Connectivity options with the WD TV Live Plus are fairly robust, and should be able to connect to any television new or even older sets. However some prospective buyers with certain models of receivers might be disappointed by the lack of coaxial S/PDIF.
Western Digital TV Live Plus Feature WD Config HDMI Yes (v1.3) Component Yes Composite Yes VGA No SPDIF Yes (Optical) Stereo Yes Optical Disk Drive No USB Yes (2 x 2.0) eSATA No LAN Yes (100Mbps) Internal HDD No WiFi Supported (Not Included) Card Reader No. One of the greatest benefits of a media player like this over a HTPC (besides the initial cost) is the power consumption of the device. The WD TV Live Plus consumed 4 watts idle at the home screen, with no storage media plugged into the USB port. The maximum wattage pulled from the wall during HD video playback from a USB powered HDD was 13 watts. Even a well designed power conscious HTPC is going to pull at least 20 watts at idle, and most likely well above 50 at load. File list for mac. And those numbers go up significantly depending on the processor, chipset and graphics you decide on. For those who value low power consumption this device certainly fits the bill, consuming almost 8 times less power than an HTPC at idle and 5 times less power at load.
80 Comments • - Thursday, July 29, 2010 - I own a WD TV Live and a Popcorn Hour A-110, both are pretty good but the Popcorn Hour has played back everything fine whereas the WD TV Live has refused to play back certain media, mostly movies with dual audio tracks. I have to use MP4Muxer to delete one of the the audio tracks, after that it will play back fine. If I do upgrade/buy another media player in the future, it will probably be another Popcorn Hour, but I want to wait since I don't like their current line of players. I've read reviews on the newer Popcorn Hour A-200 and people complain of fan noise and the casing is just a piece of plastic, not metal like the older A-110 that I have, which is nice since the metal casing acts like a heat sink. I was looking forward to the Boxee Box despite its ugly form factor, but then I've read that it will only be capable of 10 Mbits/sec 1080p HD decodes. So forget the usual 20 – 30 Mbps H264 rips on the Boxee Box.
It seems like the Boxee box is just a fancy Xbmc box that may play most SD and 720p material, internet streaming channels etc, and a very limited portion of 1080p re-encodes if max bitrates are limited to 10Mbps. To bad Microsoft and Sony can't make their game consoles true media players that can handle any format, then we wouldn't need to mess around with buying a media player. • - Saturday, July 31, 2010 - The information you provide is very informative, thanks for that. However, I would remind people not to start comparing the WD TV Live to the WD TV Live Plus. My understanding is that the underlying hardware components that decode are the same, except for the added chip that allows for Netflix viewing. However, this appears to not be the case.

I've had multiple anime shows with dual (and triple)-audio (in MKV containers) play perfectly fine with this WDTV Live Plus. Also, I'm waiting for a hopeful release of B.rad's firmware which is only good for the WD TV & WD TV Live at the moment.
