I should add that I backup my SD DVDs to the WD, as well.
I have no interest in ripping HD/Blu-Rays.

I agree SD DVD quality is just fine for me as well.

Well, I do use physical players for Hi-Def. I just meant that I have no interest (at least now) in maintaining a disk farm for all of that storage.

Or is this the discussion you didn't want to get into :lol:

It is connected to the internet, of course :-) It has firewall on. Also, it's behind the router with firewall. I really don't understand how would I get virus if I don't open pages (2-3 times a year, at most) and don't receive mails on it. Firewalls should block all intrusions? Only if one of my OTHER PCs on the LAN gets infected could I imagine virus danger to my HTPC, but they all have AV.

Any other opinions, I might be missing something obvious? :-)
