What are you doing for storage and access. I'll probably end up with 3-5 clients around the house. Remote access is not an issue nor is it ever going to be. I have a mixture of itunes movies (both redeemed and purchased) and ripped DVD/BluRay. I have a QNAP TVS-871 (i7) loaded up with 6TB HD in RAID-6 (36TB usable). This is used for all of the ripped movies, the itunes movie downloads, music and photos. I'll need more space soon, but that's a horse of a different color. My question is how to get these two systems to work together to have a cohesive media list. Is option #2 below the best option? I can run itunes server natively on the NAS. I have all enterprise gig switches and hardwired ethernet connections at my house, benefit of older work tech going out to pasture. 1. I know that I can 'remove' the drm from itunes movies but at a quality loss. 2. I know that I can import the non itunes movies into itunes 3. I know that I can't play itunes drm'd movies anywhere but an apple tv (which rules out plex) If there is another option, I'm totally game for it. Also, what are you all doing for backups? I have access to crashplan and carbonite through work. It will take YEARS to backup that much data through them. I am close to buying another NAS and duplicating it once a month or so and keeping it in our safe. Otherwise theres AWS glacier but that gets pricey too. Thanks, I'd like to streamline this experience for the family.
