I know similar questions have been asked, and I have searched, but I just can’t figure it out.
I have 5 WDTV Live+ and one WDTV Live SMP throughout my home connected to my network (hardwired CAT6 gigabit) and they all play movies etc. fairly well (well DTS HD Master is a BIG issue), but I have tried everything I can think of to get the thumbnails and metadata to show up and it’s not working. All movies, music, etc are stored on one server and set as network shares.
At one point, a few pieces of metadata and cover art must have been downloaded (only 5 or 6 movies out of hundreds of movies) and nothing else ever downloaded.
The WDTV Live SMP sees and plays the movies fine (occasionally has issues with really big (30-40GB) BluRays), but never seems to download the metadata, etc.
I’m not looking to run any custom firmware, unless necessary, and I would like to keep it as simple as possible.
Am I missing something? Is there a way I can force it to start downloading the data?
