Great little device,
This review is from: Western Digital TV Live HD Media Player (Personal Computers)I have just bought this WD TV LIVE off Amazon and I have given it a good try out.
I am pleased to report that it does everything it claims it does.
I have thrown many videos in many different formats at it and it has played them all.
It handles the subtitles properly.
The set up was easy and quick.
It installed a firmware updated automatically.
I have connected it to my network via an ethernet cable and streaming a movie from my NAS through the TV LIVE works very well indeed.
All internet services such as youtube work well except pandora for which a US IP address is required.
The Accuweather service is good although you cannot store a list of favourite locations. You can only keep one location. If you need more, you'll have to type them in each time.
The device is really tiny and will therefore fit anywhere.
I have connected it to my TV via HDMI. You can also use a component cable or a composite cable.
By the way, it plays HD movies with DTS sound if you choose the "stereo" option which is not too bad. I know of other players which will simply have no sound in DTS movies.
In conclusion, it's a great device and you will be pleased with it. I can only assume that other reviewers who were not happy with their unit have a faulty one.
