Since recently I’m having issues with my WD TV Live Streaming Media Player. I think I have it since the last firmware update (that had been waiting for a while before I installed it so maybe I jumped more than 1 version).
I use (Windows) network shares.
I don’t use the media library.
During the night my homeserver (which has the network shares) automatically hibernates
Device Info: 1.12.14
I start my WD TV Live (comes out of standby), when going to Video or Files I’m immediately treated to a message saying: The last content source has been removed. Please select a new content source.
I then go again to the network folder (it finds the server, so network is ok) but it tells me: There is no media in the current folder.
Reboot the WD TV Live, so an actual device restart (which takes ages) and then I can just add the content source and it will not give me the error message that there is no media in the current folder, but just list the subfolders as it should.
It used to work that when I started the WD TV Live I could just click video and I could browse the folders directly, no error messages about the content source being removed or messages that there are no files in the folder. I guess there could have been a “feature change” so that the WD TV Live during the night (when it’s on standby) automatically detects that my homeserver goes into hibernation. However that doesn’t explain why when readding the content source it doesn’t want to list any files from it until I reboot the WD TV Live. I would still prefer if I didn’t have to readd the content source also though
Just to make sure: I only have the content source has been removed message after coming out of standby, I’m not getting disconnected during playback or anything (because I saw some posts of people who have this issue)
Is this a bug that will be fixed in the future ? Is there something I can do about it (other than not hibernating my homeserver, because I do that to save power).
Thank you already in advance for any help
