Thanks for this great firmware!!!

Just searched a few day until i found it....it is not easy to find actual images......looked at the wiki, but there is NOTHING new to find...all links only go here:
http://forum.wdlxtv.com/viewforum.php?f=10&start=0
after a few long nights of searching and reading the forums i stumbled over this thread and - voila!!!

would be great for noobs to post the new firmwares on the wiki i think.......or is there a reason why no one does it?

sorry if i ask a stupid question!

To all devs: keep on tuning our wdtv!!! :)

Why has 0.5.1.1 not been added to the Firmware Releases forum?
Is 0.5.x.x still considered a WDLXTV beta firmware?

5.1.1 is a safe stable release, but is still going through some changes, infact 5.1.4 is available in the beta forum, and there's talk of making it an official release soon

I just installed 0.5.1.1. on my Live Plus.
It is working very well with none of the problems I had with 0.5.0.0., which I described earlier in the thread (wdtvlive2.bi2 wasn't installing).
The only difference I noticed during the install was it didn't hang at 0%.

Thanks B-Rad, KAD, recliq and everyone else involved. RMerlin, the WEC improvements are great.

I have low vision. The ability to use larger thumbnails and net.mounts makes WDLXTV a huge improvement over the OEM firmware for me. I am looking forward to future developments.

Interim 0.5.1.1 Firmware Links   

Postby Sir Ranger » Wed Sep 28, 2011 1:37 pm

.
.

0.5.1.1 (Link 1)

0.5.1.1 (Link 2)


The links are a bit slow, but they do work as of today (Sep/28/2011)
I'm hoping this post might help any searches find the links a little easier.

Forum Moderators:
I'm thinking it might be useful to maybe have another topic/thread in the "Firmware Releases" section (locked) (or elsewhere) for interim releases. I'm sure it would be appreciated by newer users like myself to have a spot to stop by to see if there might be any interim releases that might fix irritating bugs or issues instead of having to search around in hopes of maybe getting lucky. But then again,,, I'm not sure how often interim released are made available so it might not be worth the effort?

The 0.5.x.x releases have largely relied on users already familiar with WDLXTV, so that they could clearly identify what small bits didn't work after the colossal transformation from 0.4.x.x to 0.5.x.x. Brand new users getting confused because some random small bits don't work exactly correct just make it harder to nail things down if they had nothing to base on. The issues seem to have stopped showing up in the latest beta so most likely it will be 'the one'.

What hardware are you using?
On the Live Plus 1.05.04 supports 3.0 TB but WDLXTV 0.5.1.1 does not.
Anything up to 2.0 TB should be fine.

Did you have your 1.5 TB running with older versions of WDLXTV?
