I feel for you Steve, I just got my first 3 Macintosh computers, having only used one once before to browse a webpage.
Don't know what I was thinkin?
They're very nice to just sit here with and bust your chops about passwords and all, but for some stuff that I barely knew how to do on a PC, well, I'm now that much further behind the learning curve!
Still, they are very nice so probably worth the extra effort on my part.
I've set one of these things up as a small server, which already by the looks of it, will need to be expanded faster then I would have imagined.
My original intention was just be able to access stuff like Pandora and Netflix right through my HT system, and to access my iTunes library, which I never had very much of before but I've been ripping my life to it for the past couple of days. Music is all in apple lossless format should anyone care about that.
I never really considered setting up a full fledged server, but our original intentions, I guess, tend to evolve on us.
So this thing is able to connect to the CB-IIIHD via HDMI and I also have two Macbook Pros, set to be able to share all of that good stuff wherever we happen to be on the network.
A couple of these spots have small systems to jack these Pros into, via HDMI from the Macs mini display port, which can output HD audio and video, although I do not yet have this little adapter.
So right now, aside from an input in the CB-IIIHD set-up to receive A/V via HDMI from this little computer, which I'll use as a server with either some network drives or external drives, only one other Pro is able to jack into one bedrooms audio systems, via it's regular audio output at the moment.
It just connects to a pair of speakers with a sub, but will eventually include the plasma display panel in there via the Macs mini-display port with an HDMI adapter.
More on this to follow.
