Hello, ( UK User )
I got my WD TV Live today. I’m using a netgear W614v9 router ( 54G speed router ) along with a wireless dongle that is not on the list. See the link below - and was detected immediately by the WD box. I list it because it seems quite cheap compared to the officially listed ones. £12.38 inc postage from Amazon UK.
It actually doesn’t look like the photo - it’s bigger and squarer. The box and description printed on the dongle described it as: MicroNext MN-WD548J 802.11n Wireless USB Adapter.
As far as streaming with it from a windows XP shared folder goes, well 720p was jerking due to bad throughput. I think this could be because it was so far away from the router and the signal strength was low. DVDs and DivX are fine as is YouTube. I’ve used it on firmware 1.01.11 ( original ) and 1.01.11_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.3.1 also.
Since this is a Wireless N dongle, I may upgrade the router to see if it makes a difference. ( I don’t expect 1080 to work over wireless though)
