I'm looking to set up my HTPC as a device that can be accessed anywhere via internet connection, and more importantly, via iphone / ipad.
I have been looking for a reason to get windows home server, and this may push me over the edge if it integrates better than with windows 7.
Basically, I have about 2.5tb of storage on my HTPC that is full of movies, pictures, documents, etc. I would like them to be accessible easilly (aka, my wife can get at them) with an internet interface, and iphone / ipad app. The ability to stream music and movies is a plus.
My HTPC is a windows 7 ultimate machine, and I'd like to move all the storage off that device to some sort of NAS on a windows home server, but, if I can do what I want with my existing setup, then that is fine also.
