What custom rom should I use for my WDTV live plus?
I'm mainly interested in the following:
1. smoother and more intuitive UI experience
For example:
1a I got to login to my network shares everytime, even though the login/pass are saved.
1b a startup screen that shows the last movie I was watching and lets me easily resume it
1c customizable startup screen
2. Amazon streaming support
3. More movie format support. I think I've ran into one or two movies I couldn't run. It's pretty rare though.


I have:
wdtv live plus

mounting network shares with custom firmware is easy and works perfectly.

1b a startup screen that shows the last movie I was watching and lets me easily resume it
depending on the base firmware of the custom firmware, I think maybe.

1c customizable startup screen
if you mean the background, yes, if you mean the menu structure, stop reading and go buy a different player.

2. Amazon streaming support
if it's supported by WD OEM firmware, it will be supported by custom firmware, I doubt you will find any addons for any protected content

3. More movie format support. I think I've ran into one or two movies I couldn't run. It's pretty rare though.
it plays what it plays, if WD firmware plays it, custom firmware will play it, it will not add any magic codecs or different formats.
You laugh because Iím different, I laugh because youíre all the same.
