Bought WD TV Live a couple of days ago. All I wanted was to be able to watch my media files on my TV straight from my NAS without having to first transfer them to an external hard drive with a usb connection to the TV.
First impression - great! It plays most files, the gui is slow but hey.
Then I realised the frustrating things:
When I power it off (standby?) after a short while it never comes back on again from pressing the remote unless I unlug the power chord and re-plug it. Seems a lot of people have this problem .
Once I do that and it comes back on, it has to complie the media library again! That’s after a few cycles of turning itself on and off and saying the previous media source has been removed, select another. I then turn it off at the remote, then on again (while I still can) and it boots back to my media library, but the spinning arrow still comes on every few seconds.
The tablet / phone app is only connected to the device on a wing and a prayer.
Before I get carried away with a much longer list, I’d just like to ask:
Does everyone have to put up with this?
Is the device not supposed to be powered off? ever??
Would TVersity make the operation slicker?
Or should I just forget about the TV live and stream from my Xbox using TVersity?
