Building a Nas help

Recommended Posts

we_r_mighty

I recently upgraded a mini pc for my parents and I have the old one its an hp elitedesk 705 g3 mini and dont really know what to do with it was thinking of using it as the heart for a nas to run my emby, now not sure if it would be best to keep it with windows 10 and install emby to it and run it that way or to just make it a nas and just connect a large das via usb 3.0 to it and house it all in my media center under my tv as its open with good air flow, more of a project than anything else and but would like it to work well if I start it any thoughts or suggestions?

Are you planning to run Emby Server on it? Will you need to transcode? Record TV?

 

I hate to ask questions rather than answer yours but it is hard to answer without a more clear idea of your needs and expectations.

no problem happy to answer, maybe some light transcoding, primarily just to run Emby on it and backup some personal files, and not really going to be recording tv or at least not planning on it
