I am using a WD TV Live with v1.02.21 firmware to watch MPEG files (from a Hauppauge WINTV_HVR_1950) stored on a Windows XP Pro computer connected via a wired network. Recordings of standard definition programs play back normally. When I play recordings of HD programs I get a number of strange effects:
The program will intermittently pause for somewhere between 7 and 10 seconds. Sometimes these pauses will be 10 minutes apart and sometime only half a minute apart. During the pause, the sound stops, and the picture freezes, but the program timer continues to count up.
Fast forwarding and rewinding are totally unpredictable. Sometimes they work normally. Sometimes when I press the play button to resume normal play the program either jumps back to where I started the fast forward/rewind or it just jumps ahead another minute or two.
