    New here - first post. Considering moving from my SageTV system to NPVR

    I highly recommend unraid. U can run an unraid 3 drive system for free. I currently have 4 1.5 TB drives and 4 1 TB drives running for all my archived recordings, DVD, bluray, etc.

    Unraid is optimized for media and really shines in that area. I have had 4 different blurays streaming to 4 tvs in the house while recordings HD were being recorded from hdhr, and not so much as a single skip or stutter.

    Unraid is a sorta psuedo raid 4 with a parity drive..

    Def check it out. It's pretty awesome. Bit runs my entire house media and my subsonic server.

    HP don't provide drivers for SBS2003, but the MicroServer thread on AVSForums gives reasonably clear instructions on how to get around that...

    Bear in mind that last post was from 21st December 2011...

    Round about the end of August 2012, I installed SBS2003, stuck in two 2TB disks and put it back in the box...

    Sometime in November 2012, I took it out of the box, moved it up to the attic and switched it on...

    Yesterday, I moved most of my machines over to the new domain server - I've left one on the old server for the moment - just in case...

    Lazy bugger or what?
