I have a little dilemma about a project I'm thinking about and seek advice from those that has a media server for their macs. For my current setup, I got a mac mini with 3 1GB usb drives connected to the mini, but the cluster of wires and stack of different external drives is not a beauty to look at. So comes my conclusion of getting a media server, but I have no idea how its going to work. I'm thinking of getting one of those HP media server or building my own based off Ubuntu or XP. So for those who have a media server, I kind want to know how the compatibility work between mac and other brand servers. How does streaming works because I plan on using Boxee, IE the user interface?
