|What my network started looking like after about a year.|
The left side middle shelf holds my Brother all in one lazer printer.
The right side middle shelf holds my entertainment distribution center, centered around an Onkyo TX-NR626, it also includes my Roku3, a Samsung Bluray player, analog cassette deck Panasonic HTIB (which is only being used for its VHS player) an Xbox 360 (not currently connected) and an 8 port linksys switch.
On the bottom shelf lives 5 desktop computers (currently not connected) my Ooma, and an external laptop hard drive enclosure.
|The network mostly cleaned up.|
I have not determined uses for all of the computers yet, but one of them contains my entire DVD collection of over 500 movies, so that one will be a media server. One will be used just as a regular desktop computer, one will be an asterisk server. The other 2 I have not yet determined what to do with them.
|The entertainment shelf.|
This is a slow moving, ever evolving project. The AV distribution system is nearly complete. I just need to connect the Xbox to the system (or its replacement if I decide to get a new gaming system)
I actually placed a small (8 to 10 inch) fan behind the AV shelf blowing air out the front of the cabinet connected to a switch on the side of the cabinet to prevent overheating of my Onkyo receiver.
