Your common DVD is 4.7GB to double that. So even great compression is going to look bad on a nice big screen. Let's just leave it at 4.7GB per movie. That means you need some 5GB of disk space on that server.

Today the drives alone are about 300 bucks (and dropping) so that's 1,500 for the drives and we haven't found the unit to manage all this. Maybe that Apple TV for the player with 5 of the Apple 1TB backup units at 500 each.

Ok, that's 3 grand. All possible today. Here's the question. Would you buy it?
