Does anyone else find the "Media Server" process eating up a lot of battery? It consumes at least 20% of battery whenever I check the battery usage. I read up a few posts across different forums but nothing helped.

Here's what I have tried:[list]
[*]Formatted the external SD card from within the phone.
[*]Place ".nomedia" files inside folders which don't need to be scanned by the Gallery app. Of course, I couldn't place it inside each and every folder. But I did it for most which had media files which didn't need to be scanned.
[/list]
Thanks.

It works perfectly with the XBOX as well. One click to stream everything over, even the HD videos.

Heh. Damn; I can't even find a use for 16GB onboard. But, I guess if you are into music or taking videos you will need that space. I might pick up one too, when I am really vella :)

Nope. Not me. But, then again I don't have too much music or media.

It works with Xbox? That is awesome! I can't wait to get home and give it a shot. So how exactly do you stream it? I have played files over DLNA on the Xbox from a NAS but I'm not sure how to get the screen mirroring to work.

Yeah that's what I figured. With a few minutes of recorded videos taking over a GB of space. However, the internal memory is filling up pretty quickly with the huge size of games and with no way to move those to external SD, I'm getting a little worried. NFS Most Wanted itself is taking up nearly 2 gigs out of the available 10 GB.

I don't have a single music file on my phone right now. I always listen to online streaming from Pandora or Saavn. And those apps show up separately in the battery usage stats. The only files on the external SD are the photos and videos clicked on the phone itself.

So true, when I purchased my 500 GB HDD I thought how long it'd take me to fill it, now just after 3 years, I have to buy a 1 TB again as the former is almost full. There is only one way for HDDs, and that is only ↑ ↑ ↑

Ever since I got hooked onto HD movies and TV series, I've been filling up nearly 1 TB every year. Already got 2 X 1TB NAS drives full till the brim and a 1.5 TB external drive almost filled up as well.

But with the Note 2 not allowing us to move apps to the external SD card, it remains largely empty. And I don't like watching full length movies or even TV series on my phone.
