WDTV Live hub WDBACA0010BBK
FW: 3.12.13 (7/2013)
1.) There have been no FW updates post 2013 for this product.
As the support tells me this product has been disconitnued hence no updates.
Why sell the product still? What about the FW updates for people who have bought this product in the last 2 years and is still in warranty?
I ask this as the WD support has no answer.
2.) Live hub has no support for Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD MA
It seems WDTV Live supports it.
Even the KB suggests this (Any file which contains a Dolby TrueHD audio stream will not produce output for those Dolby True HD streams unless the device is set to HDMI or Optical Pass-Through and is connected to a receiver.)
So does it support TrueHD or not is confusing.
If tehre is a licensing issue, then how is it that the WDTV Live supports TrueHD and DTS-MA, but the Live hub does not?
Is there any third party FW for the Live hub that can support those 2 codecs.
3.) Seeing as my new receiver has the HDMI v1.4 with ARC spec, plus it supports
Dolby Digital 5.1
Dolby Digital Plus
Dolby True HD
DTS Digital Surround
DTS-HD Master Audio
I am in a bit of a fix.
The receiver has just one HDMI port and so does the WDTV Live hub.
So how do I configure the whole thing for WDTV - HTS receiver - TV?
If I am to connect the HDMI from the WD to the receiver, I’ll have audio but no video to my TV set.
Sorry about making this my first post here.
I hope someone can help me out.
