Utter, utter rubbish - possibly worse than that,
This review is from: WD TV Live Hub Media Center 1TB (Electronics)
I have had one of these now since Christmas and I have found it to be utter rubbish (hence the title).
It displays duplicate tracks even though when I review on the drive and check there is only one copy. This is the case even if I unplug it from the network, so it can only see locally stored content.
It takes AGES to scroll through music. I always end up turning it off and going back to Itunes on my computer because everytime I try to scroll through artist/albums etc I get a circular arrow appear on the screen for what appears to be forever.
It is constantly 'compiling the library'. I think I could actually learn and recount every track on my system quicker than this thing.
My dad has an apple tv and it runs perfectly. WIsh I hadn't wasted my money on this.
To add insult to injury I had to wait about a day and a half to transfer all my music over to find out that when it finally is all stored locally it still takes as long as a ZX spectrum to load and scroll the libaray.
I was very excited the other day as there was a firmware update which I optomistically thought would fix all my problems. Instead, following the "update" it just randomly crashes and then takes about 5 minutes to reboot, at which point my patience is thanked by the the 'compiling the library' message again.
Plus the system sporadically becomes unresponsive to the remote.
Think that is enough. Its rubbish. Avoid and tell you friends and family.
