WHS 2011 with DVD rips and MyMovies managing them
- one set in folders
- the second in mp4 format
2011 box is also running Plex Media Server which has folders for
various media types such as:
- home movies
- above mentioned DVD’s
Also use PLEX on web, iPad, PC and Android
Jailbroken Apple TV2; small instant on, low power, simple remote which 5 year old runs flawlessly
- native ATV functions
- ability to play folder rips natively
- iTunes Media and iCloud Match music
- XBMC and so much more
Tried WMC, but required real PC and not as easy for kids to operate.
Still using the Zune software and my 30GB brown Zune. X-Box music on the
WMC + WHS2011 (9TB)
Native rips (VIDEO_TS) on the WHS2011 of all DVDs
two OTA tuners for DVR
HTIB 5.1 blu ray player
mini ITX HTPC
Story of how I found a core i7 in the trash room and recycled my desktop into the WHS?
I also want to talk to Chris about his podcasting set up. What can the average Guy learn from us podcasters
Is there a better camera than the C920 for Skype/Hangouts?
- Chris is using the Microsoft Lifecam Studio, you be the judge
- Audio Technica ATR 2100 on a Rhode mount
- MBox 2 preamp + Pro Tools
- VAC + Skype + XSplit
- Cheap mixer to switch between Pro Tools and Audacity
