Anyone else having trouble with the WD TV Live’s USB ports since 1.04.22_V?
Everything worked fine with 1.04.17_V, but ever since 1.04.22_V, USB keeps failing for me.
Initially all works well, but after a few days the WD TV Live ignores anything plugged in, be it a simple USB-Stick with music, a camera with photos, or a keyboard. Nothing happens upon plugging in, nor re-plugging.
I have not yet identified what might trigger the failure. Simply unplugging the WD TV Live from power and replugging it after 10 seconds usually fixes the issue, but I have to do this rather frequently. I do keep a wireless Keyboard’s USB-dongle permanently plugged in, but it worked fine with 1.04.17_V, but not so well before. It seems to me like that keyboard bugfix from 1.04.17_V was undone in 1.04.22_V.
This bug is especially embarrasing: my wife wanted to show pics on the camera to a friend, and I intervened saying that it is much more convenient on the big TV. So I triumphantly snatched the camera and plugged it in, only to find nothing happening. I fiddled around and eventually the girls gave me that “yeah, we’ve seen boys and their technology before and knew this would happen”-look on their faces, and then just took the camera back from me and watched the pictures on that tiny LCD of the camera. So embarrassing, y’know. It happened two more times, and now I only plug in a USB-Device into the WD TV Live if I am all alone - and it still dowsn’t work.
