I have a new WD Live Plus with the 1.03.49 firmware. The audio is hooked up to my receiver with an optical cable, and the audio settings are set to Digital without HDMI audio.
The audio works fine while playing mkv files over a network share (mp3 and ac3 audio), and it works fine with youtube.
But when I try to use Netflix, I get no audio. I’ve tried doing the factory reset from the menu and the paperclip reset, but it didn’t help. I’ve tried removing the power, and powering it back up. I’ve tried reloading firmware. It doesn’t help.
I’ve tried all the other audio settings as well: Stereo and Digital. It didn’t help. I tried hooking up the analog AV cables and setting it to Stereo. Didn’t help.
By chance, I’ve gotten the audio to work on 2 separate occasions, once when I first set it up with the analog AV cables, and a second time with the optical cable. After turning it off and on, no more audio for Netflix, though.
I’ve deregistered and reregistered Netflix on the device over and over and over again, but it doesn’t help.
Any idea what else I can try?
