Hi Shu,

I posted that a few months back, but since January, have installed and been using Amahi. It's been great! The support on the IRC channel and Forums has been real good and they keep cranking out new stuff all the time. I love it so far and am surprised that it's such a "secret". Anybody who would like to know more can check it out here: http://www.amahi.org/

Ya I know, sometimes it's hard to keep up. I was wondering if you guys plan to incorporate mythTV into your HDA setup. If that could be done, I bet that a lot of new users would come your way. The other feature that would be great is if Amahi could come pre-packaged, out of the box and be used as a web server. I know that there are a lot of security concerns that would have to be put in place, but...... one can hope

Check this thread out at the Amahi forum http://forums.amahi.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=77 . This may help..or not : ). If it doesn't ask your question, they are responsive and helpful.

Right now they are using Ushare for upnp, it works with my son's xbox 360. I have heard there are a couple of hiccups, but I have not experienced any myself, although I don't have occasion to need it much. You can find out about at there web site and forums. Have a look, it's a great product and is getting better all the time

Old thread, but with WHS v2 (Vail) blowing up, I'm taking a look at Amahi. It seems that it works best if the server takes over DNS and DHCP functions. I have FIOS with that actiontek router, and I don't konw too much about networking. I wonder if it is feasible to get Amahi working including DNS and DHCP in that environment. Anyone have experience?


Thanks,


Andy

I have had great success with this product and I have have had no problems turning over DNS and DCHP. It does work best when you let the HDA take over the routers duties. I don't have FIOS, But I did a quick search on their forums and found this http://forums.amahi.org/viewtopic.ph...lit=FIOS#p3782 , among others. There have been some problems with FIOS. I would post a couple of questions on their forums and see what comes up

Hi,


I have been looking at the Amahi home server for a long time. I now notice that it has an app for DLNA through Amahi Tunes.


Here is my situation...just got my home theater hooked up. My blu-ray is a basic samsung 3d that comes in that 55" tv package. It has wi-fi. Currently it is on my network, and I can see my main desktop on there. However, when I hit go view movies, it says there is no video loaded.


Will the amahi server take care of this? Im not familiar at all with DLNA or home networking, but Id like to get some storage and have a server send the signal out. I know I have a lot of reading to do, but Id like to know first if Im going in the right direction.


So, will the Amahi Server with DLNA be able to stream my movies on my network to the blu-ray player to play in my home theater??


Thanks in advance!

Yes is the short answer. DLNA is a upnp server see http://wiki.amahi.org/index.php/DLNA . Amahi also ships with a samba server, which I use for my media frontend. Both will allow you to see your movies and listen to music. It also comes with storage pool technology, called Greyhole http://wiki.amahi.org/index.php/Greyhole . See their wiki for more info, maybe go to there IRC channel and ask a few questions, they are very helpful
