Just wondering what everyone else does or thinks on this issue.
I keep my device on all the time – or at least I try to – just because I keep thinking that, if I do turn it off, the device will have to compile the Media Library each time I turn it back on, delaying my immediate access to the local content I have on my NAS.
I say “I try to” keep it on because I do notice that, after a week of it being on, the device turns itself off, and then I have to literally unplug it and plug it back in to get it to work again. I assume by that behavior that the device overheats from being on all the time and shuts itself down as a preventative measure.
So just to make sure I don’t have a faulty device that needs to be replace, let me ask the rest of the forum – Does anyone else experience this? Or is this something wrong with my particular device? Do any of you keep it on all the time and experience no problems, or do I have to exchange this one for one that does not have this particular “bug”? Also, does the device indeed re-compile the library each time it is turned on, or am I just incorrectly assuming it does so? And if it does re-compile each time, that does limit my immediate access to the my local content, right?
Thanks; I think I still have time to return the device to my local Best Buy and get a new one if this one does indeed have a unique problem, so if anyone can offer their opinions, I’d appreciate it.
