NOTE: A query of the word alternatives shows the most recent post is from 2017 and since its Dec 2019 I don’t consider this post a duplication of existing posts.
As we all know the popular and robust WD media devices were discontinued several years ago and most of us have been finding ways to keep using our (potentially) decade old WD media devices and or find alternatives and so this post is about what are WD media players owners current options for alternatives as of Dec 2019? What are some consumer friendly and readily available alternatives to these beloved but long discontinued devices?
I for one have 2 WD Media Live devices (but only 1 remote and its on its last leg) and an older WD Plus which the remote no longer works with. For years we have loved and enjoyed our WD devices but its getting more and more problematic to use these because the Box will lock up (and have to reboot) or we’re having issues with the remote. For someone who is looking for a consumer friendly device that is an alternative to the WD media devices what is available as of Dec 2019 that others would recommend and why?
My goal is to replace my own WD media devices but also to start a thread that others will benefit from in the future if like m,e they come to this site looking for advice on what to do now that their own WD media device is in need of replacing.
