Thanks for the replies.
I’m aware this is a user forum; I’m not looking for official WD answers, or a vision in to the future what products might come in the near or distant future.
I was just looking for a replacement for my Lacie mediaplayer since it is not working for me…since I have several WD
HDD’s which I am very happy with I am looking into replacing in with a WD Tv Live or Hub.
I moved towards the hub due to the initernal storage. When I wanted to order one, I saw it was almost nowhere available, or on some sites, mentioned as being discontinues.
So 1. I cannot find or buy one and 2. if I do find one, I not sure about support (hardware, firmware) in the future.
On the WD official site though, it is still being marketed in the products section, though it cannot be ordered in their own shop (out of stock).
So I moved towards considering the WD TV Live. Seems to have the same capabilities…though no internal drive.
If I read correctly, it is a little more recent, with more RAM … which is a good thing.
My question would be, if I get the WD TV live, add an external HDD, would it be as performant and good and the Hub ?
Or is the usb 2 connection not fast enough to transport 1080p video ?
Also, would I be able to use WD Photos or WD 2GO app with the Live to connect remotely? It is not mentioned anywhere, only of the hub and the personal cloud disk. Since the Live and the hub are more or less the same, it should work, no ?
Any experiences on this ?
