[1.02.21][BUG REPORT] Device goes into screen saver mode while MKV file is playing

After upgrading to the 1.02.24 firmware I have the annoying problem where MKV file is actually playing and the WD screensaver icon goes into action after a few minutes.  Does anyone else have the same issue? Is there a hotfix for it?


How are you playing the MKVs?   Are you navigating via the WDTV menus and hitting PLAY, or are you using a DLNA server and saying “Play To?”

I’ve never had a problem with MKVs.   But I don’t use DLNA (except for PlayOn.)   I watched about 5 or 6 movies this weekend and didn’t have a problem with the Screen Saver activating in the middle of it…
