How do I add DNLA devices to network for Hopper see them
Posted 23 April 2012 - 06:03 PM
I want to install dlna drives so that I can use the hopper.
I have four USB 2 tb hard drives. I am unfamiliar with dlna devices.
Can some one suggest appropriate dlna devices so that I can access and watch my movies with my hopper?
One person had complained that his hopper is not seeing his dlna devices

"Belligerent and numerous."
SlingTV, Tablo and Plex to Roku 3s and Chromecasts on a Vizio 42" in the living room and a Toshiba 32" in my bedroom. Xbox 360 client on a Westinghouse 42" in the game room. Tablets EVERYWHERE!
I used to update the Dish Network FAQ but not anymore.

My question was: "Can some one suggest appropriate dlna devices so that I can access and watch my movies with my hopper?"
I am trying to find a dlna device which would make my hard drive visitble to the hopper, so that I can watch with my hopper!
btw, my dard drives have .iso files

Yes it does, but it doesn't support DVD menus. Asus does support DVD menus, so that's a better choice. I simply posted the first iso streamer that came to mind.
thanks for clarification mdavej but are you sure wd live plays iso files. I think I bought one, sent it overseas and found out that it does not play .iso files. I had to buy an Asus media player

However, when watching a video stream I cannot fwd or rwd at all.
Hopper cannot handle streams in flac and ts.
