WD tv 12v power?

#1

I am thinking about getting one of these to play video files stored on a usb thumb drive in a car. It will only be used in the car. Is it possible to power this with 12v dc? Or can it be powered through a 5 v usb connector?

Thanks for any help

WDTV Live Streaming requires a 12V AC (Alternating Current) / 2 AMPS / 24 WATTS power supply.

So you need to buy/select an appropriate car inverter to power it … talk to an auto electrician if unsure.
