I bought a WD live hub as Ads seemed very promising in terms of features and GUI. I use this player connected with my TV and Hi-fi system. What i really hoped was to navigate easily my Flac library (all file tagged) of around 70Gb. I transferred my files and waited media library to come up. The real issue is:
- Navigation is extremely slow with the standard sorting option (covers interface / “all” option selected )
- It takes even 3-4 minutes to navigate across menus and literally freezes if I start playing my Flac files.
- A very annoying bug is that moving to previous page of the library (starting from the first page) the WD freezes and restarts! VERY BAD! There is no way to use standard displaying of albums and avoid this bug. the only way to have more speed and avoid this is to move at “folder” view with no previews ulness for the selected folder/album
- I’m relly disappointed mostly because this is happening with an updated firmware
As a customer I WOULD NOT RECCOMEND this product because it’s definitely slow and full of bugs. I believe as a professional managment consultant that a company should not rely on communities to solve pre-release bugs! You should spend YOUR resources for new product development in order to sell a product wich is almost bug-free and really does what is advertised. Many companies are using the power of online communities like this not to IMPROVE but to SOLVE and i find this really bad.
HOPE you’ll fix these bugs and release As soon as possible a stable, smooth, enjoyable firmware! I’ll never spent a single minute of my spare time looking for this hardware to run properly! PLEASE SOLVE BUGS!
