The new generation Apple TV is finally here. I recently celebrated my birthday and on the "nerdy" wish list i had an Apple TV. All my friends were wondering why i suddenly went back to wanting an Apple product. Well this review is going to tell you why.
I have managed to get a hold of the Nexus Player, the device is yet to be officially released in Norway but some selected stores are selling the American version. Here is a short review after my first couple of days with the unit.
Just last month Logitech announced their Harmony Living Home lineup. The new remotes are taking a big step towards total home control. Logitech have long been the king of controlling AV equipment through IR, RF or Bluetooth.
This has been a special month, first my Windows home server started to show signs of a close death. This resulted in me buying my qnap NAS. the following week my Samsung Galaxy S4 decided to quit on me and the same evening my Asrock Vision HTPC got a blue screen and died as well. I have not yet investigated the HTPC failure but i suspect that the SSD drive has failed somehow. I was looking into changing out this computer anyways so this was a good opportunity to try something new.
So here it goes, my firs blog post in English. Reason being is that a lot of people on the QNAP and Plex user forum have requested more inputs regarding the matter i am going to write about.
I have been a windows home server user for many years. When Windows home server (WHS) came along it had a built in duplication method for data redundancy, this was removed in Windows Home server 2011, but third party applications later came with similar functionality. The duplication method meant that you would create a pool of hard drives effectively halfing your storage pool capacity for backup, At the time i didn't have a lot of data on the server, so that wasn't a problem for me. Media files have grown in size by time as HD became a standard and 4K resolution is going to take over.
Tidligere var jeg en stolt eier av nesten 700 DVDer og Bluray titler. Verden har gått videre og behovet for å kunne ha tilgang til mine medier til enhver tid har blitt mer og mer fremtredende.
Jeg var en stor bluray fan og ønsket å ha best mulig kvalitet på filmene jeg skulle se, teknologien og tilgangen på filmer og serier i god kvalitet var ikke komplett. Men nå er saken en annen. Plex mediaserver er en klient som kjører på en PC/Mac eller NAS boks. Filmer, serier, bilder og videoer gjøres tilgjengelig for streaming til ulike enheter. Det finnes dedikerte apper til PC, Mac, Android, iOS, windows 8, Samsung Smart TV, Roku, DLNA støttede enheter m.m.
