    Hi

    Have been looking at various software that might work to bring all my music, video and pictures together that could be shared through the house on various wired and wireless pc's and came across this athough complete overkill for what i need it did look pretty good

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2176025602905109829&hl=en


    Anyone on here have a way of sharing content on there home lan rather than the normal server route ?

    thought about just having a NAS drive and sharing that way but would like it to display as video / cd covers for selecting the items

    I have never even played with anything like that so don't know much about it. I don't even know what all capabilities the following has, but have you looked at MythTV? It might do what you're wanting to try. I know a couple of years ago it had a reputation for being very difficult to set up, but I think most of that is past now as it's possible to install mythtv binary packages in many distros. Debian's Sid release has more than 20 packages related to MythTV in the software respositories.

    Here's the list of packages generated by "apt-cache search mythtv".

    Code:
    mythtvfs - userspace filesystem client for MythTV
    libmyth-0.20.2 - Common library code for MythTV and add-on modules (runtime)
    libmyth-dev - Common library code for MythTV and add-on modules (development)
    mytharchive - create and burn DVD's from MythTV - binary file
    mytharchive-data - create and burn DVD's from MythTV - data files
