GEN 3 to WD TV with USB
Will the Wester Digital TV connect and work nicely with the drobo 3rd gen?

Will it see all the hard drives?

I have a ton of videos I want to load on to the drobo...then connect the drobo by usb direct to the wd tv...and be able to access and play those video files direct.

Thanks!

No, the GEN 3 is designed as a Direct attach storage unit, and is designed to be connected to a PC or MAC in order to access the files. If you are looking to stream to a TV, you would need to install a media server on your PC that can point to your GEN 3, or look into getting a 5N or B800fs network attached storage unit.
