    Is there a limit to the number of roku’s accessing firefly (running one one nas)? ie can firefly serve more then one roku at the same time?

    Depends on the speed of the NAS. But even a NSLU could serve 2 SBs and a Computer simultaneously. A very fast NAS could serve dozends bandwidth permitting.

    a NSLU2 can serve much more.
    Streaming by itself is only limited by the available bandwidth.
    Now when you do transcoding, again the bandwidth (we’re transcoding to RIFF/WAVE) is a limit.

    Only the short time periods when multiple clients browse songs, playlists etc, the CPU usage spikes. But even on a NSLU2 those periods are reasonable small.

    So unless you’re talking hundreds of clients, a regular PC will do fine.
