I recently purchased an IOGEAR GUIP204 USB HUB with ethernet connection. It seemed the ideal partner (ability to attach four USB hard drives) for the WD TV LIVE I have ordered.   Upon receipt of the unit, it became clear that it still requires some resident software on the PC.  Thus this is also a notice to others that its not currently an ideal solution  :( .  Request WD to investigate if its even feasible to build in the firmware the necessary compatibilty.  THis type of USb LAN hub could work very well if supported.   IF this is better placed in the 'homebrew' section (such as has been done for NDAS devices)  my apologies, but I would rather see this as a native feature.
