Hi all, My current setup includes an iMac which I use for all my music, tagged perfectly and run through iTunes. I also have a media pc, running xbmc, which plays all my video content that is stored on a jbod 4 drive Sata enclosure. My media is pretty much all mkv (720p) and avi (sd stuff). Now I would ideally like to ditch the pc for an apple based solution. My thoughts were to purchase a drobo, connect it via FireWire 800 to the iMac, convert all my media to m4v and manage it via iTunes. The purchase an Apple TV and have that in the lounge and stream my media from the iMac. I'm wondering if the process involved in doing this will be worth it for the final result? I would have to convert near on 250 movies and over 1000 tv episodes. Seems like a lot of work. I did a test convert of a 720p mkv last night using handbrake. It took the file size from 4.37gb to 1.31 gb but there was a small loss in quality. I didn't really look to much into settings just wanted to test. This file now plays fine in iTunes, would presumably stream well to the apple tv and I love the fact that I can drop it on my iPhone if I choose. But do I really want to convert all my media? Has anyone done it with a large collection? Was it worth it? Also what are the chances that the new apple tv can be modded to play other file formats? (probably no one knows until it's out, I assume.) To be fair the media pc and xbmc have worked well, but it would be nice to do away with a pc in the lounge (and altogether for that fact!) and a small apple tv that can be easily powered on and off by remote would be nice. (can't do that with the pc). The iMac is always on anyway so thats not an issue. Just canvassing thoughts really before I decide to go for it.
