I have the WD TV Live used for a while with a USB harddisk and USB stick directly connected to the device without any problems. I’ve always had poor video with streaming services like Youtube but always thought it was a problem with the Youtube app on the WD. However, I have now connected (wired) the WD via the LAN to a Synology DS212j and have the same problems. I use a Sitecom 300n router but with a Netgear router I have the same problem.
The first seconds are okay, but then you see a lot of compression artifacts. After a while this repeats, so good quality.
Is this a known problem and if so, any tips to improve the video quality.
