I want a freeNAS/PLEX server. im moving back into my parent's house, and while i'm there I want to revamp their media/internet/cable set up. They currently have 3mbps down and .5 up.... but comcast is going to come and lay down cable for 100down and 20 up, i think at $140 a month.... pricey, but whatever.
They currently pay $140 a month for cable, phone, and internet.
i want to set up a computer to capture HD tv, and then send it to the freeNAS box. I want the freeNAS box to then be able to stream 1080p media to 4 devices simutaneously.
Is this build the cheapest I can make it? in a tek syndacate video, they were talking about a plex server with an atom avaton 8core chip that comes integrated on a mobo for $350. Idk if that will be powerful enough to support 4 1080p streams.. maybe 4 1080p streams is overkill..... what do you guys think?
>the xeon E3 1230 v2 has a passmark score of 8842, and runs at 69 watts
>plex recommends a minimum passmark score of 2000, per 1080p stream
>tek syndicate video said that the avaton 8core processor easily supported 1080 streams to two tablets simutaneously, below is a link.
also, the ram i have selected isnt ECC ram, but there is kingston ECC ram for $165 on ebay, so i selected this ram because it was the same price.
people recommend WD reds, but is that just a circle jerk thing? I would like the data (family photos and videos) to be safe, but I can always have an extra copy on an external backup... should i save money by getting different harddrives? is 4TB going to be enough to maintain a DVR library?
I'm thinking of setting up a simple home server
Anyone know where I can find a good guide and info about it?
I really wonder what the point of a home server is.
I personally have nothing worth backing up, and everyone keeps talking about 'media' servers, but for example for plex, you have to pay money to get the app on a mobile device.
Using it as a torrent box will result in a nice ISP bill and/or jail time. Seriously, what's the point?
If you aren't watching child pornography then why do you care so much about privacy? So Google knows what you search, big deal, billions of people are probably searching the same thing and Google has more things to spend time on than that neckbeard searching for dragon dildos. Only time someone would personally take interest is if you're doing something illegal.
If I want to program a black hole,
how would I do it?

Now post yours.

I don't see the point in partitioning a drive into multiple sections just for different file types, that's what folders are for.
OP here, but I haven't partitioned anything.
So, why do people hate Opera aside from being closed source and the low market share?
After 2 years of Chrome (and randomly switching to firefox to see if it's appealing at all, which it isn't for me as of now), I'm trying Opera, which is pretty similar to Chrome with built in stuff. What's exactly so bad about it?
Look, I can understand that. I'm just saying because some people still don't care about it being closed source but still find it flawed.
I have to say, ever since Opera 11 it was constantly crashing for me. Sure it was good, but it wasn't pleasant to have more than 10 crashes in a single day, every day.
How do I make chromium be less botnet?
Chromium isn't a "botnet"
You can even de "botnet" chrome if you want just disable a couple of things that class it as a "botnet"
Now stop referring to botnet in that sense that's not what it means.
We had a nice thread the other day, unfortunately I was very, very late to the party.

What are your daily writers?
What are your specialty writers?

why is it free?
especially for the pirated software
its not like they have much competition
Only for a year.
It's basically to compete with Linux distro's.
