Advice for NAS + WD TV Live (is it possible?)

Hi there, i'm new to the site so I hope i'm posting this in the right place...
Basically I need some help with a set up i'm attempting to...set up... and thought i'd come somewhere people may have considered the same issues/ know their stuff. This brought me to you guys. So here goes...
I already have one of [url=http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.asp?driveid=735]these[/url]
Through which I run all my downloaded TV shows and digital copy Films off a portable hard drive which works like a dream and has done for ages and i'm very happy with it.
However, what I am thinking of doing now, is getting one of [url=http://www.dabs.com/products/netgear-stora-2-bay-diskless-nas-chassis-71Y4.html]these[/url]
..plus 2 additional hard drives (say a couple of 1TBs, or 1.5TBs), hooking it up to my switch that sits under the TV and connects everything on the ground floor of my house so that I 1) Have everything backed up twice in a single wirelessly and wired location and 2) Plug the WD TV Live player directly into this box via USB, removing the need to unplug my portable HDD and physically carry it between PC and WD player.
What I want to know is, will this work?
I'm basically completely betting on the fact that the WD will be able to read straight from this NAS Stora via it's USB point. so before I try it I want to know if anyone can tell me that it definitely [i]won't[/i] work?
