I upgraded to the latest firmware release probably 2 weeks ago, hadn’t had any issues until last night.
Symptom: Streaming audio via Live 365 through my Denon receiver was much lower in volume & sounded a bit muffled. Also tried playing some audio files I had loaded & played previously without issue, to now find the same poor audio sound/volume via the audio RCA-out ports.
Listening to either sources through my Sony TV via HDMI cable does not yield the same results (sounds fine). I left the receiver & WD hub powered down overnight, tried some streaming audio again & got some really loud popping noises coming out of the RCA audio on the WD hub- so loud I thought it would blow my speakers. I then changed the input ports on my receiver to VCR, & the noise went away, volume back to normal levels, & not muffled. Very strange. I was thinking it could be the cable I’m using, but I flexed it from end to end while audio was running & couldn’t reproduce the noises.
I’m suspicious that the RCA components are failing in the WD hub, but cannot be sure. Has anyone else had similar audio issues when using the audio RCA outs to their receivers? Firmware issue?
