I was hoping that the WD TV play had the Netflix stream info overlay like this:
The PS3 and a Sony BDP that I own can both display this and I know that there are other non-Sony devices which display it. I’ve read that you can get this on the WD TV Live by pressing the Options key while playing a title. If I press the Options key while anywhere in the Netflix player it exits and returns to the page I entered from. (EDIT: It turns out that I wasn’t pressing the Options key, but Home :flushed:. Pressing the Options key does nothing.
This feature was one of the things I most looked forward to from the WD TV Play. I really like the video quality indicator (Low/SD, Medium/SD, High/SD, Medium/HD, High/HD X-High/HD); it lets me know whether the title has low quality video or the adaptive bit rate player is just stuck on a low quality video encode. The realtime played/total time counter is useful as well.
Is this function available? If not, I may return the WD TV Play and buy a refurbished WD TV Live at a similar price.
