Bugs in Firmware Version 1.04.10_V -- Summary only


#1

This is a summary thread, do not discuss. Add found bugs in a matter of fact way by copying the list and adding to it. Thay way, the last message should always be the only one that new people and WD staff need to read. Feel free to sort, cluster, prioritise. Link to posts for more information or copy from other posts.

Here is a start of the list with things I picked up:

  • Digital Audio via HDMI, DTS and DD 5.1 does not work (possibly an EDID issue). 1.02.21 did not have this issue
  • Playon does not work
  • MKV files seems to stutter
  • Network shares issues (please specify in more detail)
  • User interface translation issues, especially into German
  • 12 bit color problems
  • 24 Hz problems, Menus slow, color banding
  • Fade in/out broken
  • Audio too loud and distorted
  • Box keeps starting at 720p (On mine that just the lowest compatability start splash screen, after boot it’s in correct mode)

Please copy the list and add, explain, expand but do not discuss.

  • issues playing some avi files
  • freezing when using flingo
  • jerky playback on Tekzilla
  • slow responsiveness when using pause/play/ffw (flingo)

#7
  • When displaying photos, the black level sent to the TV is much higher than it was in version 1.02.21. Pictures look washed out and over exposed.
  • Setting the display resolution to 1080p/24Hz/12 bit with any color space setting (RGB High, RGB Low, or YCbCr) causes distinctive banding on the blue menu background. This color banding disappears when switching to 1080p/60Hz /12 bit.
  • The HDMI output option for 1080p 23.976 Hz has been removed.
  • Display resolution defaults to 720p after AC power has been removed for a few hours.

Downgrading to firmware to 1.02.21 fixes all of the issues above completely.


#8

Fast forward (>4 times, or skip 10 minutes) on transport stream files results in playabck starting from the beginning.


#9

Don’t think anyone understood what the OP was intending here. I was going to point out that the latest version has a problem playing Vorbis audio, so going by what the OP said, I should copy the previous complaints and add the Vorbis complaint at the end. LIke so:

  • Digital Audio via HDMI, DTS and DD 5.1 does not work (possibly an EDID issue). 1.02.21 did not have this issue

  • Playon does not work

  • MKV files seems to stutter

  • Network shares issues (please specify in more detail)

  • User interface translation issues, especially into German

  • 12 bit color problems

  • 24 Hz problems, Menus slow, color banding

  • Fade in/out broken

  • Audio too loud and distorted

  • Box keeps starting at 720p (On mine that just the lowest compatability start splash screen, after boot it’s in correct mode)

  • foldersymbols in the middle of the thumbs (annoying!)

  • When playing DVD and hit pause, after resume, the info bar does not go away.

  • Screen Alignment problem on a 4:3 TV when using Flingo and facebook - the far left and right of the screen are cutoff.

  • Cant skip to the next/previous song in a Deezer playlist.

  • Flingo freezes when browsing channels

  • DVD Navigation - Progress bar does not hide after skipping chapters

  • Login Problems with mediafly - login, power off and then go back to media fly and select My Channels and you’ll get a no media in current folder message

  • Menu navigation sometimes still slow, but after some time of watching movie it’s become faster.

  • It’s slow react on enter button (on 1.03.49 was faster) when moving in settings or watch movie, sometimes need push it twice. 

  • Animation of pics while menu navigations is strange, like garbage from another pictures while moving.

  • After starting play avi xvid file, push option button, option menu appear and icon of audiotracks have info: no audiochannel, but if i move menu < or > then it show correct audioinfo

  • Display resolution defaults to 720p after AC power has been removed for a few hours.

  • Fast forward (>4 times, or skip 10 minutes) on transport stream files results in playabck starting from the beginning.

  • Vorbis audio has very annoying and frequent intermittent pops and clicks. I have videos (MKV: x264, vorbis) that previously played fine, but now the audio gets the previously mentioned pops and clicks noises throughout the video - it gets worse the longer you play the video.

-OP, feel free to comment if this is not what you were intending.

As a side note; It would be really great if WD would make this a standard bug reporting layout for future firmware screw ups. For as many months as this took to come out and to have so many problems is really pathetic.

Of course, the 48-page threads to report problems is even more pathetic. Do you really expect me to read 48 pages to see if someone has already posted my problem. I say, “Come on!!!”

#15

File manager is broken. I try delete from usb hdd folder with 3 files inside, first problem,

no highlight of action icons. When first 2 files was deleted, indication hangs.

Only back batton allow go out from it.

In addition, when trying to move a file from one Hdd to another (USB1 to USB2) using Settings\File Management, the status indication also hangs on 100%, does not report the operation as successfully completed, and only the back button allows you to go out from it.

  • no highlight of action icons. When first 2 files was deleted, indication hangs.
  • Only back batton allow go out from it
  • In addition, when trying to move a file from one Hdd to another (USB1 to USB2) using Settings\File Management, the status indication also hangs on 100%, does not report the operation as successfully completed, and only the back button allows you to go out from it.

