I have a seagate external drive hooked up directly to the WD TV Live, and I access a WD MyBook network drive wirelessly for other files.
Sometimes, during playback (network and direct connect) the video will abruptly stop and I will get a screen saying that I shouldn’t disconnect the drive while it’s in use. Of course, I didn’t disconnect it.
At times, the directly connected drive will have an error saying that the WD can’t discover or store the media list on this drive (Seagate free agent go flex drive).
Also, randomly the wireless is having problems being discovered. Sometimes I have to reboot the unit so that it will recognize the network drive. It will show up, but when I select it, it disappears and then does the arrow spin ‘please wait’ thing forever.
The last issure I’m having is with the video resolution. The WD keeps resetting to 720P when I want 1080. The TV absolutely supports the highest resolution, but still, this resets at least 3 or 4 times a week.
All of my equipment is run from battery backup units with brownout filters, so nothing is losing power in the system.
I still think this is an excellent system, and it gets a ton of use, but it would be great if some of these things got cleaned up.
