I got a mint conditions refurb a few weeks ago for $49, hard to beat. Actually dumped one of my Rokus - I much prefer the Wd unit.

Anyway, got a question. I picked up a Slingbox last week too, the Solo version got it for $15 delivered - not bad. I streamed to my WD but the picture was not full screen any ideas why? I am feeding it from an SD Dtivo in one of my bedrooms, not sure if the SD feed is the issue or if it's a settings problem or if it's just the way it displays.

Hello All,

I didn't know WD dropped Neflix on the new units. So I had to get a Roku 3 just for Netflix. R3 will not play DTS HD MA or Dolby TrueHD sound! So now I use the WD for the better audio and R3 for Netflix! Is there one unit taht does everything?

Yes the WD Live SMP 3rd Gen. It has Netflix and does HD Audio.

The 4th generation is actually still the 3rd generation hardware-wise and the latest Live-SMP update makes the UI the same as the the new WDTV-MP.

The only difference between the models is reflected in the spat between WD and Netflix that resulted in it's removal from the current product. So get the Live-SMP while it is still available at normal prices and you will get all the features plus Netflix.

The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten . . . life is too short to drink bad wine

Having a problem deleting a title. I deleted it via the wdtv live smp. And the folder keeps coming back. Just now, I deleted it from the wdtv. Then unplugged it. Went to my computer where the shares are and didn't see the movie. Then all of the sudden it reappeared. But the only files inside were there:

wdtv.cas2
wdtv.cas2_no_check_content_0090a9677d42

What's the deal? thanks guys.

checked the 30 minute mark on my PC this morning, no issue.

given that the issue happened every 30 minutes (almost exactly) I'm inclined to think the issue is heat related. I suppose I could hook up a laptop fan to the USB port. Weird that I never had this issue before.
