I posted in the live discussion area... I always forget that I have a Plus....
And you answered my question about 3TB drives on the new release and thought I would post here for others...

.....@rgalka: There are very few new features added to this firmware compared to the last. Mostly there are bugfixes, some internal changes to make room in the firmware (migration to bi2 partition). The next version will contain WDTVExt support for 1.05-live and will hopefully be available by the end of this year (it's already in the svn)! No kernel changes - so 3TB drives should work only on the live version, as they did before, but not on plus.
EDIT: Oh, I forgot - a new feature is UMSP_LAN (needs to be enabled first) - it will let you use your UMSP plugins on other DLNA devices in your LAN (e.g. XBMC).

So now I have to ask for clarification... will WDTVext support be coming to live Plus? Will 3TB for live plus be supported on the planned 1.06 release? Are there any other LIVE features that do not and will not be available for the PLUS?

Thanks for all you support

Q: Will WDTVExt ever be available for Plus?
A: I am foolish enough to hope that yes. I will give it a try, at least. I plan on trying to understand how wdtvext hooks into DMAOSD and make the same changes (via a disassambler) and allow it to hook into the plus's DMAOSD process. Most likely one would have to change some function entry points.
Now, will it be stable/useful? I have no idea. The one for live is fairly stable, but there are some bugs... We'll see... And also, try to do the same thing for 1.06 as well...

Q: Will 3TB support be available for 1.06?
A: Again, I don't know - I plan on porting wdlxtv to 1.06 (live and plus), but I don't know what to do about the kernel. With brave testers, we can test and see what happens with the official 1.06 kernel, and what happens when you run with 1.05 kernel. But - does the stock 1.06 support 3TB drives?

Q: Are there any features that are LIVE only?
A: Hopefuly not. I try to merge all changes from live to plus as well, but it's possible that some things will simply not work due to too many differences.

If I have a new wd tv live plus with stock firmware, do I need to worry about my netflix keys being deleted with this firmware ? or have those issues been fixed ?

Flashing should be safe. I haven't had any complaints about netflix keys. And should anything go wrong you can revert back to stock

Edit.. It booted up! It just took a really long time. :) Can anyone show me what I can do with this neat firmware? I just started digging into this, and I will get a ethernet cable to connect it to my router soon.

Hello I was on original firmware of 1.06.16B and I did the update to this 1.05.04B and when it finished and rebooted, I see nothing but the black screen! I tried removing the usb and just plug in the media device itself and I still have black screen. Can anyone help me with this?

Start with the wiki for features: http://wiki.wdlxtv.com/Main_Page

Look through the webend, look through the app.bins (addon manager) or through the UMSP plugins and see what you like.
