I'm considering buying a NAS but from the threads I've read there seem to be issues with NFS vs. SMB in streaming HD to the PB. Right now I stream ripped DVD's to the PB which works great with an always on computer through a wired network. I want the NAS to store and stream HD, and have the following questions (I'm a newbie and don't now anything about Linux):
1. Is the NFS vs. SMB just a programming/software issue or is it hardware related (i.e. PB can and will never support a HD stream with SMB)?
2. I'm considering a Linkstation 300gb NAS share with the PB, thoughts and opinions considering it or others NAS ability to add storage, improve to 1gb network connection, etc....?
As always thanks!
