How? do you log in normal? Did you jump through the 2nd verifacation hoops google suggested? I did with no luck. I belive google is causing this not wdtv. But it is coming of as a half promise. Same could be said for external drive use.
I bought the product with high hopes for the specific promise of using an external hard drive and online content. Also liked the home interface theme… I have been disappointed by most of the things that drew me to wdtv live.Pandora is the only thing besides netflix I can actually log into. I was hoping I would be able to use my account with snag films so I could que films for later from my PC to cut down on slow searching but there is no option for that. Same for youtube it has login but does not work at all. I want to use spotify but why pay a monthly fee and risk no login again same with Hulu plus. at this point you could say go ahead it works fine but I would be very hesitant to believe it. Netflix has behaved a little odd on a few logins and I thought wow if this is gone I bet so are a lot of current and potential customers. I have experience with several htpc’s and media streamers and realize there will be and expect a learning curve. But now I have my media in the library showing proper info and thumbs. I am noticing other functions not living up to the hype. The main disappointment was it not working with my WD external drive and losing 20 GBs just to find out. So now I am forced to hook the external drive up to a pc and network. not the situation I was hoping for. The login trouble is a real downer. Basically the hardware I bought to replace the htpc I threw together with junk parts and solve some problems like space and energy use and the hope of stability at the moment is not turning out to be the answer. I do still think the problems are minor and there is a ton of room for development. Listen to the community and try to get decent input from them when you can.That seems to work for the XBMC community and look at the products it has spawned XBMC is always improving and proving to be the king. While Plex and Boxxee are rising in many areas.
Sorry for the almost rant but I do RTFM and I do google and trial and error before commenting on a situation. So if there is an answer or a soloution to the google login problm a lot of people are having not just a select few I would be happy to give it a try. The other problems will most likely work out in the long to short run. But if there is a conflict due to the google tv situation and they are intentionaly blocking other devices will there be a truce
