I have looked up how to update firmware (Currently running 1.01.70!) and find problems as follows:
First suggestion: connect your WD TV Live to an Internet connection and the WD TV Live will automatically check and notify you a new firmware is available … is impossible since there is NO NETWORK ACCESS. No plug/socket/cat 5 etc or wireless connection option.
Second instruction states: "…Download the latest firmware update compressed file…Connect the USB drive to the WD TV Live Media Player’s USB port…
- select the Settings bar.
- Select the firmware upgrade icon, and then press ENTER.
The problem with the latter is that there is NO “Firmware Upgrade” selection.
Is there a special keystroke or some D&D type hidden switch that the documentation fails to mention.
Or is this player simply dead in the water. It was purchased about a year ago.
Otherwise, I can find no other identifiers on the kit or in the “About” statement.
My apology if this is a repeat…couldn’t find a previous answer.
