  • I am looking to install a blu-ray drive on my EX-470. I currently have an external DVD player(xbox HD-DVD) using my movies and anyDVD.
    it works great but looking toward tommorow.
    any help or direction would be apreciated

  • Well, using your server as a desktop is unsupported, and an HP EX47x is fairly underpowered for use as a Home Theater PC. But if you can get the HD-DVD player to work, I can think of no reason why the Blu-Ray player wouldn't.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Are you using the drives for playback or archiving? I would rip to the server from another machine on the network, might even be faster than a local archive creation. The HP server doesnt have video out so Im assuming this is not being used for playback.
