What Is Your Ultimate Home Network?
Posted 07 May 2003 - 02:54 PM
Here is what I am in the process of building -
Entertainment Center in the Den:
- hacked DirecTiVo hooked up to 10/100 LAN
- hacked xBox hooked up to 10/100 LAN
- 27" TV
- home theater with surround
Home Theater in Basement:
- Panny projector with 78" 9x16 screen
- Home Theater PC
Server Closet in Basement:
- Linux/Samba File Server with .5 TB storage
- DSL Modem
- Patch Panel
- 10/100 switch
- My Windoze PC for work
- Wife's Windoze PC for web and email
Home School Room:
- Kid's Windoze PC for educational software
When the price comes down I also want to add a tablet PC to carry around the house to use as needed via Wi-Fi.
Also, I plan to finish my MAME cabinet and put it in the basement once the other side is finished (the home theater will take a year, so this is WAAAAY off).
My kids are 4, 2 and 3 weeks, so their computer needs so far have been limited to Reader Rabbit and Blues Clues, but I expect that to change soon as my daughter gets more and more into the PC.
My wife and I thought of adding X.10 cameras with sound to the network to keep an eye on the kids when they are sleeping, but the reality is that our $50 intercomm that we use today works great, so why bother?
So, what would you add?

XeroKitsune - I know they have webcam that just take a RJ-45 connector, they have their own built in web server, and all you have to do to look, is point your browser towards the address.
