My baby WD TV Live HD doesnt play avi files anymore. This is the Gen 2 (the one without the wireless connection). Everything was working until one day I came home to find that my ADSL modem/router wouldnt connect to the ISP. After much troubleshooting, the ADSL/Modem router was replaced under warranty. Then I found that my WD TV Live wont play any avi files or open photos. These are the same files that I used to be able to open previously.
When I plug in my usb drive, I can see the preview of the photos however when I open them, all get it the spinning wheel and that just keeps on going on and on.
For avi files, when I open them, it says the file format is not supported. However I used to be able to open these before
My WD TV Live is connected to my ADSL/Modem router using a network cable but it cannot connect to the internet anymore. I found that the MAC address for the network adapter is listed as 00:00:00:00:00:00 and the lights dont come up at the back where you connect the cable.
I have upgraded the unit to the latest firmware however this hasnt solved the issue.
I tried playing the same files on my friends Gen 3 WD Live (with the wireless connection) and they work fine.
Have I lost my WD TV for good or is there anyway to revive it?
