I and everyone else who owns a WDTV Gen 1 or 2 have been trying to get a firmware update for over 2 years.
Now, as predicted, WD have ignored everyone and just stuck their fingers in their ears until the gen 2 was EOL’d.
The problems are fully documented and numerous:
Colour space problems (this is huge…)
Various freezing problems
NOT HDMI COMPLIANT (ok, hardware fault, but might as well throw it in).
A very angry never-to-be-a-wdtv-customer again…
