I would also want GigE over copper on everything. CAT5e or 6 cabling.
Managed Switches which support Jumbo Frames to get 9K packet sizes.
MythBackEnd/NFS Media File Server:
Opteron Server Platform with at least 2 * PCI-X slots and 3 to 4 PCI
slots and integrated 64bit GigE and low end VGA. 2 * 8 port 3Ware SATA
controller with all drives running unmanaged. Linux Software RAID
across all 16 400GB drives in hotswap caddies. Perhaps a RAID 10
configuration in 4 sets, covered by LVM resulting in 3.2TB of storage
for this rev.
Dual 550W power, backed by two 1300VA UPS. 4GB of Registered ECC DDR.
1 * OTA HDTV card, 2 * PVR250s.
Something custom case wise, combined with centrino CPUs. Heat Pipe
based, diskless, network booting off backend.
