Workaround for the audio distortion issue?


#1

Since I mostly use my WD TV Live for music listening, I’ve been trying  to deal with the excessive gain issue which causes audio distortion as best I can:

So far the only workaround known is to push the reset button on the unit then power it on, every time you use it. I’ve actually done this several times - it’s almost worth it to have clear music - but I’m just about at the end of my patience now. I just want music that doesn’t distort. I don’t think that’s too much to ask.

Are there any other known workarounds to this issue? Any chances WD might actually address it?

Cheers

I will escalate this.  However, it does sound like the device is defaulting to another setting after it’s been playing. 

I saw that you posted this as a request in the Idea Exchange.  There’s not much more that can be done at this point, so any further posting will be just a waste since WD engineers don’t monitor this forum.  I’m locking this thread.
