I want to be able record the over the air shows that aren't available. We currently use the interface on the TV or the DVD player and it's a PITA, I'm thinking that using this for amazon prime, Netflix might be easier.
Are you wanting to get rid of your satellite and just do OTA? If so, that should work well. Definitely need storage for an HTPC. Not sure you really need a NAS though, as it isn't really critical data. I would just get a big WD Green drive or two unless your case has limited space.
I just got an Amazon Fire HD. It is pretty sweet. Just using it with Amazon Prime and Netflix right now, though they seem to have most of the same movies.
I also have a Raspberry Pi. They work pretty well for streaming, but can't be used as a DVR replacement I don't think.
I hope to go with OA Amazon Prime and Netflix. I'm on the fence about the NAS at this point, it would be nice to have a place where my wife could put all of her pictures from various locations. At this point I will keep my eyes peeled for deals on a drive that will be needed for the DVR storage.
I'm still reading up on what programs will be best for recording, I'm sure I'll have more questions.
