Nah, was going to earlier but I don't have a spare unless I want to undo all the cabling I've already organized.

HDMI cables are so cheap you should have 30 spares. What are you, poor?

I probably have one around here somewhere. I'd rather order a new one than look.

Got my two fresh Ultimate installs yesterday. Never used XBMC. Thinking about picking up a Logitech diNovo Mini Keyboard instead of using a mouse and keyboard, since I have nowhere to put the mouse to use it and having a big keyboard sucks.

I haven't used it either but it's nice to learn something new while over-complicating the process. I went with the Logitech K400 because it's cheap and has a touchpad.

I've been reading about Plex and integrating it with XBMC. Seems like it's a bit more than I need.

Oh wow super cheap. I was also looking at diNovo Edge but it's still a full size keyboard (which I'm trying to avoid).

Was going for cheap, touchpad and wireless and that diNovo looks nice but no way would I go fullsized for HTPC and holy **** expensive on the mini-keyboard.

What software are you going to be running?

Edit: Nevermind.

XBMC would be good for the HTPC application but I'm not sure how nice it would be as a file server.

Probably just FTP it and use XBMC for the front.

Gotcha. If you run XBMC would you be running it in Windows, or running their ubuntu-based (IIRC) OS?

Gotcha.

I have yet to find an FTP setup I like for win7 so far. The built-in service sucks a bag of dicks.

I'll probably just roll with Filezilla in keeping with the free/open source theme. I'm not expecting it to do much other than play back videos. If I can get the FTP/Remote clients to work I'll be one happy clam.

I used Filezilla for a bit. It was okay. Didn't really have a ton of options or a particularly good interface, though. Good as a client, not so much for a server.

If you're just doing local stuff with one or two computers you should be fine, though.

I'll just share the drives for local stuff and have it as an option for being out of town, not looking to use it daily as that's what Dropbox is for.
