Drobo on Roku USB?

I was just wondering if anyone has experience with connecting a Drobo 1st Gen to the USB port of a Roku 3. My concerns would be media playback, like buffering, and proper standby/removal without Dashboard.
Thanks for any comments or suggestions!

hi does the roku require an internet connection to work?
if the roku can accept a usb device, and simply play back content, that’s 1 good thing…

but… it might have limitations:

  • such as only seeing the 1st volume
  • or only seeing certain filesystems of the volume (such as fat 32 for example)
  • and if your only copy of the data is on that drobo itself, then its good to wait until you have a backup ,or at least some trustworthy confirmation that it will work without problems :slight_smile:
