Man - getting really tired of bad upgrades on this box. I had previously rolled back to 2.05.08 after having upgraded to 2.06.10 because the library would not compile on 2.06.10. After rolling back, library was fine and life was good…until the ISO bug popped up a week ago. Not fun when you have a toddler screaming for his Thomas The Train collection. So, I decided, since several new releases had passed since 2.06.10, that I would go ahead and upgrade to 2.08.13 - figuring that WDC would finally have solved most of the problems without creating new ones.
Sadly…since upgrading to 2.08.13, I can once again, no longer get the hub to complete the library compiling. Exact same issues as in previous post on 2.06.10 ( http://community.wdc.com/t5/WD-TV-Live-Hub-Firmware/Unable-to-get-movie-information-on-2-06-10/m-p/222048#M1652) I’ve tried all the usual fixes, resets, limiting library size, eliminating file types - no joy. Looks like I’ll need to roll back to another safe load yet again (any thoughts on which one??) unless you all have any new ideas to try.
FWIW - I have my hub collecting the library from files stored on a Synology DS211+ NAS, with 2 2TB Segates in Raid 1 config. NAS & Hub are hardwired via GigE ports on a NetGear WNDR3700 (N600). I have a share setup on the NAS the only the hub uses and is limited to four folders (Music, Movies, Photo, Video). Even if I limit the size of the library by reducing the share to just the Movies folder (where the DVD files (mostly VOB and ISO) the library will not complete the compile. For some reason, anything after 2.05.08 and the library will not compile. Bizarre and annoying - especially since it worked very very well right up to the point of the ISO glitch. All files play perfectly fine via Windows Meida Center (including ISO files using Virtual Clone Drive for WMC).
Any thoughts? Roll back to 2.05.08, reboot on the ISO glitch and call it good? Man, one has to think WDC can provide better service than this. Honestly - my Linksys DMS-2100 was a MUCH MUCH better box - too bad it has limited file support and Cisco eventually killed support for it. Maybe it’s time to start thinking of a new piece of hardware…
