Received my WD LIVE PLUS this week after just having signed up for Netlfix I wanted something simple to view the instant content without plugging in my notebook to to TV or having to buy a Wii, etc. My wife was not as excited as I was (she doesn’t appreciate my geekiness)
Anyway, everything was easy to set up and we were enjoying Netlfix, Youtube (using wired, not wi-fi, just to eliminate any possible headaches from that) and I even had my external USB drive with some DIVX movies playing fantastic.
However, today, after only 3 days it appears to be completely dead. Can’t boot, won’t even respond to the paperclip reset. Just sits there with a bit WD logo. Now, granted, we were using it pretty heavily, but I didn’t see any warnings about limiting the time of usage to avoid damage…
So I figured, OK, bad luck. I’ll get an RMA and see how good their return policy/process is. Duh duh duh… Got an internal server error on the RMA web form.
So now here I sit, 125 bucks poorer and not able to enjoy my purchase.
Just venting and wondering, anyone else having similar experience with WD TV “DEAD” PLUS?
