Windows 7: Media/server computer running Windows 7?

Media/server computer running Windows 7?


Sorry If I post in the wrong section, but....
Ive just brought an Intel NUC D34010WYKH.
I thought I install Windows 7 Pro and use the NUC for the following:

-The NUC will be a media centre, when I power on the TV and the HDMI connected to the NUC is active, I want to be met by a screen allowing me to choose from my movies in full screen. (Wind Media player for this?)
Although when I connect to the NUC from my stationary computer via TeamViewer I want to be met by standard Windows standard desktop.

-Have a "upload" folder on the NUC where I can put movies from my stationary computer via WiFi.
(The program displayed fullscreen on the TV will also be able to see this "upload" folder).

-The NUC will also be a server for some home-automation harware and software.
Z-wave with OpenHAB or Domoticz

Maybe wrong section, but at least some pointing in the right direction please?

Be able to control the home-automation via software button on my Android tablets hanging on the walls.

Thanks in advace!
