12V input / Ac Adapter


I want to use the WD TV Live Hub on my yacht.

Can I connect the 12V input jack dirst to my 12V battery bank (via fuses and switching of course) where the voltage could vary from 14.1v down to 12.5v or does the input need to be regulated to 12V?



You should be fine with an unregulated power supply, as voltage regulation is done on the motherboard of the Hub itself.

The AC power supply that they ship with is unregulated, (at least the US version is.)

I’ve used my Hub in motor vehicles several times, and they will have voltage variations of 11.5v ~ 14v quite regularly.

I’ve never had a problem.
