The startup time of my WDTV is well above 20 minutes. There seems to be a direct relation between how much content is on the external harddrive and how long time it takes for the device to become fully functional.
I use my 2 Tb disk for a Time Machine backup, so obviously it has a lot of data on it besides media. Before I started using backups I recall startup times being a lot faster. Another issue is that the WiFi USB dongle is also non-functional until the USB drive has initialized.
I tried disabling the media library, but it doesn’t do any difference. When can I expect a firmware update to fix this?
