I just got a WDTV Live Plus on Tuesday. I bought it to replace a Brite-view Cinematube primarily because of the Netflix support.
Unfortunately, in the last 2 days, with not a lot of heavy usage, I have experienced several cases where a DVD image playback would “stutter” and the sound would drop out.
These are DVD rips that are stored on a network share as the raw data files, i.e., a VIDEO_TS folder filled with VOB, IFO and BUP files.
I have played dozens and dozens and dozens of these things on my Cinematube without a single problem. I have a wired (MOCA) connection to my computer where all the files are stored on a network share. With the Cinematube, it played everything perfectly regardless of whether I was running BitTorrent software at the time.
With the WDTV, I’ve now had this stutter-no-sound problem on at least three different disc images. I turned off my BT client to see if that made a difference, but no dice. I upgraded the firmware. No dice.
Has anyone else experienced (or, more importantly, SOLVED) this problem or should I resign myself to packing this thing back in the box?
