I'm considering buying the gearbox because I want several things:
1) always-on file access
2) low power consumption
3) upnp ability to stream to my various devices
4) ftp capabilities
I bought the NAS adapter from Addonics and it gives me everything except #3 even though they claim it's upnp capable. iTunes can't see anything past 50 or so files. My Roku Soundbridge can't connect to it at all. My XBMC htpc can't do anything with it in upnp mode. Windows, which does see it as a media device, can't access any files from the media server function.
The SMB shares and FTP work fine.
So I'm looking at the Gearbox and was wondering if anyone had any luck with its uPnP capabilities, specifically with the Roku Soundbridge. I did read a search on the forums and there seemed to be some problems with the uPnP functions but that was supposedly being addressed, but I haven't been able to find out more on that.
Anyone care to share their experience regarding this? Thanks!
