My Hardware

I bought an HP Microserver Gen 8 as an upgrade to my Gen 7 when HP had £100 cash back offer on, so net price was £99, upgraded memory to 2 x 4gig EEC and upgrapded CPU to Xeon E3 1220L low power and heat (17w tdp). I am really happy with this set up for my server - I just wish my Fibre was better :(

For the clients I use an Amazon fire tv box (fantastic) a Roku XS (good) and Sony Smart TV (buggy).
the Ipad client app gives me issues frequently but when running its great. On laptop I use PMC but on my main PC I use Plex Home Theatre (which I love).
