For the last entire year I used a Synololgy 2 disk NAS and WD TVlive for a media player
on a 110" screen front projected. Worked perfect with no problems. The cost was about $300.00 + drives.
This year I junked my Synology and went to a ThinkServer TS-140.
The TS-140 at $215.00 is excellent. It will allow for easy drive expansion
to accommodate any future size.
So, Thinkserver TS-140, WD TVlive, Mezzmo software, still comes out
to about $300.00 + whatever size drives you buy.
The Thinkserver is the quietest PC I have ever used. You can't hear it period.
Mezzmo software is not needed for this to work but I like using it.
Nothing I've seen yet plays everything I can throw at it like a WD TVlive.
This setup works really really good with no problems so far.
