Had the unit for a couple of weeks now and I’ve had enough. Upgraded from the wdtv hd unit which worked almost perfectly for 2 years. I wanted to take advantage of netflicks etc so took the plunge. It has been a nightmare from the start…
wired network , serviio media streaming. Firmware 1:12:14
random freezes at the start of playback.( on files that worked the day before) Orange progress circle stuck on top, and the remote is unresponsive. The only way to stop it is to pull out the power lead in the back( surely not a good idea.)
this now is a permanent problem, I am unable to play ANY files. You tube etc working fine
i tried a factory reset several times, which sometimes worked but now not at all.
tried rebooting the computer , serviio and the router all to no avail.
havent rolled back the firmware as it has been fine for about a week. Should I try this. (I had the same problem with every firmware since I got it)
in addition the unit doesn’t keep the a video setting each time I turn it on, every time I have to set the hdmi settings to auto etc as the screen is pink on startup. but I wonder if its a problem with the tv( lg pk250 60" plasma)
the previous wdtv worked on exactly the same set up , so I assume that it’s a problem with the unit not my network etc.
i can’t see any other option but to return it and go back to the excellent but limited wdtvhd.
handy suggestions gratefully received, but I find it astonishing that a product needs this level of research just to make it work. If its not ready, don’t release it…not everyone has the time and patience to sit reading pages and pages of forum discussions. And not everyone has the confidence or aptitude to implement advice given in them. This is not a consumer product , it is a project for like minded techno philes
