I tried mediatomb in the hope of solving the HR2x photo display aspect ratio problem. Up until now I have been using TVersity. Thanks to the great info on this thread, I built mediatomb on Ubuntu 8.04, and it worked (at least for images and music) on the first try! The good news is I was able to use ImageMagic to change the photo's aspect ratio to cancel out the HR2x's distortion. I changed config.xml's <rescalejpeg> to run this script: Code: #!/bin/sh image=1080x720 border=1080x758 result=1213x758 convert "$1" -auto-orient -resize $image +profile '*' -bordercolor black -border $border -gravity center -crop $border+0+0 -resize $result! "$2" The pixel dimensions work best with 3:2 images. They are approximate and can probably be improved. I made some images with Photoshop with round circles, displayed them on my TV, and measured them with a ruler. Then I experimented with different settings for image, border, and result until I was able to fill the screen vertically, and the circles measured round with a ruler. Note that the script adds a border (padding) on the top and bottom to compensate for the part of the image that normally gets stretched and then cropped (in the vertical direction) by the HR2x. It changes the aspect ratio slightly to compensate for the distortion introduced by the HR2x. Updated 2/2/09: The settings for image, border, result were changed, and now work well with 3:2 images in HD mode. There is no longer any need to set the HR2x to 480i original format. The above settings work best when tuned to a 720P station prior to entering Media Share. It you start with a 480i or 1080i station, the top and bottom of your images will be slightly cropped Another issue I noticed on Ubuntu 8.04: The pre-built Ubuntu ImageMagick package (version 6.3.7) has a bug that prevents auto-orient from working. I had to build and install ImageMagick from source to make auto-orient work. So here is my question: There are no photo thumbnails displayed by mediatomb. Is there a solution to this, or any hope of one? (My googling found no answer.) The lack of thumbnail support is the main feature I miss from TVersity. Thanks for the help!
