my WDTV LIve works great as a stand alone product, but connecting it to the network, ether via ethernet or wireless, results in a “media player” that can’t play media! After a couple of short videos on you tube, or a TV episode from my media player I can still browse the listings on my media server, or Youtube or even my local USB hard drive, but NO media will play, so streaming audio, or video, even from the local USB drive.
I have had my first WDTV replaced for this issue, the replacement did the same thing.
I have tried all available firmware, same thing. (even home-brew, I’mm desperate!)
Altho I don’t use Windows, I have made sure that any device on my network that can have a workgroup setting is using “WORKGROUP”, same thing.
WHAT IS GOING ON!
I don’t have the receipt from best buy any more, wonder if I can still return it.
