Looks great! Nice job.

I like that case too. Does it have 15 hot swap bays in that configuration?

EDIT - of course it does. Just should've looked at the links more closely.

i am probably going to be running VM at some point because that seems to be the easiest way to setup pvr functions and configuring a cable card tuner without having to have a separate box running.
but for the moment i am not and im not sure if im going to go for an internal tuner or go with a network attached tuner yet but my general preference is internal installed devices rather than having yet another box taking up shelf space so im leaning towards Ceton InfiniTV 6 or Ceton InfiniTV 6 ETH.
