Hello, Im trying to sort out a full media centre to handle all my media needs. Im stuck with options and choices. Things I want media centre to play: Blu-Ray Rips (10) DVD Rips (50) iTunes bought movies (7) iTunes bought TV Shows (4 Series, ~100 Episodes) Online movie rentals. Apple TV 2 Option + Plays previously bought iTunes content. - Computer needs to be on to serve iTunes content. - iTunes awkward to add more external / network drives to store media as has to be added to iTunes library rather than just a folder on the NAS. + Easy movie rentals. - 720P. - Lack of UK content. + £90 - Low power computer to serve iTunes 24-7 (£300 - £400) - External storage (£100) Total £490 - £590 Boxee + Sony S370 Blu-Ray Player (Already own S370) + No computer needed, Can read from NAS etc. - Cant play iTunes content + Easy to use many drives + Easy movie rentals (S370) + 1080P + Plenty of UK content. - £170 + £200 for NAS. Total £370 So as can be seen it looks obvious that the Boxee option is the better choice, but I would lose the choice to play all iTunes bought content. However something is drawing me to the Apple TV as the simpler and more elegant choice. What would be ideal is to rip blu-rays and dvds on my desktop, convert to mp4 and then store on a shared network drive or NAS. Then the boxee can automatically read this straight away and be able to play it, however for the Apple TV the movie has to be added to the iTunes library on a different low power pc (eg mac mini) serving it. Can this be done automatically once a file is saved to a network drive? Am I overcomplicating things? Is there an easier way of doing all of this? Also as I am the UK, there is no new option to stream previously bought iTunes TV shows and renting / buying HD movies is far too expensive. EG for Limitless Amazon Blu-Ray £10 iTunes HD £13.99 iTunes HD Rent £4.49 So financially and for quality, blu-ray ripping is the way to go, isnt it? Thanks for reading this all if you have.
