That functionality is a convenience to allow you to remotely manage attached storage on the WD Live without having to detach the drive and plug it into your PC -- that would be an issue if you had a multi-drive array attached. But that is the intent, not to use them as a NAS unit to supply other streamers.
Very good point. I think I should stop discussing this now and accept that max file transfer is going to be 7 MB/s and I can learn to live with it.
As you know, if we unplug the drives from the WD streamer, we have to set up the inputs drives again.. so, to avoid that, I try to upload via network, without having to turn the WD streamer off.
Thanks for the clarification. This concludes my participation in this thread. I don't want to hijack the original intent of this thread.
