Streaming issues

I’m seeing the exact same type of issues being reported here ( on my WD Live TV Plus. Videos stream fine fort a period of time and then my entire network essentially has a seizure and the WD TV becomes unresponsive for several minutes (likely due to extreme slowdown of the network). Since the solution for that thread seems to be a firmware update to resolve the issue and we haven’t seen an update in 10 months, am I just basically out of luck?

Not necessarily 

there might be some updates coming

we just don’t know when
