I have a QNAP TS-112 and it won’t spin down when my WDTV SMP is on standby (waited a whole day). The QNAP analyzer tool shows disk writes in about every minute or so. If I’m lucky I can also see it from Windows Explorer: a directory named NAS (this is the network name of the NAS) is created in the movie folders and deleted after a moment.
I have set the media library network share update to 1 day. Is there anything else I can do to keep the WDTV from bugging the NAS constantly?
Switching the WDTV off completely allows the NAS to spin down in exchange for slow startup. I could also disallow the Media Library if need be, although I would miss the Get Content Info menu then. That could be solved by switching to ThumbGen. But I’d like to know the cause first.
