Dreambox streaming and internal HDD question

Hello to Community.

Recently purchased WD Live hub (Gen3) and I have several questions:

  1. is it possible to stream from satelite receiver (example Dreambox) via WD Live on my TV?

I have TV with Dreambox in another part of house so I want to “stream” on 2nd TV in my living room.

  1. Internal 1TB HDD never goes to “sleep” / standby. Noisy fan as well. Is it possible to make “default” stanby or the only solution is to press power button for 3sec to shut it down completely?

Thank you in advance!

  1. No.

  2. Full shutdown is the only option if you want the drive to spin down.

On my hub the drive spins down when in normal standby and is woken by a network request, the fan stays on constantly. You need to do a long press on the standby button to switch off the fan and ensure the drive stays off.

OK, thank you both.

Ah. I hadn’t considered that, but then, I rarely shut my Hub down. It’s just another drive on my network as I access files with other devices.
