Can I use my wdtv AC Adapter with wd tv live hub?

will it work? its the same voltage, but different wats, and amps, wondering if it will cause damage.


It will probably not work as the WDTV Live HUB needs more power to run the Internal HDD and the processing board draws constant power.

I would not attempt that to be on the safer side

Hope this helps

Best wishes

If it’s identical voltage and higher wattage, then you’d be fine; if it’s identical voltage and lower wattage, then you’ll probably kill it drawing too much power from it, and/or damage the hub by underpowering it.

The hub has a 1.5 amp adaptor and the live has a 1 amp. I doubt if WD would have gone to the trouble and expense of supplying a more powerful adaptor if it were not needed.
