Informatio Request before buying
« on: June 25, 2010, 01:53:40 pm »

Hello everyone!

Im evaluating the purchase of a linkstation pro 1.5 -2 TB and would like to have some tech info, just to be sure before spending the money

.

Im planning to use it to stream video files on 2 TV's : 1 is DLna compliant, so i wont have problems i suppose.

On the other TV i will use as streamer my old PS2, using the software called SMS media player.

 

Does anyone can confirm me it will work via SMB -cifs?

Have you ever had any positive feedback on this?

 

I hope i posted it on the right place :-)

thanks and regards!

What you described should work, but it largely depends on the SMS Media Player program.

 

If it accesses data over the network via the SMB protocol, it should work fine.  The shares on the linkstation should show up with no issues.
