WD Player Slow in Starting Movies + "Recent" Folder is always empty

I have two problems ever since upgrading (through the player).

The first, is that it takes the player quite a long time to start movies in the “Video” secion (YouTube usually works more or less OK, and when it doesn’t, it seems to be linked to slow connection problems/overload on my broadband).

The second, is that recent movies played are not presented in my “Recent” folder. It stays empty.

I have seen here some advices on resetting (or even just deplugging) the WD Live Media Player, but unfortunately they don’t work for me. I am not sure I want to downgrade - one of my only joys from the newer version is Deezer.

Did you ever fixed this issue?
