Cant connect to WD TV Live HD   

Postby otakuphill » Mon Dec 14, 2015 1:21 pm

I got a WD TV Live HD and connected via Ethernet to my router.
I don't have the remote and trying to connect via my phone or computer.

The WD remote app cant find the device on my network.

When i boot up i see WDLXTV after the WD sign which makes me believe the previous owner installed it.

Any ways of resetting or accessing the device via computer or app?

Possibly how to put old firmware or new firmware on it?

Welcome to the forum. Most likely the WD Remote app can't see it because it isn't running firmware 1.06. You can check which WDLXTV version it runs by going into the webend (http://your-wdtv-ip/). The default user/password is wdlxtv/wdlxtv.
You can use this app as a remote control:, or use the web interface remote.

If the password doesn't work, you can reset it to defaults, by installing this app:

Before you change firmware, see our wiki ( to find out what you can do with the custom firmware - maybe you'll want some of its features. Otherwise you can always flash a regular firmware to the device by following the official flashing guide.
