I am trying to figure out how did you optimize your system so they all work together.

For example I have an htpc and would like to build a server. Do folks with a server and htpc still keep a hard drive in the htpc or everything is now saved on the server. I currently have a ceton infinitiv 4 in my htpc and I curious as to what folks do for simple TV recordings.

Lastly, when I build my server, i want to use WHS 2011 will this allow to get access to the internet so that I can download plex to the server?

Post is in the wrong forum...(MOD, please move)

As far as a hard drive in the HTPC, I suppose that is personal preference.

I prefer to keep a SSD only in my HTPC, and I've transferred all hard drives to my server for storage.

I would re-create this in the HTPC forum
