Have a WDTV Live HD that worked perfectly under windows 7. (latest firmware 1.06.34_V).
Since I upgraded to windows 8, video (that worked perfectly before) starts only after several seconds, plays for a couple of seconds and then stops. Looks like buffering is not workng at all. Video’s play fine on windows itself.
No problems selecting files - i.e. no shares problem.
Tried several different media centers (however PS3 worked perfectly on w7).
Uninstalled codecs and re-installed (K-Lite and Shark), both 32 & 64 bits.
Which firmware? 1.06.34_V
-What happened? play back stutter and then stops.
-What were you doing? upgraded pc to windows 8
-Does this happen every time? Yes.
-What hardware and media were you using? WD Live HD - different media - gigabyte wired connection.
-Did this happen with previous firmware? Firmware did not change between updating to windows 8.

I’m a little lost here. Don’t want to go back to w7.
