What interesting things are people using their WHS for?

Anyone running Harmony Home Automation software or doing anything interesting with their game consoles connected to their WHS?

Thanks

im in the process of specing my server hardware.

will be using it to supply blu-ray, hd-dvd and dvd movies to my media pc via the 'mymovies' app

one question i do have is, i play to run a 8TB raid 5 config but i already have 2 1tb drives that are full up.

will i be able to add these in full up or will i need to store the data and transfer it to the server after i have installed every thing

"i play to run a 8TB raid 5 config "

you cannot run a raid system with whs

the os configs the drives as just a bunch of discs

And you can add more to the storage pool as you go along

But that's the beta version for WHS still right now isn't it?

I didn't think the full version was available yet?

IIRC, WHS will wipe any existing data from a drive when it's added to the pool, so you'll need to add some empty drives first and copy the stuff over before adding your currently full drives.
