External Hard Drive to playback files on TV Needed
My brother-in-law is looking for an external hard drive that he can copy his DVDs/Music to and plug into his TV via HDMI to browse and playback the files. In an ideal world this hard drive would be expandable or upgradeable to a higher capacity if he feels it's necessary at a later date.
Most of his files will be AVI and MP3 which I assume is compatible with most devices on the market. He would be looking for a minimum of 1TB of storage. Live features like Spotify or Youtube are a bonus but hardly vital.
I actually own the WD TV Live Hub 1TB which I have 'expanded' by plugging a WD Elements 3TB drive into. This arrangement would work for him but it seems WD have discontinued the Live Hub and its replacement the Elements Play. We could pick a Live Hub up on Ebay but I'm wondering what other options are available to him
