I have a Western Digital TV Live Hub, that is a network device. From XP it can be accessed as \\wdtvlivehub\WDTVLiveHub\

I would like to mount this to LinHES so that I can rsync a large amount of content into the WD device. Is there a mount example that would provide some guidance? Not sure if mount.cifs is the appropiate command for this situation.

Thanks.

According to this review

http://www.storagereview.com/western_digital_wd_tv_live_review

It' possible to connect with NFS and or Samba

Testing with NFS would be easier since it's already setup with /myth/tv (fstab)

Samba would also work but the credentials thing is more leg work. I don't have the WD box but as a rule

Linux - Linux use NFS
Linux - Windows use Samba

For Samba in general it will look something like

mkdir /mnt/WDTV
mount -t cifs //wdtvlivehub/WDTVLiveHub /mnt/WDTV

If you need to specify a user and password then it should be something like:
mount -t cifs //wdtvlivehub/WDTVLiveHub /mnt/WDTV -o user=<username>,password=<password>

see also man mount.cifs

Very nice gentlemen. This allows me to use the CLI tools like rsync. Much faster (2-4X) than drop and drag from an XP box: from SAMBA share (USB HDD) to the new appliance. Really appreciate the help.

I think that max speed will be realized when I can root the appliance: I would have finer control over file transfers through the USB and the best possible speed.

Update: using rysnc to move a large block of content from USBHDD on mythbox, through network to LiveHUB at 7MB/s, about half the speed when I transfer from one USB to another USB drive.

If you need to add it to fstab you will add an entry something like:
Code:
//wdtvlivehub/WDTVLiveHub /mnt/WDTV   cifs  user=<username>, pass=<password>   0   0
