Hi there, I'm using version 0.5.0.0 and I have the usb power off setting enabled. Whenever I turn the unit off using the remote and then back on again the usb connection light comes on for a second and then it goes off and I see in the CPU listing on the webend that chkntfs -a -f is running and the drive light is flashing. It does seem to be checking the disk for errors. It only does this with my favorite toshiba 500 gig drive which doesn't have any problems in winodws. If I let the check finish the drive doesn't re-attach to the media system unless I turn the wdtv+ off and on again. So basically I have to turn the unit on, then wait, then off, then on again before I can use the drive.
Also if I unplug the drive without properly removing it the same thing will happen when I plug it back in, that happens even if I have the usb power off setting disabled.
Also it happens if I cut the power to the unit and then turn the power back on, but this time the wdtv does the disk check before it will even boot up, (so it takes forever to boot up) but when it does boot up finally this time the usb drive comes online normally.
This doesn't happen when I was using the 0.4.8.0 beta .bin version. In fact I'm back to using that version at the moment.
I don't know what the wdtv has against this particular disk drive of mine? Maybe there is something in the S.M.A.R.T. that it doesn't like but windows doesn't complain. I tried deleting the .wdtv folder on the drive so the wdtv could recreate it but that only works once.
Is the chkntfs program something that is part of wdlxtv or is it in the stock rom?
Anyway one thing that would be nice if possible would be an option in the webend that will disable chkntfs, or maybe instructions on how to do that manually. Can you delete chkntfs? I check the drive for errors using my laptop anyway.
