I’ve been using the WD Live for a few days now. It auto-detected my HDMI settings without a problem (manually set them later on according to the TV’s handbook just in case), and it can playback anything I throw at it (via a 2TB MyBook).
My problem is that during playback, after a seemingly random amount of time, the TV turns off with a “no signal” message. After a few (2-10) minutes, it turns back on, and the movie has progressed the amount of time it was off (as if the live never understood something was wrong and kept on playing).
This can occur multiple times during a movie. The WD Live is on the latest firmware it could find via the internet. The TV is an LG (42LG5000).
