I have a QNAP TS-212 and a WDTV Live media extender, connected via a wired network through a Thomson Speedtouch 580.

Photos of certain shapes (eg 4:3) on TV were shown in low resolution; and later other picture ratios also rendered in low resolution.

Recently, a further fault: music files are played for a few seconds then re-started from the beginning, and not played right to the end.

Video is ok at the moment (but watch this space...?)

I seek an Auckland IT technician for hire, who has good previous experience in these things. Not a geek myself wink, so if you know for sure how to fix this I will value your advice, copy it for future use, but will be unlikely to try using it myself.   ... thanks

Not a good idea to post your number publicly.
Mod will edit out soon.
I can give a hand, PM me and see if i can assist. Got a fair idea with that setup.
