Re: Ditching Shaw cable need media player ideas

Its not on your list, however I recently got the WD Live TV Hub, basically its the same thing minus wireless, however includes a 1TB hard drive. So far its worked, though I have a few files which don't seem to be supported. Its web features are a tad light, but that's because most of the services aren't supported up here in Canada. Media indexing is slow and problematic, best just to stick with the folder view (both this device and the one you are looking at share the same firmware).

When I get around to running more cable it will be integrated into my network so the HDD will be perhaps less important, it still has USB ports for additional media storage to be connected. WD HUB is on when it is off, from the network you can still see it and access the files, send or remove as you wish which makes it a usefully little NAS.
