  1. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    I've got an old PC build that I've decided to convert into a simple media server running Windows with Plex Media Server. Nothing fancy, but I want it to be reliable. So far I've asked friends who are experts in servers, HTPCs, and more and I keep getting vastly different advice from each of them...
  2. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    Hi, I set up Foobar2000 as a server and a control point to play on DAP as a renderer, through BubbleUPnP software. I can play music, using Foobar2000 UPnP controller, because the DAP only works as a renderer. The problem is that it only plays one song then stops. I have to manually click next...
  3. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    After lots or research I decided to use unRAID and PLEX for my first real dedicated media server build. The server will also perform some backup functions. I have been messing around with the idea for a few years. Jon S helped me out a lot in the Ripping BluRays II thread, thank you (I went...

    Hey all! I built a server two years ago for my decently large movie collection (~500). It's a proper Linux (Debian) machine currently running a raid6 array (hardware raid), with 8 drives installed and 8 more bays available. Plus there are two OS drive bays in the rear. It is a wonderful machine...
  7. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    I'm wondering if there is such a thing as a media server that receives two incoming streams (from the same source using two different internet connections) and which can combine them into a single stable feed to display on the big screen. I'm asking about this because we need to live-stream...
  8. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    Hey everyone, I'm looking to move my media server from a mini-ITX case that has 4 hot swap bays into a rack mountable case that has at a minimum of 8 hot swap bays. I'm looking for a shallow depth case that would go in more of an A/V rack and not a typical full depth server rack. I was...
