I have a problem with my wd tv gen1 as it is not playing some new files that i download (getting unsupported file message). I did a spec check and the two files seem identical but one of them will play ant the over will not, so not sure where's the problem. Both files play on computer with VLC. tried reseting the unit a few times, didn't help. btw, wasn't able to downgrade firmware either, even if i change wdtv.ver to higher number, the system doesn't see new firware. I have 1.03.01 firware.
