Will this work with a mac running OSX Lion

Sorryfunk

Yes

Nice! Hot from me.

How is it an iTunes server? You would still need a computer running iTunes to stream to Apple TV or directly to an iPhone or iPad? I appreciate there are apps and the jailbreak option to make this work, but it's not an out of the solution. Unless you can tell me otherwise.

seems good value -have some heat. How does this compare to the hp proliant microserver?

anyone know if this is compatible and able to run squeezecentre?

can the disk drive be used as an external drive for computers?

Thanks

After pulling out my DVD drive in my laptop to do an SSD / HDD combo, this is tempting if you can read a DVD via the network.

Guys, good news, this can be un-expired as we have access to extra stock back online now!

I don't know how NAS bays work... I have just brought a htpc (acer revo) but only 60gb ssd... So not enough memory for my media...

Would I be able to connect this to my wireless network and allow me to watch my movies or music or pictures over wifi without any issues

Also would it b secure so no one can access my family documents or photos etc as I've always been scared of this..

I am new tithe world of tech after, still getting the grasp of certain aspect so any advice/guidance/tips would b appreciated (sorry for the additional qs in this topic but not sure where else to ask them, esp as fellow users are rating this hot)

Thanks

It is likely that iSCSI will be used to mount the networked DVD drive as a separate drive letter on a client computer. Most versions of Windows do have iSCSI service available but there are problems with Windows iSCSI service and large files (blue screen), when used in conjunction with some network adapters. I recommend using Starwind's iSCSI solution and switch off Microsoft's (within the Windows services). I currently have a blu ray drive that is serving several clients on a 802.11n wifi network via use of Starwind's iSCSI.

EDIT: The user manual does not mention iSCSI support so you may not be able to access the DVD drive remotely and a server with iSCSI support may be required to fulfill your requirements.

You can access the server to play media on your client computers. It is also possible to map a drive letter to directories within the server, eg. set a P: drive to access your photos, Q: drive for video, etc. The server can be protected with a username and password so access requires authentication, and subsequently, mapping drive letters also requires authentication (but you can make this persistent thus restarting your PC does not require re-authentication, unless the server's login credentials are changed). It is also possible to access your documents on the server from another computer outside your home, by the way. Of course, this also requires authentication.

Playback of video over your wifi network may be an issue if your network speed is not quick enough to cope with the "bitrate" of the video (the bitrate being the number of bits per second). If the video bitrate is approaching to or higher than the bitrate of your wifi network, you will encounter problems. Essentially, if your video is sending more data than your wireless network can handle, there will be missed frames in the video (at best).

For access of the DVD drive, see my previous post.

You mean Logitech Media Server (it is called like that now). Officialy it is not supported. Only some ReadyNas models from Netgear supported from Logitech.

My experience is that an 'iTunes server' Library is only visible to desktop clients.
So iTunes on your PC or Mac can see the shared server library.

However - your Apple TV, and iOS devices will not be able to see it.
They can only connect to a shared library on a desktop running an instance of iTunes.

Something like an Acer Revo is your next best 'neat' solution to serve iTunes media to your ATV and iOS devices.

Yes.
I use "8player" myself to play content from my UPnP- as this handles video very very well without the need for transcoding in many cases.

However - none of these app solutions will work on a vanilla ATV, nor are they quite as elegant as iTunes serving the media.

Can map cdrom as network drive and read cd/dvd media (unencrypted non CSS movie) to ISO etc with ImgBurn etc (dvd-rom drive appears to have riplock though)

Ah, but what if it's laid on it's side? No... The other side!

Early in the morning if you're joking but that is with it laid on its side (The designed way e.g standing upright with lg badge at bottom left ) if you mean laid out like a normal external DVD writer then the dye/data side needs to be on the bottom.

This is the fantastic user interface you've got to look forward to ..The file transfers to and from are fantastic but the Fisher price crippled crap is useless for anything else.

Anyone using this with a DLNA Panasonic Viera for Video streaming?

Can anyone that bought one and has an xbox 360 see if they can get it to work with their media blade on the 360. Especially anyone who has not updated the firmware on the LG to the latest version yet. Thanks..

Mine does not work and LG are telling me they are not going to fix it after telling me to use a third party program on xbox 360 (yeah right). My zyxel 310 and linkstation live work ok just not the LG N1T3. Tbf the xbox 360 is not certified by the DLNA.
