Please hold off on going to the "What's in this Update?" on the Live Hub.  It may cause issues with your device.  We are presently looking into it.  Thanks.

 

[edit 3/2/12]

 

There shouldn't be any issue with doing the update.  I'm checking to see if the other has been fixed yet.

Are they nixing Blockbuster on Demand?????

[ Edited ]

The firmware update page states, "Blockbuster video download service will no longer be supported on the WD TV as of 3/31/2012. You will still be able to watch your purchased videos." Is this referring to Blockbuster on Demand or is it something else? I'm curious because that's probably the way we rent the majority of our movies. If anyone can elaborate that would be great. Thanks.

Re: Are they nixing Blockbuster on Demand?????

Yes, this is referring to Blockbuster on Demand.  You should've recieved an email that stated the following:

 

"We have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that, as of 3/31/12, the Blockbuster app will no longer be available on your Western Digital Player. We are updating our technology platform and will not be able to continue supporting your device.

The good news is that you can still stream your movies on your PC or MAC and other supported devices.

We offer many other ways to watch the movies you've already rented or purchased:

Purchases: Your purchased movies will still be in your Blockbuster On Demand Library. You can watch them on any of our other devices, or stream them via PC or Mac. See a list of supported devices.

Rentals: Please watch your rentals by 11:59 PM ET on 3/29/12. If you don't watch by then, you can watch on another supported device or stream via your PC or Mac. See a list of supported devices.

We are hard at work improving our service and plan to add new features and devices throughout the year. Thank you for being a Blockbuster customer and we apologize for any inconvenience this transition may cause.

Your friends at Blockbuster"

Worked fine here.

 

Thumbnail fix and maybe the media library will help me.

 

Shame streaming Baseball seems to be a higher priority that Theming. :smileysad:

Re: New Release - Firmware Version 3.03.13 for WD TV Live Hub (2/29/12)

Update completed via Internet in 10mins -  5min download, 5min install

Everything still appears to be working, music plays, photo's show, movies are watchable.

 

Bit disappointed BBC iPlayer wasn't included in this release, as it has with the LSM.

And that Twonky Server still hasn't been upgraded.

 

However upgrade is clean, and worry-free ... good times :smileyhappy:

Re: Are they nixing Blockbuster on Demand?????

Thanks for the prompt reply, I found a whole thread dedicated to this shortly after posting.

 

I must say, this really stinks!!! That is probably the main function of my device right now. I much prefer the Blockbuster On Demand service that lets you download the whole movie to the streaming services. Our local high speed internet provider can't seem to offer a stable connection. Anyway, can anyone recommend an alternative that offers recent movies and lets you download the whole movie before playing? The streaming and buffering option just doesn't work at my house.

I'll upgrade tonight, and test thumbnails. As this is a key issue for some.

Re: New Release - Firmware Version 3.03.13 for WD TV Live Hub (2/29/12)

updated!
Now we're talking.... thumbnails look a lot better
Local movie sheets are now working without internet connection

It could be me cleaning up the HDD but it seems backdrops load faster in Gallyery mode.

It will still limit a couple of themes due to the thumbnail cropping, however the basics are working in appropriate quality again and I am satisfied. Good Job
