumbnails cleaner.

Or manual way use telnet and delete from mtd_contents catalogs V0, V1, V2... In telnet this will be command:

Code: Select all

rm -rf /mtd_contents/V*
This work for B650 (CI) and should work for your TV too.

Thanks for the reply.
I already found the thumnails cleaner. But I guess I won't be able to use it as I don't have Content Library. At least I don't know how to find out, can you give me a hint?

Otherwise I will try out telnet but would prefer the cleaner.
Is it necessary to have the HDD attached or is it simply a write process in TV's memory only?
On my CI+ device even possible as yours is CI ?

Just check Wiki compatibility page - http://wiki.samygo.tv/index.php5/Compatibility

Content Library can't be use on your TV. But you can get telnet access, but your need ExLInk cable and info is here.

Hi, sorry for the late reply.
I did not find the time to try it - until today.
So, I managed to access Top debug menu but from there on I have no clue where the terminal prompt is.
I followed this link (http://wiki.samygo.tv/index.php5/Enable ... ces_Too.29), but no luck, can't use characters as I have CI+.

Where can I input

If your TV don't support telnet access you can tray other method to fix your problem with thumbnails.
Just reset your TV settings - press Exit button and hold it for 10-15 sec.

You sure I have no telnet? Cause I reached splDebug Menu and Menu 68 (shell). All I would need now is a way to stop exeDSP as described, I guess?

"Now you need to be fast ...

* hit CTRL-C, which stops the exeDSP binary
* immediately after that enter ( you have ca. 3 seconds ... I suggest you cut&paste this command
/mtd_boot/MicomCtrl 23 "

Is this way confirmed to work on CI+ ?

I really prefer not to reset all my TV's settings - or which settings will be resettet in particular?

Thanks!

This will not work on CI+, because character input is filtered.

As an option, full shell you can get over the 68 menu. It drops you to shell, but it is restricted. You have to enable full character input first.
