thanks for your advise… …again!
I can stream to xbox from the hub with a usb drive connected to it and works perfectly (granted not a drobo). I’m running all my network via cat 5 so speed shouldnt be an issue. I would think the drobo would be accessable via network through the wd hub. afterall you can run other hubs and share data from a usb drve attached.
I have all my music on a usb drive attached to my hub and have an apple tv in another room and that works perfectly so im a little confused about the network avaliability you mention.
with regards to reliability i’m looking at a few different options i was looking at http://www.ebuyer.com/150457-d-link-dns-343-sharecenter-4-bay-no-disks-nas-enclosure-dns-343 was this the one you were referring to?
thanks again for all your help and advice
