I was going to write to Rudy directly about this but decided to put it here instead.... I know Rood has a media server at Casa Rudy, and there is a thread somewhere detailing what all he's got installed, but I can't find it. I'd like to plunge into that pool myself and am looking for recommendations/suggestions on what equipment is needed and what steps to take to make it happen. Can somebody direct me to that old thread, or maybe we could just start afresh here. My wife is having knee surgery next week so I'm looking for "projects" to do around the house while I'm helping her recuperate, and this seems like the perfect thing to work on.
