WDTV Live Gen3 - Some Hardware Infos & Tips

Hi everybody,

I was frustrated since ever about the bad response my box had with the remote-control (responded only by aiming within 10 degree angle). So I decided to open it.


Here is what's good to know:

- There's an usual lithium button cell inside - good to know if in a few years the first boxes begin loosing settings.


- The ir-reciever component was bent all way down to the front, bending it straight up solved this issue completely!


- As it was opened anyway and I coudn't trust my eyes I decided to give the sigma cpu a heatsink.

Layout:


Heatsink (40x40mm):


As far you could see following i'm afraid to say that the manufacturer did plan obsolescence.
The cpu produces a lot of heat - pictures are saying more (all temps WITH heatsink).
Opened, playing hd content:


Closed cover, playing hd content:


Closed cover, playing flac:


I didn't catch the temps without heatsink, but there's no way around that the box will die after a few years. (like most electronics do due overheating)
They do know about the heat, look at the stiffening ribs (underneath is sitting the sigma) to prevent deformation of the cover in cause of heat radiation:


- If somebody is having trouble getting a good WLAN signal - the realtek module ist placed separately upright next to the mainboard (first picture on the left)
and looks like any laptop-module, but soldered connection via usb-cable. So get some antennas and plug it into the 2 available sockets (should be IPEX).



That's it!

Same here, directupload.net gets reversed on your own public IP address. Won't work for obvious reasons :lol:

Thank you for your pictures, Sam_81.

Could you please tell us: HOW did you open the case exactly?

With "bending it straight up" you mean 90° to the bottom of the case, right?
