I have several 2tb WD Essentials external HDDs.
If I connect any one to my new WDTV Live Streaming Media Player they work fine. If I connect more than one via my powered USB Hub I get nothing. Indeed, the player locks up. ‘Video’ is highlighted at the bottom, but I can’t get that to move left or right. Even the ‘Off’ button doesn’t work unless I press and hold for c.5 seconds.
The light on the front of the WDTV flashes as if it’s building a library, but the ‘Compiling…’ message doesn’t appear at the top of the screen as it normally does. Also, the lights on the back of the HDDs are on solid, rather than flashing when in use/being searched/loaded.
I know others have got USB Hubs working. What am I doing wrong? Any tips?
My USB Hub is this one:
Any help would be very welcome.
