That is my question.... In my house i currently have an old Mac mini G4 running Leopard server connected to airport express via ethernet which in turn talks to my Virgin router and my apple TV3 connected via wifi to the router and then HDMI to the TV (non smart 42 inch plasma) I have been thinking of ways to reduce this to just one or 2 devices. All my content is on a 1tb 2.5 inch HDD. I was thinking of using a roku 3 and connecting my hdd via usb into it? Or get a raspberry pi and usb content? Are there any other recommendations? ideally i would like to pay as little as possible as i have a very small budget (under £100) and i don't really want to go the NAS route. My main requirements are: Quiet (this is a must) Low energy (less than Mac Mini, Apple TV and Airport Express combined) Direct attachment for usb hdd (don't want buffering over the wifi) Ethernet port would be nice. As few devices as possible (hide it behind TV so wife doesn't see!) Thanks in avdvance.
