I too am keeping a close eye on this newb thread as I am also a 400 disc (or two) changer owner. I have one 777ES/ Escient cobination that still works great but full and a BDP-960 that is about 1/2 full but slow and clunky. All my equipment is rack mounted waaaaay away from the displays. I need a solution for the eventual death of one of them. What got me thinking about this was a orphan 10 bay Dell server that ended up on my doorstep (free) The HDDs were removed for security reasons so I was planning to install new drives and OS and use it as a file server to perhaps a Dune for each display.
I plan to only power it up as needed using MCE control protocol via tcp/ip so it won't have to run 24/7
Current owner of the last/best AmPro on the planet. The mighty 4600HD, and it's still running...better than Barco's, especially southern ones.
