I got it working as well by doing a reboot. However, I have to wait about 20-30 seconds to start playing. Now I see the channel on the bottom right away which I did not before. Also, I have 3 of them all running latest firmware 1.12.14. 2 are on GB ethernet and 1 is on a MoCa Connection. I tested these outlets before and the 2 GB run about 700mbps and the MoCa runs at about 100mbps. Right now I have the 2 GB Units watching HD Channels (617,618 without problems). When I tried one of those on the MoCa it was heavy pixilated. I am now watching SD (Channel 2) without problems on the MoCa. So all three tuners are busy streaming to 3 TV's. I really hope WD puts our a native application (like the Hauppauge App) with a better interface. Like the ability to simply change a channel by entering the channel# and other options. Very promising at this point. My goal is to get rid of most/all of my cable boxes and just use HDHomeRun CableCard Tuners. Boxes like the WDTV Live are required for this to happen.robatcgu wrote:d21mike wrote:I am unable to get this working.

I initially got the same results, but powered off WDTV and then it almost worked.
I got all the channels, and when I selected one, I eventually got the picture and sound, but periodically (5 mins?) I get pixellation, which may clear up, and sound loss that would not. Press STOP on WDTV, reselect channel, and everything works for another few minutes.
WDTV firmware 1.06.43_V on gigabit connection.

So after flashing and cold rebooting I get no sound now on any channels. This is with digital passthrough over hdmi. If I switch the wd tv live to stero sound works fine. So basically we lost ac3 support. Recordings from prime though still work fine. The sound issue is only with watching live tv.
On the upside the pause is down to around 12 sec.
UPDATE: It seems certain channels I get no sound even set to stereo. I might have to do a factory reset on the wdtv live to see if that helps.
UPDATE 2: Factory reset didn't help.

How did you connect and see channels and select? Yes, I looked through the forums.....I didn't see it listed.
Running newest firmware as of today.
Do not see in live tv (hauppage, skitter, slingbox). Only see in network shares of video and says it is not a valid share.
Running HD Homerun Prime beta 1 (011713)
