I was also looking at WHS - for a home storage, web server, blah blah - essentially something that is easy to manage without a telnet session or be friendly like WHS, unraid or something like that. I only need redundancy for 100GB (like pics, docs, etc...not movies)

I plan to do some upgrading in the couple of month and need to build myselft a new mATX rig, a SFF Mini ITX HTPC, and ATX server/Nas.
Actually it's even simplier than that. If your ps3 is turned on. It will automatically connect to it. Just setup the share / folder for the media you want to share and your done. I believe the idea is that it will only transcode when necesarry so if you have media properly formatted for the ps3 it won't transcode but just pass it through. I have tried it with video ts folders, mkv's and avi's. they all worked fine.
and now for something completely different
