I searched and didn't find any answers, so please forgive me if this is a repeat.
Anyway, I have an older computer that I'm using as an HTPC, and I was hoping that I could use it as a NAS/multimedia server, as well. My primary uses would include accessing content on my PS3 (same LAN), accessing content from other computers on my home network and (if I can) accessing content from my Android phone over the internet.
I have used SubSonic to stream music to my Android phone and other computers before, but I would really like to find a way to do this natively if possible. I know that I can buy external hard disk cases that can plug in the USB port of my router, that I can get a Drobo or other network storage solution, but I would really just rather not spend the money (especially considering that I already have a computer that I should be able to use).
- Apple AirPort Extreme base station router (most recent revision)
- Home Theater Personal Computer: Core 2 Duo @ 2.4GHz, 8GB DDR2 RAM, ~3.5TB hard drive space
- Sony Playstaiton 3 Thin 120GB
- HTC Thunderbolt (I have 4G coverage) rooted and running Android 2.2.1
- Various Apple laptops
- Various Windows 7 desktops/laptops
Thanks in advance!
Note- I have looked at open source NAS software but I would like to preserve the Windows Media Center functionality in Windows 7, so other NAS software is not an option for me currently.
