I did do my best spending a little bit of time searching through here – but I guess I’m just confused about what I thought I bought and what I bought
Before I got the WDTV Live Hub 1 TB I had WDTV Live HD… 1st generation I believe (the one that didnt have netflix). That device was simple – I loaded up the external HD with files, plugged it into the little box, and it read the HD.
I have yet to repeat that experience with the hub because it just tries to compile the media library for days. I found success instead transferring files over wireless (network shared folders?) and just dragging them in (although it does take awhile).
When I plug in my (WD) external HD which probably has hundreds of gigs of stuff and WD hub tries to ‘compile a media library’ – what is going on here? Why is then the entire harddrive accessible by all devices on my network? Is it transferring the files to this so-called network harddrive or is it merely preparing to read it?
And most of all – why didnt I read more about this?
All in all I’m happy with the thing, its pretty neat and I never had netflix streaming before. Sorry for the long post
