Thanks for the reply. Yeah I was attempting to get up and running on my old Raspberry Pi to try and lower power consumption. Its proven quite challenging to get my NAS drive mounted to it and now I have discovered that I have been a bit silly as Plex was only installed on a 8GB SD.
I had set it so all of my temp transcoding was going to my NAS, which I really think was slowing the whole process down now.
All of my devices are wired so hopefully my LAN isn’t slowing anything down.
If there isn’t much difference between the Pi’s I might try and make use of a Zotac Nano ID63 Intel Core i3 box, which has 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. This should be more than enough.
I’m still a learner with Linux so my next challenge I think will be to try and do something with the power management. I would really like the server to sleep when Plex isn’t in use and then wake up when someone connects. I hope this is possible.
