Are ther any DIY kits available? The only music servers I can find on line are like $1000+. I dont really want to deal with streaming my music to my Receiver either, Its too much of a hassle to boot up the PC just to listen to a few songs.


I would really prefere if there was some cheap kit that could do this (I supply case, HDD, screen etc...)


Other options I guess would be:

A: a modded X-box

B: Ripping appart a some sort of portable jukebox, and fitting it in a standard size case to fit in the component rack (move screen/ buttons). Do these unites have IR options?


Thanks for any help.

htpc....mine is on 24/7. You should be able to build a relatively powerful pvr capable pc with big hard drives for less than $800. Put on easy to use front end, add remote control, and then you can add clients with either more pcs or something simple and cheap like hauppauge mvp. and you might as well consider using it for pvr as well, and use something like sagetv (my personal preference).
