Auto frame rate doesnn´t work

The “Auto” menu selection at the top of the list of HDMI resolutions apparently either doesn’t work or else ignores frame rate. It’s ESSENTIAL that the WD Live be able to detect a file’s frame rate and auto switch to that.

If you’re talking about the difference between PAL and NTSC, then it won’t work that way.  You need to reset the device from the back for it to detect PAL or NTSC.
