I got tired of having to wait for the ‘Connecting Networks…’ to finish each time I turned on my WDTV Media Player. So I took out my network info. Then it would not recognize the MP4 files that normally played. I put back my network info and it worked again. So my question is, is there any way to stop it from going through the ‘Connecting Networks’ process? Why do I need a network connection? And, if I took the WDTV to another location, and the network is different or no network, will my WDTV still work or only work with connecting to my network at home?
I did take it to a friends house and, with my network info removed, it would not recognize the MP4 files on my thumbdrive I wanted to play. I don’t need the network because I always plug in my thumbdrive for the MP4 files to play.
