My WDTV Live Hub is connected to my local DHCP server and internal network of computers and NAS. Also connected via the router, is an internet modem.
The latest 3.17 firmware seems to require a permanent internet connection - I prefer to turn the internet off when not in use, however the Media Player will, after about ten minutes or so, reset and stall at the “Loading” logo.
The only fix is to reconnet the internet modem, or pull the ethernet plug out of the router/server and power cycle the player.
I have checked the auto-update option to off - same problem.
I haven’t seen a similar complaint here so maybe it is my settings.
The DHCP server does provide a connection and the player claims that there is an internet connection when clearly there isn’t (modem off).
Any help or comment would be appreciated.
