Im running it but i didnt get a chance to really run the stock version all that much so im not really sure whats different i just figured it would need updating first thing because my unit was new.

It plays the Video_ts files better then the update it had on it so thats good for me.

Still havnt found out how to do the thumbnail thing just yet with Video_Ts folders.

pack21 04-30-2009 05:01 PM

I think this .07 is the the prerelease .07, but with fix bugs!!

Thanks WDteam!! for the release fw.

joshjoshlol 04-30-2009 05:03 PM

Yes, but "identical fw" for me, is not the "same fw"....

Maybe is the same .07 fw, but with little changs or fixed bugs, like the 23,976fps, that don't work fine, in the prerelease .07 fw.

And the bug with subs on\\off, in some playbacks.

....

No, he said "identical", that means they're totally the same. I know English is not your native language so please don't insist because other users could be misinformed.

Since WD put it on the official product page, I think the development is over. So, looks like this will be our final firmware at least for the next ~4 months or so.

joshjoshlol 04-30-2009 06:33 PM

i'm certainly hoping that this doesn't mean the stagnation of WDTV's current awesome beta program. it'd really bum me out and give me a bleak outlook on things if this is all we get for the next 1/3 of the year. i doubt that they'd go that route; look at how much customer loyalty was harvested in the weeks when they were running the prereleases on a weekly basis? the difference in attitude regarding the posts addressed to WD made almost a complete 180 since the beta program began. they'd be slipping right back into the mud if they stop now...

vanylapep 04-30-2009 06:54 PM

They can't leave the product as is with the 23hz bug..

But great job for up to this point.. thank you!

alalaka 04-30-2009 07:16 PM

how ridiculous, its exactly the same buggy 1.02.07 as the beta one, I compared the 2 version, they all have the same crc32 (FA3D7096)

MrMod 04-30-2009 09:24 PM

README file inside the WDTV_FW_1_02_07.zip file still says:

Quote:


This is a prerelease version of the firmware. Feel free to install it but be aware this is beta firmware so use it at your own risk. If you are not comfortable with this, please wait for the final version.

So this is definitely confusing.

You all at WD should be satisfied in your work, knowing that you made a little media player which is both cost-effective and better than 95% of what is out there on the market. The way you have handled user-feedback by balancing your own goals and giving people what they want is really something that more companies need to learn. It's obvious how much this community has grown because of your posts by looking at the sheer amounts of threads dedicated to this device.

The firmware is incredible, and you've worked very hard day in and day out. Kudos. I will certainly buy more WD in the future...

pch1 04-30-2009 10:53 PM

well, just download the "new" 1.02.07 over the old one and look if the WD-TV sees it as a new one, it should see new firmware when booting, right?

Paul.

jotavip 04-30-2009 10:58 PM

Allright, they made it official, and says: "Improved media playback and navigation"

But, how about the stuttering and no sound bug with 1080p files, when subtitles are on, that I and another user reported here? The problem is real, ALL 1080p movies DTS has this bug. I don't want to use 1.01.02, because subtitle is bad, and I want to use the covers.

Please, WD guys, check and fix this problem, because this is is happening. Thanks

sda_gr 04-30-2009 11:03 PM

Well.
Looks like WD has ignored all bug reports and has released it as official.
All this fuss, and all the extensive testing..............
All for nothing.

All Mr GutWD has to say is : This firmware is identical to the prereleased 1.02.07.

Bravo WD

Here we go Mr Assumption/Speculator is at it. Why do some people insist on putting words into other people's mouths? D$#[email protected]!

pack21 04-30-2009 11:22 PM

So, this is the final firmware 1.02.07 for Now!! (next for 1-3 months)


For me this fw is fine!


Thanks WDteam, GuyWD and ScottWD, for your hard worK.

It is WD's official software isn't it??
It's a fact not an assumption/speculation.

Good for you matey
A pity I can't say the same, and I have to revert to version 1.01.02

Anyway, that's life

BogdanH 05-01-2009 12:06 AM

Several days ago, I have said, WD should made new (pre-release) firmware full public available -because not every WDTV owner is visiting this forum. And making beta, or pre-release, official, is quite common practice among hardware manufacturers (motherborads BIOS-es, for example).

Speaking for me... this fw is all I "really" needed: all my MKV movies, which are within "reasonable" specifications, are playing fine.
There's on thing left, though: WD team should specify what "reasonable" specifications are! -so we can tell, if media content is "out of specifications" (if/when issues arise).

Otherwise: well done WD.

Greetings

And according to you they have ignored all bug/reports?? PFFFT
WD have actually listened to the people as much as possible. But we cant make everyone happy now can we??? Constructive criticism is good but not that approach. And how do you know there wont be another official version?

Afrsa 05-01-2009 02:52 AM

We all hope so... just because people now have 1080p players that can not play 1080p movies with subs on!!! Is kind of anoying isn't it?

I understand why WD released this firmware as official... the last official was is December... now we are going to May... they had to release something...

Now... what I ask to WD is this.... please, but please don't take another 3, 4 months to release new firmware...

Just continue with pre releases... but focus in the playback issues!!!

Thx ScottWD and GuyWD for listening and hard work!

Spookstah 05-01-2009 03:14 AM

The problem with those bugs are, they do not exist for every user.
For instance, my 1080p mkv files do play fine with subs (muxed in srt), so the bug does exist for some, while it does not for others.

The .07 version seems to work well for me, including the bold subtitle shadow, which for some look ugly, while on my full hdtv looks almost perfect.

I was really rooting for DVD menu support in the official firmware update (as in special unannounced bonus feature), too bad...

Thanks WDteam, GuyWD and ScottWD, for your hard worK.

Same here, its working fine. Im not expecting it to perform miracles. For as many file types that it supports im sure there will be some compatability bugs here and there.

genesis113 05-01-2009 04:19 AM

too bad. I thought they can improve it before official release.
Thanks WD anyway.
I hope We wouldn't have to wait months until dvd-menu and dvd-rom supports.

Laurent Garnier 05-01-2009 04:25 AM

The problem is not missing of certain user expected new features, but few major bugs not yet corrected like crash of the box with certain 1080p+DTS files or playback of MKV VC-1 files for example.
