Maybe you can help me out.
I'm trying to install a WHS v1 - just for fun. I do have the license key but the installation media is long gone.
I looked at ebay, but people are charging insane prices for the OS. $100 for a 10yr piece of software. No thanks.
So, anyone having the installation media for a WHS v1?
And, no WHS2011 is not an option - I do have that version available - I'm looking for the original version.
Xbox Video sucks just as much as Xbox Music. Would someone PLEASE make a video player that not only does a good job of playing videos, but also organizing them? Right now Xbox Video takes all your movies and tv shows and throws them all into "other". EXPlay was coming along nicely, but still needed improvement to be functional and now the dev has dropped off the planet. We now have StormPlay, which has some bugs, but he is trying and working hard to iron them out. But we need options. It should look nice I'm a metro-way also, and do a good job of putting movies together and then splitting your tv shows into their respective shows and seasons. Like os said before, eXPlay was looking great and used artwork from each movie and show as backgrounds as you searched through them. It got its information from tvdb and IMDB. Unfortunately the API for those sites has changed sometime ago, leaving that app crippled and the dev seems no where to be found. This is ridiculous though that 7 months later, we are asking for basic media organizational abilities. Don't even get me started on Xbox Music.
I gotta say, I've always been skeptical of 3rd parties hosting my data "for free" because lets face it, when something is truly "free" you're the "product." However, I've found that apps like Seafile and ownCloud just don't have enough functionality. I wanted to make an application that has all of the same functionality of Google, OneDrive, or Dropbox that fits entirely on my home-server. That's why I've been working on a private open-source solution to a very public and closed-source problem.
Support the little guy and try this app. If you're dissapointed open an issue on Github and I'll try to make it better! Thanks for the clicks!
Hey has anyone every used a Thecus N5810 Pro.
Looks nice, am I over looking anything.
I will include a video from youtube about it.

Only downfall I have seen is it may need some Drobo "$$$$$"
Youtube video -
Well I received my shield on Saturday and immediately hooked it up.
1. Setup was painless.
2. The performance was amazing. By far the quickest I have seen from any media playback device.
3. Playback quality was great. I did not see any issues and it played every bit as good as my HTPC.
4. DTS-Ma audio pass through perfectly to the reciever.
1. TrueHD sound tracks still not supported which means 30% of my existing movies do not pass through the receiver and end up playing as PCM not the native sound track.
2. Audio controls are a bit quirky in Plex. There seems to be an overlap in functionality and they do not necessarily behave as you would expect.
Once again we have another one of these devices that claims pass through that does not work correctly. Yes it is the closest I have seen yet but it is not quite there yet. Not sure if I am going to keep this.
