So I just got my WD TV LIVE Streaming 2011 new model today.
I have a 15TB unRAID NAS that I store all my stuff in, I used my old WD TV LIVE PLUS to watch videos from it. Works great. I only use folder.jpg in each movie folder to show thumbnail art.
Got the WD TV Live since I wanted the new UI and possible speed improvements.
I like how it saves the last viewed network share, so when I select Videos from the main menu, it shows my NAS without me having to choose Server, select my server, then connect etc like the old WDTVLIVE+.
One thing that irks me is the VIEWs.
The old WD TV Live PLUS looks like this:
Now the new WD TV Live Streaming looks like this:
Ughhh… soo ugly.
Hopefully WD fixes the metadata ability for items stored on a nas/network share, then the white boxes will be filled with information and I won’t be as grumpy.
Buuuuttt… they should add a new view for JUST the FOLDER coverart!
