I'll look in to MDP and MediaTomb tonight.

Most definitely. They're both essentially the same anyway as Boxee is based on XBMC (I thought Boxee had discontinued it's PC support though. Surprised to hear there's still a Boxee OS floating about). In fact you can use a uPnP client on your phone and (on android at least) when I click a video to play it gives me the option to play on the phone or play on my XBMC media centre. You can also get XBMC remotes (you need the web interface enabled on XBMC) which are apps that run on your phone / tablet and allow you to use them as a remote control for your media centre.

Personally, I'd recommend you install XBMCbuntu. It's XBMC's official OS installer and (as you've already guessed) it's based off Ubuntu. So it should be a familiar internals to what you're used to plus a stress free way to get XBMC on your media centre (I think it works as a live CD too). Check their site for more details.

This is the problem though, Silverlight isn't more open - it only pretends to be. I can't run Netflix on my system because Netflix depends on DRM extensions in Silverlight that MS never released to Linux. So I either have to run XBMC in Windows and loose some of the other Linux features I use (not all that appealing) or loose Netflix. And what's most frustrating is that Netflix offers unlimited bandwidth and unlimited numbers of videos views - so the DRM is completely pointless as you'd just stream from the cloud rather than spend all that extra time pratting about with ripping the stream and then filling your own storage up. So in the movie industries attempt to reduce piracy, they've instead made it hard to watch things legitimately thus making the piracy route more attractive. (and now I'm back on my soap box! maybe I should start a blog lol)

Seriously though, the IT sector is in a serious mess and it's not all one sided with the downloaders being at fault frown.gif . Us good guys get screwed left, right and centre.

Thanks for all the great info man biggrin.gif

I started downloading XBMCUbuntu. But now I think I'm reading that you say it won't work with Netflix? Well that's a bummer... I'll try it out anyway, hopefully it work with my Rosewill MCE remote I already have.

the problem with netflix is silverlite. they do have one open sourced for linux but the problem is that it doesn't work with DRM. netflix needs the DRM or it wont work.

http://www.go-mono.com/moonlight/faq.aspx

There are Netflix plugins for the Boxee Box (which is Linux based and uses XBMC source), ChromeBook (Linux again) as well as various non-x86 devices such as Android handsets and games consoles (all of which wouldn't have Silverlight libraries). So I really cannot see the big deal with them releasing a DRM free player for the more traditional Linux installs as well.

However there are rumours that Netflix are working on a Chrome plug in - though not due until mid to late this year frown.gif

Not sure what OS to get for this which i plan to use for the real server i will build. I know i cant run Linux because i have 2 programs that require Windows to run.

Nice server!!! Although I don't like the sound of a Generic Power Supply, what is the brand???

I'd add to this, it's not a real server like a blade or a Dell, HP flavor.. but for what I use it for at home on my 300mbit fiber, it's enough..

OS: Windows Server 2003 Enterprise SP2, I'll upgrade to 2008 eventually once I'm in the mood..
Case: Xigmatek Asgard Pro
CPU: 2500K
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z68 UD3
Cooling: Corsair H70
Memory: 16GB Corsair Vengeance
PSU: Corsair AX750
OS HDD: (If you have one) : Crucial M4
Storage HDD(s): 4x WD Black 2 TB Raid 5 on LSI Megaraid 9265
Server Manufacturer: (Ex: Dell, HP, You?) All me baby !!

What you use it for (Print server, backups, file server, etc.)
hmm there's a ton of stuff installed on it, but lets leave it at the core functions... Syslog for my VPN firewall, file server / Media server, SQL server 2005, IIS for web serving, VM Workstation, P2P..
Temps, loudness, etc.
The system is pretty loud because of the Icy Dock, I originally thought the dock was going to keep my hard drives cool and quiet while giving me the option of "quick removal", I was wrong... The hard disk hangs at 60c if the AC is off and fan is set on low, I have the fan set on medium now and it stays in a low 40's with or without AC.

The LSI Megaraid hits almost 100c, 60c with a side window fan pointing at it.

CPU and board wise, stays at a comfortable low 30s, 40s if under load.
Any additional software that you use
I use to host game servers on it, but since then has been pretty much idle, now it's more for file serve, backup, my blog hosting, and porn... lol biggrin.gif

Occasionally do some dvd ripping and encoding, various testing on VM environments.

Not the best quality, but here you go..

That's an amazing server but I still don't get why people think they need a quad core and 16GB RAM for a file/backup server. I have Pentium 3's and Pentium 4's that do that and they are still overkill for such simple tasks.

Exactly, a 16GB, quad core, 750W file server? You could do the same thing with an Arm processor and use probably about 30 watts max. Such a waste of resources.. rolleyes.gif
