OK…have been researching all the NMP out there and now down to WD…between Live Plus & Hub. I’m thinking of springing for the Hub but reading the user manual it appears that anytime you have a USB HDD hooked up or Network folder the Hub does a “sync”…basically copying files to the Hub. I see you can turn off these functions but what I want based on the amount/size of my media library is to but the 1TB Hub…hook up exteranal USB HDDs…have the Hub search and integrate both the internal files a put on the Hub and the USB HDD files into it’s Menu/Library but NOT copy the content to the Hub’s HDD. Basically, I want to be able to use the USB HDD ports as “expansion” ports that seemlessly their content is integrated on the menus…not physically…into my Hub’s Media library. Obviously, this means the USB HDD remain connected. Will this product work this way ?
Also, I assume you can replace the internal HDD with a 2TB or even in future 4TB ? If so, is there a procedure/link to do this ?
