Well, I have been adamantly against HTPC setups, but this weekend I settled on a PLEX Media Server setup, running the PLEX app on all my AppleTV 4K boxes. A friend of mine offered me an insanely good deal on an old server machine he was trying to clear out of his basement: Dell T710 (4U Rack Mount Server) 2x Xeon X5650 6 Core CPUs w/hyper threading (24 total cores) UHD-friendly LG optical drive 136GB RAM 500GB SSD OS/Boot/App drive 8x1.2TB Seagate Cheetah SAS HDs for a total of 8.4TB in RAID5 Upgraded internal PERC (PowerEdge Raid Controller) so that it can recognize HDs larger than 2TB) 4 bay external array and controller card (for growing to larger HDs in the RAID I have CAT6 running from the server into the theater, but the other two AppleTVs will be on WiFi. So I'm currently busy ripping my collection onto the server. I've always liked the idea of having a server, but every time I've been to a friends' place who has an HTPC or JRiver setup, it seems they're always troubleshooting and dealing with driver updates, etc. So this seemed like a good compromise. I'm still able to rip full UHD quality, but I get the advantages of not having to sit through warnings and previews at the start. Who else is running a serious PLEX outfit, or something comparable?
