Have you guys considered using Windows 10 (or Windows 10 IoT maybe) as the operating system for the new WDTV? It would make the new WDTV very integrated with Windows 10 PCs and Microsoft services like Xbox, Xbox Music/Video, Cortana and Universal Apps like Netflix and others. In addition to possible integration with the HoloLens. It would certainly future-proof the new WDTV.
I don't like giving the TV Live Write access to my movie files. Since you can only get the cover art via setting the shared directory as the library and since you can only set a directory as the library if the TV Live as write access I'm currently having to view my movies with no cover art. I thing a good solution would be to allow for a seperate Write access for meta data and cover art than the actual media directory. Thanks.
The current operating system requires us to wait on firmware update to be able to update apps or add new apps. I propose adding Android system to our units (wdtv Live Hubs, Live,etc.) To allow us freedom to update or add our own (new) apps whenever we want.
With new movie and tv steaming sites becoming available to us users in Australia eg Netflix, I was hoping to be able to use my WDTV for linking to Quickflix. However I was unable to find any option to be able to add this option to the current list that includes many unusable items as well as the aforementioned Netflix. I sent a message to WDTV support and was advised that the option to add more sites was not available but that I should enter a request/new idea post here.
Therefore can I request a software upgrade to delete unusable/ unwanted sites and to download / add new user specific sites please.
Until this option is available my WDTV so restricted compared to the options available now and makes it an inferior item when looking at the Smart TV's and the new Smart media players.
All movie titles that begin with the word 'The' are all grouped together in the 'T's, regardless of what word comes after 'The'. For example, "The Aviator", instead of being grouped with the 'A' titles, which is where the mind expects to find it, is listed down in the 'T's. I think it'd be more ergonomic to provide a fix in the next firmware update that groups titles into the section we expect to find them. Please and thank-you!
This mainly applies to those of us with TV series. When sorting by alphabetical format, a problem arises that results in episodes 2-9 coming after say..episodes 10-19. This is pretty **bleep** incovenient especially when you are trying to binge watch Seinfeld in order and you have to jump pages (which can be a slow process if you've retrieved the metadata for each episdode). Please fix this, that, or provide me a solution which I might have overlooked (I've browsed the forums for one).
I have converted over 100 H.265 (.mp4) Blu Ray Movies and can't play on the WD-TV. The WD 2nd level technical supoort told me that WD current not supporting the H.265 (.MP4) Format. Can WD update their firm ware and start supporting the H.265 (.mp4) This standard is the industry Standard since 2013.
