Roku to roku shares

Is it possible to share connected media from on Roku device to another? If not, howcould one recommend this feature?

I have an external hd connected to a Tony tv, I would like to be able to see it's content on another Roku device.

Re: Roku to roku shares

That would be a neat feature, but I'm not aware of any way to do it.  There is a place to suggest new features.  Most people use a dedicated computer as a media server and then use something like the Roku Media Player or Plex to access it.

Technically, I believe it's possible to have a Roku channel/app running on the Roku with the attached drive to act as a server.  It would make an interesting project for a motivated developer.  It would, however, take the Roku out of service as far as doing anything else while content was being viewed on the second Roku.
