Dual hex-core 2.8GHz Opteron based server, running Debian Stable off a Samsung evo 850 SSD with 7 x 3TB 7200rpm drives in RAID 6 with a hot spare.

Media organised and served by Plex, FTA TV served by an HDHomerun dual tuner.

Streaming duties are shared by my Yamaha amp (Pandora), Roku 3 and Asus Nexus Player (YouTube and Plex to tv), and various android devices elsewhere in the house. The TV, xBox360, Ps3 and Ps4 offer alternatives for streaming in a pinch, and a separate DVD player (region unlocked) and Bluray player (purchased pre Ps4) round out the playback options.
