No audio with playback of Mpeg 2 Files

If this has been posted before, my apologies.

I just got the WD Live first week of December, '09.  I just hooked it up directly last night. with my WD Passport.

It played the first video file fine…

But, then the second file did not play, and the unit said, “Can’t play Vorbis”.  What???

I had to use AVI Recomp on that file, and then it played.  But it played fine before on my cheapo Philips 5990 as well?

On TV, I use a Aver Media M780 tuner card, which records HD on Mpeg 2.  The files are excellent on playback on the

computer.  But when I load them up on the WD Live, no audio is on it.

Help!  These are the reasons I bought this unit.  Is the no audio playback been corrected on the lastest firmware? I can’t believe that.  Also, I am wary of downloading that firmware since I’ve been reading about a lot of “bricked” players from it.

Any help out there?

Have you search the rest of the forum about this? I’d give it a try. Or, have you tried contacting WD’s Technical Support about this? I would consider giving them a call or sending them an email.
