you can try this of course. btw, do you have separate subnetworks?
Right now I have 2 entirely independent networks, one for CCTV and one for everything else, but I need to combine everything into one network. The CCTV stuff can stay on the other network while I get this media center stuff sorted though. I want to understand LinuxMCE to a level where I can incorporate a degree of home automation (Z-Wave & X-10) and get at least one Media Distributor PC working with a LinuxMCE Core server. I've asked some questions in the general thread about required hardware levels for each machine and will hopefully get something real going within a couple of weeks.
Right now for LinuxMCE I only have 1 fairly modest PC (by todays standards) that has to be a Hybrid. It's an Athlon3200+ with 512MB Ram, A Radeon 9500 and a 120gb HDD. This is purely for learning on, I'm hoping this PC, with some more memory, can be the basis for my core machine when I build a media distributor PC for the living room.
My UnRaid servers are for my work as well as home use, so I really don't want them going down in a fight over "who's top dog?" in a Samba turf war.
