Re: Media Library WdTV Live Compiling for ever........?

Yes you can download previous versions of the firmware...but they are compressed and I couldnt extract them!

[ Edited ]

This could be a silly question, but have you check that the drive hasn't got read-only protection box checked?

Re: Media Library WdTV Live Compiling for ever........?

I have two boxes and both have no problem compiling the Media Library on 1.09.10 (they're using the beta release)

I have a family member that ugraded to 1.09.10 through the New FW prompt (wireless) and his just compiled for ever.

not sure why this is happening or if there is a different between the two 1.09.10 FW's (shouldn't be) but rolling back and upgrading again fixed this for him.

Re: Media Library WdTV Live Compiling for ever........?

it does seem very odd...can I ask how your family member extracted the previous version of the firmware..  As I said previously I downloaded them but couldn't extract them....they weren't recognised by anything I have.

Re: Media Library WdTV Live Compiling for ever........?

all you do is unzip the file (Rollback_WD_TV_Live_Gen3_1.08.17.zip)

put the three files (wdtvlivegen3.bin, wdtvlivegen3.fff & wdtvlivegen3.ver) it creates into a thumb drive (make sure you don't put it into a folder) then reboot the SMP.

nothing to it really.

hope that helps.

well you only need to unzip the one file you downloaded (Rollback_WD_TV_Live_Gen3_1.08.17.zip)

you can do that with winzip, winrar or any program that reads .zip files.

Re: Media Library WdTV Live Compiling for ever........?

I downloaded winzip, extracted to a pen drive and stuck it in the front USB after start up.  It "upgraded" firmware to the previous version (oddly enough the screen displayed it as 2 08 17 not 1 08 17) I then took the chance to upgrade properly to the latest version again...I'm now waiting to see if the hang is cured.  If not I'll just go back to the previous version again.  Thanks for your help...I'll keep you posted!
