It’s not just you. I hooked up a WD Live Hub this weekend. Got the two firmware updates between my unit and the 2.50.08 version installed and running.
For a while over the weekend, Netflix was streaming just fine…Even while copying some of my other TV episodes to the device in the background.
Starting Sunday night, Netflix would continually lock up the device completely. No tricks worked and even a full reset of the device proved to be only a temporary fix, as the same lock up issues would happen again and again.
I should also point out that I have streamed Netflix service on this laptop and an LG TV with the same service…both without issues during this time. All of this tells me that the Netflix Service, my home network, Internet connection, nor anything else in the chain is responsible for this…except for this device.
One thing I did notice about this iteration of the firmware relative to the Netflix service is it seems to be code incomplete. By that I mean, if you’re in the Netflix service and press the “Home” button on the remote, the pop-up box you get asking you to confirm your desire to leave the service is labeled as “Undefined”. My strong suspicion is that the freezeups are possibly caused either by incomplete code in the firmware revision and/or Netflix trying to “re-buffer” itself as it’s designed to do when it sense a loss of speed/connectivity and this particular device (or firmware) not knowing how to properly handle it.