Let’s try and keep this format from descending back into chaos. Kraemer_sg had a great idea to post only summaries and to include all previous entries and I’d hate to see it fall apart again after we just got it back on track. Otherwise what keeps this thread from becoming just as problematic as the other firmware complaint thread that is very tedious to read?

Great idea, shame people aren’t reading before replying.

For those with short attention spans:

READ THROUGH THE LIST FIRST.  IF YOU HAVE A NEW ISSUE, COPY/PASTE THE ENTIRE LIST, ADDING YOUR NEW ISSUE AT THE BOTTOM.

  • Digital Audio via HDMI, DTS and DD 5.1 does not work (possibly an EDID issue). 1.02.21 did not have this issue
  • Playon does not work
  • MKV files seems to stutter
  • Network shares issues (please specify in more detail)
  • User interface translation issues, especially into German
  • 12 bit color problems
  • 24 Hz problems, Menus slow, color banding
  • Fade in/out broken
  • Audio too loud and distorted
  • Box keeps starting at 720p (On mine that just the lowest compatability start splash screen, after boot it’s in correct mode)
  • foldersymbols in the middle of the thumbs (annoying!)
  • When playing DVD and hit pause, after resume, the info bar does not go away.
  • Screen Alignment problem on a 4:3 TV when using Flingo and facebook - the far left and right of the screen are cutoff.
  • Cant skip to the next/previous song in a Deezer playlist.
  • Flingo freezes when browsing channels
  • DVD Navigation - Progress bar does not hide after skipping chapters
  • Login Problems with mediafly - login, power off and then go back to media fly and select My Channels and you’ll get a no media in current folder message
  • Login Problems with Deezer- login, power off and then go back to deezer and select My music->playlists and you get a get a no media in current folder message
  • Menu navigation sometimes still slow, but after some time of watching movie it’s become faster.
  • It’s slow react on enter button (on 1.03.49 was faster) when moving in settings or watch movie, sometimes need push it twice. 
  • Animation of pics while menu navigations is strange, like garbage from another pictures while moving.
  • After starting play avi xvid file, push option button, option menu appear and icon of audiotracks have info: no audiochannel, but if i move menu < or > then it show correct audioinfo
  • While watching movie menu that appear after pushing option is not translated (wdtv is set to russian menu language)
  • File manager is broken. I try delete from usb hdd folder with 3 files inside, first problem, no highlight of action icons. When first 2 files was deleted, indication hangs. Only back batton allow go out from it.
  • Problems while audio channel switching, sometimes it switch on wrong channel but it show in menu right channel. Sometimes while switching sound out of sync.
  • On another forum peoples have problem: Start dvd watching from smb share via dvd menu - it’s slow. But if start dvd via play button without dvd menu all goes fine.
  • issues playing some avi files
  • freezing when using flingo
  • jerky playback on Tekzilla
  • slow responsiveness when using pause/play/ffw (flingo)
  • When displaying photos, the black level sent to the TV is much higher than it was in version 1.02.21. Pictures look washed out and over exposed.
  • Setting the display resolution to 1080p/24Hz/12 bit with any color space setting (RGB High, RGB Low, or YCbCr) causes distinctive banding on the blue menu background. This color banding disappears when switching to 1080p/60Hz /12 bit.
  • The HDMI output option for 1080p 23.976 Hz has been removed.
  • Display resolution defaults to 720p after AC power has been removed for a few hours.
  • Display resolution defaults to 720p 60Hz from 1080p 50Hz after device has been in standby mode for one day.
  • Fast forward (>4 times, or skip 10 minutes) on transport stream files results in playaback starting from the beginning.
  • Fast forward with some DivX videos results in playback starting from the beginning. Using USB HDD.
  • Vorbis audio has very annoying and frequent intermittent pops and clicks. I have videos (MKV: x264, vorbis) that previously played fine, but now the audio gets the previously mentioned pops and clicks noises throughout the video - it gets worse the longer you play the video.
  • Playback of a video has problems with AC3 audio. With starting it has “electronic” noise “click”/“scratch”. Also after resuming or continuing playback after pause. Didn’t happen with version 1.02.21.
  • Open Network Share isn’t available for WD TV Live. Worked before version 1.03.49_V and 1.04.10_V.
  • Screen Saver does not function when a Video file is paused.
  • subtitle setting never stays ON and after few hours (randomly) it goes back to OFF (default).
  • Network-performance droped compared to former firmware versions --> result: stuttering playback of high bitrate videos on low bandwidth-networks (such as WLAN, DLAN)
  • Incorrect subtitle color palette for embedded sub/idx subtitles in mkv (external subtitle palettte is correct)
  • File manager is broken. I try delete from usb hdd folder with 3 files inside, first problem, no highlight of action icons. When first 2 files was deleted, indication hangs. Only back batton allow go out from it
  • [File Manager] In addition, when trying to move a file from one Hdd to another (USB1 to USB2) using Settings\File Management, the status indication also hangs on 100%, does not report the operation as successfully completed, and only the back button allows you to go out from it.
  • USB Keyboard controls are lagging; seems to wait until input is displayed (e.g. passwords) or current onscreen animation (e.g. moving from Video to Audio) finishes before accepting new input.
