Western Digital - WD TV Live Media Player (WDTV2) - Page 237

post #7081 of 7090
Hi All

I'm not sure this is the right thread but I have a Gen 1 WDTV Live and I was running firmware 1.03.49 because I was having music shuffling problems and recently upgraded to 1.06.43 as WD claimed they had fixed that (dumb me) and I'm still having the issues however it seems WD doesn't want you to downgrade anymore and took the older versions off their website. Does anyone has backup of 1.03.49 or any other advice for me to fix the shuffling issue.

Thanks

Thanks techflaws , I got all I needed in that forum... I downgraded to WD Official 1.06.15 and then installed WDLXTV 1.03.49 and I'm happy again as all my music is shuffling randomly again.

Personally, I'm having huge problems with the networking on my unit.

Sometimes it sees my stuff and sometimes it doesn't. Any solutions to this?

Thanks

When this happens to me a simple reboot of the device and/or computer with my media files fixes the networking issues. One thing that really helped lessen this is using powerline Ethernet to hardwire it to my network instead of relying on wifi (if this is an option for you).

Mine IS hardwired to a router..

This happens all the time though. You mean I have to reboot everything everytime this stops working?

Check this out.

Personally I have to reboot one or the other or both about every 1 to 2 weeks. Networks are a pain to troubleshoot. Maybe others have better advice.

Quick question, which might be a little silly.

Looking at snagging this TV: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN40EH5300-40-Inch-1080p-Black/dp/B0074FGR74/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1397442833&sr=8-1&keywords=UN40EH5300FXZA

It's a 40" LED Samsung Smart TV with Built-In WIFI. I currently have one WDTV Live Unit that I'm planning on using with a Projector (that I have yet to buy). I'm planning on purchasing another WDTV and I'm assuming that the above TV will connect to the WDTV wirelessly without issue, which will then be able to access my networked hard drive with movies and what not. Am I thinking this through correctly?

Thanks in advance!

The WDTV has to be connected to the TV via HDMI. You can use the streamer's built-in WiFi to connect to your wireless router, but not to your TV.
