Hi all,

I broke into a sweat the other day as I thought I'd blown my speakers.
Seems it wasn't them, nor the amp but the WDTV that was creating the problem.

And that problem is a horrible distorted audio playback. Noticeable on a lot of avi's but on EVERY mp3 file.
It started when I took the box away on holiday. I didn't have access to digital video out so had to hard reset the box to be able to see the menu system in analogue.

When I got home, I put the latest firmware back on (1.03.01 from memory), plus Laurent G files and the usual other meaningless files like background png. That's when I fired it all back up, set my menu how I like and popped on some music and...thought I'd blown my speakers.

SO, I downloaded an old firmware package, renamed it to trick the WDTV into thinking it was a new release in order to roll back to what I previously had...but the problem remains. A-HA! I forgot to add in B-Rad's WDTVlx files.

Sadly, the problem persists.

I've googled about and it seems the problem is also evident with the WDTV Live. However, a solution evades me.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? Because I'm at the point now where I'm about to bin the box. :(
