I need some advice on building a media centre, preferably Mac based, but open to suggestions. I've around 600 DVDs, over 100GB of music and thousands of photos. Me and my wife, we're always transferring music and photos between the desktop and the laptop, resulting in multiple copies of stuff. Basically, I'd like to consolidate the bloody lot! I don't really know the practicalities of this or if there's some great products out there, but here's what I'd like: A media centre (or Mac Mini) linked to the TV, amp and speakers. All the music and photos on there, viewable through the TV and playable through the amp and speakers. I'd like to copy all of my DVDs to the centre, would be cool if they're searchable via genre, etc. BluRay will have to stay in their silly sized cases for the time being and be played via the player, until Apple decide BluRay is fit for us... Apple TV seems expensive and limited. Mac Mini seems like a good bet, but I'd have to get a lot of external storage. Thoughts?
