Hi all, long time Emby user but first time poster. I love what you have built - thank you.
I'm trying to wrap my head around a suitable Emby Server that I can use with the Emby client on my Shield TV.
My current configurationis a Shield TV 16GB as both my client and my server with ethernet connection to a Synology DS216SE for file storage.
This works ok most of the time but I feel it really really struggles to do both jobs well at the same time. (I get video image distortion issues on all playback. With 4K DD Atmos videos it just chews up the 7GB free internal drive space with temp transcoding files after like 20 minutes of play.)
For that reason I would like to upgrade, but I dont want to spend 100s of dollars to something that wont make any difference.
I'm currently living on 3GB of storage for my media quite comfortably.
My confusion would be around, should I get a NUC or a NAS or another suggestion to run Emby Server on? (Lots of suggestions in other threads on models for those choices, I just dont know which choice to make.)
What speed drives/configuration should go in those that would not cause a bottle neck? (Ideally cheap as possible, but I spend more if I am getting a good bang-for-buck value.)
Any suggestions here would be great, thanks in advance!
