WDLXTV-Live Firmware

WDLXTV-Live is a souped up unofficial firmware for the Western Digital WD TV Live. It is based off of the 1.02.21 firmware, but with many extra features. This is a permanent flash, just like an official upgrade. It enables a wide range of extra functionality which is missing from the official firmware, such as bittorrent, webserver, NZB, SSH, FTP, NFS, etc.

Different Version

  • Normal = The Normal version requires Flashing the Firmware into the WDTV Live
  • Minimal = The Minimal version is the same as the Normal version, but without php, python, perl, nzbget, deluge, lighttpd
  • Ext3 = This version is used for testing purposes. It is identical to the normal flashed version. The main difference is that ext3-boot-live is pivoted into and run directly off your external device. This means ext3-boot-live gives you full read/write permissions.

To flash firmware
Place wdtvlive.bin on a memory stick along with wdtvlive.ver and insert it into your WDTV Live.
When asked if you want to upgrade your firmware, say yes.
The WDTV Live will reboot and after several minutes the whole flashing process will complete and reboot again.
Upon successful flash you will see WDLXTV_Live in the about screen of system settings.
The firmware no longer needs to be on anything attached to the WDTV Live.
Downgrade instructions are always provided at the bottom of the README which is included in every release’s zip.

Laura Pausini – Con la musica alla radio

http://www.youtube.com/v/1qTrXsWdfVs&hl=en&fs=1&

Seduti qui, per terra così,
in questa camera da imbiancare,
felici di non chiedere di più.

Dimmi di sì,
anche se qui c’è solo un tavolo come altare,
e un pane da dividere.

Avvicinati anche tu
e permettimi di più,
la tua bocca sulla mia
per non andare via.

E BALLIAMO A PIEDI NUDI
CON LA MUSICA ALLA RADIO,
PIÙ FORTE MENTRE GLI ANNI PASSANO.
IN QUESTA CASA CHE PROFUMA
IN OGNI ANGOLO,
FAREMO IL NOSTRO SIMBOLO.

Avremo anche noi dolori
che forse non sapremo evitare,
nemmeno affrontare,
ma niente di noi perduto andrà.

Semplicemente vincendo l’incuria del tempo,
danzando in due a passo lento,
con sentimento come adesso qua.

Il tuo sguardo resterà
senza alcuna impurità,
in ricchezza o povertà
non si consumerà (non si consumerà).

E BALLIAMO A PIEDI NUDI
CON LA MUSICA ALLA RADIO,
PIÙ FORTE MENTRE GLI ANNI PASSANO.
IN QUESTA CASA CHE IO
AMO IN OGNI ANGOLO
E DOVE MI MEDESIMO.

Tu fallo con me.
E non lasciarmi mai da sola
neanche un attimo,
non farlo o ne morirò.

Simon And Garfunkel – The sound Of Silence

http://www.youtube.com/v/pDYxgDO5bCI&hl=en&fs=1&

Hello darkness, my old friend,
Ive come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
neath the halo of a street lamp,
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of
A neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one deared
Disturb the sound of silence.

Fools said i,you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you,
Take my arms that I might reach you.
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
And echoed
In the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning,
In the words that it was forming.
And the signs said, the words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls.
And whisperd in the sounds of silence.
