Could I ask about your experience with the smartphone app for this.

I've been using the AC Ryan PLAYON HD for the last couple of years, but thinking of switching to the WD TV. Probably the hub model. The AC Ryan has been OK, but the firmware updates are getting far and few between and they have never resolved a dodgy network problem.

After using the itune remote on my iphone. I'm pretty impressed and would like something similar for my non-apple movie streamer.

Does the app show a scrollable list of movies on the phone? This is unclear to me from the descriptions.

Cheers

Shane

the 3rd party app can display scrollable list of uPnP network media library/shares on the android tablet
It can't display scrollable list of wdtv's media library
Scrollable list of network shares displayed on the android tablet via the 3rd party app is on the to do list.

They are good units. I have an older Live (without built-in WiFi) in the bedroom, and a Live Hub in the living room. Other than the fact that the older unit has a very ugly and somewhat clunky interface, I'm happy with both of them.

WiFi works OK for streaming SD, HD can be a bit marginal. Moving them to ethernet over powerline made a noticeable difference in speed and responsiveness etc, and HD works fine.
