Shield and Nas device


#1

My current Nas device is not compatible with channels. However I just purchased a shieldTV, can I plug that into my shield and install the channels DVR server on shield and it will run good? Currently I have server running on Surface Pro 3.


#2

If you plug the NAS in via usb to the shield, it should work. What kind of device is it?


#3

WD my cloud. Would it work just as good running on shield or better to just keep it on surface.


#4

It will run well on the shield and easier to manage than on a laptop. Make sure the shield is hard wired to the router too.


#5

It is, will the app keep the shield awake?


#6

Yes, the shield will stay awake.

However if you are using MyCloud Home then I don't think that will work with the shield over usb. It requires some special drivers and only works on PC/Mac


#7

Do I have to format my Nas when hooked up to shield? I don't want to lose everything that is on it.

This is what I am using. https://www.walmart.com/ip/WD-2TB-My-Cloud-Personal-Network-Attached-Storage-NAS-WDBCTL0020HWT-NESN/30579531

That one should work I think.

You will need to create a directory NVIDIA_SHIELD and move the existing DVR directory into it, then when you attach to the Shield it will be able to read and write from that folder.

So I know how to create a new director but I don't know how to move the existing one into it.
