I have a docking station connected directly to the Dune in an "external hard drive" configuration, with My Movies as the front end media browser. The docking station is set to automatically turn on when the Dune is powered on, and turn off when the Dune is turned off. The problem I"m having is that if I don't have the docking station already up and running when I turn on the Dune, the Dune does not detect the hard drives, making them inaccessible---despite the docking station being ON with the fan and drives running. I then have to turn off the Dune for a couple of seconds, and then turn it back on before my docking station automatically turns off. In other words, it appears that the Dune searches for the external drives as soon as the Dune turns on, but if the connected drives need time to power up it does not detect them. One solution is to leave my docking station running 24/7, but I do not use my Dune every day, so I would rather not do that.
