Player: WD TV Live
Firmware tested: 1.2.21v, 1.03.49v, 1.04.10v, 1.04.17v
Content: 720p H264 AC3 mvk, 720p H264 m2ts capture from Hauppauge HD PVR
Issue: after a few seconds / minutes of play time, audio drops and video starts to stutter. it does not recover on its on.
I’ve tried each firmware listed above and each has the problem. I’ve hooked a laptop to the cable and tested transfer rate from my PC and saw an average of 4 MB / sec, so its not the network. I have a WD TV Live Plus in another room that streams an m2ts / h264 / 720 p capture just fine most of the time, whereas this unit - a WD TV Live ( not a Plus ) - does not; it will always start to stutter, etc.
Are there any magic switches I am overlooking to get this to work with the WD TV Live unit? Is 4 MB / sec somehow not enough bandwidth? Or can the chipsets on the unit simply not keep up? I’m ‘this’ close to giving up, returning the one unit I still can and going with a slingbox or just using a laptop till something else comes along. I *really* would like to stream not only HD but live video as well, but that seems near impossible at the moment. Should I just throw in the towel?
