LOL! Trust me, I feel your pain. I have some "reconditioned" ones that I use as backup drives still - Seagate replaced all the original ones I bought due to failure. Stupid ST3000DM001 drives.

I'm with you on this. I like(d) MB2. I still have a PC running it. MB3 was really bad a year ago, but they've come a long way.

I'm glad you said something about this, because I saw it and initially thought "NO" because it is bit tor rent. Now I'll look into it.

That looks like a good solution, adding that to my list to evaluate. Thank you! Only thing I can't figure out is if it requires manual sync. Sync'ing multi gigabyte files manually will mean...

I've been running ATI cards since the early 90's, and CCC takes about 2 minutes to tune properly. I've had a lot better luck with ATI cards than I have with NVidia cards. But with anything, YMMV....

I tried SyncToy a year ago between two PCs on the same network and never could get it to work right. If I were to use it across the internet, I'm assuming it means I have to open firewall rules and...

Media Browser Classic doesn't do games. Game Browser does. MB3 is free, unless you decide to contribute. If you had used MB2 or MB3, you'd see the value. I can't imagine using WMC without it.

Good point. I just wasn't sure what his reasoning was for running a VM, so I wasn't sure if it mattered or not.

How are you going to present MKV files in WMC without it? And even if it worked, the Movies display in WMC is junk.

Right now I am just talking about Media Browser Classic, it's a WMC add-in.

I've had no issues with MB3 or Plex on Roku. I do prefer MB3, it seems to work better across the board. WTVs work, but getting them organized so that they pull the right metadata is a double edged...

As long as the device you are connecting the Celeron NUC to will accept bitstreaming, it and OpenELEC will work.

What is the reason for running ESXi?

Did you know you can set up VMs in Windows 8.1, if you need them?

Actually, your remote should put it to sleep immediately unless it is recording or streaming to an extender.

Vorkosigan, are you sure you have your PC configured to only use S3?

On the client side, MB3 is very well integrated into WMC, so WAF is high.

On the server side, MB3 handles a lot of the work on the back end, rather than on the client PC. And it can transcode and...

Blue Iris doesn't really get too bad until you add a bunch of HD cameras. I have six 3MP cameras and three 1.2MP cameras, at 6fps. If I pop my AMD 610e processor back in the server (which I plan on...

I recommend against a 7200 RPM drive. There is no need for the extra expense, noise, and heat. I'd shop that processor too, see if you can get a Core i3. You can save a little on the case and hard...
