I’ve owned a live plus for about 6 months and I really love it. I’ve seen a lot of people complain about it in these forums, but mine works flawlessly. I use it in my bedroom and it does everything I need, except for a few things. Can anyone confirm the actual differences between the this new one and the live plus? At the moment, I can only see the following differences, according to WD’s website:
$99.99 MSRP vs $129.99 MSRP
Gigabit ethernet vs standard 10/100
The only features I was really hoping for are the following:
Full blu-ray ISO support, including menu’s (my Live Plus plays BR .iso’s perfect, just no menu support).
Support for 3D blu ray ISO’s.
Remote with programmable power and volume buttons so I can control my TV with it.
IP control (so you have have an iPhone / Android app control it)
Would anyone be able to confirm any of those features?
Also, it seems weird that they’re calling this the “live” and charging $99, when the “live plus” is $129.99. It makes it feel like this will be a more stripped-down model, don’t you think?
