Making home media server....need some ideas
Posted on 2014-01-06
I have a huge collection of music and films. I'm digitising a lot of those (converting the CD@s to mp3 and DVD/Blu ray to playable format on the pc).
However, I wanted to get a PC which has a lot of disk space (such as around 4TB) on it so that I could also have it Raided in case something went wrong and I lost the data? Or should I just back it up to cloud?
Also, I wanted it to be silent so servers may need to be out of the question due to their noise levels.
I'm also considering using the Raspberry Pi as part of this set up.
Any ideas what I should go for in terms of PC? Do you have any set up recommendations? Let's say the max budget is around £1,000.
