...interesting device...you'd have to hide your pron pix though! Imagine showing your mom the latest holiday pix and your 'special collection' came up in thumbnails!!!!

...not that it's relevant to me of course...ahem!

Is it mkv compatible?
#3
Yes works on MKV.

Only thing I think it's missing is Iplayer, 4OD etc

My Sony blu-ray can do most of what this can do and has the Iplayer, so all I would use it for is wireless video streaming. Can't really justify £80 just for that, but it is a good deal if you have not got anything else to provide its other features.
#5
I have one of these, it is a very good streamer and will play most formats. It even passes dts-hd and truehd to my amp without issue. They seem to update the firmware quite often as well which is a good indication of the support WD give these devices.
I paid around the same for it from Amazon.

great player, decent price... still holding out for one that has a freeview hd reciever built in :)

Is that the S370?

Does it support NTFS formatted external drives and 4gb+ files? I know it supports MKV files but dunno what you need to hook it up to to play them?

Nifty if it does!

I'm still using an older model WD HDTV box and they're great little things. Has played pretty much every HD file I've tried it with ..... right up to a 40gb x264 1080p rip. Can't argue with that!

And wireless video streaming? No thanks - especially HD stuff! Wired every time please ..... much more stable.

I had two of these go faulty - I settled on the xStreamer instead, which has been reliable and plays everything I chuck at it.

I've got 4 of these attached to various TVs around the house- all networked via home plugs to a Nas Drive. - all my DVDs on the Nas (DVDs cluttering up the attic now not the bedrooms) and the TVs become virtual DVD jukeboxes - works seamlessly - brilliant little boxes.
#17
I'm umming and aahing on getting this or a revo. The number of times i actually would use it to access internet is pretty small - but like the flexibility of a pc and ability to control codec etc

Yeah I am in the same sort of boat - I will be in the market for a HD PVR very soon but if somebody (AC Ryan seem most likey) could produce a dual tuner dvb-t2 and media streamer in the same box it would sell a fortune ...
#21
Do I plug this into tv, how do I use it for wifi as kids wanna play cbeebies n we got leads everywhere from the laptop to tv-can u tell me if it can do this, how I would do it don't understand this device cheers lisa
#22
As a note there is an iPhone app for controlling the WD Live, although atm it doesnt seem to recognise Hard Drives attached to the WD live (I assume only NAS drives) so its a bit worthless to most people using this, good to keep an eye on tho

Hi Lisa,

You plug this into a TV but it doesn't stream live TV channels, only content stored on an attached USB drive or over your network from drives on a PC. It works with WiFi dongles.

To anyone else thinking about buying one, If you have digital media stored on a PC and you've watched then through PC, or maybe xbox, get one of these, they are the handiest things ever, one of the best gadgets i've ever bought.

It can also be updated to show youtube HD, apple trailers and more. It's just great

would you recommend it over something like a revo?
did you update it with the b-rad firmware - if so how hard was it to do?
#26
Thanks gjgbarclay.........sounds good but not what I'm after :)
#27

I've got one of these boxed up that I never use, might dig it out or put it in FS/FT

Does it come with a wireless enabled dongle to plug into the pc?

Isn't dongle a great word.

Got one of these, amazon prices fluctuate between £60-80, got mine for £67 a few weeks back. Plays everything!

Does this device support HD audio DTSMA & Dolby True HD from a MKV to a Cinema amp over HDMI ?


It does from a blu-ray ISO but i'm not sure if it does it from MKVs
#32
These are great!
alternative solution if you have a PS3 connected to your HD TV

download ORB to your PC and use homeplugs to connect PS3 to your PC

PS3 will play all your media via ORB, Its really simple and free!!

check it out on tinternet http://www.orb.com

I had two of these go faulty - I settled on the xStreamer instead, which has been reliable and plays everything I chuck at it.

These Live versions came out in Sept 2009, so if you had two of them go faulty I find it hard to believe that at least one of them still isn't under warranty.
#34
How does this compare to a Apple TV2 running XBMC?
#35
i read that all new blu ray players MUST have that cinavia built in by law , so id keep your old players
#36
so its not just a sony thing , but they did sneak it on to the ps3 in an update

I have muxed together the video and dtsma audio from blurays to an mkv but it only passes the standard dts stream. You need to use blueray images or the m2ts file types to get dtsma or truehd passed through...

Hi Vik,

Yeah updated to B-Rads software. Done it a few times now as he releases an upgrade every 3 months or so. It was really easy. Download a zip file. Copy 4 files onto USB stick. Stick it into box, unplug box and plug back in and it detects a firmware upgrade and immediately gives you an option to install new firmware in menu. Choose 'install' and it does it all in under 3 minutes usually.

Immediately apple trailers and youtube HD 'out the box', a few changes in the webend interface and you can add Filmtrailers and Grooveshark. Then using thumbgen and a few templates you can get sexy moviesheets that make it look sweet.

USB Dongle - It doesn't come with one but is compatible with several.

I've never used any other media streamer (rivo/apple TV/etc) so cant comment on those, but this is excellent, £80 is a steal even without the code.
