Just got my new WD TV Live Hub and am very excited to get it up and running…i had been using a hacked AppleTV with XBMC on it to stream movies, but it recently had been buffering too much on movies so I wanted to buy a solution with built in media storage.
I have dual band 802.11n Netgear wireless routers and access points connecting my computer and the Hub (cable internet goes directly into Wireless Router #1, computer is hardwired into that router…and then Hub is connected to Wireless Access Point #2…hopefully that helps paint the picture of my setup)
Anyway, the Hub was totally plug-n-play…it found the internet no problem and I downloaded two firmware updates back-to-back. It also was able to find my shared folders on my computer, and I was able to see the WDTVLIVEHUB “server” from my computer (running Win7 64bit btw).
I tried to stream a 720p movie but it stuttered…not too surprised since it was doing that on my AppleTV/XBMC setup (side note, if there’s ways to tweak my wireless so it can stream it without buffering/stuttering, let me know!!!)
I copied a movie over to a USB stick and played it…was flawless of course.
But *then* I tried to copy that movie (about 3GB file) from my computer over to the WDTVLIVEHUB folder…it started to copy it over and said it would take about an hour…but after a very short time I would get an error that the WDTVLIVEHUB was no longer accessible. Of course, if I went to go look for the hub, it was there and ready to take the file.
I’ve tried normal dragging-and-dropping the file as well as using a program called Richcopy. Nothing seems to work.
Is this an issue with my wireless setup, or the hub, or both? Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!
