Default Guide: Changing The "Rhapsody" Boot Image & Startup/Shutdown Messages

(Watch video)

How did I do it?

The Rhapsody logo which appears after the Insignia logo during boot up isn't embedded into the firmware. It's merely a JPG located in the NS-DV Rhapsody directory. This means you can change it to anything you want.

The image in question is located in 'Service' > 'Rhapsody' on the NS-DV. You can put any size image you want in there, as long as it is a baseline JPEG. All you have to do is name it "RhapsodyLogo.jpg" before dragging it onto the NS-DV and you're set.

Startup/Shutdown Messages

To change startup shutdown messages you'll need to edit an XML configuration file named “messaging.xml” which is also located in 'Service' > 'Rhapsody'. This file is generated by the Rhapsody software. If you don't use Rhapsody, you'll need to manually create it, or download it here: messaging.xml. Within this file you can also adjust the duration of which your boot image appears on screen, disable the start up image entirely, as well as change startup/shutdown message duration, or disable them entirely.

To edit the config file, simply drag it to your desktop and open it using a simple text editor like notepad. The contents of your “messaging.xml” should look something like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
         <MessageText>Welcome, Tobey</MessageText>
         <MessageText>Walk Good, Mon </MessageText>
“MessageEnable” allows you to turn the startup or shutdown message on or off. '1' turns it on and '0' turns it off.
“MessageText” is the message which is displayed on startup or shutdown.
“MessageDuration” is obviously the length of time the message is displayed (in seconds)
“LogoEnable” allows you to turn the logo on or off. '1' is on and '0' is off.
“LogoDuration” is the length of time the image is displayed (in seconds)
“LogoPath” is path to the startup image on the player.

Once you are done customizing your configuration file, save it and drag it back into the player's “Rhapsody” directory. If your operating system asks if you want to overwrite the existing file, say 'Yes'.

That's it. Have fun!
