i am experiencing a couple of issues since i upgraded to 1.03.01.  first is when the unit is powered on (awakened?) via the remote, i hear the drives spin up and the lights on the WDTV unit are on but there is no OSD.  turning the unit off and back on seems to clear this problem.

second is on certain files the video stutters and freezes but the audio track seems to be fine. here is the output from MediaInfo:

i would appreciate any insight anyone might have as to why this is happening, and if i should downgrade to an earlier revision of the firmware.  as an aside, i considered installing the WDLXTV firmware but decided to wait until i have a usb ethernet adapter--  since it's based on the official firmware i didn't think it would help my situation any.  if i'm wrong on this point, please let me know.

I've had this problem for a few things I have in my media collection and have been scratching my head. Is it possible to test and confirm media for the presence of GMC? Is there an ETA on a fix at all?
