I think I am going to just do a second value chassis.
For the record.. I'm not making this stuff up...
Note the term "cage" in the listings.
I get that "cage" might not be the best term to use, but it most definitely is
an accepted term in that context.
If you guys want to keep nitpicking terminology you need to figure out which side of the fence you want to sit on.
The "proper" definition of transcoding doesn't imply real time. The use of it to mean real-time is accepted, but not the proper definition. Just because some chucklehead at plex decided he didn't want to talk about ffmpeg or whatever lame horse**** excuse it was why they decided to do what they did, that doesn't change the term as a whole.
At least I can acknowledge when I've used a term in a manner that might not be the most precise. Wish some other folks (who insist on calling others out) could man up and do the same.
So what's it going to be? Are we going to nitpick and bring up every minor vocabulary snafu no matter how inconsequential it might be to the conversation, or can we act like grown ups and just have a normal conversation?
That said, you're right... backplanes aren't cages. Backplanes are a part of hot swap cages, and as I stated above, if you get a multi drive sata hot swap cage
it most certainly will
include a backplane.
