Connection to WD TV Live totally impossible   

Postby alfiebear » Wed Mar 30, 2016 8:25 pm

Have just upgraded WD TV Live firmware to wdtvlive_1.06.43_V. from 1.05.04.
I am unable to connect to it via browser, telnet or putty in either windows or linux systems in order to configure settings etc.

Specifying the WD url (10.0.0.11 on my network) in the browser gets "404 Not Found"
Selecting WDTVLIVE2 in Network Places in windows gives browser page with a url of 10.0.0.11:52844/web and a WD TV Live Settings page with "Friendly Name: WDTVLIVE2 - Apply" box which does nothing.
Telnet and putty connection attempts receive Connection Refused response on both windows and linux.

I am able to ping the WD Live in either system and it is configured ok on the router and there were no problems updating the firmware.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

Congratulations! You've updated to the stock firmware, which doesn't have fancy things like a web interface, telnet, samba, etc... :D

Dammit you are right - I had 2 USB sticks with the two old and new firmwares on them and must have got them mixed so the old version was updated with the old version again...duh!

Sorry to have wasted time on the forum with this... :oops:
