What I am building is a home media server, everything thideas stated is correct.

My use of the box in the closet is basically a really fancy external hard drive. I use other devices to watch my media files (hacked apple tv2 with xbmc).

I use my media server to host all media files; videos, music, pictures, and even my documents (word, excel, etc). People often refer to the simpler version of this setup as a NAS or network attached storage.
