Windows 10 with a Ryan 2700x and 48gb ram.... #flex. One Ubuntu vm use 16gb of ram and has all my docker containers (sickrage tautuilli, Nextcloud etc.)

I did have my Plex on that vm, but on the baremetal it uses the flu.

Maybe a Ryzen and even a GPU? 🤣🤣

On windows chrome will have consumed 47.5GB of that ram.

Yeah i couldn't remember the model of the gpu.  DIdn't originally plan to have a discrete GPU, but happy now that I did.  Pity hyper-v can't pass through the GPU or I would have left plex on ubuntu/docker.

FreeNAS box for storage then a Dell R620 running ESXi with an Ubuntu VM running docker for Plex/Sonarr/Radarr etc.

 

Usually only have 1 or 2 streams from Plex so CPU usage isn't too much of an issue.

HP Microserver Gen8 + Windows Server 2016 Plex 

 

RAM: 16GB ram 

 

CPU: Xeon E3 1265L (More than enough most people can direct stream to us so transcoding is not a priority)

 

Storage: 21TB+12TB = 33TB Storage in X2 drobos 

 

DVB-T PCI-e card

 

NOT A PERFECT SETUP looking at changing to a supermicro chassis with loads of drive bays but $$$

SirHumphreyAppleby:

 

I'd list this as a disadvantage. Kodi seems to make a mess of things.

 

 

It can be a massive mission to get it all sorted, I don't rely on the automatic scraping in Kodi/Emby etc, I agree they make way too much of a mess of things.

 

Use something like TinyMediaManager to do the scraping, you can check its correct, make changes and then save the results to NFO files that Kodi and Emby will read instead of scraping themselves.
