I too updated to 1.01.77-WDLXTV-G2-0.4.7.3 [flash] on my GEN2 device - it went v smoothly, right up to 100% no errors, but alas now my WDTV doesn't boot into the menu at all. I was previously using 1.01.77-WDLXTV-G2-0.4.5.3 quite happily with moviesheets & everything working fine (oh why did I upgrade ...if it ain't broke ..)
All I get now is the WDTV logo for a few seconds then blank, I can see that my USB stick get's read for a few seconds during the WDTV logo appears, then after about 5 seconds pause it get's read again. The WDTV icon output is both coming thru composite and HDMI. But once the logo dissappears the output signal is gone, it doesn't even output a blank screen, it doesn't output anything, the TV reports NO SIGNAL.
I've read thru the fixes, tried to flash with original firmware, held the reset button in from boot and after boot for 10, 20 ,, even 60 seconds ,,, nothing, no recovery menu or option that people are speaking of.
I haven't got a clue how to do any of the serial cable connection stuff with putty (I don't even know where the cable plugs into the box)
Please can someone explain in noob basic but also specific detail how they got theirs fixed.
Some say they put the files on a USB and booted and it worked, or pressed the reset and it worked, but could you please detail .. what file format/sector size did you set the USB stick, is there a prefered size (I use a 4GB .. is that too big ?!), exactly what files, what are they named ... also when holding the reset button, is this held in before powering on, after, during the WDTV icon ....
... help pls
