I currently have 1 server running ESXI, 1 synology NAS and 1 computer running windows with plex media server and plex media player connected to my TV
I would really like to shrink this down to 1 server running unraid
So my question is ...
Is it possible to run both Plex Server AND Plex Media Player on Unraid and connect it to my Tv ?
Short answer is... it should be possible (I think). Don't expect it to be easy or completely documented somewhere though. You're going to need to figure out how to pass your GPU through to your PMP VM (Windows/Linux/whatever) hosted on unRAID.
I think it would be a lot less of a headache to run PMS on unRAID or ESXi and have a Roku/aTV/rPi/something else to handle player duty at the TV.
I currently have an Ubuntu VM on ESXi running PMS, all my Movies/TV are on a physical unRAID box and I have a variety of Apple/Roku/Chromecast/PMP/etc clients at my various TVs. I personally don't like running other services on top of my file storage due to unpleasant experiences in the past (though it was back on unRAID v5) where a plug-in crashed my storage array. I'm sure things are better, but I like having my server, storage and clients all segmented like this.
Update: I love it when you google for something, and you find a thread you posted in :)
