5.0 out of 5 stars Plex Media Server runs like a champ, April 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After some hesitation I decided to begin replacement of my current PMS. Exploring the NUC and Asus Chromebox led me what could give me the most bang for my buck. Perfect for whole house streaming at 720P as well as my new Squeezecenter server.

Ingredients:
1. Asus Chromebox
2. Another 2GB dimm
3. Old 500GB external USB

Boot into dev mode, patch Seabios, Chrubuntu install 10GB partition, modify boot settings so it'll boot direct into Ubuntu without intervention. Once you have your new environment you can grab PMS. Had an issue with permissions on using the external drive formatted with HFS+. Get hfsprogs, add plex to your user's group and ensure that plex has RW to your new mountpoint. Update /etc/fstab with a new mount off root with hfsprogs. If you are going to run squeezecenter add that user to your group as well.

Tested on gigabit network, 2 720P streams going with streaming to my Squeezebox. Clients running off Roku 3. Unsupported apps work just fine. Very pleased with the results. If you were looking to spin up a low power, low cost PMS then this has the NUC beat hands down. The performance out of this little Celeron has me quite impressed. Nerd out.

as most others have already put up their thoughts on the book i thought i'd drop a few words for others. yes, this worth picking up. if you were reading his blog in the past then you have an idea where these stories are coming from. jude is blunt and honest to a fault, you may not agree with dude's actions but you can respect how he handles himself. pontiac bukowski to go with your kombucha. stay off the sherm kids.

1.0 out of 5 stars No self respecting yachtsman nor soft rock enthusiast would be caught dead in this thing., August 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is not what I was expecting. Cheap materials, shoddy construction. This may work around Halloween and that is it. You cannot ease back in your adirondack sipping on Contreau and coconut milk and think you anywhere but a costume party. No bueno.
