Hi all

I'm experiencing a problem on my WDTV Live Gen3, I believe it's since I updated to v1.13.18 but I'm not sure.

It started off with a slight flicker now and again and white lines streaking across the screen, but now it's got worst and it will barely show anything at all, sometimes I get a green and purple screen and sometimes I get nothing but a black screen.

It's linked via HDMI, and I've tried all 3 inputs on the TV but still get the same effect.

My Tivo box works fine through the same TV and inputs, and my WDTV gen1 also works fine again with the same HDMI leads and inputs.

The strange thing is I have no issues using the same WDTV Live gen3 on my 720p Samsung TV in my bedroom.

Now I've rolled back the firmware to v1.12.14 but still get the issue.

I've attached a picture of the screen at it's best on my 1080p set lol

I've tried setting the gen3 to a 720p setting before linking it to my 1080p set but still the same thing.

The TV is a Panasonic - TX-P42S10B , it it helps.

I'm a bit lost with it so any help would be appreciated before I ring customer services lol
