I’ve seen this referred to often enough in my searches. It’s really starting to ■■■■ me off though.
I DESPISE the Media Library **bleep**. Slow and unseemly for my setup where content and locations are changed often enough for it to be just annoying as **bleep** to have to refresh/update the media library so often.
Regardless of this. The WD TV Live Hub just flat out REFUSES to update/refresh the content of a Windows 7 Ultimate X64 Share…
So far as to be still showing content that was deleted or burnt to blu-ray for backup days after the last firmware update…
How **bleep** hard would it be to add a simple ‘refresh’ task to the option menu? Seriously. With all the personalisation options for buttons A through to D and 1 through to 9, surely there is enough scope for just ONE of these to force a REFRESH of the content of the current location.
For those who suggest to turn the media library on and off, been there. Done that. Does SFA.
For those who say to change the workgroup to something else, then back again. Does SFA.
For those who say to clear the network login and share info. I’ve done that over and over again. Does SFA.
For those who say to Restart the Device, either by the system setup option or by holding the power button on the remote OR device until it completely shuts down… Been there… Done that… DOES SFA…
Noticing a trend here?
I’ve tried pretty much everything I’ve been able to google or think of to no avail.
For a media player that I’ve had so much praise for. It seems to really be struggling with the last few firmware updates. It’s losing functionality and usefulness just so it can be equipped with pissy little mindless games??
Come on now. It’s a media player. Not a Game centre.
I buy a media player to play media. If I want to play games… I have a Console for that. If I want to go online and check facebook and twitter… I have a computer for that…
Just fix the **bleep** thing so it actually works without causing me ENDLESS frustration…
If you can’t at least get that right… Release a revised chassis version with at least one e-Sata port on the back of it so I can give it more ‘local’ storage… The only **bleep** storage it manages to refresh competently, without lumbering me with some archaic USB device that takes a million years to copy to-from via my COMPLETELY Gigabit equipped wired network.
See… I’ve sent emails. Not even the courtesy of a **bleep** reply.
I’m pissed off enough now that I’ve wasted my time signing up, opening an email address up for whatever BS messages I’m likely to incur from the mere act of signing up.
I don’t need some gimmicky media library nagging at me to be refreshed or updated if I move a shared drive from one PC to another. Waiting for just ONE 1TB drive full of media to refresh/update is bad enough. Let alone half a dozen of the things…
If all these stupid little apps and ‘services’ can be added… surely ‘Refresh’ can’t be that big of a **bleep** ask.
/RANT (for now)
