my husband and I are looking for a solution of storing files and backing these up, and sharing songs in our iTunes Library and films we buy online. We are going to purchase a projector so we want this to also have access to these files so we can view films on the projector. Would this set up work:
Buy a Drobo FS (or a Mac Mini although I think we will need more storage than this can give) which both my husband and myself can store all our files on and which we can both have access to on our separate laptops
Buy external HDs that can daisy chain and connect to the Drobo to back up all the files on there
plug in an HDMI cable from the projector into Drobo/Mac Mini and access the files to watch movies
Would this set up work well and does anyone have a preference between a Drobo FS and a Mac Mini or can anyone recommend a better solution?
