Looking to purchase the 3TB My book for my 2 networked WD TV Live Plus players I have in my home.
How is this drive in simultaneously access the drive from 2 WD TV Live plus players at the same time. Any experiences from the community would be greatly appreciated.
I would not be accessing the same file. Also the network is a gigabit network.
I have a couple of MyBook Live 1tb drives and one 2tb MyBook connected via a Gigabit switch, although my actual WD TV boxes are only connected to a 100 megabit switch.
I have no problems (so far!) streaming large (>1gb mkv’s mostly) files simultaneously. In fact I’ve had 2 WD TVs streaming video, plus a PC playing a video from the device at the same time as I’ve been copying large files over to the same drive and everything kept running smoothly.
In fact, I pulled the network cable on one of the WD TV boxes whilst it was playing and it kept playing for almost a minute before finally freezing, so it had cached a fair amount of data.
