    Default DVD Jukebox

    Hi,

    I am looking for a DVD Jukebox. I have noticed that there is an article on this site showing how to build your own but I want to buy one "off the shelf"

    I need about a Terabyte of diskspace. Any suggestions/recommendations chaps?

    Thanks

    Trev

    Kaliedoscope do one but it is expensive.

    You may find that building one yourself is the best option.

    1 Terrabyte is not much really, how many dvd's do you have / want to store and in what format?
    Cheers

    You can buy a 1tb NAS like this...

    There are plenty of media players that can stream straight from that sort of storage.

    If you go down the build your own server route, then have a look here. www.serverelements.com . I built a server using their software on an old 450Mhz AMD-K6 processor with 64Mb of memory. It took about a few hours to do most of this was down to the formatting of the disk drive. The hardest part was actually trying to find a floppy disc as I don't use them any more. They do a version that runs from a USB stick so if you get a cheap one of these then it might be better. So you could start off small ie one 250Gb drive and then add 3 more as and when. Its worth looking at if you have an old pc lying around like I did.
    I use mine as a media server and use my house pc to stream the media to my showcenter. Works very well. Infact I've just bought a 250Gb drive to install into it. As the 80Gb it came with is almost full.
