Well, the last firmware release for Live Plus did it for me, as I can see for tens of thousands out there.
I must admit, in spite of a few troubled releases I was always able to rollback until a stable release came.
While the player worked, I liked it.
But now, after many, many attempts to rollback to the previous release, I’m done with this product.
I will enjoy walking it down to the curb and throwing it in the crusher tomorrow, garbage day.
Oh, and thanks to the guy that pointed me to another product that seems to appear to work for millions, Dune. I’ll be checking that one out and others. I’ll be researching other products for sure. One thing I’m making sure of that updates work correctly, and QA is done.
All I really wanted with this one was to watch various video formats, I don’t care about youtube, and all the other online **bleep**. I have a computer for that stuff. I have a few WD drives, it will be a long time in **bleep** before I buy anything for this company again.
I read this was to be the last firmware update for WD Live Plus. It’s now a dead product. Thanks for telling us that before we all did this update.
If you’re reading this and you work for WD on this product line, I’d keep a low profile right now, update your resume, or transfer out as quickly as possible. The suits won’t be happy when they find out about this one. It’s going to hit the bottom line.
For anyone considering a media server product, well… you know what I’d like to say.
OK, I feel better now.
PS: I usually don’t post much, but I just had to register to get this off my chest.
