Just got the update notification an hour or so ago, so I went ahead and did it.

 

 

Still having HDMI issues with my Vizio M260VA;

No sound at all over HDMI and Neflix starts up fine, but when I try to actuall try to play something I get a black screen and no audio. 

 

Maybe next time?

On my unit, this is resolved by the Plus refusing to enable 12-bit color. :smileyvery-happy:

 

I'm not that bothered (after all, it achieves nothing when there is no media available to take advantage of it).  Just curious whether anyone else has successfully enabled it.

I have a LG TV and I can enable it. However I see no difference.

Screen Saver weird behavior with this new Firmware Version 1.03.49_B

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

Tonight, when I turned on my WDTV Live Plus, it opened a notice screen about new firmware availability. I accepted the upgrade and it seemed ok at first. But when watching a movie I was taken by surprise by the screen saver logo after a while (the sound didn´t stop as the movie was going on behind the wd logo). I pressed OK on the remote and the image came back. Then, exactly 5 min later, the same issue, and again, and again... 5 minutes has always been my screen saver configuration idle time and this weird behavior never occured before. How can I fix this? I just can´t use it without screen saver in order to avoid burn in in my plasma TV.

Anyone has a guess? Or should I return to good old 1.03.39?????

 

Thanks for any response,

Luis

Re: New Firmware Release - Firmware Version 1.03.49_B for WD TV Live Plus (11/16/10)

I'm being offered 1.03.49_B when I start up WDTV Live Plus.  I'm happy with the current firmware and don't want to upgrade. Is there a way to turn off the notice of an available firmware upgrade everytime I start up? Before getting the WDTV I used a Samsung bd-p3600 Blu-ray dvd for streaming.  Got tired of the firmware messages and finally let it do the upgrade over the internet..  It is now an expensive door stop. (or a brick as it is more commonly called)

 

Thanks
