It is a known issue (at least to me).
How are you playing your files? SMB? DLNA? Local?
In my case, I am using SMB and DLNA, and both access methods display this issue. I wonder if it has to do with improper polling by the WDTV to prevent the LAN connection from being lost, resulting in playing back only the buffer amount...
Are you connected to your shares behind a switch?
I have the DGS-2205 switch which has "green" features - which shuts down the link after a certain period of inactivity. I don't know if this is what causes the problem, nor have I tested any methods to prevent this from happening. My workaround has been to "STOP" and "RESUME" the movie.
