Hello i am new to this forum (have been reading some for the past few days). I would like some advice and direction Here is what i have. Brand new iMac 3.2 ghz Intel core i3 (21.5"). Eye TV Hybrid. Netgear rangemax wireless router Large ATX case with an AMP processor running Windows NT Gateway Laptop with AMP processor running windows 7 What i want to do is this. Add ext hard drive(s) to the imac using firewire. Would start with 2TB but may need to add more later, i need to also use the Firewire port on the iMac with my digital camcorder from time to time so i might need a firewire hub? I am open to connecting the Ext HD through the router, if that is a better method (NAS?) On these drives i want to load all of my DVD movies and TV shows, would also use them for the DVR content gathered with the EyeTV Hybrid. What i then want to do is add a mac mini, AppleTv or PC to three other TV's in the house that i can use to access the material stored on the Ext hard drives. On the mac i would use either frontrow or plex, on the PC i would use WMC with the media browser plug in. The problems i see with frontrow is that i will need to have my DVD rips in Itunes in order to be able to get any real metadata. I could go with Plex but then i can not go with the AppleTv. I like the AppleTv for its ease of use (best fit for wife and kids). Thank you for any suggestions you may have.
