Hello everyone. First post so here goes…
Bought a WDTV Live last week and loved it. Had a couple of freezes on music at first but seemed to sort itself out. HD mkvs were streaming fine and regular from my NAS and Laptop except for one which would freeze after a while (time varied. I put this down to the mkvmerge issue but remuxing or cleaning had no affect.)
Connection would then be lost with network and a reset/reboot was required. But now the reset/reboots don’t work. They get me connected to the network but files that played before be it avi, mkv or whatever won’t play via Ethernet for longer than around ten minutes. One almost played through to the end but never the less froze.
But they do play on USB. Is this an overheat issue or a problem with the internal NIC? I’ve tried elevating the unit and it does still get warm.
I’ve emailed WD but no resolution/reply yet. It’s been escalated but I get the impression this is a common fault. It seems the NIC is sensitive to heat?
Thanks in advance!
p.s. If this is in the wrong place can the Mods move it? I’m not sure how.
