Well considering you guys never put out a tool to do this work and clean up the device, mine became nearly unusable with 4+ minute startup times and 2+ minute startup times per video.
So thank you for no longer supporting your device.
Reading this post, i thought i would test my Boot Time and and Video Playback start … so, my setup is
- WDTV Live Hub
- 3 Years Old
- Case never been opened / internal hdd never removed / never defragged
- Have moved / copied / deleted many, many GIGS over the years
- Running Firmware 2.07.17
- Media Library On
- Video Output Manually Set (Resolution,Color Space… No Auto HMDI settings used)
From complete Power Off Status … Boot Time = 1 min 45 seconds
Selecting a Movie / Video to play… Press “OK” = 2 second delay before playback begins
That’s basically how it’s been for 3 years … have never experienced 4 min boot times or having to wait 2 mins for video playback to start ?
and yeah, (as flhthemi said) i too, love my WD as well
