    Morning,
    A simple post I hope...
    I was about to click buy on a Western digital tv live streaming. but a box popped up saying it was not the lastest version. the lastest is a WD-TV digital av player. but I can not see the difference.

    the product codes are different however (slightly)
    The WD-TV digital av player WDBGXT0000NBK-EESN
    Western digital tv live streaming WDBGXT0000NBK-UESN

    Can any of you wise and wonderful people tell me what is the difference that warrents an extra £14.00?

    I am not a techie, I am after something simple but with a wide range of apps inc iplayer, net flicks, Love film etc, playing my stored media through my NAS. I beleive I am on the right lines with the wd live but please correct me if I am wrong..

    Cheers

    WDBGXT0000NBK-UESN is the latest version, I purchased it myself only last week. I would suggest looking at the model numbers you have listed that they are the same only different region (maybe a US box)??

    The previous gen WDTV did not have wifi and both that you have listed do. I would suggest going for the WDBGXT0000NBK-UESN

    WDBGXT0000NBK-EESN does not appear to have USB 3.0 according to the Amazon page.

    Get the latest WD TV Streaming Media Player (£70). I've had the previous version and the newer model has slightly better picture quality, a much better scaler (for zooming in or upscaling), has wireless built in and recognises and outputs DolbyTrueHD over HDMI.
