Going from Firmware .00(stock) to .17 - BIG Question


#1

Question for those of you that have upgraded to the newly released firmware .17 - directly from the original firmware .00 (skipping .11)

I had downgraded to .00 after .11 had given me terrible audio sync issues. Those of you who had the same problem know what I am talking about - FW .11 had made this thing basically unuseable do to the audio sync issues with .mp4’s.

If I go to .17 - does that include changes that were made in .11?

In other words, will .17 bring back those dreaded audio sync issues?

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Not that I am intending to, but out of interest, how did you downgrade your WD live?  I don’t recall seeing an option to do so.

it’s discussed in this thread: http://community.wdc.com/t5/WD-TV-Live/Download-old-firmware/m-p/1080#M596

basically you download the old FW, change the version # in the .ver file to a higher number than what was installed.

really works quite qell . . .
