OK, I thought I did all my research. The WD TV Live Media player had excellent reviews for the most part from Tigerdirect “this thing played everything I threw at it”, and after looking at a bunch of competing products I settled on it because I want two USB drives. I currently have a patriot box office but it only has one. I have 2 Iomega 2TB USB drives and tones of movies in MPEG1 compression. I was watching Transformers when my WD TV came and I plugged it in, it fired up with no problem and I started watching the movie…It was ridiculous. Both the audio and vidio was stop-start, I felt like I was watching streaming video over a freaking modem.
So I had this great idea that I should upgrade the firmware. Thats when I started seeing all the posting about the new firmware completely ruining everyones box.
I don’t care about network streaming, I run everything off USB drives…is there something I am missing? Any Ideas?
Should I just return this[Deleted] to Tigerdirect and leave a scathing review…I am so pissed that I can’t even play movies!
