WD TV works over network but not with local drive

About a month ago, my WD TV Live Streaming Media Player (netflix version) started to have problems playing files on local disks (same with both HDs and flash drives). After a while, the video becomes jerky and eventually the WD TV freezes. Only a reboot gets it working again. However, when I play files from a Mac over my network through the media server software “Playback”, everything works fine. How can this be? Anyone know why and if o\it can be fixed.

I’m mainly playing remux .mkv files of Blu-ray disks.


Have you tried resetting the drive using the physical button on the side of the unit?

The files that you are trying to play locally are the same as the one on the Mac?
