I have the same issue(s).
Blockbuster: I just signed up, activated my WDTV Live Plus and browsed a few movies. Fine so far. Before renting anything, I wanted to see a trailed to check out the picture and sound quality. So I hit “Play Trailer” and I just get a blue and white circle in the center of my screen just circling and never loadng/showing the trailer (I waited almost 10 minutes). I tried this for several other movie selections and had the same result. I don’t want to rent a movie if I can’t watch it on WDTV Live Plus! Any suggestions?
Same thing with CinemaNow. When I select “Watch Trailer”, aal I get is a blue and white circle in the center of my screen just circling but the trailer never loads/plays.
Netflix: Movies, etc play fine. However, I do notice some issues/glitches.
(a) Audio volume: The volume I get from netflix when I use WDTC Live Plus is low. I have to turn up the volume of my AV receiver ver high to get to a level where I can listen adequately (& no, I am NOT hard of hearing). I have given details about my setup below, but when I connect my laptp to my system (using HDMI), the volume from netflix is fine. This happens for everything I play with Netflix (lots of movies and TV shows). Also volume of movies and music I play from my computer via WDTV Live Plus is fine and appropriately loud. So I think it is a netflix specific issue.
(b) Audio language: I was watching he TV series “24” (Series 1, Episode 1) and when checking out audio & subtitle options, I saw it is also available in Hindi (Stereo). For kicks I chose that and also chose English subtitles. It still played in English and without any subtitles. Don’t know if the issue is with Netflix or with WDTV Live plus. I haven’t seen the option for other language much, but I have been able to get substitles for a few movies on Netflix.
