I think it should be made clear this is for the WD TV gen2 not the gen1.

Re: WD TV HD Media Player product update version 1.01 - 11/18/09

Can you please tell me the difference between Gen 1 and Gen 2? I am considering buying the WD TV Live but want to make sure that I am sold the latest version. Do you think dealers will know that there is a Gen 2 available?

 

Does the Gen 2 have a different product no?

 

Sorry for all the questions. Just want to make sure.

Hi Andy, in response to your question, Gen 2 is the new version of the WD TV HD Media Player.  You can tell by the model number.  It will be a model number starting with WDBABFxxx, which will end with letters associated with the region it's sold in.

There are some minor differences between the two models. I have attached a link to the specification sheets of each drive.


This is for the Gen2

This is for the Gen1

DTS support (without a receiver) is the big change at least codec wise... there were a few other differences, but nothing huge. Its essentially a WD TV Live without the network functionality.

Dang update bricked my media player.  All I get now is a WD logo and nothing else.  Anyone know how I can recover my device or am I looking at buying another unit?????
