About once a day my WD TV live seems to get something stuck in it’s craw, and slows down to the point of not being usable. At that point if I try to copy a file through windows sharing I get a permissions error, and so suspect that it’s having fun dealing with the 2TB WD drive it’s attached to (I’ve turned off the Media Library option).
If I then do “Reset to Factory Settings”, everything repairs itself - except of course that I lose my network settings and my YouTube Account info, etc.
I wouldn’t even mind all that, except that the TV I attach it to only supports Component at 480i and 1080i. I can’t seem to figure out a way to get the WD TV Live to do that except to take it upstairs to my other TV which supports more Component options, set it up there, then disconnect and take back downstairs. Since the downstairs TV is a 52" model, having to go behind it a couple times a day is a major PITA.
Is there someway once the WD TV Live has been reset to tell it to go to Component output at 480i or 1080i? The TV is so old it doesn’t have HDMI, so that’s not an option. Maybe some number of hits of the reset switch, or length of time, or… ?
