    I have the same WD TV Live box. I noticed it crashes sometimes when you have the "cataloging" (or whatever it's called) option on while using an HDD you connect and disconnect a lot.
    It compiles your media library every time you plug the HDD in, when you have this options turned on.

    Have you updated to the latest firmware? If not, I would suggest you do so.
    It solved quite a lot of bugs regarding this.

    My device is hooked up to an HDD every now and then but always to my NAS.
    Occasionally when I hook up my HDD, the WD TV starts acting up. Just do a hard reboot and you're fine.

    Never had this issue with its predecessor though.

    Hope this helps!

    It supports 1 INTERNAL HD (now up to 4TB) and it has 2 usb ports for external drives.
    I use a powered USB Hub which allows even more storage!
    Is that enough?

    Why not buy a cheap powered hub and possibly fix your problem on a budget. Underpowered hubs can definitely cause problems like that.
