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

Vudu has subtitles that can be turned on and off easily on the Playstation.

 

Please enable the same subtitle on/off button for the wdtv live.

Hi there,

 

Many events are live streamed on the BBC iPlayer (for instance they have up to 15 live streams for the Commonwealth Games at the moment):

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/commonwealth-games/28249232

 

Could you please add support for live streaming of such live streams to WD devices.

 

Many thanks.

Live YouTube streaming was made widely accessible during December 2013:

http://thenextweb.com/google/2013/12/12/youtube-expands-live-streaming-channels-still-requires-accou...

 

As a result of the breaking down of the barriers, streaming on YouTube is becoming more commonplace.

It would be nice to be able to access those live streams through WD Live devices. 

 

That is all.

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}

Video thumbnails

Make video thumnail files priority over embedded images. Changing/deleteing an embedded thumbnail in a 6+gig video file takes forever!

Afterall... whats the point in having a thumnail file if you're going to ignore it?

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.

It would be nice if there was an option to enable/disable the resume/restart pop-up for videos on the WDTV Live SMP.

 

The bulk of my time I prefer to always start a movie from the beginning and not pick up where it left off.

It looks like there is a simlar option for music, but nothing for video.

 

Perhaps a set of options would be:

- Prompt [Default]

- Always Restart

- Always Resume

 

Thanks!

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 a hard time finding what stuff I just added, in particular when browsing a network share. It would be nice to be able to sort this by date.

I have searched this forum and couldn't find anything about this. My apoligies if it's already been asked.

 

After liasing with the very helpful David from WD Service and Support, i discovered that WDTV Live doesn't support 5.1 in Netflix.

 

This is most dissapointing as i feel that i'm not getting the full movie experience out of Netflix with this box for which i'm paying for.

It's coming up to 3 years since this box was released and it still doesn't support this feature. Why on earth not?

Am i the only one that feels this way. It clearly says on the box that it supports Dolby Digital 5.1 but as David pointed out, this is only for downloaded movies played from a usb drive.

 

I find it amazing that the box can do full HD for Netflix but only stereo sound.

It's time for that to change. Please WD, can this be added?

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?

hi guys,

 

i love the wdtv live and have been using it for quite some time now.

however, what i truly miss is the support of HBO GO, just like you guys for example support Netflix.

 

the google chromecast will support HBO GO soon, but off course I'm not interested in buying that, since i have a wdtv.

:smileyhappy:

 

i hope you guys can make this happen?

Pretty much any of the services as long as a external device was attached.

Video jump by 1 minute and 10 minutes

Status: Acknowledged
by on ‎06-11-2014 09:39 AM

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.
