For starters, there’s a lot about this device that appears to work well - just as it should, but…
1 - Big problems using a USB hub. I connected 5 x 2tb HDDs last night (4 in a hub connected to the back and 1 in the front) and, whilst I could see them all in ‘Folders’ the media library just kept trying to build, so I couldn’t see them in ‘All’. The light kept flashing for several hours, then I gave up.
2 - Trying again this morning. Plugged one of the HDDs into the back directly and it loaded pretty quickly. Looks great in ‘All’ gallery view. But then I unplugged it and plugged it back into the hub, and the hub into the WDTV, but with just this one HDD attached. No joy. After 20 minutes under ‘Local Storage’ is shows as ‘No Content Source Available’. In other words, the hub won’t work, even with only one HDD attached. Unplu it alland re-attach the HDD directly and its fine.
3 - Wireless connected last night on the second attempt and looked great. I was particularly impressed with the PQ. However, after switching the unit off and back on again I can’t get it to connect to my BT Home Hub anymore. Signal strength fluctuates between 2 and 3 bars out of 4 (usually 2). In short this means I can’t media scrape.
Very frustrating indeed.
