I got the new WDTV Live yesterday from Bestbuy. Spotify was not on the original firmware but is on 1.03.10. I updated last night and got it working with premium subscription. However, Spotify is still quite buggy for me. If you press to scroll once to the left or to the right, the app scrolls like 3-4 times by itself.
I also often lose internet connection using the WDTV built-in single band wireless N which I never experienced with my previous WDTV Live with a USB dual band wireless adapter on 5ghz. I don’t know if it’s a problem with my 2.4ghz band but my phone that is connected to that band has stable connection.
I hope there’s a way to fix that and maybe also have an option to turn off the built-in wireless and have support for dual band usb adapters. Anyway, that’s just my first impression. A little buggy but understandable since this is still new. I just hope the community can help vastly improve this device like what they did with the last few versions of WDTV. This is my 3rd WDTV and I’m still loving it.
By the way, can we come up with a unique name for this version of WDTV Live so that it can be easier to search on the web? This confuses with the previous version of WDTV Live. Thanks!
