I just bought a WD TV Live and it worked great when connected to my pre-amp until I upgraded the firmware with the notification that popped up. If I bypass the pre-amp and directly connect the WD TV to the Telivision then it works. I had to rollback the firmware to version 1.12.14 and it worked again when connected to my pre-amp.
Here is the hardware I’m using:
WD TV Live
Marantz AV 7701 Pre-Amp
Panasonic VT25 connected to Monitor 1 on Pre-Amp
Panasonic VT25 connected to Monitor 2 on Pre-Amp
Sony TV (not sure of the model) connected to Xone 2 on Pre-Amp
I would also like to note that this issue exists with the WD TV Live Hub as I bought that also to expirement and see which one would work better but it had that same exact issue. I rolleback the firmware on the WD TV Live Hub to 3.08.14 in order to work again with my Marantz Pre-Amp.
Any suggestions of fixes for getting WD TV to continue working on future firmware upgrades would be nice. For now I have disabled firmware update notifications so I’m not tempted to upgrade.
