Here are the requirements, which are mainly for video:
- must be able to play files from NAS (currently two ReadyNAS) ex: avi, iso, mkv, mp4 etc.
- up convert to 1080i/1080p
- would be really nice if it could be presented as Media Library, with images, actors etc (rather than just directories and files (TVix can do this but there just too much manually intervention to set-up and maintain for my liking)
- as for streaming: must include Netflix, but would also want Vudu, Amazon and possibly Hulu, then if available any of the steaming TV channels.
- should be a product that the company is actively supporting ongoing development and releases, and always great it has an active user-base.
I have considered Plex running on Mac Mini, but don't like the fact, that as far as I can tell, it will not include files in the library that it cannot find in various online databases.
So any ideas, suggestions would be welcome.
thanks in advance.
