i am trying to set up a media server in my home, if anyone here could help me i would greatly appreciate it.
so heres how i normally do it, i have all my media on my computer which i stream to my ps3 via ps3 media server. this works perfectly but the computer has to be always on and running ps3media server. What i am trying to do is eliminate the computer from the equation.
I recently purchased the wd n900 my net central hd with 2 TB hdd. what i want to do is put all my media on the WD N900 and stream directly from the WD while keeping my computer off.
I played around with it a bit last night and got some test files to show up on the WD router but i still had to keep my computer open and running ps3 media server.
Does anyone know how i would go about setting this up. Maybe the WD router wont work for what i want to do? if anyone has other suggestions of a different product that will accomplish this i can still return the router.
P.s. my computer is a macbook pro in case that makes a difference in the set up.
