Hi

We need m3u8 stream support for wd tv.

IPTV support is very important. There are unofficial firmware that support iptv , but I want to official firmware without any modifications supported iptv.

When using the "Get Content Info" scrapper for TV Shows, the downloaded thumbnail is FULL Resolution and a Large File Size

 

ie. 680(w) x 1000(h)  around  500kb

 

This causes Massive Navigation Slowdown browsing in all views.

 

The problem does not apply to "Movies" as the downloaded thumbnail is automatically scaled down and recompressed

 

eg. 154(w) x 231(h)  around 10kb

 

For a visual difference comparison, here is a picture that illustrates the problem

In vielen Fällen ist  das WD live TV mit einem Netzwerk verbunden und greif auf Daten in NAS Servern zu. Es wäre schön, wenn das Gerät die "magic pakets" schicken würde um die NAS Serveer aufzuwecken und im online Betrieb zu halten. Meine NAS laufen nicht im 24/7 Modus. Ich muss immer einen PC starten um die NAS aufzuwecken.  Braucht natürlich auch NAS Server, die das "magic paket" verstehen. Trotzdem würde das versenden der "magic pakets" keinen Schaden verursachen und wäre auch nur ein minimaler Eingriff

I think the title is self-explaining.

By default I keep the audio output set to SPDIF, connected to the home theatre amplifier, but it's frustrating to have to change the setup if I want to listen audio from the tv

When "DVD Menu" (under Video Settings) is enabled, "Skip to desired time" is not available in the playback-controls when playing DVD-iso or VIDEO_TS-folder.

 

With "DVD Menu" turned off, the "Skip"-option is displayed.

 

May also apply to Bluray-isos, though I haven't tested it yet.

 

Applies to WDTV SMP 2.02.32 (and all previous versions)

I have been using WDTV for years now. The WDTV Live was a big step forward, but unfortunately technology and the requirements and expectations of a robust media player are advancing. Unlike most of your users(it would seem), I use my WDTV primarily for music playback on three seperate sound systems in my home, which are each connected to a WDTV by optical digital output to an external high performance DAC. . All of my music is kept on a NAS(3TB MyBook Live) I know that I am not the only user that uses WDTV  in this manner. Your product would be enhanced greatly and your market penetration expanded by making the following enhancements to your next gen WDTV for use as a worthy network music player in addition to its' current function/feature set.

 

1. Allow digital pass-through of Hi Def music through the non HDMI digital outputs.(see item 2) This means all 24 bit sampling rates: 24/48 thru 24/192. I pass the digital signal off to an external 24/192 DAC. Most of my music files are 24/96 which do play back, but only at a reduced bit rate( I believe it is 48 kHz). 88.2 kHz files will only play back through the HDMI out and most external DACs do not have an HDMI in. Yes, many of us prefer high performance stereo to low-fi home theater receivers.  

 

2. In addition to the optical digital output, there should also be a coaxial output. It would add much needed flexibility.

 

3. Spend some more development time on the music database functions. ie. more robust sorting/grouping features like genre/album, or artist/album etc. Also, when I group by "All Albums" and select an album it automatically starts playing. I would like to see the track list for that album presented first so that I can choose which track I would like to hear or play first. This could also be accomplished by adding an "album/track" grouping(see item 2)

 

 

An increasing number of users are wanting to use their media players for more than just accessing online content. WDTV has led the way into this arena by offering USB ports and WiFi access to DLNA devices at a reasonable price. However, as more users are now downloading hi-def music files from services like HDTracks, or Linn, or Acoustic Sounds for playback from a centralized home server(like NAS), WD needs to add Hi-Def music file functionality to its range of capabilities. Currently my only remedy for this is to have both a WDTV(for web content), as well as a Bluesound Node($450) for Hi-Def music files. If WDTV could pass Hi-Def music digitally via SPDIF, it could be used for both music and web content(even if the user must use an external DAC for Hi-Def conversion).

 

Thank you for hearing me out.

In my network there are a couple of hidden samba shares. It's impossible to connect them. Provide the possibility to enter share names and credentials directly (adress, username and password) instead of searching for them.

Netflix is coming to Australia and New Zealand in March of 2015! Can we please get the app enabled for these regions in the various WD products.

 

Opening the idea in anticipation that it might happen sometime late 2017 if past performance is anything to go by.

Now, that there are the new UHD TVs I need a new WD Media Player, that supports, additionally to all the old ones, the new Interfaces like HDMI 2.0 and Video formats for ultra high definition.

 

Unfortunately there exists no useful Player for this operations, and i would really like to have a new one from WD

 

- Very comfortable to play all formats (Videos, Pictures, Music) with fluently play of the videos

- Supports 4K Resolution at 60p and HDMI 2.0

- Supports external HDDs, expecially with high capacity (MyBook 4TB)

- It would be nice to have an ethernet port to storage the data on the HDDs, connected to the WD Player, by a PC
   (Like a network Storage)

 

I (and lots of my friends) would really appreciate if there were such a player from WD!

Pick up where we left off.

Hello. I've already transfered several hundred videos to my new wd 2tb mybook.

 

Everytime I turn it back on, I have to scroll thru the videos to find where I left off.

 

There needs to be a way to do that automatically, indeed it's surprising there isn't already such a function.

 

Make it so, number one....

i have to turn off Information Bar

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.

Amazon Prime on WD TV Live

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?
