    I am after a NAS device with 2 or more disks with Raid that also doubles as a Hidef media player.

    I know you could easily do this with 2 devices but I just think why pay for 2 power supplies, cases wire etc. When I am sure it could all be put into one nice box.

    The troube is I can not see anything that fits the bill.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Maybe I am missing the point, but QNAP have had such devices for a few years now I have had the TS-209 (2 drive RAID, Twonkey Media player Gb LAN.. and much more) for 2 years now.

    [URL="http://www.qnap.com/Products.asp[/URL]

    If you go for the higher end TS-509 you even get dual LAN connections as well.

    Best regards,
    Mackers

    i think he wants to use the device to watch the movies.
    not just store/share the content.

    think a popcorn hour with room for 2 drives in a raid..

    u could always use a pc of course :)

    I think I am after a box that just "does it all" !

    It think I found something but it is a little pricey!
    Thecus M3800 - Total Media Storage and Playback Device | Overview

    I guess the advantage of having seperate units is noise/heat or hard drives can be kept away from the TV area.

    I know you want what you want, but one very good reason for two boxes is to put the noisy NAS with spinning disks in another room or cupboard and the silent, fanless media player where the AV equipment is...
