So the EX470 itself cannot stream media to the TV and would require something like PH or WDTVLive to grab media from the EX470, in that case what makes it any different from a PC with network shared drives or usb drives connected to Media player?
Correct, the MSS is not meant to be connected directly to a TV. You are corrent that you could just have a PC connected directly to the tv with network shared drives. The MSS runs WHS whch is different then say an HTPC running W7. For one, with WHS you can add multiple drives and it will all be viewed as one big pooled drive. With W7 every drive you add is its own drive, so you need to add separately. Also, if a drive fails you lose data. With WHS you get data redundancy with its duplication feature. You would need to have your PC running some form of RAID if you want to get the same type of feature, and RAID would not apply to any external USB attached enclosures. Hope that makes sense, feel free to ask any more questions.
