Sony Recorder Video_TS not playing on Hub.......AGAIN!

Unbelievable!  I’m not sure about other iso or Video_TS playback, but the problem that was described in the following thread:   http://community.wdc.com/t5/WD-TV-Live-Hub-General/Sony-Recorder-DVD-R-ISO-s-not-playing-SOLUTION-YET/td-p/93820  , which was fixed by a firmware update in mid 2011 (not sure which one), has now mysteriously reappeared with the current firmware 3.00.28.  I was too stupid and gullible to adhere to my own rule of “if it aint broke don’t fix it!!!”  Bottom line, the WD TV Live Hub will not playback via iso or video_ts from DVDs that were created using the Sony DVD Recorder- VRD-MC6.  The Hub will either show a blank screen or “lock up” when I try to play these files.  This is a big deal for me since 99% of the media on my local drive are video_ts files created from home videos I burned to DVDs using the Sony recorder.  I’m very frustrated since WD fixed these problems with a previous firmware update, but now they are back!  I understand from other threads that rolling back the firmware is no longer allowed/recommended???  Is this correct?  What are my options??  Also, I’m not sure which firmware I was running previously that properly played these files.  Can anyone help me please??

Thanks foetus.  I will try rolling it back.  Actually, I went to do it tonight  and saw that 3.0.19 came out yesterday, which claimed a fix of the “TS” problems so I tried it first.  No such luck.  3.0.19 doesn’t fix the problem at least as far as DVDs made with the Sony vrd-mc6.  Maybe next time.

Sony devices tend to put strict copyright codes on contents recorded by their machines or porducts. This happened to many people I know and that is the reason I don’t buy any Sony Products. I am happy that my Panasonic DMR-EH55S (w/ 200GB HDD) standalone DVD recorder records and plays everything that I fed it to.

By the way, I have zero issues with video_ts file playback on ANY firmware - ZERO!

Hi,

I just bought the WD Live Hub and I’m experiencing the same issue with the DVD’s created with my Sony DVD recorder. Is there any fix available or can you give me the version number of the firmware which I need to rollback to to make this work?

Thanks in advance for replying!
