I've been setting up my WD TV Play and yes, it does feature 24p output, as well as a color space setting and the ability to set a DNS server address (just one, no secondary or tertiary) and a YouTube player with their horrible "LeanBack" UI. Unfortunately it might not have the Netflix stream info overlay (like this
) that the WD TV Live supposedly has; it's activated with the Option button on the Live, but pressing that at any time while in the Netflix player boots you out.
One hyper-cool feature that it has is that if you start music playing in Pandora and exit the music keeps playing until you do something which makes sound. So you can start some tunes and go view some photos in Picasa (or set up a slideshow with which to bore company
). I suspect that you can do that with any music service but I haven't checked it out. (It'd be even cooler if it paused and resumed music around whatever audible app you were using).
It's video file player is pretty nice. I thought that it didn't do DLNA but it does. It plays out of MOV, WMV, AVI, MPG and MKV containers that I've tried so far; of those, Roku can only deal with MKVs and it has no official DLNA function (there are available channels). I've also played some files from a flash drive with no problems.
All in all I'm fairly pleased with it, particularly given its $70 price point. If it had the Netflix info overlay that I'd really like and an Amazon player it could be my primary player. Given the lack of the info overlay I may return it and buy a WD TV Live refurb for a similar price.Edited by michaeltscott - 3/9/13 at 1:42am
