I'm interested in getting one of these, but admit the technology baffles me a little, so I'm hoping someone can clear a couple of things up. 1. I have (on order) a HD-ready Pioneer 505XDE plasma. I want to be able to store all my digitial photos in one permanent place for viewing through the plasma. Could use flash cards but limited to space on those (I have a LOT of photos). I know you can connect the Showcentre to the Pioneer's media box (by component is best according to Pioneer). I would like to get an external HDD to put the photos on. What would I connect the Showcentre to the Hard Drive with? A USB connection? Are there any factors for buying an external drive? Was thinking of 160GB which leads to the other question... 2. I want to get the Cambridge Audio Azur 640h when it comes out. I'm concerned there's not going to be enough space on it, so may need an external HDD for that too, the same one as above. Are there any issues in terms of connections if I do both of these? i.e. I want the HDD to connect permanently to the 640H and to the Showcentre. 3. How do I get the information (photos from laptop, CDs from on the 640H) onto the HDD? Thanks in advance for any pointers! I don't want a HTPC by the way - already have a laptop.
