Showing 1-10 of 14
If I could give it ZERO stars, I would. This thing SUCKS! I've had FOUR of these remotes and they've all topped working!
16 February 2014
Summary: I've had 2 WD TV Live's, 1 WD TV Live+, and 1 WD TV Live Hub, and ordered one for like $25.00 (with s/h) direct from WD and these large remotes have ALL DIED at random. The only remote that still works since the day of purchase is the little remote for the TV Live+. I've swapped out the batteries.
Summary: This was purchased on January 23, 2011. It finally died 8.5 months later on October 7 after requiring restarts for the last 3 months or so. I would have hoped it would work for more than 8.5 months, but it did not. This turned out to be a pretty big waste of money.
Summary: I'm re-writing my review due to recent events. I purchased this device at the beginning of August with the intention of replacing the PC behind my TV with something smaller and simpler. Packaging was good, shipping was fast, setup was a cinch.
Summary: I bought my device 2 months ago. Since then I was enjoying it until Netflix function stopped working. I checked out WD site and realized many of the other "plus" owners are having the same issue and sad part is WD has no solution for it as of now.
Summary: I have gone through two of these in two years! First one stopped working after I did a firmware update. Researched and found out many people were having this same problem. I bought another one and it just died yesterday. For no reason. I would give it zero stars if I could have.
