Hi all, just updated my unit with the latest firmware (v2.02.32 08/2014) and am experiencing issues.
- It freezes and needs to be unplugged & replugged.
- I repeatedly get “Low memory” issues and need to reboot, and
- it is unresponsive to remote control. Sometimes it buffers the buttons pressed and eventually goes through the sequence of buttons pressed in frustration over the previous 10-15 seconds.
Anyone else having this before I go through an attempted downgrade
Thanks in advance!
I have had all of these, but suspect they are all caused by the same thing: memory leaks. Specifically the YouTube app leaks memory like a sieve! I suspect the iPlayer app also leaks, but difficult to tell when I tend to flip from one to the other.
It is always worth doing a hard restart (long power key press so u get that irritating “double” screen display at start-up next time) after using YouTube with current firmware before attempting further box use anywhere - even playing vids can take an age to start and I rarely ever get the low memory warning.
A couple of times the box has got so unresponsive I considered it dead and reluctantly pulled the power cable out, but try and avoid if u can of course because it can corrupt your settings.
ps: I am pretty sure low memory is not causing the MP4 videos not playing issue.
So WD, still waiting a fix…
