I recently gave up on the unit and removed the HDD and installed it on a NAS, since I was fed up with the enormous transfer speed. Mind you, I only paid it 99$ so I really don’t mind having a hub without the HDD.
Anyway, the unit works fine and I can access the content easily like before and everything is smooth but I haven’t tried theming. Is it possible without an HDD? My mind says no, but maybe someone figured out a way with USB stick or something else. I won’t be mad at all if it doesn’t work by the way, I am just asking.
I tried the search function but the only subject I found people were saying that the HUB couldn’t come without an HDD and they never answered the question.
