My humble setup
#1
Finally I had time to make (more or less) nice pictures of my setup.
Kodi Player is fanless and my NAS is low noise so I don't hear it at the corne of the living room.

What do you think?

NAS was running FreeNAS but after I got a Server 2012 license very cheap I switched.
Company went bankrupt and I grabbed me a license during the sale Tongue

Why eek?
It's because I couldn't get the intel driver for the Coffee Lake CPU running with hw accelration in Ubuntu 16.
So I upgraded to 18 and it runs smoothly now Smile

Running Server 2016, cheap licence here too. But that's mainly for the hypervisor. All my 'Servers' are virtual. My Media Server runs Ubuntu 16.04 with NFS.

There was a point in the server's history though running Server 2016 as a file sharing server, but the FOSS fanboy in me won out, and the entire entertainment backend and frontend is now completely FOSS.

I just like seeing how other people solve the same issue and how it's deployed Nod

Not so much difference here ^^
But my shares are via SMB.
