And even if the HD is unmounted before putting the device into standby, the WD isn’t mounting it after waking it up. I have to unplug and plug it back into the hub. Ridiculous.
No, that is, of course, the way it should be. Standby isn’t the same as OFF. You’re only expected to use EJECT when you’re REMOVING the drive, or shutting the SMP off. If you don’t remove it, it’s going to sit there indefinitely waiting for you to remove it.
I don’t want to remove the HD everytime I put the WDTV into standby. I want the files to be available after waking up, which is the reason I keep the drive connected to it. You know, the “It just works”-way.
If the device isn’t properly unmounting the USB-volumes before going into standby, what the heck is it doing for those five(!) seconds between me pressing the standby-button on the remote and the WDTV going into standby?!
I know that the original WDTV never worked with USB-hubs (except with modified firmwares), which I accepted, as it was the first device made by WD. But considering the SMP being the third generation now, it’s just embarassing that these problems still exist.
