So there is no NMT that uses the full potential of cabled/wireless networks (transfer speeds)? Transfering large files from PC --> NMT can only be achieved by using een external HDD and move around with it or move around with the NMT itself (usb slave)?
Downloading torrent files to the NMT itself can be a solution cause my download speeds will not be higher then 6-8 Mbps. But if you can't extract them there's no use for that. (extracting will be as slow as hell if it could be done i guess).
I want the NMT not to stream files cause i want to be able to turn off the pc...and buying a NAS just to stream files is a little to much for me...
Did i miss something or is full network speed just and illusion for all NMT's and the ones that come in the near future. I think most people don't want to stream from a PC or NAS but just want to "fast" copy there large (downloaded) movies/series to a device that can play them.
Any thoughts ..
USB is the fastest option for transfers, Ftp over network got me about 1Mbit so took about 20 mins to copy over Benjamin Button from PC ..>> HDX1000
about 1.4 gig. But wasn't bothered as just let it run and went for some food! :P
I will be using it for torrenting and newsgroups when I learn about news groups that is!!
Reason being that I can switch off pC and get rid of seedbox I think the HDX100 consumes about 13 watts??!! so much cheaper than leaving PC on!!
I'm under the impression that there is a way to unrar in the NMT but here its dog slow so will prolly just use my memory stick unrar at the PC then put back on HDX1000
Hi jack has wrote a guide to transfer files faster haven't read it thoroughly but its in the forum somewhere..
If you just want to fast copy as you say to a device that can play them, then go through USB direct to PC
Hope this helps
