Making your own iServe

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
With all this talk, you could make your own right now.... get the EyeTV 500 and a HDTV antenna for getting some nice HDTV stream, and get a huge HD along with it, and all you need is an old G4 tower, that is it.

What else would you put in it?

    Well that makes an iPVR, but not really an iServe...

    1) Centralized permissions management based on authentication and per-machine/UID negotiation.

    2) Transparent melding of local and iServe-hosted media files across iApps.

    3) Streaming server.

    Basically, a Server Lite in a cheap low-power HW box, one that relies on ZeroConf instead of DNS, and requires essentially no setup, maintenance, or other server-esque crud. It's more than doable.
