I couldn't find a solution for my problem yet - hope someone can help.
I got my WDTV Live HD player for christmas and when I first set it up it worked perfectly. Of course I knew about B-rad's custom firmware and wanted to try it. Before that I upgraded to the latest official firmware 1.06.XX. The problem started with this upgrade: MKV files wouldn't play anymore. After a while they start skipping and pausing and there's no way I could use the remote. WDTV just wouldn't react to it. Then I changed firmware to B-rad's latest release hoping this would solve my problems - but it didn't.
It's really annoying.
I've changed the video options already and set everything to "auto detect" but that didn't work either. In WDLXTV I also tried turning off several services like "Samba Server" to see if that changed anything but still same problem. I've tried older versions of B-rad's WDLXTV as well. They always got stuck at 0% and wouldn't install at all.
Please help! I don't really want to go back to an old official firmware.
