Love my WDTV Live Hub. It is a great little device but I have an issue I am trying to debug that I am hoping is not hardware related.
I have a Samsung B series LCD, 46" 1080P 60Hz. I have the Hub attached by HDMI and use the optical out to my receiver. I have put a bunch of my dvds onto the harddrive by ripping them using DVD Fab to folders, then Handbrake High Profile to m4v.
Randomly the screen will go blank, and the Samsung will show the signal specs, like (1920x1080 60HZ) as if the signal was just cut and returned, or switched size/frequency. It does not happen offen, sometime not at all during a movie, but at other times too much (8 - 10 times during a movie). I started debugging by trying various different video output options but nothing seemed to make a difference. I am back to 1080p/60hz auto rgb low.
I was beginning to think it might be the bitrate, but yesterday I came back after pausing a movie for about an hour, and when I hit a key on the remote the movie was STILL PAUSED (I think I hit right arrow) but the screen started flashing constantly every 2 seconds or so. So nix bit-rate right?
I am going to do some more debugging tonight (new hdmi cable, my other LCD) but I dont think I am going to be able to determine for sure what/where the problem lies. Does anyone here have any insights or debugging tips?
