Guys,
I am currently have the WD TV Live plus and it is very slow booting up. I need another one with LAN connection for a second room and do not know which one is a good buy with faster booting/loading. Been reading about Micca and others and still do not know which one to get. Thanks in advance.

Still running stock firmware on the WDTVs? The modded firmware makes them boot FAST.

I have a Harmony remote. If I press 'all off' to turn off my TV, receiver, etc..., it will turn off everything and I like it when I can just press one button to turn on what I want to watch and all off to turn off everything once I am done viewing.
Where do I get a modded FW please?

You can have the harmony leave your player on when hit the master off button. I do that for my cable box which is always on.

I don't think u can use custom firmware on the new WDTV units. Only custom themes.

My Dune D1 goes to sleep mode when I run my activites to switch to something else using my Harmony 880. When I switch back to that activity, it boots up in about 3 seconds.

Just because I don't care, doesn't mean I don't understand.
