    We have two (2) WD TV Live SMPs in our home network. They have different names so we can at least tell them apart. Both connects to a Windows Home Server 2011 where all movies and music, among others, are stored.

    Question is: If I have Media Library turned ON on both devices (Music and Movies folders) and both have read/write access to my WHS2011, is this going to be a problem? Will they be able to work together or overwrite/override each other?

    What if I add a third WD TV Live SMP with the similar Media Library settings?

    Simultaneous reads by a few players ought not to create a problem (it's a server product after all). if you're going to write to the files however, you might want to serialize access instead of doing things in parallel.
