I have only bought my WDTV recently, and am absolutely delighted with it.
However I just worked out why I wasnt getting any sound from my PS3 to my AV reciever - the WDTV devlice is sending out an optical signal even when powered off. As I run both devices through a simple optical splitter the means that the digial audio from the PS3 is being obliterated.
Previouosly I ran the SKYHD box and PS3 into my recieved (which has a single optical in), and I always knew that whichever device I was not using had to be in “standby” when using the other devide - not an issue for me.
But now I am having to unplug the optical cable from the WDTV to alloe the PS3 to reach the reciever.
Is there a way to modify this behaviour ? Or a way to fully shutdown the WDTV (as i think it just goes into a standby mode when switched off)
