Maybe you all have great recolection of episodes youve watched , but my memory isnt , at least not only by seeing an episode title
The dune solo , has better picture quality and better audio , and better 3d quality then the med , so the dune has better technical specs , but lacks in features , (my opinion)
You have to approach the whole media storage, playback and cataloging with an order of priority. For me the order is as follows:
- Storage and security of media in case of HDD failure.
- Navigation of media, cataloging and visual feedback of my media. (Episode Thumbnails and Overview / Description)
- Playback devices. There is NO one device that will do it all for best results. I have 3 devices, Dune, Roku & HTPC that access my servers.
For top priority I run two Unraid servers separating the content. Movies & Music Videos on one and TV shows and Documentaries on a second one.
For Navigation I use Zappiti on the Dune and emby (Media Browser) on the HTPC and Roku's Media Player for the Roku.
A few times a week I update the different Video cataloging and Video walls with Meta data to reflect what I have watched this week. If you can't remember what you watched in a week I am afraid you are past the enjoyment of what the entertainment industry presents us with.
As an alternative you may want to do binge watching as that does not require remembering watched TV episodes. Here is one example. I love Suits but will not watch Season 5 until the Bluray discs are released and then I will store the discs on my TV server and binge watch season 5 in a few days. Then I will mark the whole season as watched.
Sometimes you have to listen and try out what people who make a living of this recommend, since they are trying to convince you that it is in your best interest to follow their advise and only after a long time will you acknowledge that their advise actually was the best way forward.
