I have been using WD live for a long time and had never problem with it.
Few days ago I bought TV Live Plus because I wanted to use my network shares. Out of the box after two firmware updates the unit found my network right away and I was able to use internet resources and also access my network shares.
But than problems started. What is happening now is that I can see the network shares and I can play any file but only for 5-10 minutes. After short time screen just gets black and a minute after prompt pops out that the network is lost. The funny thing is that right after that I can go to network share and select same file and play it and I will even get the option to continue from where it stopped. Now it happens all the time and intervals are anywhere between 5 and 10 minutes.
I am running XP and Linksys Router with direct cable connection to the WD Live Plus.
Another problem I have is occasional and it happens when I play files from USB attached drive. Sometimes it happens that the file will stop playing and the screen will go black, and the unit act like it is frozen. After you come to main interface and select the same file you get only the circle in the middle of the screen rolling (start reading the file) and it just sits there doing nothing. I have to restart WD Live and than select file and everything is OK it plays till the end without problem.
Please if someone can offer some help especially for the network problem, because the unit is completely useless without this feature. I am afraid that the unit is somehow defective.
Thanks in advance
