NAS Directly to the Media Player via Crossover Ethernet?

Hey guys!

I’m considering buying this along with an NAS hard drive.  My home isn’t hard wired for Ethernet so I’m extremely happy that this player has built-in WiFi.  I’m planning to move in a couple of years, though, and expect my new place to be wired for Ethernet.  I need to get a hard drive to store my media and make accessible by this player.  I’m looking into NAS (much more convenient for once I move…) and was wondering if I could just use a crossover to directly connect it to the player itself.  Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?


you may as well just get a large external USB drive.  no point getting a NAS if your not going to have it on a network.
