    Hi All.

    Having an issue with a Sony Anycast Station. We use this for city hall
    coverage at a local tv station, and we have our opening and closing on
    a Western Digital My Book (Firewire) external hard drive. When it
    works, it works fine, however a lot of times, the western digital
    drive goes to sleep, at the most inconvenient time, and when we try to
    cue up the video, it starts playing, then freezes, with audio buzzing,
    then a second or two later, starts up and plays the video. This seems
    to be at random times. Is this an issue with the anycast, or with the
    drive, or a combination of the two? I am not familiar with WD external
    hard drives, only using lacie drives.

    Just one of the many issues i have with this device.
