Pretty sure that I’ll get my answers here so here it goes.
Got an HDTV at the basement with 360 and PS3 that stream over the air movies for my daughter. Those files are on my computer.
I want my consoles back ! *har har* Seriously, I would like if she could listen her movies on our SDTV at the first floor (she don’t mind HD or not yet, she’s only 3 years old).
At first, I thought that I would buy a WD TV, put a wifi usb key in it and in my basement, plug a network drive directly on my router. That way, my wife could load movies from the network drive when I’m at the office and keep my computer closed.
Here’s my questions;
I’m not sure about the wifi. I never had problem on the basement but since WDTV isn’t wifi built-in, I fear that the connection won’t be enough to stream media. I don’t want to stream 1080 anyway since it’s an old tv so files won’t be that big.
I got a DVD player with an USB port but it hangs after a while when reading movies. I don’t want to buy something else to get the same result.
I got a Passport drive as well that I could plug directly on the WDTV but it’s isn’t as cool since I have to move files all the time and I need that Passport drive for the Wii (don’t ask why ;)).
