I tested it with my 2012 Samsung Smart TV and it doesnt work. I eventually found that this is due to the firmware that Western Digital (WD) ships as default has an old
version of Twonky media server which is not totally compatible.
If you buy this product beware you need to upgrade your twonky licence (which cost money) and install it using ssh.
Apart from being a computer expert WD support tells me that this invalidates the warranty.
I haven't checked any other WD mylive firmware but my guess is that they probably use similar firmware.
So well done to Western digital claiming it to be DLNA compatible which its not and also consumers
to purchase it without any indication on the packaging apart from saying "Its DLNA compatible".
WD don't seem to be to bothered about whilst they are selling these unit but perhaps Trading standards should be informed!!
Certainly does not DLNA out of the tin !!!
