RichUK, Unfortunately you´re right ! Firmware update fix was the main bug (and the main cause of RMAs and rework), but there´s a lot more to do !
* Youtube login still doesn´t work ! This is a crappy one, as was the base functionality since firmware 1.00.00 and product conception !!! It can also cause product returns, due to lack of functionality and reboot
* Subtilte Color and Position was also not included as functionalities, as all other competitors´ product has.
At least just Yellow Subtiltes!!! This makes much more sense than White ones ! Snow and glare are way more common than Watchmen´s opening !
Watch out WD TV LIVE Product Managers ! Thin ice here !
Pragmatic Suggestion: Create a Thread with Known Bugs, and a forum user vote to prioritize these fixes ! At least we would know what is being fixed and expected date of release.
I have a Media Center Blog, and presenting articles with lots of comparisons against MC competitors. WD TV LIVE has won lots of categories, but these minimum spenditures´ functionalities are making you lose in annoying issues to the final user.
You have a creative interface, good design, nick interaction with the newbie user, good price/performance, but not having 10 min/30 seconds skip through navigation remote, Subtitle Colors and Positions changes which are so basic and expected is killing you.
Cheers and keep it up, just keep it up !
