    WD TV Live Hub

    Seen a lot of people talk about this... What exactly does it allow you to do?

    You can save them off your TV and then watch them without internet?

    Re: WD TV Live Hub

    I have the Live Hub, and I rave about it....I primarily use it for my VUDU movies, movies stored on my NAS and Netflix...I have about 130 HDX movies downloaded to it's 1TB drive......I have had no buffering issues, I can download movies, but they cannot be played offline....If you are a home cinema buff, it can handle many video formats if you back up your BD disks, .....On the audio side, it handles most formats, the only one it doesn't is DTS HD and DTS Master Audio......IMO it is the best VUDU-compatible media player......It is versatile, photos, videos, movies, music can be stored on it....

    you can go to Western Digital's site for more info......As far as playing downloads offline, I am hoping when Ultraviolet deploys the Common File Format(CFF), that will take care of the issue....

    There is also the WD Live, which is the version without the hard drive if you just want to stream your films.....

      Are you able to download rentals to the hard drive for watching later? This would solve the buffering problems I experience now halfway through a movie.

          Do you know if this device outputs ycbcr or RGB and whether it will send the 1080p out at 24hz?

          Thanks.

            RGB, no, Component, I'm not sure if you mean if it can do 1080P/24Hz via component outs, I use HDMI and it can do 1080P/24HZ, if your display can accept it.........You can set it to auto, or you can select whichever frequency is listed....

            UPDATE: WD now has the Live Hub with a 500GB and 2TB HDD built in, in addition to the 1TB version....

              Cool. Basically I was just looking to see if it would output the Vudu HDX download file at 1080p/24 ycbcr via HDMI to my display. The PS3 was stuck to 1080p/60 and RGB with their App. Not as ideal IMO.
