I tried everything, hard and soft restore to factory settings, but i still have random problems. Now i got back to official 1.02.07 and everything is stable and working fine. There's something definitely weird since 0.5.2 here.  :o

I have a similar problem. When you switch back to 1.02.07, I assume you no longer have network drive access, yes?

I downgraded to 1.02.06 .05 and it still has the same problem: only play one episode and won't play the next one.

Wondering if the 1.02.07 permanently did something to the box?!

That's what i've done, and it's working ...for now.. anyhow i cannot guarantee since every box seems to have his own soul!

1. factory reset through the pin on the side of the box
2. flashed official 1.02.07
3. flashed Zorander's ext3-boot

I'll stay with ext3-boot till things around WDLXTV get clearer..

There seems to be a problem with FTP on WDTV. When I reboot the WDTV I can FTP no problem and have good speed. After prolonged use,random time,several issues occur. Sometimes the directories on attached USB HDD come up empty. Other times when transferring files it errors and I get ...
227 Entering Passive Mode (192,168,1,102,77,10)
Command:   STOR 20-Mejor decir adios.mp3
Response:   150-Fail set Direct IO
Response:   150 Accepted data connection
Error:   Connection timed out
Status:   Connecting to 192.168.1.102:21...
Status:   Connection established, waiting for welcome message...

I then have to reboot the WDTV,sometimes by telnet or if froze I have to unplug, and FTP works again. I am using 0.5.3 with only samba installed.

I have the same issue on Zorander's firmware too. The problem seems to involve both modded firmwares.
I've tested official 1.02.07 firmware and it doesn't show the same issue.

This evening i'll try another one and we will see..

Nice, Downloading 0.5.3.2....

Yesterday I flashed 0.5.3.1, after that remote controller didn't work while playing videos, and "screen saver" poped up after 5 mins while playing videos.

Will flash 0.5.3.2 tonight, hopefully everything will be fine, fingers crossed!  :)

I can confirm that with 0.5.3.2, I have the same issue:
- most remote buttons do not work when playing back AVI/MKV/ISO files (dont have any other formats to try!).
   - "back" seems to work every 5 seconds or so which lets you quit the video at least.
   - FF, Rew, Menu, select, etc. don't seem to work at all.
- the screensaver turns on during playback (so I shut the screensaver off).
- when i select a video after stopping it, it doesn't ask me if I want to resume it anymore

My setup:
- 0.5.3.2
- SAMBA/CIFS loaded
- mounts using CIFS to Windows Vista Box.

I had upgraded from 0.4.3 to this... I might revert back to 0.4.3 if I can't fast forward or rewind.  The interface looks fantastic and I can see there are a bunch of new customization options, but without being able to use the menu it's hard to watch some videos.

Thanks for all the work b-rad... I think this is going in a nice direction but there's a few bugs to squash yet before Africa!!! :)

have u tried 0.5.1? From what i remember it was working fine.. Could be a nice test too because it's the latest before 1.02.07 merge and its "official" ext support... i'd do it on my own if i had the old archive...

UPDATE: sorry i didn't remember max1641 post:

First of all: congratulations to B-RAD and the rest of developers for this. It's a great effort!

Ok, I just installed 0.5.3.2 coming from immediate previous version and I have a couple of issues:

First of all, it looks as if net.config isn't being recognized at all. The IP I get is always the same: 192.168.1.12 as if given by a mysterious DHCP server, but I have chosen 192.168.1.102 in my device root net.config. No big problem if it's always the same, but why is this happening?

===
# Network configuration file
HOST=wdtv
# attempt to set jumbo frames
MTU=9000
# DHCP=yes
# Static IP Configuration:  (only if not DHCP)
DHCP=no
IP=192.168.1.102
GW=192.168.1.1
NM=255.255.255.0
DNS1=192.168.1.1
DNS2=205.171.3.65
===

On the other hand, I am connecting via samba to a shared disk attached to a "fonera". I can connect to it but the speed is desperatingly slow. How can I measure the speed of the connection to locate the bottleneck?
I assume it's something concerning the physical medium. I connect using a USB network wireless device. To do so, I use wireless-mod-seb.app.bin module.
The device is a SMCWUSB-N and it looks as it is working fine, but how can I tell whether it is using N or not?

Any help would be appreciated. Let me know if I can be of any help. My linux knowledge is limited but I'm willing to help.

Thanks to everybody,

ferarias

Where is your net.config located? Mine is in /conf and all the settings work. I'll look into net.config from attached devices.

Unrelated question: Do you have any playback/remote issues?

Hi there,

I did a hard reset to my wdtv and flashed 0.5.3.2 just now, so far have seen the following issues:

1. Cannot see "About" page in "Config / System".
2. Remote controller doesn't work from time to time, say 50% chance. "Back" & "Home" work all the time tho.
3. Screen saver turns on while playback, so I turn it off in options.
4. Can only play one video.

Otherwise the network part works perfectly, my wdtv always gets the right IP, and NFS/CIFS shares get mounted correctly.

Anyway, thanks B-RAD for the great effort, it's a wonderful job!

Steven
