Thread: WL-500G Deluxe + HDD + DBOX2 possible?

    WL-500G Deluxe + HDD + DBOX2 possible?

    Hi everybody!

    Is it possible to use an external usb hdd connected to a Wl-500g deluxe to use it for video-recording from a dbox2?

    And what configurations must be set on the router and the dbox2 (with linux on it).

    It's possible, although, for some tv program's the quality is to high to record it. (for example, I can't record the Formula 1 Race because it is about 5-6 Mbit/sec).

    The best way to do it, is thru a NFS export/share.

    Just export an map on your wl500g and mount it on your dbox2.

    At first you must format your external hd as ex3 with the name 'part1' as 'logical partition'. Perhaps you can do this with the program partition magic.

    Now my configuration:

    o IP-Config -> DHCP Server
    At "Manually Assigned IP List" I use the following adresses: (für den PC) (für die DBox)

    o USB Application -> FTP Server
    Enable FTP-Server: yes
    Allow Anonymous User to login: yes
    Allow Super user to login: yes

    User Account List:
    User Name: root, Password: dbox2, Rights: Read/Write/Erase
    User Name: admin, Password: You should know, Rights: Read/Write/Erase

    o USB Application -> Samba
    Enable Samba Demo mode? yes
    Enable hidden read-write share? yes
    Workgroup name: Here you have to enter the name of the workgroup of your pc.

    o USB Application -> NFS Server
    Export: /tmp/harddisk/ (rw,async,no_root_squash)

    At your dbox you have to enter for you mount diretory:

    Typ: NFS
    Server IP:
    Verzeichnis/Freigabe /tmp/harddisk/filme ("filme" is the directory at your ext3 hd)
    lokales Verzeichnis: /mnt/filme (directory at your dbox)
    Mount-Optionen: nolock,rsize=8192,wsize=32768

    Have luck!
