Last Firmware Upgrades (Now 1.04.17_B)
AVCHD, .M2TS gaps, freeze while playing.
.JPG files displayed in low resolution after .M2TS played. Need reboot to resolve.
About AVCHD files M2TS:
I am using WDTV Live Plus + USB Sata + HDMI_1.3 + TV1080p. Every file takes about 12 seconds to start playing (sound start unsyncronized). Then, while playing about 10 seconds, the image freeze by about 7 seconds (the sound not freeze), and then continue normally.
(It is normal to take short scenes with the camcorder, 4 or 15 seconds. This scene length is unusable with this delay and gapping problem).
I could explain more details, please ask.
About the JPEG viewing after .M2TS:
Every time I play .M2TS file, JPEG playing got a change in viewing resolution.
Try open a JPEG file, see pixelation with no details, then open a M2TS, then see the same JPEG, resolution it is the same but got low quality or large pixelation on display.
I use different files: 3 megapixels, 8 megapixels, etc.
If I power off and power on the WDTV, the problem fix… but to the next M2TS play.
Testing different Camcorders:
I have Kodak Play Sport (.MOV FullHD),
Samsung HMX-204 (.MP4 FullHD),
Canon IS5 (.AVI 640x480),
and Panasonic HDC-TM60 (.M2TS FullHD).
Problems are only in .M2TS with any compression.
Testing different Media Player:
I have Argosy HV335T Full HD and WDTV Live Plus (1.04.17_B).
Problems are only in WD.
Argosy play .M2TS with 3 seconds delay, no GAPs, perfect.
Both media players using same USB disk on different tests.
I hope some fix to this problem. Try Argosy playback codecs on Firmware.
My primary target with WD was FullHD own made videos.
Real FullHD camcorder users will love this Fix.
Ask for free for more details.
