I am considering buying the WD Plus and have 2 pre sale questions:
(1)I would like to play ISO DVD image on my TV as well as photos from iphoto library. I have an imac and a Time Capsule router. If I connect the WD Plus to the Time Capsule via an ethernet cable and my TV to the WD Plus via an HDMI cable will I be able to stream this (and other) content from my Mac to my TV?
(2) Re: Audio I havea Yamaha audio sound bar system which is connected to TV through my DirectV DVR via an HDMI cable and to my DVD player via an optical cable. There are no more ports on the Yamaha (even if thee were I don’t want to be fishing wires through the wall into the closet where my hardwae is located.) Since I will be using the HDMI port on the WDtv plus for the TV, can I use an HDMI swithch to split the HDMI port thet goes into the Yamaha sound system and the other end into the Direct TV DVR (ieone port for the WD plus and one for DVR)? or can I split the optical ports so one cable goes into the yamaha and thother to the WDTV plus? Or what is the best solution for audio?
P.S. The alternative is imply to skip the Yamaha sound system and use the TV’s built in (but inferior) speaker.
