If so, I would appreciate your thoughts on it. I haven't messed with any of the past models and been wanting an ISO and Netflix HD player (non-PC).
Yes it is definitely a WDTV Live Plus. It is not on the Best Buy site, but others here have said they have seen them there3, so I asked a salesman who said they did not have any and could not even find any of the regular Live (v2). Anyway I wandered around the store over by the hard drives and lo and behold there was one (1) sitting all by itself on the shelf! I grabbed it quick and checked out ($139). I could have gotten it cheaper from buy.com but I didn't want to wait.
I am still playing with it and am impressed that it played some video_ts folders that no other media player has been able to play (all of them James Bond movies). I am less impressed by the menu structure and the need to navigate drive folders, but this is probably just like previous versions of the wdtv; this may be because i have several folders on my disk, with movies duplicated in video_ts and mp4 formats in different folders. Also, the folder icons that I found on another thread (http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1144749
) only show as small thumbnails and not the entire preview window; is this because they need resizing? What size is the preview window?I assume that I would do the same for video_ts folders, but is there any way to set movie info (actors, synopsis, genre, etc) for a video_ts? Thanks.
