Important:

    * While most NAS drives drives that have either UPnP streaming, or appear as a SAMBA device on your network, will work with the WD TV Live HD Media Player, we have done the majority of our testing using Western Digital NAS drives. As a result we cannot guarantee compatibility with any specific third-party NAS drives.
    * The My Book World (Blue Rings) does not support UPnP Streaming so will only be accessible by the WD TV Live Media Player as a Samba Device. Additionally as the drive was not designed as a media streaming device it may have trouble streaming video or streaming to multiple sources.
    * Western Digital recommends using an "N" class router when streaming wirelessly to the WD TV Live HD Media Player. Playback of video may be unstable when using a "G" class router.

Just an FYI Belkin    F5D8053 v2 is compatible.

I bought this on ebay not realizing it was not on the compatible list.

When I first plugged it in, it saw it but it could not connect.

I attached it to my laptop downloaded new drivers, (BTW I have a Belkin N+ router v2)

Not sure if it did anything to the router or the usb stick, as there were no firmware updates.

Just for fun, plugged it back into wdtv-live and presto, works great so far.

Does anyone know how to make (or if there are any compatible) USB hub to work?  I have a 500 GB drive and a 1TB drive that i want to plug into a hub, then into the WDTV (so that as I get more drives, I can keep plugging them into the hub).

I bought a wifi dongle on ebay from ExpressBuddy in the States, delivered to my door for the grand total of 8.

It is the tiniest dongle I've seen and it works perfectly - happily streaming video from a WD Passport plugged into my desktop in one room across to my WDTV Live in the living room. ;D

Search on ebay for the seller ExpressBuddy and you should find it...

cheers.

I saw a different type of adaptor, a usb 2.0 to gigabit ethernet.
different brands, mostly unknown to me, except Belkin. http://www.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=281799 (http://www.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=281799)
would it be possible, at least in theory, that such a device could work?

MSI US300EX Lite  works fine too.

But the "Lite"-Stick-Version only does 150Mbit.

The external US300EX Version on a USB-Cable does 300Mbit (WLAN-N FullSpeed) :-)
Also does work very well on my WDTV Live.

My router which is a netgear DGN2000 Came with a wireless dongle WN111v2, however when i purchased my media box I also purchased a seperate Netgear dongle which is an EVAW111, This dongle appears to be exactly the same as the one that came with my router except its black whereas the one that came with my router is white. after trying them both out they both work perfectly.

Hi everybody!
Based on the above compatibility list, I bought a D-Link DWA-125 H/W Ver: A3, F/W Ver: 1.50.
Unfortunately it does not work on my WD TV Live HD F/W: 1.06.15_V.
As soon as I plug it, is not being recognized, the led does not blink and the player does not do anything.
Do you have any suggestion?

Thanks in advance
Max

Practical Explanation ( For Example ) :- `1st of all can you tell me every single seconds detail from that time when you born ?? ( i need every seconds detail ?? that what- what you have thought and done on every single second )

can you tell me every single detail of your `1 cheapest Minute Or your whole hour, day, week, month, year or your whole life ??

if you are not able to tell me about this life then what proof do you have that you didn't forget your past ? and that you will not forget this present life in the future ?

that is Fact that Supreme Lord Krishna exists but we posses no such intelligence to understand him.
there is also next life. and i already proved you that no scientist, no politician, no so-called intelligent man in this world is able to understand this Truth. cuz they are imagining. and you cannot imagine what is god, who is god, what is after life etc.
_______
for example :Your father existed before your birth. you cannot say that before your birth your father don,t exists.

So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy.
Otherwise, if you makes research, "Who is my father?" go on searching for life; you'll never find your father.

( now maybe...maybe you will say that i will search my father from D.N.A, or i will prove it by photo's, or many other thing's which i will get from my mother and prove it that who is my Real father.{ So you have to believe the authority. who is that authority ? she is your mother. you cannot claim of any photo's, D.N.A or many other things without authority ( or ur mother ).

if you will show D.N.A, photo's, and many other proofs from other women then your mother. then what is use of those proofs ??} )

same you have to follow real authority. "Whatever You have spoken, I accept it," Then there is no difficulty. And You are accepted by Devala, Narada, Vyasa, and You are speaking Yourself, and later on, all the acaryas have accepted. Then I'll follow.
I'll have to follow great personalities. The same reason mother says, this gentleman is my father. That's all. Finish business. Where is the necessity of making research? All authorities accept Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You accept it; then your searching after God is finished.

Why should you waste your time?
_______
all that is you need is to hear from authority ( same like mother ). and i heard this truth from authority " Srila Prabhupada " he is my spiritual master.
im not talking these all things from my own.
___________

in this world no `1 can be Peace full. this is all along Fact.

cuz we all are suffering in this world 4 Problems which are Disease, Old age, Death, and Birth after Birth.

tell me are you really happy ?? you can,t be happy if you will ignore these 4 main problem. then still you will be Forced by Nature.
___________________

if you really want to be happy then follow these 6 Things which are No illicit sex, No gambling, No drugs ( No tea & coffee ), No meat-eating ( No onion & garlic's )

5th thing is whatever you eat `1st offer it to Supreme Lord Krishna. ( if you know it what is Guru parama-para then offer them food not direct Supreme Lord Krishna )

and 6th " Main Thing " is you have to Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare ".
_______________________________
If your not able to follow these 4 things no illicit sex, no gambling, no drugs, no meat-eating then don,t worry but chanting of this holy name ( Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra ) is very-very and very important.

Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare " and be happy.

if you still don,t believe on me then chant any other name for 5 Min's and chant this holy name for 5 Min's and you will see effect. i promise you it works And chanting at least 16 rounds ( each round of 108 beads ) of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra daily.
____________
Here is no Question of Holy Books quotes, Personal Experiences, Faith or Belief. i accept that Sometimes Faith is also Blind. Here is already Practical explanation which already proved that every`1 else in this world is nothing more then Busy Foolish and totally idiot.
_________________________
Source(s):
every `1 is already Blind in this world and if you will follow another Blind then you both will fall in hole. so try to follow that person who have Spiritual Eyes who can Guide you on Actual Right Path. ( my Authority & Guide is my Spiritual Master " Srila Prabhupada " )
_____________
if you want to see Actual Purpose of human life then see this link : ( www.asitis.com {Bookmark it })
read it complete. ( i promise only readers of this book that they { he/she } will get every single answer which they want to know about why im in this material world, who im, what will happen after this life, what is best thing which will make Human Life Perfect, and what is perfection of Human Life. ) purpose of human life is not to live like animal cuz every`1 at present time doing 4 thing which are sleeping, eating, sex & fear. purpose of human life is to become freed from Birth after birth, Old Age, Disease, and Death.
