Review: WD TV Live HD Media Player

 

Earlier this year I reviewed the WD TV HD Media Player. At the time I appreciated the fact that it could handle just about any video format I threw at it, but wished that it would also connect to my home network and other services. In addition, the...

Review: WD TV Live HD Media Player

 

Short Version: Western Digital's newest addition to its growing lineup of media players, the WD TV Live, essentially picks up where its older sibling (the great WD TV) left off. With the newly added networking capabilities via a built-in Ethernet port...

WDTV Live HD Media Player Review

 

Media PCs and their place in our living rooms are a controversial topic here in the office. While they can offer enormous flexibility through the use of a conventional operating system, for many they're expensive, noisy and needlessly complex,...

The unit itself is incredibly small for a device so capable - it measures 125.5 x 100 x 40mm (W x D x H) - so you should have no problem finding space for it alongside your TV. Connectivity options are excellent and cater to any setup with HDMI 1.3,...

Great device

 

I got this so I could watch videos from my computer on the tv. It is very simple to run, I like that it is use friendly. I am trying to program it with code to change the interface, which I don't care for the interface. The interface is fine for the...

great product ; easier to use than a computer ; works well with Windows 7 ; cheap alternative to having cables all over the house

Great idea, it just doesn't work!

 

If the firmware were to be upgraded to manage network access properly and to read directories within a share I would not mind the other cons seeing as it is very inexpensive device. But as it is its really just a doorstop.

It's compact, inexpensive, looks great on top of my TV and the idea behind it is great

now if it would just work! I have about 100Gb if video on my laptop and I haven't been able to play any of it after hours of troubleshooting ; This is mainly because it cannot read most of the folders in the share but I cannot for the life of me...
