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.
8GB RAM
4-8 2+TB HDDs
1.6Ghz+ Dual Core E350 or APU
Hauppauge 1850 Tuner card for QAM recording ( prefer software that will also rip out commercials from streams)
Headless
Not hooking up to TV.
Streaming to PS3/360/Wii/PC
DLNA
MKV support
