Opinion about this player (3rd gen) vs. the older live or live plus (2nd gen)


I currently own the older live player (2nd gen) and am looking to see if this 3rd gen live streaming one is worth upgrading to.  What I encounter sometimes with my older one is that, streaming a large file (10+ gigs) from my network drive causes the player to hang and I would have to reset it to factory and re-enter all the wi-fi info all over again.  Also, sometimes it takes up to 3 tries (unplug and replug) to recognize a usb drive.

would like to hear anyone’s opinion if you had own the previous one and now this one.

thank you in advance!

Have you tried updating the firmware to the latest version for the one that you have.
