linux based nas and xbmc and mp101


I currently stream my movies and music which are located on my two computers to my xbox running xbmc to watch on my tv. This system uses samba to share between the pcs and xbox. I would like to install a nas drive to increase storage but also to run indepently of the computers so i dont have to have them switched on. Ive heard that some nas drives can run linux and therfore i could set my smb shares up on that. Has anyone had experience of this setup and/or can recommend a nas that suits my requirements.

thanks, John

Are you looking for a prepackaged solution with hardware and software all set up? Hardware to run linux?

If you are using smb or cifs, would you be satisfied with a product that served those protocols?
