Recommendations

A list of short recommendations to make it a better experience of using this driver.
⦁ Use Ethernet cable for connection. Wi-fi can create problems of communication between Control4 and WD (set static IP always);
⦁ Assign shortcuts to the numbers of remote control (check following topics in this manual)
⦁ Do not power off the WD to control ON/OFF using a relay for instance. When WD starts from cold boot, it takes longer to start up. Tell the user to use the default red button to start it up (you can change it if you want).
Limitations

This driver has the following limitations:
⦁ No power discrete codes. WD TV Live don’t have discrete ON and OFF codes. This issue makes difficult for Control4 to understand when the device is ON or OFF. To power on or power off the device this driver is configured to use the RED BUTTON. The user must turn on/off manually. You can change to another button by changing the properties of the driver.
⦁ Models supported: WD TV Live and WD TV Play.
