Totally agree with regards to wifi, my premise is, if it doesn't leave the house, then it gets a cable! (although loads of switch boxes around the flat drive me nuts!)
 
It was in store in Sainsburys. Sorry about the late reply I have been busy.

Thanks for the comments on the setup. When I decided I needed a media server I looked at a lot of the huge great crates people were running and thought why? I figured that all a machine needs to be able to do is move data around a network and manage a very simple MySQL database. I have actually been pushing this machine a little harder and it still doesn't break a sweat, it can still serve up video to all 5 Kodi clients in the house and download/encode video using get_iplayer over ssh whilst doing it.
HTPCs: RPI 2B & 3B+ running LibreELEC 9.x.x
