There comes a time in everyones life when they get old and just want to watch the Simpsons all day – every day.
I wanted this, but I didn’t want to think too much about it after i’ve set it up. I don’t want to have 30 remotes and I wanted something that would index all of my media and make it easy to find and play what I have in my collection.
To achieve this I used the following hardware and software:
- *HP Microserver N54l
- 4x 2tb hard drives
- 1x 64gb SSD (for OS)
- Thermaltake max 5 duo (allows 2.5in ssd and a 5th 3.5in disk)

- Astrotek PCI-E 2x SATA expansion card
- Ubuntu Linux
