Existing firmware on the WD TV Live


#1

Hi there,

I need some advice. I have just purchased a WD TV Live unit which will be delivered tomorow. I need to know if I should update the firmware when I am setting it up?

There seems to be a lot of discussion regarding buggy firmware upgrades.

Can someone advise me please? I am in NZ.

Thanks,

Isaacs

Each firmware update has been an improvement. There was one bad firmware update that was up for a few hours than quickly yanked down when it caused problems with peoples units, but you can no longer get this update, and the current ones add a lot to the device. In a nutshell - Yes you want to update.

During my 25 years of computer experice I’ve changed my optinion totally. 

Basically, if  you know what you want to do with the box. Just try it with 1.01.01, maybe everything works incl. network-shares etc.

Why updating?

If not, read release notes of 1.01.24 and decide.
