I am having a similar problem with m2ts files.
The video starts without sound, then after some seconds (seems to vary) it will freeze and the sound will start. When the sound has caughtup to the video it will start again.

Upgraded to V1.04.17 and now I can't access my network shares (Windows Server 2008). The WDTV box keeps saying "There is no media in the current folder". I have tried to reenter credentials and rebooted the WDTV a number of times but nothing helps...
Everything worked perfectly with the 1.04.10 firmware...

Turned on my WD TV Live HD this morning, saw the new update, stuck it on.
First, the system seems to have a problem with Samba - after startup, the first time it tries to access *any* share, it reports a failure. The second time, it works fine. Annoying, but bearable (and it also happens with the previous firmware version). The network is running a mix of Windows XP, Vista and Win7 machines - there's also a virtualised Linux machine, but it doesn't have any network shares.
The second and bigger problem is that it's no longer able to play media files properly (e.g. divx-encoded AVI files): if you navigate to one and press the "ok" button, the screen goes black and you get the circular "loading" display, bu the file doesn't actually load. However, the preview screen loads fine and if you maximise the preview to make it full-screen, it continues to play smoothly. But if you then fast-forward the video, the player takes 10-15 seconds to recover after you press play to restore 1x playback.
Is the box now doing some sort of odd pre-parse on the files? My wireless-N network is running at around 2mb a second, so there's plenty of bandwidth for the SD-resolution stuff I'm streaming.
In any case, I think I'll be downgrading the firmware this afternoon...
Disconnect the power cable from the device, wait a few seconds and plug it in again. This will fix what you describe and hopefully it won't happen again.

I use an external 3Tb drive to store all my media, and this update rendered it useless since the firmware only supports 2Tb dives...
Tech said they had problems with the hub corrupting larger drives.
HURRY up with the next firmware update so I can use my 3Tb drive again!

I cant use my 3tb external disk too.Is any way for the next firmware to passthrough dts-ma?Because the true-hd passthrough succesfully.I think most of the people need dts-ma.

Just upgraded my two WDTV Lives: one connected wired, the other wireless. I play my media from a QNAP NAS which is music, photos and movies/videos mostly divx, mp4 and mkv's. Upgrade went well, without a hitch. The wired one could not connect to the QNAP after the upgrade. I turned auto connect off, and it then connected; then I turned the auto connect back on and it works just as before now. I was the most worried about the wireless since I had read lots of complaints here, but the wireless had absolutetly no issues connecting to my QNAP after the upgrade. Nice job WD! Al

I upgraded to the current firmware. Everything went accordingly, but I lost audio for all my mkv files. AVI files and music files have no audio issues only mkv's. Guys got any advice?

Ugraded yesterday before watching a movie with the missus...
Had been about 6 months since I upgaraded.. and thought.. eh.. what the heck.. Installed, dId a factory reset and all.. wrong move... not a happy wifey!
I have a HDMI switch the that my various HDMI connections go to to break out the audio to a TOSLink (Projector and amp for sound), and if I look at the end of the optical cable when I have the WD Live HD connected no 'red light' is coming out of the TOS cable.. when I select any of my other devices ther is 'red light' coming form the end of teh TOS canle, indicating that there is HDMI audo data..
What the heck is going on at WD? every firmware seems to be getting worse and worse!
