What next ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have WHS up and running, its patched and I have connected a couple of laptops to it, what next, are there any links where I can see some exciting things that I can do with this new server.  Can I use for Media streaming, can I use it as a media centre, can I use it to control home automation products.  Can I use to set up a simple calendar and contact list for out families use.  If any one knows of any links it would be appreciated.

  • Well it all depends on what you want to do with it :-)


    Can you use it for Media Streaming - yep - just go to the WHS Console, click settings, and follow the relevant buttons.


    Can you you it as a media center - not in the same way as MCE at the moment.


    If you get the right add-ins, yes, you can control home automation products.


    Take a look at som of the really great websites;






    They will give you some good ideas as well, along with lists of add-ins and other great info.
