I’ve only been using WD TV Live for 2-3 weeks now. It’s been going OK, except for the “Spinning Arrow Of Death” (SAOD)! Any idea what causes the SAOD on WD TV Live?? Many times each day, after I choose a host for something to watch, I get the SAOD and it will just sit there and spin forever, never loading anything. It’s normal to see the arrow for ~5 seconds while it loads the program, but if it sticks around for 30+ seconds, I know I’m screwed! It’s not just from a particular script or host. It’s like it just locks up. The only fix (temporary) that I’ve found for this, is to reset to factory settings. It gets very annoying as I have to do this 10-20x every day. It seems to happens when I click on a link that may be bad, then the arrow spins forever, until I give up (5+ min). Then, even if I go to a link that I “know” is working, because I just finished watching it, I still get the non-stop spinning arrow. Seems like once it locks up on a link, NOTHING will open, until I completely reset the box. Then, I can go back to the link that I know was good earlier (as I had recently watched it) and it’ll work perfectly. It’s gets terribly annoying, as I’ll have to resetting 10-20 times/day!
Also, I get terrible stuttering on many links.
Is there a fix for this?? I must have the latest firmware, as its only a couple weeks old and it probably updated when I first hooked it up. I have 30 days to return this thing…
