I have a WDTV Live Hub and a WD Mybooklive Duo. On the Mybook live Duo I have ripped and stored my old DVD’s and Blu Ray’s.
In my previous network setup I had the Mybook Duo connected to an Ethernet network switch wich also was connected to the WDTV Live Hub. I could easily access and stream my DVD’s and Blu Rays on the MybookLive Duo to the WDTV Live Hub. The network switch was also connected to a powerline adapter, providing all devices access to the internet.
However, also on the Mybook was my Itunes library stored. Whenever I wanted to synchronise my ipad or iphone it took almost forever to do so, because the Mybooklive Duo was also connected through that ethernet switch to a powerline plug of Devolo (Devolo Dlan 200 AVmini). My PC was also connected to a powerplug, so I have a wired network over the electricity.
So I changed the setup and I connected now the Mybooklive with a ethernet network switch to the PC so I can access my Itunes library quicker. Now the WDTV live hub and the Mybook LIve communicate over the powerline adapters.
But now when I stream media it is very slow.
Is there any way to keep the current setup (communication of the two devices over the powerline adapters instead of "next to each other over an ethernet switch)? Can I alter some settings in order to make sure data transfer runs smoother over the powerline adapters?
When I transfer (copy or paste) files I have a semi constant speed of 4 MB/s.
Or do I invest in more speedy powerline adapters like the Devolo Dlan 500?
Any tips are more than welcome.
