Watched Videos + Running HDD


Is there a way to keep the watched videos icon on for an external HDD? Seems to be every time i turn it off and on, the shows dont have the little half circle on them anymore.
Also when i turn the power off the whole way on the unit, the external HDD (powered by a plug, not USB) seems to still run and idle. Is there a way to turn this off the whole way without unplugging it? Dont want the HDD running all day when its not in use.

Thanks for the help

  1. No

  2. Press and Hold the Power button on the remote control for 5 Seconds for a Complete Shutdown

If you are pressing the Power button for 1 second you are putting the WDTV into Standby (which is why your HDD’s are still running)
