Purchased a 46" LCD on Black Friday + a WDTV Live player and am having a couple issues:
The audio pops/crackles noticeably and often. SEEMS to only be while playing 720p/1080p x264 MKV files, but I haven’t confirmed this 100%…it appears I can play xvid/avi without audio/video problems. Brand new HDMI cable, switching cable doesn’t resolve. I’ve tried both Stereo and HDMI Passthrough audio settings. I suspect the dynamic range of the audio from the files is simply too much for the junky speakers of the TV?
Aforementioned 720p/1080p MKV files stutter when streaming over SMP/network share but are fine playing off a USB HDD. Currently only have a newer Linksys G router; will upgrading to N/Dual Band help?
