Looking for Advice


Post by Rickt1962 » Sun Jan 09, 2022 3:43 pm

I have a WD Mycloud with 4 drives plugged into it and it is not strong enough to handle My MCE with KODI to raspberries .
Since now I have several TV that are smart TV's with PLEX .
So I have couple of empty tower PC's with 8 bays
Thinking about installing a FREE NAS software to a SD drive in tower and tear out the the Drives from the mobile USB drives install them to the tower.

My Movies and TV shows are in individual folders with Poster art and Fan art with a NFO file.

What would you recommend for FREE NAS so I could install PLEX server on it. Not sure how that works with the PLEX on each TV.
Because running KODI on devices like FireStick they run out of memory.
Library Folder Movies with over 7000 of them
TV show folder has over 40,000 episodes

Any help would be appreciated. :)
