    I recently integrated some Plex in my house, and so far it's pretty nice. It's not professional equipment or anything though.

    (if images don't auto-resize to something smaller, I'll fix it)

    This is my main computer that hosts the media. I also have a standing desk setup with a mini-trampoline going on with it:

    Downstairs, I have my dance computer that was once dedicated to StepMania. Now it does Plex Home Theater as well:

    And in my dining room, I have an old (stipped) Dell Latitude D610 that's hooked up to a TV:

    Zzdl55P.jpg

    And a close-up of the laptop (basically just took the screen and keyboard off and put a fan on it since the old one died):

    My mom also has a laptop and Chromecast in her room she could use for Plex, and I have a smaller TV with a Chromecast too that I sometimes use, and we both have Nexus 7s.

    The laptop and downstairs computers run Lubuntu. Main computer runs Ubuntu.

    My setup could easily win the most low-key award :P 

    Just an Zyxel NSA310 (yes.. I know it's unsupported but pffttttt) running Plex Media Server

    Android apps on my Galaxy Tab 2 and Nexus 5

    The built in Plex support on my LG 2012 TV

    And not to mention the various PCs with web interfaces.

    may I ask why the chromecast? Is there an advantage compared to the samsung smart tv app then?

  • - NaDs- NaDs Members, Plex Pass Posts: 519 Plex Pass
    I find the shuffle feature on the samsung plex app does not work as I would like it to
    Plus the samsung app does not have a skip to next file button, you can only seek to the end of each file

    With that, I use the Chromecast to shuffle music videos and shuffle all my tv shows and movies quickly when I just want to browse my collection

    80% use would be with samsung plex app
    20% use would be with chromecast

    Wow, I'm actually so amazed by all these wonderful set-ups. It really keeps the flow of a home theatre.

    Hi guys,

    The heart/PMS is on the 2 bay Synology DS710+ which now houses 2x2TB. To the DS710+ i have hooked up the 5 bay expansion unit DX513 which currently holds 2x3TB (one more 3TB incoming). When the last HD arrives this will give me 10TB storage capacity with the redundancy of one HD. The maximum theoretical storage capacity of this setup is 42TB. An extra 2TB USB drive for backup is visible in the image too.
    I have opted for a wired gigabit setup with the DLink DIR-655 to my 2009 MacMini that runs the PMC in the living room and the 2011 iMac with PMC too in the bedroom. I control the macs via Apple remote v2 which works fine.
    Yes, I have taped the disturbing LEDs...

    The MacMini is connected to the SONY STR-DN1000 Receiver via HDMI for video and optical audio. This supports all types of video, even 3D on the Panasonic VT-50 plasma. The Receiver as well as a Sony DVD Recorder RDR-HX1010, a Panasonic BlueRay DMP-BDT220, a XBOX360 and the cableTV box resides below the TV in the white cupboard controlled via a cheap IR remote.
     

    I also use Plex on my iOS devices. Works just fine.

    The speakers are the Bose Acoustimass 5 supported by a AudioPro Subwoofer for extra grunt. Also AudioPro for the centre speaker and the surround speakers. Maybe not top notch, but quite sufficient for my needs.

    I have been using PLEX since 2009 and hasn't looked back since.

    Since nobody has added to this thread for a while, I thought I'd take a shot at being the latest "Plexhibitionist."  

    This is my quiet little studio/theatre, where I like to spend a lot of my time.

    It's usually pretty dark, with some great mood lighting, but I shot these with a flash so you could see around.

    [attachment=43409:Theatre Shot with Flash.JPG]

    And a close up of the workspace:

    [attachment=43410:Desk Shot with Flash.JPG]

    With a little more information (added on 04-09-15):

    [attachment=47577:Desk Shot with Annotation.jpg]

    The Stereo Studio Monitors are for my desktop work, and there is a separate 5.1 Surround system for the 10' diagonal projection screen.  There are two levels of theatre seating to the left, just out of camera view.  Heavy drapes and 8 wall mounted acoustical panels make for an almost silent recording environment (and a peaceful place to just chill).

    My Current Plexistence:
    Server: Intel i5, 14x3TB Internal Drives, Win-10, running PMS, PlexPy, PlexWeb, PHT, PMP, Plex for Windows 
    27" Samsung Monitor and Vivitek HD/3D Projector, 10' Diagonal Fixed Screen
    Dell Laptop: Win-10, running PlexWeb, PHT, PMP, and Plex for Windows
    Samsung 55" LED TV: Samsung Plex App
    Vizio 50" UHD TV: Vizio Plex App
    Samsung 40" LED TV: Samsung Plex App
    Tablet PC: Windows 8.1 Mobile App
    Motorola Droid: Android App

    How did you manage to get that TV there? What about temperature at night and such?

    Electriction installed power point behind tv and just wall mounted it.
    I live in Australia where the temperature does not change that much....
    Was thinking about getting a cover for it when not in use.
    Not to worried about it tho because it's pretty protected from the elements.

    That sounds great! I was thinking about something portable for the garden / veranda. But as I live in the Netherlands it won't ever be a TV because all we have is rain. So I kept searching and searching until I found the best portable Plex experience out there:

    IMG_0373.jpg

    The Plex Media server is a Dell T3500 with 2TB storage. 12GB RAM and 2 XEON processors. Running Ubuntu Server 14 like a charm. 

    In the living room stands a simple Samsung 40 inch TV with the excellent Plex app. We all love it!

    This is my initial build. Just something simple. I am in the planning phase to build a high end HTPC. Would love if someone with vast expirence on building systems around plex would not mind reaching out to me so that I can run some ideas and gain some insight from them.

    Semper FI!
