So, here is what I am looking to do. I have a TV in the basement that i want to connect the WD HD to via USB. BUT, in order to get the movie/photos to that HD i want to be able to copy over the network to that HD. This way i never have to disconnect the HD from the TV to get new content. I don’t want to stream movies as some are HUGE! (13gb for a 3d movie).
Even cooler if I can do this remotely… for example, I am at my parents house and they have photos on their pc. rather than having to bring some media with me, I can access the HD that is on my network and copy the files. I think this can be attacked in different ways, so i don’t necessarily need that part to be inherent to the device. I think once i have it on the network i can add the device IP address tot the DMZ and access it via internet that way.
So, knowing all that… is the WD HD the right product for my needs?
