I want to build the perfect cheap Plex client
I've just started to brainstorm the perfect Plex client for me. This maybe not necessarily be perfect for everyone. I have been waiting for Plex to support HD Audio for a very long time before I build a few clients and now the time has come!
Playback .mkv with support for VC-1 and H.264
Playback HD Audio (DTS-HD MA and TrueHD)
Must not be super laggy
It would be nice if it could be powerful enough to run a server but doesn't need to be able to transcode
Heres the cheapest I have come up with so far
Rosewill RS-MI-01 (includes 250W power supply)
SanDisk ReadyCache 32GB SSD
Optional: Pulse Eight CEC adapter
Total = ~$230 with CEC adapter (~$270 with CEC adapter)
However, I am wondering if it would be cheaper on some sort of ARM device like maybe the CubieBoard. Not sure if these can handle HD Audio however.
Anyone else have any ideas on making the perfect Plex Client?
