The Plex Server app on the Shield can most certainly use any network connected storage (or USB or SD card or internal). Already tested that (even though I returned the Shield)

Nice setup. :)

We seem to be moving in opposite directions though... :) I've slowly migrated all my HTPCs to tiny, ITX type systems. Now with 4K, I tried the Shield, which certainly does have...

Not disagreeing one bit. We each have our use cases. :)

My HTPC cost? A $59 celeron ITX board (Asrock J1900) with a 5670 (I think). All told, it's probably comparable in cost to the Shield. But...

I'd prefer not to...if someone's interested in these, I'd imagine they would want an all matching system. That being said, if these don't sell, I'd be more than happy to break em up separately.
