Hello community,

I am new and I am trying to learn and built my media center.

I am thinking about getting 2 WD TV Live Plus media players.

If anyone can help with answers or link it would be highly appreciated.

I would like to know if this can be built:

TV: 1080p TV (HDMI connection)

Media player 1: wired ethernet

[TV + Media player 1 are connected to a HDMI receiver]

TV2: 1080p TV (HDMI connection)

Media player 2: wireless (USB Ethernet)

NAS: All my DVD collection ripped into VOB files (Full movies) inside their corresponding video_ts folder

Ripper: DVDFab 6.2.1.8

Questions and doubts?

1.Can I access my movies from both Media Player?

2.Can I support Blu-ray rips?

3.Can I support DTS sound on TV scenario?

4.Can I support DTS-HD on TV scenario?

5.Can I support a movie title display such as YAMJ or XBM?

6.Can I navigate the DVD menus just as if I was playing the DVD disc on a DVD player?

7.Can I support subtitles?

8.Can I support 1080p on both scenarios?

9.Am I going to have problems because the VOBs are on a networked HDD?

I had been reading about popcorn hour and egrate, but I prefer to WD products since I own several WD HDD already.

I have been waiting to find the answers but every time I look I get more confused.

I am really looking forward to set up this at home any help would be appreciated.

Thanks to all for you help.

1 - Yes

2 - Yes but the wireless *may* have problems unless your blu-ray rips are encoded to a smaller format

3 - Yes

4 - No, DTS-HD is not supported

5 - ?

6 - Yes (but not blu-rays) and not *completely* as if you were on a player (for one thing you don’t have all the right buttons)

7 - Yes, if they are in the right format

8 - Yes but once again, you may have problems wirelessly with some files

9 - No

Mike,

1 - Thanks

2 - What about if it is wireless n not g

3 - Thanks

4 - Is it going to be supported? Do you know?

5 - Basically what I meant was having something like this

6 - Sorry I meant normal controls, Thanks I understand the missing buttons.

7 - which is?

8 - Same as 2

9 - Thanks

2 - I was not able to do it with N either.  It’s not a limitation of your network so much as the Live (as I understand it, it’s the nature of the wireless transfer protocol on the Live, or something to that effect).

4 - DTS-HD will not be supported (AFAIK it’s true of ALL such devices – the licensing is something that DTS does not want to do to keep blu-ray players the only way to do it).

5 - No

7 - Srt for sure – there is a complete list of supported formats on this site (shouldn’t be hard to find)

8 - Same as 2

2 - Sad, but good to know, hopefully they will fix this later…

4 - SAD, SAD, SAD

5 - sad too…

7 - Thanks

8 - Same as 2

Anybody else with feedback?

Thanks.
