in the last few weeks I have found at least a dozen of posts with users talking about the same problem:
The image freezes while playing a video and the devides does not respond to the remote.
the solutions given in all theses posts the can be summarized in the following:
1 “Rollback to the earlier version of the software”. Say goodbye to p2p downloads, Miracast, Grid themes…
This seems to work in most cases but not in all. In my case this “solved” the problem
2 “Disconnect the device from de internet network”. This option disables most of the features we bought the device for in the first place.
3.- “Disable the WiDi (wireless display or miracast) in the network settings (wifi direct)”. I tried this one and it didn`t work
4.- “Set manually dns 127.0.0.1 in the network settings of the WDTV. This is a special IP address, that refers to your WDTV.
This prevents the WDTV to go to the internet.
So now you can playback without any block all files over your nas (in your internal network) or usb drives.”
I have not tried this solution.
Does anyone know of another solution? Please let us know in this thread.
WD releasing a new version of firmware to correct a bug which affects a high number of devices? I hope so.
