hi. i have an external hard drive that is set up through my router on my home network. i would like to store all my movie and music files on this hard drive and be able to access it through plex without my laptop having to be on. does anyone know of a way to do this?
The Plex clients need to talk to the Plex server, which needs to be running on a Windows/OSX or Linux machine somewhere on your home network. Unless you have "another" machine somewhere to run the server, you'll need to have your laptop running to run the server.

I may as well plug the external into the tv, or the sony google tv box.
