I am planning on purchasing the TV Live Hub (TVLH) this week and have a few questions regarding the use of an NAS. My collection of movies and TV shows are stored on two Synology DS211J NAS devices. Each device contains two 2TB hard drives in a RAID 1 configuration. I don’t have any concerns regarding the TVLH’s ability to play the video files; my main concern is in regards to how the TVLH will access/list/report these videos and their associated content information.
I’ve already acquired the content (XML + JPG) files using ‘WDTVHubGen’ for the Movies and ‘thetvdb.com XLM Converter’ for the TV shows. These files currently reside in the same folders as the video files on the NAS.
Question-1: Will the TVLH automatically recognize these files and display the artwork and content information correctly or do the files need to be copied to a specific folder on the Internal HD?
Question-2: Are there any limitations to how videos are accessed or displayed if they reside on an external NAS Vs. the Internal HD?
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
