I've been using three; well two 985's and one 995 of the Sony Jukes for the past seven years or so now and they have all filled up. I control everything right now with my prontopro tsu7000. (Thanks to those that contributed graphics) Anyways I've been ripping DVD's onto my PC for awhile now in hopes of upgrading into a new system. I don't have the big bucks for a Kaledescope (sp?) system. Last I looked they were way way too expensive. I'm also looking for something with petabytes of storage capacity. Building my own server is no problem. My problem is I am unfamiliar with 1. the best way to network this to my plasma. 2. what software to use...I enjoy the GUI of the higher end products, but I guess I'm wondering where to start. Excuse my ignorance on this subject...computer savvy, but just not in this niche. Thanks in advance for any help.

My Movies / WMC is always a good option and it's probably the most cost effective.

I just installed a vortexbox here, and I am enjoying the hell out of it.
