Hey, I watch all of my content off a USB 2/3 WD 2 TB My Book. I recently ran a cat6 cable to the SMP because I was sick of dragging the HDD to my main PC whenever I had to transfer files onto it. Anyway the gigabit connection is great. As a test I streamed a 1080P file with no problems at all.
The problem I’m having is when I’m transferring a large number of files to the HDD over gigabit. For some reason the SMP and HDD lose connection. By large number, I’m talking a season or two worth of TV episodes for example. When it happens the SMP seems fine however I have to power down both the SMP and HDD to get them ‘talking’ again.
I also ensure that while doing transfers the SMP isn’t being used for anything else.
So any ideas as to why this may be happening?
