    I am looking for a good Linux Distro and software set for my File/media server supporting DLNA streaming to xbox360 and PS3. I also plan to combine it with my Usenet account as a TV PVR. I also have a TV tuner Hauppague 1850 I may stick in it.

    I generally use Debain *buntu based distros but am open to alternatives that just effin work.

    I plan to set it up as headless with remote access and web admin so suggestions and how to please.

    Specs:
    expect about 4-8 HDDs so when suggesting include RAID or no-RAID with RAID Type Recommendation ( I expect 1/5/10) I dont generally like RAID but will use it if need be.

    If you are planning on that AMD build might want to specify that for HW requirements :) Not sure how far along linux has come with AMD support. Might still have issues with certain kernels.
