Hello together, I have flashed with 1.01.77_WDLXTV.COM_WDLXTV_G2-0.4.7.3 and after reboot I see WDTV Logo and then a black screen (composite and HDMI). I can log in via ssh and I can see that the folder /tmp/.root/osd seems to be corrupt. Also under /osd. I have no chance to overwrite. ls mv cp df  etc. hangs and I only can close the putty window. Booting with another firmware on a stick seems also not possible. Is there a way to correct this (possible with serial cable)? Thank you in advance for any hint.

EDIT:
I found in another forum, that this is a known problem. I don't use the WDTV for a couple of month and then I first want to flash with the newest firmware (I better read the forum before that). And the finally solution for me was the third USB-Stick; the WDTV does not boot from the the first ones, so I can't flash back with a older firmware. But now it works again.
