I also noticed that the new firmware on the WD site is listed as 1.06.42 - released 1/17/2013.

Will there be a WDLXTV-Plus update for this in the near future?

If not all cool :-)

Its been a good run and the unit is due for replacement soon :-)

Loved what you and the dev's have done with the product up to this point.

If future development is planned then great but if not I wish you all the best :-)

Nobody is currently working on a port to the new base, but... Whenever somebody gets bored to death I'm sure a new release will come :)

I just installed this version over WDTV's 1.06.42_B on an older WDTV Live Plus machine I got off ebay as a gift and can confirm to anyone interested that it works fine with US Netflix - I'm watching from Canada using a DNS reverse proxy service.

:D

Nice work....

Double confirmation, currently installing right now.

For those that stumble into this and want to try it out, make sure you read the wiki

http://wiki.wdlxtv.com/README_WDLXTV_Live

You will need to edit the version file or it won't care about the firmware on usb as it will think it already has a better version installed.

If you see no further posts from me, assume it is fully functioning and better than stock.

Can anyone confirm if this firmware supports the Slingplayer app? I was using an older version of the WDLXTV-PLUS FW on a WDTV Live Plus and the streaming quality improved greatly. I'd like to upgrade to the latest version but I got a new slingplayer and would like to use the WDTV Live Plus to sling my direcTV receiver to a different tv in my house. I guess on this note, does anyone know if Slingplayer is even supported on the Plus?? Thanks.

EDIT: Nevermind. Looks like I need a WDTV Live instead of a Plus model to use Slingplayer.

In fact you need a WDTV Live Streaming, it's very confusing that WD and most sites talk about just Live recently although the mean Live Streaming.

Mirror? One option sucks when your download fails and the crappy site makes you wait an hour to try again.
