I have come across a peculiar problem. I have the wdtv-live-hub running fmware ver.2.3.024 and connected to a LCD TV using HDMI.
Now the issue is observed when i do the following:
Do not power on the TV (or change to any other AV mode or watch some other cable channel till the live-hub boots up completely - as observed after the led stops blinking on the front of the hub) and power on the Live-HUB.
Let it bootup completely (as mentioned above) and then switch the TV to the HDMI mode/channel to access the Hub
Next go to videos and start playing any video (say, avi or mkv, etc). After sometime, and this is happening 7 times out of 10 attempts, i have observed that i cannot use any of the controls on the remote (such as trying to stop the video or fast forward or something and everything which can be done usually :-)…but now i cannot.
I cannot even use the power down button on the front of the hub to shutdown, it does not respond. The whole video keeps on running correctly but i cannot stop it.
5 The only option left is to cut the power to the live-hub
- Next i make sure the TV is on and it is set to the HDMI mode as connected to the Live-HUB. I switch on the Hub and then after it has booted completely, i go to setup and then use the device reboot menu option to reboot again while the TV is still on and in the correct HDMI mode/channel (the thing you do similar to switching between TV/AV i guess)
7 Now when i run any video it plays as usual and now i can also control the settings and also stop/fast-forward it as i want to.
So is this issue a one off problem, or is it with 2.3. Can i be sure that this wont happen with 2.7
thanks & regards
