Hey guys, any help that could be offered here would be greatly appreciated!
I just upgraded my old WD TV Live to the newer model with WIFI so I could use internet services on my plasma TV. I have noticed that unlike the older model, even when the media player is turned off, the attached portable hard drive that I keep my movies on (WD elements 500gb), is left powered on and running. On the older unit, when the media player was off, so were any attached drives.
This concerns me as it cannot possibly be good for the hard drive to be left running 24/7, even when not in use. Surely this will only lead to the hard drive burning out that much quicker.
Is my new media player faulty or is it meant to do this?
Thanks for your help.
