I have thousands of dvds and vhs tapes. So many so its become impossible to store them. I just finihed building a video jukebox and am transferring my movies to it.

Its a searchable jukebox powered by a wireless network so I can access my films anywhere in my house. Total cost was around $400 to build it. So now when im trying to find a movie I just turn on my tv, and do a quick search and hit play...

Equipment used:

- dsm320 media player
- wireless router
- 2 terabyte drive ( holds thousands of movies in VCD format )

Can you tell us a little bit more?  Like, how you set it up and everything.  You've got my full attention.

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

Where in the name of Philo Farnsworth did you find a 2 terabyte HD?!

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

Alienware makes a HD system with a built-in 2 Terabyte hard drive. Someone just told me about a 4 terabyte stand-alone external drive, but I'm not sure who makes it or where you can get it.

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

Can we please get some more pics?  Please?

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

Awesome collection, man!  Mostly VHS, but I see you got some good titles in there.  Thanks for the pic.

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

ya, i dnt have the money to replace vhs with dvds, so i just keep the vhs versions, if they aint broke, dont fix em

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

Ha, yea I have some movies on VHS that I still havent bought up to DVD yet.. Creepshow 2 being one of them.. I really got to buy the special edition DVD of that one of these days though

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

I have a bunch of VHS tapes, but most of them aren't horror.  "The Exorcist", "Alien", and "Jurassic Park", to name a few.

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

i loved jurassic park so much i had to get it on dvd.  then my fiance had them on dvd, and i still have them on vhs.  so i have three different copies: vhs, special edition dvd, and collector's edition dvd.  lol

I couldn't get the picture to display, so I posted a link.

This is my collection about 1 year ago. I have moved since then and my collection has grown. The link is to a posting from a website where I entered a contest for best DVD collection. I lost.

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

Here is the stuff that wouldnt fit on my shelves. I gotta cleanup my dvd closet and take a picture of it. The stack is 7' high and goes completely across the wall i figured the one picture kinda makes the point didnt need to try and get it all lol

As for my video jukebox, a 2terabyte drive is not the biggest you can get for non-commercial use. The biggest is 4 terabyte. 4 Terabyte is external where as 2 terabyte is internal.

The setup is pretty simple as well

- wireless mediaplayer on my network
- vhs / dvd player hooked up to system
- backup to mediaplayer in dvd format
- now have a searchable video jukebox with remote control.

I have to complete transferring all my videos which is likely going to take me awhile....

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

SAy you want to watch that movie thats, 4 piles to the right and 14 up from the bottom. How do you get it out of there without knocking over your piles? hmm smile

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

haha this is the pile that doesnt fit into my nice shelving. This pile is what i am currently transfering to digital smile Its a BITCH to try and watch anything at the bottom of this pile but its temporary

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

Good thing it's temporary. I bet it's a bitch... It looks like its going to take along time to transfer all your DVD's over to your jukebox.
That what my cd collection looks like and I know how much a pain in the ass it is to get to the bottom.

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

Greg - Awesome collection, man!  I love the Freddy Krueger standee... Or, whatever it is.  tongue

Meh - That's a shitload of DVDs and VHS.  Nicely done, my man.  Although, the organization could be a little better.  tongue

Thanks for the pics, guys.

Tim its only disorganized till its digitzed and then its fully searchable. smile

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

those are some bad ass collections. i really need a job to expand mine more, theres alot of movies i love that i dont have the money to buy.

oh and Tim, i still buy alot of vhs because ill go to used movie stores and they are cheaper than dvd's but its still a good movie. i need to get a job so i can buy more dvd's than vhs tongue

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

That's understandable, deathgate.  I wasn't criticizing you or anything, just something I noticed.

Come on, people.  I know there are more collections out there.  Post em'!

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

oh, no its allrite, i was just stating why i have alot of vhs, wasnt mean to sound mean or anything.

Re: Post a pic of your DVD collection!

HOLY FUCK MEH! 

Well, once I find the cable that connects from my camera to my PC, I'll post the pics.
