Torrent Client on WD My Book Live?

Hey guys,

 

I am looking to buy a NAS device at some point over the next few days and am finding it difficult to decide on which one..

 

I will be using it for streaming HD content to my WD TV Live HD device and also for downloading torrents..

 

I would much prefer to get this device over the My Book World but only if torrent downloads are possible ..

 

So my question is …Has anyone updated their My Book Live to download torrents?

 

Thanks!

MBL doesn't have a torrent client.

Thanks for the response to my question ..

 

After a lot of research I've found out that the Transmission feature pack will be available for the WD My Book Live from the 15th January 2011.

Indeed!

 

I've just purchased a 2TB WD My Book Live drive from eBuyer for £140 ..

 

Looking forward to getting it up and running!

 

I'll keep the thread updated as I make progress etc ..

Has your research got a weblink to this information - its very precise and its unlike WD to give any date let alone a precise date.

Those Feature Packs are sorta like Third Party Firmware.

 

They aren't coming from WD.

Well I got my My Book Live Nas drive yesterday and have succesfully set it up to download torrents using the Transmission torrent client ..

 

I was surprised how easy it was to do actually ...

 

Happy Days!

Hi Narcotix

 

Are you able to provide me with more information on how I can get transmission up and running on a MyBook Live?

 

Cheers
