I had to give up on WD TV because it doesn't play VOB files.  I now use Windows Media Center.

My WD TV Live player GEN 1 work fine. New WD TV GEN 3  Information Bar appear every time I press the Pause/Play or the OK-button. This is big problem for me ... no option to stop. How to replace the  new with the old  software. The new software is much more cumbersome and buggy ... until his old player worked fine.

The YouTube Leanback app is particularly bad, but others do it too. Memory and resources are not released after exiting various apps and the WD gets slower and slower and slower until you do a total hard reboot.  Imunerable descriptions of this can be found in the TV products|Live Streaming subforum.

I have a couple of WD Live TV and have used them for years. I am also an Amazon Prime member. The issue I have is that WD Live TV does not support Amazon Prime. Also Amazon Fire TV does not support external video sources. What needs to be done to have Amazon Prime on my WD Live TV? Possibly, a firmware upgrade?

I love my WDTV live, but can only get The Blaze on Roku..... HELP ME! This can't be that hard if a company as crappy as Roku manages to make it happen.

BBC iPlayer Radio

Status: Acknowledged
by 3 weeks ago

With the latest firmware, we UK residents have gained the latest BBC iPlayer, which I quite like, along with BBC News and BBC Sports apps. But, the previous iPlayer included radio as well as TV programmes. The new iPlayer has only TV as there is now a BBC iPlayer Radio. This app has not been incuded on WDTV so we no longer have access to BBC radio programmes.

 

For me, this is a huge downgrade, enough to give me cause to revert to the previous firmware.

 

Please include BBC iPlayer Radio with the next firmware to get us back to where we were before!

There is a lot of fluff in most of these media players. What is more basic than simply protecting your media files and finding them?

 

The basic controls of the WDTV should permit both of these objectives to be met. It doesn't.

Our WDTV overfills the screen - and the only way to rectify this problem is through settings.

 

 

I'd like adjustment to be possible from the front menu via up/down keys.

 

 

The old Netgear EVA 8000 had this feature. It was dead simple and very quick.

It's amazing how few Upnp control point packages are available for windows. Please, please, please provide us with lightweight/non fussy software which would allow us to use "play to" with any compatible WDTV file.

 

Can't understand why this industry always ends up with incompatibilities. WD should start forcing events to insure their users are protected.

I bought the latest WD TV HD Player and there is no Netflix App available. It would be great if the next Firmware would include Netflix.

 

The product number is P/N WDBPUF0000NBK-00

Qobuz support request

Status: Acknowledged
by a month ago

Qobuz (http://www.qobuz.com/gb-en/) is a high-quality (FLAC) music streaming service: think Spotify but with better quality. It's based in France and is available in several European countries including the UK.

 

Any chance of building support for Qobuz into a future firmware release?

 

Thanks

Dear Western Digital, 

I just bought a new wd tv media player. 

The first thing i did was connect it to my wireless network, then i tried to play some movies and video's, which was all great, but after that i missed one important thing...

The volume control on the remote.

I know there is an app for volume on your phone, but that's just as bad as having to grab your tv remote for every song or movie that has a different volume. 

It would be a great improvement if there would be a softwareupdate to assign any number or arrowkey on the remote controller as volume up and down. 

I googled the wd tv media player in combination with volume control. Then i saw whole communities being annoyed about only that thing. 

With volume control implemented i think it would be a really amazing media player for a big group of people. 

Please consider adding this in a new firmwareupdate. 

Kind regards,

 

Arnoud Holtzer

Netflix in Germany

Hi all,

 

is it possible to add the Netflix service to a new firmware for the WD TV LIVE HUB?

Since Sept. 2014 Netflix is also possible in Germany. It will be great to have this app on the WD TV LIVE HUB.

 

Thx and best regards

But this requirement to actually "write" media center database files onto actual media drives is a real deal breaker for me. What the **bleep** were your designers thinking?

 

 

The Netgear's EVA8000 had a selectable path to store all that stuff, and it was very fast.

 

 

Netgear is unworthy of any customers. WD appears to be different - that's why your design decision is so tragic. This should be a simple change...yet the forum references found here indicate a lack of understanding of the problem.

 

So I'll make this simple:

 

 

YOU DO NOT WRITE TO MEDIA DISKS!! YOU FILL THEM - THEN LEAVE THEM ALONE! BE HUMBLE BEFORE THE FATES. MURPHY ALWAYS WINS.

 

 

A lot of us are using hashed snapshot raid these days. That makes writing to existing disks an even bigger nono.

 

About 50TB here and climbing......

Australian Freeview Plus (Catchup TV)

Status: Duplicate Idea
by on ‎09-17-2014 07:12 PM

Australian TV has released catchup TV called freeview plus, unfortunately only some of the new tvs support it along with new set top boxes.

 

From my understanding its just a gateway to tenplay, plus7, SBS on Demand, ABC iveiw and Channel 9's Jump-in.

 

We already have support for ABC ivew, any way of getting the others as well?
