I have a few questions regarding the WD TV Live Hub before I go out and buy it, and it seems to me asking them here, with all you guys already having one is a good place to start, and I’m hoping a few of you will share your knowledge with me.
The problems I have now and the reasons I’m considering getting the WD TV Live Hub is that I’m having issues with mkv files that I’m streaming via cable from my PC to my PS3.
It’s slow, it doesn’t always work (getting the message the file is corrupt, yet it works perfectly on my pc), and I can’t fast forward or rewind in the files very well - So I’m hoping the WD TV Live hub fares better with these tasks…
Also have a network drive/media player that’s also used in conjunction with the PS3 but the problem there is that the drive seems to get thrown off the network at times, resulting in getting disconnected in the middle of a movie or show, sometimes several times which is obviously very frustrating… again I’m guessing that won’t work with the WD as it’s directly connected to the TV.
Also does one have to be an advanced pc user to get into this thing? Or is it fairly simple to use, get to know and operate? I’m also thinking about troubleshooting here, how hard it is to solve issues with it.
I hope some of you will be so kind as to share your experiences with me with the hub and if there are any general issues I should be aware of before buying.
Any other advice or known issues? I read somewhere that indexing on the WD is really slow, is this true? Or have they fixed it?
Feel free to share, I’m sure others who are contemplating buying it will have benefit from this as well.
Thank you I really appreciate it!
