Is it possible to view the recorded media on a computer that is not on the network. Can you access and watch remotely. Basically my wife wants to take her laptop to work and be able to view the live hub hdd.
Yes, but your question is sorta malformed.
You can open a port on your router and port forward to the WDTVLH and also register it through s DDNS (Dynamic DNS service; they’re free). You can then use Twonky to get the media to play from your WDTVLH to your wife’s PC. Then, technically her PC is on your network.
Your ingredients again…
Google ‘port forwarding’ (pretty easy)
