WDTV Live - Anyone using a hacked firmware?

I see someone has hacked it to be able to run usenet! Anyone done it and is it worth doing?

I haven't but will look it up soon as I have just recently got a WDTV live. I have an original popcorn hour which can do usenet but it is so slow to par check and unrar that I don't bother. I would guess that the WD would be slow to unrar too so maybe not worth doing if you are in a hurry for something.

This is weird - for some reason my WDTV has started to output in mono over HDMI to my TV. I thought it was the encoding in the particular set of files that I was watching, but I've since tried various others and they are all the same - ones i know for sure I've enjoyed in stereo.

I've tried the (limited) options in audio setup, but that doesn't seem to make a difference, and I'm running the latest official firmware.

I use the optical out into my 5.1 amp and that seems fine (for both stereo & 5.1).

I've googled, and it doesn't seem to be a particular issue, so before I start swapping cables and pulling my hairs out, anyone any ideas ?

First thing I'd do is try a different cable
