I just got my S50 activated last night and have been playing with it, and I love it so far. My dad has had one since it came out and I knew that they were pretty cool, but all of the pause and rewind of live radio I didnt know that it had. Hopefully it wont act up on me as I plan on using it to listen to howard live at work and dont want to start missing shows because the unit acts up.

I thought Ive seen people talk about custom wallpapers for the S50. I was wondered if I was remembering right or not? If I can get custom wallpapers where do I get them at?

There is a program on this board that you can download to do it. Me_Rubin created it. It is a great program. You can use any pics you have on your PC and upload them as wallpapers, custom icons, etc to the S50. It was an awesome program.

Do a search for S50 bitmap converter or something like that.

Here is the actual link if you want to convert your own graphics for full screen, wallpapers, or channel icons.

Don't give me all the credit, Jeff Russo and I did this together.

It should convert the file to the correct size. What type of file is it? .jpg .bmp. Did you you the browse key to find it or enter it directly? If you email me the file, I can look at it.

What error did it give you?

Ok, I got it working, now what dir is the main wallpaper?
Also, after I changed the DO NO DISCONNECT image the 1st time, it showed the image i put at the top half and then DO NOT DISCONNECT at the bottom half.
I then chaged the image again and the image i put is at the top half and the bottom half is black.
What happened to the DO NOT DISCONNECT.

Did you download the manual?

There is a section of the manul that talks about downsizing (pg 13) and clipping of the images. There is another section Pg 21 that has a table where each of the types of files are and the file naming conventions. I'm not going to read the manual for you...

Thanks a bunch Rubin.
I got everything working and changed the Do Not Disconnect Image the way I want.
I read the manual, but I didnt see anything about the Directory for the Main Wallpaper (when the S50 is first turned on without the docking station)

I don't think the main screen is a file you can replace. All the wallpaper files are in the
\SYSTEM\IMAGES\WPAPER directory.

Thanks a bunch.
I was looking in that directory, but didnt see any files.
Any guesses on what the name of the main screen wallpaper would be? (e.g. usbconnect)
The main wallpaper is an animated wallpaper as well.
