I'm looking for a way to play content on an old Flat Panel that has no USB input but does have HDMI.
I checked out the WD site to see the specs of the TV Live product.. It says "built in WiFi" and
I wonder.....
1-does this mean that i can login to my mobile hotspot with the WD live and communicate with my Slingbox back home?

and then i thought of another question....
2-could I just as well plug an external HDD in an enclosure with a USB output into the USB port as I can a flash drive?

either of these two options would be great. Both would be simply amazing.

Thanks for your help!!

1 - It seems possible since it has a dedicated SlingPlayer app that works with a local or a remote SlingBox.

2 - Definitely.
