I have a Popcorn Hour A-210 with a 1 TB internal HD and a PC running Win 8.1. So far, I've been transferring files using a local network, but it's not very fast because even though the router is Gigabit the cable connecting the two devices is Cat 5. I'm thinking of just moving the HD to an enclosure near the PC and just letting the my pop watch the videos from there. Given that, can the PC access the contents of the HD, or do I have to move them to the PC first? If it's the latter, is it possible to to move the PCH next to the PC, connect it to the Gigabit router router using a short Cat 6 cable, and then transfer the files before I re-format the HD, put it in an enclosure, and copy the files back?
