    Okay, biggest in terms of number of items (songs, movies, TV shows, etc.) or biggest in terms of total library size (gigabytes)?

    Because I must be close on the file size.:D

    How does 2,134 songs take up 1TB? They must be pushing 4 hours each.

    I have about 20,000 songs and it takes up a little over 100GB.

    Good Lord you must rent movies and save a copy of them. Man I can't do it once I see the movie one time I am done with it. Don't want to see it anymore..

    Okay, about me being close... :p

    I'm probably closer on number of items, then.

    Mine is around 100GB, I keep it on a 160GB FireWire external hard drive. My music is around 15GB with the rest being TV shows and Movies. Every once in a while I clean out my library and move things that I don't listen to/watch to DVD, that's just so I can keep it nice and tidy (And continue to fit on that hard drive).

    I like to have a playlist of all my movies and have the AppleTV just play that. no matter when i turn the TV on, there's always something good to watch.

    I was at 23,838 songs last year, I'm down to ~18,000 now after getting rid of a bunch of songs on multiple albums. I also have about 700 movies on digits too.

    That is not normal. He is probably using a cheap usb drive instead of firewire drive, is on a very old computer, or on a computer with minimal ram.

    I'll start the bidding at 1,340 songs, 66 movies, 418 TV shows. :cool:

    Total size: 316.84GB

    All audio is 256kbps AAC, and I have a fair number of 720p TV shows and 12 1080p movies. The rest are standard definition.

    I have two versions of all my songs: Lossless and 256 Kbps AAC VBR. I rip all my CDs as lossless (I store the lossless copy on a backed up hard drive) then I convert them to AAC.

    I don't listen to the lossless versions, they are just there so I don't necessarily need the physical CDs anymore.
