Hey guys!

I am thinking about shutting the site down on December 31st. :'(  We have had a great run here with over 60,000 posts and almost 40,000 members. 

I don't make any money on this site and the server costs keep going up.  Its not a lot, about $200 a year but I am not sure how many people are using
this information or how relevant it is any more.

Chime in here if you have any thoughts!  :D   

WDTV LIVE with current official FW > HDMI > DVDO > Sony CRT Projector 150" 16/9 screen.  Toslink audio to Yamaha DTS receiver. No Network set up yet.

This is not unexpected, however it will be a sad day when it does go away.
I don't use my WDTV devices anymore, but the memories of using them, playing with settings, custom firmware, will always provide fond memories.

Your site, your decision ultimately.

I do come here a few times a week and try to answer questions that come in, but they are getting fewer and fewer also.
You laugh because Iím different, I laugh because youíre all the same.

I sort of expected this coming sooner or later.  I haven't been here in nearly a year and a search for New Posts yielded less than a dozen posts.

WDTV era has come and gone.  I am like RevDrew,  I don't use my WDTV anymore.  It is tucked away in the closet.  However, I built good memories while here and enjoyed my stay thoroughly.

Thanks for all you've done Jay.  I will miss this site but understand that it is time to go.

Cheers all.  I will surely be here to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.   :)
