I have a DLNA server on my home network connected to a Samsung LED TV. All videos in my collection play perfectly and are very clear.
Today I purchased a WD TV Live Plus media player. It was fairly easy to set up, but I immediately noticed horizontal lines and stuttering with some of my videos. Many other videos play fine. The horizontal lines only appear with motion and are localized to the motion area.
All videos in my collection are encoded as .mkv/h.264/DTS and AC-3 Pass-thru. My network is wired gigabit. The TV connection is HDMI.
I tested several configurations in the media player, but cannot eliminate the distorted and/or stuttering video. I also tried two TVs and component video…both display the same behavior.
Could I have a bad player?
