I thought I was becoming pretty tech smart (whatever that may be) what with my recent purchase of a NAS and, soon to arrive WD TV HD Media Player. However, I’ve been reading stuff posted by you guys and, I’ve just realised, I might not be able to access content from my NAS.
I decided not to purchase the Live (networked) version due to Amazon reviewing its listing of the product (in the UK anyway), and the number of negative reviews regarding issues. So, I thought I’d simply be able to connect my NAS via USB to the WD media player but…my NAS USB only allows devices to connect to it, rather than the other way round (duh, am I being blonde again?). The NAS does however have an ethernet connection, so I was thinking that I could possibly connect to the media player via an ethernet-USB adaptor. Does any firmware support this or do I have to leave all my (don’t laugh!) Sex and the City stuff on my NAS for now, never to enjopy HD splendor (unless I return it and, reluctantly, buy the Live version?).
So, can I do that somehow? NAS ethernet > Ethernet-USB converter > WD Magic box?
Thanks in advance for putting up with a potentially dumb question!
