Still In The Running:
- Openfiler - Has not been updated in almost a year, not much traffic on support forums
- OpenNA Linux - Could never find the free ISO file, Seems like the company is primarily pushing their paid solutions
- StartCom - Too many RTFM type answers on the support boards
Thisk Server - Lack of documentation and support
Home Theatre Personal Computer
Out of these choices I am leaning toward a MythTV solution based on limited research. This may wind up being a stand alone computer in my living room (front end / back end) or a split with the back end on the home server. and the front end being on the computer in the living room.
