Awesome Sam thank you. I see your points. And hey, if you’re saying it’s not a good idea, I’m persuaded. I’m going to try what you said here. I’ll just keep the 64GB SD card and use the extra room as storage for a backup, and then use 1-2 USB drives.
I guess maybe a different (or “the right”) question is this: if I need a player to have ~100GB storage and I want to keep the form factor small and attempt at controlling cost, is the Vero the best solution? I have a collection of devices that I’m testing (NUC, Chromebox, RPi, RPi2, Nexus Player, AFTV, and waiting on the new NUC and the Intel Compute Stick) and I like this little box, but sure wish I could expand the local storage.
