Hey guys, looking for a bit of advice to set up an RPi as a NAS/Media Centre hub. My flatmate has had an RPi sitting around for the past year doing nothing so I figure this is as good a use for it as any. I know there's an XBMC build available for the Pi but don't have any experience in using it or what it can do/how easy it is to set up. Basically what I want to do is attach the Pi to an External HDD for storage which me and my flatmate can access over the network (preferably Homegroup so it's just drag&drop) to place files into. I know XBMC can use SAMBA to access Homegroup storage but it was unclear if it could act as storage. The next issue is controlling the thing. Best way to do this would be via a smartphone program however I use Android and he uses iOS so not sure if there's one program that can do both. Anybody know if this is possible in XBMC? I'm relatively used to dealing with Linux but I'm not sure how much fiddling I can run in the background of XBMC or how to do so. Another idea I've had is to try to set up a script which checks a folder every night for torrent files and downloads them overnight. That might be a bit beyond me though.
