I have a WD Live + that I picked up a couple weeks ago. Everything works fine – the player occasionally hangs and I need to unplug and plug it back in. Overall pretty happy with it.
When I rip DVDs with the same settings with DVDfab, the player seems inconsistent in displaying 4:3 and 16:9 ratio videos. Some of my 4:3 videos fill up all of the screen (720p 16:9 tv) while other 4:3 movies display correctly with bars on the sides. I haven’t gotten a widescreen movie to fill the screen yet- bars on top and bottom. Apologies if I’m not explaining this well! The DVD menu will fill up the screen but then the actual video will not fill up the screen.
I’ve played with settings in the WD player with no changes-- any advice? Maybe burning the iso files to my external hd instead of the vob files? Or re-encode the video files altogether with handbrake?
Any advice is appreciated!
