Bestbuy Easystore

Postby tbro28 » Tue Jan 08, 2019 8:09 pm

I have two 8TB Easystores that I was hoping to use as a DVR. One is plugged directly into my router and the other is plugged into a Shield. Is there anyway to use either with those setups? I tried installing the software remotely from a Windows 10 machine for the router, but after logging in the software just hangs. I haven't tried the Shield yet to find out, but I'm not very hopeful. It's currently plugged directly into my router too as a Plex server.

Several people have tried to use a router as DVR engine. Just doesn't work well or at all. But you should be able to enable the DVR engine on the Shield. Plugin the USB Drive (should be USB 3) into the Shield. Launch the HDHomeRun Android app. Hit play/pause 13 times. Then enable the DVR.
