Not sure what device you have & what firmware it's running (2.02.32 tells me nothing...) but I'd suggest contacting WD and asking them about it.

This problem is consistent.

Switch on WDTV, go to Netflix, no sound

To resolve: Go back to home screen, go to videos, play a movie from attached USB for a second, stop, home screen, netflix, sound works.

Kinda takes away from the attraction of instant access to Netflix.

I guess as long as it has the same file name it should work.

I keep my movies in separate folders (with artwork) just for easier organization.
The WDTV will also use the first image file as a thumbnail for that folder...e.g. a movie poster...

That simple? but what if the movie isn't in a folder in the hard drive? does it have to be or can it just be in the same directory if there are loads of other movies?

Just include the SRT subtitle file in the same folder as the movie file with the same title.

Hi Guys,

This has probably been covered already many times so apologies if i'm repeating somebody else's question but this is bugging the hell out of me.

I'm no expert but i'm no novice but here its is. SO I have torrent movies stored on on my WDTV Live saved as various formats which work just fine. The problem I have is that whenever there is a part of an English movie which has foreign parts, subtitles don't kick in as they would do if I was playing a Blu-Ray or a DVD.

Whenever I download the movies I only select the movie file to be stored on my external hard disk which is then connected to my WDTV streamer. I know you probably think that I have answered my own question that I should probably include the subtitle file but if that's the case, how do I store it along with the movie file? especially if i'm changing the name of the file so that WDTV picks it up as the correct movie on the database?

Should I be storing all of the movie information including movie file & subtitle file within a folder on my hard drive? I would prefer just to click straight on the movie on my WDTV Live rather than having to click my way through folders.

Any help would be greatly appreciated  ;D

sounds like a permission issue.
try creating a folder on the external drive and sharing it, a lot of times you wont be allowed to see the root of an entire drive.

I have a WDTV WDBHG70000BK-12 player connected by WiFi to a TP-LINK AC1900 router with an attached USB3 HDD.  The box sees all computers on the network but not the HDD.  How do I access the HDD and its contents?

Thanks for any help.   John
WDTV LIVE - General Discussion / Sort files by last updated date for local USB drive
« Last post by richfei on February 10, 2016, 09:04:24 AM »
I have a WD TV Live HD player with stock firmware updated to the latest version (1.06.43_V)
I have a hard drive connected to a docking bay which is connected locally to the USB port of the player
All my movies and tv programs are stored in folders which can be read by the player
Everything is local and not network connected
I don't stream since the speeds I have at home are so slow
I want the player to recognize and sort the folders based on last modified date, but there doesn't appear to be a sort option with the stock firmware
Is there a way I can do this with any modified firmware or some other option ?
I use a Harmony remote programmed to turn on my WD media player, TV, HDMI source, and receiver as a single activity. Almost without fail, I get a "Searching for signal" and then "No Signal" displayed by the media player. Turning the player off and then on again, or unplugging and then plugging the power cable on the back of the media player results in the media player display "connecting" and then the WD main menu comes up and things are fine. Why is that and how can I fix it? Thanks for your help.
