4.5 Good Player with custom firmware Sc0oter | 13/01/2011 | See all Sc0oter's reviews (7) I have had this player for a few months now. The player with the official firmware is awfull. It has out of sync issues with mkv/avi files as well as slow loading from drives over 500GB. After looking at and loading custom firmware it now loads my 1 TB drive with my entire DVD collection on it (all converted to MKV with DTS sound) in under 4 seconds (the official firmware took 28 to find and display the drive). The customs also fix the OOS bug and fast forwarding/rewinding is now not a problem. It also supports USB wifi dongles meaning you can now link it to a network for streaming. This is done because the firmware used for the custom is actually a mod of the WDTV LIVE firmware as the official firmware for this model is now discontinued and will no longer be updated.So if you are going to buy this but are to scared to use custom then its great but dont expect MKV/AVI files to play without issue as somewhere along the line you will get OOS errors and there is no official fix ever being released.
