I bought the WDTV Live 4 and a half months ago so that I could play DVR-MS movies over the network from recordings from WIndows 7 media Centre and they were working.
Over the last week or so, things changed.
If I press PLAY on a movie (any movie at all), the screen blacks out.
if I press FAST FORWARD, I can see the movie (any movie at all) fast forward so I press play and it stops on a single frame.
if I press PLAY and then STOP and then PLAY again, the movie (any movie at all) starts to play and then freezes again.
if I play the movie off a LOCAL USB drive, the movie (any movie at all) play perfectly.
I have the WDTV Live connected through my router and an old network switch that **may** be the problem, don’t know.
I have tried older firmware and newer frmware, same issue.
Has anyone else had this problem?
(I do not have another network switch to try, nor cable long enough to go the the WDTV Live directo to test other ideas).
