Hi, sorry if this has been asked before (couldn't find it) or in the wrong section.

I'm looking for a way to get all my pictures/music/video on a server, able to stream over the network to the xbox360 in the living room, that I then can control remotely.
The idea is to have a laptop or EEE control what is being sent from the server to the xbox; a remote operation of the system.
I'm thinking of a D-Link 323 or LaCie 2big server, but could also use a separate computer with a linux version suitable to do the sharing (ClearOS or Amahi?) and fit it with some large disks.

Appreciate any ideas or experience you might have.

My current network is a mix of wired/wireless with Windows (XP) and Linux (Ubuntu) computers.

Many thanks for your thoughts/help!!
