The WD TVLive will allow you to enter in new DNS numbers. Try that first and see how it goes.

Under Settings, Network Connections, Manual setttings then enter in your new DNS numbers.

Ok, I'm at my wits end with this piece of trash.

Can anyone recommend me a decent streaming player, ~$100 that will reliably connect to Windows shares and comes with a Netflix app?

This TVLive frequently drops the network shares. Rebooting doesn't help as it only lists my NAS and not the server with the content on it. I've gone through all the troubleshooting steps including ensuring that the only computer with the computer browser service enabled is the content server and it still doesn't work.

Thanks.

"My Nexus Player cost around $100, has Netflix, runs Kodi, which is connected to my Windows 10 SMB share. "

Can you install KODI without Jailbreak or other hurdles?
What data rate can you reliably sustain on the shares without wired Ethernet?

Thanks.

WD TV Live Streaming

Great post. For those who live outside US like me, you can access Netflix, Hulu and similar media stations on your WD TV Live by using UnoTelly or similar tools.

Seems to be working OK. I did reset after update just to be safe. The youtube app is still there (Leanback I think it is called). Also, the Miracast works well too. No out of memory errors either.

WD TV Live recent update

I just turned on my WD box and was confronted with the update request. I reluctantly went ahead with the update. Two updates ago, my player became next to useless. The last update worked...sort of, but some apps would lock up and not allow me to do anything....pull the power plug and start over. That is why I said I reluctantly went ahead. In short, SUCCESS! I got back some apps that had not worked since the last update.
One problem seems to have developed. After playing one YOU TUBE video, the box re-boots itself.

No problem with youtube here. Give the reset a try. There may be older corrupt or invalid youtube settings lurking in the dark corners of the memory. ;)
