      • viera link support

        it would be nice to control the WDTV via one remote control. so for a panasonic tv it would be viera link support.

            • Output stereo and digital at the same time

              Would it be possible for the WDTV to output stereo and digital (optical) at the same time so I do not have to go into the A/V settings to switch between the two?

              If not would it be possible to create an option so you can switch between stereo and digital during playback?

              A lot of my files only have a DD 5.1 audio track and it would be nice to easily choose whether to listen through the TV speakers or my amp rather than having to go into the settings.

              • stop unit from auto power up when plugged in

                i switch my wd off at the plug at night because it burns power even when in standby mode.
                but the thing i don't like is that when i plug it back in the next day, it automaticly powers up, i'd preffere it if the unit gained power and simply stayed in standby mode (like a dvd player/or hi-fi etc..)

                • An option to select a folder of jpg's as screensaver

                  It'd be cool to have your personal photos rotate randomly through in screensaver mode much like the Mac screensaver that pans, zooms and cross fades through the images.

                  • Add EXT4 filesystem support

                    NTFS, FAT and HFS+ are old filesystems. EXT4 is a good choice for every user that want a better filesystem

                    • Standby (instead of ON) when power plug is plugged in

                      Reason: Using a separate switch to power off/on all devices to save energy requires to turn WD TV off when power is turned on.

                        • Autostart / Autoloop hinzufügen

                          Somit könnte der WD TV auch für Werbung z.B. bei Messen, Werbedisplays usw. eingesetzt werden. Es könnte einfach gelöst werden, indem ein Ordner Autostart im Root der HD angelegt wird und schon werden die Files in diesem Ordner dem Alphabet nach im Loop beim Strom einschalten abgespielt.

                          • Speed up menu

                            I hate slow menu systems and the WDTV could be a lot faster browsing files, choosing options etc.

                            • WMV DRM Support for WD TV Live

                              I need my WD TV live to be able to stream DRM protected movies to my TV

                              When I rent movies online, and choose to download the WMV file (and the accompanying .smi file) to my PC I need my WD TV Live to be able to show it on my TV for the 24H rental period – this was a main reason for me to buy the unit.

                              Today I can only watch it on my PC or through hooking the PC up to the TV via HDMI – not exactly the point of buying the WD TV Live.

                                  • Read correct "display aspect ratio" out of .ISO file

                                    The correct "display aspect ratio" should be read out off the provided .IFO file when a DVD-VIDEO .ISO file or a DVD-VIDEO folder is played back.
                                    Currently, the WD TV seems to read out the aspect ratio information off the individual .VOB files, which sometimes causes a letterboxed playback with squeezed picture and wrong aspect ratio.

                                    • Support for DVD format's (iso, img, nrg)

                                      It would be nice, if Dvd formats like *.iso, *.img and *.nrg (from Nero) would be supported.

                                      Dvd's are commonly saved as image (iso, img, nrg) or ripped to a container like (mkv, avi)

                                        When you have drive with hundreds movies, it is very hard t remember which movie you already watched. WD Player should auto mark movies as watched when movie has been fully watched, or watched in i.e. 95% (usually last few minutes of movie are end subtitles, which you don't watch till end).

                                        • Fix the playback of MKV 23.976fps @ 1080p24Hz without any lag and stutter, and the 42 sec bug

                                          All my mkv`s are in 23.976 fps. When I playback at 1080p24Hz, it produces lag and stutter. My tv is samsung`s topmodel 09 plasma. With cinema smooth 24hz running on 96hz. The blu ray versions of those files running in my pioneer blu ray is smooth, without any lag or stuttter. Please fix this.
