Summary: It's been just over a year since I bought this product. Now when I am watching youtube it distorts the picture and sound. It throws message as file not supported! Once you restart it, it works for another 5 minutes. I'd not recommend anybody to buy this.
Summary: I've had this for about a year and a half. It has never worked well with my network. My home network is not that complicated, I have a PC and a router and my WD is connected through an Ethernet cable to my router. Some days the WD can find my network but most days it cant. I have a Boxee Box and it never fails. This is a good player for plugging a memory stick into the side and thats it.
Summary: Just got my 1080p in the mail. Quick delievery, good service. OK, plugged it in, got instructions and read. Power came on, could see a pix floating across tv screen. Turned off, now, won't power up, NO lights at all........ Unpluggged for 10 mins, then plugged back in...still nothing. I have a feel I'm stuck another WD piece of no working equipment. Stay away from this one.
Summary: Do not expect consistent behavior from this device. My wife questions how anyone without IT expertise could possibly get this thing to work. I'm an IT guy by trade. I have a D-Link 321 NAS that I have attempted to to stream videos from. 720p and lower work OK over my wireless N network... sometimes. If you just want to watch Netflix, it may work; I haven't tried.

Summary: It is the second time I have tried to order A WD tv Live PLUS hd media Player. It is supposed to be able to connect with your Netflix account, but when I received it (For the second time; granted the first time was NOT with this group) What I received was a WD tv live HD Media Player. This version is not able to connect with Netflix or any other medias like netflix.
Summary: I have the WD TV Live Plus, with the latest firmware. The HDMI goes to a small monitor, and the optical link goes to my receiver, and I use a 2TB USB Hard Drive. Seems like most of the reviewers here use the player for video playback. I wanted it strictly for audio. I have digitized over 300 of my CD's (FLAC format) so that I can play them back through my stereo with this device.
