Comment Plex baybee! + Roku, etc. (Score 1) 226

I've been running Plex on a Synology DS1812+ for some years now and I wouldn't have it any other way. I use my various Android devices, PCs, Roku boxes (various models) and a Chromecast to watch my shows, and I just ordered a Fire tv box which I expect to arrive tomorrow. Can't say as I have a preference at the moment - we'll see how the Fire stands up against the Rokus. The Chromecast worked well for me on my last trip, but I don't expect it to see much use outside of that.

Comment Re:Plex on Roku (Score 1) 128

I have my Rokus pretty well pimped out - Plex, PlayOn, tons of channels, and a wireless router configured to allow VPN access to virtually any country so I can watch region blocked vids when I want. Plus I'm learning how to write channels for Plex in Python, which is pretty cool. Maybe ActionScript is next, or maybe I'll improve my LUA skills for writing Playon channels (and World of Warcraft add-ons).

Cord cutting and skills honing, a win-win situation for me!
