With my kids off to college and my wife and I often travelling, I decided to give remote access/streaming a try.  The only glitch I encountered was that I needed to bypass cloudflare. Once I did that Emby 3.0.7200.0 connected and streamed (direct) flawlessly from a Foxconn R20-S4 Atom 330 dual-core with 2GB memory and SSD disk running Windows Homeserver 2011 (through a Linksys E2000 w/ddt-wrt v24-sp2 and Comcast 25mbs service) to my college kid's PC across the state. Her comment was "better than YouTube."  She was streaming the Bablylon 5 series (MPEG-4 720x480, AC-3) which I have on a 1TB WD USB drive attached to the Homeserver.  CPU rarely went above 25% and total memory ran about 50% (while logged in to the remote Windows GUI). 


Nice job.
