external hard drive
Oops sorry! it's by egreat, model number HM-R6A II PRO.
I'm hoping that it does what I want it to do. If it doesn't I will return it and buy the one by WD as that one has a well known name.
Thank you so much for your help. It's good to know that the homebrew isn't worth playing with as I believe I can get netflix, youtube etc from/through the media player.
