Good-bye WDTV Live...

Had it for 3 years. It played pretty well anything I threw at it. Lately it had problems staying connected to my network, and then could not connect anymore. I tossed it and picked up a Chromecast device. I use that with Plex Server and stream my content from an i5 laptop I have in my computer room.

Transcoding can be cpu-intensive, so using the laptop worked out great. I don't need my CPU bogged down 80% of the time when I want to play a game.

Soldier on.
