    I've burned all of my classical music collection to flac and am happy with the sound quality. I've installed and, after a lot of fiddling, find Plex to be merely okay for my purposes. I use my own local media assets and don't really want any help from an agent, like last.fm. In other words, my...

    I don't know if I am headed down the right road or not, but I was looking for music server and man those things are expensive. I am seeing them costing $2,000 and more. Crazy! I have built several computers over the years, so surely building a music server can't be all that hard... can it...

    Afternoon all! The time has come for me to really start looking at building my own music server. I am not really looking to do a full-on HTPC as I prefer the physical disk for movies (cannot really explain why - perhaps it is the old VHSer in me. :)) - I just want to have a main location for...

Goals were to consolidate storage as a file server, do HTPC duties, and serve media to other devices, such as our tablets and Raspberry Pi's. I decided on a system built around the...

    I am set up in a Home Network, with a dedicated server storing the media, a Home PC running JRiver media server software and a Denon AVR4310ci streaming the audio, all ethernet connected to the home network. Would the receiver be suceptible to jitter under this set up? I don't know if the...

    I'm looking to find an easy way to store and play my movies in my theater. I have a Mac mini and an x box already in my theater. How can I use these devices to make movie and other media watching easier? I've heard of XBMC but have never used it. Is adding extra storage difficult to either of my...
