S1Digital attempts to solve the whole-home video and audio problem

S1Digital introduced what it calls the “Digital Entertainment Platform.” This system uses three parts: “an Entertainment Server, Media Center clients and a control solution.” You load all your content on the Entertainment Server which can support up to 32TB of hard drive space. The server also has a Blu-ray player that can also play CDs and DVDs and supports CableCards. Next up a Media Center client can play content from the server. Their third part of their solution is a touch screen controller. If you’re up for their system, you can buy only one version of the clients yourself for $1799. For the rest, you’ll need to contact a dealer that does home theater installations. Judging the price based on that media center client, you can expect to pay quite the hefty amount to get this system in your home. If you are a geek, you could probably build yourself a pretty great solution using a Drobo, a server, some wired Ethernet, and small PCs hooked up to your televisions for less.
