WD TV GEN2 Photo Speed


#1

Can someone please upload on youtube or point me to some video of th WD TV Gen 2 (not  live) viewing photos.

Is the FF and RW any better for home movies on thsi box too ?

I don’t know about home videos but…

The Gen2 does seem to be a little smoother when it comes to FF and RW than the Gen1, simply because it uses a faster chip… But I still consider it to be unacceptable as far as coming out of FF or RW is concerned. It always puts you a few seconds (probably about 10) on either side of where you hit the play button (never consistant though) which is completely annoying when you’re trying to get to a certain part of a movie or just rewind a few seconds so you can hear something you missed.

The WD2 is pretty slow on very large sized photos. I don’t know if that’s a hardware thing or firmware. Can’t give more specifics since I only tested the thing with a few pictures.

They look great on a big HDTV though.
