I had my WDTV unplugged for a while and after plugging it back in, the HDMI output doesn’t work. My TV does not recognize the device at all. The TV recognizes all my other HDMI devices with no problem. I plugged the WDTV in with the yellow component cable and it worked. I then tried to change the video output to HDMI. The screen would go black, and then it would come back on and the video would switch to Composite.
For a brief instant I was able to get the HDMI to work. I had to unplugg the WDTV for about 15 minutes. When I plugged it back in the HDMI worked. But shortly thereafter, the screen went black and would not come back on.
I’m running the latest firmware from November. This is a first gen WDTV.
If anyone has any good suggestions, I’d appreciate the help. But I think this thing may need to go back to WD.
