PLEX Media Center

I have spent the better part of 11 years trying to setup the ultimate Media Center for home. It all started with the XBOX using XBMC¬†back in 2003 and slowly worked my way into a Windows 7 computer running Windows Media Center using (2) XBOX 360’s as extenders. I also had to run Tversity, PlayOn and AirPlay to stream all the different codec’s but was never perfect.

This weekend I took the step back to find a single solution for all my devices and setup PLEX. I started by reloading my home computer to Ubuntu 13.10. After purchasing a Roku 3 my dreams of the perfect Media Center are now complete. I am using a Wii U, Roku 3, (2) Android Nexus’s, (2) Samsung Galaxy S4’s, an iPad 1st gen and a LG Smart TV. With the PLEX Media Center I was able to set up multiple accounts and stream different content to each account using shared folders which created base¬†parental controls. The other great thing is that I can access all this media from away from home with any of the Android or Apple devices.

If we ever plan on going on a trip we can also take the Roku 3 since it’s so small and hook it up to a TV to watch movies, and or TV shows on the road. Finally after years of waiting and hoping I am finally there and can play any mkv, mp4, avi, and even subtitles if need be!! Thank you PLEX for the option of Life Time Membership!! I will sell more people on this wonderful entertainment system!!
