The other thing I gotta say is that I'm really a huge fan of the Plex. For years I was running a big bada$$ HTPC with Kodi, and thought that was legit. Over the last year I added the NAS and steadily moved all of the house's media over to it. In the last week I ditched the HTPC, and added a Shield and the miniPC (for the MoviePoster app), and I gotta say: yesterday completely finished my conversion. The little remote is awesome, the UI is great, and I'm a huge fan of the interface. The Brother-in-Law and I were going back and forth thru the Oppo, 4k Apple TV, and Shield, and I gotta say that I really prefer the Shield!
That being said, now I have to see what the lifetime membership gets me...
Mann, I almost fell out my chair when Deadpool called Domino “Black Black Widow.” Lol...there were so many lines in the movie that made me laugh out loud, loudly! Sort of a perfect combination of action, comedy, and storyline. As with the first flick, the opening credits are really great!!!
Yeah man, I’ve shunned Plex for years in favor of JRiver.....honestly, without the Nvidia Shield, I’d still be using JRiver—it’s the combination of Plex and the Nvidia Shield that really make a winning combination.

What platform are you using to run Plex and why it vs others?
Can I run the server portion on my Synology DS1817+ or do I need a PC (which will be a huge damper on moving forward). There is a PLEX app in the 1817 but I don't know if it has the speed/processing power to do an effective job. I shall do some research.
Yeah man, if your Synology has Plex, use it. Because I like to test as many scenarios as possible, I currently have two servers running—one with a laptop running the Plex Media Server connected to a WD My Cloud Home NAS and the second is a separate WD PR4100 NAS running Plex inherently. When run through the laptop server, HDMI sync times are haywire for 4K and 1080p content. When run from the PR4100 NAS Plex server, HDMI sync times are non-existent, regardless of content. I’ve never known such immediate 4K images.....Even faster than the Oppo. I say all this to say, definitely run the Plex in your Synology to a NVidia Shield (the Dune may even have a Plex app, since it’s rooted in Android TV operating system just as the Shield is).
