Hi all -
I’ve used a WD TV Live for two years now, always with an old Sharp 37" 720p TV. I recently upgraded to a 46" Samsung Smart TV, and suddenly my perfect WD TV is causing problems! Videos that used to play smoothly (720p MKVs mostly) now stutter, as though they are dropping frames every .5 seconds or so. When I disconnect the HDD from the WD TV and connect it directly to the TV via the USB on the TV, then the same exact files play smoothly on the TV. I’ve tried turning off every kind of processing (motion, de-noise, etc) and there is no benefit. The same files also play with no problem on the old Sharp.
Is this a known issue? Is there any possible resolution? I like the Smart TV, and I need it to play network shares, but if they aren’t playing smoothly, then I’m going to have to look elsewhere!
