I have now purchased 3x WD TV Live Streaming Media Players (WDTVLSMP) for family & friends. Without exception, all express their concern about the current non-standard method of WDTVLSMP switch-off compared to other household consumer devices such as TV’s, DVD’s & BluRay players etc. They cannot get used to the WD remote control requirement to ‘press & hold’ POWER key for five seconds to turn off the WDTVLSMP. More times than not, they forget about ‘press & hold’….
I propose the following solution; add a remote control POWER setting to the Setup > Operation menu where a single short press (current suspend function) of remote control POWER key can be defined as follows:
- Active Standby (Suspends the device into sleep mode & turns off the video output) - Off (Media Player AND connected USB HDD shutdown)
