Hi. I have a WD TV Live Plus. Is it possible to update the interface? This is painstaikingly ugly, especially when compared to Apple TV or XBMC. I was actually hoping to install XBMC, but have found that this is impossible (or so that’s the word around the internet).
I’m almost tempted to return my WD and get the Apple TV becuse of this hideous interface. In fact, I originally had the WD TV Live Hub (with internal 1 TB hard drive), which had a better interface, but I found the device to be nothing but a huge hassle to manage. The only reason I don’t go for the Apple TV is because the two units function differently. With the WD, I connect my external hard drive and play virtually any file. With the Apple TV, I can’t connect an external. Instead, all files are played over the network from other computers or Apple devices, which MUST be ON at the time of playback, and those files must be organized through iTunes. And Apple TV doesn’t readily support many of the files that WD does. But, if Apple TV does come out with a unit that competes (functionally) with the WD, then it’s bye-bye WD.
