The setup is for the home use of one person essentially.
The following will be attached to a router:
1.) 2 x computers (one used infrequently)
2.) 1 x laptop
3.) 1 x media player (networked)
4.) 1 x Avermedia F10 - TV tuner for networked devices
a.) I would like to access 3 x external HDD (not networked enabled) and the media player and Avermedia both of which are network enabled from any device without being dependant on another, for example the media player ideally should be able to access an external hard drive without a computer.
b.) Ideally I would like to use one external device 2T as the backend of all the computers which would ideally be synced.
c.) I do not need extra storage so a NAS server seems like overkill is there anything else I could use to perhaps network each HDD individually.
