I want XBMC for my primary HTPC... but I want Plex for its transcoding and mobile apps... and I want a NAS to store everything. I think I've figured out how to get it all, but I just want to run a sanity check.
NAS - I've decided on the Synology DS1512+. I'm going to get that soon. Great NAS, but the CPU isn't fast enough for Plex's transcoding so that brings me to...
HTPC - I'll build one based on an i5 or something similar, and I'm going to rub Ubuntu with XBMC. XBMC can play all of my video files off the NAS.
Plex - I'll actually run Plex Media Server on the HTPC itself. It will read the files from the NAS, but it will do transcoding on the HTPC. This way, I can view all of my content remotely w/ the Plex mobile apps.
Any flawed logic in this setup? Thanks!
