WD TV Live Streaming Media Player

Can any one tell me if a WD TV Live Streaming Media Player is available with volume control included in the remote control.

Thanks in advance,


In the HARDWARE remote:  No.

In the SOFTWARE Remote App:  Yes.

Thanks for the reply, all I now need to make my day is to find the “app” works on my android mobile.

Am off to check if its possible.


I emailed the good news to my friend (the delighted owner of a WD TV Live Streaming Media Player) but in his  reply he mentioned he can not get this facility on his android mobile.

Please don’t feel I am doubting your advice, but before I search on ebay for a early model iphone I wonder if his version of software (if that’s what you call it) is the correct version.

Thanks for your help.


I take it, that you’ve read the Requirements ?
