I don’t know if anyone is using this product, if so maybe you can help me.
I bought a unit from Western Digital called WD TV HD. It is suppose to read any usb hard drive and play hd video onto an hd monitor.
I am using Final Cut Pro 6.0.6, i imported 2 hd files that i shot on my canon vixia hfs100 (they came in as 29.97 1920×1080 appleProRes422)
when i export the 20 sec clip as an .mov using the h.264 codec with 48khz aac audio, with 30fps at 1920X1080 (as the site suggests), it plays back in a studdered way.
I have tried to export right from FCP as a quicktime and then using ffmpeg, i have tried exporting as a quicktime conversion and i tried to export from compressor.
Western Digital has software that converts any video to the desired codec but it is only for Windows. I have posted this question on the WD site and even asked a tech support guy but came up short.
Anyone have any experience with this unit?

I have this unit and HD always studders using memory stick. It plays fine off a hard drive. It obviously can read the data much faster
What would I do without the ‘UNDO’ button!!!!

I am playing it off a 500gb Western Digital hard drive.
What spec’s do you use? What do you use to compress your video to the players qualifications?
