I have a WD TV Live for over a month - love it except the DVD menu/chapter support.
A few days ago, I purchased a WD TV Live Plus (for 2nd TV set). The DVD menu/chapter works well for DVD ISO files. However, I noticed the following issues:
- I connect a My Book 320 GB Essential Edition external hard drive to the WD TV Live Plus. After I power off the TV Live Plus (using the remote control), the hard drive does not power off on its own (I wait for one hour). Even I push the green ring to power it off, it turns on automatically again. When I disconnect the USB cable from the TV Live Plus, the hard disk turns off in a few seconds. Even while the TV Live Plus is power off, if I reconnect the hard drive USB cable to the Live Plus, the hard drive will turn on. I don’t have the problem with my WD TV Live (the non-Plus version)
- I play a few files and stop them in the middle. After I power off WD TV Live Plus and power it on again (via remote control), it does not “remember” those played files and always starts the files from the very beginning. I don’t have the problem with my WD TV Live (the non-Plus version).
- Occasionally, my WD TV Live Plus does not play MKV files - asking me to check the manual for supported file formats. I found a workaround - play an ISO file and then go back to play MKV files, things are fine. But this is a very strange problem. I never experienced it with my WD TV Live (the non-Plus version).
I tried to “reset” the WD TV Live Plus, power cycle. problem 1 & 2 still exist. And problem 3 still happens occasionally. I don’t know it’s the firmware issue or I am having a “bad unit”.
Any suggestion and help would be greatly appreciated.
