I am about to revamp my audio setup using the Slim stuff as a key component.
This leads me to wonder if I should simultaneously implement some kind of
WiFi-based video streaming solution, and rip up all my DVDs and home video
to put on the same media server (let's assume that storage is not an issue).
I don't see that Slim has any hardware to help with this. Anyone have any
experience/suggestions here?

Hmmm. No specific slim-related guidance... but I'm with you on the 'all
media should be on a server' plan. Sadly... I've nearly filled by 1TB
array, doing just that ;(

But... it's cool. Movies can play up in the office, or to the laptop
over wireless, or downstairs on the Plasma TV. Personally... I stick a
mythtv box down there, and use that as a TV browsing front-end, along
with an IR keyboard. That also solves the 'I need to look something up
on IMDB, but I can't possibly leave the couch' malaise ;)
