Western Digital TV Live HD Media Player

  • Excerpt: I find this to be one of the coolest things sitting on my TV stand. I enjoy the fact that this thing allows me to enjoy my media with no issue. Western Digital has always been my favorite electronic when it comes to making your media less mobile. Sometimes …

Frustration unending

Bob Harshbarger, Amazon
1 July 2014
  • Summary: I researched the options for the least expensive way of playing my AVI movie files from the computer to the TV. Bought the WD TV Live as a replacement to my old WD Media Player without internet connection. The player I received had a number of issues - color all pink, no sound, etc.

CUMBERSOME MENU, NOT INTUITIVE

  • Summary: I'm not sure why this has some many rave reviews. I find this device very cumbersome and almost too much trouble to use. I bought it primarily to view my photos, home movies and videos. They are on a 1T WD passport ext drive and arranged neatly (or so I thought) in their own folders, i.e.

Thoughts after owning 4 WDTVs for ~11 months and no more cable

Grimloktt, Amazon
24 November 2013
  • Summary: For my '13 New Year's resolution, I decided to look at my spending habits and find ways to save money. After doing some math factoring in hardware purchase, we decided to cut our cable. We purchased FOUR wdtv lives and placed them at our 4 TVs.

Works very well, but a royal pain in the tuckus to set up.

Shane Seckler "Mr. Shane Seckler", Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: When it works, it's fabulous. It is a royal pain to set up, and I am very computer savvy. The box works just fine, and if you're buying it for Netflix and Hulu plus, you're good to go. If you're trying to get 2 win7 computers to share to it, it's quite a bit of a hassle.

We use this in conjunction with our Hard Drive to watch AVI movies on our TV

cjs, Amazon
2 October 2013
  • Summary: Works great. No more looking for a lost DVD, worrying about a DVD getting scratched. Just rip them to AVI and place on hard drive, what as many times as you like without wearing out the DVD.

WD Slingbox interface is not stable.

Daniel Colbourne, Amazon
4 July 2013
  • Summary: Bought this for the slingbox interface. Wouldn't do it again. The interface is not stable. Constantly dropping connections, when my iphone app works fine in the same location. No way a wireless connection should be more stable than hard wired.

The Media Player You've Been Looking For

Tom Berlett, Amazon
5 May 2013
  • Summary: I've tried a bunch of these things, and none of them have gotten it quite right. This is just about perfect. The Roku is good, for playing NetFlix - and just about nothing else. WDTV, plays NetFlix and a whole lot more. The Patriot Box Office has internal storage and streams media.
