I'm working on a desktop which uses samba shares over wireless, so I've plenty of experience with that. The big thumbnails load instantly unless the hard drive has to spin up, which is fair enough. On the HTPC they're actually stored on, there's no discernable load time at all.
Thanx for the info Duncan. I appreciate all your work immensly.

You've got your Priorities straight, but I second the request for a guide that tells me Im gonna have to redo all my library-work again. ;-)

Here's a great artwork site, it has itunes style, and my favorite part is every cover is sharp and is rid of all the small text that you find on posters (like opening 3-5-02 or the credits) It doesn't have everything but it sure has a lot.

I currently have ~6TB and i am getting 2 more 1 TB drives to replace 2 of my
small aging 250giggers. And i still have about 60 DVDs that need to be ripped
to my file server . It is gonna be a pain modifying the library but so worth it
to upgrade from Aeon/Horizonz to Stark!

@sirreef: I couldn't be happier to give you guys credit! I've probably seen your tag on about 80% or more of the artwork on the site so I totally recognize your name Glad I have a chance to thank you first hand...Thanks a ton!!
It would be amazing to see you get involved with XBMC. On the art/graphics side or coding side.
Thanks again! Hope to see you around.
BTW: Let me know if I can help in anyway, feel free to give me a PM.
Sorry to get off topic djh
@Pr.Sinister :o That's insane! In a good way. Awesome collection, I can't imagine maintaining a database that large, hope you have some good tools to help ya. I do agree Stark is a worthy upgrade though. BTW I would love to see a picture of your HTPC and or server.

Figured I'd post this. It's a page from the PDF manual that'll come with Aeon when it's released. There are exerpts covering preparing your media which I'll post shortly. Hopefully it explains the delay.
Oh, and if anyone knows how to make high quality PDFs in InDesign I'd love to hear from them.

Can't wait for it...That manual even looks stunning.
- ethan_9219 - 2009-02-18 07:35
...As for creating high quality PDFs...
When exporting make sure to choose "Press Quality" as it is higher than "High Quality".
Make sure to turn off all down sampling as well.
But, if the primary distribution method of the manual is a digital PDF, then i think Press Quality might be overkill.
Actually, i'm guessing you probably know what i just wrote, most probably more...So i'm guessing i didn't actually help at all...Sorry

It's nice that it seems that the flaging sytem might just be a simple name change of the file
