I just got my Hub, but I’ve had the WD TV and WD TV Live since they were released.
The vast majority of my media files are located on a Windows Home Server. I am not using it as a Media Server, I am just accessing the files as a regular Network Share. Within the main share there are folders for Video, Music, Photos, Software, and other stuff I have on my server. On the Hub, I have the Library turned off because I prefer my own folder structure.
There is on thing that annoys me. When I go to Videos, Music or Photos, all of them show me the same root share location because all the files are part of the same share. Ideally I’d like to be able to specify that the Content Source for Videos is SERVER/Videos and SERVER/Photos and so on. Because as it is now I have to click into the right folder each time. This is the same thing I have been doing on my old WD Live, but I was hoping to not have to with the Hub.
I know turning on the Media Library is supposed to solve this sort of issue, but I have two problems with it
From what I observed and have read, the Library doesn’t really update when files are added to Network Share locations, and I add new files often so thats a huge annoyance.
ISO software files and other random files from various folders get detected as video and are listed in the library. Since all the files are in one big share on the Windows Home Server, not sure there is a way around that.
