Not Everyones Thing But.....

I have found the WDLive TV far more efficient and more productive just using and external USB HD or USB Stick to read and watch files, faster and a lot better than messing around with connection to your PC.


Chucking a mirror image on an external USB drive not only gives you a back up but you also do not have to double your electric use having a PC running as well.


Just a thought and basic observation but it is working very well for me this way.

Of course you will have better performance using USB, however having it connected to your network let you access Internet Services as a well as content you may already have in your computers or NAS.

Agree; having all options available is ideal, and yes, accessing one's media from the WD-attached hard drive is best for all the obvious reasons.
