    Default Any external media servers for the PS3 ? like a LAN HD server ?

    Hey,

    Have always used my PC as a media (movies/mp3's) server for my PS3 & 360 etc.. and it works well with Windows Media Connect, but what id like is to have one of those LAN External hard drive boxes to use for all my media storage and have it as the server for everything, just dont want my PC on 24/7 anymore as its a killer when we get the power bill

    So is there any external box that hooks up to the LAN that will act as a server for something like this ?

    Any info would be great.. either that or I might have to get a cheapish laptop and use that instead.

    Cheers.

    you mean like a NAS? SOME of them have media sharing capabilities like that, but check before you buy it.

    or just leave your PC on and not have to pay for new equipment :P

    thanks, and yea, but I pay a lot more than buying something new each year in power bills, the PC adds quite a bit with a 850psu I think my PC chews up something like 450w idle.. the joys of having 2 8800GTX's in SLI.
