Markco: What version were you upgrading FROM?
How do you know it's not booting? Could it be that it's started up, but the VIDEO isn't being seen any more?
How are you connected? HDMI / Component / Composite? If HDMI, try Component or Composite.
I changed the cable from HDMI to component video cable and it worked! I can't thank you enough
One thing I noticed after I reset the defaults and switched back to HDMI is that I'm now getting digital audio for my iso's without using a TOS optical cable. Unfortunately I still need the TOS optical for my MKV files. It is an improvement from the last stable version of firmware for sure. Thanks again!

Hallelujah! ((angel chorus))
Make sure you answer the questions from the WD Guys. They're the ones addressing these bugs, and it DOES sound like you got bit by the HDCP bug.

Tried it steps 1-6 twice and used a different USB drive the second time. The only thing that works is the power and USB port light. It still will not boot anymore! What do I do now or who do I contact? Thanks.
If both LEDs are on, then it's possible that your WDTV is actually booting, but is having HDMI handshaking issues. If you're willing to troubleshoot a bit, you can try disconnecting and reconnecting the HDMI cable while the WDTV is on to force it to redo the handshaking. If that doesn't work, try connecting via composite or component. You should be able to see the user interface in composite or component and then downgrade to a previously working firmware version.
Can you tell me what model TV you have? Thanks.
I got it to work now by switching from HDMI to component cable and then back to HDMI. I have a Panasonic Plasma.
The ISO menu worked for the first ISO file I tried to play. Now I can't play any ISO's. Just get a blank screen with ISO's.

Well, I tried playing some old revision3 mp which used to play with audio at normal speed and the video at 2 or 3 times faster. And this time the picture stayed mostly in sync, but there is an odd quality to it - perhaps they have to drop frames or something to sync it. But its clearly better.
However, there is still no way to REMOVE a channel you have added to the mediafly dashboard with an mcode - this would seem to be a big problem. I have added two channels, and I dare not add anymore since we apparently can't get rid of them. (This isn't related to the Mediafly account as far as i can see)
Finally, when i press "off" on the remote, the screen goes dark, but my tv never tells me it has lost signal.
Ie, the WDTV Live keeps feeding it a black screen, instead of actually shutting off.

Oh, boy... That thread got tiresome when people stopped listening to the facts.
1> The WDTV does NOT have Lip Sync timing adjustment. That's a missing feature, I wouldn't call it a bug.
2> Everyone in the thread that was specific about their setup said that they were doing VIDEO via HDMI and AUDIO via TOSLINK. By definition, that indicates a multi-path issue, and the WDTV really can't be at fault for that, because two wholly different devices downstream are doing decodes.
Is this a different case, where the Audio AND Video are taking the same path?

I have Philips 42PFL7433D/12 with firmware 000.101.000.000
1.03.32 - after off/on TV, resolution on HDMI always 720p. To fix that I must go to WD settings.
After hard power reset WD TV Live, when TV is ON - resolution 1080p.
1.02.21 have no this HDMI problem!
1.03.35 First Logo WD in 720p. When Menu must be shown, TV says "No video signal". Same time A/V output work OK.
Result: 1.03.35 fully unusable for me.
