Hi there- I’ve been trawling the net looking for a solution to this, and despite being widely reported and well documented, it seems there isn’t a proper solution yet to the scrambled image/split screen issues when running this unit in Component Mode on a CRT. My Nintendo Wii and DVD work just fine in component mode on 2 TV’s I have for testing- yet the WD Live (as much as I love it) isn’t working properly here, no matter what settings I try. The best image I can manage is a split screen at standard PAL settings.
Suggestions have been made elsewhere that the lack of interlace support at lower resolutions may be to blame? Either way, it’s unacceptable that this device won’t work on normal televisions with component (a standard that has been around for a VERY long time.)
Will a firmware fix do the trick? Or do I need to get a refund on this device and try something else?
Any input much appreciated. I tried to reply to an existing thread, but the forum wouldn’t let me (quite an old thread anyway) http://community.wdc.com/t5/General-Discussions/WDTV-Live-Component-Video-Problem/m-p/1321/highlight/true#M681
