New Release - Firmware Version 1.12.14 for WD TV Live Streaming Media Player (10/29/12)

SMP Adds TV Tuner, Boxee TV announced Today!!!

Outstanding…

Thanks

I have that setting enabled but I still get the stutter every 40 secs. 95% of my collection plays fine its just the odd Chinese and British movie that is set at a fixed 24.00fps that seems to have the problem. Most if not all US titles are 23.976 so play perfectly.

I updated from 1.10.13

The loading time for a Video is longer than in 1.10. In past i could skip a video and play the next one even if i saw the first picture from the video. Now it takes few seconds for caching the video and the wd accepts new remote commands.

Also the loading image stays a bit on screen even if the video started.

I switch back to 1.10 couse the performance is much better.

Reverted back to 1.10.13 for the same reasons. The spinning-logo being displayed over the first couple of seconds of the video is a no-go. Why was that changed at all (back in 1.11 already)?

These issues are still present in 1.12.14 FW:

In video browser list (2 columns view), we can’t navigate from 1rst line (of any column), to the previous video.

Remove the empty space line, between subtitle lines.

Please follow the links and vote (give kudos) to these issues, so they get fixed.

Probably some changes in buffering.

Can you upload a 3 min clip of this to Mediafire or something?

Hope this helps Techflaws

I have same problem on new firmware 1.12.14 . It was my big mistake. My device worked flawlessly before update. Also, the feature to skip the movie to a specified time no longer work. can you tell me how to revert to previous firmware version?

Thanks

Me either.  Hey, has anyone experienced anything funny with Hulu Plus?  Problems with shows playing?

The only thing that I’ve notice is the first few minutes when a show starts the video resolution is off.  There’s a lot of distortion at the beginning, then the resolution seems to go back to normal.

Search for “rollback firmware” in the searchfield above.

Anyone else having issues with the blue “home” button?

Since the latest update the SMP has seemed to have lost the ability to exit a process ,(a service, movie, device settings, etc…), and jump straight to the main home screen. To get back to the home screen you have to continually use the back button.

Has anybody had problems copying files over their home wireless network using Windows Explorer to a HD attached to the WDTV.

Im no longer able to do this. Not sure if its a new network problem, a windows 8 problem or a firmware issue.

When I try and copy a large file over the network it transfers for about 30 seconds then dies and kicks me out of my wireless connection.

Never happened before the last day or so.

So I am having a problem witht he new firmware,  It will play stuff fine for a few episodes movies, then it will just hang when i try to play something else and then it will tell me i am having a fatal exception and the box needs to reset.  This will happen a few times and then it will play fine again for a little while and the circle starts over 

I don’t see anywhere that the issue with duplicates being displayed after a video file is deleted from the WD UI has been addressed in this update? Is this an actual WD issue, or is it happening to me alone? I’m connected to my NAS as video media library via SAMBA over LAN (unRaid box). This happens only when I delete from the WD menu. It does not actually create duplicates on the NAS, it only displays as such in the WD > Videos menus.

Couldn’t reproduce it on CRT nor flat TV, no stutter at all. Gonna try another flat TV tomorrow.

Did you try it at 24hz on the TV? If I have it at 60hz the film runs fine.

Out of interest, I have also downloaded your movie clip and played the file. I have no stuttering at 1080p 50 / 60 or 24Hz.

I don’t know if its because I am in the UK or its my TV (LG full HD) or something else.

Heya,

Upgraded yesterday, but found that I could no longer connect to my OSX NFS Shares…

When I tried to select the Network share on the WD Live Streming, only ‘windows shares’ option showed up, not Lnux/NFS shares…

I then downgraded, back to 1.10.33, and the NFS shares worked again.

My OSX is @ version 10.7.5 (Snow Leopard) with all latest patches.

Starting with firmware 1.11.14 Linux shares is turned off by default. You can turn it on in Setup.

Hi Rich

I am in the UK also but see the stutter/double frame every 40 seconds. I wonder if it’s to do with my TV then and how it processes 24.00fps material? It’s not that bigger deal really as most of my collection is 23.976fps. It would be just nice to be able to play the few 24fps titles I have smoothly.

Someone has so kindly uploaded these which show the problem really well  Motionbars

Try both the 1080p23.976 and 1080p24.000 and see if you can see the stutter
