I’ll try to explain my problem as precisely as possible, but I apologize if it isn’t that clear since English isn’t my mother language.
I recently bought a WD TV Live (the last model, with WiFi included). Since the beginning, I suffered from playback problems. Since I was reading files through a wireless G router (and using Samba on a Windows machine), I assumed this was a networking problem, and I purchased a DLink DIR-655 that allowed me to benefit from the 802.11n protocol. But the problems persevered.
Yesterday, I played a video file with the following properties: MKV, 876MB, H264 1280*720, Dolby-Digital(AC-3). The file was located on an external USB flash drive (Kingston DataTraveler 8GB). During the video playback, I suffered three times from the following problem:
The subtitles hang, even though the video and sound go on;
The video freezes from something lige 10-15 seconds;
The video catches up quickly and the playback then continues normally until next freeze.
This problem makes me think it is not a networking problem, as I was initially assuming, since I also suffer from problems with videos located on external flash drives connected to the USB port of the device. FYI, the version of my firmware is the following: 1.07.15 (european device).
Does anyone know what causes this and how I can fix it?
