…***In the following SENSE***…
Obviously, one cannot expect WDTV-LMP to play ‘unsupported’ file types BUT:
If the WDTV encounters an ‘Unsupported File Type’ and???, it seems that it will sometime ‘recognize’ that fact, displays the advisory message, and allow one to ‘abort’ and continue.
BUT: I seem to often encounter situations where if I try to play an unsupported??? file type, it just ‘hangs’ and the ‘progress clock’ going on ‘forever’…
AND! The worst part, the ONLY way I seem to be able to get the WDTV to work/play ANYTHING after that is to UNPLUG IT from the power supply, plug it back and and (ie.) do a cold-reboot.
A warm reboot (ie. Remote off/on) will NOT fix the problem.
This seems to happen quite frequently in my case, where I download a wide variety video formats off the Internet, and is quite annoying.
