All these tiny boxes - how do you arrange them in your rack?

I have a growing number of really small pieces of equipment. Roku, Steam Link, NUC, and less small, a Wii and a Wii U. Right now everything is just sort of stuffed wherever it makes sense in my...

Well, that's my own setup. I'm just recommending SMB/NFS as an alternative to DLNA, however you do it. Some BR players support it. I know the Oppos do. In fact, the Oppo, even an older model,...

I find DLNA to fall flat in a lot of areas. It's a nice idea but in practice it's sorely lacking, and depends so much on your network and all your devices. I have gone over whole hog to a NAS...
