Video/Audio Problem (stutter?)


#1

Hello guys, I’ve been using my WD TV Gen 1 for about 6 months and I love it, but for the last few times its been acting weird, specially with 1080p movies, it plays fine, but at random times of the movie the video and sound would stutter, sometimes it goes back to normal, but sometimes it doesn’t, they only way I found to fix it when I’m watching is to go backwards a few second and hit play again, then everything is back, but even so, depending on the movie, it happens 10-20 seconds later.

Yesterday watching the Surrogates was terrible, every 10 min or so that was happening. I have my unit plugged to a receiver with optical cable and then to my Sony TV. And that leads to another question the files I’m playing are 24p, should I set my wdtv to 24p? Right now is at Auto.

Hi,

I just added a message with the same problem like you have, same player.

Did you manage to find a problem ?

Exactly same problem here. And I am using a USB Passport HD, so no network problem…
