I recently purchased a Live Plus box and started poking around on the net looking for some computer software to go with it. Does the factory firmware really not have a useful web interface? Is telnet/ssh not allowed? It doesn’t respond to ping? These seem to be very simplistic and standard items that, if the hardware is capable, should definately be included. Can anyone verify that these really aren’t included in the standard firmware and I’m just not somehow missing them?
I’m a bit leary of installing some of the homebrew firmware packages because this thing is still all bright and shiney new out of the box and does what it does (play media off my network shares) very well. I also haven’t seen any instructions on how to back up the current firmware and replace it if the homebrew somehow bricks it.
