All of a sudden, for no apparent reason, I cannot log onto SlingPlayer through my WDTV.
It says "Connection lost, Unable to connect to network. Please check that your network connection is working properly. Then try again. (Code 3).
Note that the WDTV is connected to the router through WIFI and other services are working, so I know the connection is good. The SlingBox account is good--right password, etc. I can connect to slingbox though my PC, and through the ROKU using an android device to get it onto the TV. (The slingbox itself is 50 miles away)
Any thoughts as to why, all of a sudden, the WDTV portal does not work? Thanks.
Please provide a HTML agreement log - in page after connecting to a hotel wireless. current system just locks up and needs to be unplugged if I try. I currently get around this by using my lappy via hard wire, log in and accept agreement for usage, and then Ad-Hoc to the WD Live wireless with ICS active in winblows. Works like a charm, only a minor annoyance if you let it be. Great product WD. as to a wish list item.... Viewing ACAD .DXF or .DWG would be awsome thanks movieboy4fun
Take the current WDTV Live/player add a digital TV Tuner, a 2.5" 1TB HDD, and make it capable of recording in HD.
There are not many options when it comes to DVR systems, the standard DVRs that cable providers include with service are missing tons of features that WD could easily implement. The DVRs that are worth buying now are too expensive! The recording time is limited this is usually due to low capacity HDDs used in DVRs. Storage upgrades are marked up really high, way above regular HDD prices.
Time to take the WDTV to the next level.
The DVR is the "VCR" of the 21st Century. Give the consumer the power to record and upgrade their own DVR Storage using WD HDDs. Make a WDTV DVR! [WDVR}
Please create access to "Medici.TV" via WD TV Live - Worldwide Live Classical Video Streaming Subscription Service
I am posting this suggestion to WD to create access to "medici.tv" (www.medici.tv).
This subscription site provides access to live concerts, operas, classical musical festivals from more than a dozen of the World Class Orchestras. Just to name a few like New York Philharmononic, La Scala, Berlin Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic, and others.
For mobile plateforms "Medici.tv" has Apps for Tablets and Smartphones, but the small screen and tinny audio on mobile devices does not cut it.
Presently for large screen viewing and AC3 audio only Samsung Smart TV provides access directly with other Apps. To access on any other large screen smart TV one must use a Media Streaming box; which uses Adobe Flash for videos.
Presently, I am using Google TV media Streaming Box; which has a built in Browser and Google Chrome via which I log on to this site. But this is all very cumbersome.
Some of my friends who also own WD TV Live box join me in making this request that WDC consider incorporating the medici.tv site.
I am sure incorporation of medici.tv site in to WD TV live will enhance the value of already an excellant accessory in home entertainment.
I use my TV Live to play music and video files regularly.
Would it be possible to add a feature to que songs in different files in different file locations? For example: I would like to play Blur - Song 2 and after that I would like to play Adele - Rolling in the deep and after that I want Norman Greenbaum -Spirit in the sky etc. And they are all in their own album folders in different back-up folders
Would it also be possible to select multiple media server sources at the same time. I have 2 media servers running on 2 different computers. One has music and the other has video. It would be great if I could link both servers at the same time.
Then I also need a security feature where I can stop my kids from watching movies like Demolition man (lots of violence and swearing) or Saving Private Ryan (Gore) while they are still young. At the moment I have to unshare the folder on the windows PC and reshare when we want to watch a movie. Their movies can still be played as this folder stays shared. Add a security code when this folder is accessed. And KEEP this setting even when media sources have been lost or changed. Maybe have an app on the file server/NAS that keeps this info.
I have vacation pictures that are mostly pictures (.jpg), but there are a few video clips as well, either in .mov (camera) or in .mp4 (Samsung Galaxy S2). I'd like to do a slideshow of a given folder that displays the pictures *and* the videos, in order. It looks like the photo app shows only photos and the video app shows only videos.
Is there any easy way to show them together in a natural sequence? Am I the only one who wants this?
I am still using an original Xbox with Xbmc for most of my video needs. This setup is not good for HD video though. However, it has a great UI.
I have a couple WD TV Streaming devices. The UI could be slightly better but it is OK. What I really want though is a 1 minute and a 10 minute video jump in both forward and reverse directions. My setup above has this and it is wonderful. Miss something that someone said, use the 1 min reverse jump. 30 seconds would be OK too.
I use the WD TV Streaming unit in my vehicle for long trips. Kids love it. I load up a thumbdrive with a bunch of their movies, connect to the car's vAV input, and they really enjoy it. The problem is sometimes the unit doesn't remember it's last location. So after a rest stop they have to press then fast forward button to get back to the left-off location. Entering a time is slow. So haveing an immediate 10 minute video jump would work really well.
Put this feature in and I will immediately dump my 3 Xbox/Xbmc setups and buy 3 more WD devices.
