    Hi
    I am currently running Xpenology as my O/S and Sabnzbd as my download manager. I use Couch Potato (Movies), Sonarr (TV Series) and Headphones (Music) and of course Plex Media Server as my media server.
    Although my system is totally automated I am curretly looking at purchasing the UNRAID 6.2 O/S and converting my whole system.
    Cheers

    Hi IPraderi
    well in the UK you can get servers pretty cheap with cashback deals, the nett price of my barbones Microserver gen 8 was about £110 and the Dell Poweredge T20 was £90 then the cost of CPU upgrade and adding WD reds. I am now running the Unraid 6.3 and loving it, I can run any other OS I want as VM in a docker.
    Cheers
