WDTV HDMI Connection Issues with New Firmware

Hi guys,

I am running three WDBHG70000N WDTV with the new 2.02.32 firmware in my house.

Since updating, 2 of the three units are having HDMI handshake issues!  The WDTV will power on, and my tv will turn on and switch to the proper input for the WDTV, yet the TV’s show 'no signal.

To fix it, I have to unplug the HDMI cord and plug it back in, and sometimes do that in combination with swapping to a different input and back to the WDTV input, to get the tv’s to re-initiate the HDMI handshake process.

This never happened with the same TVs and WDTV boxes on previous firmwares, so I believe the issue is with the new 2.02.32 firmware.

Can anyone assist with potential solutions, or at least console me with confirmation I am not the only one having these issues?


Hi amorak, can you try doing a rollback to the previous firmware version?
