Every day I seem to fight longer and longer with my WDBHG70000NBK-HESN in order to get it to work. As soon as I turn it on, it tells me that the previously selected content source has been disconnected and would I like to find a new one.
So I go through the motion and search for my network again, but it never finds it. It sets on the spinning arrow screen and I just wait. After about 5 minutes, I have to unplug everything and then start reconnecting all the wires again. Sometimes this works, most of the time it will not.
I waste about 1.5 hours every single night just trying to get this piece of junk to work.
I cannot believe that Western Digital would put out such a faulty product. Does anybody else have this problem? I have applied every update available since I bought this box less than a month ago. I am at a total loss and would like to know if anyone actually has one of these machines that works.
I have tried two different routers, wireless and wired, neither seems to make a difference. And when it does actually work, the MP4 and MKV files will hang throughout playback. AVI’s seem to work ok as long as I don’t watch too many in a row.
