I have a WD TV Live Hub. It automatically indicates when there is a new firmware update. However, when I have it download via my ethernet connection to Mac Intel Duo (high speed DSL 7 MB), it stops about halfway and discontinues firmware upgrade. OK, so I know how to do this using a USB drive. Even downloading the firmware online from the WD site to my Mac, the download will stop two or three times in the process. Luckily, I learned long ago that when this happens, I just pause the download and restart it. I eventually get the download. (The pain of using my USB drive to upgrade the HUB is that I have to disconnect the ethernet and restart the unit so that it sees the firmware on the USB drive, and doesn’t just try the abortive download from the net. Then I have to reconnect the ethernet and restart).
So do other people have this problem and is there a problem with the WD firmware server as the download aborts both from the HUB and my Mac (except only the Mac lets me restart the download)?
