I would like to access my external hard drive by connecting it to my rourter though the USB port. When do this I am able to see and access the hard drive on my imac & PC,s which sits on my network but not the Live Hub. Can any one think why this could be.

Try connecting the USB hard drive to the Mac or Windows computer and share it from there.

I am not sure how this setup works, but I am assuming the harddrive gets assigned and IP address like it is a computer connected to the router? If so, how do your machines resolve the netbios name of the drive? I guess I am asking when the drive is on your router, and you access it from your PC, does it appear as another computer?
That said, how do you make a share point on the drive that way? When you connect via network share the hub asks you if it is Windows or Linux, and the remote drive has to be announcing that it is available, and then that it has share points to connect to.
Sorry no answer, just more questions, but it is an interesting setup.

Try to access the hard drive while connected to the PC, that way you can verify if you have a compatibility problem with the WD TV and the router.
