I have a bit of a problem with my new WD TV Live (running the latest .17 firmware currently available). When viewing photos from my Synology media server, on occasion the resolution of the photos changes dramatically to the point of being unwatchable. This affects also the preview thumbnails (ie the thumbnails also look lower res). Video works fine throughout.
The only solution I have found so far is to turn off/on the WD TV box.
My HD TV (connected via HDMI @ 1080p) is a Philips pfl8404 which is also DLNA capable and I have no problems watching the same (jpeg) photos on it directly, but I do prefer the WD’s UI. Given the unpredictability of the viewing I’m currently inclined to return the WD TV box back.
I have seen some posts about the WD TV incorrectly using the photo index database ( http://community.wdc.com/t5/WD-TV-Live-General/photo-thumbnail-problem-with-mediatomb/td-p/2957;jsessionid=32545C382A0377E631D3D3A4E285A353) , but no solution and not being sure that this is actually my problem too I’m starting a new thread.
