First, I admit that I leaped into the WD Hub world before I educated myself well enough… Current setup is 3 Hubs plus a 2TB MyBook Live, all hard wired on a gigabit network.
What I want to do is set up a way to centralize access to all content. By this I mean, press the Videos radio button and have all videos on all 4 devices combined into one list. As I know, the Hub as designed won’t do that. In essence, I want it to behave somewhat like my Whole Home DirecTV DVRs - content from all DVRs show up on one playlist.
If I set up a PC running Twonky (or some other media sharing software) it is possible for that PC to combine all 4 souces into one share/one set of folders? If so, how much horsepower would that PC need? I have an old Dell laptop with a P4 CPU (don’t remember CPU speed) and a 100MB ethernet port - is that enough to stream HD M2Ts files and blu ray ISOs from the connected Hubs and NAS?
