Plex in an RV via Synology and the HP Stream Mini Desktop

Using the HP Stream Mini Desktop, Plex and Synology on the go. Not apps, in vehicles! This is a great hardware and networking show.  There is a lot to discuss.  See the hardware links below.

Dewain Robinson takes us through his setup and how he synchronizes and views content from his home to his “home away from home.”

Plex, Power, and NAS on Home Server Show 283

Power outages either cause problems or reveal them so @JCollison and I are talking power.  I’ve also got some Plex on NAS info for you as well as a follow up on Otixo and CloudHQ.  Lastly, CloudBerry Labs has some DeDupe for us! I’ll fill you in.
