I’ve personally been umming and ahhing for a while now on if I should make the move to WHS 2011 or stick with my trusty WHS v1 for a little while longer.  But with the recent round of price cuts on the OEM price of WHS 2011 this has made my decision even harder.  Newegg.com are […]

Last year forum member erail posted a message about how he converted a demo EX470 to become an MediaSmart Server Port Multiplier giving him a matching port multiplier for his EX470 and he did a fine job.  Inspired with what erail had done I decided to do the same and since then I have converted […]

I’m very pleased to announce that today I received notification from Microsoft that I have been presented with the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award for Windows Home Server for the second year running. However, it gives me greater pleasure to announce that MediaSmartServer.net now have a third MVP on the team as Damian (dbone1026) […]

Back in March I wrote about AdminiMe 2010 written by Windows Home Server MVP Nick Asseloos of Asoft.  Nick has been hard at work on improvements to AdminiMe and fixes of issues reported by users.

Maybe I am alone, but I find that especially when it comes to technology it is never just one thing that goes […]

Forum member “crzyhomer″ has uncovered a little known fact with Windows Media Connect in that you can only have 10 “Allowed” devices. His issue manifested itself when adding a new Playstation 3 to the network and he received a “Media Server Error: DLNA Protocol Error 501″. To see how many devices your server has registered […]

With CES 2010 taking place this week, I thought it would be a good chance  to get some feedback from our readers, what new gadgets/technology are you hoping to see introduced? Is it the latest smartphone, the next iGadget, an affordable robot to replace your spouse, or maybe you are just looking for simple products […]
