Windows Home Server with StreamNet technology….

Now how cool would that be!   

I have been beta testing Windows Home Server now for a while, and I tell you what, I would LOVE to see the guys over at Microsoft release a StreamNet plugin for this product that would allow streams of music to be directly pumped out to the Netstreams DigiLinX system.

You can of course already achieve this if you get a DigiLinX Streaming Music Manager 100 unit, it will scan the network share on your Windows Home Server for you, index the music and let you play it around the home, but what I am saying is that it would be far cooler to have this feature “out of the box” with Windows Home Server.

    I totally agree. Why would someone want to buy an additional piece of equipment when they already have the box that can do it. Just need a little software. If I knew the protocol to StreamNet I would write it myself.

    Maybe I am naive, but it looks like the SMM has an embedded XP OS? This would mean that basically the SMM is software . . . why couldn’t Netstreams with a little tweaking making it available for Windows home server? I guess that would eat into the justification for making prospective buyers pay $1,700 for SMM. This home automation industry is the strangest economic model I have ever seen.
