Just so all you people out there, and potential customers…
WD confirmed in serveral emails that WDLiveTV generation 3 units, will not play MOV files recorded in .264 with PCM audio (as recorded by most Canon cameras) as the bandwidth of the WDLiveTV unit is exceeded.
THe video requires a solid 49 mbps data rate, and you cannot get 49mbps wireless or tethered.
Even though my access point is connected at 200+ mbps, it does not do it. Even tethered, as the Ethernet is not giga bit.
My WDLiveHUB unit will play the MOV files! Thank GOD.
So, if you have a lot of movies by your camera, watch, as this device will not play them. Don’t; even think about recording video in 720 either, as it will not play. 640by 480 at 30fps was the only, only video next to play (320 worked too, but who uses that).
So, would have been nice if the Ethernet port was gigabit, and I might have keep the unit.
Poor data rate even though it 200mbps connection rate.
What a piece of **bleep** hardware.
