Default Linksys Media Hub

I have been looking to get or build a NAS and then I come on to this.
Linksys Media Hub starts about 199.00 on up.

Here is a link http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/...ep-MH-Overview

Media Hub features & highlights:

1. two-drive SATA unit with optional RAID 1 support
2. LCD display for status and monitoring
3. Support for 3 simultaneous HD streams
4. “intelligent” media aggregation and consolidation
5. simple browser interface for media playback and overview
6. 2 USB ports, SD MS and CF card slots, gigabit Ethernet


If anyone has one please let me know how you like it.

Well looks great on their web site.. I guess if you don't want to build your own you use their gear. Plenty of free stuff online to make your own NAS box like OpenNAS (FreeNAS) http://www.freenas.org/ Tons of PVR software also online. Still not going to be cheap to buy the Linksys Hub gear, but hey whatever you do you'll be happy with gear!

OpenNAS been playing round with and works all right. Been demoing Windows Home Server (WHS) like that cuz the wife and kids can backup without me So I need something the is wife and kid friendly. I run Server 2003 at the house now but this is more of a test bed for work maybe I will just go that route.

WHS is Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition with some extra bells.. Server is use to maintain my file server and web server. Next to that I have HTPC 4th one I've built. Both are on 24/7. I use SageTV 6.9 to record on 3 tuner cards I had 4th one but that had stop working. I also use WebServer for SageTV comes with TV guide more like media center web version. That same system has Hauppauge Media Server so manage of it's 7x media player clients. I use Arcronis Enterprise Server to backup everything to myimage.tib, that's about it. These images can be mounted as virtual drives also. Pretty easy to use.
