The WD TV Live has an extensive settings menu where WD TV Live users change the necessary settings of the machine to suit their media browsing needs, including the DVD cover art option.

    Connect the external hard drive that you are using with the WD TV Live, using the hard drive's USB cable.

    Go to the folder where you keep your DVD cover art and select the DVD cover art you want to use for your DVD movie. Right-click the DVD cover art file. Click "Copy" from the context menu that comes up. Right-click the folder that the DVD movies are saved to on the external hard drive.

  3. 3

    Name each DVD cover art ".jpg" file to the exact same name as the DVD movie you have saved on your external hard drive. For example, if you own the DVD movie "Love Actually," name the DVD cover art file "Love Actually" without the quotations. Continue this process for all your DVDs.
