Hi

I have just ordered a Qnap TS101 500gb nas running slimserver to run a squeezebox 3 to playback all my cds that I'm currently ripping to flac. What does this have to do with a mac you may ask? Well having gotten to like the idea of having all the cds on a single box I got round to thinking was it possible to do the same with dvds.

I'm going to wait to see how much space I have left after ripping the cd collection but was basically wondering if its possible to use the mac to connect to the qnap via ethernet and have the mac access the dvd rips (or whatever, I'm a total noob when it comes to dvd ripping, any pointers gratefully recieved!)stored on the qnap and playback on to the crt tv. So the setup would be :-

Squeezebox 3 hooked up to amp and Qnap

Mac hooked up to standard def 24" tv and Qnap

any idea if this is possible? I just want to be able to access the dvds stored on the qnap. Any help would be appreciated. Assume I know nothing about macs, its about right!
