    Plex is a server you setup or build at home that can host all your media... movies, TV shows, documentaries, music collection, personal pics and videos, etc. You're then able to watch them using any device you currently have, like Macs/PCs, streaming boxes, smart TVs, mobile devices, etc.

    Plex owners are typically people with large collections of CD, VCD, DVD, and Blu-Ray that they can rip and then stored in a media library in Plex. They can then stream those media to any of their preferred devices, like you would Netflix or Spotify. They can do so locally or even when you're outside your home.

    Plex Pass enables advanced features not available in the free version.

    Got the PlexPass too! Also transferred my Plex database from a Mac mini to a QNAP NAS. Hardware decoding is now a reality with the PlexPass. ;-)

    Anybody using DTT TV tuners that work with Plex? Was thinking of getting rid of our Skycable subscription and just use Plex's Live TV feature using a TV tuner, even with the limited digital TV channels.
