Linux My Budget Media Server...
#13
Unfortunately the SSD was DOA. It was being sent by a guy I know in Sweden and I think either the Swedish postal service or the Royal Mail had been using it as football. Anyway I am now using a 2TB for my first Movies drive, another 1TB drive for a second movies drive and a 1TB for TV shows.

I was using ethernet over mains adaptors to network the house, but since I have upgraded to a Gigabit router I have now installed a Belkin 5 port Gigabit switch behind my TV which connects the server, my RPI2 and my retro games rig to the router and I am installing a Cisco Systems Catalyst 2960 8 port switch in the loft to feed into the RPI Model Bs I have in each bedroom. I will also put a Netgear N150 wireless access point in the loft to give better wifi coverage to the upper story of the house.

The Cisco switch also has a fibre channel port and I have scored a couple of fibre channel cards, so my plan is to use an old Acer Aspire X3200 as a proxy/OwnCloud server, once I get my head around fibre channel.

All of the above is all being done using kit that was heading for the skip just because it was old.
HTPCs: RPI 2B & 3B+ running LibreELEC 9.x.x
Control: Google Home + Broadlink RM Mini 3 + OSMC Remote
Audio: Pioneer VSX-819HK & S-HS 100 5.1 Speakers
Server: Acer ASX3400, 3GB RAM, 7.75TB, Xubuntu 18.04, NFS, MySQL
