I was mostly referring to movies. I rip DVD's and store them on a  
media server in my basement so they can be watched on the main LCD TV  
in the Living room or their our own machines in their bedrooms. They  
also have access to all the music in my library (about 400GB of mp3's  
that I've ripped from CD), 1TB of recorded television shows (a  
mixture of HD and standard def), all the photos I've taken in the  
past 4 years, MAME ROMS, current news of their choice. Plus, we can  
stream recorded TV and music over the web onto our laptops when away  
from home, or download a video podcast to my iPhone or one of our  
video iPods to watch while we're on the go (great for my son's long  
bus ride to school when that's in session or our long plane rides  
when we visit family on the opposite US coast). This is why I  
switched from Tivo.
