Does the Terra store the same information that is stored for its drives about the "attached" Strato or Alto. THAT would at least be helpful. When I had my Alto replaced, I lost ALL of my catalogued movies that were not stored on the Alto. A MAJOR bummer since it was about 500 additional movies that I had catalogued.

If you have Strato or Alto players (with storage) in a system with a Terra, or indeed in a system with another Strato or Alto player that has storage, then the cataloged disc information exists on all of those components. If one component were to fail or go offline, the other components would still have that information available.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your cataloged information on the Alto. We have ambitions to bring library information into "the cloud" in the future, both for backup purposes and because it could improve the experience a lot for people who may have systems in more than one home. At this point, though, there's no public schedule for that feature.

That is good news at least.

THAT is good news. I'm no where near the point of needing a Terra but this might push me over the edge to purchase a Strato.
