In most cases, BluRay players do not make for good streamers for ripped content. In most cases they support limited codecs and are DLNA clients and therefore need a DLNA server to deliver content and...

I am curious about that also. The internal drive has to be a 2.5" form factor. The WD AV drives come in a 2.5" line with a max size of 1TB.

Wait a minute.
You bought a used DVR+ off ebay which will not come with a warranty and you paid $12 more than you would of for a new one with a warranty -- because it comes with a wifi adapter that...
