    I wonder what sort of set-ups forum members have in terms of entertainment for example the living room.

    (tv's, projectors, consoles, cable, pcs, media centers, appletv etc )

    I dont watch much tv, but i plan to setup some sort central media server, have quite got it planed out yet.

    Having a little trouble getting itunes to fit in with everything else.

    I'm prob gonna get WHS (mainly coz they look cool) and store and stream all my media from that. I set one up for a friend and there was a couple of issues with itunes at first, but it was not to hard to sort out in the end.

    You have to strip DRM

    because nothing else will play apple DRM'ed files. I found several plugins i am looking at.
