After being a user of the original WDTV units v1 & v2 I stopped buying anymore WD players due to their pityful support and nasty habit EOL’ing half finished products. Finally I re-joined the WD fold when I purchased a v3 LIVE.
First the positives…an awesome player (at last). This really is an excellent piece of kit. No more making cover art tiles in Photoshop!!!
Fast, slick and supurb picture output.
If anyone searches out my old posts, you’ll see I always used lossless Blu-ray m2ts as my file of choice. Yes they’re big, but once you crop out the unwated sound tracks and PGS files you can often shave 3-5GB off.
Now I have one of these, I too am at the crossroads facing the big Elephant in the Room…3tb Drive support.
As of right now, mid 2012, who has got their 3tb external “USB” (not NAS) drive working perfectly with a “V3” Live without resorting to things like partitioning as 2 smaller volumes etc.
Who has got any “non” WD brands working?
By answering this you will be helping many users concerned about buying into 3tb.
